Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuelColoringBook: Subverted. The picture 7-year old Evan draws (of himself standing over two mutilated prison inmates with a bloody knife in his hand, which he has no recollection of drawing) appears to be an example of this trope, but is in fact [[TimeTravel an example of something else entirely]].

* CreepyChild: Tommy, who is a total sociopath. Except when he's not, and then he's arguably MORE creepy. He's more of a creepy adult then, though.

** Subverted with Evan. His older self mentally occupying his younger body would cause him to act out in very unsettling ways, such as drawing a vicious murder or suddenly appearing close by with a knife in his hand.

* BlondGuysAreEvil:
** Tommy. Even in a reality where he turns out alright, his hair is brown.
** Lenny, also depending on the reality.

* ParentalIncest: Kayleigh was molested by her father. He molested Tommmy instead in another timeline thanks to Evan mucking around with the timeline.

Added DiffLines:

* DawsonCasting: A mild example. 12-year-old Creator/LoganLerman plays Evan at age 7, and 17-year-old John Patrick Amedori plays him at 13.

** Depending on the witnesses' testimony, the prosecution could point out that Evan kept hitting Tommy after he was incapacitated, I suppose.

* BreakHerHeartToSaveHer: In the theatrical cut, [[spoiler:Evan finally decides that the best course of action is to go back to where he and Kayleigh first meet and be mean to her, so she never befriends him, moves away with her mother, and avoids the sexual abuse by her father which ultimately leads to her suicide]].

* HollywoodLaw: Evan wouldn't go to a regular prison, but county lockup, since he hadn't even been tried. The filmmakers knew this; [[RuleOfCool it was cooler filming in a prison, though]].
