* NotQuiteTheRightThing: Bastian falls into this trap with a lot of his wishes. In many cases it's because he's careless or he means well but hasn't fully thought through the potential consequences of his actions, although there are some situations where he is also doing the 'right' thing for selfish reasons (namely, doing something that seems good because he wants everyone to see him as benevolent or because he thinks he'll benefit from doing so rather than because it's the right thing to do). This is lampshaded when he makes his beloved pony's most fervent desire come true in order to give himself a reason to 'upgrade' to a seemingly better mount, only to feel curiously ambivalent and guilty afterwards despite seemingly doing a good thing for her:

** Wandering Mountain is a mountain that is never in the same place and no one can ever hope to look for it. Only if they were destined to find it can they do so.

The story purposefully has lots of loose ends (in the form of left-off side stories and secondary characters), to drive home the point that it ''is'' a "Neverending Story". In addition, there was a scene in the original novel where to convince Bastian that this was [[UpTheRealRabbitHole "real"]] the Childlike Empress tells the Historian to read the story over. Which includes what Bastian had done that day. This gets them all stuck into a timeloop until Bastian accepts it and enters the story.
