** Although her ''actual'' name hasn't been revealed, [[WordOfGod William Joyce]] mentioned that "They called her Flee because she could jump and run so fast. But on that fateful day she was too afraid." So she's called Flee.

* AllThereInTheManual: In the book's Jack Frost is revealed to actually be an older [[spoiler: Nightlight. Before Jack Frost was Jack Frost, he was Nightlight, the most trusted and valiant companion of Mim, the Man in the Moon. As Nightlight, he has appeared in every novel of the Guardians of Childhood series, but as Jack Frost, he has yet to make his first official appearance. The books mention that Nightlight was incapable of aging unless he gave someone a "Kiss of Goodnight", and in "Sandman and the War Of Dreams" he willingly gives up being a "Nightlight" by kissing Katherine so she could wake up, resulting in him being able to grow older (And thus growing into Jack Frost). Nightlight's story and development into Jack Frost is going to be revealed in [[http://riseoftheguardians.wikia.com/wiki/Jack_Frost:_The_End_Becomes_The_Beginning the final novel.]] ]]

** WordOfGod mentions that Jack ''does'' know how to properly fight: ''Jack's battle style consists of Parkour and Kendo (means "way of the sword"). He combines free-running with Martial Arts to make a unique battle style. With perfect timing and skills, Jack is able to dodge an enemy attack and instantly response by calculating his body and staff movements to be able deliver his own attack. He also pays close attention to an enemy movements since a response that is too slow or fast may not be effective.''
* IHaveManyNames: Jack Frost can also be called the Old Man Winter, King Frost or Father Frost.Frost. In the books he's also called [[spoiler: Nightlight]].

However common depictions of him are generally of the [[https://www.scoop.it/t/they-were-here-and-might-return/p/4005648234/2013/08/04/jack-frost-father-frost-old-man-winter-perhaps-jokul-frosti "Young, handsome elfin" kind]] and Jack Frost is often portrayed to look like an elf: [[http://s1.1zoom.net/big0/409/320685-Sepik.jpg small and with young-looking features.]] He may also have wintry touches like white hair, blue clothing, or icicles adorning his body.



** Actually Jack Frost in mythology was actually relatively kind...if you treated him well. If you were kind to him, he'd give you protection from the winter elements; be rude, and he'd leave you to freeze to your death. Jack Frost was originally just an expression. Though over time he turned from an expression to an actual personification of winter. Jack Frost's EstablishingCharacterMoment in his mythology came from Margaret T. Canby's ''Birdie and His Fairy Friends'' in which there is a short story called ''"The Frost Fairies."'' In this story, Jack Frost is the king of the frost fairies and is described as a ''kind'' fellow ''who wants to help children'', whereas a king of a neighboring kingdom, King Winter, is cruel to them. The story tells the origins of how Jack Frost began to oversee the coloring of the leaves of the forest in fall. This is the first known establishment of Jack Frost as a character, and he's not only sympathetic but ''heroic'' and ''combats against other more malevolent personifications of winter''.

** Actually the only thing he did was [[RefusalOfTheCall refuse the call]]; he never traded Baby Tooth for his memories, Pitch kidnapped her while he was distracted (In fact Pitch throws them at him after successfully distracting him long enough for the nightmares to destroy the eggs).



** Actually he never traded Baby Tooth for his memories, Pitch kidnapped her while he was distracted (In fact Pitch throws them at him after successfully distracting him long enough for the nightmares to destroy the eggs). The other Guardians ''think'' he did though. Though he is shown to feel extremely guilty for accidentally allow Pitch to destroy the eggs.



* PurposelyOverpowered: Jack has a variety of abilities, including the power of flight, quick reflexes, the power to conjure ice and snow, induce euphoria with said snow and was even able to destroy Pitch’s cavalry of nightmares with a single super-charge of ice magic. With enough practice, he could go toe to toe with Pitch on his own, something that took five guardians the first time. Keep in mind that he could do all of this ''before he ever gets a single believer.''

Added DiffLines:

* VagueAge: Jack Frost seems to have no actual confirmed age: [[WordOfSaintPaul the Rise of the Guardians App states: "Jack Frost has been around for over 300 years, but he is forever trapped at the age of 17." When asked how old is Jack Frost supposed to be, Peter Ramsey responded: "I always thought 17, myself." The book, Guide to the Guardians, states that Jack Frost has been 18 years old for more than 300 years.]] But [[WordOfGod William Joyce]] has stated that Jack Frost was stuck at the age of 14, but have the power to be able to change his physical age, becoming older or younger at will. So basically all of these ages are right.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Well, "heroism" might be a stretch, but Pitch does come across a bit less loathsome here than in the books. [[spoiler: Book!Pitch is rightfully regarded as a monster, what with his [[WouldHurtAChild kidnapping children and warping them into Fearlings]] and outright ''genocide'' of the Pookas. If anything, you feel sorry for Kozmotis Pitchiner, the Golden Age General who became Pitch after being possessed by Fearlings]]. Movie!Pitch, while being still a [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]] [[JerkAss jackass]], is also shown in the tie-in comics [[spoiler:to have once been a WellIntentionedExtremist who protected children from danger a la ScareEmStraight before the Guardians were chosen, and has since been largely dismissed as not real.]] It doesn't really justify his [[KickTheDog dog-kicking]], but you can see where he's coming from if nothing else.
