* TheMerch: There are already plans for tote bags, pins, St. [=PigeoNation=] ID cards and more. Various styles of St. Pigeonation bags, shirts, cups and even a thong with Yuuya on it can be found at [[http://www.cafepress.com/hatostore/8525512 the Cafepress store]]



* ShoutOut
** [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} "Oko San used WING ATTACK! It's super effective!"]] And this is only the first of several such references when Oko San is involved.
*** Probably his best, however, is unleashed upon Sakuya on Oko's route if you side with him during an argument between the two: "'''''[[TengenToppaGurrenLagann GIGA...DRILL...BEEEEEEEEEAK!!]]'''''" Sakuya doesn't have a ''prayer'' after that one.
** In addition, Yuuya at one point says [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann "Who the hell do you think I am?"]]
*** [[spoiler: For bonus points, as he's dying, Yuuya's last words are 'Later, buddy," again calling back to Kamina.]]
** Another {{Franchise/Pokemon}} reference in Yuuya's route, followed immediately by a WesternAnimation/ToyStory one: "Blast off at the speed of light! To the maintenance office and beyond!"
** [[http://pigeonblog.wordpress.com/ Brian the Pigeon]] won multiple Pulitzer Prizes.
** The BadEnd if you don't go all the way with any romance has [[{{VideoGame/Shadowgate}} a very specific grim reaper screen]]!! It also has double exclamation marks!! Like all over the place!! And one of the inventory items is a Nintendo3DS amongst other things!!
** [[VideoGame/RecettearAnItemShopsTale "Nepotism, ho!"]]
** [[LightNovel/{{Oreimo}} OreHato: My Little Nicobar Can't Be This Cute]]
** The heroine can suggest ''Anime/NightOnTheGalacticRailroad'' to Nageki, who replies that he's already read it, though he did like it. [[spoiler:[[{{Foreshadowing}} This tells you a lot about Nageki.]]]]
** Our heroine's [[Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei in despair!]] Events that happen when she's late leaving school one day (in the full version) have left her in despair!
** In [[VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi bright red text]]: [[spoiler:I did not kill <player name>. This is true.]]
** If you choose to side with Ryouta in the cafeteria, your rage inspires Okosan to flee like a [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail rabbit from a catapult.]]
** Alternately, siding with Okosan will get you calling him [[Anime/PrincessMononoke San of the Forest]].
** The choice of wishes at Tanabata Festival (TakeOverTheWorld, rule the world from shadows, and become a famous artist) could be a shout-out to Adolf Hitler's biography.
** During one of the flashbacks in BBL route, we learn that Yuuya's stepfather killed Yuuya's biological father to have his mother. [[{{Hamlet}} That totally doesn't remind us of anything...]]
*** [[Myth/GreekMythology Nor does his response...]]
** Shuu apparently sounds like [[TheMoomins Snufkin]]. Which is understandable, considering that he is voiced by [[TakehitoKoyasu Takehito Koyasu]].
** The dialog between Shuu and Ryouta about [[spoiler: Hiyoko's head in the box]] is very similar to the final reveal of [[spoiler: Film/{{Se7en}}]].
** [[spoiler: Ryouta's battle against Anghel]] bears a resemblance to [[VideoGame/{{MOTHER|1}} a certain]] [[VideoGame/EarthBound video game]] [[VideoGame/MOTHER3 trilogy]].
** How Kazuaki, Ryouta and the protagonist [[spoiler: try]] to defeat [[spoiler: Tohri]] is somewhat similar to [[spoiler: the final battle in VideoGame/EarthBound.]]
** Mister One appears to have access to [[spoiler: {{Film/Inception}} technology]].
** Albert Alain Alkan, Sakuya's raven butler, seems very similar to [[BlackButler a different hypercompetent butler with questionable motives and a mysterious past]]. Also, which [[Franchise/{{Batman}} other badass butler, whose name starts with "Al"]], do we know?
** Then there is the in universe anime series, [[Anime/PrettyCure Pretty Coore]].
*** [[Film/ThreeHundred This! Is! PRETTY COORE!]]
** In ''Holiday Star'', apparently Hiyoko and Nageki travel [[Film/TheHobbit through dungeons deep and caverns old]].
** Also in ''Holiday Star'', we have [[Franchise/AceAttorney "I Object!", and talk of finger pointing]].
** Shuu will watch the festival fireworks, wishing that he could be [[VideoGame/DarkSouls so grossly incandescent]].

* OddFriendship: Many of these characters have such clashing personalities yet just about all of them get along fairly well with each other (except for perhaps Shuu). The drama CDs and mangas especially seem to extend on those odd friendships particularly with Anghel (the loud manga artist prone to breaking windows) and Nageki (the quiet library dweller)

* BeamOWar: The scene where [[spoiler: Tohri's cannon]] splashes against the barrier around the school.
* DeflectorShield: Courtesy of Anghel's RealityWarper powers, [[spoiler: Tohrii's attack against St. Pigeonation's]] is thwarted by a magic shield.


Added DiffLines:

* TankGoodness: [[spoiler: Miru and Kaku's method of stealing Christmas trees]]. Sakuya's security forces did not expect something so drastically powerful, and even Yuuya's CrazyPrepared high-powered rifle did little to stop it.


Added DiffLines:

* WaveMotionGun: [[spoiler: Tohri creates one, powered by fanboy/fangirl imagination through Anghel's blood.]]
* YaoiFangirl: [[spoiler: Tohri's laser]] is powered at first by standard {{otaku}}, and then by these. Unfortunately, he didn't forsee that fangirls [[ShipToShipCombat who bicker about the best pairings]] would be such an unstable power source.
