* EvilSorceror: The Sorceror race certainly looks the part, what with their [[BeardOfEvil goatees]], [[GoodHairEvilHair slicked black hair]] and [[HighCollarOfDoom pointy-collared capes]].

* VestigialEmpire: When a race declines, it turns into this, ready for the newest rising empire to take its place, but not quite gone yet.

* WholeCostumeReference: The Queen token (granted by the Royal power) is wearing the same dress as Disney's SnowWhite. She does not otherwise resemble her at all.

* RandomNumberGod: Downplayed significantly in comparison to ''Risk'', but players have the option on the last conquest attempt of a turn to roll a D6 (the "Reinforcement Die") once for extra effective troops.

* ScoringPoints: One of the things that sets this game and ''Risk'' apart; Victory in ''Small World'' is determined by who can score the most in the allotted number of turns. Although many versions of Risk do now play for points within a turn limit.

* TakeOverTheWorld: Averted. This is another difference between ''Small World'' and ''Risk''. It's actually impossible for any single race to occupy every space on the map due to limited numbers. It might be possible for a single player to control the entire map between active and declined races, but it would take either the full cooperation of every player or a ridiculous amount of luck.
