* LGBTFanbase: Many fans of the game have offered their own interpretations of each character's sexuality, and Hallowraith accepts them all. She says that she's happy with giving her characters different orientations because she feels they need more representation in media.

Added DiffLines:

* FanNickname: "Clincel" for Clint, a portmanteau of his name with "[[EntitledToHaveYou incel]]", because of [[spoiler:his {{Yandere}} feelings for Adeline]].


* MostAnnoyingSound: The "whoosh" sound that occurs when one of your attacks misses.


* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: The scene where Adeline meets Skid and Whiskers. Not only is the music beautiful, but it's very nice to see the story take a quick break from its usually dark nature. Despite a few characters showing disdain for the two, Skid and Whiskers turn out to be very sweet guys who warmly welcome you into their hideout. Talking to them reveals that they've missed Adeline and are happy to see her again, despite how horribly she allegedly treated the toys before the events of the game. One question you can ask them is "Was I a bad person?", to which Whiskers replies:
-->"Listen, (player's name). I know ya want to know more about your past... but I think ya should look forward to who you are becoming rather than what ya were."


** Amusingly, Camime gets hit with this a lot. The Discord community loves to joke that her innocent behavior is just a facade, and she's actually [[MemeticPsychopath insane or a jerk]], or, more often, [[MemeticBadass a badass who listens to metal]].

Once her whack-a-rat game was revealed, some players began to see her as insane in a CreepyGood way, effortlessly dragging the evil rats to her room because she thinks they're just dummies for her game.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeArt: While the in-game sprites aren't too shabby, the cutscene images are where Connie's artistic talents really shine. The cutscenes are accompanied by amazing pixel drawings. They look like something out of a children's book, in that they have a very relaxing atmosphere and beautiful style, even for the more creepy scenes.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Connisaur, together with artist Antriksh Bali, have put together a great soundtrack for this game. From ominous ambient music to beautiful orchestral tunes, every song adds a great atmosphere to the game. Especially notable is "[[OrchestralBombing Attacked]]", an intense orchestral battle theme that almost sounds like something out of a war movie.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Is Adeline TheAtoner, who wants to make up for what she did to her toys in the past? Or is she mindlessly [[ExtremeDoormat following and being pushed around by]] the other toys? Alternatively, considering that you get to name her and make choices on what she does throughout the game, maybe it's totally up to the player what Adeline's personality is like, and you're meant to play her however you want.

* JerkassWoobie: Wilson initially comes off as nothing but an abrasive HateSink... unless you talk to him with Clint in your party. Clint delivers a scathing TheReasonYouSuckSpeech that comes across as a little ''too'' harsh. He then forces Wilson to lower his prices for Adeline, which he does only out of fear. From then on, whenever you talk to him, he will still be horribly frightened. In the exchange between Wilson and Clint, we also learn that Wilson has worked out [[DealWithTheDevil a deal with Staya]], Staya allowing Wilson to keep his shop running (or maybe even just to stay alive) as long as Wilson periodically gives Staya some Roaches (which Staya needs for a currently unknown purpose, and which Wilson is better at catching than him.) Wilson seems to be just as afraid of Staya as everyone else, but unlike most of the other toys, he has no friends to look out for him.

Added DiffLines:

* GameBreaker: In earlier versions of the game, Odette would refill your party's health and SP every time you saved your game. This feature was removed because it made the game too easy. However, the ability to refill your health/SP was later reintroduced with the addition of Ire, who performs that service for a fee.

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeHorror: So, Staya keeps all the toys locked in their rooms, and attacks anyone who tries to escape. Once you learn that he wants everyone to wait for Adeline to come to the Dollhouse, you could assume that despite his psychotic, unhinged behavior, Staya really does have everyone's best interests in mind, that he wants them all to celebrate together when their owner returns. But Adeline's backstory would seem to hint that this isn't the case at all. [[spoiler:So, we know that Adeline had AbusiveParents and took out her anger on her toys, having Staya attack them. Then the toys came to life at some point, still remembering what Adeline did to them before. With this information, it seems most likely that Staya doesn't want to help the toys at all. He wants to relive the glory days. When Adeline comes, he's planning to go on a ''killing spree''. Maybe he kept everyone in certain rooms to make them easier targets.]] Basically, whether the toys try to escape or not, they're ''screwed''. The only reason we have a plot is because Adeline [[IdentityAmnesia forgot everything about her past]] when she came to the Dollhouse, messing up Staya's plans.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: It's easy to mistake this for a kid's game, with the colorful cast of LivingToys and all. But the game is officially rated T, for "dark themes", and boy, does it get dark! The protagonist has a tragic backstory apparently involving abusive, alcoholic parents, the Dollhouse is a CrapsaccharineWorld where many toys live in fear of being violently attacked at any moment, blood is shown onscreen (although stuffing and dismembered toys are much more common)... it's rated T for a reason.

Alternatively, considering that you get to name her and make choices on what she does throughout the game, maybe it's totally up to the player what Adeline's personality is like, and you're meant to play her however you want.
