** {{Jesus}} is also mentioned, but it is unclear if he was just a really powerful Other (perhaps a zero-level, like [[spoiler:Nadya]] or Merlin) or [[PhysicalGod Light itself]].

''Night Watch'' (''Ночной дозор, Nochnoi Dozor'') is a book series by SergeyLukyanenko, a [[SpeculativeFiction speculative fiction]] writer internationally acclaimed, especially in the Eastern Bloc. It had two movie adaptations (both movies mixed elements of this book and its sequel) starring Creator/KonstantinKhabensky, both of which became the top-grossing Russian movie of all time (NightWatch broke all previous records, was briefly beaten by 9th Company, then DayWatch broke 9th Company's new record). Because of this, the series received much attention internationally and spread Lukyanenko's name and work to the West.

** Arina became ''worse'' after becoming a Light Other. She was AntiVillain at worst at her introduction, she's become darker now.

** Creator/HPLovecraft was a low-level Dark Other, who lived the life of a recluse but somehow entered Twilight in his sleep, inspiring the CthulhuMythos.

* FreudWasRight: When arriving to the gathering of all the powerful witches, they reveal that, to be named the Great-Grandmother of all witches, a candidate must touch the Sprout, which, as Anton notes, looks like a wooden dildo. If the Sprout blooms, then its choice is made. The witches offer Nadya the leadership, despite the fact that becoming a witch will turn her into an old hag in a matter of years. However, after grasping the Sprout, nothing happens. She even wonders jokingly if they want her to move her hand up and down a bit (because [[SarcasmMode that's what the father of any teenage girl wants to hear her say]]).

Added DiffLines:

* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Arina's love for [[spoiler: Anton]], who is devoted to his wife.


Added DiffLines:

* StarCrossedLovers: Anton and Svetlana, in a twist on this trope. Fate [[spoiler: or rather, Gesar and Zabulon]] dictates that they fall in love so they can produce TheMessiah, which understandably makes Anton reluctant to pursue a relationship. They wind up happy regardless.

* TheOrder: The Sixth Watch in the eponymous book, a special council convened when [[spoiler:the Two-in-One returns]]. Also known as the Watch of Six, it, obviously, consists of representatives from the six key groups in the world of the Others: Light Others, Dark Others, vampires (with shapeshifters bundled with them), witches, prophets, and Mirrors. Also, for some reason, the new Sixth Watch must also be joined by blood, all tying back to Anton, resulting in the following composition: [[spoiler:Nadia (Anton's daughter) for the Light ones, Zabulon (Anton's grandfather) for the Dark ones, the resurrected Kostya (who drank some of Ariana's blood) for the vampires, Arina for the witches, Kesha (Nadya's boyfriend and blood pact brother) for the prophets, and Yegor (the boy Anton saved in the first book) for the Mirrors]].

** In ''New Watch'', an old Jewish battle mage thinks that Anton is also Jewish based on his last name. Anton defends his family name, claiming it's an old Russian name, that he comes from a family of architects. While this may be another nod to Vladislav Gorodetsky, the real Gorodetsky was of Polish-Ukrainian descent.
