* ParentalIncest: Implied that this is what Beverly's father wanted to do to her (especially during the scene in which [[spoiler:Mrs. Kersh turns into a witch and then into her father (provided that IT was not just messing with her and was channeling the truth).]] Earlier on, Beverly's mother asks her if her father ever touched her (which Beverly doesn't understand).

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Henry Bowers's gang, despite being brutal bullies themselves, are actually appalled by some of the things Henry does to the Losers, such as trying to carve his name into Ben Hanscom's belly or trying to blow up Mike Hanlon with cherry bombs and M-80s. This mostly goes for Victor and Peter respectievly. Henry himself is also slightly disturbed by Patrick hocksterr not to mention he and his follow a honor code to only attack kids and leave adults alone.

* ShoutOut: ''[[Film/TheWizardOfOz Bowers and Huggins and Criss (oh my)]]''.

to:

* ShoutOut: ShoutOut
** Like many of King's works, the book is ReferenceOverdosed, but the Shout-Out most important to the story is Bill's bicycle [[Radio/TheLoneRanger Silver]], his companion throughout his childhood [[spoiler:and its connection to the Turtle's power]].

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Butch Bowers, Henry's father, who already hated Will Hanlon, Mike's father, for being black, was pushed over the edge when Will started undercutting Butch's produce prices (Will was mainly able to do this because unlike Butch he was a competent farmer and not a lazy dumbass). In retaliation Butch poisons all of Will's chickens. He would have most likely gotten away with it as a jury of Derry's citizens probably wouldn't care that Butch had killed some [[NWordPrivileges n***'s]] chickens, but Butch decided to go the extra mile and paint a swastika on the chicken coop as well, and they ''would'' bring him up on charges for that little shenanigan, what with UsefulNotes/WorldWarII being quite fresh in everyone's mind. So Butch has to pay for the value of the chickens, and he has to sell his prized Mercury automobile in order to afford it.

* JerkassHasAPoint: [[MyBelovedSmother Mrs. Kaspbrak]] usually doesn't let Eddie do anything, because she lives in terror of him dying of illness or injury. In the case of the shoe store X-ray machine, however, she was quite correct when she screamed at Eddie that those things give you cancer.
** Actually no, she is still being over the top even in this case. While it can certainly be argued that regular exposure to ionising radiation is something that should be limited, there is little evidence fluoroscopes 'gave you cancer'. Only one salesperson - people using and demonstrating these machines for ''years'' - has been confirmed as developing cancer. This was a BCC (basal cell carcinoma) of the foot and could easily have happened whether he was exposed to radiation or not.
