** In the beginning, Vorbis turns Om over in the sun to see how long it'll take for him to die, and Om thinks "I'm on my back, and getting hotter, and I'm going to ''die''..." Then, during the climax, when Vorbis [[spoiler:attempts to execute Brutha on the iron turtle, Brutha thinks ''I'm on my back and getting hotter and I'm going to die...'']]

* ThereIsAGod: PlayedForDrama; the sight of [[spoiler: Brutha being saved from execution and martyrdom by a falling tortoise (Om) striking Vorbis on the head]] is enough of a miracle to instantly restore Om to his full power.

* DarkerAndEdgier: There's plenty of humour here but the jokes don't come as thick and fast as they do in earlier {{Discworld}} books. That's because the narrative deals with subjects like torture and religious intolerance that weren't easily laughed off on publication in 1992 any more than they are today. Small Gods marks the beginning of a different tone in the Discworld series, one with more social commentary.

* BaitAndSwitchGunshot: Done with crossbows when Didactylos is on the run from Vorbis's soldiers. One of the soldiers lines up an easy shot, there's the twang of a crossbow bolt, and the soldier falls, having been shot by another soldier who's a member of the resistance.
