* MindScrew: Oh boy. While most of the rest of the Strugatsky's body of work is rather hard social science fiction, this is a heavily psychological surrealist mystery, full of symbolism, [[{{TheUnreveal}} things that are heavily implied, but NEVER explained]] and, once you get to the last two acts (the expedition to the North and it's aftermath), some extremely weird stuff. Not to mention the GainaxEnding (see above).

* EldritchLocation: Arguably the entire City and by extension the entire area [[note]] whether it's an isolated compound, another planet or another dimension[[/note]] where the Experiment takes place. The farmlands in the South and the inhabited sections of the City are more or less normal: although dangerous and strange animals seem to exist in the swamps around the farmlands ("furry crocodiles" as big as bulls are mentioned and farmer characters seem to be always armed, with one of them stating that survival is otherwise impossible in the south), there is nothing truly supernatural there, while in the City, strange happenings occur and weird places do exist (such as the Red Building), but are rather low-key. However, in the abandoned sections of the City in the North, things get weirder and weirder, and not in a good way. The more the expedition ([[spoiler: by then largely consisting of the two main protagonists]]) moves northward, approaching the zero point (the "origin of the world"), the worse things get.

* GeniusLoci: The Red Building seems to possess something of the sort, although it's not really explained just what it actually is.
