Teasing Creator: Mori Toshimichi has reached this status, if not outright Trolling Creator, when the subject is about the playability of Kokonoe. This mini-dialogue sums it up:
Mori: No, but here's an extra story where she's the star. Enjoy.
: No, but here's some new omake segments where she complains about it. Enjoy.
: No, but here's a bunch of never-heard-before characters for you as new characters and a teaser after the endings. Enjoy.
: No, but here's Hazama 2.0 and another story-related NPC made playable. Enjoy.
Mori: Okay, fine, geez! Here's your playable Kokonoe! Happy now!?
Mori: She's DLC.
Mori: No. Instead you get... CLASSIC DLC COSTUME FOR MAI WAIFU NOEL. Just to rub you in the face, you can play as her in Story Mode, but gotta pay for the rest!
- To wit, fans have been asking for Kokonoe so much (and so far, to no avail prior to CP's console port), that Valkenhayn's "Help Me, Professor Kokonoe!" segment in Extend exists only to poke fun at the entire ordeal. Mori probably has graduated to Trolling Creator after that announcement around the time of the localized version. The reveal that Kokonoe would indeed become playable rescinded things a bit, but only for the PS3 fans, as 360 fans will not only miss out on Kokonoe, but Chronophantasma entirely. Following that, Kokonoe turned out to be broken as hell and Mori refuses to rebalance her for CP, so—depending on how much you care about tiers vs. character playability—the PS3 fans still may have ended up being trolled despite their "wish" coming true.
- To a lesser extent, this has been done with The Imperator/Saya as well, with Mori saying something along the lines of: "We couldn't put Saya in the arcade version but for the home console? Yes, she will be there." Cue Chronophantasma's console release, where it turns out that he was only half right. She assists the final boss, Take-Mikazuchi in battle, but isn't playable herself.
