* EnergyBeings: It, itself. When Bill [[spoiler:initiates the Ritual of Chud, "It" flings him through It's mind into a "Darkness beyond the universe", towards where It's true form resides as a swirling mass of Orange Light.]]

* ATruceWhileWeGawk: During the rock fight. All of the kids (RagtagBunchOfMisfits and JerkJock[=s=] alike) stop fighting and turn to watch Victor Criss and Bill Denbrough start a dual rock-throwing UnflinchingWalk towards each other. Even ''[[AxCrazy Henry]]'' pauses to watch.

* AuthorTract: One occurs against a specific style of writing a few chapters in: we're given details about Bill's struggle in a college writing class, particularly with the man who is the instructor and would-be mentor. Bill is interested in writing stories for their own sake and cultivating his talent, the instructor insists [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotDidactic everything must be didactic]] and is more interested in every story being an allegory for a stereotypically left-leaning political or social statement. On a whim Bill submits one of his works to a horror fiction magazine and gets high praise. He sends the review to the instructor, who returns it with enormous, frustrated markdowns. This was the start of a nasty falling out which ends with Bill dropping out and he goes on to become a success anyway.

* ChekovsGun: Lots of past events that are mentioned fairly in the story -- like the 1931 execution of the Bradley gang or the fire at the Black Spot -- are returned to and expanded later on.

* PoliceAreUseless: The Losers don't even bother to go to the cops because they are GenreSavvy enough to know they won't be any help. Also invoked by Mike's father after Henry attacks him and drenches him head to toe in mud; Mike's mother demands he call the cops, but dear ol' Dad doesn't do so because he doesn't care for the police chief Borton and views him as a spineless jellyfish who won't side with him.

** During the reunion lunch, Mike contrasts Derry's violent proclivities by mentioning "[A] medium-sized city in Texas where the violent-crime rate is far below what you’d expect for a city of its size and mixed racial make-up." It's a reference to La Plata, the town at the epicenter of the "calmquake" in the ''Literature/NightmaresAndDreamscapes'' story "The End of the Whole Mess."

* Misblamed: An in-universe example; Henry is accused of committing all the murders in the Summer of 1958, when in reality, [[spoiler:the only person he actually kills is his own father]], but his sanity is so far gone by that point that he doesn't fight the charges.
