The first written, first published, the second book chronologically and the most famous of the seven ''ChroniclesOfNarnia''. Some forty years after the events of the {{prequel}} ''[[TheMagiciansNephew The Magician's Nephew]]'', four siblings (Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie) pass through a magical wardrobe owned by "Professor Kirke" [[TrappedInAnotherWorld into the land of Narnia]] which has been cursed with eternal winter by Jadis, the White Witch. [[BecauseDestinySaysSo In accordance with prophecy]], the children, helped by Aslan (Turkish for "[[MeaningfulName Lion]]"), defeat her, and are jointly crowned as the four Kings and Queens of Narnia. [[DistantFinale After fourteen years]], the children accidentally return through the wardrobe, reverting to childhood. The action of ''TheHorseAndHisBoy'' takes place during their reign.
----
!! This book provides examples of:
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwarfs]], Wolves, Minotaurs, Hags, Harpies, Giants and all the other races that are loyal to the witch. This would technically make them evil but these races probably obey the witch because none of them are brave enough to try to backstab her and usurp the throne for themselves.
** Mostly, but subverted by dwarfs, a giant, and even wolves rescued from the Witch's castle, who later fight for Aslan.
** The movie had the dwarfs divided between sides.
** In this, it's being true to the later books. PrinceCaspian and TheLastBattle have dwarfs divided between the sides of good (Trumpkin, Poggin) and evil (Nikabrik in ''Caspian'' and the rebels in TheLastBattle). The dwarfs' appearances in other books are even farther from the doctrine of dwarfish depravity; indeed, if you only read those books you'd think the dwarfs are just another of the many AlwaysLawfulGood races in Narnia.
** Giants are also divided between good and evil in later books.
* AnIcePerson: The White Witch.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Susan in the Walden Media film remarks that a beaver shouldn't be speaking, never mind that she's just travelled through a wardrobe into a magical land.
* AsYouKnow: Done in an aside from the narrative, as Lewis notes several times that his readers all know better than to shut themselves into a wardrobe. This was probably done to avoid inspiring kids to lock themselves in by mistake. See also DontTryThisAtHome.
* AuthorAvatar, people who know about Lewis's life story will recognise definite parallels between him and the grumpy professor the children go to stay with.
* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: For all four Pevensies.
* BeingEvilSucks: This realization spurs Edmund to make his HeelFaceTurn.
* BigBad: Jadis.
* BigBadAssWolf: Maugrim.
* BigBrotherBully: Edmund is this to Lucy.
* BigGood: The kids are the main characters, but Aslan is the one who saves the day. Even lampshaded by the Beavers.
* BlitzEvacuees: The Pevensie children
* BreakTheHaughty: Edmund. That is all.
* CreepySouvenir: The whole ''garden'' of people/animals the White Witch has turned into stone. In the Walden Media film version, she also wears Aslan's shaved-off mane into battle.
* CrystalDragonJesus: Aslan.
* DontTryThisAtHome: Every time someone climbs into the wardrobe, to the point where one begins to wonder if it's an inside joke or a RunningGag.
* DarkActionGirl: The White Witch, so very much.
* DistinguishedGentlemansPipe: Professor Kirke.
* DreamingOfAWhiteChristmas: Subverted in that in Narnia, it is always winter and never Christmas. And when [[spoiler:Christmas finally does come, it heralds a thaw]].
* DubNameChange: Maugrim, the wolf servant of the White Witch, had his name changed to Fenris Ulf in earlier American editions (which also changed Peter's first title from "Wolfsbane" to "Fenrisbane"). They then went back to using Maugrim.
* EnforcedMethodActing: In the Walden Media film, TildaSwinton (White Witch) flirted with Skandar Keyes (Edmund) to make him feel more uneasy for their scenes together.
* EvilAlbino: The White Witch.
* EvilIsDeathlyCold
* EvilTastesGood: Edmund and the Turkish Delight.
* ExecutiveMeddling: Lewis was dead when the books were re-ordered. He had no intentions of re-ordering the story himself, his only public expression on the order of the books being a simple letter to a child telling him to read them in whatever order he thought best.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler: Aslan]].
** [[spoiler: And what's more, he did it knowing exactly what would happen if he were to die. [[LoopholeAbuse In more th]][[MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning an one way]]]].
* FaeriesDontBelieveInHumansEither: Tumnus the faun reacts this way to Lucy the first time he meets her, and owns a book called ''Is Man a Myth?''
* FollowTheWhiteRabbit: A robin leads the children to Mr. Beaver.
** Inverted later when they are hunting for a stag, and it leads them back to the gate to the normal world.
* FoodChains: See GRatedDrug below.
* FurryConfusion: The BBC Series has [[PettingZooPeople people in animal costumes]], actual animals and animated creatures all on the screen at once. At one point, Maugrim even apprears to shapeshift into a regular wolf, though he's supposed to be a regular wolf anyways.
* GRatedDrug: The White Witch's Turkish Delight. WordOfGod states it's an [[EvilTastesGood analogue for sin]].
* GenderEqualEnsemble: Two boys (Peter and Edmund) and two girls (Susan and Lucy).
* GenreSavvy: All the Pevensies, seeing as they're children who are pretty familiar with fairytales, and (rightly) assume a fairytale world will work according to fairytale rules. For example, their decision to follow the robin is based on Peter's observation that robins are always good birds in books.
* GoodAnimalsEvilAnimals: The book splits talking beasts more or less along the standard lines between those on the side of the Witch and those on the side of Aslan. This doesn't show up so much in the rest of the series when Narnia was united, but "evil" animals don't show up much at all then.
* GrimUpNorth: It's grim everywhere in Narnia due to the Hundred Year Winter, but particularly near the Witch's Castle in the north.
* HeelFaceTurn: Edmund, for the second half.
** Mr. Tumnus, after his HeelRealization while in the company of Lucy.
* HollywoodTactics: Pretty blatant in the Walden movie. You've an entire air force of griffons armed with rocks; do you fly them far above arrow range and just start dropping rocks on the charge to scatter it, or do you neatly line them up to Jadis' crossbows just so they can try taking out individual soldiers?
* IcePalace: The Witch's castle.
* ImNotAHeroIm: In the Walden Media film:
-->'''Peter:''' We're not heroes.
-->'''Susan:''' We're from Finchley!
* InterdimensionalTravelDevice: The wardrobe allows travel between Earth and Narnia -- sometimes.
* ItWasAGift: Father Christmas's gifts to the Pevensies.
* {{Jerkass}}: Again, Edmund. He later becomes a [[BadassNormal Badass Normal]] during the final battle.
* LightIsNotGood: Jadis
* TheMarvelousDeer: The wish-granting stag -- that is not caught. Instead the hunt sends them back home.
* TheMessiah: Aslan. He's also a MessianicArchetype, a rare twofer.
* TheMole: Edmund, for the first half, although it is revealed to the reader at the start of the plot thread.
** [[spoiler: Jadis also fooled Edmund into thinking she was on his side long enough for him to lure his siblings to Narnia]].
** Mr. Tumnus was this to Lucy, then oddly became a ReverseMole to the witch after his HeelRealization
* MrExposition: The beavers fulfill this role, and it avoids AsYouKnow territory since the kids are new to that universe and really don't know any of the expository material.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Edmund's reaction when the White Witch turns a dinner party to stone for refusing to deny it was provided by Father Christmas over his protests. At that point, Edmund realizes the evil he has sided with and wishes with all his heart that he could undo what he has done. Fortunately, Aslan later helps him do just that.
* TheNounAndTheNoun (and the noun)
* PortalSlam
* PrettyInMink
* PropheciesRhymeAllTheTime:
-->''When Adam's flesh and Adam's bone''\\
''Sits at Cair Paravel in throne,''\\
''The evil time will be over and done.''
* RainRainGoAway
* ReverseMole: Fox in the FilmOfTheBook.
* RunningGag: The first few chapters are insistent on reminding you what a very foolish thing it is to lock oneself into a wardrobe.
** It's said that Lewis wrote this in so that young readers playing pretend would not lock themselves in real-life wardrobes. In one of the movie's HilariousOuttakes, Skander Keyes (Edmund) does get himself locked in the wardrobe.
* SiblingRivalry: Edmund and Lucy, with more on Edmund's part, due to the fact that he enjoys tormenting her. Fortunately, they got better.
* SpringIsLate: By about a ''hundred years''.
* SupernaturalAid: Father Christmas's gifts to the Pevensies.
* TakenForGranite: The White Witch's power.
* TenderTears: Susan and Lucy.
* TheyStillBelongToUsLecture: The Witch tries to reclaim Edmund after his HeelFaceTurn by telling the other heroes that he is a traitor and his blood is her property. [[spoiler:The problem is, according to the laws of magic in Narnia, she's right. This is why Aslan has to sacrifice himself in Edmund's place.]]
* ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself: Aslan tells the others to stay back and let Peter fight Maugrim alone.
** Directly echoes the story of Edward III saying of his son, the Black Prince, at the Battle of Crécy, "Let the boy win his spurs." (The spurs were a symbol of knighthood.)
* ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil: One of the consequences of Edmund's GRatedDrug usage.
* UncannyValley: [[invoked]]Mr. Beaver advises the Pevensie children that if something claims to be, used to be, or may become human, "keep an eye on it and feel for your hatchet."
* TheVamp: The White Witch for Edmund.
* VictoryGuidedAmnesia: After being crowned Kings and Queens of Narnia, the children slowly forget their old life on Earth -- until one day, while out riding...
* WeaponOfChoice: Father Christmas's gifts to Peter, Susan, and Lucy include a [[HeroesPreferSwords sword]] and shield, a bow and quiver of arrows, and a dagger respectively.
* WinterRoyalLady: Although not fitting the title part of the trope, she fits the other parts.
* WomanInWhite: The White Witch.
* WorldWarII: In the background; treated more prominently in the first film.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The animals having a dinner party before being turned to stone by the Witch (leading to Edmund's HeelFaceTurn) are never mentioned again. Aslan being omniscient and all or perhaps Edmund told him, he probably gave them a visit to restore them, but who knows?
** Lewis got a WhatHappenedToTheMouse letter from one of his readers (or the reader's mom) and hastily wrote back a WordOfGod that ''of course'' the animals at the dinner party got turned back, just not on stage, and he was very sorry the child was distressed about the issue.
* YouImaginedIt: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]; none of the Pevensies were concussed or on hallucinogens at the time.
