* 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 [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Elsa]] crosses a fjord by doing the same thing.

** It's very clear that Maguire [[ShownTheirWork did the homework]], but it took Baum and made it a WorldOfJerkass with practically every character being an idiot, a vicious schemer, a callous jerk, or all the above.

* AwardSnub: It lost the Best Musical Tony to ''Theatre/AvenueQ'', which doesn't seem to have had as much longevity. At least over a decade later, Idina Menzel ended up working with the composer of ''Theatre/AvenueQ'' on [[Disney/{{Frozen}} a certain world-renowned Disney film]] which has a ''hugely'' popular song that is what Defying Gravity has been for Wicked (and won Best Original Song at the Oscars to boot).

* HilariousInHindsight: There's a lot of stuff about Elphaba that becomes this thanks to the release of ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', given that Creator/IdinaMenzel was the original Elphaba and also the voice of Elsa: ** In ''Wicked'', Elphaba is a misunderstood older sibling, has magical powers, has a dramatic IAmBecomingSong ("Defying Gravity"), and stars alongside a blonde-haired actress whose first name is [[Creator/KristinChenoweth Kristin]]. In ''Frozen'', Elsa is a misunderstood older sibling, [[AnIcePerson has magical powers]], has a dramatic IAmBecomingSong ("Let it Go"), and starring alongside a blonde-haired actress whose first name is [[Creator/KristenBell Kristen]]. [[WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles Coincidence?]] Well, maybe, but that doesn't stop it from being both hilarious and awesome.

** 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, sans LoveInterest and FaceHeelTurn".
