- Awesome Music: Because their sound is multi-layered and orchestral, they tend towards this on a lot of their songs. Special note goes to "The Valley (Reprise)", "The Lament of Eustace Scrubb," "Exeunt," and "Dear Wormwood."
- Doing It for the Art: For Maggie and Tyler, retaining creative control over their music is very important to them.
- Harsher in Hindsight: "Like the Dawn." Dear Wormwood is about that same relationship. It can be sobering to see how quickly it goes from thunderstruck Love at First Sight to something that threatens to destroy the protagonist.
- Signature Song: "Hello My Old Heart."
- Tear Jerker: "I Have Made Mistakes," "This Will End." "Hello My Old Heart" can be this as well.
YMMV / The Oh Hellos
