* AsymmetricDilemma: The footnote on the first page about the Ankh-Morporkian system of government notes that "Everyone was entitled to vote, unless disqualified by reason of age or not being Lord Vetinari." If you can't vote because your city is ruled by a tyrant, why even mention age?

** The reference to ''RomeoAndJuliet'' gets {{lampshaded}} near the end of the book, when [[spoiler:Glenda]] comments about how an in-universe play (named ''[[StarCrossedLovers Starcrossed]]'') is [[ThisIsReality unrealistic]]. (The play in question has been written by Hwel, [[Discworld/WyrdSisters a character from an earlier book]] who is the Disc's Creator/WilliamShakespeare.)
** The first few pages are an extended ShoutOut[=/=]parody of DanBrown.

* AllPsychologyIsFreudian: Mr. Nutt's method of psychotherapy revolves around acknowledging repressed memories and emotions (especially vis-a-vis paternal/maternal conflict), and is based entirely on Uberwaldian philosophy which comes complete with nonsensical Germanesque names. He even adopts the stock gag-Austrian accent (with "ze" for "the"), explaining that it's "soothing".

* DemotedToExtra: Rincewind is not a key part of the team's strategy, much to his relief. Vimes and Angua only show up as antagonists. William de Worde has a cameo as proto-announcer for the match. The [[GoingPostal Postmaster-General]] is mentioned as waiting to see Vetinari, but makes no actual appearance.
