* CerebusRetcon: Vimes' previous joke that he used to be "blackboard monitor" in ''Discworld/TheFifthElephant'' suddenly isn't so funny any more when he ends up dealing with some ''very'' fundamentalist dwarves, who attach the same stigma to someone wiping out words as, say, a human would to someone who defaces sacred items.

** When Vetinari and Drumknott discuss who would win between Vimes and a semi-demonic elemental force of vengeance as old as the universe, they conclude it's too close to call.

* AllTrollsAreDifferent: Trolls in Literature/{{Discworld}} are made out of metamorphorical rock (a portmanteau of the words metaphor and metamorphic). Once in a while a special [[spoiler: diamond]] troll will turn up; these trolls tend to be the [[spoiler: kings and leaders]] of the troll race. [[spoiler: This is because diamond trolls are capable of regulating their internal body temperature; troll brains, being silicon-based, work better and faster the colder they get, so diamond trolls are naturally the smartest trolls around]]

* NotSoDifferent: Mr. Shine invokes this subtly on Vimes when the latter questions his concern for Brick:
-->'''Vimes''': Why do you care about some troll?
-->'''Shine''': Why do you care about some dwarf?

* MuggingTheMonster: More like mugging the ''family'' of monsters. [[spoiler:A suicidal attack of dark dwarves on Vimes' family did not take into account [[BattleButler Willikins]] and his ice knife, the symbol of the Summoning Dark forming and terrifying one of the attackers into stumbling off a balustrade or the fact that a flamethrower makes for a bad weapon against a dragon breeder in full protective gear, surrounded by her dragons who take the attack as a [[NoKillLikeOverkill challenge]]...]]

* UpperClassTwit: Averted with the museum curator, who despite speaking so posh that Nobby and Colon can barely understand him and being flabbergasted at their (lack of) knowledge of art is never demeaning to either of them.

He is also shown to not be at all stupid, as when Fred highlights the major clues about how the painting was stolen (that took him a long time to put together even after being told what to look for,) Sir Reynold preempts Fred's explanation and immediately works out what must have happened.

*** ''Discworld/NightWatch'' also had the ArcWords "at this time, in this place" in reference to the Glorious Revolution, eventually being used by Vetinari to inform Vimes that he will tolerate his defiance because the significance of the day warrants it. Near the end of the book, Vimes uses the same words in a demand to [[spoiler: the Low King]], who complies for similar reasons to Vetinari.
