* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: The Swiss in real history drove the Holy Roman Empire out through open warfare sometime earlier than the timeframe of the manga and William Tell did not die like he does in this story.

Added DiffLines:

* GratuitousGerman: The title of the work combines the Japanese and German ways of saying "Wolf's Maw", and the title page includes a summary of the story in Gothic-font German that presumably cannot be read by the intended Japanese readers.

Added DiffLines:

* MedievalMorons: Significantly Averted. Being smart was just as important in the Middle Ages as it was in any other period, and any characters playing the game of subterfuge have to be quick with their wits.

** Wolf's Maw defenses would have been impregnable if not for the fact that Wolfram drove the Swiss to such rage that a lot of them did not mind sacrificing themselves to bring him down.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: While Wolfram's mind always made him extremely dangerous, Walter and others assumed that ''physically'' Wolfram is a SissyVillain. But the final surprise Wolfram had prepared for those seeking to corner him is himself being a skilled, dangerous fighter. [[spoiler: That surprise claims Hilde's life.]]

* McNinja: Although there's no indication she was trained in actual ''ninjutsu'', Johanna is basically what you get by transferring the idea of a female ninja or ''kunoichi'' to 14th century Europe. She disguises herself flawlessly as an old woman in her attempt to pass the St. Gotthard Pass checkpoint, uses her wiles to break out of her cell and infiltrate the castle, and dispatches multiple guards using her deadly martial arts skills. The inclusion of such a character in this setting is simply justified by RuleOfCool.



* {{Ninja}}: Johanna is practically a Western European ninja, having extraordinary skill with small blades, disguise, and infiltration.

* AnachronismStew: Downplayed, as you have to be really into the LateMiddleAges to notice, but some forms of costumes, arms, and armor that didn't appear until the late 14th century are depicted in the early 14th century setting, and there's a few 15th century outliers like sallet helmets and the Lucerne hammer. The cranequin device that William Tell uses to span his crossbow wasn't invented until after 1400.
