* BuffySpeak: in the Knight's level every torch on the wall has a different description starting with 'flame', 'flaming torch', etc. It soon falls into this calling one a '[[TimeyWimeyBall flamey-wamey]] [[Series/DoctorWho thing]]' and another a 'ouchy-hot-burny thing'.

* CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption: [[spoiler:''Every'' level with an NPC can only be beaten by horribly screwing them over in one way or the other.]]
* DarkerAndEdgier: Compared to DoubleFine's other works. The sheer amount of character deaths and BlackComedy would make it stand out even if the game didn't make it easy for players to walk into a BadEnding.
* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: Even The Cave says there can't be any real death; you just teleport back to safe ground in a white mist if you perform a death-worthy action (including [[NotTheFallThatKillsYou falling from a height]]).
* {{Deconstruction}}: Of the zany adventure game Trickster hero. While silly, the generally selfish actions of the protagonists get a lot of people hurt or killed outright [[spoiler: including, in many endings, the protagonists themselves]].

* LeetLingo: The scientist must have l33t hacking skills according to The Cave.
* MindScrew: And how. It's very debatable just how much actually happens in the cave and how much is just illusion, not to mention if the events in the character areas are things that have happened, things that will happen, things that are currently happening or just tests of character.
* MultipleEndings: [[spoiler:At the end of the game the shop owner gives each character what what they came for, but if you talk to him several times you can give it back, getting a different ending for each. After deciding for all three, The Cave will comment differently depending on how many took each one.]]

* SchrodingersGun/[[SchrodingersPlayerCharacter Player Character]]: Played with. The Cave has the same layout on each playthrough and some areas are mandatory. However, there is an area in the cave specific to each character but you will only be able(and forced) to enter the ones pertaining to the characters in your party. If you reach an area but don't have the character in your party, you can't go inside and another path will be available to bypass it.

*** Including her cave paintings, where one of the other scientists bears so much similarity to Dr. Strangelove that it cannot be a coincidence.
