* GreaterScopeParagon:
** In some of the books, Martin the Warrior takes on this role after he has died, from either an invisible influence acting through the heroes to an occasional SpiritAdvisor in dreams. However, his power from beyond the grave is limited. Though Martin's legendary sword is powerful in the hands of a hero, he himself warns that nothing stops any villain who obtains it from using it for evil.
** It is sometimes implied that the Badger Lord fortress Salamandastron has some kind of supernatural influence on it, as its forge's wall is full of carved images of both history and prophecy, which no one knows where they come from. On occasion it's been shown that badgers under the effects of [[TheBerserker Bloodwrath]] may carve the prophecies on the walls with their claws, but still no one knows where they get their visions.

* SomewhereAMammalogistIsCrying: Mostly averted, except for one thing...ermine and stoats are treated as two seperate species. An ermine is just a stoat in it's winter coloration.

* UnderhandedHero: Characters' morality is pretty much determined by their species, so while heroic species like otters and mice can be thieves and pirates, they only target vermin.



** Tsarmina in ''Mossflower'' also does this. Granted she's being driven insane by a constant dripping noise and the fact that everything she tries to destroy the resistance fails.

* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Wildcats get hit hard with this in ''High Rhulain.'' One wildcat villain? Some of the most dangerous foes in the series, being basically the vermin equivalent of badgers. But a whole army of them? They fall just as easy as rats or weasels.

* NobleDemon: Verdauga Greeneyes is willing to negotiate with the woodlanders instead of going to war with them, although his reign HAS made life difficult for the woodlanders. Unfortunately for him, his daughter Tsarmina kills him and earns the title of the BigBad instead.

** Cap'n Tramun Clogg was the sole survivor of the final battle in ''Martin the Warrior'', but went insane and spent the rest of his days hanging around Marshank's ruins and talking to corpses.

** Any vermin who [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere successfully desert their army]], such as Sneezewort, Lousewort, [[spoiler: Ashleg, Ripfang, Grand Fragorl]], and more.more, though in Ashleg's case he deserts the army because among other things Tsarmina made him walk ahead of her troops in the desert sun.



* KarmicDeath: Many of the main villains had very karmic deaths. Examples: [[spoiler:Cluny was crushed by the bell that had earlier awakened him from his nightmares; hydrophobic Tsarmina drowned; Malkariss was stoned to death by the very creatures he had enslaved; Gabool was stung to death by his pet scorpion, whom he had used to execute foes previously; Ublaz was bitten by his pet snake; Princess Kurda fell and stabbed herself on her own broken sword; Riggu Felis was killed by the same barbed star that he earlier used to trap Pandion; Vilaya fell on her own poisoned dagger, which she had used to kill numerous characters.]]
