* AccidentalMisnaming: Fone Bone and Smiley Bone never quite seem to get that Roque Ja is not actually named "Rock Jaw." In their defense, the names are almost completely identical, it's just that you're supposed to roll the R.

* BerserkButton: Notably averted on at least two occasions: when Thorn sees a soldier hitting a little girl, she just tosses him on his ass, and even later, when [[spoiler:Kingdok talks about eating her mother alive,]] she looks extremely angry for a moment, but lets it pass. However, she goes utterly ballistic when Fone Bone brings Bartleby into her bedroom, going so far as to threaten to kill the baby rat-creature.

* BlackSheep: Among a race of evil, vicious, bloodthirsty monsters are a comic duo who are by any definition, incredibly stupid and spend more time bickering than puruing their victims.

* BodyHorror: If you look closely at Kingdok, you will notice that in his first two appearances he looks like an ordinary rat creature, only taller and bipedal. But as the story progresses, he begins to change - his eyes grow farther apart, his arms shrink, his head grows much larger (and eventually fuses into a Cephalothorax,) his narrow fangs morph into [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily wide, flat, shark-like teeth.]] By the end of the book, he hardly resembles a Rat Creature so much as a walking mouth with legs. It's implied his gradual de-evolution is brought on by the corruption of the Lord of the Locusts.

** Also, 'Bartleby' is the name of the eponymous creepy office worker in Herman Melville's ''Bartleby, the Scrivener''. Herman Melville also wrote ''Moby-Dick'', the book that Fone Bone is obsessed with. This makes Smiley Bone's comment that "he ''looks'' like a Bartleby!" ridiculous to those in the know: he really, really doesn't.
