** The monsters all look like smaller versions of [[TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]] and are even called "thin men". They even cause your screen to [[InterfaceScrew blur and skip]] and make a sort of [[HellIsThatNoise electronic static sound]] as they get closer.

* WeaponOfChoice: The protagonist comes to a gun shop filled with automatic weaponry and even (somewhat inexplicably) a chainsaw. His statement that his pistol is more "his style" prohibits the player from picking up any of it.
** The player hopes this is simply a case of AwesomeButImpractical being employed, as shotguns are very noisy and could potentially attract all manner of monstrosities towards you.
** However, because the pistol itself is fairly loud anyway and doesn't come with a silencer, its truly a moment of TooDumbToLive. Your character is ''intentionally'' snubbing weapons that increase his chances of survival.
** It's more of a case of RealityIsUnrealistic: using guns you aren't trained in (especially high-recoil ones like shotguns) is an easy way to injure yourself. Swinging a chainsaw around in combat is also a great way to accidently cut your own leg open.

* ShoutOut: When speaking to the Cat Plush, You will sometimes say "[[HelloKitty Hello, kitty]]".
** Chuck the Plant is a common EasterEgg in LucasArts adventure games.
** The room where TMWWA & The Man in Blue reside has a ''TwinPeaks'' theme going on. The Man in Blue launches into a bizarre dance, similar to the series' Dwarf character.

* TheMovieBuff: The Director's {{catchphrase}} "We're all in this together." is a quote from the Canadian sitcom ''Series/TheRedGreenShow.'' "Here's looking at you, kid" is from ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'', while "the world is yours" is the slogan from ''Film/{{Scarface 1983}}''. This implies he may be an actual film/TV director.

* TwoRoadsBeforeYou: TMWWAB is a pacifist entity, and seems to stand in polarity with the intractable aggression of The Man in Blue. While the man in blue provides ammo for your handgun, which in turn promotes a violent and destructive playstyle, the "Man Who Wears a Box" provides batteries and food, which promotes a peaceful and pacifist playstyle.
