* ThirdLawOfGenderBending: After Tip is turned back into Princess Ozma, he instantly transforms from a fairly rambunctious boy to an exceedingly girly girl. However, given the date of publication (1903) it's highly unlikely anything else would have been considered acceptable.

* PumpkinPerson: The book has a rare ''non''-evil version with Jack Pumpkinhead, who shows up in several of the later Oz books (eventually getting one named after him [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Pumpkinhead_of_Oz]]), as well as appearing as a character in ''Film/ReturnToOz''. He is basically a wooden scarecrow brought to life by a magic powder. His pumpkin heads eventually rot, so he keeps a pumpkin patch to replenish them, and Ozma carves him a new face. The old heads are buried in a graveyard at his house.

* RandomEventsPlot: Most everything that happens in the story either comes out of nowhere or has virtually no impact on aynthing that happens afterwards. Perhaps the best example is when the main characters accidentally fly out of Oz, land in a jackdaw nest, use some magical wish-granting pills to fly back to Oz, but forget to take the pills with them. What does this episode add to the story? The world may never know.
