* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Vetinari isn't nearly as much a MagnificentBastard as he would eventually become, and as a result, comes off as a bit thick. At the very least he usually has a better grasp of [[KnowWhenToFoldEm knowing when to fold em]]- though presumably his time spent as a small lizard played a large part in developing this instinct.

* ChildrenAreInnocent: It becomes very obvious early on that Coin is not the real villain here, just being manipulated by Ipslore. [[spoiler:When he gets rid of him, he is far more pleasant to be around.]]

* EditorialSynaesthesia / TastesLikePurple: Used with all senses simultaneously, to describe the bizarre reality-twisting effects when supercharged wizards' barrage of spells and counterspells reach critical mass.
** "It looked the way a piano sounds when dropped down a well. It tasted yellow, and felt paisley. It smelled like a total eclipse of the Moon. Of course, closer to the Tower it got ''really'' weird."

* NoManOfWomanBorn: Ipslore's deal with Death that he can have a kind of life until Coin throws away his staff. Death specifically notes that every prophecy must have some kind of loophole, however small, as the only absolute certainty is Death himself.
* NotTheFallThatKillsYou: Referenced when Rincewind is on a FlyingCarpet and says he's "afraid of grounds." When asked "don't you mean heights," he replies that it's the grounds that kill you.

* RealityWarper: Coin can do pretty much anything. [[AGodAmI Anything.]] Including imprisoning the entire Discworld pantheon.
* RecursiveReality: At one point, the supporting cast end up inside the lamp that they themselves are carrying. The genie asks them not to think too hard about it, as the trick relies on the laws of physics not catching on.

* ThisBananaIsArmed: Played with. Rincewind is desparate enough to attack Coin's staff with...[[SockItToThem a half-brick in a sock]]. Not that it actually works or anything, but Coin is so fascinated by the concept (half-bricks in socks don't ever really occur to you when you have limitless magic at your disposal) that he spares Rincewind.

* WoobieDestroyerofWorlds: Coin,.
* TheWorfEffect: Kind of a hindsight example, in that Coin easily dispatches Lord Vetinari, that most Magnificent of {{Magnificent Bastard}}s. But at the time the book was written, the Patrician's character had not yet been developed to this, being merely an intelligent politician rather than the [[GodModeSue nigh omnipotent]] figure of the later series, so it was probably unintentional.

* AccidentalVentriloquism: When Rincewind is thrown into the snake pit, a voice speaks to him out of the gloom, and he assumes at first that it's a snake talking before he realizes that the previous person to be thrown in is still alive.

* LamarckWasRight: Conina somehow inherited Cohen's lightning reflexes and tendency towards violence, which is a pity because she'd much prefer hairdressing.

* HeroicBSOD: Rincewind, upon returning to the Library after Coin orders it to be burned. The description is tragic: he lunges into the ashes, scrabbling around for anything familiar, bitterly lamenting the destruction.

But at the time the book was written, the Patrician's character had not yet been developed to this, being merely an intelligent politician rather than the [[GodModeSue nigh omnipotent]] figure of the later series, so it was probably unintentional. Although, given his remark about how a wise man would ''want'' to be safely locked in a dungeon if the wizards took control, it can be argued that Vetinari's transformation into a lizard wasn't wholly to his disadvantage under the circumstances. And when he was transported to the Unseen University, he was in the process of reading a report of a conversation by the head of the Thieves' Guild that was said in a secret, soundproof room. Coin took him as easily as he did because... well, he's a RealityWarper.
