- Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The scene at the end of Chapter 17, when the Spanish Inquisition appears for a paragraph. A shout out to Monty Python's Flying Circus, judging by all the other references to the same show. That whole sequence with Pip is also this.
- Les Yay: Most of the original film's characters were bi, and the main character is clearly a lesbian. Reviewers really liked the ship Fay/Magenta (to the point they made hilarious nickname, see below), though Fay marries another Original Character, Lady Flora, in the end.
- Portmanteau Couple Name: Reviewers shipping Original Character Fay and The Rocky Horror Picture Show character Magenta coined the bizarre nickname "Faygenta."
