* DarkIsNotEvil: The inhabitants of Camazotz' sister planet Ixchel are scary dark beasts, but also very kind and wise, and are fully engaged in fighting the Black Thing.

** Finally, both Averted and Lampshaded with the Beasts of Ixchel. They physically resemble StarfishAliens more than the [[UncannyValley seemingly-human]] inhabitants of Camazotz. They're little more then humanoid outlines covered in tentacles and are telepathic, but they are the dead opposite of IT: Warm, gentle, empathic and life-giving, they are totally dedicated to fighting the Black Thing. They also have no eyes, and have no concept at all of light or sight.

* HiveMind: Downplayed on Camazotz. While the people there have their own minds, after a fashion, they have no individuality at all and their wills are ultimately subservient to the will of IT, which, it it implied, contains their collective memories.
* HumanAliens: The people of Camazotz. They look just like ordinary people on Earth, living in an ordinary suburb... except ''they all do exactly the same things at the same time.'' And then our protagonists meet [[TheDragon The Man with Red Eyes.]]

* KarmaHoudini: IT gets away scot-free in the original novel. Not so in the TV movie. Then again, the TV movie has [[spoiler:Meg freeing an ''entire planet'' from brain-washing by [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath making one awkward, rambling speech]], [[AntiClimax then winning]].]] Later books imply that IT and the other "forces of evil" out there have not ''escaped'' their karma per se; they will get what's coming to them as soon as a "good guy" is able to fight them off. Meg might not have been strong enough to [[spoiler:love IT]], but next time, who knows?

** According to the author in a note at the end of the first book, "Mrs. Murry" uses the period at the end of Mrs. because she is American. The British spelling is "Mrs" without punctuation - she preferred using the British spelling, sans punctuation, to indicate the foreignness of the Mrs W's.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Mrs Whatsit is over 2 billion years old, and she's described as being very ''young'' compared to her two companions whom she looks up to.

!!The 2003 Adaptation contains the following tropes:
* CoversAlwaysLie: The DVD cover features the three main characters on a winged ''horse'' above a medieval-looking castle, neither of which remotely resembles anything that appears in the film.
* NeverTrustATrailer: Much of what you see in the trailer is not what's in the movie, with some shots even ripped from other films!
