* LesYay: Fairly prevalent in the book, particularly on Galinda's side. Note the part where she catches her breath as she realises how beautiful Elphaba is, and that their relationship seems to have been the most meaningful one in Galinda's life. Arguable interpretation. Although she does dwell on how nervous Elphie makes her feel, and remembers sharing a bed with her. It should be noted that the only thing Glinda could remember about the Emerald City trip was that they shared a bed.

** Some of Idina Menzel's successors in the role have their [[FanDumb rabid, overly-defensive fans]] as well. Let's just say "Who's the best Elphaba?" is about as dangerous a question as "[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 Mike or Joel?]]".

* HilariousInHindsight: At one point in the book, Elphaba walks onto the water and it freezes beneath her feet so that she doesn't fall in and melt. That should remind you that Idina Menzel was the first Elphaba, and her ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' character, Elsa, crosses a fjord by doing the same thing. Not to mention the throwaway line from Glinda to Elphaba in Act II, "They're just shoes! ''Let it go!'')

* TheScrappy: Liir gets a lot of flak for [[ReplacementScrappy not being as compelling a character as Elphaba]] and having a lot of CommonMarySueTraits.

* TakeThat: That bit about [[UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan 'Great Communicators']] not having brains or knowledge but succeeding because they're popular...

* WordOfGay: Maguire has stated that "something" was going on between Elphaba and Glinda, but he [[ShrugOfGod doesn't specify what]].

** Elphaba has black hair and green skin. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen earliest One of the earliest concept designs]] depicted Elsa as having [[http://www.imgur.com/a/ea2Zt black hair and blue skin.]] When you get right down to it, Elsa can be summed up as "Elphaba as AnIcePerson, and no LoveInterest or FaceHeelTurn".

** Made especially ironic when a Carrie Underwood clip show was put on Website/YouTube...set to Idina Menzel's studio recording of "Defying Gravity." The comments page exploded with Idina fans' rage that a pop singer was covering the song. As with all musicals, everyone will have their favorite portrayal of a given character.
