* SinInvitesPossession: Tiffany makes an error based on inexperience and a certain vanity. Untutored as to the pitfalls, she treats astral travel and going out of body as unremarkable and neglects to take safety precautions to prevent anything else from getting in while the back door is open and unlocked. she pops out of her body to check herself out, as if she is looking at herself in a full-length mirror; whilst checking her appearance, the Hiver takes occupation of her body.

* {{Homage}]: The Hiver shares many characteristics with the Brollochan, a similar possessing spirit depending for its sensory input on forcibly occupying the bodies of living things, in Creator/AlanGarner's ''Literature/TheMoonOfGomrath''.

* YouKeepUsingThatWord: Near the end of the book, Tiffany finally gets around to chiding Annagramma for abusing the word "literally".

** Played for laughs; this is how humans (or "bigjobs") treat the Feegles when they are disguised in human clothes so they can rescue Tiffany.

* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Or of Witchcraft, oddly. At the Witch Trials there's scores of witches present, and when something bad happens they all shout, rush about and don't do anything useful at all.

* WaxingLyrical: Rob Anybody's complaint when the Feegles are pretending to be a human -- "I talk to my knees but they dinna listen to me." -- is almost but not quite the first line of a famous song from ''Theatre/PaintYourWagon''. The fact that the song is completely inappropriate to the context just makes it funnier.

* HealingHerb: Played for laughs. Tiffany learns the Doctrine of Signatures from Miss Level, based on a real-life medieval idea that God placed a "signature" on every plant that indicated its medical use, to those who could read it properly. This being Discworld, the signatures are literal, and with a very close magnifying class you can read them on the stems. Sadly, plants are terrible spellers, but Miss Level has worked out a great many cures this way, such as goldenrod being good for jaundice, which turns skin yellow.

* DubInducedPlotHole: The German translator translated the strong Scottish dialect of the Wee Free Men as perfectly fine high German. Since the second book begins with a glossary the same has been omitted from the German translation, safe for a short paragraph about the special sheel linement, as well as a short sentence containing a new pun that wasn't there in the original.
