* FiveStagesOfGrief: Tommy goes through these over the course of the film:film (notably, he seems to set a world record for the longest time moving between stages- it takes him ''[[spoiler:about five-hundred years]]'' to finally get from Depression to Acceptance):

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalModesty: In Aronofsky's graphic novel version, Tom the Astronaut and Izzy are both naked in all of their scenes together in the spaceship (which is understandable, considering Tom spends all of his time alone, and Izzy is either a spirit or a hallucination in those scenes). In the movie, Tom the Astronaut stays clothed, and Izzy only appears as echoes of Present!Izzy and Queen Isabella during the future scenes.

* AnachronicOrder: You could say that.



* BookEnds: Izzy tries to convince Tommy to spend time with her, time he insists he needs for his cancer research (which he performs for her sake but, ironically, draws him away from her.) [[spoiler:At the end of the movie, [[MyGreatestSecondChance the timeline gives Tommy another chance at this scene]], but this time [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming he accepts the invitation and joins her]]]].

Once [[spoiler:Izzy passes away, a grief-stricken Tommy takes Izzy's fountain pen and tattoos a "replacement" on his skin. Future Tom has that same tattoo slightly faded, plus a multitude others that show the passage of time]]. At the end of the film, he [[spoiler:plucks it out of the conquistador timeline]] using his [[MindScrew third eye]].

* AbsolutelyHappened: Strongly averted; in the film there are no easy answers. Played straight in [[TheBookOfTheFilm the graphic novel]].

Added DiffLines:

* NeverTrustATrailer: For simplicity's sake, the trailer strongly gives off the impression that the multiple time periods are a straightforward case of {{reincarnation}}; in the actual film, it's a bit more complicated than that. Though never explicitly spelled out, it's strongly hinted that Brother Tomás (from the year 1500) is [[ShowWithinAShow just a fictional character]], and that Tommy (from the year 2000) and Tom the Astronaut (from the year 2500) are [[Really700YearsOld actually the same person]].
