* FasterThanLightTravel: The tesseract, although Mrs Whatsit disclaims moving at any speed. Instead, they "tesser" or "wrinkle."

Instead, they "tesser" or "wrinkle.""[[note]]As the novel explains it, tessering is akin to folding space or a temporary wormhole. Basically, two points in space-time are temporarily brought together, with the person or group performing the tesser having moved from the first to the second point while they overlap[[/note]].

* TheFifties: Written in 1959. The most obvious manifestation is in [[TotallyRadical the kids' slang]]. However, Camazotz does almost directly critique fifties suburbia (see DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything above), and the book is in many ways a protest against the prevailing thought at the time.

However, Camazotz does almost directly critique fifties suburbia (see DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything above), and the book is in many ways a protest against the prevailing thought at the time. It even works fairly well today, as the conformist society of the fifties is often seen as a stifling and restrictive society by younger readers who grew up in a more permissive time.

* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: What the Mrs W's use, with the possible exception of Mrs Which, who has problems materializing fully and doesn't look like much of anything. Even when she does briefly materialize, she's in the form of a "stereotypical witch".
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when the children note that, despite the Mrs W's efforts, [[PaperThinDisguise they couldn't actually pass for humans at all]]. Living in abandoned houses, [[NoSocialSkills completely ignoring normal social conduct]] and [[NoodleIncident stealing sheets to "use"]] might've gone a lot worse in different circumstances. And then Mrs Whatsit's line about "getting caught in a downdraft and blown off-course". ...[[{{Foreshadowing}} huh.]] [[{{Flight}} What could she mean by that]]?
