** The Ushiromiya family, of course.
** The Sumadera family also qualifies.

** The Ushiromiya family, of course.
course. The parents in particular (with the notable exception of [[NiceGuy Hideyoshi]]) all seem to be screwed up in some way or another.
** The Sumadera family also qualifies.qualifies from what we hear of them, and the fact that they're a {{Yakuza}} family probably doesn't help.

While the arguments about the inheritance ensue, [[ClosedCircle a typhoon traps all eighteen people on the island]]. The family then finds a mysterious letter from a person claiming to be Kinzo's alchemy councilor, the [[WitchSpecies Golden Witch]], [[TheDivineComedy Beatrice]]. Beatrice claims that she has been summoned by Kinzo to claim the inheritance, as the family has been deemed unworthy of it. [[GameBetweenHeirs Unless someone solves the riddle of the epitaph on her portrait]] [[RaceAgainstTheClock before midnight on October 6th]] and becomes the family successor, Beatrice will claim everything that the family owns, including the ten tons of gold that Kinzo claims will be given to the successor. This is only the beginning of the strange and shocking events that will occur on the island during these two days. Panic, reasoning, romance, [[HamToHamCombat heated confrontations]] and a lot MindScrew ensues.

* GratuitousItalian: The opening song. Averted in the case of [[MeaningfulName Virgilia]] and [[MemeticMutation BEATORRICHEE'S]] [[DivineComedy names,]] which are often mistaken for horrible GratuitousEnglish.

** Beatrice and Virgilia both derive their names from Dante's ''DivineComedy''. The "Stakes of Purgatory" have the names of demons corresponding to the SevenDeadlySins. The "Chiester" bunny girls are named after Winchester shotguns. Finally, Lambdadelta's name is Greek for "34", which may hold some significance for those who saw ''VisualNovel/{{Higurashi|WhenTheyCry}}''.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** Beatrice. See EasilyForgiven below.
** Kyrie, several times throughout the series, but most noticeably when she explains the loser flags to Virgilia in [=EP4=].
** In [=EP5=], [[spoiler:Erika. She's fully aware that as a detective, people die wherever she goes.]]
** [[spoiler:Bernkastel]] has her moments too, in particular when it comes to exploiting [[spoiler:Battler and Ange]].

* TalkingToThemself[=/=]ActingForTwo: It takes more than half the series for the readers to realize that these tropes are in effect whenever [[spoiler: Shannon talks to Kanon]], but in Episode 7 this fact [[FridgeBrilliance becomes obvious]]. Also, no matter how you look at it [[spoiler: Beatrice is [[ActingForTwo Acting For Many]] in both the Meta-World and the piece-world.]]
