* RealPersonCameo: We never learn the full name of the DJ in Chapter 6, but the fact that he's a dubstep artist coupled with the fact that his initials are S. Moore heavily imply he's {{Skrillex}}.

* GunsAreWorthless: Well, when you're firing a semiautomatic at a [[RealityWarper giant whirling cloud of insanity]] it's probably not going to hit much... subverted slightly by explosives and flamethrowers being excellent Picasso removal tools.
* InsanityImmunity: Dave Smith, who was so deadlocked by anxiety issues as a child that he eventually punched through madness and out the other side to become a preternaturally UnfazedEveryman. [[spoiler:He endures a full-on mental assault from Bedlam without batting an eye, although more mundane life worries can paralyze him.]]

* LiteralSplitPersonality: [[spoiler:Bedlam, Echo, and Lucid. All three look just like Patient 23 all three have different takes on what to do with the city. Also, Penelope as Lucid personified.]]

* OmnicidalManiac: Echo, who normally encourages suicide as a way out of the City. [[spoiler:Since the city is actually a DreamLand, she wants to wake up the dreamer and obliterate the entire City in one go. Would actually wake Penny up, not kill her as such, since she's the literal (sleeping) consciousness of Patient 23. Of course, it's still a dream... hard to tell how close to her waking personality she is...]]

* ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: Occasional moments from the perspective of a Picasso. They don't realize they're mentally a scattershot RealityWarper -- they're just lost, in more than one sense of the word.

* AlienGeometries: It's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin right there in the title]]. The amount of alien-ness varies, from illogical city layouts to straight up surreal and twisted hallwayscapes. People infected with "cubism" who turn into roaning Picassos also ignore spatial laws freely.

* RealityWarper: The cubist Picassos are these; roving monsters that twist the world around them as they pass. [[spoiler:So, to a far greater degree, is Penelope. It makes sense; the city is her dream. Well, the normally one would say the city is her waking self's dream, but she's never yet been awake.]]
