** And in turn, moon dragons, which are a more aerodynamic version of swamp dragons who fly by firing out the other end and using their flame as a jet. It is mentioned that the dragon Errol in ''Guards! Guards!'', who used the same method to fly, might have been an evolutionary throwback.

** And Offler, one of the oldest gods there is, notes that he only got that way by recognizing that a god [[PetTheDog needs to offer his people something more than a lack of thunderbolts]].

* BadassCreed[=/=]GallowsHumor[=/=]PretentiousLatinMotto: Played with. The heroes about to journey to Dunmanifestin have patches made with a Latin motto: "Morituri Nolumus Mori." Rincewind thought them up. With something between amusement and disdain, Vetinari requests he translate the motto, which proves to be "We who are about to die, don't want to." Vetinari lets it stand, because it's the perfect motto for a mission to save the world.

* MythologyGag: When Ponder Stibbons explains how the end of magic will instantly annihilate the Disc, this is referencing multiple statements from the early books, especially Discworld/TheLightFantastic and Discworld/TheColorOfMagic, about how the Disc can only exist because it exists in a magic-rich environment, where raw magic can take up the slack for its otherwise weak and underdeveloped physics.

* RageAgainstTheHeavens: What motivates Cohen and his Horde. Averted by Carrot, who's obviously appalled by the deities' attitudes but restricts himself to a StealthInsult.

* RageAgainstTheHeavens: What motivates Cohen and his Horde.Horde, for making them so good at that they do that they could live to grow old, weak and see a world that doesn't need them anymore. Averted by Carrot, who's obviously appalled by the deities' attitudes but restricts himself to a StealthInsult.

* SocietyOnEdgeEpisode: Averted. The Disc endangered once again, thanks to Cohen the Barbarian's RageAgainstTheHeavens. Unlike the previous examples, Ankh-Morpork's powers-that-be manage to keep the peace and work together to confront the problem.

** The Silver Horde discusses finding maps, keys and first aid kits just sort of lying around in the dungeons, and never speculating who'd put them there or why up until that moment. Inexplicably helpful item placement will sound very familiar to anybody who's ever played an old first-person shooter. (Sir Pterry is, of course, an avowed fan of ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}''. And of course, older adventure games that developed the trope.)
