** Pkhrxng Fshlfn Dhlkbch seeks to devour all things. Having a mouth large enough to swallow a blue whale whole on its palm might help with this.
** Omega has the same ambition, on a considerably larger scale. Pkhrxng Fshlfn Dhlkbch looks at the stars and hungers, but Omega has already consumed entire multiverses.
* OurGodsAreGreater: The blood demon believes that humans are the pets of third-rate gods.
* PokeInTheThirdEye: Now Cordelia has changed the future, {{seer}}s mostly GoMadFromTheRevelation. Fortunately, every single prophetic device disintegrated, reducing the casualty rate.
* PublicDomainArtifact: One of the Four Great Treasures of Ireland, and a copy of {{Excalibur}}'s sheath.
* SarcasticConfession: Since she cannot lie, when she needs to disguise herself Dame Margo wears a badge truthfully saying she is wearing a disguise, which no one believes.
* SealedEvilInACan: The altars to Pkhrxng Fshlfn Dhlkbch, sealed directly under Cordelia's house by the Mayor a century ago.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: Explained as the intended purpose of the Crucimentum, for both watcher and invigilator. If either of them fail to object, they get KickedUpstairs, without ever learning its true purpose. Giles is not pleased to discover this.
* ShoutOut: Several. The references to LordOfTheRings and Series/DoctorWho are pretty obvious, but some of the others are rather more obscure.
* SideEffectsInclude: The "Watcher matches" which creates a magical flame has a strange label.

* SpeakOfTheDevil: Using the true name of the Abomination Beyond the Wall in any way is an invitation to possession.
* TheStationsOfTheCanon: Adverted. Cordelia ''thought'' that this how her wish would turn out but external supernatural influence slowly starts to derail events.
* TarotMotifs: Both major and minor arcana are used. Giles explains that everyone is connected with one card or another, just as they are with the Zodiac signs, but this only really matters for those exposed to immense occult forces. Unfortunately, by that point all the main characters qualify.
* TransformationTrauma: A mind-raped teenager is slowly transformed into a mindless demon, screaming all the way.
* TryToFitThatOnABusinessCard: A demon made of blood who attacks Sunnydale High has a rather pompous series of titles.

* UltimateEvil: Omega, the last word in Evil. The First lied, unsurprisingly.
** Ironically, not actually evil, though most of its pawns are. It just believes very strongly that the universe would be a better place if it didn't exist except as part of Omega's body.
*** In other words, it's a paperclipper-type UnFriendly Artificial Intelligence. Something there's reason enough to worry about in real life, though not so much "discovering" as "making".
