* UnwinnableByInsanity: An incorrect accusation takes a player out of the game. This trope comes into play if every participant except one does this at which point a botched accusation must be avoided at all costs.

** There's a good deal of debate surrounding Mr. Green's actual sexuality. [[spoiler: In the third ending his last line is "I'm going home to sleep with my wife." A joke that he was straight all along, or is he just keeping up the facade now that other people are around?]] Though considering he outs himself, the latter might be unlikely.
** Wadsworth. [[spoiler: In the Scarlett and Peacock endings where he's working for the FBI is he deliberately making it harder on Boddy's victims and not protecting the accomplices out of some sense of justice? In the ending where he's Mr. Boddy is he behaving the way he does throughout the movie to torment his victims?]]

** Seeing the film again, one will notice Wadsworth's reaction to Mr. Green revealing his blackmail without letting Wadsworth out him. He's confused and checks the blackmail to see if Green's there, [[spoiler: the blackmail unfamiliar to him and possibly planted by the FBI.]]

** Wadsworth, the butler. In all three endings. [[spoiler: In the first two endings Wadsworth, actually an FBI agent, set up the entire scheme in order to implicate the killer in a conspiracy and take her down. In the third ending, Wadsworth is actually Mr. Boddy and used the guests to kill off the informants who gave him everything he used to blackmail them; with each of the guests now guilty of murder and his informants all dead, he then plans to extort even '''more''' blackmail money from them.]]

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The 2008 "modernized" version of the game garnered this reaction to some.

to:

* ReplacementScrappy: Dr. Orchid, for Mrs. White. It ''really'' doesn't help that Hasbro put it in her backstory that she's the [[RememberTheNewGuy adopted daughter of Dr. Black]], and that the character she replaced was [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]].

some, which is probably why said changes were dialed back in the newer releases of the game to the classic version.

* ValuesDissonance: Of the deliberate variety. Wadsworth saying that Mr. Boddy drove Mrs. Wadsworth to suicide by blackmailing her over being a socialist is perfectly plausible for movie set during the Red Scare. But, although it's still not a mainstream political position, it is strange to watch the movie in TheNewTens when there's a sitting member of the U.S. Senate who describes ''himself'' as a socialist. Likewise, Mr. Green's concern about being outed as a gay man comes off as if it's mere public embarrassment or scorn he'd deal with, but since the film is set in the fifties and Green has a government job it'd almost guarantee he'd be fired.

* IncrediblyLamePun: Wadsworth's pun about Hoover
-->'''Professor Plum''': But is the FBI in the habit of cleaning up after multiple murders?
-->'''Wadsworth''': Of course. Why do think itís run by a man called Hoover?
