* EccentricMentor: Coriakin, most notably his [[DoesNotLikeShoes penchant for going barefoot all the time]]. It is also hinted that he has a quirky sense of humor: he has a bearded mirror in his mansion (which could be used to prank his visitors), and he turned the Duffers into Monopods (probably for amusement, except other reasons).

Added DiffLines:

* NoodleImplements: Several of the magical tools in Coriakin's house have no explicable purpose, most notably the "Bearded Glass," which is a mirror with attached hair to make your reflection appear to have a beard and mustache. The LemonyNarrator admits, "I don't know what the bearded glass was for because I am not a magician."

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Used with an actual mouse, thogh it is certainly NOT due to the author's forgetfulness or simply not caring. It is implied, but not explicitly stated, that Reepicheep made it to Aslan's country. We don't know if he reached it successfully in his boat after going over the giant wave, or died in the attempt and went to Heaven the old-fashioned way; the book simply states that after that moment, no one could claim to have seen him again.

Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: The Duffers are close to this. Coriakin has to look after them because they are barely clever enough to survive on their own. For example, when a cat gets into their food stores, the entire group relocates all the food to a new location, and it never even occurs to any of them to just get the cat out of there and close the door.
