** In the spin-off comics Ash has become something of a crossover whore, having encountered Film/{{Darkman}}, the [[UniversalHorror Universal Monsters]], Series/{{Xena|WarriorPrincess}}, [[Film/ReAnimator Doctor Herbert West]], [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]] and [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason Voorhees]] in ''Comicbook/FreddyVsJasonVsAsh'', the ComicBook/MarvelZombies (in what ended up being --- very rare for an intercontinuity crossover --- their canonical OriginsEpisode), ''ComicBook/DangerGirl'', ''ComicBook/HackSlash'' and... UsefulNotes/BarackObama.

* ChekhovsGun: The locket Ash gives Linda winds up being extremely important near the end of the first two films. In the first [[spoiler: it's what allows him to reach the Necronomicon so he can destroy it]]. In the second film he discovers it and it reminds him of his love for Linda [[spoiler: allowing him to break free of being possessed by a Deadite.]]

** Ash shows his inability to remember phrases already in the first film where he's about to share something profound a friend of his had said, but then can't remember it. This quirk comes back to bite him in the ass in a big way in the third film.

* DirtyCoward: Scott in the first movie. Played with in the sequels with Ash, where he seemingly acts like a coward, but he either really isn't or just mans up.

** Included in the cellar is a ripped poster from ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes''. Creator/WesCraven returned the favor by showing ''Evil Dead'' on TV in ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984''. Then Raimi did it again by sticking a Freddy glove in ''Evil Dead 2''.

* AlternateTimeline: The games typically go into their own paths in regards to what happens after ''Evil Dead 2''. Hail to the King throws together multiple elements from across the series into a single plot, ''A Fistful of Boomstick'' has Ash escape the cabin without getting sucked away into a portal, and spends his time drinking away his sorrows. Regeneration has much the same, except he ends up sent to an asylum.

In 1979, a bunch of teens got together in a cabin in Tennessee and made a film with a standard BMovie plot; this film was ''Film/{{The Evil Dead|1981}}''. The film, which was directed by Creator/SamRaimi and starred Creator/BruceCampbell, succeeded through elaborate gore effects, slick cinematography, and sheer audacity to make enough money to warrant two sequels and get into the public consciousness. The result of the two sequels was a strange blend where NarmCharm meets RuleOfCool.

* BigBad: The unseen entity that brings about the Deadites, posseses people and trees and even Ash's severed hand. In the third movie it incarnates itself as an undead clone of Ash. In the second film, it is forced to manifest a physical form and becomes a huge head that uses the trees as arms.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first film is straight up low-budget horror. The rest of the franchise leans far more heavily on comedy, with Army of Darkness being straight up parody.

The third film catapulted Ash from cult classic-dom into pop culture popularity; there are four videogames, tons of comic book adaptions (including {{crossover}}s with [[MarvelComics Marvel Zombies]], [[Series/XenaWarriorPrincess Xena]], [[{{ComicBook/Vampirella}} Vampirella]] and [[ComicBook/HackSlash Hack/Slash]], as well as ''ComicBook/FreddyVsJasonVsAsh''), a RolePlayingGame under the {{Unisystem}} umbrella, and [[http://www.evildeadthemusical.com/ a Broadway musical]] all based on Ash and the ''Evil Dead'' trilogy.
