* OhCrap: Aslan gives Jill a series of signs that will help in accomplishing the quest that she's being sent upon, but she, Eustace, and Puddleglum miss their chance at each one and get progressively more reactive to each one, culminating with the final one: [[spoiler: when the knight is tied to the eponymous silver chair, he begs them to help in the name of Aslan. As helping someone who invoked Aslan's name was the final sign, they panic as they're not sure if the knight is mad or who they're supposed to help. They decide to trust the sign.]]

--> '''Puddleglum:''' Aslan only said to follow the signs. He didn't say it'd be safe.

* DarkIsNotEvil: The army of the Lady of the Green Kirtle is mostly composed of mind-controlled slaves [[spoiler: who turn out to be friendly and fun-loving once freed from the witch's control]]. The witch herself arguably plays the [[LightIsNotGood opposite trope]].

* GrimUpNorth: A notable use of this trope; the whole book takes inspiration from NorseMythology. Ettinsmoor, for example, is a ShoutOut to the Norse Jotunheim.

** Considering how old Caspian is, and the fact Drinian is probably older then him, it is likely he died in the intervening time.

** Considering how old Caspian is, and the fact Drinian is probably older then him, even being referred to as one of the older courtiers about ten years before the story begins, it is likely he died in the intervening time.

Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumor: In his first chapter, Puddleglum says he could tell a story about a girl but that might get their spirits down and he never does that. Though apparently, by the standards of his species he's an optimist.

Added DiffLines:

* [[YouKilledMyFather You killed my Mother]]: After his mother was killed by a serpent, Rillian then spent his time searching the area to kill it. [[spoiler:It turns out the witch entrapped him this way and was the serpent...]]

* ExoticEntree: The protagonists discover that the venison served at the table of the "Friendly Giants" came from a Talking Stag. Talking Animals are fully sentient and sapient beings with all the same rights as humans and other people-esque races (e.g. dwarves), so the author notes that for anyone of Narnian culture, this is the equivalent of cannibalism. [[spoiler: If that weren't enough, the characters later find out they are on the menu for the following night.]]
