While the game has been delisted, its creators went on to create ''Choices: Stories You Play'', an Android/iOS game that offers a variety of separate stories. One of those stories that is perhaps the closest to Cause of Death is ''VisualNovel/MostWanted''; the two have a few similarities. For one, San Trobida, a fictional location appearing in the 11th volume of Cause of Death, is mentioned early on in Most Wanted. Additionally, both of the series stare a male Detective in his home city, who is complemented by a federal agent visiting it. Apart from being contemporary murder mysteries, that's pretty much where where the similarities end.

* BackFromTheDead: A photo promoting Season 16 of Cause of Death was released on the game's official Facebook page, which only showed a line of dialogue from Mal that read "This whole time... How could you just go on letting me think you were dead?!" [[spoiler: It turns out that the photo was just a April Fool's joke, and nobody is actually coming back.]]
* {{Backstory}}: Exists in side stories for some of the main cast, and told in the later episodes of a season for that season's killer.

]]]] See FakingTheDead below for examples of faked deaths.* {{Backstory}}: Exists in side stories for some of the main cast, and told in the later episodes of a season for that season's killer.



* FakingTheDead:
** At the end of Volume 1, when The Maskmaker [[spoiler:known as Eric Mills]] is killed, it is confirmed -- and later ''reaffirmed by Mal'' in V8C1 -- that the police NeverFoundTheBody. This makes a fairly strong case that there were plans to bring The Maskmaker back... but he never did, and the series has now ended.
** During Zero's conversation with Natara in V4C7, as was reaffirmed in the very first Secret Files entry, it is believed that Genevieve Collins had adopted a son, Alexander, who had died. [[spoiler:It turns out that this "Alex" boy was a biological son and that he did not die... and he gives the protagonists ''huge'' trouble in the final four volumes of the series.]]
** The king and most notable user of this trope is [[spoiler:Shawn Mallory]]. Though to be fair, the death was fairly well foreshadowed -- just like The Maskmaker, a case of NeverFoundTheBody is confirmed in the bonus scene of V5C8. [[spoiler:Shawn is revealed to be alive, but ''badly wounded'' with greyed hair, at the end of Volume 8.]]
** At the end of the second part of ''Kai Hard'', it is presumed by everyone except Kai that [[spoiler:Kara Yan is dead]].



** Season 13: [[spoiler: The Ghost]], who had been a thorn in the side of our heroes since Volume 2.
** Season 14: [[spoiler: After 14 volumes of evading justice, Genevieve Collins is killed by the Firstborn. There's also Boone Ligaya and Emma Pointe]].
** Season 16: [[spoiler: Blaise Corso, The Firstborn, the Onryo]].



* NeverFoundTheBody: Mal mentions this trope by name in 8-1, referring to [[spoiler: Eric Mills]] when a copycat killer with a similar MO arises. [[spoiler: Shawn's body was also never found after his fake death in 5-8, which later led to the revelation of him becoming the cult leader The Kraken]] in Volume 8.
