* AdultFear: [[spoiler: Vigo gets a heavy dose of this. First Miriam, his wife, dies, then his son David [[DangerousForbiddentechnique enters the Void]] in a misguided attempt to her back - an attempt that leaves him comatose for several days, mumbling in his sleep to someone, whilst Vigo can only watch. David finally wakes, looking terrified, and then dies. Poor guy.]]

'''''Amulet''''' is the brainchild of Kazu Kibuishi, editor of ''Flight'' and author of the webcomic ''Copper'' and graphic novel ''Daisy Kutter''. It's a series of graphic novel (seven, so far) chronicling the adventures of Emily, her brother Navin, and her mother, as they find themselves caught up in an subterraneous alternative world called Alledia. The eponymous amulet is found by Emily in a new house they move into. Alledia is home to wild and imaginative things like tentacled monsters, walking houses and talking trees. Here, Emily finds herself trying to not only keep her family together, but also fight an increasingly brutal war against an evil race of elves bent on dominating everyone else. She at least meets a lot of friends along the way to help her, although whether or not she can trust them isn't clear.

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: The color of individual Stones denotes the color of the magic that each Stonekeeper uses. It also denotes the color of the spirit (aka the Voice) behind each one. [[spoiler:Although in that it's subverted. Emily's Voice, which is pink, is also the spirit behind Max's teal Stone. In this case it's the symbol on the stone, and not the color, which denotes the spirit connected to it.]]

* BloodFromTheMouth: Sometimes happens to characters in action sequences who receive a heavy blow.
** Max coughs up blood when he's injured during [[spoiler:his escape from prison fifty years ago. It signals that he's dying and desperate enough to make a deal with the Voice.]]



* DealWithTheDevil: It's implied that a Stonekeeper allowing their Stone to take complete control is this. The Stone grants its user unimaginable power even greater than they already had, but the user may go insane or cursed even worse than before as a result. [[spoiler:In some cases, the Stone may keep using their body after they're already dead.]]

* HistoryRepeats: A very blatant one for the elves. Virgil points out that just glancing through their historical archives reveals that every 500 years a Stone with a Voice shows up in the hands of an Elf King, which is followed by a period of intense war and strife. After 500 years of peace, the cycle begins again. The current Elf King is just the latest in the cycle.
