** Okabe mentions "Maybe you should make an [[{{GIFT}} APA analysis]] on [[Website/FourChan /b/]]". It's changed in the dub to him suggesting that she's checking out her [[{{Reddit}} AMA threads]].

** Its probably worth noting that several disorders exist with males having two x chromosomes. Some of these are caused during or immediatly after conception and as such could be subject to the butterfly effect. This perhaps makes the plot more believable especially considering Lukako's feminine appearance.

* {{Chuunibyou}}: Rintarou is a self-proclaimed mad scientist and villain, and will often partake in strange mannerisms such as talking to himself via cell phone and laughing maniacally in order to keep up this persona. However, he does not truly believe himself to be a mad scientist, but rather he acts like this in order to entertain his childhood friend Mayuri Shiina.

* AdaptationDistillation: The anime cuts out at least half of both Faris and Ruka's arcs and simplifies the Moeka section of the story by cutting out a lot of elements that aren't directly related to the climax of the story. It also has a tendency to remove a lot of the science from the story.

* ArcWords: Subverted. Okabe loves throwing around the words "[[TitleDrop Steins Gate]]" and "El Psy Congroo", but he himself admits that those words don't have any meaning whatsoever. At least until the ending, where "Steins Gate" refers to the [[spoiler:[[GoldenEnding perfect timeline]], but both the present and future Okabe lampshade that the meaning is assigned]]. Ragnarok, Urd, and other Norse terminologies also deserve mention.
* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Although [[LampshadeHanging they didn't expect it to work]], the lab team successfully turns Ruka into a girl by telling his pregnant mother to eat lots of vegetables, under the reasoning that eating meat will infuse testosterone into the fetus. Physical sex is genetic and determined at conception, so this doesn't make any sense, but in a series that deals extensively with [[ButterflyOfDoom the fallout of time travel]], it's probably not so simple.

* BrickJoke: The movie revolves around the idea that "deja vu" is a result of another timeline interfering with the current one, and that remembering these memories is an indication that something happened from said timeline. [[spoiler:Remembering too many of these timelines will [[RetGone force the person out of said timeline and into nothingness]].]] Of course, the movie also likes to throw some gags in the movie itself, such as Kurisu thinking and reminding herself that [[StupidSexyFlanders Ruka is a guy]] and [[spoiler:Suzuha wearing Daru's hat.]]

* CerebusCallback: There's an early running gag about how Ruka is incredibly feminine despite being a guy. About two thirds of the way through the story, it's not funny anymore when [[spoiler:not only was Ruka finally given a chance to be a girl, but then she has to return. A clearly depressed Okabe repeats the lines in his head.]]

Overtly the case in the game where each of the aforementioned characters has a romantic ending. Suzuha's ending's more ambiguous but leaves the option open as well. The drama CD even adds Moeka to the mix.

* MultipleEndings: Suzuha, Faris and Ruka all have endings that end the story prematurely. Mayuri and Kurisu's endings take almost the exact same path to their conclusion and end at the same place with the difference mainly being in Okabe's grounding. Finally, if you follow the Kurisu ending but answer the final call properly, you proceed into the True Ending. The anime also has the exclusive "23 β" ending, a recut of the True Ending that ties into the game's prequel by [[spoiler:not having Okabe ultimately rescue Kurisu at the end.]]

The {{Sequel}} to ''VisualNovel/ChaosHead'', ''Steins;Gate'' is set roughly one year after the events of the previous game. Instead of the "delusion trigger" system introduced in ''Chaos;Head'', ''Steins;Gate'' uses the similar "phone trigger": whenever somebody calls Okabe, he can choose whether or not to answer. Text messages include blue hyperlinks that can be selected to reply to the text. The player's choices determine what sort of path the plot takes.
