Added DiffLines:

* NonIndicativeName: The "Autopsy" mode in ''Trauma Team''. A more accurate (but less snappy) name would be "Forensic Investigation", since at no point do you actually perform an autopsy beyond just looking at the corpse.

Added DiffLines:

* Played straight once in ''Under The Knife'', where one tells Sidney off for shipping life-saving GUILT medication to various hospitals because they aren't FDA approved yet.

Added DiffLines:

* ShutUpHannibal: [[BigBad Adam]] gets a lot of this from Derek and Naomi
--> '''Adam''': "Man crawls on the earth like vermin, only breeding and fighting for all eternity. Yet you dare judge them... You, who lost the ability to die."
--> '''Derek''': What's that even supposed to mean?!

* NintendoHard: It's an {{Atlus}} game, what did you [[ThatOneBoss/{{Atlus}} expect]]. They finally had to cave and add an easy mode in the sequels. It'll still break your arm. It seems that many of the operations in ''New Blood'' were designed around having two players, ''and'' both Healing Touches available, so operating alone can be a daunting task even though it is possible.

*** Deftera's manipulation is vaguely mentioned in the manual for both ''Under the Knife'' and ''Second Opinion''. Their manuals say that the Antibiotic Gel can be used to manipulate or block parasites respectively, which is what Deftera is.



*** However, Deftera can be manipulated with the Antibiotic Gel. [[GuideDangIt If you read]] [[AllThereInTheManual the manual]] for ''Under the Knife'', it tells you that parasites tend to avoid it.



*** More than a little justified, though. [[spoiler:The entire operation is pretty much first aid, with the exception of the defib - just removing bullets from the skin and suturing.]]
*** And even that's heavily lampshaded: [[spoiler: Valerie comments the defib is made for humans, which Markus handwaves by telling her to turn the voltage down. Then when the paddles are applied, they descend as normal, hesitate, then awkwardly realign themselves as though the user is guess how to get a current across a dog's heart.]]

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** Even a Mature rated game like ''VideoGame/CompanyOfHeroes'' spends less of its playtime showing '''blood''' than this Teen rated series. The games show some pretty horrifying organ damage in downright gory detail[[note]]this has gotten less graphic as the series went on, but even ''New Blood'' shows a burst liver in more detail than most medical dramas[[/note]]. In any other game, wounds this detailed would get a Mature rating at the very least.

** In second opinion [[spoiler: Tyler (the "death doctor") was talking on the phone about ordering potassium nitrate (that you later learn he used it to give people a peaceful death]] Derek shrugs it off and assumes he's doing animal testing

* DubInducedPlotHole: Japan, America, and Europe have been swapped around quite a bit, causing a lot of confusion. First, the setting of ''Under the Knife'' was changed from Japan to America and what was previously America was changed to Europe. Not so confusing at first. Then the remake ''Second Opinion'' introduces Dr. Kimishima. Originally a doctor who's stripped of her medical license in America, moves to Japan, then bargains for amnesty back in America, she now loses her medical license in Japan, moves to America, and bargains for amnesty in Europe. Then ''New Blood'', which takes place in America in both versions, cameos Dr. Stiles, said to be from Japan in both versions. Then ''Trauma Team'', which also takes place in America, features Dr. Kimishima as a returning playable character, despite her saying that she couldn't go back there in the English ''Second Opinion''.
** That last hole is fixed in-game though - it's stated several times that Naomi is under a plea agreement with the feds - her sentence is suspended provided she supplies the FBI with support as needed.

** Developers aimed for more realism in ''Trauma Team''. The result was less BulletTime and killer parasites, but more ghosts, flying superheroes, cell phone calls from dead people, and [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot teleporting ninja butlers]].
