* StrawCritic: Moon is an incredibly anally retentive over-analytical type who insists on comparing the play they are watching to the works of Sartre. Birdboot is a Dirty Old Man who gives high praise to any actress he fancies seducing.

* {{Calvinball}}: The game of "Pontoon Bridge" in the play-within-the-play.

* {{Calvinball}}: The game of "Pontoon Bridge" in the play-within-the-play. When Birdboot ends up replacing Simon in the game, he has no idea what the other three players are doing, but when he throws a card down and shouts "And ''I'll call your bluff!''", Magnus groans and Lady Muldoon congratulates him; after another even more bizarre round, he tries it again with similar results.

* SureWhyNot: The original stage directions had Moon and Birdboot sat at the back of stage facing the audience outwards. However, almost every director has found it easier to have the critics sat towards the side of the stage at the front.....and Tom Stoppard himself has admitted that this was the best place for them.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: Moon's approach to his reviewing what is basically a simple countryhouse whodunnit.
--> "Already in the opening stages we note the classic impact of thee catalystic figure - the outsider - plunging through to the centre of an ordered world and setting up the disruptions - the shock waves...But there is more to it than that"

''The Real Inspector Hound'' is a play by TomStoppard, first produced in 1967. The play revolves around two critics, Moon and Birdboot, attending the opening night of the titular PlayWithinAPlay (a transparent Creator/AgathaChristie spoof) before gradually getting sucked into the action themselves.
