* NiceJobBreakingItHerod: It is revealed at the end that when Shasta was a baby, there was a prophecy that one day he would save Archenland from its greatest danger. A Calormene agent, correctly presuming that this great danger would be an incursion from Calormen, kidnapped him in an attempt to prevent the prophecy coming true. Circumstances prevented him from killing the baby, which was raised in Calormen, and eventually got wind of Prince Rabadash's plot to invade Archenland, and so the prophecy came true.

* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSmething: King Lune and all the Narnian royalty are active in battle, with the possible exception of Queen Susan.

* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSmething: RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: King Lune and all the Narnian royalty are active in battle, battle as a matter of course, with the possible exception of Queen Susan. Susan. Prince Corin sneaks into the Battle of Anvard, dragging Shasta with him, and the only reason he's not officially in the fighting is because of his age.

* KickTheSonOfABitch: After Ahoshta and the Tisroc (may he live forever) give Rabadash permission to invade Narnia, Ahoshta helps the Tisroc (may he live forever) justify his decision to send his own son go into a situation that will probably get him killed. It's meant to show Ahoshta as an amoral YesMan -- and the Tisroc not much better -- but then it's not like anyone would really miss Rabadash.

** Also, Rabadash in a way - once he became King, since he couldn't go to war [[spoiler:unless he wanted to turn into a donkey again]] so he did wonderful things for Calormene's education system and became a fine diplomat. Of course, the Calormenes didn't appreciate a Good King, what with being AlwaysChaoticEvil, and started making fun of him as soon as he passed away.

* EvilPrince: Rabadash certainly seems evil, and his father, the Tisroc (may he live forever) fears Rabadash may overthrow him if he is not sent to cool his blood. Apparently this is the norm for the eldest sons of Tisrocs, he mentions that more then five Tisrocs died because their eldest sons grew tired of waiting.

* CripplingOverspecialization: Bree is an excellent teacher of riding, [[DrillSergeantNasty poor demeanor notwithstanding]]. However, Bree teaches Shasta how do specifically ride ''him'' - and as Bree is an intelligent, reasoning creature, he doesn't need to be reined or spurred. Shasta thus has excellent form and balance astride a horse, but absolutely ''no idea'' how to steer or control one. When he's given a normal horse to ride, he's completely at a loss as to what to do with the reins and he soon falls behind the other riders.
