* DownerEnding: Unlike other coming-of-age films where the guy gets the girl and everyone lives happily ever after, the film ends on a down note for the main protagonists. [[spoiler:Enid loses her scholarship and rides out of town on a bus, her fate unknown as the film draws to a close. Seymour is receiving therapy, mentally and physically broken after the events of the summer. And though Enid and Rebecca seem to patch up their differences before the former leaves town, it's clear that there is still some estrangement, that they have become completely different people after high school.]]

* SpiritualAdaptation: ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' was pretty much ''Ghost World: [[RecycledTheSeries The Animated Series]]''... and in turn, the film adaptation of ''Ghost World'' is pretty much ''Daria: TheMovie''.

* SpiritualLicensee: May be the closest thing we'll get to a live-action ''{{Daria}}'' movie. Funny, because the comic predates ''Daria'' by several years.

* {{The Woobie}}: Seymour's had it pretty rough. He does have an aggressive side however, which sometimes leads to trouble.

* AdaptationDisplacement: At the time, the film adaptation overshadowed the graphic novel, and the comic became more famous for having been made into a film (people were still working out that non-superhero comics even existed). Since then the graphic novel has become an artform equally as visible as the prose novel, and Ghost World remains a defining work in the medium. The film Ghost World has in hindsight become a minor (but nonetheless highly regarded) work in the 90s indie boom, and more famous for its link to the novel than vice-versa.

** Same goes for the comic, really. Enid's supposed to be kind of plain, but the way she's drawn is incredibly [[MoeMoe d'aww-inducing]], particularily the rare occasions WhenSheSmiles.

***Becky in the film is not meant to be homely--several guys are clearly attracted to her.
