  • Awesome Art: A lot of the illustrations fall into this. Obviously, you've got Bogleech's own Ugly Cute style, but most of the guest artist submissions don't look half-bad either, from Biomechanicalmush's cartoony drawings that resemble something from The Golden Age of Animation, to Revereche's nightmarishly surreal Stephen Gammell-esque artwork.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Mr. Oogle from Squid's dream is one of the most popular monsters, being illustrated no less than four times by different people.

  • Narm Charm: Many dreams feature concepts that should be nonsensical, but still end up being terrifying anyway, such as the woman with a prehensile extendable nose.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Given that they originated from literal nightmares, it's to be expected a lot of them are quite disturbing.
  • Ugly Cute: Bogleech finds Bobipineman's drawing of Tithe, banker of death, to be surprisingly adorable, despite being described as a “hideous half-bird, half-bat monster”.
    • He also feels this way about Wheezy, a strange and dangerous, but still adorable, coughing lightbulb-shaped creature that appears in an in-dream Looney Tunes cartoon.
  • The Woobie: Poor Worm Man. He's just an exchange student with a skin condition he's really sensitive about!
