    Halloween: Sins of a Father 
  • Absurdly Spacious Sewer: Michael apparently lives in the sewers beneath Haddonfield.
  • Adult Fear: All over the place, but best exemplified when Captain Clance thinks about the many, many phone calls he received about whether or not it’s safe to have the kids go trick-or-treating with Michael Myers walking around.
  • Big Good: Tommy Doyle has effectively replaced Dr. Loomis and Laurie Strode as the leading authority on how to combat Michael Myers.
  • Class Trip: Steven's class is taking one from Dayton to Chicago, but on the way they're forced to stop in Haddonfield... where Michael is waiting for them.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Michael. He uses nails and glass to trap the class trip in an area where there's no cell service then blocks off the road. When his quarry gets too far to attack on foot, he resorts to throwing rocks.
  • Continuity Nod: Captain Clance remembers Michael Myers' attack on a reality show in Halloween: Resurrection.
  • Disney Death: Jeff apparently falls to his death while trying to escape Michael. Tommy and Captain Clance find him later, injured but alive.
  • Failed a Spot Check: Michael apparently wasn't aware that John Tate was Laurie Strode/Keri Tate's son when he attacked them.
  • The Ghost: John Tate.
  • If You Kill Him, You Will Be Just Like Him: Steven grabs Michael's knife and gets centimeters away from stabbing him, but refuses.
    "I thought I could do this. But if I do, will I end up like you?"
  • Implacable Man: Michael again. He takes blunt force trauma, multiple stab wounds, gets the tendons of his leg cut, gets shot four times in the head at point-blank range, and survives to kill again.
  • Improbable Infant Survival: Of those on Steven's class trip, all the kids survive while four adults (three of which were teachers) are killed by Michael.
  • Improvised Weapon: Michael uses glass and nails to stop the buses, then creates a road block. When the fleeing students get too far from him, he resorts to throwing rocks.
  • Parental Substitute: Tommy and Kara have raised Steven as their own son.
  • Patchwork Fic: The fanfic combines aspects of the Thorn trilogy (Jamie and Steven Lloyd) and the H20 timeline (John Tate, Laurie Strode's death in Halloween: Resurrection and Michael's subsequent attack on Dangertainment filming in the Myers house).
  • Rasputinian Death: The bus driver. He gets his leg broken, Michael smashes his head with a piece of cement, then rips his jaw out.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Jamie Lloyd and John Tate were Laurie Strode's children from separate continuities. Here, they are twins.
  • Significant Reference Date: Twice over; it's 13 years after Steven's birth in Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers and 30 years after the original film.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: The unmasked Michael has light hair, brown eyes and prominent cheekbones like Steven.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Mr. Carpenter apparently doesn't recognize Michael's Iconic Outfit of a jumpsuit and White Mask of Doom, and immediately thinks he's a regular maintenance worker. That earns him a Slashed Throat.
  • Wham Shot: Michael takes off his mask and Steven sees their resemblance.
  • Where It All Began: Michael kidnaps Steven and takes him to the old Myers house.
