* DayOldLegend: It explores this idea in-depth, as Bastian can create whole worlds from scratch, and they come with their own history and mythology, even if Bastian did not think this up himself.

-->Bastian: Where are we Moon Child?
-->Moon Child: I am with you, and you are with me.
** Which is also 100% factually accurate. The two of them are together in the middle of a void of nothingness, because Fantastica has yet to be reborn.

* ItsAllAboutMe: This is Bastian's fatal flaw and the reason why most of his wishes in Fantastica go horribly wrong. Because he starts out as a LoserProtagonist, he wishes for strength, good looks, favorable opinions, to be feared and so forth. Even when Bastian wishes for good things to happen for others, it's always about secretly getting something he wants, or increasing his own appearance of benevolence. The story even points out that the motive behind doing a good turn for someone is as important as the good turn itself. It takes all of Bastian's selfish wishes going wrong to show him how low he has sunk after morally wounding Atreyu and later seeing what becomes of the other humans who went down similar selfish paths and became trapped and mindless in Fantastica. Bastian's last remaining wish breaks this cycle for him, because it's a wish to love someone other than himself and this put another person first before his own wants.

* IWishItWereReal: The story is in a sense, an in-depth analysis of the idea of WishFulfillment, playing it straight in the first half of the novel, then [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor deconstructing it]] and rebuilding it at the end. The story itself even comments on this:
--> ''You wish for something, you've wanted it for years, and you're sure you want it, as long as you know you can't have it. But if all at once it looks as though your wish might come true, you suddenly find yourself wishing you had never wished for any such thing.''

* ContrivedCoincidence: Bsatian believes two events are this in the book. The first is when he screams , the characters hear a scream. That was justified in thinking it a coincidence. The second is when Atreyu is looking into the Magic Mirror, the second gate to the Southern Oracle. He sees Bastian and the description Bastian reads is an exact description of him and his surroundings. It freaks him out, but Bastian tries to think of it as a coincidence.
