* {{Foreshadowing}}: There are several hints that at the very least Maou [[spoiler:is not Kyousuke]] hidden throughout, though the truth is trickier but not impossible to figure out. For example, [[spoiler:Maou has far more money at his disposal than Kyousuke should be able to acquire, Kyousuke is not old enough to have killed Usami's mother, Maou takes actions that put Kyousuke at serious risk and the way Yuki treats the pair indicates she clearly does not view them as being the same person.]] Finally, Maou far too easily gives out [[spoiler:his 'real' name to people despite his pathological caution.]] In fact, the trick itself is used in the story itself: [[spoiler:Maou sets up a fake answer for Usami to 'discover' while the truth was always there to see and largely hidden by Usami recklessly assuming she knew the full story. Another important thing to note is that in the side-routes where Maou's plotting ends prematurely and his identity is never revealed, Usami pretty much leaves Kyousuke be despite being clearly portrayed as being obsessed with getting back at Maou and suspecting Kyousuke herself at times.]]

* InterfaceSpoiler: Played straight by the translucent text backdrop in the scenes from one of the girls' perspectives, which sports the respective girl's silhouette. [[spoiler: Subverted in order to mislead the player by using the standard, small-sized box with no silhouette when the text is from the Devil's perspective. Using the same box and perspective? Oh, Kyousuke MUST be the Devil.]]

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Maou gets clean away with his crimes and is never exposed onscreen in any route other than Haru's. However, the severity of his crimes also dwindle significantly if you choose to pursue one of the side heroines, making this an interesting example.
]]



* NonSequiturCausality: Usami is the main storyline, so the routes that branch off before you start it are the basic alternate possibilities. In them, the drama for Kanon begins because of something stupid she says that comes about as a result of increased contact with Kyousuke. Mizuha's route is just Yuki pushing her towards Kyousuke as a result of not being distracted by plot. Tsubaki? Random unconnected family pops up to loan her family money and let them keep the house. Where were these guys before and why didn't they do that in the main storyline?

* OfficialCouple: While you can techically end with any of the four girls, everyone would agree that Haru is the one who shine the most throughout the story.

* VillainProtagonist: When you think about it, Kyousuke can't really be considered to be a good guy so much as less of a bad guy in an evil versus evil situation. Lying, extortion, manipulation and more. While he's essentially a decent person the story makes a point of painting him as rather ambiguously gray [[spoiler:until he finally stands up to Gonzou so that Yuki, Usami and Mizuha can escape.]] And the yakuza he represents is actually a particularly vicious group with no concern for honor.

* DistantFinale: [[spoiler:The conclusion to Usami's Epilogue takes place eight years after Kyousuke went to prison. The end of Tsubaki's route is also set four years later. Mizuha's route skips ahead three years, a well. In fact, Kanon's route is the only one ''without'' one.]]

** For Kyousuke, his reacting with suspicion when Tsubaki visits her in the morning, followed by revealing he only barely remembers who she is despite being in the same class for three years. After this he instantly switches into an attitude where he's outwardly kind but inwardly snarky, thus highlighting the dual nature of his existence.

-->'''Usami Haru:''' And what if the criminal is a piccolo player? Then would it be ‘Piccoloist Usami’? I mean we're already talking about someone who did bad things and got arrested... adding [[DragonballZ Piccolo]] to their name is just overkill?

* {{Badass}}: Gonzou. He basically just pops up and oozes manliness and restrained violence before disappearing again throughout the story. [[spoiler: He also gets one in his dying moment.]]
** Maou as well. [[spoiler: Not only does he fake his death - ''twice'' - he is consistently two steps ahead of the protagonists, even when he finally dies for real.]]
