* HorrorHost: Cain and Able are the originals, while almost every other major and minor character gets to present or tell a story at some point in the narrative, although not all the tales told would fall under horror per se.

An interesting comic from [[VertigoComics Vertigo]] by Matthew Sturges (''Jack Of Fables'') and Bill Willingham (''ComicBook/{{Fables}}'') that combines an overall storyarc with an anthology, since all the patrons of the House of Mystery have to pay with stories. Strongly connected to ''ComicBook/TheSandman''. The series lasted for 42 issues (July, 2008-December, 2011) and two Annuals.

* CainAndAbel: The versions from ''ComicBook/TheSandman''. They make a short appearance in the beginning, where it turns out that Cain's home, the House of Mystery, has mysteriously vanished.

* CompletelyMissingThePoint: Overlaps heavily with UnusuallyUninterestingSight. It's an inter-dimensional pub, so these people often come from insanely different and fantastic worlds, which [[ButForMeItWasTuesday are perfectly normal for them]], so they often end up telling rather standard stories accompanied with amazing or horrifying visuals.

* DoggedNiceGuy: Genevieve started out like this (admittedly as somewhat of a DeadpanSnarker as well) when she first pursued various Cresses on various worlds, until she finally got a few, then proceeded to start dating as many as she possibly could, only to get caught. Yet another reason why the Cress of this story may be so grumpy.

** Well, ''Sandman'' borrowed Cain from ''The House of Mystery'' in the first place, but yes, his role in this title plays with elements of the character introduced by Gaiman.

* CompletelyMissingThePoint: Played with: Jordan's story is about how he was almost late for work because he put on the wrong shoes. What he fails to mention is [[spoiler:his world is filled with giant arachnids, dragons, homeless zombies, Elder Gods and ''vampire cats'']], but he did mention that he was a terrible story-teller.
