- Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The illustration of the manticore on the title pages of the "Mysterious Animals" chapter. Manticores are never even mentioned in the chapter itself.
- Heartwarming Moments: The "Little People" chapter mentions that goblins, while vicious pranksters towards most people, like children and give good children presents.
- Paranoia Fuel: The book presents everything in its pages as real. This can easily lead to one imagining that all the monsters described could be lurking all around them.
