* SadlyMythtaken: When the characters meet a giant bird, Ted calls it in his mind, among mythological giant birds, a "Hwaragelmir"... even though in Nordic mythology, this was the name of a ''chasm'' and not a giant bird. This mistake occured because Ellison asked a friend for the name of a mythological bird and didn't bother to check if it was correct or not.

* ExplainExplainOhCrap: In the radio play, the characters start cheering at the sight of the canned goods- at least until Benny starts smashing the tins on a rock:

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Project Perfect Image results in this in the game; people like Adolf Hitler and Josef Mengele both commit suicide upon looking into the [[GoneHorriblyRight mirror]] after looking at their true personalities and what they had done.

** "[[spoiler: I am a great soft jelly thing. Smoothly rounded, with no mouth, with pulsing white holes filled by fog where my eyes used to be. Rubbery appendages that were once my arms; bulks rounding down into legless humps of soft slippery matter. I leave a moist trail when I move. Blotches of diseased, evil gray come and go on my surface, as though light is being beamed from within. Outwardly: dumbly, I shamble about, a thing that could never have been known as human, a thing whose shape is so alien a travesty that humanity becomes more obscene for the vague resemblance. Inwardly: alone.]]"

He is then left alone in the cold chambers of AM for all eternity, the last human alive, and victim to all of AM's tortures, having directed all of its hatred onto himself. He is also haunted by his killing of the other four and it's implied he only acted out of total desperation without thinking everything through, and he now has to exist with no mouth, with pulsing white holes filled by fog where my eyes used to be.
