** The Plot-wise, the Safe ending can seem Ending. [[spoiler:At the cost of a few lives, the BiggerBad is finally brought down and the road to be this, if you don't know that [[spoiler:you need Door 9 is clear... and then for some reason, Akane [[RetGone literally vanishes into thin air]] because of a TimeParadox, Santa disappears, and [[CrypticConversation Zero tells Junpei some things he can't understand yet]] before putting him to get that ending first to reach sleep]], leaving everybody's fate unknown. However, gameplay-wise it's a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]] because it actually unlocks the True Ending.]]

** At the beginning of the game the Number Nine Man enters a numbered door by himself and explodes because of small bombs placed in his stomach, foreshadowing the rules for the nonary game. You have to walk past a bloody puddle of his remains if you chose to go through that door. [[spoiler: Later on another man dies in a similar way when being thrown into the number 3 door by himself.]]
** This game infamously has a number of bloody deaths for bad endings. [[spoiler: Especially during the axe ending where Clover becomes literally AxeCrazy and brutally murders several people.]]

** [[spoiler:The Submarine ending ends with [[EverybodysDeadDave everybody dead.]] Of course, [[spoiler:Ace was acting and could have been able to brute-force the q Door with all the bracelets to escape unpunished]]. It's one of the three endings to have credits, making it the decoy bad ending. If you don't know [[GuideDangIt that the Safe ending]] is the ''bad'' end, the Submarine ending seems the worst of all outcomes.]]

* CompanionCube: In Room 8, have Junpei examine the mannequin more than several times for him to eventually dub it "Science Boy". His attachment to Science Boy can lead to a SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}} or two, [[spoiler:especially after the fire breaks out. During the fire, try examining Science Boy and the door Clover went through.]]
* CompressedAdaptation: When the game was ported to iOS, a lot of the puzzles were cut. Unfortunately, most of the game's characterization (and humour) unfolds in the various conversations had while characters solve the puzzle. [[AdaptationExpansion It does, however, have a new ending]]... which is basically useless as it doesn't reveal anything new about the plot and it's a shorter, less messy version of the Axe ending.

** [[spoiler: The Axe ending has Clover taking a dive into the deep end should she never get the proper words of encouragement from Junpei, killing Santa and Seven over her brother's apparent death. Her justification for killing Akane was that she was in her way, and then she kills Junpei ForTheLulz. At the same time, Ace would have killed or kidnapped Lotus, and when Clover finds them... And she wouldn't have got the q puzzle.]]

** In the 'Safe' ending, Junpei learns from Santa Ace's real identity, and that Ace told him this himself. [[spoiler:Given Ace already killed two people to hide that fact, why would he tell Santa? Easy; he didn't. Santa is one of the masterminds behind the game and knows exactly who Ace is.]]

** In a bit of genius, during the safe ending [[spoiler:you end up with the password 14383421, according to an interview with the director, he chose that number because if you multiply it by nine you get 129450789...the actual numerical value of everyone's bracelets.]]
** The detonators [[spoiler:not being real, except for the one in the ninth man, and possibly the one in Ace,]] is hinted at in a couple of places, specifically [[spoiler:when Junpei observes that one of the searches for the DEAD felt like a ''lot'' longer than 81 seconds.]]

** The map Junpei finds of E deck has a large part of its center burned away. [[spoiler:Rather appropriate, considering there's a gigantic incinerator somewhere in the ship, even if it isn't on that same deck.]]
** Santa at one point says that you shouldn't trust anyone in the Nonary Game, because the person you trust most will turn on you. [[spoiler:The person Junpei trusts most is Akane. She turns out to be behind the whole thing.]] Also, [[spoiler: the one most persistent on everyone trusting everyone is Ace, the guy that did the original Nonary Game.]]
** The flashback at the beginning of the game shows Junpei entering his apartment when he notices the window open. The narration says "Huh, did I leave that open?", except without quotation marks. [[spoiler:Seeing how the second screen is June's POV...]]
** When toying with the thermometer behind door number 3, Santa explains to Junpei that the reason thermometers stop at 107 degrees Fahrenheit (41 degrees Celsius) is because temperatures higher than that will cause permanent damage to the human body (comparing it to hard-boiling an egg) and that there is no point. He also explains that no disease would raise a fever to that high anyways. One would have to be forced into a super-heated sauna or incinerator to reach temperatures like that. [[spoiler:June's on-and-off fever comes from being burned to death via TemporalParadox.]]
** There's various foreshadowing that Ace [[spoiler:can't recognize faces due to Prosopagnosia]]. Junpei himself notices and thinks to himself that Ace is acting strange.
** The demo for the game is different in that it has June in the same 3rd Class Cabin as Junpei at the beginning. [[spoiler: When Junpei recognizes her a specific song starts playing, called "Who Is Zero".]]
** Junpei tries to forcibly remove his bracelet right at the beginning of the game, only to discover that it's not possible. Later on, he finds out that there's a game rule that attempting to remove the bracelet by force will trigger a detonator that are inside participants prematurely. Seems like Junpei was lucky enough to give up trying to remove his bracelet before he went too far, else he would have ended up exploding before he had even left the very first room of the game. [[spoiler: But in reality, there was actually no bomb of any kind to detonate inside anybody (besides the 9th Man) to begin with]].
** When Santa [[spoiler: holds June at gunpoint]], look at [[spoiler: June's bracelet]]. It's 9.
** One bit of foreshadowing was added in ''The Nonary Games'' re-edition when June compares the shape of the furnace to kamaboko(fish cake). [[spoiler: Who else uses food-based comparisons? The narrator.]]
