* FauxAffablyEvil: The Chamberlain. For a while he appears to be AmbiguouslyEvil, feigning sympathy and friendship towards Jen and Kira to try gain their trust but comes off as creepy and unnerving due to his [[EvilMakesYouUgly monstrous appearance being a representation of his true nature]]. He quickly shows his true colours, trying to murder Jen once they soundly reject him.

* ShoutOut: Aughra is fairly similar to the Norse god Odin, at least when you know the back story (see the EyeScream entry). They both lost an eye in the pursuit of knowledge, and both consider it an acceptable trade.

* WhenThingsSpinScienceHappens: Aughra's oversized orrery. Justified, as it's a moving model of their world's solar system.

* ItsAllAboutMe: Selfishness is probably the core character trait of each individual Skeksis. [[AllInTheManual The accompanying material]] says that although they hate each other as much as they hate Gelflings, they need each other to maintain their hold over Thra; the minimum number of them to maintain the balance being ten. It's probably the only reason they don't kill each other off completely. WordOfGod says it's also why [=UrSu=], the leader and wisest of the urRu [[HeroicSacrifice chose to die]] -- to unbalance the Skeksis by taking [=SkekSo=] [[TakingYouWithMe with him]].

* LoadBearingBoss: An enormous subversion; [[spoiler:Once the shard is rejoined with the Dark Crystal, the [[EvilTowerOfOminousness castle]] appears to fall apart inside and out in great chunks of stone and mortar. Actually the stone and mortar is merely a thousand years of accumulated filth and grime which is disintegrated by the power of the pure crystal, leaving a [[MageTower pristine castle of pure cut diamond]] as it originally was]].

* WorldHalfFull: By the ending. Sure, the Crystal is healed, the [=urSkeks=] are restored and the land becomes green and good again, but the Gelfling race is still all but extinct with seemingly [[AdamAndEvePlot only two left]], not to mention the decimation of the Podling race. There's a feeling that while things are much better, they aren't as good as the time before all the strife began.
