* CosmicHorrorStory: The Mysterious Stranger creates a miniature civilization out of clay figures and bestows life on them only so that he can snatch it away again. He points out that he does not do this out of malice, as he has no concept of human morality.

Added DiffLines:

* WomenAreWiser: Adam didnt really seem to grasp the facts of life until around middle-age or so. In fact, during Cain and Abels childhoods, he operated under the assumption that they were some odd breed of fish, and later, bear. In Eve's words; "He is self-educated, and really knows a multidude of things. But none of them are true".
** Unusual for this story, Adam doesnt actually eat the Apple of Eden until after the Fall and loss of the Garden. If Eve hadnt offered him the Fruit of Knowledge, he'd likely have starved to death in the wasteland.

Added DiffLines:

** The movie itself has Twain reaching the comet and "dying" as he hoped... but the two halves of his personality - the Light and the Dark - are able to reconcile and merge before doing so, and Twain becomes one with Halley's Comet as well. Taken together with Eve and Adam's ending, it's implied he's with his lost wife and in Eden with her.

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Satan is either this or AboveGoodAndEvil, depending on how you interpret his comment that "I can do no evil, for I do not know what it is."

First of all, discard any historical knowledge you might have of Samuel Clemens, because in this world, he doesn't exist. But his ''nom de plume,'' MarkTwain, is real, and so are Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, and Becky Thatcher. [[CelebrityParadox Yeah, we know. Just roll with it.]] In this world, Mark Twain also has a [[CoolAirship Cool]] {{Steampunk}} [[CoolAirship Airship]], which he intends to ride into outer space to chase Halley's comet. Tom, Huck, and Becky catch word of his balloon and sneak onboard, joining Mr. Twain on a journey beyond the stratosphere to chase the comet. How do they pass time onboard the airship? By telling (and living) stories, of course. Famous Mark Twain stories. Like ''Literature/TheAdventuresOfTomSawyer.'' ([[FridgeLogic We know. Again.]]) And ''The Diary of Adam and Eve.'' And ''Literature/TheMysteriousStranger.''

This 1985 movie is known for being absolutely ''gorgeously'' rendered in {{Claymation}}, and for being creepy as hell. [[{{Satan}} Literally.]] It's sometimes considered a "[[AnimationAgeGhetto children's movie]]," but this [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids isn't strictly the case]] -- it's probably too scary for some kids, but anyone who likes animation will probably enjoy the lush visuals. All in all, it's a fascinating and loving {{Deconstruction}} of the man and a number of his stories -- particularly his later ones which caused many to label him a NietzscheWannabe.
