** "I'd be so happy I could melt" from "The Wizard and I". And "When people see me, they will ''scream''..." More poignant: "Someday there'll be a celebration throughout Oz that's all to do... with me!" There is, but it's celebrating her death.

More poignant: "Someday there'll be a celebration throughout Oz that's all to do... with me!" There is, but it's celebrating her death. Although, on this last one, she does admit that "True, the vision's hazy."

Added DiffLines:

* SubvertedRhymeEveryOccasion: The opening song, "No One Mourns the Wicked," has this:
-->'''Midwife''' and '''Father''': I see a nose / I see a curl / It's a healthy, perfect, lovely, little...
-->'''Father''': (''seeing that Elphaba is green'') Sweet Oz!
-->'''Mother''': What is it? What's wrong?

Added DiffLines:

* BreakTheCutie: Elphaba starts off as a wide-eyed, idealistic believer in the plans and abilities of The Wizard. The climax of Act I shows how the revelations of his fraudulent character cause Elphaba to start opposing him.
** Also for "No Good Deed", in which Elphaba decides to embrace her wickedness after she believes she was unable to save Fiyero.

Added DiffLines:

* TheGlassesGottaGo: Doubly subverted: When Galinda takes it upon herself to give Elphaba a makeover (in "Popular"), the first thing she does is remove Elphaba's glasses. The second thing she does is put them back on. All the same, Elphaba stops wearing glasses after that song.

* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: The Clock of the Time Dragon is pretty awesome. It doesn't play a direct role in the story (it's mostly a ShoutOut to the [[Literature/{{Wicked}} book]]), but it has become an iconic feature of the production. It occasionally comes to life, flailing its head and wings around as smoke pours from its nostrils.

* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: ''Flying'' Monkeys. They play a significant role as part of Elphaba's motivation for turning against the Wizard. Chistery, the "leader" Monkey, acts as Elphaba's assistant after she frees him and his kin from imprisonment.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Just like in the novel, the Wizard is a major antagonist, quite different from his portrayal in the original stories, wherein he was a conman who used clever sleight of hand to gain prestige. He is, however, presented in a slightly more sympathetic fashion here than in the novel.
