* ButThouMust: Averted and then played straight. [[spoiler:Even if Anne threatens to distill Tiphany when she's infiltrating the tower, if you hesitate for a few seconds after their final conversation, Fig will show up on the other side of the gate and force Tiphany to open it, thus ensuring Anne doesn't have to kill one of her oldest friends. But shortly thereafter, no matter what dialogue options you choose, Anne ''has'' to distill Tink, another old friend, to advance the endgame.]]


* AntiFrustrationFeature: [[spoiler:Once they team up, Fig helps Anne clear jumps she can no longer make after losing her wings.  If you miss one or accidentally drop back to where you were, he'll come back to the nearest staging point so you can redo them.]]



* BadBadActing: [[spoiler:Anne and Fig when they con Chief Inspector Magnum into believing Anne had been undercover instead of switching sides.  Bonus points for Fig's SesquipedalianLoquaciousness almost blowing the whole thing.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: [[spoiler:No matter what you choose for dialogue options or whether or not you distill & revive Tiphany, she breaks off her friendship with Anne when she learns Anne's with the Rebels.]]


* SoundtrackDissonance: [[spoiler:Anne learns that she's a Forgotling and has the Arca stripped from her hand (which will quickly lead to her crystallization a.k.a. death). The ''very next scene'' has her stumbling around barely able to walk, accompanied by light-hearted music which wouldn't be out of place in a ''Looney Tunes'' cartoon.

* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:Neither ending is at all pleasant. Either Anne essentially kills herself and Bonku, the closest thing she had to a family, after being forced to accept that she never had a place in the world and that fate itself abandoned her, or she saves herself and Bonku, only to be forced to relive the events of the game over and over again until she finally chooses to let herself die and end the cycle.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheReveal: Where to begin... [[spoiler:Anne learns that she's a Forgotling too, as is Bonku. Both will crystallize if their Arca bracelets are removed. She learns that the Plant isn't a prison but a place where convicted Forgotlings are distilled into anima on an industrial scale. She learns that Fig used to work at the Plant and was kicked out for questioning the practice. She learns that the Ether Bridge will destroy this realm if activated.]]


* TheCakeIsALie: Hardworking Forgotlings loyal to Master Bonku are given tickets to the Ether Bridge, so they can return and be reunited with their owners. [[spoiler:Bonku has no intention of bribing anyone with him to the Ether except Anne. He doesn't even see Forgotlings as living beings. They're just things to him. To top it off, when he uses the Ether Bridge, the entire Forgotlings realm will be wiped out.]]

You play as Anne, one of only two human beings in this strange realm, who carries the title of "the Enforcer" - the right hand of the world's harsh ruler, Master Bonku.
