* FantasticRacism: Inverted. The locals from the nearby towns hate the Innsmouth folk but are actually unaware of the HalfHumanHybrid part. They think the people of Innsmouth are just mixed-race in the mundane sense of the word. Of course, the story today is widely accepted as a metaphor for the danger and degeneracy of miscegenation.

** This is all rather debatable; even Lovecraft, himself, depicted the Deep Ones as sophisticated, if evil, creatures that have a highly advanced culture, as evidenced by their highly developed artistic skills. Likewise, Y'ha'neth'lei, their home city, is presented as a place of endless, if mind-bending, wonders. The citizens of Innsmouth appear degenerate and pathetic because they have absolutely no care for their existence above water, and eagerly wait to leave their humanity behind for good, so they spend most of their time in drunken stupor.

* CrazyPrepared: The protagonist. Given the unreliable technology, one hardly expects a gent to carry a flashlight, or have the Twenties' equivalent of a multitool in his keyring. Both tools see use [[spoiler:and ultimately save his hide]].


Added DiffLines:

* ProperlyParanoid: Replacing the bolt on the main door to his room and fastening all others prevents the main character from being ambushed in the middle of the night.
