* DeathByMaterialism: When the Djinn visits Alexandra's boss to get her address, the latter gets a bit too greedy when he sees the possibilities. He wishes for a million dollars, so the Djinn blows up a passenger plane with the guy's mother onboard so he can get the life insurance, then later drags him to hell.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: When you get down to it, the Djinn's modus operandi. He actively advises humans to make wishes, even those who are aware of his nature so they can try to beat him at his own game. He ''always'' finds a loophole, and lampshades how futile these attempts are, since it's nearly impossible to outsmart an eternal being.

And the fire gave birth to the Djinn, creatures condemned to dwell in the void between the worlds. One who wakes a Djinn will be given three wishes. Upon the granting of the third, the unholy legions of the Djinn will be freed to rule the earth.\\

* TheWorfEffect: Played with on a meta level. See HeyItsThatGuy on the Trivia tab for the classic horror icons that are a list of the Djinn's victims.

* AchillesHeel: The Djinn has one main weakness: he can only use his powers in the service of wishes, which annoys him quite a bit ("Do you have any idea how frustrating it is to have unlimited power, and only be able to use it when some worm asks you for something?"). Without a wish, he's virtually powerless except for his NighInvulnerability. He doesn't even use physical force to push past people. Getting everyone to stop wishing is next to impossible, however. Particularly since what qualifies as a "wish" is pretty arbitrary. Like a woman at a party saying "You can see right through me..."
** Note that in the case of that woman's "wish", the Djinn was actually responding to an earlier wish by the host that his party would be talked about for centuries. Some wishes give the Djinn a LOT of leeway.
