* SpaceWhaleAesop: "Be compassionate towards all creatures and don't go around murdering innocent seabirds, or else you'll wind up stranded in the middle of the ocean, all your friends will die, their corpses will torment you, and when you eventually make it to land you'll be forced to constantly wander the world telling your story instead of being able to live a normal life."

* TheUndead: Upon paying penance for his crime, the crew rise from the dead and sail the Mariner's ship to land. It is also insinuated that the Mariner has been rendered either undead or incapable of dying in order to tell his tale to as many as he can.\\

* TooGoodToBeTrue and AGlitchInTheMatrix: The Mariner points out that there's something wrong with the way the unfamiliar ship is moving towards them, considering there's no wind, no tide and it's coming way too fast.

* AesopCollateralDamage: The Mariner learning to value life took the death of his entire crew.



* DisproportionateRetribution: The events of the poem occur because the Mariner kills an albatross. Then again, some critics argue that the albatross is representative of Jesus. Also, Myth/NauticalFolklore holds albatrosses to be good omens (perhaps as they often show land is near) and in killing one it was believed you bring on bad luck and misfortune. Of course, the fact that everyone on the ship ''except'' the Mariner died because of the albatross slaying not only makes it disproportionate, but misaimed.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: The Ancient Mariner and the Wedding-Guest.
** Also the Pilot, his Son, Death, Life-in-Death, and in fact nearly every if not every named character.

* NamelessNarrative: No one has a name, unless you count [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Death and Life-In-Death]].

* CommonMeter: Throughout. If you want to make sure you can never take the poem seriously again, try singing it to "Yankee Doodle". Or the theme from ''GilligansIsland''.
