* CharacterDevelopment: Edmund's TookALevelInKindness from the previous book stays here. He decides to trust Lucy despite the others' doubt and puts faith in her.


Added DiffLines:

* OmniscientMoralityLicense:
** Susan is shown to be in the wrong in that she refuses to believe that Lucy has seen Aslan even though thanks to the events of the previous books, the four Pevensies were aged, then rapidly deaged and returned to their normal life. Peter is also understandably skeptical though he eventually believes his sister.
** A similar thing happens with the bitter Narnia citizens left to fend for themselves. They don't have any reason to believe in the Pevensies initially, and yet they were expected to have blind faith.


Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: As it turns out, when four monarchs ruling a kingdom together vanish on a hunt, political chaos will ensue. When the Pevensies return hundreds of years later, the Narnian citizens that oppose them are understandably bitter.

Edmund explains that having been the loudest doubter before their last adventure, he owes it to Lucy to be the first to trust her this time.

* BadassBeard: The Telmarines. It comes with the pirate territory.



* DeusExMachina: Aslan comes in during the last battle to help the Narnians win after they began to lose hope.



* GenderFlip: The BBC adaptation cast a woman to play Trufflehunter the badger.

* ReversePsychology: How Miraz is goaded into accepting Peter's challenge even though it was to his advantage not to duel. In the book, he seems not to realise that he's being manipulated, while in the movie he's clearly aware of it, but feels he has to do it anyway to save face.

* {{Tearjerker}}: The Pevensies' sad realization that all their friends from the first book/movie are long gone.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Miraz's wife and son are never mentioned after Caspian's escape in the book. This creates a bit of a [[FridgeLogic plot hole]] if you consider that, by Telmarine reckoning anyway, the baby is Miraz's rightful son and heir, yet no one even on Miraz's side takes him into account in their plans. The film shows them going [[spoiler:to live on the Pacific island on Earth with the other Telmarines]].

* VisibleToBelievers: When the Pevensie children are returned to Narnia for the first time, at first only Lucy sees Aslan. Edmund doesn't see Aslan but he believes her (since she was right about Narnia [[Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe the first time]]) but the older Peter & Susan veto Lucy, thinking that either she's fibbing or imagining things. But after they've been lost for hours they finally give in and let Lucy lead the way - Lucy is following Aslan. Slowly, Edmund & Peter start to see him. Eventually even Susan sees him, even though she sees him before she admits to it.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Nikibrik pointing out the flaw in the thinking that the Magic Horn is TooAwesomeToUse. The other characters actually agree with his criticism and decide that he's right and that they should use the horn sooner rather than later - which is what turns out to set in motion the events of the entire book.
