* The story contains [[ShoutOut lots of references]] to [[JRRTolkien J.R.R.]] [[TheLordOfTheRings Tolkien]] and [[WilliamShakespeare William]] [[TheBardOnBoard Shakespeare]] because Bastian probably knows a lot about their works.

** Funny you should say that, because he did the same for me for ''Film/TheNeverendingStory 3''. After all his lamenting about how [[CharacterDerailment out-of-character]] the characters were, I began to think, and I came to realise: ''They are so out of character for a reason!'' At the point where Bastian comes across Falkor, the Nastys already have a hold of the book and are messing around with the story. Considering the fact that they are probably ''barely literate'', and most definitely don't read, all their ideas of characters would be ''pretty much retarded''. Take the Rockbiter and family, for instance: They are essentially a fantastic sitcom, because HEY, this was the nineties, so the Nastys probably watch almost nothing but sitcoms. He sings a stupid rock song because HEY, rock songs are cool! let's have him sing one while on his awesome hog! - Tropers/TheRealCJ
*** Not that any of this was explained in the movie itself, where it would have mattered most.

** The story is, in a way, never-ending; it is all but outright stated that this is not the first time a human has had to enter Fantastica to give a new name to the Childlike Empress / Moon Child, nor will it be the last. Hence, it continues in a cycle; Bastian's contribution to the cycle is made, but someone else will have to do so again at some point.

!!The Song:

[[AC: FridgeBrilliance]]
* The song recorded by Limahl for the soundtrack of the movies begins by fading in to a melody that's already underway, and then fades out at the end. Thus giving the illusion that the song, like the story, is never-ending.
