* TearJerker: Meta example. The fact that Midway is dead + the factor of this game being fairly obscure to the general public = the fact that this game will likely never get a sequel or even a ''port''.

* GoddamnBats: Played obnoxiously straight. Also featured in the same vein as bats are maggots, spiders, floaty bug things, and LITERAL spider monkeys.

** Presumably, he was trying to get aboard [[BigBad Tökkentäkker's]] CoolAirship, since [[LoadBearingBoss killing him would destroy CarnEvil]]. Then again, it's still fair to say that he clearly has a few screws loose up there, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero as he unwittingly started up CarnEvil in the first place]], and the first thing he does when he gets out of that hell [[spoiler: [[IgnoredAesop is feeding Umlaut a new token]] ''[[OhNoNotAgain to do it all over again!!!]]'']]

* FridgeBrilliance: While the ending still ''is'' rather stupid (see CrossesTheLineTwice and WhatAnIdiot), it makes sense that an arcade shooter would have an ending with an in-game explanation to how the next player to pick up the controller can play the game.
** It makes sense that Umlaut is such a loud-mouthed {{Troll}}: He ''is'' TheJester, after all! And back in the Middle Ages, that's what jesters did: they made fun of everyone.
* FridgeHorror: Assuming that the plotline of [[spoiler:[=CarnEvil=] starting back up when the main character puts the token in Umlaut's mouth again]] is canon, does this mean that [[spoiler:the events of the game happen over and over... '''''forever?''''']]

* {{Fanon}}: Even though both players are male, fans tend to call the protagonist Jacob, and the player 2 character Lisa. The official website [[http://web.archive.org/web/20010405123820/http://www.carnevil.com/main.html never named them]], and no names are given [[http://www.arcade-museum.com/manuals-videogames/C/CarnEvil_2Player_Dedicated_25in_1640069101_Nov_1998.pdf in the manual either]]. It appears that the names came about when someone added them to the Wikipedia page in July 2007, and the fandom ran with them. In fanart, Jacob is depicted with a red jacket, a green t-shirt with blue jeans and carries a flashlight, while Lisa wears a blue [[BareYourMidriff crop-top jacket]], jeans and a purple-and-white hat.
