* ProphecyTwist: The bats outline the plot of the entire main trilogy early in the first book, but in [[VaguenessIsComing such a hopelessly cryptic fashion]] that the information is functionally useless. The prequels include a mouse prophesied to die surrounded by the sound of bells - [[spoiler: rustling bluebells, not city bells as he suspected]] - and Leech's discovery that [[spoiler: his brother, Jupiter, will be known as "lord of all". He kills Jupiter and takes the name for himself.]]

The SequelHook has yet to be followed up on - instead, the 2000s saw the release of two ''Deptford Mouselets'' books, set apart from the main action. Each of them took place in the year before ''The Dark Portal''. The first, ''Fleabee's Fortune'', was about a [[TokenHeroicOrc token pacifist rat]], and the second, ''Whortle's Hope'', was about a fieldmouse from Fennywolde. There were to be two more entitled ''Ogmund's Gift'' and ''Twit's Progress''. The former was to introduce the prophet bats' unruly nephew who'd rather not have to deal with his growing magic, and the latter would describe Twit's journey from his home in Fennywolde to visit his cousin in Deptford. For some reason, neither of these have been published yet, though it has been nearly ten years since the publication of ''Whortle's Hope''. However, with Robin Jarvis lately returning to the worlds of his other classics, ''Hagwood'' and ''The Whitby Witches'' (the former having only one book with a cliffhanger that remained unresolved for thirteen years), it is possible that the remaining ''Deptford Mouselets'' books and the grand finale of ''The Deptford Mice'' may finally see the light of day in the not too distant future.

The SequelHook has yet to be followed up on - instead, the 2000s saw three ''Deptford Mouselets'' books, set apart from the main action. The first was about a [[TokenHeroicOrc token pacifist rat]], the second, a fieldmouse from Fennywolde, and the third introduced the prophet bats' unruly nephew who'd rather not have to deal with his growing magic.
