* FrogsAndToads: In ''Wings'', a certain species of tiny frogs that only live in the water-filled interiors of Bromeliad flowers is mentioned several times. Grimma, in particular, sees them as such an obvious metaphor in regards the Nomes themselves that one of the last things The Ship does before leaving Earth is to stop and harvest a frog-filled flower. The series is even sometimes referred to as the Bromeliad Trilogy.

* {{Masquerade}}: Nomes have concluded that dealings with humanity are too risky, and put a fair amount of effort into remaining hidden.



* WainscotSociety: A fairly literal instance, especially with the store nomes, who live in the walls and under the floors of a human building.

* {{Lilliputians}}
* MouseWorld

to:

* {{Lilliputians}}
{{Lilliputians}}: The big point about the nomes.
* MouseWorldMouseWorld: The nomes are small, although big enough to keep rats as (relatively large) pets.



* TheOutsideWorld: Initially, Masklin has to venture beyond his original home, and force his family to come with him; later, he has to make all the store nomes first leave the store, and then go much further.



* ScavengedPunk

to:

* ScavengedPunkScavengedPunk: Smarter nomes are very inventive with fragments of human junk.

* Bowdlerization: In the original broadcast of Episode 1, there was a brief scene showing Mr Mert being grabbed and eaten by a fox. The VHS release edited this scene so that we didn't actually see it happening (nor did we hear his subsequent screams). The scene was restored for the DVD release.

* ShoutOut: In the sequence where the Nomes are searching for the bottle of 'Drink Me'(in itself a shout out to ''Literature/AliceInWonderland''), we get a brief glimpse of some [[DangerMouse Danger Mouse]] VHS tapes, with the old Video Collection International and Thames Video logos visible. Shortly afterwards, a Nome turns on a television showing clips from both [[DangerMouse Danger Mouse]] and Cosgrove Hall's version of [[WindintheWillows Wind In The Willows]].
** At one point, as in the book, Masklin delivers the line, "It's a small step for a man, but it's a giant leap for Nomekind.
