* RetGone: After Jadis leaves Charn, it vanishes from existence. Its pool in the Wood between the Worlds is dried up and, save for the memories of Digory and Polly and the continued presence of Jadis herself, it's as if Charn and its entire universe never existed.

* UnderdressedForTheOccasion: Inverted. When Aslan magically summons soon-to-be-Queen Helen to Narnia, she is described as looking beautiful in her simple attire. The narrator informs us that if she had known this was going to happen and had put on her best outfit, she would have looked tacky.

* TrapIsTheOnlyOption: Digory feels this way about the bell [[spoiler:that will awaken Jadis]], lest their [[CuriosityIsACrapshoot curiosity]] [[BrownNote drive them mad]]. Polly disagrees, considering it pure SchmuckBait. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, she's "overruled". However, she's later proved right and vindicated, by Aslan no less.]]

* RoyalBlood: Jadis believes this is a requirement for magic (as indeed it apparently was on Charn) in order to use [[FunctionalMagic Rule Magic]]. [[FunctionalMagic Device Magic]] is usable by anyone, but according to Jadis, non-royal magicians on Charn were wiped out.

* 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.

** When off Charn, Jadis inexplicably does speak English, though her spell casting is still done in her [[WeaponsGradeVolcabulary original language]] [[spoiler: and doesn't work outside of Charn.]]

* 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.

* FairyGodmother : Deconstructed. Uncle Andrew had a godmother who left him the box of dust and a mystery. He explains to Digory that he's one of few people who have an actual "fairy" godmother, as she's rumoured to have fairy blood in her.

* 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."
