* HarsherInHindsight: The picture in which [[spoiler:which you and your romantic partner lose the fight against Evil Namco High]] was used for the "Namco High is shutting down" announcement on Website/ShiftyLook.



* JustHereForGodzilla: The main draw of the game was dating Namco characters. A majority of people seemed to have played just to have a shot at the ''Homestuck'' cast.

* TaintedByThePreview: Some people were turned off by the idea due to Hussie's presence. But by that same token, Hussie's involvement sold many others on the idea, in spite of it being a DatingSim (a notoriously unpopular genre outside of Japan), and a particularly strange one at that.
** The announcement of ''Homestuck'' characters in the cast drove a lot of people away, as they'd hoped Hussie could do something completely new rather than go back to the well.
*** Hey, [[CashCowFranchise if the cow's still making milk...]]

* WTHCastingAgency: Non-actor example, but pretty much everyone had this reaction when it was announced Hussie was doing a DatingSim. Apparently, the people at Website/ShiftyLook wanted Hussie to do something, and he suggested the genre.

Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedCharacter: The exchange students from ''Homestuck'' and the ship from ''VideoGame/{{Galaga}}''. The latter in particular, because the game makes no effort to update the "character." It's still a non-anthropomorphic arrangement of pixels vaguely in the shape of a spaceship. The official site [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this:
-->THE GALAGA SHIP IS THE MOST ALLURING, CAPTIVATING, AND ENCHANTING THING IN THE UNIVERSE.


* HoYay: While pretty much ''any'' interaction could count as this depending on how you interpret Cousin's gender, especially during the introductory scene, there's rather a lot of this between Hiromi and Toby in her route (Toby being, despite the name, female), and one of Valkyrie's first lines is to make a fairly blatant pass at Meowkie while winking hugely. Then there's Nidia's route, in which her initial list of likely candidates, based solely on hotness, consists of Richard Miller, Hiromi, and the Galaga ship.
