* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Though the snakes appear throughout the movie, there's few instances where they're directly achnoledged, and there's very little explanation on them. They simply appear as a Macguffin. But how and why, and what are they? Given the end of the film, they're almost certainly some kind of parasite. They're also seemingly never fully rendered in full-3d unless out of convenience.

On his first night on the job, Mune accidentally breaks the tethers holding onto the moon, and in the chaos that ensues, Necross, Lord of the Underworld, sees the perfect time to strike. He [[GreenEyedMonster poisons Leeyoon's mind with jealousy]] and steals the sun from Sohone while Leeyoon distracts him. When the world is plunged into eternal night, Mune decides to set right what he's done wrong and recover the sun from Necross. He [[TeethClenchedTeamwork reluctantly teams up with Sohone]] to travel into the underworld. The two are joined in their journey by Glim, a girl made of wax who lives in neither day nor night, and who is a ''huge'' history buff -- which is good for them, since neither Mune nor Sahone knows much of the lore of their world. Together, they must save the sun and moon before their world erupts into complete chaos.

* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: This seems to be what happens when Yule, the old Guardian of the Moon, passes his torch onto Mune -- he morphs into a kind of flower that becomes one with the Moon Titan.
* BaseOnWheels: The sun and moon are ferried around on the backs of giant Titans, which are both creatures and living temples to the celestial bodies they protect.
* BioluminescenceIsCool:
** A lot of the fauna and flora of the night sight are bioluminescent, including the Moon Titan, adding to the eerie beauty of the place. [[spoiler:When the light of the sun and moon dwindle, so is the inhabitants' bioluminescence, plunging the world in darkness.]]
** Phospho and his tentacled pet too, as they are based upon creatures of the abysses. Although Phospho can operate on the surface too.

* ForgingScene: After the prologue, Sohone's introduction is a scene of him forging a harpoon. Note that he doesn't hammer it into shape with any tool, but with his bare fist.



* HeliumSpeech: When about to dive in the waters of the Big Blue Hole, Mune picks up some glowing fungus that he describes as rich in oxygen, and that will allow them to breathe underwater. However, as a prank the first batch he shows to Sohone are actually rich in helium, and when the big guy promptly eats one, his voice gets all squeaky.



* LightAndMirrorsPuzzle: Glim sets up a series of mirrors in her own room, so that the light of the morning sun would unfreeze her first, before her father who stayed downstairs, so that he can't stop her going out to see the succession ceremony.



* MinionWithAnFInEvil: The smaller of Necross's two imp minions loves flowers and nature. [[spoiler:In the end, he becomes a nature spirit.]]

* PullingThemselvesTogether:
** Glim and her father might be made of fragile wax, but they can reassemble missing bits just by heating them and sticking them back. As demonstrated when Glim's father accidentally rips off her arm, and she just sounds annoyed, asking in a deadpan voice to give it back, before putting it in place.
** The assistant to the Guardian of the Sun is a RockMonster made of several stone slabs simply stacked together and holding thanks to gravity. It just takes a push or a trip to disassemble him completely into disparate pieces, but he can just will himself back into shape. It happens several times in the movie, and he implies that he's very much used to it.



* RockMonster:
** Sohone is one, though he appears to be made of a smooth, jasper- or sardonyx-like material instead of solid rock.
** Krrrack is also one of these, as are his assistant several of the other people of the day.

* WallCrawl: Mune, and certainly the rest of his species, are excellent climbers, sharing traits with squirrel and/or monkeys. Mune can climb to the head of the huge Moon Titan in almost no time, and even dangle upside-down just with his feet.
