Added DiffLines:

* 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".

* WretchedHive: The East End of Victorian London. TruthInTelevision.

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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* FieryCoverup: [[spoiler:The fire that destroyed Alice's home, killed her family, and caused all the trouble in both games was actually started by Alice's psychiatrist, Dr. Bumby, in order to hide the evidence that he raped and murdered Alice's older sister Lizzy.]]

** [[spoiler: In fact, every single boss battle excepting the final boss is one of these, as the potential battle is usually interfered with by the Infernal Train.]]

* {{Hammerspace}}: Probably where Alice keeps her weapons, like the Teapot Cannon, the Hobby Horse and the Pepper Grinder. There isn't enough space to keep them all in her dress. They tend to disappear into thin air once she's finished using them.

They tend to disappear into thin air once she's finished using them. Wonderland being all in her mind justifies it though.
