Some spoilers may be unmarked.

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: The fandom has received one from an overzealous Axis Powers Hetalia fan. Her corresponding Tropes and character profile can be found here.
  • Fan Nickname: Might as well have its own page.
  • I Knew It!: Many fans correctly guessed the following from watching the trailers for each season:
    • Season 1: That Lele would die via electrocution.
      • Not from the trailer, but still, many assumed that the staff were evil, and lo and behold, they were proven correct in Episode 9-10.

    • Season 3: Matpat's resurrection would happen.
    • Also in Season 3: that Colleen would die at via some variation of the Iron Maiden.
      • Some fans also guessed correctly that Nikita and Matpat would both be survivors, given the zombies chasing them in one section of the trailer.
      • Also in Season 3: That the helpers, Mortimer and Calliope, would die.
    • A lot of fans speculated that Season 4 would be an All-Stars Season, given how the Season 3 finale ended. This was later confirmed by Joey when he released a teaser trailer for Season 4.
      • The Season 4 trailer also had people guessing that Colleen would be revived. They were right.
  • Novelization: A fanmade version can be read here.
  • Person as Verb: As always, Tumblr heavily contributes to this.
    • 'iJustine' refers to getting Buried Alive.
    • 'Gabbie' now stands for 'ripping one's heart out'.
  • Teasing Creator: Oh, God, Joey, from prior to Season 4, to the point that he toes the line of being a Trolling Creator.

  • Throw It In!: A majority of the series is improvised (courtesy of the guests), and some of the scripted characters end up ad-libbing in response to unexpected reactions from the guests.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Joey confirmed in Season 3, Episode 11 (the behind the scenes episode) that he initially invited Colleen Ballinger to star in Season 1 of Escape The Night, but the scheduling just never worked for her to show up in Escape The Night until Season 3.
    • It was also stated, during the cast reveal, that Lele ghosted them when they tried to get her to return for the Season. Shame. The fandom misses her Cloud Cuckoo Lander tendencies.

How well does it match the trope?
