* LaserGuidedAmnesia: this is done to Pidge and Brigit at the end, as a kindness to them, so that they can walk completely in the human world without being troubled by memories or wanting to return to Faerie. They meet the red fox again and even give him saudsages to eat, and are troubled by an odd sense they've met him before, but Cooroo doesn't let on.

* SortingAlgorithmOfThreateningGeography: Two children living in modern Galway are drawn into the other Ireland of myth and legend. As their quest progresses, the mythological landscape is at first funny, absurd, Disney-Oirish, even, with hints of something deeper beneath. It gradually becomes darker, bleaker, more sinister, as the life-or-death nature of their quest asserts itself, and the final showdown with the forces of Not-Good takes place in a Mordor-like bleak and barren place. It's like going from a leprachaun Hobbiton to a Mordor ruled by the Morrigan.

* ForTheEvulz: All three Morrigan sisters. However, they ''feed off corpses,'' so causing as much havoc still does serve them.
