* AlwaysCheckBehindTheChair: ''La-Mulana'' really emphasizes exploration to a ludicrous degree, as finding a variety of items (like the MSX ROMs in the original game) and puzzle hints require examining everything and anything thoroughly, sometimes even including analysis of the ''backgrounds'' on specific screens.

** Perhaps most {{egregious}} is the Shrine of the Mother, in which the lowest area of the Endless Corridor takes you to the top of the area, and an entrance three floors up takes you to a lower, isolated area. Everything else can be explained with the depiction of three-dimensional space in two dimensions, but this...

* WhamShot: The game begins with exploring pseudo-Mesoamerican ruins like any good ''Franchise/IndianaJones''-wannabe, but areas like the Spring in the Sky and the Tower of Ruin seed the idea that there's something deeper to the ruins. Then the lights come on in the Tower of the Goddess and you realize you're standing in [[spoiler:a spaceship]].
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: The pistol is the go-to option if you are having trouble against bosses in the remake.

** [[spoiler:This turns out to be true for all the major areas and an essential clue for solving the Mantra puzzle. Every map can be arranged into a four-by-five grid, and rooms on one edge are considered bordering the opposite edge.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CosmeticAward: Subverted in a sadistic manner at the end of the Hell Temple in the original version. [[spoiler:You get a scene of Lemeza wearing the award, the Skimpy Swimsuit, and not only does Dracuets mock you for [[SchmuckBait pursuing a treasure that he promised you'd regret]], but after the scene ends, there is no indicator in the inventory that you even obtained the swimsuit!]] This is changed in the remake, in which [[spoiler:Lemeza gets to wear the swimsuit on his menu avatar and his gameplay sprite for the rest of the game]].

* RecurringRiff: All the boss themes start with the same sequence of notes.
** The same note sequence is used in the Chamber of Extinction, Chamber of Birth, and the fight with Palenque. It is also heard when you enter the ruins for the very first time.

* AbusivePrecursors: On closer analysis, [[spoiler:the Mother]]. If your race, which [[spoiler:the Mother]] created, isn't up to the task of [[spoiler:restoring her to the heavens]] -- [[EternalRecurrence and you won't be]] -- [[spoiler:she'll obliterate you to make room for another attempt at creating a race that ''can'' pull it off. Although, if one had been able to manage it... well, as Sakit's faction apparently realized, that means the Mother ''just abandoned her children''. Not that she really saw a point to making life on Earth ''besides'' freeing her from the place.]] This is ''definitely'' one place where she's [[{{Gnosticism}} less Sophia, more Demiurge]].
