** Seeing Angua referring to anyone as "lunch" and changing in public (as she's seen doing in the trailer) is ''very'' jarring compared to her representation in the books, where she's an vegetarian who hates the impulses brought on by being a werewolf, and the only time she makes a corny joke about it was SelfDeprecation.

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Vetinari says this to Moist before the big race. That's why he added the 'if you lose than you will be hanged.' condition.

* IronicName: Adora Belle Dearheart is anything but adorable. Most people who know her call her "Killer". Her love interest, Moist von Lipwig, calls her "Spike". Mind you, [[GoodIsNotNice she's a wonderful person, just not a very likable one]].

* DeadlyEnvironment: When Vetinari is meeting his new BoxedCrook Moist von Lipwig, he tells Moist that if he doesn't like the offer he [[SchmuckBait can simply walk out that door]]. When Moist goes to check, the door leads to a deep pit full of spikes.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: During the epilogue, [[spoiler:the narration notes that Vetinari gives Reacher Gilt the same 'angel' speach that he gave Moist at the beginning of the book and that Reacher's reaction is one of 'increased puzzlement'. It's implied Reacher is simply too crooked to understand the concept of redemption, underlining how he and Moist are very different after all.]]

* AssholeVictim: Discussed; Moist believes himself to be a decent person because the only people he pulled his cons on were those who "deserved it". Mr. Pump, however, points out that assholes, when they lose something, tend to recover their losses by taking it from other people as well -- and ''they'' usually aren't as fussy about whether the people they're taking it from deserve it or not:

* CutleryEscapeAid: Moist von Lipwig manages to secrete a spoon in his cell, which he uses to gradually chip away at the ancient mortar around one of the blocks in the wall. He finishes on the night before he's due to be hanged, only to find a freshly mortared block right behind it, with a shiny new spoon in the gap. Apparently the jailers regard false hope as a healthy prisoner activity.

---> 'Oh.' Miss Maccalariat hesitated, and then remembered herself. 'Er, in that case . . . perhaps a teensy bit quieter, then?' 'Certainly, Miss Maccalariat,' said Moist obediently. 'And perhaps not the K-word?' 'No, Miss Maccalariat.' 'And also not the L-word, the T-word, both of the S-words, the V-word and the Y-word.' 'Just as you say, Miss Maccalariat.' '“Murdering conniving bastard of a weasel” was acceptable, however.' 'I shall remember that, Miss Maccalariat.'
