* FunnyBackgroundEvent: During the final confrontation, while [[spoiler:Teatime is threatening Susan with Death's sword]], Death is awkwardly holding a cookie he'd picked up and hadn't gotten to eat. He even glances down at it a couple times, as if he's wondering if he could get away with eating it when nobody's looking.

Added DiffLines:
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Mr. Teatime is introduced having entered head assassin Lord Downey's chamber undetected, by climbing down the chimney. He plays with Downey's dog while he waits to be noticed. This shows he's both a badass and has a whimsical, childlike personality. His conversation with Downey shows the other aspect of his personality.

* LeavingFoodForSanta: On the Discworld, children leave out a pork pie and a glass of sherry for the Hogfather, and a turnip for the hogs that pull his sleigh. Albert deals with the pies and sherry (particularly enthusiastically when it comes to the sherry).

Not completely sure I have the right trope.
Added DiffLines:
* BlackAndGreyMorality: Teatime tries to invoke this, reasoning that anyone fighting Death would be seen as the good guy by default. He overestimates the terror of an animate skeleton (especially when it's just sitting in a chair drinking tea) and underestimates his own unsettling nature.

* {{Tomboy}}: The first child who Death meets in the Hogfather's Grotto is a little girl. Her mother wants her to get girly things like dolls and dresses, but once she realizes Death might actually give her what she wants, she quickly asks for a large set of army men and a sword. Death gives her both, but turns the sword to wood at the mother's protests.

* CurbStompBattle: This is, of course, the only possible outcome when you piss off ''TheGrimReaper'' himself. [[spoiler: The book does not actually ''describe'' what happens, exactly. All we know is that he was up against an army of Auditors... and then he [[CriticalExistenceFailure wasn't]].]]
