* GetAholdOfYourselfMan: Keiichi attempts to do this to Rena about her whole [[spoiler:aliens-controlling-Hinamizawa-via-parasites]] theory and subsequent paranoia in the VN. It almost works too, until [[spoiler:Rena brings up what he did before coming to Hinamizawa]].

* ArtEvolution: Between all three seasons of the anime. Also applies for the sound novels. It's justified in the remakes since it's a different art crew, but within the remakes the ''{{Playstation 2}}'' games different from the ''UsefulNotes/NintendoDS'' ones. In the manga, each arc is drawn by a different author, so the styles will vary noticeably.

* RefusalOfTheCall: In the Playstation 2 game, if you don't have Keiichi enter any other arcs through their triggers, you end up in Taraimawashi-hen, which basically flogs you for doing this. [[spoiler:And yes, you still die]].

** In the first episode of ''Rei'', this is combined with {{Expy}} and invoked in the form of Chie-sensei pulling out wooden T squares which look a lot like [[{{Tsukihime}} Black Keys]].

** Chie-sensei, of Ciel-senpai in ''{{Tsukihime}}'', with permission from [[{{Nasuverse}} Type-Moon]]. This is lampshaded in the [[BeachEpisode Pool Episode]] with Chie whipping out imitation Black Keys in the form of wooden T-squares. In fact, this is one of her weapons in the doujin game ''Higurashi Daybreak'', and she can be selected as wearing Ciel's outfit. ** In one of the cast review sessions, Chei-sensei was acting like [[{{Tsukihime}} Ciel-senpai]] when the lights were off and no one could see the copyright infringement.

* TrademarkFavoriteFood: [[spoiler:Wine]] for Rika, (not his favorite but it's a trademark food) ohagi for Keiichi, [[{{Tsukihime}} curry]] for [[{{Expy}} Chie-sensei]], and cream puffs for Hanyuu.

* SkipTheAnesthetic: One character refuses general anesthesia in the hopes that pain will "lock" another character's face into memory, bypassing the GroundhogDayLoop.

** Faulerro of ''WebAnimation/NullmetalAlchemist'' fame made an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciaok6KmGmg Onikakushi-hen]] parody. It does [[CerebusRollercoaster NOTHING]] to deter the horror of the original, even during the blacker comedy portions.

While the eight core games were translated by [=MangaGamer=] in 2009, the translation was largely considered rather poor. However, starting in 2015, the entire series (including the eight main games, the three ''Rei'' games, and three additional unreleased games) will be given a Western release, with updated sprites and a re-translation, from the same company under the title ''Higurashi When They Cry Hou''. The first chapter can be purchased from [[http://store.steampowered.com/app/310360/ Steam]] or [[http://www.desura.com/games/higurashi-when-they-cry Desura]].

* ParentalObliviousness: Actually somewhat ''invoked'', as Keiichi seems to go out of his way to make sure his parents are oblivious to all the freaky stuff that's going on. [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop Remember, kids:]] if you're in a strange town with a brutal past, and your ''very life'' is in danger, tell a creepy old police guy about it instead of your actual parents!

* LessDisturbingInContext: ** [[spoiler:Rika's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4Ag1TAR-jc suicide]]]] is quite disturbing taken out of context, but in the context of the series, it becomes a CrowningMomentOfAwesome. A disturbing CrowningMomentOfAwesome, but at least a ''less'' disturbing one. This is done [[IntendedAudienceReaction intentionally]], because the infamous scene appears at the beginning of the fifth episode, ''before the opening sequence'', with absolutely no context, and it's not until the second half of the season that we see the events leading up to that scene. ** Inverted in the first episode with a ColdOpening that may be shocking, but isn't quite disturbing until seen in the context of the arc. And then becomes more disturbing the more context is revealed after the arc.
