* EvenEvilHasStandards: Lady Meserole was clearly as power-hungry a schemer as anyone else, whose nephew suggested that she let him kill Keel for expediency (though she only gave him empty threats). But when she sees [[spoiler:Snapcase turn around and order his death despite the amnesty]] she's so disgusted she [[spoiler:orders Vetinari to protect Keel, and he happily obliges]].

* AlmightyJanitor: Discussed twice. When young Vetinari expresses disbelief that a man as clever as John Keel/Vimes is a mere sergeant, Madam points out that it's the perfect rank, giving him the right balance of authority and responsibility. The author then notes this a second time during the actual revolution; the military simply would not work were it not for the few intelligent people in unglamorous yet vital positions.

* PassiveAggressiveKombat: [[Averted]] with Lords Selachii and Venturi, who due to their [[FeudingFamilies history]] have to avoid any topic that they might possibly disagree on. Leading to conversational topics like "I see you are standing up."

* MeetTheNewBoss: Said by Mr Slant and Dr Follett after [[spoiler:Winder dies and Snapcase becomes the new Patrician]]. In Latin, no less.

* DoomedMoralVictor: Parodied, as the villains consider "You may take our lives, but you'll never take our freedom" to be the dumbest revolutionary slogan ever. Specifically, Carcer replies "Wrong," and cue the hail of crossbow bolts.

** A literal example when Vimes spots someone hiding in a doorway because their black clothing makes the shadows too dark. This reinforces young Vetinari's decisions on clothing later in the story.
