* AntiMagic: The exact details haven't been explained, but Fiona's universe, which is equivalent to ours, is non-magical. Additionally, it has been stated that any magic imported from the Supernormal Step universe cannot survive there. However, portals generated from the Supernormal universe are still able to reach over and grab things, and there also appears to be a few other exceptions. Whatever prevents magic from surviving in Fiona's universe ultimately starts breaking down when she finally manages to return.

* TheMagicComesBack: Fiona's native universe is equivalent to our own and starts out largely non-magical, with most people not believing such a thing exists. According to one of TheMenInBlack it once was very real and still is to a degree, but it is now tucked away. It is possible for portals from the Supernormal Step universe to connect to it and even grab things, but it has been stated that magic cannot survive there for long. This is later revealed to be due to the efforts of a [[spoiler:RealityWarper witch, who has been keeping magic suppressed]]. However, when Fiona and her companions finally return home from the Supernormal universe via a newly made portal, their presence causes magic to start flooding from the Supernormalverse into her world, causing increasing amounts of chaos as it starts getting empowered by [[EmotionalPowers everyone's confidence]].

* RealityIsOutToLunch: When magic surges into Fiona's largely non-magical universe, it results in events far more bizarre than anything in even the Supernormal Step universe, such as people spontaneously turning into monsters then rioting and Fiona getting stuck inside a giant, otherworldly, haunted pinball machine. A mysterious witch states that this is because their world no longer knows how to handle magic when in the hands amateurs, and that the resulting reality bending phenomena puts all of existence at stake.

* WorldOfSymbolism: When magic is introduced to Fiona's previously non-magical world, it runs out of control and causes RealityIsOutToLunch. Displays of confidence start resulting in "events", generating alternate realities filled with symbolism related to the confident person's psychological wounds.

* PowerLimiter: There is normally a hard limit on how powerful it is possible for any spellcaster to be. [[spoiler:Long ago, no such limit existed, and the overuse of magic started to risk TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. To prevent this, Myrrine Whalen created a magical container and separated everything magical in the world into a new world of its own. The container prevented the main world from having magic at all anymore, and limited the potential of those in the magical one to a safe level. Mr. Kite works around this by summoning people from the main world into the magical one since the limiter has no effect on them.]]



* PurpleIsPowerful: Every caster has a signature color to their magic. Two of these colors include blue and red, but the colors never mix. Purple magic is considered to be legendary and nearly unheard of. But [[spoiler:Mr. Kite and Myrrine Whalen]] both have this as their color.

[[spoiler:Myrrine casted a world spanning spell to keep magic under control. One of its effects was to make the magical world blind to purple magic like her own to ensure they never learn the truth and break free.]]



* SummonEverymanHero: Appears to be Jim, Fiona, and [[spoiler:Mr.Henderson]]'s situation, though in Jim's case, it would be closer to Everyman Villain. All 3 of them were nobodies summoned from a magic-less world equivalent to ours into the fantastic world of Supernormal Step. There is normally a hard limit to how powerful a spellcaster can be. Jim and [[spoiler:Mr. Henderson]] have both proven to be exceptions to that rule, and it is implied that Fiona has the same potential. All 3 of them are implied to have been summoned as part of a mysterious being's master plan, with Fiona and [[spoiler:Mr. Henderson]] being intended as heroes.

* AlternateUniverse: ''Supernormal Step'' takes place on an AU Earth with magic and fantasy creatures. However, Earth is virtually unrecognizable--Fiona only figures it out when she sees a map that looks like America.

[[spoiler:In truth, Fiona's world and the Supernormal Step universe were once one and the same. A powerful witch separated the magical version from the main universe to prevent magic from going out of control and causing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.]]

* TheMagicGoesAway: Part of the backstory of Fiona's homeworld. [[spoiler:Magic was once a normal part of her world, but overuse of it resulted in the creation of rifts which started to eat the world away. Myrrine Whalen's solution was to separate everything magic had touched away from it into a pocket dimension, which would become the Supernormal Step universe]].



* TheMasquerade: In Fiona's native world, magic is largely believed to be fictitious, but there is a government agency charged with investigating it. Though they ''know'' magic to be real, they are limited to the memories of eye-witnesses since all actual evidence just mysteriously vanishes. They only have theories as to why, but Agent Matsuoka personally suspects that it is a deliberate effort by some sort of god-like being. [[spoiler:Said god-like being turns out to be a witch named Myrrine Whalen, who has been preventing magic from manifesting for countless ages.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BlackBox: The book, Supernormal Step, describes how to create a magical machine that can conjure sandwiches. An engineer who built one says that the blueprints make no scientific sense and he cannot figure out how it works. [[spoiler:When he makes one with a window, allowing him to see how the sandwiches are created, he sees a magic purple hand plop a sandwich into the box, implying that the machine is actually borrowing Mr. Kite's magic.]]

* TheMagicComesBack: Fiona's native universe is equivalent to our own and starts out largely non-magical, with most people not believing such a thing exists. According to one of TheMenInBlack it once was very real and still is to a degree, but it is now tucked away. It is possible for portals from the Supernormal Step universe to connect to it and even grab things, but it has been stated that magic cannot survive there for long. However, when Fiona and her companions finally return home from the Supernormal universe via a newly made portal, magic starts flooding into her world, causing increasing amounts of chaos as it starts getting empowered by [[EmotionalPowers everyone's confidence]].

* RealityIsOutToLunch: When magic surges into Fiona's previously non-magical universe, it results in events far more bizarre than anything in even the Supernormal Step universe, such as people spontaneously turning into monsters then rioting and Fiona getting stuck inside a giant, otherworldly, haunted pinball machine. A mysterious witch states that this is the result of a being from a pocket dimension leaving to another universe, and that the resulting reality bending phenomena puts all of existence at stake.
