* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Cassiopeia can see into the future, but just 30 minutes, and [[YouCannotChangeTheFuture she cannot change how things are going to turn out.]]
** At first glance, Momo herself, with her listening power, might qualify. Until that scene with Gray Man BLW/553/c, where she gets him to betray himself.
*** The even earlier scene of her inviting the builder and the bar/restaurant owner can also count, all she does is listen and yet they make up. The book makes a point that she often listens to people pouring their heart out and that helps them realize important truths: like after such a session, a person who thinks they are a dime a dozen will feel like they are irreplaceable and one in a million, and so on.

A film was made in German in 1986. Michael Ende involved himself in the production of the film, after having been disappointed in the adaptation of ''Film/TheNeverendingStory''. FYI, the best way to get the DVD is from South Korea via Ebay, as that version is All-Region and has English subtitles. The European version is Region 2 only and has no subtitles.

* ParentalAbandonment: Momo doesn't know where her parents are, and before the book started she had escaped from a children's home of some kind. Her parents are never mentioned again after the first chapter.

* TheAirNotThere: during the timestop, Momo can still move around, as can the Grey Men and Cassiopeia. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] because all of them carry a bit of their own time with them - Momo has the flower, the Grey Men have their cigars, and Cassiopeia is explicitly stated to have her own time within her.

* AllForNothing: The grey men convince people that the time they give away is being invested in a bank, and that they will earn interest on it. [[spoiler: Instead, they consume it through their cigars. Meanwhile, the people let their lives grow greyer and greyer...]]
