* MonumentalDamage: ''Flashman and the Dragon'' deals with the real-life destruction of the Summer Palace ordered by Lord Elgin, [[LikeFatherLikeSon the son of the same Lord Elgin who "acquired" the marbles]] from Greece.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheRomansHaveDoneForUs: Fraser doesn't deny that the British Empire originated for purely mercenary intentions, and that the benign idea of civilizing the colonizes was a justification added much later. But while being honest about the racism, the plunder and the expansionism of the Empire, he also feels that it did contribute to a great deal of good, especially the work of rank-and-file bureaucrats who governed on the ground.

* BavarianFireDrill: Flashman, certainly later in his career, seems to be rather adept at talking his way out of certain situations. He certainly seems proud of the fact that he once [[NoodleIncident convinced Andrew Jackson]] that he was only there to fix the lightning rod.

* TheAce: Parodied and subverted with Flashman himself. His countrymen see him as this, but in reality he's a DirtyCoward, [[TheCasanova obsessive womaniser]], and overall devoid of morality.

Added DiffLines:

* ADayInTheLimelight: Elspeth in ''Flashman's Lady''. Besides being actively involved in the story for once, her diary entries are also woven into the plot, their romantic tone providing a counterpoint with Harry's tell-all cynicism.

* AntiVillain: Suleiman in ''Flashman's Lady''. While he [[spoiler:kidnaps Elspeth with the intent of forcing her into marriage]], he treats her otherwise honourably and seems to be genuinely in love with her. Plus, it would be difficult to argue that he is a worse man than Flashman.
