* AncientArtifact: Every witch, good and bad, appears to draw power from a [[MagicalAccessory jeweled artifact]]. Glinda uses a wand, Evanora has a huge jewel in a pendant, and Theodora has a ruby ring. Breaking the artifact deprives the witch of all her power and breaks certain enchantments; [[spoiler:that's what happens to Evanora at the end.]]

* FakeWizardry: In the climax of the movie, Oscar "Oz" Diggs devises a plan that centers on making a big stage trick that the Wicked Witches will confuse for real magic. During the "final battle", he creates a fake apparition of himself with smoke makers and a projector (helped by the friendly tinkers) while claiming that "Oscar Diggs died so the great Oz could be free". Its scare tactic works greatly as, when the witches shoot fireballs at it, he appears to vanish but then reappears himself (because the tinkers turn the projector on and off by his command).

* PropagandaHero: The Good Witch thinks of the main character this way when she tells Oscar to save the land from the Wicked Witches, as the people are longing for the legendary "Oz" so much that even just an image of Oz will suffice to liven up their spirit.

* {{Expy}}: Interestingly, the three witches can be seen as being inspired by their portrayals in Wicked -- but in different roles. Theodora is Nessarose (the Wicked Witch of the East, [[spoiler:as both turn evil and crazy due to broken hearts as well as being young and naive]]), Glinda is Elphaba [[spoiler:(a good witch who is thought of as wicked, and can see through the wizard's facade)]], and Evanora is like Wicked's Glinda [[spoiler:(advisers to the heads of Oz who are prepared to compromise morals for their own benefits and power).]]
