Soulkeeper provides examples of:
- Arc Words: "Do you believe in the power of the human soul?"
- Antichrist: Simon Magus.
- Back from the Dead: due to the Artifact of Doom, one of the heroes reincarnates as a dog...who just happens to be owned by his friend's dream girl
- Gag Penis: A friend of the main characters has one, which is repeatedly described as "perfect"
- Grand Theft Me: An entire cult is made up of formerly damned souls now inhabiting the bodies of the living in order to experience earthly pleasures. Eventually one of the main characters is threatened with having his body stolen by the demonic leader, Simon Magus, who shoots himself in the head in order to die and allow his soul to possess another.
- Horny Devils: There is a brothel full of these. Explained as damned souls in prostitute bodies, they otherwise appear to embody all the stereotypical succubus traits, and even transform into large demonic forms at various points.
