* AccidentalPervert: Riki

* AccidentalPervert: RikiRiki ends up in these situations a lot, particularly in Komari's route and the Ecstasy expansion.



* AkashicRecords: [[spoiler:How the dream world works. As all but Riki and Rin were OnlyMostlyDead, their minds connected to each other's and to those of the other people in their lives with this. This forms the foundation of a number of routes and provides blueprints for the "[=NPCs=]" created after real people, like family and classmates, who appear in the dream world. For example, Komari uncovering the thoughts of her family means that her route can tell Riki what happened from the perspective of someone who didn't try to forget Komari's dead brother, and Haruka connecting to Kanata's thoughts revealed that Kanata was trying to be CruelToBeKind.]]



* TheScapegoat: [[spoiler:Haruka's role in her extended family, enforced by their blood cult. While Kanata's role as heir and designated "good one" supposedly exempted her from this, she was actually under constant threat of falling into it as well, and she acknowledges that being head of the disciplinary committee means that she'll always be blamed for things by the students whose fun she's spoiling.]]



* SecondYearProtagonist: Except Kyousuke, all of the Little Busters are Second Years and all but two of them are in the same class.[[spoiler:This is a minor plot point.]]

* Narm: In Episode 6 of the Anime, we see [[spoiler: a flashback to Komari as a child. Her brother is ill in bed, and the sad music begins to play as he starts to cough... Then some blood splats on Komari's face, complete with cartoon "splat" sound effect which makes ot unintentionally hilarious, especially as Komari doesn't react at all.]]

And thus begins a laid-back and certainly not horribly depressing DatingSim-type VisualNovel with a touch of FightingGame, wherein you (as Riki) try to befriend the various girls, while getting into fights with the other Little Busters and several other people at your school. Or at least, they'd like you to think that's what it is. But it's Key Visual Arts, so of course there's more to it than that.

* 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}}).

* 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."

* 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.]]
