* AmbiguouslyBrown: Both Alex and her brother Michael have light brown skin, and from the flashbacks we see, naturally brown hair. Alex speaks Spanish at one point in exasperation but that's all we get.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: Oxenfree is short for "olly olly oxen free", which is a catchphrase used during children's games. [[spoiler:The ghosts themselves have the mentality of children due to being stuck in an alternate dimension for a long time and try to play games like hangman and I Spy with the protagonists as a means of tormenting them.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MortonsFork: The two "perfect" endings exist on opposite ends of the fork. [[spoiler:Alex can save Michael but be trapped in the time loop forever, or she can save (a version of) herself from the time loop, but Michael remains dead in that timeline. There is no third option where Alex escapes the loop with Michael alive as well.]]


* LetsSplitUpGang: Everyone gets blasted to various points across Edwards Island after Alex opens the rift and the first half of the game is about getting the group back together safely. ''However'', instances where all five character are together in one place for any length of time are fleeting and usually end in either a "let's split up" moment or [[spoiler:some supernatural chicanery tearing them all apart again]].
