- Complete Monster: Queen Auriana is an evil witch and the ruler of her domain. Auriana abducts children and transforms them into creatures known as harpies note to serve as her slaves, seeking to extend her rule throughout her realm. The children themselves live in constant fear of Auriana, being forced to kidnap more children to serve her. Those who fail are banished to the Cavern of Eternal Ice, where they will surely freeze to death. When one of the harpies, Allegra, fails to capture Jack, Auriana exiles her to the ice caverns, taking the time to taunt her for not being human. She then captures Jack's friends and attempts to force them to watch as Jack and Allegra freeze to death in the ice caverns. When Jack rescues Allegra, Auriana destroys the caverns and brutally attacks the two children as they attempt to flee, nearly killing them. When her globe, the source of her powers, is destroyed, Auriana attempts to blow up the castle with everyone inside it, just to spite Jack.
- Jerkass Woobie: Harvey and Allegra qualify - you almost feel sorry for Allegra when she gets sent to the Cavern of Eternal Ice.
- Memetic Mutation: INTO THE MACHINE! INTO THE MACHINE! INTO THE MACHINE!
- Nightmare Fuel:
- Again, INTO THE MACHINE! INTO THE MACHINE!
- Big Fancy Castle where Everything Trying to Kill You? That's pretty scary. Big Fancy Castle where not only is Everything Trying to Kill You, but having a lively discussion on exactly how to eat you and your friends, whilst you're standing right next to them? That is scary.
YMMV / Jack and the Witch
