** A key moment comes when he's alone with Granny in a wet, cold forest at night, afraid she's going to freeze to death, and the only dry material he has that could start a fire to warm her up is the paper his Bible... er, Book of Om is printed on. [[spoiler: He recalls a passage that says, "Where there is darkness we will make a great light..." He takes out the Book again... and makes a great light.]]

* ScalingTheSummit: Mustrum Ridcully scales Copperhead, the highest mountain in Lancre, to impress the young witch he's rather taken with. He does it the hard way, climbing up the outside, only to find she (Esme Weatherwax) has flown up there on her broomstick. This apparently illustrates something fundamental about the approach to life taken by wizards and witches. Apparently she flew him back down again, having made her point that there are easier ways to get to the summits of high mountains.

** The Old Count, due to his FairPlayVillain status, ends up as this. Yes, he's a monster who feeds on the living, but he never pretended to be anything else, and fighting him is good sport for the locals.

* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire:
** The vampyres try to portray themselves this way, but completely fail due to their IndustrializedEvil being worse than popping up every few decades to terrorize the populace.

** Granny mentions that Lancre once had a vampire queen, who denied her vampire nature, refusing to drink blood and only getting by on blue steaks. Subverted in that she was a horrific dictator who killed countless people and impaled them on spikes; it's just this had nothing to do with her being a vampire.
--->'''Granny:''' She had no problem with shedding blood, but she drew the line at drinking it.
