* TheBabyTrap: Referenced in her review of ''Film/InterviewWithAVampire'', as she tells Lestat that vamping Claudia to keep Louie around was a naughty idea.

* ShippingGoggles: InUniverse. While she still coos over the HasTwoDaddies aspect of ''Film/InterviewWithAVampire'', she firmly denies any HomoeroticSubtext other than that. However, this was probably a reference to the fact that Anne Rice vampires CantHaveSexEver, rather than denying that the subtext is there.

* TheCameo: Not counting WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick and her friends/[[WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows boyfriend]], Creator/AllisonPregler (whom the Maven claims is a werewolf), [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] (both dressed as Franken Berry, and attracted by the fact that ''30 Days of Night'' was a comic), and [[spoiler: [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Oancitizen]] ([[EvenTheGuysWantHim to fawn over a]] WillSmith scrapbook).]] The Maven also appears in one of WebVideo/{{Welshy}}'s videos to ask for a CrossOver. She also appears in [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]]'s review of ''Film/BladeTrinity'' where she reviews the movie with him... only to flee at the point where Dracula/Drake kills some goths.

* OrSoIHeard: Todd said that NuMetal fans probably moved into Music/FallOutBoy. Maven agrees before going "...not that I would know that".

** In the ''Film/OnceBitten'' episode she briefly touches on the VampireVannabe...not that she has any experience with that.



* UnbuiltTrope: {{Discussed}} in her Top Ten Female Vampires list: Carmilla from ''Film/TheVampireLovers'' is a complex and interesting character, but the film fetishizes her status as a LesbianVampire, which helped lead to future female vampires being portrayed little more than murderous sex fiends.

Also on the list is Countess Marya Zaleska from ''Film/DraculasDaughter,'' a well-rounded and less sexualized character from all the way back in 1936.

* DamnedByAFoolsPraise: In her FrightNight review, she states that nerds are cool. She knows, because her mom told her so.



* LostAesop: Maven can't tell whether ''Hotel Transylvania 2'' humans are the "norm" and monsters are the "other," or whether monsters are the privileged elite and humans are the undesirable "other," and since it keeps flip-flopping so much over whether Denis would be part of the shunned minority if he was a human or a vampire, by the time he's revealed to be [[spoiler:fully vampire]] she has no idea what the audience is supposed to take away from it.

** Happens again for TheEighties film OnceBitten. The film is sometimes VirginShaming the male lead (played by Creator/JimCarrey) for being such a ''loser'' that he can't get ''laid'', but somtimes SlutShaming and "punishing" him for trying to lose his virginity with a sexy vampire lady. So when movie's conflict is resolved by [[spoiler: Creator/JimCarrey and his [[LetsWaitAWhile formerly reluctant]] [[AllWomenArePrudes girlfriend]] doing it]], Maven has no idea what to take away from it.
-->'''Maven:''' ''Which is it'', movie? Are you sex-positive or not?!

** In the "Film/MonsterMash" episode, Elisa's real life husband PawDugan is punched by her while dressed as a mummy (in revenge to [[Film/TheMummysHand The Mummy]] replacing Literature/ThePhantomOfTheOpera in an Ride/UniversalStudios [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beetlejuice%27s_Rock_and_Roll_Graveyard_Revue ride]]), and the Maven tries to do a monster gathering of her own. Along with Maven, there is [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Moarte]], Creator/MaraWilson (the Chick\Critic have shown her as an EldritchAbomination), Oancitizen ("Weresnail"), and Todd ("because he's creepy"), with the Nostalgia Critic trying to enter as [[WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee he died once]], so in a way he's a zombie.

* DifferentForGirls: She's surprised to learn that ''MonsterHigh'''s [[{{Franchise/Frankenstein}} Frankie Stein]] is the main character while [[{{Dracula}} Draculaura]] is a side character, since the vampire is ''always'' the central character in a MonsterMash. She then wonders if their gender has anything to do with it, since a male Frankenstein-equivalent would most certainly be a [[BumblingSidekick bumbling]] [[TheBigGuy oaf]] rather than a CuteClumsyGirl, while a male Dracula-equivalent would ''of course'' be [[DiabolicalMastermind slick and formidable]] instead of TheDitz.

She takes personal umbrage with [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop a family film glorifying]] a elitist bigot of a grandpa who undermines his daughter's parenting and pushes his grandson to be what ''he'' wants him to be [[spoiler:and gets rewarded for it at the end.]]

* BrokenAesop: [[invoked]] Maven suspects the moral of the first ''HotelTransylvania'' is "don't be controlling and don't be racist," but feels it comes across more as "being controlling isn't ''that'' bad as long as you're nice about it, and racism is ''over!''"
** Maven also has this view of ''HotelTransylvania2'', since [[spoiler: [[AdamSandler Dracula]] spends the whole film aggressively pushing for his grandson to [[OurVampiresAreDifferent be a vampire]] and never really learns to grow out of it, but then ''after'' he gets his wish he has the gall to say Denis is [[JustTheWayYouAre "perfect no matter what.]]"]]
