- Esoteric Happy Ending: A fairly well-known one. Everyone died and went to Heaven, er, Narnia. But not Susan, because since she no longer believed in Narnia, she didn't join them on the journey where they all died. C.S. Lewis stated in a letter that she could get to Narnia "in her own time." Apparently this was actually a Sequel Hook.
- Ho Yay: There are many yay-inducing moments between Tirian and Jewel the Unicorn, but this one takes the cake:
"Kiss me, Jewel," he said. "For certainly this is our last night on earth. And if ever I offended against you in any matter great or small, forgive me now.""Dear King," said the Unicorn, "I could almost wish you had, so that I might forgive it. Farewell. We have known great joys together. If Aslan gave me my choice I would choose no other life than the life I have had and no other death than the one we go to."
- Nightmare Fuel : The descriptions of Tash. If you've heard Patrick Stewart's audiobook recording, the character voice Stewart uses for Tash's words gives the monster a whole new dimension of terrifying.
