* DeathBySex: The heroes split up to search for Jack to protect him from a marauding Giant. While she's searching, the Baker's Wife meets up with the Prince and [[spoiler: has sex with him; she's crushed by the Giant ''immediately'' afterward.]] ** Well, after she has a soliloquy/musical number that sums her mindset up as [[spoiler: "my affair has made me more grateful for what I have but hey it was kind of nice." She's more killed by barely-repentant adultery than killed by sex, since she's a married lady with a child.]]

* ImperfectRitual: A baker and his wife must collect four ingredients for a witch: "[[Literature/JackAndTheBeanstalk the cow as white as milk]], [[Literature/LittleRedRidingHood the cape as red as blood]], [[{{Literature/Rapunzel}} the hair as yellow as corn]], and [[{{Literature/Cinderella}} the slipper as pure as gold]]." Unfortunately, [[spoiler:the hair from Rapunzel is unusable because the witch has already touched it, so the couple substitutes hair from an ''actual'' ear of corn, which surprisingly works.]]

Removing word cruft
* FirstLawOfTragicomedies: The first half is set up as a mix of traditional fairy tales, with plenty of humour, although some of it is BlackComedy due to not going with a Disneyfied version of all of the tales (the fate of Cinderella's stepsisters in particular stand out). The second act shows the fallout of everything that happened to achieve the "happily ever after" of the first act. Despite starting with some very funny scenes, it quickly takes a turn for the worse and character start dropping like flies. There's even a reprise of a very funny song, ''Agony'', a duet for the two Princes talking about wanting unreachable women, which is still hilarious but has a darker undertone due to the fact that they are now cheating on the wives they spent the first act trying to get.

* NoodleIncident: The Baker's parents [[spoiler: supposedly]] died in "a baking accident."" Additionally, when his father stole the beans from the Witch, something happened that caused lightning to flash. The Witch never elaborates what it was and dismisses it as "another story".

** Each act in ''IntoTheWoods'' begins with "I Wish". The one in Act 2 is more of a DarkReprise.

* LongLostRelative: An interesting aversion of sorts in ''IntoTheWoods'', where the baker and Rapunzel are these, but neither realizes and nor does their being related have any effect on the plot.

* HaveAGayOldTime: ** During "Your Fault" one of Jack's lines is "what's queer, is how did the second giant get down here?" - obviously using queer as a synonym for 'strange'. ** A lesser known one in the Witch's rap. She describes the Baker's father stealing her vegetables as "robbing me, raping me". Another definition of 'rape' is to cause destruction of a place - and she's using the word in that context.
