* PlaceBeyondTime: Gods and demons exist outside of time, and Astfgl travels to the heat death of the universe and back without too much difficulty. It's mentioned that in theory this should make them omniscient, but the universe is so huge and complicated that it's simpler for them to just pick a starting point and watch from there.

This was the last Discworld novel to feature Rincewind (a character whom Terry Pratchett somewhat dislikes, though the fans like him) until the retrospective ''Discworld/InterestingTimes''. It is also the last to feature the early conception of Unseen University, with the staff changing with each book thanks to the wizards' practice of KlingonPromotion.

Sometimes counted as the ninth ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel, although this is where numbering gets tricky as some prefer to count ''Eric'' as a special. It's shorter than most Discworld novels, was published by a different publisher, and was originally intended to be an illustrated work. The title is officially simply ''Eric'', but on most covers it is preceded by the struck-through title ''Faust'', a reference to how the title character is a [[TwiceToldTale parody]] of ''Theatre/DoctorFaustus''.

* Parody: As well as the titular parody of ''Literature/{{Faust}}'', the sequence in Tsort mercilessly sends up UsefulNotes/TheTrojanWar.

* ThreatBackfire: Breaking into the Tsortean citadel via a secret passageway, Laveolus at once recites a prepared speech demanding the enemy's unconditional surrender. As the only person in the room is a small child on a potty, his well-rehearsed demand rather falls flat.

* MindRape: The sheer unmitigated ''boredom'' of Hell under Astfgl's administration is so very implacable that even Rincewind, who normally craves being bored as an alternative to his usual terrifying ordeals, is repelled by the place.

* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: Inverted by Astfgl, who dresses in royal diabolic regalia of his own design ... which is, basically, a kid's cheap Halloween devil-costume, complete with silly hood-mounted hornlets and a trident that keeps falling apart.
