* EpiphanicPrison: [[spoiler: The door pops open into the end, allowing the protagonists to leave. None do, because they're all too dependent on each other. Since nobody had an epiphany, they're all stuck there forever.]]



* MinimalistCast: The only characters are Estelle, Garcin, Inez, and the Valet (who's a one-scene wonder).

* SelfInflictedHell: The context of the famous "Hell is other people" quote. The only reason Hell is anything like hellish is because all the protagonists are horrible people who can't help but make each other miserable via social interaction. [[spoiler:Made even more poignant by the fact that the protagonists are given several opportunities to escape during the play, but are held back every time by their own flaws, fears and anxieties. Not only is hell other people, '''''YOU''''' are its security system.]]

** Garcin: another french word for kid. It comes from his desire to be seen as a hero or a man.

* TriangRelations: Played with all over the place. Hell picks the roommates very well; every one of them is ''capable'' of respecting each other at least superficially, but when any two start getting along, the third person will try to break it up out of jealousy; all three are attention whores and cannot stand the other two being friendly. Estelle makes romantic overtures at both but really wants to get with Garcin, who ends up ignoring her in favor of Ines (because he thinks that Ines, as the OnlySaneMan, will be able to validate him), while Ines ignores and degrades him because she's in love with Estelle. The three are perfectly suited to constantly torturing each other via social shenanigans, and yet incapable of dealing with the idea of leaving the other two.

* YearOutsideHourInside: During the play, the characters have visions of life progressing without them on Earth, and it seems like unlike usual Hells in which an eternity is actually a second, what feels like a brief time in Hell is actually several months on the outside.

* MundaneAfterlife: As seen the page quote, the characters are amused that ''Hell'' is a mundane looking hotel. The dialog does make it clear that Hell isn't like this for everyone, though.

A classic play by Creator/JeanPaulSartre that's highly popular in UsefulNotes/{{Existentialism}}, ''No Exit'' is an often darkly comic look at the SelfInflictedHell faced by its three [[VillainProtagonist protagonists]]. They are [[DomesticAbuse Joseph Garcin]] [[DirtyCoward Garcin]], an insecure journalist; [[CardCarryingVillain Ines]] [[{{Sadist}} Serrano]], a [[PsychoLesbian lesbian]] postal clerk, and [[CuteAndPsycho Estelle]] [[{{Yandere}} Rigault]], a [[StepfordSmiler beautiful and charming]] young aristocrat.
