Added DiffLines:

* KillItWithWater: Averted. When Maebh and Caoimhe encounter the Blood Knight in the Dream World, Maebh tries [[MakingASplash casting a large stream of water]] on him [[ShoutOut in the style of]] [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Elsa]]... but because she's mostly been using her magic for fun instead of combat (she is only eight, after all), [[NoSell the spell doesn't harm the Blood Knight at all.]] To which he laughs and says with arrogant sarcasm "Ah, that was refreshing, thank you."


* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: During their first confrontation, Elizabeth uses the same insult on Michelle that Lilith said to Lily in ''Literature/BattleForTheAges''; she derisively refers to her as a “[[EvilCannotStandCute nauseatingly cute princess]].”

Added DiffLines:

* HealthyInHeaven: Demetrios refers to this when he confronts the mysterious man in the lion costume.
--> Oh yeah? And what are you going to do? Trigger the allergies I no longer have since I became a ghost?


* HypocriticalHumor: Elizabeth gets mad when Maebh calls her a "bug," even though she [[EvilGloating proudly]] described her [[OneWingedAngel demonic butterfly form]] to Michelle.

Added DiffLines:

* AlienKudzu: More like Demonic Kudzu. [[TheHedgeOfThorns Black vines armed with razor sharp thorns]] start growing all over the Dream World and then the real world, choking out all other life as they do so, as Mhithl'ithoth and his demons continue to grow stronger.


Added DiffLines:

* CasualDangerDialog: When Max and his friends arrive to help out the werewolves, he looks around the battlefield and smiles while saying "Well, looks like the party started without us." After Will kills one of the demons, he says in return "I'd say you and your friends are right on time."


* BigCreepyCrawlies: Some of [[BeeAfraid the hornets]] in Max's nightmare, Elizabeth [[OneWingedAngel turning into a giant demonic butterfly]], and in Julian's last nightmare, he fights a giant monster that's [[MixAndMatchCritters a combination of]] [[HorrorHunger a maggot and a leech]].

* DreamsVsNightmares: Esheia, the noble and kindhearted goddess of good dreams, vs Mhithl’ithoth, the demonic ruler of nightmares.

to:

* DreamsVsNightmares: The Champions of the Light and the Red Knights fight both to protect each other and Esheia, the noble and kindhearted goddess of good dreams, vs from being conquered and destroyed by Mhithl’ithoth, the demonic ruler of nightmares.


The year is 2152. Ten years have passed since [[Literature/ArsGoetia Astaroth]] [[Literature/BattleForTheAges and his demons attacked the Stone Cutters]], and in that time, there has been a great peace around the world. After all the victories over [[TheLegionsOfHell the demons]] and TheIlluminati by the Stone Cutters, the Champions of the Light and the Red Knights, the people of the Earth pretty much don’t even have much reason to have bad dreams anymore. However, [[TheDreaded a terrible]] [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils demon lord]], [[BigBad Mhithl’ithoth]], the ruler of nightmares, seeks to undo all of this and plunge the world into darkness and fear, paving the way for his [[{{Satan}} Dark Emperor]]. He invades the palace of [[BigGood Esheia]], the goddess of dreams, previously thought impenetrable thanks to the good thoughts of the Earth’s peoples the heroes’ efforts inspired. With her gone, the Dream World becomes horrifyingly corrupted, and thus nightmares start feeling more real than they should and waking up from them, while a relief, brings physical as well as spiritual pain. Some people are even trapped in sleep because of Mhithl’ithoth and his minions. And thanks to his machinations, some nightmare visions even [[WhenDimensionsCollide spill over into the real world]]. [[SaveBothWorlds Can the heroes defeat the demons in light and in sleep]], or will both worlds fall to [[TheEmpire the unholy empire of Pandemonium]]?

Added DiffLines:

* WeakerInTheRealWorld: Esheia must remain in the Dream World because not only does she create good dreams, she is powered and enlivened by them. If she stays in the real world for too long, she'll [[TakenForGranite turn to stone]].

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorAppeal: During the tree-planting on Arbor Day, Heather recalls Demetrios liking Arbor Day more than Earth Day when they were mortal.

* TheDreaded: Mhithl’ithoth easily causes this, up to and including King Zasedis and Queen Sastiana. As a matter of fact, Zasedis describes him as so powerful that not even his old friend and mentor, the ArchangelMichael, has ever defeated him (though he has come close a lot of times).
