* SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum:
** Jadis wiped out all the living things in Charn because her sister won the civil war.
** Notably, Jadis did not die from using the Deplorable Word, so the "suicidal" part doesn't apply. Given that everything else was dead, though, she placed herself in a state of torpor afterward to wait for visitors.

* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: The Deplorable Word. The royalty of Charn knew of it and it's power to kill everything, save for the one who speaks it. They hid the secret of the deplorable word for millenia, for [[MoralEventHorizon none ever grew so depraved and monstrous to ever consider using it]]... until Jadis.

* ItsAllAboutMe : Jadis is described as completely ignoring anything for which she has no use. Once she's finished with Digory, it's like he isn't there, in favour of Uncle Andrew. The text describes witches as "terribly practical."

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

to:

** 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.
