** The manual, when talking about the religions of Ankh-Morpork, mentions {{Eldritch Abomination}}s and their worshippers. This might seem like just a bit of worldbuilding (or a ShoutOut to Creator/HPLovecraft). [[spoiler:Then comes the CosmicHorrorReveal two-thirds in.]]

** After meeting the dwarf Al Khali, Lewton comments "all we needed was a troll and a member of the undead and we could open an ethnic comedy on Broadway". Soon after that, Lewton meets Malachite the troll, and much later [[spoiler:Letwon himself becomes a member of the undead]].

* BackFromTheDead: One of Lewton's first lines is "I've never woken up dead before". He's been stabbed with the stolen sword he was searching for, but revived because his client had infected him with lycanthropy and the blade wasn't silver.
