Added DiffLines:

** ''Dreams in the Witch House'' features a female antagonist.


Added DiffLines:

* WickedWitch: Keziah Mason from "Dreams in the Witch House" is a rather typical example of this trope being old and reclusive, using something like black magic, and making a deal with a Satan-like deity.

* ChromosomeCasting: No Lovecraft story has a female lead, and many of them don't feature women at all. The only significant female character in Lovecraft's works is Asenath Waite in ''The Thing On The Doorstep'' (and even there it turns out that [[spoiler:Asenath's father swapped bodies with her before the start of the story).

** "The Shadow Out of Time" mentions Crom-Ya, a barbarian chief who lived around 15,000 B.C. This is a homage to Literature/ConanTheBarbarian, Robert E. Howard's most famous character.

Added DiffLines:

* OctopoidAliens: Lovecraft may be the TropeCodifier with the description of the Great Old Ones and related creatures. Most of them involve tentacles of some kind, and his most famous character, Cthulhu explicitly has a face that resembles an octopus, albeit crossed with a human skull.
