Trivia: Paranatural
  • Fan Nickname: Since the names of people and things are not always revealed right away, the fandom has taken to making their own, often involving as many puns as possible:
    • "Time snake" for Max's spirit. When it was discovered that the name wasn't really accurate (all spirits "stop time" to commune with their human hosts), Zack himself offered Scrapdragon as a replacement.
    • "Montezeusma" for Isaac's spirit.
    • Mr. Splendiferous, Splendid, Stupendid and all variations thereof for Mr. Spender.
    • "Forge" or "Manvil" for the anvil-headed knight spirit. The former turns out to be canon.
    • The black dog spirits are known by a number of variants of "pixhellhound."
    • The giant insect with a zipper down its belly which saved Max from falling off the Ghost Train has been dubbed "The Fly."
    • "BERG" for Broken Evil Riddle God, the mysterious spirit secretly possessing Max alongside Scrapdragon.
  • Similarly Named Works: There's also a show on National Geographic titled Paranatural.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • A relatively minor example, as far as this trope goes, but chapter 2 was split into multiple chapters, with former chapter 2 elements appearing as far ahead as chapter 4, instead of being one very long installment.
    • According to Zack, Isaac's tool was originally a car.
