* 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.

* MagicFeather: [[spoiler: Walter can't access his Phantom persona without his mask. Eventually, Nanny gives him an "invisible mask" so he can be the Phantom all the time.]]

** 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).

* SituationalSociability: The Opera Ghost behaves ''very'' different when he's acting as the Ghost rather than as his real identity, due to the mask and identity of the Ghost giving him a confidence he otherwise lacks. Some Headology by Granny Weatherax later in the book allows him to be the "Ghost" all the time.



* StealthPun: When Agnes finishes one last yell, going from one side of the audible spectrum to the other, Nanny Ogg remarks "''Now'' it's over". [[DontExplainTheJoke Agnes is very large, and they're in an opera.]]
