- Broken Base: There's a number of fans who hate 3 for being so different from the previous games, while others are just fine with it.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Despite the player being unable to save her, Lotte is the most popular of Jennifer's friends within the Fandom. There's also the Scissor Twins from 3, who seem to be the most popular of the Subordinates.
- From Ghost Head is Bates/Sho. Both are complete badasses, but Bates is also played by Roger Jackson, and he's the only voice actor who has any talent.
- Also, Gotts from the second game for both averting Police Are Useless and being the only character who takes being chased by Scissorman in stride. His best scene is when Scissorman appears, he calmly draws his gun and shoots him. Of course, he quickly discovers his bullets don't have any effect...
- Funny Moments: The Oven Evasion point in Clock tower 3. The concept of "Backing up" hadn't been invented yet, back when Scissorwoman was alive.
- There are also two comedy hacks (one of which is incomplete) for the first game here.
- Heartwarming Moments: The end of each stage in the forth game, when Alyssa puts the spirits to rest.
- Hell Is That Noise: Bobby's scissors in the first game.
- And Dan's in the second.
- Idiot Plot: Clock Tower 3. Where even to begin?
- Macekre: The third game, Ghost Head is set in Osaka, Japan. They try to fit it in California in the localization, despite everything being so Japanese. The references to Japanese folklore were completely removed as well.
- Moment of Awesome: When the birds you freed earlier in the first game come to Jennifer's rescue.
- Lotte's (sadly non-canon) Heroic Sacrifice to rescue Jennifer in the first game.
- Most Annoying Sound: At least in Clock Tower 3. "Alyssa! Alyssa! Alyssa!" or "Oh ho, that's a nice trick! Oh ho, that's a nice trick!"
- "Snippity snap!"
- Nightmare Retardant: In 3. Sledgehammer is truly frightening but everything afterward is this. Maybe except Corroder because you do see him kill people in horrifying ways, yet he gets repelled in very goofy ways like being slammed by a toilet door.
- The Scrappy: While not as widely hated as Scrappies in other fandoms, Dennis gets enough flack to at least warrant his own entry on the LiveJournal group hated_character. From a few games back, Nolan receives some squicked out reactions for having a relationship with a 15 year-old, but generally isn't vehemently loathed. Also, no one likes Harris, for some reason.
- Also, Anne, from the first game, gets some flak because one of her four lines has her teasing Lotte's nervousness shortly after arriving in the mansion.
- Tear Jerker: The forth game has lot of it. Many cutscenes show you how lives of lovely people were ruined by your stalker.
- The first game has both of Lotte's death scenes.
- That One Boss: The final boss of 3. Here's a friendly diagram. The LP it's taken from explains why
- To elaborate, the boss in question, Lord Burrough, has a ton of health, his attack are too fast for you to charge a full shot (except on the rare occasion when stands there and laugh, and yet...) and he can kill you instantly if he hits you three times, just like you can (except that you don't kill him instantly. You just deal great damage). He's beatable (mainly thanks to his habit of telegraphing each of his attacks), but if you hadn't saved enough special arrows, prepare yourself for a very long fight.
- Uncanny Valley: Invoked in the fourth game because you do see corpses, but also unintentionally invoked with the character designs.
- Viewer Gender Confusion: Players sometimes confuse Lotte from the first game as a boy.
- Despite the fact that Lotte has huge knockers and comes from an all-girls orphanage.
