* BigBadDuumvirate: TheBigBad: Shift, although as soon as he brings in the Talormenes to rule, he loses all his authority and is reduced to a figurehead. Rishda and Ginger. The latter two were [[DragonInChief Dragons in chief]] with Rishda being the dominant.



* DrivenToMadness: Ginger is so terrified by what he sees in the stable that he loses his voice and turns into an ordinary cat.
* DraggedOffToHell: [[spoiler: Rishda Tarkaan's fate.]]
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Susan survives having not been on the train, but is written out of the story. The Pevensie children claim that she stopped believing in Narnia and started dismissing her adventures as childhood games. The effect is [[{{Anticlimax}} anticlimactic]].

* HollywoodTactics: Averted, most notably when Jill and Farsight -- the only ranged combatants -- are sent to flank the attacking Calormenes. Also when the Calormene spears are very effective at killing dangerous but unarmed animals like boars, bears and unicorns.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Brownface}}: Tirian, Eustace, and Jill wear the Narnian version of fake tan as part of their disguises to darken their faces enough to pass as Calormene. It works well enough to briefly convince some Calormenes.

* EsotericHappyEnding: Even if the children are now [[spoiler: happily living in Aslan's country]], the realization that they had been [[spoiler:mangled corpses on some train platform]] for the better part of the book is still jarring to the reader. This is because ''The Last Battle'' has the same type of optimism found in the Literature/BookOfRevelation -- the end of this world is just the beginning of a [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence truer existence]]; if you don't buy it, the ending might come off as very dark indeed.

* AYearAndADay: The Unicorn tells a story about Swanwhite the Queen, who ruled Narnia before the coming of the White Witch and the Great Winter. She was so beautiful that when she looked in a forest pool, the reflection of her face shone out of the water like a star at night for a year and a day afterward.

--> ''Shift had one friend and neighbour who was a donkey called Puzzle. At least they both said they were friends, but from the way things went on you might have thought Puzzle was more like Shift's servant than his friend.''

* BoltOfDivineRetribution: In the first chapter, Aslan sends one which Shift begins to think of using the lion-skin to impersonate him. Puzzle sees it for the sign it is, but Shift brushes it off.


Added DiffLines:

* EasilyForgiven: Aslan has some words with Puzzle over impersonating him, but in the end he's forgiven and is allowed into Aslan's Country; of course he did try to undo the damage he did.
