* VanityIsFeminine: Averted in ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'' when the Witch often appeals to Edmund's vanity in the "Turkish Delight" tempting scene.



* VanityIsFeminine: Lucy, generally shown as more virtuous than her older and vainer sister Susan, is so tempted by the idea of being more beautiful and desirable than her that only the appearance of Aslan stops her from casting a spell allowing her to do so.



* UnfortunateNames: ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader'' memorably begins, "There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it." Later in ''Literature/TheSilverChair,'' he's introduced with, "His name unfortunately was Eustace Scrubb, but he wasn't a bad sort."

* UnfortunateNames: ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader'' ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'' memorably begins, "There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it." Later in ''Literature/TheSilverChair,'' ''Literature/TheSilverChair," he's introduced with, "His name unfortunately was Eustace Scrubb, but he wasn't a bad sort."" It's mocked again when a hard-of-hearing dwarf thinks his name is "Useless". This is [[WordOfGod explicitly]] a reference to Lewis' own given name, "Clive Staples", which he intensely disliked, and from childhood preferred to be referred to as "Jack".



* VanityIsFeminine: The otherwise completely down to earth Polly immediately starts to trust Digory's ObviouslyEvil uncle after he calls her pretty.



* MessianicArchetype: The man himself, in fact.

to:

* MessianicArchetype: The man himself, in fact. At the end of ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'' he says that [[spoiler:he is known by a 'different name' on Earth]].


Added DiffLines:

* OffstageVillainy: Tash, who doesn't harm anyone "on screen" except for the villain who summoned him. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], as he's not "on screen" much besides in that scene, and it's implied that if [[spoiler: King Peter]] hadn't stopped him, he would have gone after the heroes. Even "off screen", it's mentioned that he requires HumanSacrifice.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: For Aslan. Go back and read ''The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe'' after you've read the later books and he is jarringly out of character throughout.

* SatanicArchetype: She is a representation of the Devil just like Aslan represents God/Jesus.

to:

* SatanicArchetype: She is a representation of the Devil just like Aslan represents God/Jesus. Interestingly enough, however, she doesn't seem to have any connection with Tash, the ''other'' representation of the Devil in the Narnia universe.

* RonTheDeathEater: Though Lewis makes it clear that Aslan is literally Jesus, the WMG page shows that a lot of fans [[DeathOfTheAuthor don't see it that way]].

Added DiffLines:

* DeadpanSnarker: It's downplayed, but Narnia is, after all, a WorldOfSnark, and Lucy does have her occasional moments.
-->'''Peter:''' Girls can't carry a map in their heads.
-->'''Lucy:''' [[InsultBackfire That's because ''our'' heads actually have something in them.]]
