* ActorAllusion: [[{{VideoGame/Judgment}} This is not the only time Greg Chun has done the English voice for the main character in a game about a Japanese detective searching for a serial killer who removes their victim's eyes...]]

Added DiffLines:

* CirclingBirdies: Happens to Yogano, one of Moma's lackeys, when Date knocks him out.


* TheConspiracy: In [[spoiler: Iris' route, she reveals that she believes herself to be the target of a secret society called Naixatloz, considered so big that it swallowed up both the Illuminati and the Freemasons. Their ultimate goal revolves around building a satellite to transmit code into space to spread the existence of artificial intelligence]]. [[spoiler: Except, not really. The strong beliefs on the topic stem from delusions caused by her brain tumor, and while Naixatloz may still exist in universe, they themselves aren't involved with the story]].

The strong beliefs on the topic stem from delusions caused induced by her brain tumor, and while Naixatloz may still exist in universe, in-universe, they themselves aren't involved with the story]].


* ThreePointLanding: Aiba starts out [=PSYNCIN' IN THE PaiN=] in the position, adding that she wanted to "enter the scene like a cybernetic assassin from the future." Date points out that she'd [[Anime/GhostInTheShell have to be naked for the reference to work]].

* OnceMoreWithClarity: [[spoiler: In the resolution route we see that Iris's (actually Manaka's) body was in fact a part of Hitomi's plan to blackmail So for the money for Iris's surgery and that he just happened to walk in at the wrong time.]]

* PressXToDie: In the last somnium on [[spoiler: the Annihilation Route]], there's a gimmick involving target doors that you have to open; each one carries a time cost of 999 seconds (this instakills you), and you're supposed to use the Time To 1 ability on it. Wasting both available Time to 1 abilities on anything else makes the level UnwinnableByDesign, but this trope comes in with the very first door you see, which not only has 999, but has a negative time penalty of x999 on it [[labelnote:*]] When you have a negative time penalty, you are FORCED to use it on your next interaction[[/labelnote]]; even if you time-to-1 this door, the penalty WILL kill you.

* OutOfFocus: [[spoiler:Depending on what route you play this can happen to specific characters. such as Iris in Mizuki and Ota routes (Saito was in Iris's body most of the time.) Mizuki in Annihilation Route who was suffering from a HeroicBSoD from Iris and Ota's deaths ect.]]

* OneDegreeOfSeparation: [[spoiler:Date spends most of the game in the body of Saito Sejima, who is Iris' half-brother by way of their father So. Iris' biological mother, Manaka, was best friends with Hitomi and Renju; the latter is Mizuki's father, Shoko's ex, Date's drinking buddy, Iris' producer, ''and'' Pewter's lover. A young Saito was the one who murdered Manaka, and the Kumakuras including Rohan disposed of the body.

Boss was one of Falco's old friends on the force and helped kick off the whole body-swapping plot. The use of this trope is partially [[JustifiedTrope justified]]; as the New Cyclops Killer, Saito is primarily targeting people important to Date as revenge for the body swap incident six years ago.]] Almost all of these connections that aren't directly related to the current string of murders are still vital to solving the case. \

Added DiffLines:

* LogoJoke: The Creator/SpikeChunsoft skull gets pierced in the eye by a long, thin object.


* SuspectExistenceFailure: [[spoiler: Due to Saito's habbit of hopping into a new body and disposing of the old one, repeatedly the investigation gets cut off by the supposed main suspect (who is technically guilty by way of Saito committing the murder for them) being found dead]].

* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler: So, after shooting Date]] in Mizukiís route. Itís complicated. [[spoiler: So is actually Saitoís father, but Date is in Saitoís body. Also, Saito was in Soís body at the time, so he was fully aware that the statement only applied to their physical bodies, not their minds.]]

The police force manage to hand wave it to say that he was badly injured during the confrontation, and that he required extensive plastic surgery. Nobody appears bothered by this.]]
