* RedEyesTakeWarning: '''And how.''' The Man With Red Eyes is a soulless monster right at the bottom of the UncannyValley, as befitting IT's enforcer.
* RuleOfFunny: The two-dimensional planet, to a certain definition of "funny." It's almost instantly fatal to any three-dimensional being (like, say, humans) that find themselves on it, so their visit is quite mercifully cut short.

* CareBearStare: How Meg saves the day. [[spoiler: The Dark Thing, and its servants, such as IT, cannot understand love. Meg isn't quite able to save Camazotz by loving (and thus destroying) IT, but she can love Charles Wallace and save him.]]

* DarkIsEvil: Partly straight, partly averted. The "clear" darkness of space is contrasted with the "fearsome" darkness of the Dark Thing, after the star attacked and wounded it. And on Camazotz, IT's power often manifests as a pulsing, rhythmic [[LightIsNotGood light]].

** 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 Dark Thing. They also have no eyes, and have no concept at all of light or sight.

* GreaterScopeVillain: The Dark Thing, a malign cosmic force attempting to destroy all creativity and positive emotion in the universe, world by world. Many planets struggle with it, including Earth, but some, like Camazotz, have already fallen.

* ImpossiblyDeliciousFood: When Meg is among Aunt Beast's people, recuperating from her tessering [[spoiler:by her father]] through the Dark Thing, this is the food she gets. Contrasting with the food on Camazotz, which ''looks'' like normal food but tastes like sand without the psychic power of IT to cheat the brain, the food of the beasts is grey and shapeless, since nothing on Ixchel has any color, but so tasty that human language literally cannot describe it.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse / ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: The Dark Thing never appears in the sequels, which instead refer to the [[MadeOfEvil beings of evil]] as the Echthroi. Neither are Mrs Whatsit, Who, and Which, or Progo ever mentioned again, even when later novels involve other cosmic agents of good helping the protagonists.
