* [[spoiler:BittersweetEnding: Bod defeats the Man Jack and grows old enough to leave the graveyard, to explore the world to his liking. However, he no longer has a proper home and his childhood friend Scarlett has forgotten about him. Also, Mrs. Lupescu pulled a HeroicSacrifice to save him.]]

* ChekhovsArmory: Eevery bit of the graveyard comes in handy when Bod has to outwit [[spoiler: the Jacks]]
** The overgrown part of the graveyard [[spoiler: serves as a natural trap for the first Jack, who has a silken cord.]]
** The ghoul gate sucks in [[spoiler: two of the Jacks, and Bod gives them a chance to live instead of getting crushed by the closing door]].
** The Sleer [[spoiler: "protects" Jack Frost as his master, dragging him into the earth]].
* ChekhovsSkill: Bod's ability to "fade," or turn invisible. [[spoiler: When Jack Frost corners him in the house, this ability buys him enough time to escape with Scarlet to the graveyard]].



** Mr. Owens reveals that a girl he knew was the same way, one day liking him and the next say throwing an apple at him. Mrs. Owens insists that [[NoExceptYes "it was a pear"]].
