* AndIMustScream: The fate of [[spoiler:Rosencrass and Guildenswine]].Guildenswine; after their cruel slaughter of an innocent bird for annoying them and the attempt murder of Sylver's gang under Torca Marda's orders,, the two ferrets received their karmic fate when the sentient trees of the Wood of the Lost Birds ensnare them and turn them into sentient, grimacing trees -- even including a sly wink to the [[Literature/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream source material]] when describing their frozen figures.]]

* {{Anvilicious}}: When Hare and Berk [[spoiler: get turned into glass statues, you can see all of their internal organs, perfectly made of glass…except for their throat and lungs which are black with tar and nicotine.]] Don’t smoke, kids!



* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Sylver speaking with the lion in Noah’s Ark. It completely comes out of nowhere, is weirdly dark and dramatic, and is never mentioned again.



* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Sheriff Falshed single-handedly slaying the jabjab bird and saving the entire ship and its crew. Sadly, since Falshed is the designated ButtMonkey, it quickly turns into a KickTheDog moment. He's the dog.

* ArtisticLicenceBiology: Rats are portrayed as being incredibly stupid and filthy creatures. In reality rats are highly intelligent and obsessively clean animals; certainly a lot more intelligent and clean than weasels!

Flipped back with the sewer rats, who turn out to actually be very well-spoken and fastidious, albeit a century or so behind the times.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: After stopping their ridiculous civil war, Sylver and the crew order the dodos to destroy their weapons and threaten terrible magical deaths for any dodo who carries a weapon. It obviously never occurred to Sylver that the dodos may need to defend themselves from any kind of external threat. Such as, say, ''the rampaging ship of big cats they encountered earlier that admit to attacking settlements and eating the locals'' No wonder the poor birds are extinct!

* WritersCannotDoMath: Flaggatis is mentioned to rule over half a million rats. Even bearing in mind their small size, this is an [i]insane[/i] amount of rats to be living in the marshes (and not even all the marshes, since part is ruled by the toads)- it’s the population of a small city! How on earth are these tribes of rats supporting themselves?

Added DiffLines:

* TheCameo: In Windjammer Run quite a lot of characters from the previous books in the trilogy make a guest appearance.
* TheScrappy: A weird in-universe example, in Windjammer Run the crew are joined by a gerbil. Sylver hates the guy, but everyone else thinks he’s fantastic.

* FridgeHorror: A rare in-universe example: After discovering the cursed island that turns people into glass statues, and seeing those said statues smashed and ground into shining sand, Sheriff Falshed remarks that at some point in the future others will come to the island and bottle this pretty sand without realising what it once was.
