* LiteralMetaphor:
** Because the magic notebook takes metaphors too literally, it leads to things like characaters literally falling apart because they're "broken up".
** Gumball says that "this has Sarah written all over it", then points to Sarah's signature on one of the original characters.



* {{Tulpa}}: Sarah's writing creates several new people (some of whom are heavily-altered versions of existing characters). She has a rather [[BlackComedy morbidly comical]] [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman willingness to destroy them]] just to get things back to normal.

* BlackComedy:
** The police who rummage through the back of the Awesome Store suffer such fates as being disintegrated by lightning and [[BodySnatcher having their body stolen by a]] DemonicDummy.
** Some of the notebooks' overly-literal effects are horrifying (Larry and Mr. Small "couldn't look at each other" and get {{Eyeless Face}}s, Alan's "chiseled features" are achieved by ''[[FacialHorror chipping his face away like rock]]'') and even lethal (Larry being "destroyed" by a breakup, Tina and Jamie [[BlackComedyCannibalism eating Bobert]] because of a missing comma), but still part of the same HurricaneOfPuns.
** Sarah tries to reverse the notebook [[NoOntologicalInertia by destroying its pages]], but that just results in the humanized, adult version of Darwin she made being mutilated and in severe pain (but vocally still alive).
* NotBrainwashed: As the police are breaking down the door, Gumball tries to use the notebook to stop them. Cut to the donut and coffee cup police officer looking at each other with CrushFilter and suddenly falling in love as Sarah made happen repeatedly. Cut back to Gumball explaining that he hasn't written anything yet.
