*** And doesn't Vetinari say at one point that he's rather shatter the most expensive Ming vase than see one hair be harmed on that "most ancient and venerable head?"

*** Vetinari knows what EVERYONE in Ankh-Morpork eats for breakfast.

** There's also the fact that Vetinari keeps him locked up in an attic, with Leonard's implicit consent. And their conversations are rather easygoing, at least for Vetinari - in ''Jingo'' he talks to Leo about the current political situation and misses a key piece of information in Leonard's side of the conversation, which is quite unlike him.

** Vetinari for his part is equally observant of his employee's habits - for instance, in ''Discworld/MakingMoney'' he knows what Drumknott eats for breakfast, which raises the question of when he had the opportunity to find out.

** Similarly out of context but even this troper, who is fairly critical of most Vetinari/Vimes fanworks or theories, had to raise her eyebrows at this snippet of dialogue from ''Jingo'':

* The restaurant scene in the film of ''GoingPostal'' shows Gilt looming over Moist in a rather creepy way. Adora looks at them in horror and sputters "You ... and him?"

Adora looks at them in horror and sputters "You ... and him?"him?" * As of "Moving Pictures", the Unseen University is "run" by Archchancellor Ridcully, who spends all of his time shooting or shouting at things. He and the Bursar share a relationship very evocative of the HenpeckedHusband trope, with Ridcully ordering around the much meeker Bursar, whilst the Bursar just tries to keep Ridcully in check.

** The adorable and amusing moment when a younger Vetinari reports on seeing Vimes for the first time in an alternative timeline. Looks like Vimes pretty much blew his mind. --->'''Vetinari:''' I can't believe what I saw. I thought he was a thug. And he ''is'' a thug. You can see his muscles thinking for him. But he overrules them moment by moment! I think I saw a genius at work.

** Drumkott's function in the books is as a sounding-board for Vetinari to talk in a relatively open, neutral and honest way (since in his dealings with every active character, from Vimes to Ridcully, there's always an element of manipulation going on). The result on the page is that Vetinari comes across as being quite close and trusting towards his secretary. Drumknott in turn is utterly loyal and attentive to Vetinari's habits, to the point that in ''Discworld/Snuff'' it's mentioned that most people would consider Drumknott's ability to interpret his master's thoughts as 'magic'.

Cleaned up that ugly paragraph a bit
** Lord Vetinari/Drumknott is a popular ship. Drumkott's function in the books is as a sounding-board for Vetinari to talk in a relatively open, neutral and honest way (since in his dealings with every active character, from Vimes to Ridcully, there's always an element of manipulation going on). The result on the page is that Vetinari comes across as being quite close and trusting towards his secretary. Drumknott is utterly loyal and attentive to Vetinari's habits. In ''Discworld/TheTruth'' when it appears that Vetinari has had a breakdown and stabbed Drumknott, the latter's reaction is to be embarrassed on behalf of his employer. Vetinari for his part is equally observant of his employee's habits (for instance, in ''Thud'' he knows what Drumknott eats for breakfast, which raises the question of when he had the opportunity to find out...). Hopes of any canonicity are sadly somewhat [[AbandonShipping dashed]] in ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'' when Vetinari mentions that Drumkott would probably only be interested in 'a young lady prepared to dress up as a manilla envelope'. Drumknott later rather confirms this by showing interest in Lady Margolotta's equally stationary-obsessed librarian. Though, this has not been alluded to since, and happened in what could be interpreted as a rough patch between Vetinari and Drumknott...

** There's also Leonard of Quirm, drawing men with careful attention to their muscles, measuring Colon's "saddlery regions". Given that he's an AffectionateParody of Leonardo da Vinci, who himself was a bit... iffy, this isn't completely surprising.
