* MagicalComputer: Literally; though Nita and Kit have book-form Manuals and the animals tend to listen to the ocean or wind or whatever, some of the newer human wizards have their manual in laptop or iPod form (a {{Mac}} laptop no less, coincidentally. In-universe, the wizards designing the electronic manuals to resemble Macs because of the symbolism of having their logos be [[RuleOfSymbolism an apple without a bite out of it.]] (Think Adam and Eve, and the theme of a species' Choice to accept the Lone Power's "gift" of entropy.) Out of universe, Duane just really likes apple products (though the YW wiki maintains Windows and Android versions of the manual are being developed.)

* ''Lifeboats'' - Kit, Nita, Dairine and Rolan (among others) are called upon for an emergency evacuation of an entire alien race to new planets, because their moon is about to break up and the pieces will crash into the planet, in full-blown ''Armageddon'' style. Problem is, millions of the aliens almost inexplicably don't want to leave even in the face of unavoidable death and no one truly understands why. Kit, meanwhile, is fretting about Valentine's Day )[[spoiler:since he and Nita were promoted to OfficialCouple in ''A Wizard of Mars'']]) and even a race to save a world isn't enough to get it off his mind.
