Hyperbole is a figure of speech involving an exxagerated idea to accentuate a real situation. It's an amusing device used to create contrast between a normal desciption and one with an overstatement.

Not only can hyperboles be found in our oral statements and in literature but they're also important in media ad campaigns. Visual hyperboles have become commonplace on the TV screen. They're amplified graphically to encourage people to buy products. The research in this area has been sparse.

A Euphemism is an expression that conveys a polite term for something unpleasant. They lose their literal meaning and become a tactful way to describe an objectionable term. It's a good way to test the bounds of political correctness. They can be indirect to describe something direct. Mispronouncing objectionable words can create the same type of effect. In reality, they can be as bad as the real objectionable term.

Ever hear of a Doppelganger? These are characters created in literature that define a mirror image within a principal persona. A common definition usually references a look-alike type of personality. Traditionally, doppelgangers are the evil aspect inserting wicked ideas into the head of it's counterpart. They're used to show other parts of a character study to create a conflict within a story and to show the darker more objectionable sides inside a protagonists mind and heart. Showing the possible dark side as well as the light...

Doppelgangers really add spice to some of the best stories out there.
 
They can show different aspects inside the nature of an individual character. 
 
The Picture of Dorian Grey shows this very clearly:

Then there also is the relationship aspect involved.

When you go searching for fallacies be careful not to distort the intentions of writers to much. This in itself can cause more misunderstanding and circular argumentation. Leading nowhere. Critics can be real dicks when it comes to that sort of thing.

Didacticism is a literary device used in art and media to project information and educate people. They are loaded with detail and the main intention for their use is to offer something more than just entertainment. This thread would be a form of didacticism. Mostly it seeks to educate the reader but adding humor makes it entertaining. Combined with metaphor and allegory a didactic story can be quite compelling. These devices are great in morality stories. One of the best examples would be Dante's Divine Comedy...
