Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The Magnus Archives is a horror podcast written and performed by Jonathan Sims (of The Mechanisms fame) with a supporting cast and occasional guests. It began in 2016.Jonathan Sims is the newly appointed archivist of the Magnus Institute, an academic organisation in London dedicated to research into the paranormal. Unfortunately his predecessor Gertrude Robinson left the archive in a complete mess. Countless statements from people who have come to the Institute over the years to report alleged supernatural experiences lie in hopeless disorder. It’s up to Jonathan to record them properly, and follow up any interesting ones with the help of his assistants, Tim, Sasha and Martin. As he works through the statements, Jonathan discovers that some of them suggest disturbing connections with each other – and with the Institute itself.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })At first most episodes take the form of Jonathan reading and recording a statement from the archive, or occasionally recording someone else giving a new statement; a cast of regular supporting characters builds up as the story develops. Once the statement is over Jonathan adds some comments of his own, noting any further investigation his assistants have been able to do, how much of the statement he believes and any other implications it may have. At first each episode seems self-contained, but story arcs develop as the series goes on, and over time monologue more often gives way to full-cast drama or a mixture of the two.The series is produced by Rusty Quill and can be found on their website. It also has a wiki and a reddit.See also Rusty Quill Gaming and Stellar Firma.Note: Only spoilers for Seasons 3, 4, and 5 are marked. Proceed at your own risk.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })

Dream Walker: The true nature of the Archivist, revealed at the end of Season 3. Jon's bad dreams aren't a reaction to trauma. He haunts the nightmares of the people who he has personally taken statements from, watching them suffer. This is arguably his real 'archive'.

Jon's parents died when he was little; he was raised by an emotionally distant grandmother and had no friends until he went to university. He also nearly died as a child after an encounter with the Web, and is slowly transforming into the Archivist.

Unreliable Narrator

MAG 142 reveals that Jon's been an Unreliable Narrator - he's stated on tape that he's only been using his powers for the greater good (i.e. on villains and people with information so crucial that the benefits of learning it outweigh the costs of hurting the person), but in reality he's been going out between episodes and feeding on innocents.

A Lighter Shade of Black
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_19fc58a2
comment
A Lighter Shade of Black: Sure, the Magnus Institute works to stop the potentially world-ending rituals of eldritch fear gods and their followers... but only because the Institute follows its own eldritch fear god and wants to get its own world-ending ritual completed before anyone else's. The same could also be said of Gertrude Robinson, who dedicated her life to foiling the Powers and their rituals, but who pretty much no one would describe as a "good person" by the end of it.

The Main Characters Do Everything: Even though the Magnus Institute at least appears to have several additional, never-seen employees such as researchers and librarians, everything done during the story that advances the plot is centered around Jon, Martin, Sasha, Tim, Elias and other people brought into their group as the story progresses. Aside from them, the few Institute employees who are mentioned by name are almost never seen or heard and have no direct impact on the plot.

We All Die Someday
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_1dd12556
comment
In season 5, this happens to everyone on earth with the exception of Jonah Magnus, Jon and Martin, as the Entities fully manifest in our reality and trap humanity in waking nightmares from which death is no escape. We see people dying and coming back on a constant battlefield, having to tear off and wear each other's faces on an endless carousel, trapped in a constantly burning building and being forced to tunnel through the ground like worms. Although there is some hope:The End, as the fear of death, has to actually, really kill people. As no new humans are being born, eventually it will kill everyone. So there's that, at least.

Framing Device
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_1e1afc1b

Framing Device: Jonathan is recording the statements for the archive, thus giving the listener a different character’s story in each episode. As time goes on though, we get to hear what happens when Jon isn't recording a statement, but the framing device remains: the tape recorders start appearing on their own.

Ambiguous Situation: Some episodes leave it ambiguous which Fear is responsible for the statement. One example is "Zombie", which could involve the Stranger, the Lonely, or the Spiral. Another example would be Binary, which didn't seem to fit with any of the various Powers for a long time.

Ominous Latin Chanting
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_1fdaf8ff
comment
Ominous Latin Chanting: In one of the trailers a mysterious voice chants vigilo, audio, opperior.* I watch, I listen, I wait. The tape picks it up when Jonathan leaves it running as he momentarily leaves the room. Gets an Meaningful Echo in "The Eye Opens," the description of which reads vigilo, audio, supervenio - I watch, I listen, I overtake. This works both as a description of the episode's premise - Jonah Magnus, who has been watching and listening throughout the series, overtakes Jon through a false statement - and its conclusion - in which the Eye, alongside the other Powers, overtake reality.

Primal Fear: Pretty much every episode deals with a supernatural manifestation of a primal fear, e.g. death, fire, darkness, etc... In episode 111, we learn that the cosmic entities responsible for all these occurrences are, in fact, each the embodiment of a different primal fear.

Crapsack World
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_21d70919
comment
Crapsack World: As the statements continuously prove — and as Tim rants at one point — innocent people constantly have their lives destroyed either by eldritch beings or the Jerkass humans who serve said beings, due to the simple bad luck of talking to the wrong person, going to the wrong place, reading a certain book, etc. Even if those interviewed survived their initial encounter, many follow-ups done by the Archive reveal that lots of them either died or disappeared anyway after giving their statement. And when Gerard Keay explains the existence of the Fourteen Powers, he bluntly says that he hasn't seen evidence of any positive Powers, meaning the world is basically a buffet for unimaginable horrors with little or nothing that can stop them.

Good Is Not Soft
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_21f60711
comment
Good Is Not Soft: Gertrude Robinson, although initially portrayed as an ineffectual paper-pusher, secretly devoted her life to stopping the powers of evil by any means necessary. She blew up inhabited buildings, murdered an astronaut and threw his dismembered body into a pit, consigned multiple people to fates worse than death, and planned to blind herself in order to thwart her own supernatural patron. All in the service of saving lives and doing good. Tragically, it turns out that the rituals she was thwarting never could have succeeded in ending the world regardless. Still, they might have had awful consequences.

Ambiguously Human
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_225d8ff9
comment
Ambiguously Human: Sasha, on meeting "Michael", immediately perceives the latter as non-human even though "it" looks human. This impression is reinforced so when they shake hands - its hand is described as heavy, like a wet leather bag full of heavy, sharp stones. The narrator describes the strange hunter in "First Hunt" as looking human except that "everything about him was sharper" and he has a smile with "far too many teeth to it". This is the ultimate fate of humans who are marked to become avatars, priests, and/or servants of the great powers. When you feed a god, it feeds you. In episode 92, Elias confirms that this includes him and Jon, both of whom are creatures serving The Beholding. As of season 4, Jon is much less human, recovering from a six-month coma completely by recording a statement.

Beneath Suspicion: You'll expect horrors from things like spiders, ancient artifacts, and the dark. But then cigarettes, of all things, are turned into an omen of something very, very bad. The first episode dangles this in front of you, but by the time it's brought back into prominence, there's been several examples to re-examine in a new light.

Walking Spoiler: Saying anything about Jonah Magnus will inevitably lead to at least one of three things being spoiled: that he founded the Magnus Institute in service to Beholding, that he's currently possessing Elias Bouchard, or that he's been working throughout the series to cause the apocalypse, which he finally achieves at the end of Season 4. To a lesser extent, it's impossible to talk about Oliver Banks without revealing that Antonio Blake (one of the earliest plot-relevant statement givers) is a fabricated persona.

He Who Fights Monsters
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_2c1f1138
comment
He Who Fights Monsters: The series has plenty of these. Characters that intend to use the abilities granted by the Dread Powers for heroic purposes inevitably end up succumbing to their monstrous side, while characters that avoid becoming tethered to the Powers remain physically human but often become more morally monstrous than the Avatars they fight. Gertrude Robinson, despite her role as Archivist, refused to use her Beholding abilities and devoted her life to stopping the Powers' rituals, including the Watcher's Crown. She prevented countless rituals over her lifetime... but to do so, she had to betray and sacrifice her assistants, doom innocent civilians, and commit all sorts of other crimes. It's nearly universally accepted that Gertrude was a terrible person. Her actions are put into an even harsher light by MAG 160, which reveals that every ritual she destroyed was doomed to failure with or without her intervention, meaning the terrible acts she committed were All for Nothing. Most Hunters fall under this trope. They feed their god by hunting and killing monsters, but as time passes and their connection to the Hunt grows, they start caring less and less about whether they accidentally kill innocents as well. Jon becomes this in later seasons. As he settles into the role of Archivist, he gains several evil-seeming powers - a Compelling Voice, the ability to give people nightmares and then watch their dreams, the ability to rip information out of people's minds, and a Horror Hunger for others' trauma - but at first he intends to only use these powers for good. But over time, he starts losing his moral scruples regarding his powers, first using them when they aren't absolutely necessary and then feeding on innocent civilians. By the end of season 4, he's the lynchpin in a successful Beholding ritual to bring about the apocalypse, all because he couldn't overcome his hunger for statements.

All First-Person Narrators Write Like Novelists: Despite the statements being given by people from all sorts of professions and social class, all of them sound quite extensive and expressive. It's ultimately revealed that part of the Archivist's powers is giving people the ability to express themselves in such a way, since whenever anyone besides Jon tries to take a live statement, the results are far less impressive.

Mysterious Stranger: "Michael", whom Sasha meets in "A Distortion" and who engages her in Cryptic Conversation about her colleagues, whose names it [sic] knows. Later in the episode it appears to become a Mysterious Protector when it removes one of Jane Prentiss's silver worms from Sasha's body which would otherwise have killed her, or worse. Then, in The New Door, it delivers that episode's statement giver to a horrendous fate, which along with its self-description and what has happened to Sasha since, casts a lot of doubt on its protection credentials.

Face Death with Dignity
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_396e1c2a
comment
Face Death with Dignity: This appears in certain statements, although they're just as likely to end in inelegant blubbering. More than once, this has caused whatever creature that is pursuing the statement giver to stop, as the monsters are generally after their prey's fear more than their prey's death. Characters like Jason North (MAG 37) and Robert Montauk (MAG 9) are less lucky. Tim Stoker goes out like this at the end of season 3. After multiple seasons of him having a mental breakdown and taking his rage out on everyone in the Archives, especially Jon, his last words are to thank Jon for everything he's done for him and to crack an ironic joke before he blows himself up in order to stop the Unknowing.

Killer Cop: The season 1 episode "A Father's Love" is about a girl's childhood living with her serial killer father, who was also a policeman. Daisy Tonner is one of these, on account of her servitude to the Hunt. Elias' comments imply that many of Daisy's coworkers, especially those that have signed Section 31, are this as well.

Emotion Eater: Avatars of the Dread Powers, as they devote more and more of themselves to their god, begin to need to consume other people's fear in order to survive. They become tired and disheveled if they aren't exposed to fear, and have better command of their abilities after having fed; the method in which they take in fear is determined by the Power they serve. Jon, an avatar of the Eye, feeds by taking statements - he compels people that have encountered the supernatural to tell him about their trauma (and then relive it through nightmares). Daisy, an avatar of the Hunt, feeds by chasing and killing people.

Hidden Villain: For its first four seasons, the series appears to be a Rogues Gallery with no true Big Bad - there are fourteen evil Entities trying to bring about world-ending rituals, but none of them seem to be more or less powerful than each other, and the protagonists are able to disrupt all of their plans. Until the end of season 4, when the Big Bad is revealed to be none other than Jonah Magnus, the original founder of the Magnus Institute. He's been possessing Elias Bouchard since before the start of the series, and has orchestrated all of the protagonists' victories in order to make way for the Beholding ritual, the Watcher's Crown. Which he forces Jon to successfully perform in the season 4 finale.

The Coroner Doth Protest Too Much: A follow-up shows one narrator in a spider-related story was killed by asphyxiation on unknown organic material in his throat, found encased in spider web. Jonathan doesn't believe it's related. The coroner literally doth protest in "Taken Ill" (36) when dealing with a death caused by an unusual illness in a nursing home. Then there's the fate of the other residents...

Wham Line: At the end of MAG 38, we seemingly end on a lighthearted moment with Jonathan accidentally knocking over a bookshelf while trying to kill a spider... and then he and Sasha find a hole in the wall that seems to go all the way to the exterior. And then we hear something starting to squirm... In "The Masquerade", when the team learns what's really powering the Unknowing: The first five minutes of MAG 160 start out as a Breather Episode, especially after the harrowing events of 159, with fluffy interactions between Jon and Martin. Jon absentmindedly picks up a statement to read while he's on his own, setting up a relatively mundane-sounding story about a fire in a woman's childhood home. Then he reads the first line. One of the next lines is even whammier. The line that precedes Jon summoning the 14 Fears under Jonah's control:

Electromagnetic Ghosts
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_4f30412f
comment
Electromagnetic Ghosts: It is implied that this is why the “bizarre” statements (i.e. all the ones the audience hears) come out distorted when Jonathan tries to record them on a computer, so he has to use an old tape recorder. Some of those making statements seem to have had similar experiences. Static also appears on the tape recordings when someone they are recording uses a supernatural power. In "Growing Dark" it is hinted that something supernatural is causing the lights to stop working in the narrator's girlfriend's flat. They replace the bulbs, check the fittings and call in an electrician but can find nothing apparently wrong. Then subverted when it turns out not to be supernatural, merely bizarre - someone (presumably his girlfriend's strange flatmate) keeps unscrewing all the bulbs just enough to break the connections.

Body Horror
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_504a1991
comment
Body Horror: Occurs in a number of episodes. In "Skintight" Sarah peels the skin off her injured arm, then staples it back on. Jared Hopworth is transformed into something Not Quite Human in "The Boneturner's Tale," multiple limbs included. As recounted in "Cheating Death," those who win a game with Death become its successor, and the flesh that the winner formerly enjoyed is granted to the loser, and the new Death walks as a skeleton that cannot die. In season 5, the residents of the plague village are infected by a persistent mold. One of the victims, Gillian Smith, tries peeling off her skin to find out where the corruption stops, but no matter how deep she goes, there's just more mold. When the fungus reaches someone's bones, as it eventually does to Gillian, they "bloom", exploding in a cloud of spores and spreading the infection further.

Glamor Failure: Whenever the Not-Them performs a Kill and Replace on someone, rewriting reality in the process, there are always one or two people who remain unaffected and realise they're not the same person. Of course, this is assuming the Not-Them isn't doing it deliberately to create more unease and dread... "Michael"'s true appearance can be seen through warped glass.

Evil Is Visceral: the episode "Killing Floor" narrates horrifying events in a slaughterhouse. In "A Father's Love," the streetlights in the narrator's neighborhood go out in succession, moving toward her house. Then there's a knock at the door, and then another, and another, with each one sounding less like a human, and more like wet meat slapping against the door. Jared Hopworth uses a very gruesome method to get rid of his victim.

Cosmic Horror Story: Humanity is a plaything for ancient and incomprehensible entities dwelling beyond the universe, which feed on/embody the fears of every living thing on the planet. They defy all attempts at rational analysis; even their own servants, human and otherwise, admit to not understanding what they are or why they do things. The Entities cannot be defeated or even meaningfully fought, any more than you could punch the concept of arachnophobia, and at any moment they might arbitrarily single you out for torment or death because you would be the right kind of afraid while it happens.

The Undead: The fate of those who become pages in the Book of the End, including Mary Keay and Gerard Keay. Also the fate of Jon at the end of Season 3. His body is clinically dead. His lungs do not breathe and his heart does not beat. But his brain activity is off the charts, as he lies in a 'coma' and communes with The Eye.

Jigsaw Puzzle Plot
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_715704e5
comment
Jigsaw Puzzle Plot: The series is an example of this, with all of its five seasons having been fully planned out before the series began. On the surface, each episode is an isolated, one-off horror story (framed as a statement read by the archivist of the Magnus Institute), but every single episode ties back into the series-long Myth Arc, a centuries-spanning Secret War involving eldritch gods and their human devotees. This means that every episode contains seemingly innocuous details that are brought up again tens or even hundreds of episodes later as critical plot points (for example, the Monster of the Week of the very first episode is revealed to be the driving force behind the Unknowing, the apocalyptic ritual of one of the eldritch gods in episode 119).

Married to the Job

Married to the Job: Jonathan Sims, Head Archivist of the Magnus Institute - he has no friends outside his workplace (to the point where he considers an ex-girlfriend he hasn't spoken to in years his closest friend), and he comes to work early and stays late, even sleeping in his office a lot of the time. It's hard to tell how much this applied prior to his life before being recruited to become an avatar of the Beholding and having his humanity stripped from him, but even early on in the series, it doesn't seem like he has much of a life outside of work.

The Ageless: A couple of characters reappear after they should have died of aging, or seeming far younger than they should be, though in most cases it could just be a coincidence of names and descriptions, save for narrative principles. The second stage of existence for those who gamble with Death and win, after encountering a successor. Hinted to be the ultimate fate of each head archivist of the Magnus Archive.

Who You Gonna Call?

comment
Who You Gonna Call?: The Institute advertises itself as a place where anyone who has had a supernatural experience can come give a statement, and many people assume that it also offers aid or information on what might have happened to them or why. It does not, and the only thing people get for their business is a lifetime of nightmares and paranoia if they're lucky.

Being Watched: For most of Season 1, Jon is a clear Agent Scully - he claims that nearly every statement he reads is bogus, even when he's presented with undeniable evidence to the contrary. In the season 1 finale, Martin confronts him, asking why he insists all the stories are fake when they're obviously real... and Jon confesses that he actually believes all of them. He's just been feigning skepticism because he feels like something has been watching him read statements, and that whatever is watching him will get very angry if he admits that the statements are credible. He's completely right. The Magnus Institute is a cult that serves the physical manifestation of the fear of being watched, and by reading statements, Jon has actually been feeding it.

The first five minutes of MAG 160 start out as a Breather Episode, especially after the harrowing events of 159, with fluffy interactions between Jon and Martin. Jon absentmindedly picks up a statement to read while he's on his own, setting up a relatively mundane-sounding story about a fire in a woman's childhood home. Then he reads the first line.

Bloody Horror: A character attacks a dead tree with a crowbar. The fluid that comes out is not sap. The book The Bone Turner's Tale causes the books around it to bleed. A character struggles to keep a door closed as something on the other side tries to open it. When it finally gives up and he takes his hand away, it's covered in blood, though he has no injuries and the door handle is clean.

Dysfunction Junction
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_820ac3c5
comment
Dysfunction Junction: Every main character has a major character flaw or Dark and Troubled Past of some sort, even disregarding all of the terrible things that happen to them during the series. Jon's parents died when he was little; he was raised by an emotionally distant grandmother and had no friends until he went to university. He also nearly died as a child after an encounter with the Web, and is slowly transforming into the Archivist. Martin's father left when he was a child, and for the majority of his life Martin has been the primary caregiver for his ailing mother, who openly despises him because he reminds her of his father. Tim was forced to watch his brother be skinned alive by agents of the Stranger. Daisy murdered her childhood best friend after he was taken by the Hunt, and since then has killed countless other people that she believed to be monsters. Basira has completely shut down emotionally as a result of PTSD from working for Section 31 (and, later, for the Magnus Institute). Melanie has severe anger issues, and does not react well to the knowledge that she unwittingly condemned her father to a horrible death by putting him in a care home that was attacked by the Corruption. Sasha seems to be the Only Sane Man of the archival staff, until it's revealed that she died at the end of Season 1 and was replaced by an evil Doppelgänger.

Alternate Universe: The statement giver from "Cracked Foundation" apparently came from an alternate universe - in her original world, the buildings were different, she had friends that don't know her in this one, and the Institute didn't even exist. Several details in the plot point to the entire setting being in a slightly alternate universe. For instance, Robert Smirke (a fairly major Posthumous Character and real-life architect) died in April 1867 in the real world; he dies writing a letter to Jonah Magnus mid-February.

Agent Scully: Jonathan knows that the supernatural exists but believes very few alleged cases are genuine. He says in the very first episode that most files are likely to end up in the archive's "Discredited" section and is quick to dismiss those who give the statements as deluded, hallucinating, lying or simply mistaken unless there is strong corroboration (though any mention of the name Jurgen Leitner or Jane Prentiss dispels his skepticism). Eventually he reveals that he actually believes far more than he has been letting on, and has been feigning skepticism in his recordings because he believes someone or something is listening in, and fears that something terrible will happen if he admits to all of it. Unsettlingly, he may have been completely right. When Helen Richardson comes in, he admits he believes her... and then "Michael" consumes her within minutes of him admitting to this.

Bad Powers, Good People: Jon gets these in later seasons. Having a Compelling Voice that forces people to tell the truth sounds cool... until you realize it also comes with the ability to rip information out of people's heads via Mind Rape, the ability to give people recurrent nightmares of their trauma and then watch their dreams, and a Horror Hunger for other people's fear. Jon tries to use these powers for good, although he begins to stray into Anti-Hero territory during season 4.

Bait-and-Switch: As the podcast goes on, listeners will begin to notice patterns to the supernatural threats. Sometimes an episode will set itself up to be about one kind of monster, and then be about an entirely different kind of monster instead—for example, "Zombie" episode 2 of season 4, is not about the undead but about a woman convinced she's surrounded by constructs pretending to be real people.

It turns out that this was almost certainly not the real priest.

Rewatch Bonus: A lot of things appear in a much different light once you know that the Institute itself serves a Power, Gertrude was actively fighting nearly every supernatural entity in range including the one she technically belonged to, and "Elias" is actually Jonah Magnus himself.

Eye Motifs: Eye images are described frequently throughout the series. Eye symbols are associated with the supernaturally-inclined Keay family and the People's Church of the Divine Host, and one supernaturally aware individual was noted to go to unusual lengths to remove them from her possessions.

Nothing Is the Same Anymore
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_99dfd4fc
comment
Nothing Is the Same Anymore: Every season finale after the first has majorly shaken up the status quo. The season 2 finale acts as a Cosmic Horror Reveal. The statements taken by the Institute aren't disconnected one-off stories - they're all inspired by fourteen Eldritch Abominations based on humanity's primal fears, which manifest physically in our world in the form of supernatural encounters. And the Institute serves one of these entities. Also, Elias is revealed to be a villain, murdering both Gertrude Robinson and Jurgen Leitner and framing Jon for the latter. The season 3 finale ends with Tim and Daisy dead, Jon in a coma (and also definitively no longer human), Elias in prison, and Peter Lukas as the new Head of the Institute. The season 4 finale is the greatest change to status quo yet: one of the apocalypse rituals finally succeeds. Jonah Magnus compels Jon to complete the Watcher's Crown, effectively ending the world.

Eldritch Location
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_9bee1a7f
comment
Eldritch Location: Many of the Dread Powers can manifest as this; it's speculated that this is the purest form of their existence. For example - the inside of the Coffin leads to the Buried, an endless, pulsating maze of cramped dirt tunnels, while the Distortion's doorways lead to the Spiral, a hallway that goes on forever. The titular archives rise above labyrinthine catacombs that organize and contain manifestations of primal fear. The building itself is a place of power for the acolytes of one of those forces, the Ceaseless Watcher.

Kill It with Fire
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_9c1f758a
comment
Kill It with Fire: In the season 1 episode "Squirm", such is Timothy Hodge's horror at the infestation that suddenly appears in his bedroom that he immediately sets the place on fire. Surprisingly, this appears to be one of the best ways to disrupt a ritual of one of the Dread Powers. Gertrude Robinson and Adelard Dekker had large quantities of explosives that they kept for the express purpose of blowing up rituals... and it worked. Several times.

Our Vampires Are Different
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_9f63d4f1
comment
Our Vampires Are Different: As Trevor Herbert describes them, vampires in the series are more like humanoid fleas or ticks than the Dracula or Anne Rice standards. They can dislocate their jaws, have extremely long tongues, and visibly distend while consuming blood. Additionally, they do not speak but can make themselves understood through some sort of telepathy or mind control, they are not hurt by sunlight, and their bite does not create more of their kind.

Gun Nut: The season 1 episode "First Hunt" is narrated by Lawrence Mortimer, a British man visiting America to go on his first hunting expedition with internet-friend Arden Neally. He's keen on guns and shooting but is limited in pursuing his interest by the UK's restrictive gun laws. When he gets there, he's very excited by Arden's gun collection.

Double-Meaning Title: The show's title most obviously refers to the fact that the main characters are the archival staff of the Magnus Institute. But the post-season 4 Q&A reveals that "The Magnus Archives" is also the name of Jonah's ritual to bring all of the Dread Powers into the world, which he has worked towards throughout the show and finally pulls off in the season 4 finale.

Healing Factor: In "Piecemeal", a character starts mysteriously losing body parts. They don't grow back, but the wounds they leave behind heal instantly. Jon gains this in season 4, after he fully devotes himself to Beholding and becomes the Archivist. He's able to completely recover from a six-month coma by reading a single statement, and when he tries to cut off his finger in "Flesh" (to create an anchor that will let him enter the Buried), he's unable to because the finger keeps growing back.

And I Must Scream
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_a8a04f6f
comment
And I Must Scream: In episode 145, we find that Gertrude Robinson did something to Eugene Vanderstock, a Lightless Flame cultist. Something that seems to horrify even Arthur Nolan, leader of Vanderstock's cult. We only find out by the end: As Desolation cultists are made of wax, Gertrude somehow managed to fill his wax body with shards of sawdust, stole his head, and hid it somewhere. And worst of all, Vanderstock is still alive and desperately wants to scream. Damn. In season 5, this happens to everyone on earth with the exception of Jonah Magnus, Jon and Martin, as the Entities fully manifest in our reality and trap humanity in waking nightmares from which death is no escape. We see people dying and coming back on a constant battlefield, having to tear off and wear each other's faces on an endless carousel, trapped in a constantly burning building and being forced to tunnel through the ground like worms. Although there is some hope:The End, as the fear of death, has to actually, really kill people. As no new humans are being born, eventually it will kill everyone. So there's that, at least.

Don't Touch It, You Idiot!: The coffin in "Do Not Open" has the three words from the episode's title scratched on its lid. Thankfully, the protagonist isn't Too Dumb to Live and is smart enough not to do so. Though it's not for lack of trying on the part of the coffin. In "Breathing Room", Jon has to repeatedly tell Martin this about pretty much everything they find in Gertrude's storage locker, including a stack of probably-Leitner books and a box of explosives.

Arc Villain: The first three seasons are structured this way, with one Avatar menacing the heroes for an entire season then being destroyed by the season's end - Jane Prentiss in season 1, Not!Sasha in season 2, and Nikola Orsinov in season 3. Season 4 strays from this trope into a format closer to Monster of the Week, with the protagonists fighting multiple avatars over the course of the season (though Peter Lukas is the closest thing to a season-long villain) and Jonah Magnus being revealed as the Big Bad of the entire series at the season's end.

All for Nothing
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_aed65980
comment
All for Nothing: All of Gertrude's sacrifices to stop the rituals? Sacrificing innocents, bombing buildings, damning her assistant to potentially eternal torment? Until Jonah Magnus, everyone misunderstood the rituals. It's impossible to summon a single entity, and none of those rituals could have ever succeeded. All those sacrifices? They changed nothing. Not entirely, however. The rituals often comprise hideous torments and murders on innocent civilians, so stopping them is still doing some good, especially if in the process the orchestrators who would otherwise try again later are taken out. Moreso than that, rituals can have excessively dangerous effects even if they fail—while the Watcher's Crown didn't recreate the world under the power of the Eye like Jonah had hoped it would, it had the side effect of making him omniscient.

Too Dumb to Live: In "Anglerfish", a young man named Nathan encounters a creepy stranger standing in a dark alleyway who asks him for a cigarette—without moving their mouth. Nathan does not count as this, as he wisely books it, but the six disappearances in that area around that time were the result of six people who didn't think approaching was a bad idea. Inverted in Uncanny Valley, in which the main character, Sebastian Skinner, was too dumb to die: his failure to notice anything amiss about a shower drain being clogged with flesh was funny enough to "Megan" that she let him leave, then invited him back to show Jude Perry and to presumably kill him for real. Luckily for him, Jude also (presumably on a whim) lets him leave with nothing more that a burned shoulder, even holding his car door open for him.

Acceptable Breaks from Reality: The Magnus Institute's choice of archival media. There's virtually no reason to keep records in the unwieldy form of audio recordings (whether analogue or digital), especially when they don't even feature the original interviewees' voices. The transcripts the narrators read from should be all the archive anybody needs. On the other hand... insist on this point, and you won't be left with much of a podcast. It's eventually revealed to be a plot point, since the Archivist is compelled to record statements, and it's Played for Drama when Jon's role as an avatar makes him hungrier and hungirer for statements, eventually forcing him to seek people outside the institute and Compel them to give him a statement.

Daisy decides not to kill Jon only because Basira shows up at the last second and intervenes, and when Daisy loses her connection to Basira (for example, during the Unknowing), she embraces the Hunt and turns fully monstrous.

Break Them by Talking: This is how Elias operates.

He does this to Melanie by revealing to her the horrible way in which her father died (and by forcing her to watch it), and to Martin by telling him the reason that his mother despises him.

Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: The entire Archives team has fallen into this as of season 4.

Hope Spot: The beginning of the season 4 finale. After a season of being tormented by various Entities, slowly losing his humanity, and watching Martin lose himself to the Lonely, Jon manages to save Martin, and they escape together to a safehouse in the Scottish highlands. They spend three weeks relaxing without having to fight any avatars; Jon seems to have managed to remain human and avoid succumbing to the Beholding, and the two of them seem genuinely happy. And then Jon reads a statement... which is actually a booby trap created by Jonah Magnus, who mind-controls Jon into reading an incantation that manifests all of the Entities, completing the first ever successful ritual and effectively ending the world.

Cosmic Horror Reveal
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_cb11543c
comment
MAG 80 has two huge twists that alter the course of the entire series. The first is a Cosmic Horror Reveal: according to Jurgen Leitner, all of the cases the archival staff have dealt with thus far have been the work of eldritch beings modeled after humanity's primal fears... and the Magnus Institute is essentially a cult created to serve one of these eldritch beings. The second is Elias being revealed as Gertrude Robinson's killer, then proceeding to murder Jurgen Leitner and framing Jon for it, forcing Jon to go into hiding.

Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: Jonathan’s comments on the statements sometimes leave this an open question. However, (the real) Jonathan Sims claims that while most of the statements archived by the Institute are either fabrications or have mundane explanations, all of the statements read on the podcast are in fact supernatural in nature. Yes, including "I Guess You Had To Be There".

Amnesia Missed a Spot: The "Not-Them" are creatures who murder people and seemingly rewrite reality to take their place, even though once they are finished (though they look human) they don't resemble the person they replaced in any way. In every story featuring them, there is always a single person who knows they are not the real person (so far, someone who didn't know the person very well or was estranged from them). However, since said person is then taunted and tormented by the Not-Them, it's implied that they miss said people on purpose.

Gambit Pileup: There are fourteen Entities - incomprehensible eldritch gods that feed off of fear. Each of these Entities has a ritual that, if successfully completed, will manifest it physically into existence (effectively ending the world), and a group of devoted followers that are trying to bring about their patron's ritual at any cost. This means that there are fourteen individual gambits going on at any given time, and it's up to the protagonists to try and foil all of them. Or not. Because the Magnus Institute was created to serve the Beholding, one of the Entities, the protagonists are unwittingly helping bring about the Beholding's ritual by disrupting the other gods' rituals. This culminates in Jon being compelled to start the Watcher's Crown at the end of season 4.

Switching P.O.V.: In "Burned Out" (8), Ivo Lensik tells of a priest, Father Burroughs, visiting the house during his strange experiences there. Later, in "Confession" (19), we see the same visit from Burroughs's viewpoint. In "Pest Control" (55), Jordan Kennedy visits Jane Prentiss' home from "Hive" (32) shortly after she leaves. "Personal Space" (57), "A Matter of Perspective" (105), and “Dark Matter” (135) are seen by the crewmembers of a three-person mission on board the space station Daedalus. The third reveals the station was funded by multiple Avatars for the purpose of experimenting with Rituals in space.

Evil Old Folks: The season 1 episode "Piecemeal" features Angela, who looks like a harmless little old lady but talks casually about having someone horribly killed. The narrator, himself a hardened, violent criminal, recognises in her eyes the look of someone extremely nasty. Many of the stronger avatars of the Powers are old men, including Maxwell Rayner, Simon Fairchild, Peter Lukas, and Jonah Magnus. Mary Keay, an old woman who collected Leitners and used them for nefarious purposes. She murdered her husband and abused her son for decades, before forcing him to kill her so that she could bind herself to a Leitner.

Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: Wilfred Owen encountered the Slaughter in WWI and it apparently provided him the inspiration for his war poems. Robert Smirke was apparently heavily involved with the supernatural and his buildings are noted as reacting to it in unique ways. He also catalogued all of the Powers. Joseph Grimaldi and Wolfgang von Kempelen were servants of the Stranger. Edmond Halley (yes, THAT Halley) was not only a servant of the Dark, but his body also served as the first host of the entity that later called itself Maxwell Rayner).

One Steve Limit: Averted with the characters of "Michael Crew," and "Michael," both of whom are mentioned in multiple episodes. Also Mikaele Salesa; although his name is pronounced differently, it is derived from "Michael" all the same. Due to the sheer amount of statements, there are also plot irrelevant characters that share the same name, which is especially noticeable for the numerous Michaels (episodes 5, 13 and 23 at the very least) and Jon/Johns (episodes 2, 15 and 55 at the very least), as there are also plot relevant characters by those names. Then there's Gerard Keay and Jared Hopworth— their names are phonetically similar enough that it can take a few listens to distinguish them.

When he blows himself up in order to stop the Unknowing at the end of season 3, it paves the way for the much darker, grimmer tone of season 4.

Continuity Lock-Out
 The Magnus Archives (Podcast) / int_f97be86e
comment
Continuity Lockout: The series embodies this in its later seasons. Seasons 1 and 2 are, for the most part, episodic, with each episode consisting of a standalone horror story and a few minutes of commentary at the end. But starting with season 3, the show begins to embrace an intricate Myth Arc and focus more on a recurring cast of characters, and by season 4 it's nigh-impossible to know what's going on in any given episode if you haven't listened to all the previous ones. (Each episode still includes a standalone horror story, but it's usually a backdrop to whatever the main characters are doing that episode, and will probably reference characters and events first introduced tens or even hundreds of episodes before.)

Bigger on the Inside: In "Growing Dark" the narrator visits a small chapel where he believes a dangerous cult is based. It's empty and dark. When his torch goes out, leaving him in total darkness, he decides to walk until he reaches a wall or barrier. It takes him much, much longer to find one than it should given the size of the place. When he gets another torch working, the place again seems to be its normal, small size. In "Killing Floor" this occurs when the narrator attempts to exit the slaughterhouse during his last day on the killing floor. It might be just him, except all the contractors hired to build expansions quit, with one shakily claiming it's already too big.
