* RelatedByTheAdaptation: Downplayed. Ibara and Rin are from the same family, and in the dub, they are referenced as brothers, but the manga itself heavily implies that they are just cousins.

Added DiffLines:

* TournamentArc: The Grand Meeting that Sayaka makes happen. It involves eight characters in the competition betting all their votes in a tournament of a game mixing Rock-Paper-Scissors and Poker. The winner will take all the votes the eight of them have combined. Unusually for this, major characters like Kirari, Ririka and Terano are not part of the tournament, while characters that haven't been seen in a while like Miyo, Erimi and some members of the student council replace them.

Added DiffLines:

* TalkingToThemself: During the Auction Game, this is how Yumeko treated Ryota and Mary talking to Midari, utterly refusing to acknowledge her existence after the Finger Guillotine game.

Added DiffLines:

* FireBreathingDiner: During Yumiko and Yumemi's contest against Wataru, they have to guess which macaron is the “Death Macaron,” which has habanero in it. Runa is the unlucky victim to show how spicy it is. The match end in a tie with Yumemi being outed by faking a reaction by breaking her own finger and Yemeko wins by observing the number of times Wataru chewed...and then making a guess on the last two.


* TarotMotif: The season 1 anime exclusive game between Yumeko and Kirari involves pulling three cards of the major arcana. If the card is upright, the number represented is positive while reverse is negative. The Fool is the Joker and Yumeko will win or lose depending on its position. Yumeko draws the Present card first, Kirari drawing the Past second and Ryota drawing the Future card last. Yumeko draws the Upright Magician in the Present. Kirari draws the Reverse World in the Past. Ryota draws Upright Judgment in the Future.

* AmbiguouslyRelated: There's some indication that [[spoiler:Yumeko is related to the Momobami clan since she shares the "devour" meaning in their name]]. There's also the fact [[spoiler:Ririka and Kirari look exactly like Yumeko except with gray hair]].

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: Jabami is one of the most skilled gamblers in school, as well as being incredibly rich. But while that would get her prestige and popularity at other schools, the majority of the other students think she's a lunatic and want nothing to do with her.
** Similarly, the main cast and antagonists' obsession with gambling makes anyone remotely normal terrified of them because of how far they'll go.

Added DiffLines:

* HomoeroticSubtext: Between Rin and Ibara, who entirely dedicate their lives to each other. The end of the war game has a particularly poignant scene where Ibara uses his hand to hide their faces while they're talking and Rin is crying, but [[https://s8.mkklcdnv8.com/mangakakalot/k1/kakegurui/chapter_625_lie_unraveling_girl_part_2/12.jpg the scene is framed as if they were kissing]]. The scene is followed by Ibara cleaning Rin's tears, both hugging and then walking off together while remembering good times.


* AdaptationExpansion: In the live-action adaptation, Kitawami & Tsubomi appeared earlier than their original appearance.

** Season 2 final game has the main cast interacting with [[spoiler: Ikishima & Nishinotouin, who managed to earn back some coins by winning games against their club members]].


Added DiffLines:

* TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler: The Season 2 anime original "Vote Auction" game has the cast having a gamble with Ikishima, Nishinatouin and part of the Hundred Devouring Families]].


* {{Leitmotif:}} Yumeko has one in the anime, a pleasant, dreamy refrain that fits her personality. Receives many a DarkReprise in the background music, generally at the exact moment when the other gambler is at their most confident.
