* ColorBlindConfusion: PlayedForDrama where Satoko and Satoshi Hojo are both color blind and cannot tell broccoli from cauliflower as a result, which results in a scene where BigBad [[spoiler:Miyo Takano]] asks Satoko which of the two is green while pointing a gun at her head, and after panicking Satoko picks at random. [[spoiler:She's correct, but Takano [[MortonsFork shoots her dead anyway]]]].

*BullyingADragon: [[spoiler:Once you know that the events of Onikakushi-hen are tainted by Keiichi's paranoia, it still doesn't change the fact that Rena and Mion take a few of their jokes way too far with him. Particularly bad in Rena's case since she's been through Keiichi's situation before, and thus knows what he's going through; therefore, by all rights, she should know the last thing she needs to do right now is feed his paranoia by reaching in the crack of the door and trying to unlatch the chain.]]

** The scene in ''Onikakushi-hen'' where Keiichi (and the viewer) first learn of the string of murders:
--->'''Tomitake''': Where's Rena going?\\
'''Keiichi''': ''(joking and oblivious)'' She's probably checking on the corpse she cut up over there.\\
'''Tomitake''': Ah, yes. That was a terrible incident. I hear they still haven't found one of the arms.

*** Satoko has visible breasts, which would be uncanny for a 9 year-old; you can assume she's between 11 and 13. In the puzzle section of ''Matsuribayashi'', Rika's mother also mentions that her daughter's growth is abnormally slow, making her childish appearance plausible despite being Satoko's age.
*** According to at least the anime, Rena was fifteen in most of the arcs. Keiichi is sixteen and thus Mion, Shion, and Satoshi are.

The year is 1983. When Keiichi Maebara and his family move to the sleepy [[CampbellCountry little rural village]] of Hinamizawa, everything seems peaceful and rustic at first. But Keiichi quickly learns that there is more to the four girls of the school's game club than meets the eye... and more to the town as well. Revelation follows revelation, and brutal murder follows brutal murder in this enigmatic tale told from a variety of viewpoints and scenarios. Just what links the scenarios together?

While these eight games make up the main series, several bonus chapters are available, including "Rei" (a fandisc collection of three sidestories that take place after the main plot) and a fourth, anime-only instalment, "Kira" (a series of light hearted {{fanservice}} laden [=OVAs=] that are outside of continuity). There are also several short, manga-only arcs, usually placed before or after the main story and introducing new characters, while retaining the typical atmosphere of the series. These arcs were adapted with some new ones for the NintendoDS under the title ''Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kizuna'' (2008).

** [[spoiler:Regarding Satoshi, he is never revealed to have woken up, but it's strongly implied as Shion visits the Irie clinic quite often, and brings male clothes, and other male items, probably razors, etc.]]

* LoveTriangle: Keiichi and the ''twins''. Oh yes. [[spoiler:Though it's revealed to be a subversion. Shion was never seriously interested[[note]]If she does become interested, she goes crazy and her motivations are still about loving Satoshi, not Keiichi[[/note]], and she was either doing it to hurt Mion or encourage her to act on her feelings, depending on the timeline. In Meakashi-hen, it's implied that she's attracted to Keiichi due to his similarities to Satoshi, and that makes her hate him even more.]] In later arcs and ''Higurashi Daybreak'', Shion is replaced by Rena.
