** Oddly enough, while Spanish Flu is never mentioned, it is noted that Walter had suffered from typhoid fever, the reason he had not been attending college the year "Rilla of Ingleside" starts.

* MrFanservice: Walter Blythe in Rilla of Ingleside- a dark-haired, grey-eyed, tormented poet who goes to war in spite of his fear of pain and the horrors of it. Delicious. His dad Gilbert can also come across this way, largely thanks to his patiently devoted courtship of Anne.

** Also in that same book, there is an extremely oblique reference to Anne starting her periods. The doctor warns Marilla to let Anne get plenty of exercize and fresh air and leave off her strenuous studying for the summer--Anne is around 14 at the time. In the time period this story is set (the 1880's) most medical professionals believed that menstruation weakened women and made them anemic and nervous, and that too much cerebral activity could make it worse. At the time the book was published, older girls and women would understand what was happening to Anne, without it being spelled out.

* BlackComedy: The musical makes great use of this (see DarkerAndEdgier and DeliberateValuesDissonance below), most notably Mr. Phillips brief innuendo-laden song about "[[UnusualEuphemism attending to the needs]]" of his female students.
* BlitheSpirit: Anne in every single book, which makes her marital name very [[MeaningfulName meaningful]], which is lampshaded on a few occasions.
** One of her twin daughters, Nan, is also portrayed as being this way. It's mentioned in ''Rainbow Valley'' that she is "Blythe by name and blithe by nature".

* DeadPersonImpersonation: It turns out that Leslie's husband [[spoiler:actually is dead, and on the way to tell her the news, his UncannyFamilyResemblance cousin got a TapOnTheHead and ended up with IdentityAmnesia. Everyone presumed that he was the dead husband, and only an operation lets them all know this was the wrong assumption.]]

* DeadGuyJunior: Most of Anne's kids are named after dead people or family/friends. Ditto Leslie's kids, and most of the other Islanders'. This was a fairly standard naming convention in that place and time.
