* TheWormThatWalks: The Incubators [[spoiler: and Pyramid Hogger]] are an interesting variation, being corpses that are controlled by a hive of Larval Ravening Worms. [[spoiler: For Pyramid Hogger, however, it's more of a PainfulTransformation initiated by the worms entering his body.]]

* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:The world itself reacts badly to any jokes about Mankirk's wife. (Some of the "players" on the forums [[IKnewIt correctly guessed]] the significance of this.)]]

There is also an earlier bit wherein Ted attempts to access the Help files, and instead gets a mangled wall of text with "Help me find Mankrik's Wife" hidden in the broken sentences.]]



* [[spoiler:TinfoilHat: Annie wears one that gives her immunity to "CIA Satellite Brainwave Surveillance, Mind Control and Tracking", explaining why she wasn't picked up by Ted's Tracking earlier. She makes him one shortly thereafter so that Ted can switch off Aspect of the Beast safely.]]

* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: Discussed [[spoiler: and [[AvertedTrope averted]] ''[[AvertedTrope hard]]'' once Annie escorts Ted and Scratch to the [[SceneryGorn Crossroads]].]]



* EvilIsVisceral: [[spoiler: The Crossroads in the Dark World is all but turned into the BloodyBowelsOfHell, thanks to Pyramid Hogger.]]



* HopeSpot: At one point in the story, Ted creates an incredibly powerful bullet known as the Godstorm Shell, and muses that he should save it for use on Pyramid Hogger. [[spoiler: Upon being cornered by Hogger, however, he fails to even fit the bullet into his rifle because [[DidntThinkThisThrough the caliber was too big]].]]



* SceneryGorn: Oh, so much. Not only are the normally populated zones of Durotar empty, but several areas show signs of carnage that had occurred before the story began. [[spoiler: Notable examples are Tiregarde Keep being filled with mountains of desiccated corpses from an ancient battle, the sudden and inexplicable appearance (and disappearance) of bloody piles of {{Gorn}} inside Razor Hill's training hall, the Barrens becoming shrouded in gigantic brambles and teeming with zombified {{Meat Puppet}}s, and the most horrifying example of all: the entire Crossroads town in the Barrens, recreated out of the rotting bits and pieces of players killed by Pyramid Hogger.]]



* ThisLoserIsYou: The Incubators. Appearing near the end of the story, they're [[spoiler:the husks of everyone who was in the Barrens when Mary destroyed the world. They are constantly babbling about things commonly discussed in the General chat channel there -- memes, insults, asking for the location of Mankrik's wife, and so on. To ''World of Warcraft'' players, Barrens General chat, colloquially known as "Barrens chat", was considered one of the most annoying things in the game prior to the ''Cataclysm'' expansion splitting the zone in two.]]

* MentalWorld: [[spoiler: Zalazane]] traps Ted in his own mental landscape, which resembles a decrepit old troll temple in the center of a virgin rainforest. While inside, all sense of proportion and dimension are off, with the zone being fully sized one second and incredibly tiny the next. [[spoiler: Curiously, however, the items which Ted crafts and/or retrieves while inside Zalazane's mind are retained once he exits, and two of them become highly useful to him later on. Not to mention that Scratchfever follows him ''inside'' the mental landscape. This is largely attributed to some sort of [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve limited reality bending]] possible only in the DarkWorld.]]
