* ChekhovMIA: ChekhovsArmory: A truly spectacular number of artifacts, characters, and references from the original books end up coming back later in unexpected ways. A few of them even cross into SequelHook territory and don't get used until ''Dragonwatch''; some examples include [[spoiler: the protection around people [[TheMasquerade unaware of magical creatures]] being weaponized in the climax, and Seth never does get finally getting to use his treasure from Wyrmroost.]] He actually realizes this and is highly disappointed by it, [[spoiler: but he considers using one of the growing tower to give Hugo a permanent home.]]

* InfinityPlusOneSword: VasilisVasilis. It's briefly mentioned that it's one of five similar swords, though the remaining four [[SequelHook have not yet appeared or even been properly mentioned]].


Added DiffLines:

** ''Dragonwatch'' also manages to be this to ''Fablehaven'' as a whole, since it starts where the previous series left off and somehow manages to ''keep building'' on the potentially apocalyptic crisis of Book 5.

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: The fairies to an extreme.

to:

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: The fairies to an extreme. It's noted more than once that light and dark creatures do not correspond to good and evil, no matter how much it seems that way. Even the demons are bound by their own honor code.



* RedPillBluePill

to:

* RedPillBluePill RedPillBluePill: Ignorance is its own kind of protection, and caretakers are very careful about who they let in on the secret for this reason. In the first book, Kendra and Seth have to solve riddles and then seek out the milk themselves.
* RetiredBadass: Dromadus, the only Dragon King to have ever stepped down. The rest of the dragons mock him from a distance and dismiss him as a coward, but none would dare challenge him or disturb his peace.

** ''Dragonwatch'' also has [[spoiler: more than a few demons that wish to see the dragons thwarted, out of revenge if nothing else. Jubaya and Talizar are the first to appear, with Jubaya providing information to Kendra and Talizar offering to tutor Seth, and both are very honest about being entirely self-interested. The heroes don't take the offer in the first book, but it's implied they might later.
