* AdultFear: Much of the NightmareFuel of the series can go over the heads of its target age group, who are more likely to just focus on the cool adventures and animals. However, if you're an adult who decides to do a nostalgic re-read (this troper did), not only do you catch everything this time around, but it's compounded by the fact that all of it is happening to young children ''and'' teenagers.

* Melissa Chapman pretty much just disappears after the first few books. But it's not an oversight at all. It's the natural result of someone becoming an Animorph, and Rachel at that, and as a consequence losing touch with pretty much all her "normal" friends. Given that Melissa is depressed as it is even before her best friend drops her for seemingly no reason, her life must be awful. Well, awful in her perspective anyway...

* Ax's books are among the most light-hearted of the books. It could be because of his humorous interpretations of humanity… But when Tobias morphed Ax in ''The Illusion'', he was struck by the powerfully optimistic nature of the Andalite mind, and he was subsequently told by Ax that the Andalites do their rituals to ''temper'' that innate optimism. This could be another reason why Ax's books are more lighthearted - his natural optimism is seeping through into his writing.

* In ''The Message'', the kids muse why Cassie and Tobias (and Visser Three) would hear Ax's telepathic SOS but the rest of them wouldn't. They conclude that it must be some connection between Andalites and morphing; and that therefore Cassie can hear it because of her connection with animals and natural morphing talent, and that Tobias can hear it because he's stuck in morph. This could be true, or it could be subtle foreshadowing of Cassie's temporal anomaly superpower and Tobias being Elfangor's son (and therefore part Andalite in a way).

* In ''The Invasion'', Jake nearly tells Tom that he's the tiger when they're in the Yeerk Pool. As Tom is reinfested shortly afterward, Jake nearly sold out all of the Animorphs on day one.
* David's fate - rats only have a lifespan of two to three years. So instead of a death sentence, the Animorphs just gave him a slightly prolonged death sentence. And keep in mind that we don't know all that much about morphing technology. For all we know, he could be a rat with a human lifespan. Which would be worse?
* When Jake's Yeerk starts dying, they both get treated to our first look at Crayak. Does it happen to every Yeerk Controller? And if so, is that why many of the humans who escape that control wind up crazy?

* One of the things Ax finds amusing about [[PunyEarthlings humans]] think the Internet is more advanced than the telephone. At first, this seems equally silly to the reader, but then you realize that Andalite telephones have to transmit {{Telepathy}}, not sound.
** Then again, they also consider the book more advanced than the computer.

* Ax claims to hate all human music but loves commercials, even though almost all commercials use music.
This list shows the last 10 events of 61. Show all.
