* MortalityPhobia: Greyhald Spold, the world's oldest wizard, begins worrying about the encroachment of death, and devises an elaborate hiding place, magically and physically impermeable, in the hope of keeping the Grim Reaper at bay. Unfortunately, he neglected to take into account the problem of obtaining fresh air in an impermeable chamber...

* [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys Everythings Better With Primates]]: This is the book where the Librarian of Unseen University is turned into an orangutan. Oddly - to those who have read the later books first - he's very upset at no longer being human.

* Metaphorgotten: PlayedWith. It is mentioned a few times that past Patriarch Olaf Quimby II passed measures that required authors to be literal, so Pratchett must either further explain his metaphors or take them back.

* CharacterShilling: Twoflower loves going on about how great a wizard Rincewind is. [[ParodiedTrope Rincewind can't even spell the word correctly.]]

* CharacterShilling: Twoflower ''still'' loves going on about how great a wizard Rincewind is. [[ParodiedTrope Rincewind can't even spell the word correctly.]]]]
* CommonalityConnection: Trymon and Rincewind are completely different people, but they both think the magic rules The Disc rely on are incredibly silly. At the climax the former tries to tempt the latter by offering a future with a more sensible set of physical laws but Rincewind recognizes Trymon is just ranting by this point.

* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: Bethan is actually rather upset when she's saved from being a human sacrifice. (Partly, it would seem, because she'd maintained her chastity in anticipation of being a sacrifice, and could have been dating instead.)
