* FridgeBrilliance: It seems as if Kokone's dreams give her information she shouldn't have about things she doesn't know in the real world. However, after it's revealed that [[spoiler:Heartland was based on stories of her mother]], it suddenly becomes likely that she really ''had'' been given that information about the real world, and just never realized it.
** Ancien's friendship with Peach, despite her not being related to him in Heartland like Kokone is in real life, makes a lot more sense when you discover [[spoiler:Ancien was her young adult mother, not a little girl. Kokone just imagined herself in the role when ''she'' was a little girl]].
** The revelation that the stories of Heartland were about [[spoiler:Kokone's parents]] explains why Morio didn't have a role in them (and there wasn't as easy of a role for him [[spoiler:to project himself onto like Kokone did Ancien]]).
* FridgeLogic: Based on the scenes we get from the real world and where the real world picks back up, Kokone had to have fallen asleep in one of two places. Either while [[spoiler:talking to the Chairman]], and then dragged up to a high floor in the Shijima Motors building for some reason, or she was still partially awake while going to that spot, and fell asleep after [[spoiler:diving for the tablet]]. Either way, her waking up while [[spoiler:falling and most of the Heartland climax having no parallel in real life]] makes it the strangest place she fell asleep all movie.


* PoliceAreUseless: A justified example. Early in the story, you have a senior member of a respected company claiming corporate espionage against a down on his luck guy who doesn't have much of a defense, and his young daughter who seems to be obstructing justice. As the plot unfolds and the events become more ambiguous, the police develop more doubt and wonder why the executive is treating them like his personal henchmen. In the end, the police still don't get to do much, but it's simply because the hero already had all of the pieces they needed.

* GogglesDoNothing: In her pirate outfit, Ancien has a pair of goggles. When she climbs to the outside of a towering Enginehead, she actually ''discards'' them (and her pirate hat), despite it seeming like the high altitude would make the goggles useful.

* KeepTheReward: Kokone's father Momotaro likes to do extra work on his jobs, like transforming an old vehicle into a self-driving one during a job to fix a tire, but refuses to be paid extra for it (although he will take food instead of money). This annoys Kokone and is one of the reasons they seem to be in some level of PerpetualPoverty (leading her to win money playing Mahjong against her father's friends).

* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Kokone's persona in Heartland is the land's princess (and where the movie gets its name). Ends up plot relevant as well, in two different ways. Since the characters in Heartland have parallels in real life, it turns out the real Ancien actually does [[spoiler:have an important family]]. Also, Ancien being the daughter of the king, is a hint that [[spoiler:she's not Kokone after all, but her mother]].

Added DiffLines:

* CompromisingCall: Kokone's father's attempts to warn her about Watanabe backfire when they cause her phone to make a noise while she's trying to hide from him in her house.


Added DiffLines:

* UselessWithoutCellPhones: Kokone's father has been emotionally distant for years, and Kokone comments that he even says good morning to her only in a text message.

* SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack: Kokone wears her uniform throughout most of the movie. Justified in that she is tired and falls asleep immediately after school, and once she wakes up is forced to hide and spends essentially the rest of the story on the run.

Added DiffLines:

* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: Consciously averted. Exactly the goal of the antagonist and what Kokone's father has done is not known right away, but Kokone refuses to believe that her family has done anything wrong. Later on, she steals the villain's briefcase, but only because her own stuffed animal was attached to it and she had no choice. When the protagonists realize they're low on money, it occurs to them that there is probably money in the briefcase, but decide using it would be stealing, and Kokone hands over the briefcase at the next opportunity.
