* TheOnlyBeliever: Played with: plenty of Borgovians believe in the Duchess, but within the party itself, everyone only pays her lip service... except for Wazzer, who ''truly'' believes.

** There is planty of resemblance to both Yugoslavia and the old Austro-Hungarian Empire bits of it used to be bits of. The country name "Zlobenia" is a dead giveaway, being a simple mashing of "zlo" (evil) and Slovenia, just like a native german speaker would mispronounce it. Borogravia could stand in for any of the Yugoslav (or Austro-Hungarian) states on a bad day.

The constant wars which plagued the region for centuries, the way citizens are practically only there to be servants and cannon fodder, and the ever more bizzare religious zealotry is also right on the money.

* TruthInTelevision: As part of her disguise, Polly has practised peeing standing up, and is very proud of herself for having "kept her feet dry". Female-to-male transsexuals can tell you that this is a very legitimate and shared pride.

* LoonyLaws: The god Nuggan has been reduced to this, with a list of Abominations that now includes babies, garlic, blue, rocks, ears and accordion players, although Vimes for one agrees with him on that last one.

* GargleBlaster: In an early scene in a bar, Carborundum orders the troll version: the Electric Floor-Banger. It's well-named, they find.

** In a later scene, Jackrum procures a bottle of rotgut liquor made by a MilitaryMoonshiner, known as "hangman" because "one drop and you're dead". He doesn't ''drink'' it, he just washes his mouth out with it and splashes some on his face to seem like a harmless drunk.

* AmbiguousGenderIdentity: [[spoiler:Sergeant Jackrum]] has been in the military as a SweetPollyOliver for most of his life, and after leaving the military, decides to continue presenting as a man. The story continues to refer to him as "he" even after TheReveal, thus this trope.
