** Also, though whether it's canon or not is unclear (as it is from another game,) in one of the Narrator's dialogues in [[VideoGame/Dungeons3 Dungeons 3]], while ranting about not being able to work with professionals for once, he mutters to himself [[FridgeHorror "Take a deep breath, remember what they taught you. You don't want any more of those electric shocks."]]

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: There's quite a few for the Narrator in particular, as he behaves rather differently depending on Stanley's actions. Sometimes (as in the Confusion and Zendom endings), he seems to genuinely be on Stanley's side, while in others (like the Phone and Explosion endings) he acts as an antagonist, and in still others (like the Freedom or Insane endings), he has no direct interactions with Stanley at all and simply lives up to his namesake as the storyteller. It's rather telling that the narrator is at his most antagonistic when Stanley is either deliberately ignoring his directions (Phone ending) or trying to hijack the story (Explosion ending), while obeying the narrator generally results in favourable treatment. Is he an [[JerkassGods Omnipotent Jerk]] who delights in manipulating Stanley? A control-freak who cannot stand dissent? An creator who is trying to show off something he is excited about creating only to (potentially) be thwarted by an uncooperative partner who seems to be causing havoc ForTheLulz? Such interpretation is largely left up to the player.

* GoodBadBugs: The black "monolith" that initially appeared in during the Essence of Divine Art's message is actually the puppy's door in the Baby Game not disappearing properly. When it was finally patched three years later since it covered some of the text, many players were surprised, thinking the "monolith" ''was'' the Divine Art.

* TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat: Judging by approximately 100% of Let's Plays of this game, the Narrator completely has the player's number in the ''Countdown'' ending.
--> '''Narrator:''' Did you just assume when you saw that timer that something in this room was capable of turning it off? I mean look at you, running from button to button, screen to screen, clicking on every little thing in this room! These numbered buttons! No! These colored ones! Or maybe this big, red button! Or this door! Everything! Anything! Something here will save me! Why would you think that, Stanley?
