* AssPull: The rapid-fire revelations toward the end can come across as this. [[spoiler: The fact that Layton has a brother, the fact that he was adopted, the fact that "Hershel" is not his original name, and the fact that Bronev is his father are all twists with absolutely no foreshadowing or build-up.]]
** [[spoiler: The revelation that the Azran died out because of a ''robotic rebellion'' seems like just a setup to reveal Aurora as a golem so they can kill her off. That way, they don't have to explain away her character in the first triology.]]
** The upgrade of the Azran from [[spoiler: scattered mesoamerican based culture with a penchant for crazy-ass architecture and before-their-time knowledge to world traveling amazing grand race of super geniuses who could cure EVERY DISEASE EVER often feels like the writers just forgot how to explain plots.]]

* HilariousInHindsight: One of the main characters is named Professor Sycamore. Guess who else is named this in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY''? It gets funnier when you consider that the Pokémon Sycamore's theme has a distinct Layton-like vibe to it.

This becomes more hilarious if you played the previous game and related it to ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2''.

Yet there's absolutely no sign of damage post-game, though Froenborg was specifically stated to have been evacuated prior to awakening of the golems.]]

** Whatever happened to [[spoiler: Descole's wife and daughter, anyhow?]]



* InferredHolocaust / NoEndorHolocaust: [[spoiler: The golems, once activated, start blowing things up. It's a situation that is noted might be the end of the world if something isn't done. Yet there's absolutely no sign of damage post-game... also mildly horrifying, because if there were golems at other Azran sites, such as Golden Garden, Ambrosia, and Akbadain, then the locales nearby -- Misthallery and Monte D'Or, for example -- could have been affected as well. Yikes!]]
** [[spoiler: Froenborg was specifically stated to have been evacuated prior to awakening of the golems. The post-game is actually set before the final stretch of the story and going by Aurora's words, all the golems were sealed in the Azran sanctuary, so none would've been at other sites.]]

* TheUntwist: Did you play through Miracle Mask? And watch the post-credits scene? [[spoiler: Then you should in no way be surprised that Sycamore is Descole, given the presence of Raymond the butler...]]
** [[spoiler: No need to go that far. Raymond is shown with Descole in the very first cutscene of The Last Specter.]]

* ThatOneSidequest: The fashion design minigame, which takes several cues from another series That One Sidequest, the tea brewing minigame from ''Diabolical Box'', and as a result is every bit more reliant on [[TrialAndErrorGameplay trial and error]] than actually thinking it through to a solution.

** It's entirely possible Also, due to only be able to complete the order in which you get items, you'll almost inevitably end up finishing the first request ''last.''''last''. It seems this minigame was specifically designed to be as irritating as humanly possible.
