* ClassicalAntiHero: Optimus. He's a master of the written word and can turn an eloquent phrase better than anyone -- but he's also a cowardly whiner who constantly goes off on tangents instead of concentrating on the task at hand and besides being a dinosaur is absolutely useless in a fight.

* ClassicalAntiHero: Optimus. He's a master of the written and spoken word and can turn an eloquent phrase better than almost anyone -- but he's also a cowardly whiner who constantly goes off on tangents instead of concentrating on the task at hand hand, tends to make all the stupid mistakes he chides fictional heroes for making, and besides despite being a dinosaur is he's absolutely useless in a fight.

Correcting Chekovs Gun
* ChekovsGun: A particularly hilarious example is [[spoiler:''Ritter Hempel'', the novel that Optimus hated and never finished reading. He has to complete some lines from it when he meets the Booklings, to prove he's an actual Lindworm. Lucky for him, the lines the Booklings quoted were the exact same ones he heard in his conversation with the Nocturnomath bookseller]].

Rename
* PaintingTheFourthWall: Used when [[spoiler: Optimus Yarnspinner]] passes out. First, when he opens the poisoned book, the pages of the novel turn into the pages of that book. While he is losing consciousness, the page is black with white type. To give a sense of time while he is passed out, there are a few pages with no text, just blackness or illustrations.
