* MagicWand: Standard issue for a Fairy Godmother. Interestingly, you actually control it by twisting the rings in the handle to change the settings; Magrat only ever manages to transform things into pumpkins.

** Later on, with a reluctant Nanny Ogg, the witches agree to do this with [[spoiler:Greebo, her one-eyed cat. Greebo handles it fairly well, since he retains his catlike instincts and ferocity. He can also get all the milk he likes from the kitchen.

* MamaBear: Subverted. [[spoiler:Mrs. Gogol wants revenge on Lilith for what the latter did to her daughter Ella and to the Baron. Granny Weatherwax forces her to not do it because Genua's had enough magical interference.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PossessionImpliesMastery: Averted; Magrat never works out how to use the wand she received from Desiderata and is unable to ever do more than transform things into pumpkins. She's still able to get some use out of it, first freeing some dwarves trapped in a cave-in by turning the rocks to pumpkin and later sabotaging the coach meant to take Ella to the ball by, ironically, turning it into a pumpkin.

* InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja: Magrat can't quite get this one to work, somehow. And the other two keep snarking at her lovingly memorized {{Ice Cream Koan}}s, too.
