* {{Area 51}}: Building Q, out in the middle of the Nevada desert, where part of the Nonary Project experimentation is carried out ... [[spoiler:and also where the events of the game, unbeknown to most of the cast, play out.]] In a nod to the real status of the site, it is a private building of a multinational rather than a government building.

* AnimalMotifs: Snake is... well, snakes. He posesses the tenacity, the calmness, and the determination of one. "Once a snake has ensnared its prey, rarely does it release it" states the narration as Snake [[spoiler:holds onto Ace's leg, oblivious to the ''six bullets inside his chest'']].

** Defied when people going through door 6 reach [[spoiler:the doors 9]]. They could go through the door if they left June behind, but everyone agree that they're ''not'' going wihtout her.
** In the Coffin/True ending, the players could go on through [[spoiler:the doors 9]] but the digital root wouldn't fit unless they left Seven behind. Unlike the other situation, however, no one wants to do it, even those who agreed previous time. Then [[spoiler: Santa]] TookAThirdOption, leaving Seven ''and'' two othere people (namely Junpei and Clover) behind. How does he convince them to listen to him? By [[spoiler:pulling out a gun and taking June hostage threatening to blow her head of. Of course, since Santa is working with Zero, he knows that Snake is alive and the remaining three and Snake can take the other door]].

** 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]].

** Unfortunately, what's lost is a pronunciation pun, which is rather important during the climax of the True End, and makes no sense for the players unless they know Japanese. [[spoiler:Specifically, the romaji letter "q" and the number "9" are both pronounced "kyuu" in Japanese. This also gives more meaning to the "Captain's Quarters," a door with a "q" where a witness is waiting for Ace to confess to his crimes; if he chooses to do so, he will be freed.]] An attempt was made to fix the most important part by changing it into a visual pun ([[spoiler: the instructions were moved to a card in Snake's pocket, and the number 9 does awfully like a lowercase letter q]]), but a {{Flashback}} towards the end of the game mistakenly shows the wrong thing, making most players forget that detail.

to:

* BigBad: Zero [[spoiler:at first]]. As it turns out, [[spoiler:she]] is [[spoiler:a WellIntentionedExtremist]].

** Memories Of the Escape lists all the rooms to be gone through in the game, except they are listed in an odd order. It starts with the Third Class Cabin, your starting point, but then it goes through the the rooms behind doors 4, 7, 1, [[spoiler:9]], 5, 8, 6, 3 and 2, in that order. This references [[spoiler:the path to the True Ending (4→7→1→9), the path to the Safe Ending (5→8→6) and the path to the Submarine Ending (any→3→2).]]



* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler:Snake]], after [[spoiler:everyone thinking him dead]], and after [[spoiler:he has just come out of a coffin]]:
-->You're acting as though I've returned from the grave.



* MoreDakka: In the Safe Ending, [[spoiler:Ace wastes his entire load of bullets onto a [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge furious]] Snake, thinking that will bring him down]]. [[{{Determinator}} Nope.]]



** [[spoiler:The Sun door]]. Despite being the setting of an ending, there is ''nothing'' behind it: no puzzles, no keys, no reason to ever go. There is only a submarine [[spoiler:that goes nowhere]].



** When [[spoiler:Snake]] emerges out of the coffin: "Just like RipVanWinkle".



* WhyWontYouDie: Result of the above trope. [[spoiler:When Ace sets [[BigBrotherInstinct Snake]] into a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, he is not afraid because he has a fully loaded gun and Snake is at a distance. Too late he finds out [[{{Determinator}} this isn't enough.]]]]
-->"Y-You son of a bitch! You're...[[YouMonster you're a monster]]!"



** In the Captain's Quarters, you can't input the morse code until you get the paper that reveals it. Examining the telegraph will just not let you use it. You'll have to print the cilinder's marks on paper.
** Averted in 3rd Class Cabin and the shower room. You need one code for the former and two for the latter, but you can input them right off the bat without having to find the clues to figure them out. You still are obliged to find the keys for the former and the keycards for the latter, though.

* XMeetsY: The game is frequently described as ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' meets ''Franchise/{{Saw}}''. The director has acknowledged ''Saw'' as an influence, but the ''Ace Attorney'' comparison has less to do with gameplay and more to do with the fact that [[SmallReferencePools both games are visual novels]]. [[WordOfGod The game's creator]] is somewhat confused by the ''AA'' comparisons as well.
