Added DiffLines:

* LampshadeHanging: By the ninth time Judy and Nick have to help former suspects recover their personal property from a crime scene, even Chief Bogo is commenting on it.

Added DiffLines:

* LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading: There's a loading screen at the beginning, between the cases and the map, and before most plot points, as well as loading screens for the game maps that frequently take longer than the actual gameplay, especially on replays.


* ArcVillain: One of the early case culprits, [[spoiler: a wolverine named Chuckles]] is the main villain for the first arc,
first conspiring to [[spoiler: flood Zootopia with Sequoia Towers as a front]] and then, much later, [[spoiler: escaping from jail]]. After the fifteenth case, it's revealed that [[spoiler: Dribs]] was at every crime scene.

* TheArtifact: The forensic analyst sloth becomes irrelevant once Judy and Nick start giving their clues directly to Clawhauser instead of the lab.



* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the first two cases, some of the "examine" actions came with a variable-reward minigame instead of the always-4-energy scanner, but it never shows up later. They are also the only two cases with fewer than nine maps, and case 1 is the only case that gives you bucks as a reward, the only case where there's neither a star cost nor a wait for the following case, and the only case where the additional investigation is optional.



* FakeLongevity: The game is designed so that by the end of each case, the amount of times needed to play a map to get a star (necessary in most cases to progress one plot point) increases to four or five, even if you do as well as possible on the main score and hints and have a time bonus in the 40000s. Meanwhile, unless you [[BribingYourWayToVictory pay real money]], you will have to wait patiently for a set amount of time for the remaining plot points. The last part is {{justified}} by a sloth being in charge of forensic analysis.

Added DiffLines:

* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: Early on, there's a SpearCarrier helping with analysis, but after the first set of cases, that job belongs solely to Clawhauser, with Nick and Judy doing everything else.


Added DiffLines:

* RedHerring:
** Every case has at least a few mammals who could have motive and share several traits with the culprit. This was lampshades in one case, when Judy mentioned that all the witnesses seemed to like the same things (which included things as disparate as guitar-playing and coin-collecting for this particular case).
** ZigZagged with [[spoiler: Dribs]] who has been a RedHerring, confessed to a crime and been a RedHerring ''anyway'', and [[spoiler: confessed to being behind everything, with evidence he actually was at every crime scene, but no proof beyond that]] in the three cases he appeared in.
* [[spoiler: Wilford]] was guilty in his first appearance, but a RedHerring in the second. He had simply paid his bail and been freed.

* CannotTellAJoke: Bogo explicitly states "that was a joke" after telling a pun at the beginning of Case 8, which prompts Nick to make fun of him and Judy to tell him it's good that he tried.



* DitzyGenius: According to the additional investigation in Case 6, Clawhauser, despite his obvious scatterbrained personality, is a genius capable of solving a puzzle with a very complex code without really thinking about it.

Later, he very quickly discerns the meaning of legalese papers Nick couldn't parse at all in the ''same scene'' where he initially mistook it for a TV listing.


Added DiffLines:

* MyNaymeIs: One of the earliest suspects is named Phern. Nick wonders if he should start spelling his name with a silent k (Knick).


Added DiffLines:

* SkewedPriorities: [[spoiler: Katee]] would rather risk going to jail for theft than risk someone else knowing that [[spoiler: she uses bogberries to make her grass juice palatable.]]


* CouldSayItBut: In a few of the early cases, Chief Bogo gives Judy and Nick praise for their work on the case in this manner.

* FairPlayMystery: The game is designed so that if you pay attention to all the dialogue you come across and profile images then you can figure out who committed each crime.

Added DiffLines:

* NoAccountingForTaste: In Necklace Nabbers, a mouse named Donna is attracted to a sleazy gerbil named Dinks. Neither Judy nor Nick see the appeal.


Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag: Nick not wanting to touch anything dirty, which comes up most times that he and Judy find something that needs to be cleaned at the crime scene.
* ShaggyDogStory: The Two-Ton Teddy additional investigation in Slashy Tires. He was planning to propose to his girlfriend but lost the ring in the limo. When Nick and Judy find the ring box, it's covered in sauce, so they wash it off. Then they look inside to make sure the ring is still there, and the ring is ''also'' covered in sauce, so they clean it off. When they return it to Teddy, [[spoiler: he is mildly disappointed that it's no longer covered in sauce, because the sauce was a relationship quirk]]. Made longer by the fact that this arc takes ''six'' stars to complete, when most individual additional investigation arcs only take two or three.


* FauxDeath: The cause of some confusion in one case, when [[spoiler: a possum falls so hard asleep he's [[YouFailBiologyForever mistaken for dead]], and then his "body" is reporting missing when he wakes up and walks out of the hospital.]]
