* IfICantHaveYou: [[spoiler:Nessarose decides that if Boq won't give her his heart, he might as well not have a heart to give, and reads a spell from the grimoire to do just that.]] Say "hi" to our Tin Man.

* MagicAIsMagicA: You can't undo one of the grimoire's spells once it's cast, you'll have to use a different spell that MIGHT get what you're after.

* ColdBloodedTorture: The Wizard's guards try to get Fiyero to give up Elphaba's location by taking him out to a field to be tortured. However, Elphaba tries to save him by [[spoiler:casting a spell from the grimoire that ultimately turns him into the Scarecrow]] so it's unclear exactly how much/long Fiyero suffers from this attempt.

* HeroWithBadPublicity: All Elphaba wanted to do was help save the Animals (and these are animals of human-level sentience). But by the end of the musical, she's considered a monster by most Ozians and has come to be known by them as the "Wicked Witch of the West" depicted in TheWizardOfOz.
