** The Sultan's "organ" ''might'' just be a ShoutOut to Terry Jones' mouse organ from ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', comprising a row of mice, strapped to a board, which ''supposedly'' squeaked musically when hit with hammers. (Both are based on the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katzenklavier Katzenklavier]], a conjectural (and thankfully never realized) instrument in which nails would be driven into the tails of a series of different-sized cats in order to play a tune. Or just create an almighty ruckus and be mean to animals along the way. The Sultan's instrument probably owes far more to the [[TheElricSaga Melnibonean]] music form, since both involve torturing slaves.)

* ExactWords: For his part of the wager, the Sultan said that the Baron could take as much of the Sultan's treasure as the strongest man could carry. Unfortunately, the Sultan did not anticipate that the Baron's strongman Albrecht would be able to carry out all of it all at once.

* TreasureRoom: The Sultan's treasury. Of course, after the Baron collected his winnings from his wager with the Sultan, it wasn't so much of a treasure room as it was just a regular room.

* GravityIsAHarshMistress: "Gravitational Cognizance" variant. The Baron, Sally, and Berthold are climbing down a rope from the moon to the earth. They find that the rope is too short and will leave them far too high above the earth; but the Baron produces more rope and instructs Berthold to tie it to the end so they can continue climbing down. And where did the additional rope come from? ''The Baron cut it from the top of the rope on which they were already climbing.'' They don't start to fall until Sally thinks about that for a bit.
