* BuxomIsBetter: Sacharissa is apparently "possessed of certain attributes that never go out of style", and believes that a corset and a plain dress will tone those endowments down. They do not.

** This gets even funnier several books later, when [[Discworld/GoingPostal Moist]] considers William "a pompous windbag with a bum stuffed full of tweed." He likes Sacharissa, though. Vimes himself has a rant in ''Discworld/{{Thud}}!'' about how the ''Times'' seems to know about goings-on in the Watch almost before ''he'' does.

* ConvenientComa: Vetinari is unconscious for a few days after getting a TapOnTheHead. Igor describes it as just being asleep and suggests he might just be making up for [[TheSleepless all the sleep he usually doesn't get]].

Added DiffLines:

* GoodIsNotSoft: Goodmountain mentions that the dwarfs occasionally have entire wars fought underground, where a common tactic is dropping tunnel roofs on each other to crush their enemies to death. When a horrified Sacharissa objects that she'd heard dwarfs were law-abiding, Goodmountain clarifies that they are - they're just not very merciful.

Added DiffLines:

* MultiGenderedSplitPersonalities: The novel introduces Altogether Andrews, a beggar with no less than 8 different personalities, one of which - named Lady Hermione - is female. They activate at random, and can apparently communicate with one another. And none of them respond to "Andrews".

Added DiffLines:

* TyopOnTheCover: Some in-universe examples, like "56 People Hurt In Brawl" (it was meant to be "5-6" but the hyphen was omitted) and of course all the misspellings of "The Truth shall make ye free." Even the ''name'' of "The Ankh-Morpork Times" derived from a misprint; the dwarf turned "Ankh-Morpork Items" into "Times" and William decided he liked it that way.

*ArchnemesisDad: William and his father had a bad relationship from the beginning, even before William learned that Lord de Worde is behind the plot.

** Pterry may be deliberately setting up three of Ankh-Morpork's most influential political voices (Commander Vimes, Moist von Lipwig, and William de Worde) to dislike and/or distrust one another, as this is how Vetinari always keeps power-blocks within his city from uniting to challenge his authority.
---> '''Vetinari:''' In return, however, I must ask you not to upset Commander Vimes... ''(cough)'' more than necessary.
---> '''William:''' I'm sure we can all pull together, sir.
---> '''Vetinari:''' Oh, I do hope not. I really do hope not. Pulling together is the aim of despotism and tyranny. Free men pull in all kinds of directions. It's the only way to make progress.
** It helps that none of them want the top job. Vimes hates exercising or interacting with any kind of authority outside of the Watch. William says that there have been far worse rulers than Vetinari and fights to clear his name (and he wouldn't want to be Patrician because it would make him too much like his father). Moist throws himself in front of a pie because, as a known felon, he would not survive in a post-Vetinari city. Vetinari's installed powerful figures who both owe him their success and want him to stay exactly where he is.
