* SchizophrenicDifficulty: One of the most common complaints about the game. WebOriginal/ZeroPunctuation noted that roughly the entire first half consists of tutorials for the various game mechanics, followed by a massive DifficultySpike into NintendoHard territory for the last few levels.

* YourHeadASplode: Dogen did this to someone once. ''Four'' someones. Allegedly. He definitely did it to three squirrels who were saying the little guy would kill everyone. [[spoiler:By little guy, they meant Oleander.]]

**Ever wonder why the protagonist's name is Rasputin? Well with the respawn mechanic he sure is hard to kill.

** Since the 2011 Steam patch, you no longer lose lives if [[spoiler:Olly gets caught during the EscortMission]]. It's still possibly the hardest part in the game.

* ContrivedCoincidence: PlayedForLaughs in the B-sequence of the climax. [[spoiler:Edgar wraps up a painting to demonstrate his [=OCD=]'s officially cured and rips his chain out of the art studio floor so he can leave - busting a gas pipe in the process. He checks to confirm that the gas is shut off and continues on his merry way... while Gloria spots a valve in the garden and turns the gas back on due to her mistaking it for a sprinkler. Cut back to the studio and Edgar announcing offscreen that he's just "spilled all [his] turpentine and acetone". ''Then'' cut to Fred kicking open a window at the front of the asylum and jumping out to say hello to the molotov-toting PyroManiac standing at the ready by the doors...]]

--> '''Gloria (Delusionally mistakening Raz for her mother):''' Would you like me to tell you how I won that award? ...Or are you trying to take it from me, ''because you don't think I deserve it?'' I never asked to be famous - I just wanted you to ''love'' me!

* ChildrenAreInnocent: Averted to the moon and back. There's twenty-one Elementary age kids attending Whispering Rock, and just about all of them, including Raz himself, have some understanding adult things like sex, drugs, and/or alcohol. Kids can be found making out all over the place (though we can assume that's as heated as it gets), and one boy casually mentions that his parents let him watch R-rated movies. Justified, however, as many of these kids grew up in less-than-ideal living conditions and several have moderate at best hold on their sanity, and the fact that they are all psychic grants them all the ability to, uh, ''poke around''. [[spoiler: Dona has killed at least one person by detonating them with his mind, and the cheerleaders even try to commit suicide! These kids are seriously messed up]]
