* EasyAmnesia: the waters of the stream near the Tree of Death have amnesia so easy you can forget your own name. [[spoiler: A drop at a time of the water every now and then stops Bill from [[GoMadFromTheRevelation going mad from the revelation.]]]]

* GainaxEnding: we never find out what Rose Madder really was, why she wanted to save the child from the maze, where she was taking it, what she planted the Erinyes body with, who made her sick, what will happen to the new Tree of Death...

* WorldTree: one of them anyway, the Tree of Death. Rose Madder makes Rosie plant a new one in her world to replace the one that died. Since this is Stephen King, it shouldn't be surprising that the CosmicKeystone isn't exactly nice.

* HeroOfAnotherStory: Rose Madder, [[AntiHero possibly]]. She seems to be on the [[OrderVsChaos Order side of things cosmically speaking]], which is [[CrapsackWorld as good as cosmic beings ever get in Stephan King's world]]. She's desperately trying to complete some epic scale quest before dying, and it's large and complex enough that her role in helping Rosie isn't even really a blip.

**However, based on [[TheDarkTower other stories King has written]] and has [[TheTalisman contributed]] [[BlackHouse to]], it might be inferred that Rose Madder is Rosie's 'twinner' or an [[AlternateSelf alternate]] version of her, perhaps from another level of the Tower.

* TheBadGuysAreCops: Since Rosie's major experience with police is Norman and some corrupt buddies of his, she's terrified of cops. She does eventually meet some ''good'' cops who take guys like Norman ''very'' personally.

* ClingyCostume: [[spoiler: Norman should not have put the bull's head mask on. Though actually its more like he's clinging to the mask once he's possessed by the Bull Erinyes.]]

* BodyHorror: [[spoiler: Although Rose Madder appears to be a beautiful woman, underneath her glamour she's rotting from the inside out. And on top of THAT she's actually some sort of spider being hiding her true form so she doesn't drive mortals insane. Also, Norman when possession by the Erinyes turns hhim into a cyclopean Minotaur.]]
