- Eye Scream: Happened to him during a snow avalanche, which also injured his leg.

- Widow Woman: Even more so: her introductory case involved her husband's murder. Ouch.

- Write Who You Know: Stated In-Universe to be the inspiration for a Kid Detective story titled ''The Koumei from Class 2-A", written by another childhood friend of Yamato's and Morofushi's. It's Morofushi's favourite book. (It's also implied that the main character's rival was inspired by Yamato.)
