* IHaveThisFriend: The protagonist asks TheMentor what his friend Urs is supposed to do after falling in love with a girl. He's a BadLiar and several times says "I" instead of "Urs". The mentor is nice enough not to mention -- at least at first, but he does eventually lose patience, [[spoiler: especially since Rumo's situation was the talk of the town anyway and everybody knew about it.]]

''Rumo and his Miraculous Adventures'' (''Rumo'' for short) is a book by Creator/WalterMoers set in Zamonia, the setting for ''Literature/TheThirteenAndAHalfLivesOfCaptainBluebear'' and ''Literature/TheCityOfDreamingBooks''. It revolves around Rumo, a wolperting (an intelligent, bipedal, horned dog), after he is kidnapped by [[{{Cyclops}} cyclopean]] pirates. Following his escape from them, he sets off on a journey to find 'the silver thread' that will lead him to true love, but is waylaid repeatedly, most importantly when almost everyone he knows is kidnapped and taken to the hellish underground Netherworld, which he must rescue them from. Along the way he picks up several friends, including Dandelion and Krindle, the talking sword possessed by two very different spirits, Voltozan Smyke the shark grub, and Urs of the Snows, another wolperting and talented chef.

* OnlySaneEmployee: Friftar. This means even more since he has an AxCrazy boss who is able and allowed to kill people with his own teeth if he likes it.

* TheStarscream: [[spoiler:Friftar]] planned to take over Hel's throne by killing Gornab. And he would have succeeded, if it weren't for the Copper Killers' conveniently-timed intervention.

OTOH, he consistently manages to speak all words exactly backwards (by syllable, not by sound or letter).

* BadAss: Rumo, but all wolpertings are superb fighters. * BewareTheNiceOnes: Urs is a peaceful and kindly soul who doesn't care much for fighting and would rather spend his time cooking; he's viewed as a bit of a pushover by Rumo. Later on, however, he proves himself as one of the most formidable warriors in Wolperting: His reluctance to fight is for personal reasons, not because he isn't any good at it.
