* ExactWords: One of the missions Lennon gave Riki and Rin involved curing a student named Aikawa of [[AllLoveIsUnrequited his love sickness towards Sasami]]. It got to the point where he was too distracted by her to be able to focus on his studies. At first, Riki and Rin interpret this as playing TheMatchmaker for the two. However, because of Sasami's interest in Kengo, they fail on that end, though in the process, Aikawa manages to study properly once he realizes Sasami isn't interested in him. Riki realizes this still qualifies as completing the mission since it said to cure Aikawa's love sickness, not get him a girlfriend.

* DaddyDNATest: [[spoiler:Haruka's initial goal in her route is to try and get one of these done to prove whether she or Kanata is the family's rightful heir and who is the "bad one." Their parents refuse to submit one unless they're approached by both sisters, because they know the family has kept the girls apart and turned them against each other and that submitting a DNA test would just encourage that.]]

* GuideDangIt: '''Saya Route.''' There are so much FailureIsTheOnlyOption in it, it's not even funny.
** The first time you go through Rin's route, the end screen tells you to go back and make the choice you didn't made before. You think the game is telling you to start again and go through her route again using different choices, right? Nope. If you actually do this you discover that there's no choice screen at all at that point. You have to go through her route for the second time only after completing the other girls routes, so Riki can make the choice in question... [[FacePalm automatically]]. [[spoiler: Let Rin go to another school]].
* GratuitousEnglish: Kud loves to drop random English phrases (with "nano desu" for extra {{Moe}}).

* GratuitousEnglish: Kud loves to drop random English phrases (with "nano desu" for extra {{Moe}}). Haruka does it, too, but not as often, and usually with a better grasp of the language.



* HiddenInPlainSight: In Saya's route, she keeps watch on Riki's baseball practices while hiding behind a wooden barrel in a large grass field. It's kind of hard to say if she's trying hard to hide, though, considering that if the ball goes nearby her she'll come out and shoot the ball with her gun. [[FailedASpotCheck It's pretty amusing how nobody ever catches on at all.]]
** Even more amusing since one of her own phrases during the baseball practice is somewhere along the lines of "Perfectly Hidden. No one can see me here."

* IsThatCuteKidYours: In Haruka's route, she and Riki find a lost child in the school when the disciplinary committee catches up with her. Haruka being an immoral delinquent who knows no bounds according to the prefects, they immediately assume that it's ''her'' kid and that she's "flaunting her sexual deviance in school".

* MultipleEndings: [[spoiler:But not in the way you'd think. All of the route endings are canon as different iterations of the timeline - except Sasami's which, as explained above, happens after Refrain - but Refrain's epilogue is slightly but importantly different the first and second time you play through it. In the first, Rin asks Riki who he likes, and approves of all of the other girls, while he is too flustered to respond, which all seems to indicate that at least he and Rin aren't going out. But the second time around, you are shown a scene in which Rin kisses Riki, which naturally indicates that they are.]]

* BleachedUnderpants: Inverted with [[UpdatedRerelease Ecstasy]], which added graphic sex scenes to a previously all ages game. And then played straight with the PS2, PSP and PSV versions, along with a limited edition rerelease of the PC version - they have all the extra routes and other content of Ecstasy, excluding all of the porn.
