** Eustace's unfortunate name may have been inspired by Lewis' own terrible name (Clive Staples), which he hated; he used Jack as his name among friends.

* TheVamp: TrailersAlwaysSpoil: A subtle example. Eustace and Jill hear the tale of TheHorseAndHisBoy (which had not been published at the time) while in Cair Paravel. [[spoiler: The Lady narration describes it as "the grand old tale of ''Prince Cor'' and Aravis and the Green Kirtle for Prince Rillian, even resorting to MindControl.horse Bree", spoiling Shasta's true identity.]]

* TakeThat:
--> "The Head's friends saw that the Head was no use as a Head, so they got her made an Inspector to interfere with other Heads. And when they found she wasn't much good even at that, they got her into Parliament where she lived happily ever after."

* 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, 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.
