* AssPull: The reveal that [[spoiler:Mikami is, actually, Kouichi's aunt Reiko. Unlike her being the dead person, this has no foreshadowing whatsoever]]. ALL the characters already knew [[spoiler:that the two of them were the same person, and that she attended that same class in the past]] and yet NONE of them bring it up, ever. One would think that would be important considering the situation they're in...It should be noted that this whole detail is handled much more gracefully in the original novel.

* FoeYay: Izumi and Mei's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MulMzcRVk0 fight]]/[[spoiler: Izumi's death]] scene certainly has implications of this, with [[DoesThisRemindYouofAnything Izumi straddling Mei]] and the latter making [[LooksLikeSheIsEnjoyingIt whimpering and squeaking noises.]]

* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler: Tomohiko alone among the kids murders two of his classmates on the off chance one might be the Extra, and was about to kill Kouichi, only to be stopped by Izumi. When it becomes evident neither of his first victims was the Extra (and further, that he has a very flawed understanding of how the Calamity actually works), Tomohiko expresses no remorse and attempts to continue his rampage. To put that in perspective, Yukito only attacked someone other than Mei by accident and was completely horrified by it, Takako specifically said she wasn't willing to kill Kouichi because she knew he wasn't the Extra, and Izumi was only willing to go that far when she concludes Kouichi was at best complacent in Mei's sadistic murder of Takako. Even taking sanity slippage into account, Tomohiko is the only character who has the demonstrated capacity to be a remorseless, cold blooded murderer.]]
* MemeticMutation: Pies. [[labelnote:Explanation (Spoilers)]] After someone photoshopped Nurse Mizuno smashing her head into a pie instead of the elevator's floor, photoshopping images and creating [=GIFs=] to include pies in some way has become very popular. "Slice of pie" has even become a [[NeverSayDie euphemism for death]] on 4Chan.[[/labelnote]]

** For some, [[spoiler: Sakuragi]]'s death goes from horrifying to BlackComedy when you see [[spoiler: her hand in the air and her foot leaning on the last stairstep, both twitching in an almost comical manner]]. That was a bit ''too'' much.

** Yu Yamada is apparently this to his own classmates in the film. He's a relatively minor character whose only on screen appearences are very loudly blaming Kouichi for Yukari's death (while ''she's still bleeding out on the floor'') and loudly taunting the Calamity [[DoNotTauntCthulhu before being run over by a car.]] His own best friend, Yuuya, bikes off and leaves him without even checking to make sure he was really dead first. The only person who seems even remotely upset is Takako, and she gets upset ''whenever'' [[NiceGirl someone dies.]]

** Then again, the whole point of the curse is that when death itself is coming for you, not even the laws of physics, probability or logic will save you.

** A lot of the deaths in the live action adaptation, especially the decapitation, are [[SpecialEffectsFailure so poorly done]](even more so than in the anime) they become laughable. [[https://youtu.be/GzuaxZEgmOg This video]] has a montage of them starting around 10:32.

** In the original novel and anime, the class of 1972 simply pretended that Misaki was still alive and coming to class after he died, leaving his seat empty but acting like he was still sitting in it. In the live-action adaptation, they instead put an Annabell doll in [[GenderFlip her]] seat, which is a bit hard to take seriously.

** Mei. She's shunned by her classmates, which she volunteered for so that someone else wouldn't get saddled with the responsibility, and when the killings do end up happening, Izumi publicly shames her and forces her to apologize for failing in her role, [[spoiler:which wasn't actually her fault]]. Her family couldn't support her and her twin sister, so she got sent off to live with a relative who treats her coldly and thinks of her as little more than a replacement for her daughter. Said twin sister [[spoiler: dies at the start of April, just as the two were connecting]]. During the climax, [[spoiler:most of her surviving classmates are trying to kill her]]. The poor girl has it rough, to say the least.

** In the live-action adaptation, when Sakakibara introduces himself to the class, everyone stares at him coldly... except for one of the boys, who has a goofy smile on his face.

* AlasPoorScrappy: As divisive as she is, a lot of [[spoiler:Izumi's]] haters found her death to be quite sad.



* BaseBreaker: Izumi's treatment of Mei has made her fairly divisive with fans - mostly regarding whether it was justified or not. How sympathetic Takako and Tomohiko were in the last episodes also falls into this category.
