Added DiffLines:

* DecoyProtagonist: Bode is definitely the focus of the first volume and the Locke child who discovers most of the keys, and Kinsey is the focus of most of the school drama. But the last volume makes it clear that Tyler is the true protagonist, [[spoiler: closing the series' themes by becoming a man and 'the king of the Keyhouse', and correcting his father's mistakes]].

* ArtifactOfDeath: The Ghost Key, especially since [[spoiler:Dodge uses it to kill Sam Lesser]] at end of the first volume. [[spoiler: Breaking Sam's neck first probably helped with that though.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PairingTheSpares: While there is a brief love triangle between Kinsey, Jamal and Scot, there's barely any chemistry between Scot and Jackie (save a couple of weird moments) before they suddenly become a couple, and end up [[spoiler: dying in each others' arms and having their funeral service together]].

* InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja: Subverted. Dodge briefly considers a Ninja disguise([[ShoutOut which looks a heck of a lot like]] [[VideoGame/NinjaGaiden Ryu Hayabusa]]), but decides against it.

* LovecraftLite: The main villain Dodge is possessed by one of the young of Shub-Niggarauth, and one of his siblings mentions the plains of Leng. But the story is too light-hearted to be traditionally Lovecraftian.

** All of the magical Keys can fall under this, too. Special mention should go to the Bitey Key, which was presented as just a doodle of Bode's. wasn't; in the Grindhouse one-shot a depression-era Locke woman uses it to dispose of an intruder.

* CelebrityParadox: Nobody remarks on the fact that the town of ''Lovecraft'' is hosting a ton of magic and the odd EldritchAbomination, which - plus the fact that the name dates back to the American Revolution - implies that HPLovecraft isn't a going concern.
** Nope, HP Lovecraft exists in this 'verse too. We can see 'In the Mountains of Madness' by HP Lovecraft on the second shelf of the bookcase when Nina finds the Echo Key in "Crown of Shadows." Apparently there are just no Horror fans among the cast.

* EverythingsNuttierWithSquirrels: In one issue which takes place over the course of a month, Dodge's various attacks on the Lockes are shown as single panels. One of them features an army of sword wielding squirrels. Sadly, the history of the Squirrel Key has yet to be revealed.

** At the prom, Jamal and Scot recreate the prom queen scene from {{Carrie}}...which probably not coincidentally was written by Hill's dad, StephenKing.
