* {{World Of|Badass}} RetiredBadass: With some RetiredMonster's and their ilk for good measure. So don't let the FantasticComedy exterior fool you almost all characters are {{badass}} in some way, it's just that their story ended... and also for their (mis)fortune [[FinaglesLaw The Fail Field]] is not generous with the cool allowance, but almost '''everybody''' can pull a LetsGetDangerous if needed.

* LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain: [[WordOfGod Word of Ashe]] that this is the karaoke night for the main cast and nobody brought it up yet (but Jareth was shown to have [[EmbarrassingOldPhoto pictures]] of it). Also the Amalthea incident for Lír. The third Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean movie and his [[spoiler: canonical death]] for James.

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: The unnamed (and hidden, Tony Stark used the place to test his improbable GPS) university town where the story takes place. We only know that you can watch the entire Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean trilogy on the plane from England (Mrs. N. did it), it's [[OffToSeeTheWizard not in Kansas]], far from any larger body of water (the duck pond is the biggest) and winter can begin pretty abruptly around it.

* TheFourLoves: The primary motivation of most characters (not Jadis' but she is the exception not the rule). Best seen in the case of Jareth because he sucks in showing it but still tries [[StopHelpingMe exceptionally hard]].

* {{Postmodernism}}: MassiveMultiplayerCrossover, MetaFic with MediumAwareness bordering on NoFourthWall where {{All Stories Are Real|Somewhere}} and also [[FictionIdentityPostulate Fiction]] not to mention {{Recursive|Reality}} running on ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve (and to get that PanderingToTheBase and general {{Fanservice}}) and the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality with an AuthorAvatar and [[LampshadeHanging enough lampshades to make hard to see the sun]] where you are encouraged to think EverybodyIsJesusInPurgatory. [[MindScrew Are you dizzy yet]]?

* ExtranormalInstitute: The [[PatronSaint St. Jude]] University where 3/4 of the main cast works. Plus others like [[TheLordOfTheRings Gandalf]], [[IndianaJones Dr. Jones]], [[Series/{{House}} Dr. House]], and the [[Series/DoctorWho tenth Doctor]].

* TheBechdelTest: Considering how little interaction between the female characters is on panel it's a miracle but by the loose definition ("it's okay to mention a man or men so long as they're not the primary subject of the conversation") it passes. Like Christine and Tracy talking about university stuff or Sarah, Christine and Shilo about music. And now even have a reference [[http://asherhyder.deviantart.com/art/Roommates-304-Bechdel-356375590 here]].
* CanonWelding: OK. Fanon Welding but still. In this world there is a continuity between Literature/TheHobbit the Literature/TheErlKing and {{Film/Labyrinth}} (Literature/TheDresdenFiles is also connected).

* CrossoverCosmology: All stories exist as fiction and as real past for the characters[[note]](probably because [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve people remember/believe]])[[/note]], myths and legends are stories too, if we make the connection: They also really exist... for someone [[TheMultiverse somewhere]]. And can drop by to visit. Example when Jareth hosted TheWildHunt both [[NorseMythology Odin]], the [[Literature/TheErlking Elkönig]] and KingArthur attended.
