* {{Adorkable}}: Walter Plinge, until [[spoilers: his Ghost persona is made the dominant one.]] Agnes seems disappointed, as Walter was fundamentally ''nicer'' before that happened.

* BigEater: ''Henry Slugg''.

* BigEater: ''Henry Slugg''.Slugg'', especially when he's around real Morporkian food. He's still a hell of an eater in his Enrico Basilica persona, but he's so famous that everywhere he goes, people fall over themselves to specially prepare his "native" Brindisian dishes. When Nanny subtly sees to it that the Opera House catering provides him a meal of regular Ankh-Morpork food, things get messy.



* BrainlessBeauty: Christine.

* BrainlessBeauty: Christine.Christine is a heavy parody of the trope.



* MrFanservice and AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Greebo's human form.

* MrFanservice and AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Greebo's human form.form is described as being almost uncontrollably attractive to human women.



* RagingStiffie: Salzella and Bucket find it ... awkward ... to leave the table after sampling Nanny's Chocolate Delight with Special Secret Sauce, and when they do depart hurriedly, it's in a ''very'' hunched manner.

* RagingStiffie: Salzella and Bucket find it ... awkward ... to leave the table after sampling Nanny's Chocolate Delight with Special Secret Sauce, and when they do depart hurriedly, it's in a ''very'' hunched manner. Interestingly, it doesn't seem to have the same effect on Enrico Basilica, possibly because being face-deep in chocolate sauce has a deeper effect on him than the sauce's aphrodisiac effects normally have on people.

* MundaneUtility: Borrowing is one of Granny's greatest skills in witchcraft, the ability to ride in another being's consciousness, see what it sees, and hear what it hears. At one point, she borrows Nanny Ogg...so she can see herself as she puts her hat back on and adjusts it. Nanny then questions why she doesn't just use a mirror.

** Later, [[spoiler:Walter]] invents the modern musical and Nanny sees some of his ideas, such as [[{{Cats}} an opera about cats]], ''[[Theatre/LesMiserables Miserable Les]]'' and ''[[Film/SevenBridesForSevenBrothers Seven Dwarfs For Seven Other Dwarfs]]''.

Added DiffLines:

* LovePotion: The chocolate sauce recipe Nanny Ogg uses in one scene has ''interesting'' effects on some of the people who try it. There's nothing magical about it, though, it's merely a powerful natural aphrosidiac.

** Although there is also the implication that he was simply scared of her. [[spoiler: She admits that, if she had lost, the first thing she would have done would be to [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu break his arm]].]]

** "Walter Plinge" is a real-life pseudonym used by actors who don't want to be associated with early minor parts (similar to "A.N. Other") and the character's description clearly evokes Frank Spencer from ''Series/SomeMothersDoAveEm'' (Michael Crawford, the first actor who played the musical version's Phantom, was once best known for that role).
