* Jackrum's reason for getting stuck on recruiting party despite his in-universe MemeticBadass status: he got his leg sliced open, then ''bit'' the doctor who tried to treat him, and tended to the injury personally, allowing Froc to slap him with recruiting duty as a "reward" while he was laid up. While it's easy to pass off as a throwaway gag to enhance Jackrum's {{Badass}} status, it becomes foreshadowing when you realize that [[spoiler:to treat his leg, the (presumably male) doctor would have either had to take Jackrum's pants off, or at least get close enough to notice that there were one or two things either missing or sock-enhanced. No wonder Jackrum bit him and did the work himself!]]
** There's also a throwaway reference to a soldier talking about the time his dad got in a bar fight with Jackrum, and Jackrum apparently shrugged off getting [[GroinAttack kicked in the nadgers]], which means he's either got BallsOfSteel, or [[spoiler: as it turns out, Jackrum doesn't ''have'' that sort of equipment.]]
** And why is Jackrum so big? Yeah, the whole 'jolly fat man' thing is handy for ObfuscatingStupidity, [[spoiler: but it's also a convenient way to hide her chest.]]
*** In fact, it's a pretty natural development that Jackrum got so fat: [[spoiler: as she confesses to Polly, she was "never really a wall painting", showing her a portrait of herself and her beau before they went off to war. In fact, much like Lancre, Borogravia is ''just'' the sort of place to breed BrawnHilda types; in a tough, harsh climate dependent on farming, a [[StoutStrength big and beefy woman who can easily handle livestock]] is much more useful, and much like in Lancre, Borogravian men undoubtedly [[BigBeautifulWoman regard fat women as beautiful]], since they clearly must be very good at cooking.]]

* Nuggan was nothing more than a side joke in ''Discworld/TheLastHero'', a god whose followers Offler pities because he banned '''both''' chocolate ''and'' garlic. (One or the other might be harsh but acceptable, but ''both''?) But in ''Discworld/MonstrousRegiment'' we find out he is a [[spoiler:dead god, and all the the things he "abominates" are nothing but the echo of a dead god]].
** It may be that the events of ''The Last Hero'' '''led''' to that state of affairs; Offler pitied his followers then, and it got ''even worse'' afterwards.
