* AllTrollsAreDifferent: Trolls in the ''Series/TheTenthKingdom'' are human-sized, ugly, with overdone mullets, and an obsession with leather. Especially shoes. It isn't clear if the shoe fetish is a racial trait or not, all of the Trolls who exhibit it are immediate family. Despite their human size, they are incredibly strong. At one point one was hit by a car, leaving a deep indent in the front of the car but barely moving the Troll.

* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: Although never actually spoken, it is heavily implied (and even nearly subverted) during the scene at the Huntsman's treehouse in ''Series/TheTenthKingdom'', when Wolf is about to kill him with the magic axe and Virginia stops him.

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: NBC was notorious for doing this during most if not of all of their miniseries "events", but a particularly {{egregious}} example occurred twice for ''Series/TheTenthKingdom'': just after the suspenseful scenes in which Virginia and Tony were trying to buy the Traveling mirror at auction, the trailer revealed [[spoiler:that it gets broken]], and right as we're wondering if the heroes will get to the ball and stop the Evil Queen's plot in time, the trailer revealed [[spoiler:all of Wendell's guests collapsing from poison]]. Next commercial break then shows us both [[spoiler:the same guests awakening, revealing they weren't really dead]] and [[spoiler:Prince and Wendell switching back—though granted, this was something of TheUntwist by that late in the game]]. About the only major plot point not revealed by the trailers, thankfully, was that [[spoiler:the Evil Queen was Virginia's mother]]. Not to mention [[spoiler:Wolf stopping the Huntsman from killing Virginia at the end]].

** Little Lamb village might have ridiculous show trials that are nothing more than a prelude to a lynching, but using SlutShaming on a murder victim for a "she was asking for it" defense ''really'' pisses them off.

** Happens ''again'' in Kissing Town, of all places, after Tony [[spoiler:breaks the magic mirror and everyone runs him, Prince, and Virginia out of town to keep his bad luck from causing them trouble]]. Especially notable because just a short time before, this same crowd had been celebrating the return of "Wendell" and death of the Troll King. Apparently is is very easy to stir one of these up in the Nine Kingdoms.

Added DiffLines:

* ShamingTheMob: Tony in Little Lamb Village, thanks to evidence provided by Wendell. And it's damn effective.


Added DiffLines:

* TorchesAndPitchforks:
** Obviously (and unsurprisingly) this happens in Little Lamb Village after Sally Peep's murder, first when the crowd captures Wolf and then after he is found guilty and about to be [[BurnTheWitch burned at the stake]]. Interestingly (and somewhat realistically, since once people's tempers are riled it's a lot easier to change their target by redirecting their rage) the crowd ends up turning on [[spoiler:Wilfred Peep]] after Tony proves his guilt.

* AcceptableEthnicTargets: The Romani ("Gypsies.") To a somewhat shocking extent, for a series made in the twenty-first century. Suffice to say, it soars clean over "UnfortunateImplications" territory and straight into "downright racist."

** The Gypsies are also portrayed as this, because...[[AcceptableEthnicTargets they're Gypsies]].

Added DiffLines:

** [[FridgeBrilliance Possibly]] because shoes that make you invisible are less valuable to animals or people who rely more on scent.

Added DiffLines:

* StopOrIShootMyself: The fake prince threatens to hang himself and screw up the Queen's plans if she doesn't turn him back into a dog. The queen quickly realizes the material he's using won't actually hold his weight and pushes his support away, causing him to choke briefly before it tears.

* AmbiguousDisorder: [[spoiler:We never learn what was really wrong with Christine, Virginia's mother. All we're told is that she was mentally ill and that she tried to [[OffingTheOffspring kill her daughter]] for some reason. It certainly doesn't help her case when she's taken to a fantasy world and rules as the Evil Queen.]]



** [[spoiler:Not spoken, but Virginia's mother's reaction when she realized that she was trying to drown her own daughter says it all.]]



* OffingTheOffspring: [[spoiler:Virginia's mother tried to drown her daughter when she was younger. She tries to choke her to death several times later too.]]
