* FunetikAksent: For a number of TalkingAnimal characters, including Mudge's rural-British speech and Roseroar's Southern drawl. Colin's accent is described in a way that brings to mind Creator/JohnWayne.

** Book five is probably the worst contender. As the cover shows the heroes surrounded by 4 multicoloured punk imps playing electric guitars. First, they did not dress like punks in the book, they were all red generic looking imps, and they had unique instruments each, none of which were electric guitars. As well as Clothahump on the cover is wearing a ridiculous looking wizard's hat, he is never shown wearing any hats ever and if he did, it wouldn't be one that goofy looking. (And he wasn't even in that scene anyway, since he never went to Strelakat Mews!)

** Book three has Roseroar on the cover. Only instead of the [[BrawnHilda 500 lb block of muscle]] the book describes her as, she's noticably smaller than Jon Tom (when it was mentioned that she's one of the few individuals who's taller than he is) and appears to be nothing more than a human wearing a costume from {{Theatre/Cats}}- she's even got breasts and a human nose.

** The way Clothahump distracts the Polastrindu guards is very reminiscent of how Gandalf in ''TheHobbit'' fooled the trolls into quarreling. The same applies to the scene where the cage of insults appears: it initially fools the heroes the same way.

** Clothahump says in the first book that only mammals and turtles talk, but talking frogs are introduced soon after.

* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: Accidentally applied to a village full of wading birds in ''Chorus Skating'', when Jon-Tom magically re-grows their lost feathers by revising the lyrics of songs about custom auto paint jobs. Luckily, the altered birds get a real kick out of their new makeovers.

* [[spoiler: ShaggyDogStory]]: ''The Day Of The Dissonance''. Not only is Clothahump not actually dying from the illness he claims he needs the medicine for, said medicine is [[spoiler:only aspirin. [[ItWasWithYouAllAlong And Jon-Tom had a bottle in his jeans pocket the whole time]]]]. So the whole trip and all of its deadly dangers really was for nothing.

* {{Expy}}: The Muddletup Moors seem to be this series' equivalent to the [[TheNeverEndingStory Swamp of Sadness]], though here it's more "The moors of 'I stopped giving a crap to the point of dying from utter depression and boredom'".

* WhosOnFirst: Sorbl's fear of "[[NothingIsScarier nothing]]" in the basement.[[note]]It was nearly a case of PoorCommunicationKills; all anyone would have had to do was say "The Nothing" ala TheNeverendingStory.[[/note]]
