** The entire novel (all eight episodes) clocks at around 6 MB as a text file. Compare WarAndPeace, which is around 3 MB. Even more impressive knowing that Ryūkishi07 wrote in less than 4 years. And that's not even counting ''Land of the Golden Witch'', the original Episode 3 that was scrapped.

* PhilosophicalChoiceEndings: Episode 8 shows the player a magic trick involving making candy appear, and asks if it was real magic or a trick. This choice leads to the appropriately-named Magic and Trick endings.

*** Murder mysteries in general are absolutely savaged. Most of the people involved in the investigation of murders are entirely there for their own selfish motives of an ego boost rather than attempting to help the victim or catch the perpetrator, and the ones that ''are'' there to help have to fight with the egotistical people in order to find the truth as they are unwilling to accept any theory that isn't their own. In addition, the way that murder mysteries are treated as obstacles to overcome and figure out rather than tragic acts of violence that destroy lives is commented on as being highly dehumanizing. [[spoiler: The deal with the Forgeries and the Rokkenjimma incident in general is meant to be a commentary on the endless search for a definitive answer and how horrible it is to drudge up the names of the dead in search of a good story. Tooya/Featherine's press conference explicitly spells this out for the audience and the reader.]]

* GhostReunionEnding: [[spoiler:Episode 8's Hidden Tea Party ends with Ange inviting Ikuko and Tohya to the reopening of the Fukuin House, which now contains an exact replica of the hall of the Ushiromiya mansion. There, Tohya/Battler is greeted by the spirits of the Ushiromiya family and the Meta world characters. Tohya then finally comes to terms with his past while Battler joins his family in the afterlife.]]

* PowersThatBe: The Witches' Senate may be something of the sort. We are never really explained what it is, what kind of power it has or how its members are designated. We just know that Bern, Lambda and [[spoiler:Featherine]] are part of it and that it's a ''very'' bad idea to go against it.

* MultiGenderedSplitPersonalities: [[spoiler:Kanon and Shannon]] (although [[spoiler:Yasu's]] original gender is left ambiguous, and so which one's the OGSP is left to speculation). There were hints of this throughout the entire novel, but it's pretty much spelled out by the seventh Episode. This is the largest clue to solving the entire story; figuring this out blows most of the closed rooms open.
