** Mortimer is an interesting variation of this. While most people call him by his proper name, Dustfinger, Capricorn, and the other characters from ''Inkheart'' refuse to call him anything but "Silvertongue", which he doesn't like. He is also known only by a nickname to his daughter, Meggie, who "had never called her father anything but 'Mo'" and his wife.
** The robbers and strolling players in the Inkworld.

* DeathOfAChild:
** Notably Dustfinger's youngest daughter, who never appears in the story because she died of fever while he was stranded in our world, and the kids who were killed in a riot in ''Inkdeath''.
** Also [[spoiler: Farid]] is brutally killed during a battle. He may be more of a subversion, though, because in that setting a boy of his age is thought of as a man anyway, and he doesn't actually ''stay'' dead very long.
** Lampshaded in the film.
--->'''Mo:''' Meggie, just pretend you're in a book. [[InfantImmortality Children always survive in books]].
--->'''Meggie:''' [[AvertedTrope No they don't]]. Remember ''Literature/TheLittleMatchGirl''? They found her in that alley frozen to death.

Added DiffLines:

* SequelHook: Blink and you might miss it but, although the film mostly tied up loose ends (unlike the novel) with [[spoiler:Dustfinger returning home, and Farid staying with Meggie]], it did leave one aspect intact - [[spoiler:Basta and Mortola are not shown dying ''onscreen'' unlike the other major villains]], suggesting that if the film had produced any sequels they might have followed on with their stories as they were written. Of course, the film bombing made this a moot point.

* PetTheDog: In a futile attempt to show his softer side to Meggie, Dustfinger pulls out her mother's copy of ''Literature/TheWizardOfOz'' from the book burning pile and tries to give it to her. Meggie just glares at him.
