Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* 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.

* ThisBananaIsArmed: Played with. Rincewind is desparate enough to attack Coin 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.

* 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. 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.

** Mostly played straight, really - no matter how reluctantly, Rincewind ends up saving the world after all [[spoiler:he even pulls a HeroicSacrifice of sorts by getting stuck in the Dungeon Dimensions so Coin can escape).]] Part of it is because the world would end anyways (along with him) if he didn't. Another part is trying to live up to his status as a wizard.

* TheSoCalledCoward: Played straight, then subverted: Rincewind fights the monstrous Things from the Dungeon Dimensions with a handful of sand in a sock, allowing Coin to escape. Then he runs for his life.
