Added DiffLines:

* PopCultureSymbology: The rabbits from Toonstruck are actually Lovecraft's shoggoths; there are also implications of a conspiracy and otherworldy entities behind the game's storyline.

* BloodlessCarnage: Mostly played straight, with one aversion: When Warp pins on the acid-squirting flower, there's a squirt of blood.

Being a toon, Warp is back on his feet in a few seconds.



* MeanBoss: Sam Schumltz, Drew's employer. He's arrogant, condescending and treats his sole cartoonist (who is responsible for his company's ten years of success) like utter shit. And at the end of the game [[spoiler:he brutally shoots down Drew's idea to incorporate Flux into Fluffy's show]].



* RealityEnsues: The ending has a rather tragic example. [[spoiler:Drew is inspired by his adventures (which he thinks are a dream) to incorporate Flux into Fluffy's show as a character foil. His heartfelt pitch to Sam Schmultz the next morning completely fails to move his narrow-minded boss, who is outraged that Drew went against his orders to create more cute characters. Turns out a MeanBoss won't appreciate you doing anything but exactly what he told you to do, even if your proposal is a far superior idea.]] Luckily (?) enough for Drew, [[spoiler:he's not immediately fired because his boss still needs him to create more characters. And also because his adventure was real and he gets sucked back into the Toon world soon after.]]



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The horse that used to be in the stable, after it is malevolated, disappears.
** The game actually lets you ask about its disappearance. While the response is merely [[EvilLaugh a malicious cackle]], the answer becomes apparent once you ask yourself [[spoiler:[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_glue where the glue comes from]]]].
*** As a matter of fact, the presence of the machine ought to be a dead giveaway before you even need to bother asking. Not to mention the fact that the poor bugger was named "[[MeaningfulName Elmer]]".
*** Before the stable gets malevolated, right-clicking on the horse will [[{{Foreshadowing}} lead Flux to describe him as]] [[spoiler: "a pot of glue waiting to happen".]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}: Flux seems to be inspired by [[Franchise/SamAndMax Max]]. Both are small, loudmouthed creatures who are somewhat {{Heroic Comedic Sociopath}}s (Although Max is ''much'' more of a comedic sociopath than Flux). They even have similar-sounding voices, and Drew even calls Flux "little buddy" a few times, which is Sam's affectionate nickname for Max.

* ShoutOut: The game is very reminiscent of Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit, made even funnier when you recall who ChristopherLloyd played in that classic film.
