* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Given how open the meanings of ''anything'' in the play are left, almost ''any'' interpretation of anything in the play can fall under this trope.
** Pozzo is actually Lucky's slave,
** the messenger boy is Godot,
** Pozzo is Godot,
** ''Lucky'' is Godot, and
** there never was a Godot.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Lucky's monologue, "Think".
* EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory: Despite many critics' interpretations, Godot is not shorthand for God. Others theorize that the play represents a kind of Hell or purgatory.
* ItWasHisSled: Godot never comes.
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: Lucky's "think" being a major offender here.
** The play itself counts as this. Beckett's theater work became even ''more'' abstract as he went on.
* TheWoobie: Poor, poor Lucky...
** Arguably, everybody (except perhaps for Pozzo) in the play.
** Or, even more arguably, perhaps poor old Pozzo as well.
** Out of the main two (Didi and Gogo) Estragon seems to be slightly more of a Woobie, mainly because he also routinely gets beaten by some unseen gang.
