* CreepyCoolCrosses: At one point, a large cross slowly descends into the room without warning and simply sits there. [[spoiler:The protagonist ends up crucified on it.

* GlamourFailure: [[spoiler: When Lucy's ghost comes up behind the protagonist during his playthrough of Mech VS Fruits, if she is going to kill the player, she very briefly switches to her wraith form instead of the more human (but still ghostly) form she generally is seen in.]]


* DoWellButNotPerfect: When Lucy challenges you to buttons, you want to beat her, which is easy, but not obtain the highest score possible.
