* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Johnny's mom is subject to this with her limited appearance. What we know is [[spoiler:after Joey died, she underwent SanitySlippage and deliberately gave Johnny the Beta Blockers to block the trauma of his death]]. From there two interpretations arise. The first is [[spoiler:that she is abusive, forcibly editing her surviving son's memory, and tricking herself into believing he was Joey, her preferred son, in a twisted case of ParentalFavoritism]]. The other is [[spoiler:that she gave Johnny the blockers to save him from the trauma of losing a twin, and her calling him Joey down the line is just her own fragile mental state confusing the two]].

* {{Tsundere}}: Eva. She, on the surface, seems kinda cold and methodical, but is shown to be much more kindhearted than what is [[SugarAndIcePersonality readily apparent]].

** Part of the code in the background when you prepare a memento says, "Step twice into the river of life." If you're familiar with philosophy, this is based on a quote from Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher who said, "No man ever steps in the same river twice."

Added DiffLines:

* EpilepticTrees: A handful of [[FreezeFrameBonus Freeze Frame Bonuses]] in the first game gave rise to a number of theories as to the "real" nature of the game, with one of the most pervasive being that the entire story is actually one of the player characters dying and going back through their memories, the same way they did for their patients. The evidence for these theories was pretty circumstantial... until the second minisode was released, which has given some legs to a few fan theories and kicked the speculation into overdrive.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: "Everything's Alright" is very similar to [[FinalFantasyVIII "Eyes on Me"]], especially the chorus.

** Another one which makes you realize how truly screwed Johnny is: [[spoiler: The reason Johnny's mother made him take the beta blockers which made him forget about his dead twin brother was because his mother was DrivenToMadness by Joey's death and wanted Johnny to become his ReplacementGoldfish, which puts her straight into the AbusiveParents field]].



* {{Glurge}}: Even if the story aims to be an uplifting tale, there are still the issues of the real pain and suffering undergone by the real people, and the fact that the happy ending was only experienced by only three people.

* HarsherInHindsight: When you discover that Johnny's mother [[spoiler: wasn't just calling him "Joey" as a cute nickname]], it frames the entire first half of the game in a different light. [[spoiler: Johnny's seemingly-pathological desire to stand out and be different suddenly makes a lot more sense when you realise his own mother favoured Joey so much, she forced Johnny to become a copy of him - right down to Joey's love of Animorphs and Pickled Olives - after Joey's death.]]
