  • Taking the Bullet: When Ichabod was chosen for the experiment, his mother jumped in front of him when the machine fired at him, causing her to collapse, releasing spirit-like creatures into the world.
  • Trash Landing: When Ichabod was shot out of the lab due to the explosion, he landed in a garbage dump, where he first met Barnaby.
  • Unreliable Narrator: When Ichabod tells about he day he was separated from his family, when he is placed in a restraint to be experimented on, he claims that he was happy cause he was wearing his first collar. When Orion remembers the events, it shows that Ichabod was clearly scared about what was happening.
  • Walk on Water: Ichabod paddles like a motorboat to take Barnaby to dry land.
