* AscendedFanon: It's minor, but the official [=iTunes=] soundtrack refers to the girl that turns into Uboa as "Ponico", a romanization of her long-standing FanNickname. (Uboa remains unnamed, however.)

* ReclusiveArtist: Little is known about Kikiyama. She has made no other games aside from ''Yume Nikki'', she's never done any interviews or publicity, and everything about her real-world identity is a complete mystery. She does have an email address, which Japanese-speaking fans have been able to wriggle a laconic response out of once in a blue moon (which is the only reason fans even know she's a woman, as she refers to herself using [[UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns female pronouns]] within them), but otherwise, she's said not a peep since 2008. This has continued even ''after'' official merchandise and adaptations began to be produced in 2013.

Added DiffLines:

* UrbanLegendOfZelda: Several earlier versions of the game were said to have been released or published in Japanese gaming magazines with demo discs long before the full game was released. So far only versions .04, .06, and .09 have been found and dumped to the internet for anyone to download.

* ReclusiveArtist: This is honestly a subversion if anything. Kikiyama was initially assumed to be one since she put relatively little information out there other than the game, but she isn't actually reclusive at all. It's just that few people bother to contact her (she's generally believed to be a woman, since she refers to herself with female pronouns in the one verified e-mail) and that she is typically busy from time to time. However, she did state that she does prefer to be discreet but is otherwise fairly open.

* AuthorExistenceFailure: Downplayed. Many fans (especially Western fans) tend to believe that Kikiyama doesn't socialize, dead, or has left the internet, but Kikiyama is not only alive but still around on the internet. It's just that very few fans bother to contact her, and due to the game's PerpetualBeta nature many fans just assume that she's a ReclusiveArtist.
