* TheHilarityOfHats: Alexia's best friend Ivy is renowned for having the worst taste in hats in the known world, with almost every character commenting on it. In ''Changeless'', the switch to a secret door in a milliner's is hidden under a hat so deliberately hideous that no one would ever want to buy it. Ivy makes a beeline for it.

* WhatIfTheBabyIsLikeMe: Downplayed; while Alexia is concerned about her baby turning out preternatural, it's not the prospect of the condition itself that bothers her, so much as the fact that preternaturals are repelled from each other. Which would be rather uncomfortable, to say the least.

Added DiffLines:

* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: {{Downplayed|Trope}} in that the substance is not strictly ''toxic'', but merely ''very unpleasant'', but one vampire overcomes the species' repulsion to citrus this way. [[spoiler:Lord Akeldama did this entirely for the purpose of putting lemon in his tea.]]

* TheKnightsTemplar: Apparently, the order was really into slaying supernatural creatures. [[spoiler:Alessandro Tarabotti in particular was a result of a breeding program set up by the Templars to make specialized hunters...which didn't exactly work.]]
