* FridgeBrilliance: Mami's special attack. [[spoiler:It was the same attack she used in the anime before she died. In the game it leaves her with barely any health.]]
** Kyouko's barrier is basically useless... unless you're fighting Oktavia, in which case it's one of the few reliable ways to handle her.
* FridgeLogic: Noted by Gesh86 in his LetsPlay of the game: The most likely reason for getting the [[spoiler: "Homura wakes up in the hospital and tries again"]] ending sequence is that ''Homura'' [[KilledOffForReal lost all her Soul Limit]], as the rest get special endings.
* ThatOneLevel: H.N. Ellen/Kirsten. The other four levels are a fairly straightforward progression of more and more powerful [[{{Mooks}} Familiars]] and [[BossFight Witches]] with harder to avoid attacks. Kirsten, however, has a Labyrinth full of {{Bottomless Pit}}s, other stage hazards, and LedgeBats - while ''none'' of the other Witches - not even the ''final boss'' - use stage hazards (unless you count WPN's rain of debris). This becomes even more infuriating when you remember that [[GameplayAndStorySegregation in canon, Kirsten hardly has a Labyrinth and gets killed in about 30 seconds; she mostly exists to show off]] how {{Badass}} the newly contracted Sayaka is via LookWhatICanDoNow (though FridgeBrilliance might kick in when you realize Sayaka is the best character for this stage).
* TierInducedScrappy: Mami and Sayaka, for the inverse reason: Mami for being too weak compared to the series, Sayaka for being too strong.
* WildMassGuessing: H.N. Elly/Kirsten was a gamer when [[spoiler: she was human]]. This is why she has two Witch names; one is a screen-name. Combined with this, the Labyrinth full of [=TVs=] is a dead giveaway. This is also why her stage is full of ClassicVideoGameScrewYous: MediumAwareness + GenreSavvy + Witchy angst and hate.
** Almost certainly intended by canon: [[MeaningfulName HN is Japanese slang shorthand for net handle]].
** In any scenario where Homura's Soul Limit is depleted, it was AllJustADream.
