* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Hitsuzen, a concept introduced in xxxHolic though its general themes appeared in earlier works. In particular, Cardcaptor Sakura, Tokyo Babylon and X1999 touch on the inevitability of fate and prophecy.

* CanonWelding: ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' combined the Plot of ''Manga/xxxHolic'', ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' and numerous other CLAMP works into one huge GambitPileup.
** So far, it seems that ''Manga/xxxHolic'' is canonically in the same universe (modern-day Tokyo) as ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'', ''Manga/{{Kobato}}'', ''Anime/BloodC'', ''Manga/SukiALikeStory'', and ''Manga/DrugAndDrop'' (which also crosses over with ''Manga/{{Wish}}'').
** Even before Tsubasa, CLAMP was fond of this. ''Manga/{{X1999}}'' is the sequel to ''Manga/TokyoBabylon'' and his universe (also a modern-day Tokyo) is the same of ''Manga/ClampSchoolDetectives'' and therefore ''Manga/ManOfManyFaces'' and ''Manga/DuklyonClampSchoolDefenders''.
** ''Manga/AngelicLayer'' and ''Manga/{{Chobits}}'' as well are implied to be in the same continuity.

* MaybeEverAfter: Their favorite ending...even in Denouements.
** ''Chobits'' is probably the work which is closest to every featured couple having a HappilyEverAfter.
* MindScrew: Deserves a special award! Their [[TsubasaReservoirChronicle latest]] [[Manga/XxxHolic works]] have taken it UpToEleven frying brain cells across their fandom and leaving a probable legacy of several decades worth of forum discussions, all of which add to the confusion even more. Trying to trace the law of causality after a case of NiceJobBreakingItHero would cause more brain damage than the combined screws of Quantum Mechanics, Relativity, and Superstring Theory put together! Just one of the results was a situation where thanks to incorporating every single type of TimeTravel, you can't say if it is AlwaysIdenticalTwins, AlternateSelf, IdenticalGrandson, GenerationXerox, CloningBlues, MyOwnGrampa, TangledFamilyTree, EveryoneIsRelated or a blow your brain combo of all of these put together simultaneously! After overdosing on this trope, things have reached a point where, after the end of ''[[TsubasaReservoirChronicle Tsubasa]]'' & ''Manga/XxxHolic'', even WordOfGod has admitted that [[HoistByHisOwnPetard they too are rather confused over how everything turned out and want to re-read it]].
