* Susan thinks about her father having been made a Duke, which was meant to be a position for warfare. Except Mort went around talking to all the potential enemies and suddenly there were a lot fewer wars. Once you've stood up to Death face to face, diplomacy must have come easy.

* Just the ''idea'' that the universe of Discworld didn't just "bang" into existence: it was birthed by a ''power chord'', which is still echoing through its every atom and energy-wave.

* Vetinari continues being a MemeticBadass even in his minor role in the book when being informed of events from the beggar Foul Ole Ron. Ron's smell is so infamous, it's considered a separate person that doesn't just linger, it arrives early and gets comfortable. After he leaves Vetinari's office, Vetinari gives one of his subtle threatening dismissals again, causing the smell to flee.

* A retrospective moment when Albert comments that Susan's father, Mort, was the only one who could ever stand up to Death and say no to him. A long way from the gangly, useless farm boy, eh?

* Death gets a particularly awesome moment at the end of the story, when he contemplates changing the course of history and saving the musician's life. Another character reminds Death that, when you change the fate of one person, you change the whole world (which was the entire point of ''Mort'', after all). Death responds by saying, sometimes the world needs changing.

** This is even better when you realise that Death is ''incapable of playing any music'', as mentioned in earlier books.

* A near-literal Crowning Moment, when the Music first takes possession of Buddy at the Mended Drum and a disastrous flop that's got the crowd hurling bottles and axes onto the stage is transformed into a blockbusting concert for the ages, with ''one'' paradigm-shattering power chord. Just like that, Buddy ''is'' the King of Music With Rocks In.

* The moment when Death [[spoiler: smashes his scythe, takes a shard of it for a guitar pick, "took a stance that Crash would have died to achieve," and plays the chord that will end the universe]].
