Added DiffLines:

**Several, though not all, of the main protagonists are [[RedOni Red Onis]] to BlueOni best friends. Examples:
***RedOni Kaya and BlueOni Speaking Rain.
***RedOni Kit and BlueOni Ruthie.
***RedOni Samantha and BlueOni Nellie, although Samantha's RedOni traits are less pronounced than usual (justified because of expectations placed on girls in the Edwardian Era).
***RedOni Cecile and BlueOni Marie Grace, although this is somewhat subverted/averted. Both girls share a main protagonist role, in addition to being best friends.

* ChekhovsGun: In "Danger at the Zoo, A Kit Mystery", Kit's friend Stirling is leading a Zoo Guide tour and introduces the crowd to Rascal the baboon, who, [[FaceOfAThug despite his scary looks]], [[FriendToAllChildren is so fond of children]] that [[PapaWolf he throws things when he sees children being roughly handled]]. Later in the story, one of the zoo policemen grabs Kit, who he thinks is up to no good, preventing her from chasing the thieves who have been breaking into the zoo; as luck would have it, he does this in front of Rascal's cage and the baboon beans him in the head with a thrown ball, causing him to release Kit.
