* AdventurerArchaeologist: Lord Henry Mystic is one, and he displays the fruits of his travels inside his Mystic Manor.
* AllAreEqualInDeath: One motif of the ride. Two cases of "murderer and victim brought down to equality" are shown with the tombstone of a cat next to several bird tombstones in the pet cemetery, and with the headless knight singing alongside his executioner. A more subtle example is implied with Constance, who ends up in the same place as everyone else despite her murdered husbands going unseen.



* AdventurerArchaeologist: Lord Henry Mystic is one, and he displays the fruits of his travels inside his Mystic Manor.
* TheArtifact: The heartbeat in the Attic soundtrack no longer made sense after Constance. Originally, it was associated with the mournful Bride character who had a visible glowing heartbeat, but ever since she was replaced by the murderous Constance, it doesn't seem so appropriate. The Disneyland Mansion dropped it altogether sometime before reinstating the Hatbox Ghost.

** Several tombstones are named after the Imagineers who worked on the ride, the most famous being Master Gracey after special effects designer Yale Gracey. Other ones include Grandpa Marc (Marc Davis), Brother Claude (Claude Coats), Francis Xavier (X. Atencio), and Brother Dave (Dave Schweninger). The WDW queue also has one for Mister Frees (Paul Frees, the voice of the Ghost Host) and features a [[Creator/ThurlRavenscroft Ravenscroft]] brand organ.

** A common interpretation of the Happy Haunts. This is more expressed in the spin-off materials.
** The Ghost Host is nothing more than a harmless {{Troll}} that loves getting a rise out of mortals -- but not in the Paris attraction where he's the main villain.
** Constance Hatchaway in the recent refurbishment of the U.S. rides is a notable [[AvertedTrope exception]].

** Played with in Mystic Manor. While harmless things are included in the chaos, all of the potentially dangerous and scary artifacts behave accordingly.



** Phantom Manor's portraits: Melanie having a picnic with her fiance....as ants raid the picnic...along with a rattlesnake, scorpion, spider and beetle; Melanie holding a parasol...in a boat...about to go over a waterfall; Melanie picking roses...from above a tombstone...from which a zombie skeleton is emerging; or Melanie stepping through a stream...which gets deeper...as a water monster reaches for her foot.

* MeaningfulEcho: The ride begins and ends with discussion on ghostly activity. At the beginning, it's an ominous monologue about frightening hauntings ("When hinges creak in doorless chambers..."); at the end it's a song about the partying antics the spirits get up to ("When the crypt doors creak and the tombstones quake..")

** Mystic Manor threatens Alfred the monkey with this, as a samurai suit tries to slice his head off with a katana, and a Mongolian suit of armor holds some impaled helmets aloft. This effect also happens with the singing suits of armor, whose helmets are mounted above and to the right of the bodies.
