* TheAntiGod: [[GodOfEvil Tash]], as he is literally the antithesis of [[CrystalDragonJesus Aslan]]. All that is vile and evil is Tash's domain, all that is noble and good is Aslan's.

to:

* TheAntiGod: [[GodOfEvil Tash]], as he is literally the antithesis of [[CrystalDragonJesus Aslan]]. All that is vile and evil is Tash's domain, all that is noble and good is Aslan's. It is explained by Aslan himself that he and Tash are such opposites that anyone who does good in the name of Tash is actually serving Aslan, and anyone who does evil in Aslan's name is actually serving Tash.

Added DiffLines:

* GreaterScopeParagon: Aslan the lion plays the most prominent role in supernaturally aiding the heroes, while only brief influence is felt from his father, the Emperor-Beyond-The-Sea. As the books are Christian allegory, it is generally assumed that Aslan represents Jesus Christ (aka God the Son) while the Emperor is God the Father.

Added DiffLines:

* EthnicGod: Aslan is considered the ultimate king of all Narnians, whereas Tash is the god worshipped by all Calormens. However this is subverted in ''Literature/TheLastBattle'', which explains that these two are the [[GodOfGood gods of good]] and [[GodOfEvil evil]] respectively, and anyone who adops these aspects worships their respective being, regardless of the name they use.

to:

* FaunsAndSatyrs: Lewis describes both FaunsAndSatyrs as inhabitants of Narnia. Although he describes fauns as having the hindlegs of goats, long tails, curly hair, and small horns, the only description for the satyrs is that they are red as foxes or reddish-brown in color. The book illustrations depict fauns and satyrs as basically identical, with the exception of Mr. Tumnus, who is drawn with a long tail. The movies expand the difference by making fauns goat-legged and human bodied, with regular goat tails instead of long tails, and satyrs as basically human sized goats that walk on their hindlegs.

* LightIsGood / DarkIsEvil: Played with. Most of the villains are not "dark", and while Aslan arguably fills the "light BigGood" niche the only truly light-oriented creatures, the stars, don't play a big role - nor do they seem any more morally conventional than any other race. The inhabitants of Narnia's underworld [[DarkIsNotEvil are mostly good]], and the very first villain is a [[WomanInWhite witch dressed in white]] (although not explicitly light related).

* [[TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse Narnia Is The Center Of The Universe]]: Aside from ''Dawn Treader'', all the books' antagonists' plans involve Narnia in one form or another. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], in that Narnia was the first country made in the other world, and therefore the one most special to Aslan.
