* ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: Even some of the memories you retrieve are suspect. [[spoiler:For one, one Memory has Alice's mother pleading with Alice to stay with them during the fire. A more likely one urges her to save herself.]]

* ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: Even some The entirety Wonderland, of course. Some of the memories you retrieve are also suspect. [[spoiler:For one, one Memory has Alice's mother pleading with Alice her to stay with them during the fire. A This totally contradicts a different (and much more likely one to be accurate) memory, where she instead urges her Alice to save herself.]]

* MoneyGrinding[=/=]MoneyForNothing: It's possible to just complete the first chapter over and over to max out your weapons, giving you full power long before you'd normally have it (sometime in chapter 5, usually). Once you do, though, any teeth you collect are only good for use with the Hattress dress, which uses them in place of health.
* MoneyMultiplier: The Steam dress increases breakables teeth drops. The Silk Maiden dress increases enemy teeth drops. This only works after you've beaten the game, though.

* DreadfulDragonfly: The Bolterflies are big dragonflies made out of nuts and bolts. They latch onto Alice, immobilizing her and sucking out her health. Made even more annoying as they spawn endlessly from nests scattered around the battlefield, until all the nests are destroyed.

* TheManInTheMoon: Tundraful, the icy first location of chapter 2, features a white and blue crescent moon that has a peaceful looking face and smokes a cigarette through a long-holder. The produced smoke forms the bright green auroras that illuminate the sky.

* DenOfIniquity: The Mangled Mermaid.



** Take a wild guess as to who [[UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper Jack Splatter]] is a homage to. Interestingly, though, the game is actually set in the 1870's, a full decade before the whole Ripper business occurred in real life.



* TheOldestProfession: It's a big theme of the game, and it is ''not'' romanticized. ''At all''.

** Alice herself was nearly forced into this in the struggle to survive on the impoverished streets of London, before Pris Witless intervened and got her a job as a maid at Bumby's. Ironically, though, [[spoiler:Bumby's ultimate goal was to turn Alice into a mindless prostitute anyway.]] At the beginning of the game, she briefly encounters Jack Splatter, who offers her a job "saving the world, ten minutes at a time".

Added DiffLines:

* ClamTrap: Giant, ''teethed'' clams are all over the Deluded Depths. These insidious creatures lure Alice into their shells using bottles, teeth or memories, and should she stay too long, they close up on her and kill her.

* StalkedByTheBell: In the tombs in Chapter 2, you have to follow the light over the platforms. Staying too far behind and letting the darkness touch you results in alarmingly fast health loss.

Added DiffLines:

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Justified in the Wonderland levels, but in the London segments, no so much. She's pulled out of a dirty river by two dock workers, rescued from a burning brothel, thrown in jail, and yet never once looks the worse for wear.
** She was apparently burned badly enough in the fire that killed her family that she spent a whole year recovering in the hospital - yet she has absolutely no scarring whatsoever. The creators have attempted to justify this by stating she only had first degree burns, though this doesn't fit with them having been severe enough to nearly kill her.


Added DiffLines:

* GuideDangIt: Good luck finding all of those memories, bottles, pig snouts and radula rooms without a guide. Many are ''extremely'' well hidden, and the game goes out of its way to block you from doing much backtracking - just going a few steps too far will often cause a door to shut behind you, forcing you to restart from the last checkpoint.


Added DiffLines:

** It is also unclear how much of what Alice sees in the "real life" London levels is actually real, and how much is just more of her hallucinations.


Added DiffLines:

** Originally this was meant to be averted by Alice morphing into a mermaid during this level, but implementing it was apparently too complicated, and the idea was scrapped.
