* BroughtDownToBadass: After arriving in England, Jadis finds her dismay that her magic does not work. However, she's still incredibly tall and strong enough to break the crossbar off a lamppost with her bare hand.

** How Jadis makes her mistake when tempting Digory in the climax.

** How Jadis makes her mistake when tempting Digory in the climax. She suggests that he could conceal his theft of one of the silver apples by abandoning Polly and stranding her in Narnia, so that nobody would know what he did. Digory knows what Jadis doesn't - that Polly has her own set of rings and can get home fine on her own - but the sheer meanness of the idea is enough to make him realize that Jadis doesn't have his interests at heart, and ends any thought he might have had of giving in to the temptation.



* EvilIsCool: Subverted with Jadis. Did you expect Creator/CSLewis not to? [[invoked]]

* HeelFaceTurn: It is mentioned at the end that after his humiliating and unfortunate experiences, Uncle Andrew gradually abandons his magical pursuits and becomes a rather nicer person, although he remains eccentric and still has a fondness for cornering visitors to his house to gush about Jadis at them.

** Polly is GenreSavvy enough to suspect that the warning next to the bell in Charn (which says that anyone who reads said warning must either strike the bell or go insane wondering what would have happened otherwise) is just SchmuckBait and not actually putting them under an enchantment. [[spoiler:She's right.]] Unfortunately, Digory ''does'' fall for it.

* HolyBurnsEvil: The magical tree planted by Digory a the behest of Aslan. It is grown from one of the silver apples which grants one's heart's desire. Since Jadis plucked and ate one such apple selfishly, the very presence of the other apples or any new tree growing from them becomes unbearable to her. She can't bear to be within hundreds of miles of the new tree, so that it acts as a temporary but long-lived ward against her, keeping Narnia safe for centuries.

** When Aslan explains how the special apples do indeed grant the user his wish, but how the wish becomes twisted and rotten if the apple is obtained selfishly; he mentions that had Digory taken one home to his mother as Jadis recommended, she would indeed have recovered just as Jadis said, but then a future day in their lives would be so horrible that Digory and his mother would both ultimately look back on that day and wish she had died instead.

* CreationStory: The beginning of Narnia is witnessed by Polly, Digory, Andrew, the Cabbie and Jadis.
** The primary rules of Narnia in the later books are laid down by Aslan: specifically that only sons of Adam and daughters of Eve are the rightful rulers of Narnia. This is because a son of Adam (Digory) caused Jadis to waken and enter Narnia to threaten it, and so Aslan proclaims that it falls to humanity to forever protect Narnia from evil.

** Aslan warns the talking animals never to behave as their dumb unspeaking counterparts, lest they return to that state of being. Later books in the series show this is precisely what happens to native Narnians who indulge their baser instincts.
