* AndroclesLion: In the first book, Kit saves a Lotus Esprit by removing wreckage from its axle. It then goes on to help him and Nita a number of times later, including stalling the Lone Power to allow them to get away back to their universe. This is even underscored by the fact that the car acts a great deal like a giant cat or dog, both in how it originally attempts to hunt them and in its loyalty after Kit saves it.

* GeniusLoci: First appears in ''High Wizardry'', when Dairine stumbles across a planet whose surface is one big motherboard and manages to turn it into a sentient, wizardly supercomputer. In ''Games Wizards Play'', it turns out this also happens closer to home; some planets in our solar system are sentient, and can project humanoid avatars for social occasions. In fact, Saturn and Jupiter are dating.

** The side story 'Lifeboats' was, according to its Afterword, written as a deliberate subversion of this trope; the main characters are part of a planetary evacuation effort with thousands of other wizards involved, and they all have more or less the same crucial but menial job of keeping the evacuation portals working correctly.

* TheOnlyOne: Justified in that the wizards are only sent into situations for which they are singularly qualified to perform.

* TheOnlyOne: Justified in that the wizards are only sent into situations for which they are singularly qualified to perform. This immediately implies that equally perilous and potentially world-ending events happen ''all the time'', and all of those others are handled by all the ''other'' wizards.

* NoodleIncident: A bizarre verb-version of the trope: grenfelzing. Frequently referenced as being ''some'' kind of alien activity, but never, ever explained. Apparently it includes chocolate.

* NoodleIncident: A bizarre verb-version of the trope: grenfelzing. Frequently referenced as being It is known to be ''some'' kind of alien activity, activity / pastime, but never, ever explained. Apparently Kit's sister Carmela seems to be the only human character in the series who knows what it includes actually is. The author loves implying it is somehow sexual in nature, though the casual way in which Carmela treats the subject seems to contradict that.
** ''It's kind of like emmfozing, but with
chocolate.''

* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: The wizard's manual describes plain old things like teleportation in insanely impossible-to-understand words. Justified in that magic is based on telling the universe what you want it to do in a very specific manner. You NEED to be able to split hairs and use precise diction. Especially when you want to do things like bring air with you on your jaunt to the moon. If you miswrite a name, the named changes to fit.
