* StrangeSyntaxSpeaker: Most everyone, especially older characters. It's essentially what you would get if you crossed Hiberno-English with MametSpeak. The style was so distinctive it was parodied "How Are Things In Irish Drama?", the ForbiddenBroadway take on ''Beauty Queen''.

* FakingTheDead: [=McDonagh=] LOVES this and its various subtropes. In the Aran Islands plays, it's a specific {{Homage}} to ''The Playboy of the Western World.''

Added DiffLines:

* MametSpeak: Dialogue can be realistically clumsy, irregularly paced, and very frequently dips into vulgar.
-->'''Ken''': You don't even know we're here hiding out.\\
'''Ray''': What are you talking about?\\
'''Ken''': You don't even know we're not here on a job.\\
'''Ray''': What, on a job?\\
'''Ken''': Yeah.\\
'''Ray''': Here? Film/{{In Bruges}}?\\
'''Ken''': Yeah.\\
'''Ray''': Here? In Bruges? On a job?\\
'''Ken''': Yeah.\\
'''Ray''': Why? What did he actually say?\\
'''Ken''': He didn't actually say anything.\\
'''Ray''': Then why do you think it might be?\\
'''Ken''': I don't think anything. But it's a bit fucking over-elaborate, isn't it? ''"Go take him to hide out." "Go take him to hide out where?" "Go take him to hide out in fucking Bruges."'' You can hide out in Croydon.\\
'''Ray''': Hmm. Or Coventry. Hmm. It is a bit over-elaborate. Hmm.

* MaybeEverAfter: Billy and Slippy Helen in ''Cripple.'' FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you realize siblings Mairead and Davy in ''[[TheLieutenantOfInishmore Lieutenant]]'' share a last name with Billy Claven (established to have no living relatives) and many personality traits with Helen and her brother Bartley. [[DownerEnding That is, if Billy lives much longer after the play]].

* {{Gorn}}: Between the blood, gore, and kitty brain matter in ''[[TheLieutenantOfInishmore Lieutenant]]''; hot oil in ''Beauty Queen''; flying bone chips in ''A Skull in Connemara''; and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking raw eggs]] in ''Cripple'', it seems like [=McDonagh=] is off his game if he hasn't created a hideous mess for stage management to clean up every night.

* ChekhovsGun: Very prominent examples exist, so much so they alone act as a RewatchBonus. For example, the page for ''Film/InBruges'' notes how almost all the minor conversation act ass {{foreshadowing}} for something to come.

* '''Feature films''': ''Film/InBruges'' (2008), a BlackComedy which follows two Irish hitmen hiding in Belgium following a hit that went wrong; and ''SevenPsychopaths'' (2012), which follows [[AuthorAvatar screenwriter Marty]] trying write a script, only to draw unwanted inspiration when dragged into a dog-kidnapping. ''Bruges'' won [=McDonagh=] the "Best Original Screenplay" BAFTA, and earned starring actor Colin Farrell a "Best Actor" Golden Globe, while ''Psychopaths'' starred an EnsembleCast and has become somewhat of a CultClassic.
