* WhatAnIdiot: A lot of the first half of the series is people being stupid and not properly communicating anything
** Okabe has just done a D-Mail experiment and nobody remembers it happened.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Okabe to realize that the D-Mail worked and the past has changed, and inform everyone about it like he did after Moeka's D-Mail.\\
'''Instead:''' He doesn't tell anyone and continues to question everything strange, not thinking that it might have something to do with a D-Mail that was sent, nor does he ever bother to ask anyone if the D-Mail worked, even though the intended purpose of sending them is to test it.
** Okabe has been acting strange, rambling about something not being right, and not like his other chuunibyou rants. It's very similar to when he told them that Moeka had sent a D-Mail.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Someone to realize that maybe Okabe has sent a D-Mail and to ask him about it.\\
'''Instead:'' Nobody thinks to do this, and instead blame it on the heat or his usual chuuni rants.
** Okabe has been going on a little rant about how Lukako [[spoiler:is a guy]]\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Okabe to figure out that [[spoiler:Lukako's D-mail to change his gender worked, and that's the reason everyone is acting strange, especially when one considers that both Mayuri, who's a close friend of Lukako, and Lukako herself are saying that she is a girl]].\\
'''Instead:''' He gets the bright idea to [[spoiler:confirm that Lukako is a male by grabbing her genitalia]]. Needless to say, this isn't the best decision.

** Okabe uses his time-traveling ability to accomplish three things: [[spoiler:save his best friend, save his LoveInterest, and prevent the world from falling into chaos]]. [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Sound familiar?]]

* PortingDisaster: The PC port is a minor example of this. The resolution is downscaled (from HD to 576p), buggy, and prone to crashing problems. The English localization fixed the bugs and crashing problems. The 2016 [[http://5pb.jp/games/steam/steinsgate/en/ Steam Edition]] remedied all of the above issues, as it used the HD assets of the PS4 port.

* MoralEventHorizon:
** [[spoiler:Moeka killing Mayuri in several timelines]].
** [[spoiler:Kurisu's father stealing his daughter's paper and then either gets her killed or stabs Okabe. Unlike Moeka, there isn't a single point of redemption in his favor. The drama [=CDs=] portray him in a slightly better light (though mostly by making his background more sympathetic, rather than undoing any actual course of action).]]

* SophomoreSlump: Inverted to an insane degree. The visual novel is the only one in the ''Science Adventure'' series to be released overseas, and the anime is the most well-known ''and'' well-received adaption in the series.



-->'''Okabe''':"[[LampshadeHanging But he's a guy]]."

to:

-->'''Okabe''':"[[LampshadeHanging -->'''Okabe''': "[[LampshadeHanging But he's a guy]]."



* {{Woolseyism}}: The English adaptations replace references to 2chan [[MemeticMutation memes]] with ones more familiar to native English speakers.
-->'''Kurisu''': Why do you have to be such a [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Wesley]]!? *''beat''* Uhh... I mean, we're getting way off topic.
-->'''Okabe''': ...right, we should get back on track. How is your work progressing, Next-Gen Girl?
** Also notable is the dub's handling of Okabe's tendency to refer to Daru as a "super hacka," which is evidently used by most as a derogatory term to refer to someone who claims they're a tremendously skilled hacker, but in reality, are anything but. Since most of the American audience probably wouldn't understand that without someone explaining it to them, the dub opts to have Okabe refer to Daru as a "hack," which is generally used to refer to someone with no talent in their chosen profession. In either case, Okabe clearly uses it because he just thinks it sounds cooler than "hacker."

** Okabe's [[GratuitousEnglish "I am mad scientist"]] phrase is replaced with a JiveTurkey act.

*** Another CERN-related one: Sometime after the release of the anime adaptation, there was a man who got arrested in the real LHC claiming to be a time traveler. Cue John Titor-related/The Choice of Steins;Gate comments
