Another Fan Sequel to the Corpse Party series, Corpse Party: Cross Fear by AMISOGUMI serves as both a Sequel to Corpse Party Zero and a Prequel to their previous work, Corpse Party if....Five years after the A Ending of Corpse Party Zero, Kaori Hasegawa still grapples with the tragic loss of her sister. Her claims that her sister was murdered by evil spirits have only landed her in a psychatric hospital, where her only friend is a young boy who was abused by his parents. To make matters worse, her doctor is a Manipulative Bastard who puts on a good face for the world while abusing and terrifying his patients behind closed doors. Pushed to the breaking point, Kaori soon finds herself transported back to the cursed school once more...A translation of the game was released by Memories of Fear in October 2013.
Satoshi's timely intervention helps avoid one Bad End.
When Seita gets unavoidably cornered by Dr. Amagasaki, he can be saved by Sayako blowing his head off.
Sayako does this again in two of the endings. However, in Ending B, this still leads to tragedy.
Bittersweet Ending: Regardless of what ending you get, Sayako's still trapped in the cursed school and will eventually be corrupted by its influence. Depending on the ending you get, Kaori either makes it through with Seita, but doesn't have any closure about losing Sayako, loses Seita as well, or simply laments her inability to end the cycle herself.
The Can Kicked Him: Not only is this a series tradition, but this version of the school includes a set of bathrooms on each floor, just to rachet up the player's paranoia. The most of comes of it is a Jump Scare.
Cassandra Truth: Nobody believes Kaori's story about what happened to her little sister.
Catapult Nightmare: When Kaori dreams about finding Shiho in the cursed schoolhouse, only to find she's missing her face.
Chained by Fashion: Due to how she's lashed out at the hospital staff, Kaori has been forced to wear manacles connected by a chain.
Character Portraits: Though most lines are simply accompanied by the speaker's name, portraits sometimes appear during certain exchanges. The player gets their first chance to see this when given a chance to view everybody's bios before the main game begins.
Contemplate Our Navels: During Ending A, Satoshi gets a monologue where they ruminate on the nature of protection.
Continuity Nod: The game is filled with nods to what happens in the related routes of Corpse Party PC 98 and Zero.
Crying Wolf: Dr. Amagasaki intends to exploit this. Kaori already has a bad reputation for berating the staff; therefore, he claims anything she accuses him of will just be dismissed as Malicious Slander.
Don't Look Back: No matter what, don't look back while you're in the corridor of light. As in If, this factors into a bad ending.
Downer Ending: Ending B is the most depressing of the lot. Sayako's still trapped, Seita dies in the corridor of light, and Kaori's implied to meet the same fate Satoshi did, getting killed by another's grudge.
Driven to Madness: Dr. Amagasaki goes utterly insane and believes he can escape by killing the others.
Driven to Suicide: This turns out to be Kaori's original plan when Amagasaki cornered her. She was going to jump out the window, and was just telling the story to stall him.
Establishing Character Moment: Dr. Amagasaki's true colors come out when, in the middle of talking down to Kaori, he looks down the front of her robe. Things go downhill from there.
During the climax, Kaori manufactures a bow in the Art Room before taking on the postliminary demon.
Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Played With. Like all others who have died there, Satoshi is affected by the school's corruptive influence that drives them to envy the living. However, they state that they "could never truly hate anyone," and have chosen to avoid a full Face-Heel Turn by refusing to get involved with any new victims drawn into the school.
Ending A: Sayako hangs onto Shiho's ribbon. Later on, during the final escape, the anatomical model catches up with Kaori and Seita. Before it can do anything, though, Sayako reappears and drives it off. She escorts them to the exit and bids them farewell, warning them not to look back. To help ensure his safety, she ties Shiho's ribbon around Seita's eyes, and Kaori leads him through by the hand. The two make it back, but Kaori still laments her inability to end the Vicious Cycle.
Ending B: Sayako gives Kaori her sister's ribbon. The anatomical model nearly catches them, but Sayako intervenes, gets them to the exit and warns them not to look back. Unfortunately, hearing her voice behind them still causes Seita to turn around... Once again, Kaori's the Sole Survivor. But a letter implies she won't stay that way for long.
Ending C: Kaori and Seita manage to evade the anatomical model and successfully escape Heavenly Host. However, the two of them are left without any closure about Sayako's fate.
Never Split the Party: Kaori runs afoul of this early on, after Dr. Amagasaki's cruel dismissal of her 'wild claims' makes her run off in frustration. Though she quickly realizes her mistake, the school won't let her double back so easily...
Neutral No Longer: Satoshi starts out refusing to get involved and try helping anyone trapped in the school. They change their mind after saving Kaori from the grinder.
Sole Survivor: Poor Kaori ends up being the only one to escape the school again in Ending B.
Start of Darkness: The climax reveals this to be poor Sayako's. Made more explicit in Ending A, which shows the moment she starts giving in to the corruption.
The Stinger: One appears after Ending A, showing Yoshiki starting his new job as a teacher at Kisaragi.
Survivor Guilt: Kaori suffers from this due to her percieved failure to protect her little sister.
Taking You with Me: When it's clear that Dr. Amagasaki is set on assaulting her, Kaori decides "screw it" and tells him the scary story that will transport them both to the cursed school. Subverted later; while it appeared at the time that was her plan, she actually intended to jump out the window and was just distracting him with the story.
Villain with Good Publicity: Dr. Mitsuhito Amagasaki: Respected psychiatrist admired by his coworkers for his strong work ethic. Pity they don't know part of the reason he enjoys his job so much is how he can torment his patients freely...
