* CoolOldGuy: Artemus, the Keeper Elder who brought Garrett into the order and served the role of his teacher and father-like figure. Apparently the only Keeper who can still top Garrett in stealth. Overlaps a little with MrExposition in nearly every cutscene or location he appears in.

* TitleDrop: Of course the main title gets a lot of use, but the subtitles of each game each get only a single mention. In the first game [[spoiler:Constantine]] in one written journal calls his plan his "Dark project". The second game never uses the words "metal age", but those are the last words spoken in the {{sequel hook}} ending to the first game. In the third game, a Keeper prophecy talks of "deadly shadows" rising.

** Public signs in the [[VideoGame/ThiefDeadlyShadows third game]] also hints at the world of the series using a different script to any real world one, even though all in-game texts and readables are rendered in Latin scrip to the reader.

Added DiffLines:

* StompyMooks: Inverted. Garrett, the main character, actually wears loud boots because he believes the guards to be complete idiots. [[TheGuardsMustBeCrazy Not without good reason]], mind you.

* NoOSHACompliance: According to the briefing before the "Stopping Time" mission, more people have been killed by the gears of the city clocktower than the blade of the City's guillotine.



** In the third game, guards take pratfalls on oil slicks, and it's [[CrowningMomentOfFunny even more funny]] when they slip right off a dock. Thanks to their Super Drowning Skills, it's a useful tactic, too.

* TalkingToHimself:
** You'd never know it from just playing, but Garrett, Karras, Raoul the beggar and "Benny" the comedic guard are all voiced by Stephen Russell. This happens a lot for many other characters, too.
** Done in a slightly more in-universe sense for the Children of Karras, the robots whose voices are simply Karras' voice recorded.
