* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:The Bard. First a ButtMonkey, is dragged along by Cohen and threatened with death. He ends the story by threatening Harry with death, throwing his payment (a fortune in rubies) into the snow, picking up a lyre he handcrafted from a sharpened stick, string, and a ''skull'', and singing, apparently, the greatest song ever. The final illustration shows him wearing leather furs and a sword on his hip, to contrast the bright red and yellow he was wearing at the start. Even the lighting around him seems to have gotten more HeavyMetal.]]

** Earlier, Carrot delivered this stellar could-be-an-example when Rincewind tells him that he'd seen his life flash before his eyes the ''last'' time he went over the Edge:
--> '''Carrot:''' Well, perhaps this time we'll see something more interesting.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: During the priests' gathering at the Temple of Small Gods, it's mentioned that the paintings of gods and heroes on the ceiling could use some repairs. At the story's end, Leonard is tasked to re-paint the whole thing, and does so in record time.

* AffablyEvil: [[CardCarryingVillain Evil Harry Dread]] stays on good terms with the Silver Horde - he just happens to [[PunchClockVillain technically be on the other side.]]

We start with Cohen the Barbarian and most of the Silver Horde (minus Old Vincent, who choked to death on a cucumber), last seen in ''Discworld/InterestingTimes'', setting out on a quest. You see, Fingers-Mazda, the first hero, [[ClassicalMythology stole fire from the gods]] and the Horde feel that is only fair, as the ''last'' of the true barbarian heroes, to return the stolen fire.

* NoNameGiven: The Bard is never named. "No one remembers the singer, but the song remains." Ironically, he seems to be inspired by [[ClassicalMythology Orpheus]] "famous of name."
