* EvilCostumeSwitch: A minor, unintentional version. Bastian's mantle (cloak) was silver until the battle when it was described as black. It remained black for the remainder, even after his switch back to sanity. It was finally left at the House of Change.

* IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace: The Swamps of Sadness and Spook City.



* InformedAttractiveness: Gaya, the dark princess, is described by G'mork as "very beautiful...to me anyway". Given that her admirer is a ferocious werewolf who loves the sinister and fiendish, a human might find her to be a [[EvilIsSexy malevolent yet alluring temptress]], or a stark reminder that other beings' preferences may be a ''tad'' different than our own.

Added DiffLines:

* InvisibilityCloak: The belt Ghemmal that Xayide gives to Bastian, is made of glass and makes the wearer invisible. Bastian was disconcerted the first time he wore it as he couldn't even see himself so he couldn't take it off without Xayide's help.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: The point of the book was that the book Bastian was reading was luring Bastian into breaking the fourth wall of the book. His scream is heard in the book, Atreyu enters into his image in the second gate to the Southern Oracle, and Bastian actually sees the Childlike Empress as Atreyu first saw her. Eventually, Bastian broke through the fourth wall.
** The narration describing the geography of Fantastica is introduced as a pause in the story to talk directly to the audience.

** Franchise/TolkiensLegendarium is referenced on a number of occasions:
*** The dragon Smerg, which sounds an awful lot like [[Literature/TheHobbit Smaug]]
*** Smerg's lair is said to be in a land called Morgul, which is a name applied to multiple places and objects in MiddleEarth.
*** The construction and layout of the Ivory Tower is quite similar to that of Minas Tirith.
*** The bark trolls are awfully similar to Ents in their description.
