** The Great Minds theorize that this is actually how Predictamancy works. The act of casting a Prediction spell actually creates a magical entity that enforces the prophecy.

* SmallRoleBigImpact: Queen Bea and her side only existed briefly in the story before quickly being wiped out. And yet, her legacy continues to have a disproportionately massive impact in thwarting Gobwin Knob. Roger implies that her final, suicidal act of spite actually generated a Croakamancy curse that continues to haunt them.

* BeyondTheImpossible: JustifiedTrope. Thinkamancers can link up to three casters (including themselves) into a sort of uber-caster that can do things flat-out impossible for normal casters. The Summon Perfect Warlord spell that brought Parson to Erfworld, for instance, is one of these 'supposedly impossible spells' but was accomplished in this manner.

[[spoiler:Then it turns out that there is a secret cabal of Thinkamancers who are able to form even ''larger'' links, allowing them to do things that violate even the rules on three-person links.]]

* ShipTease: Fans are starting to notice a certain degree of... ''something'' between Parson and Maggie. It was eventually both confirmed on Maggie's end and sunk from Parson's when Janis (a Date-a-Mancer) told him that Maggie had feelings for him and Parson made it clear he couldn't reciprocate them.

* WeAreStrugglingTogether: Just about everyone in the Magic Kingdom can agree that Wanda is a world shattering threat they need croaked. But [[spoiler:when several Gobwin Knob units come to rescue her from their prison, the lack of coordination and outright infighting causes the casters guarding Wanda to lose what should have been an easy fight]].

* NeverSayDie: Parodied; the word "croak" is used instead. Only a tiny number of Erfworlders have ever used non-euphemisms. As is later revealed, Erfworld units are instinctively aware of what the word "kill" means, but it isn't a normal part of their vocabulary and they find the word vulgar if they hear it spoken by one of the few people that do use it.

The same goes for words like "year" (they say "tenturn" or "hundredturn") and "rapist".

* RegionalRedecoration: The Dirtamancer Sizemore gets to do this through [[spoiler: a powerful MentalFusion that lets him awaken a dormant volcano. Once the rush runs off, though, he's absolutely [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone horrified]].]]
--> '''Sizemore:''' It was magnificent, Warlord. Horrifying, but... I can't describe it. I actually modified the terrain type, like a [[PhysicalGod Titan]].

** Part of what makes Parson so dangerous is that he finds ways to enforce this, weaponizing things no-one else would think of.
** The Juggle Elves are a horde of elves who spend most of their time partying and freeloading, and are generally seen as a nuisance by everyone, what with the rampant foraging required to sustain them all. [[spoiler:They also know how to block Shockamancy attacks.]]



* {{Deuteragonist}}: In the main plot, Parson is the Protagonist with Wanda as the Deuteragonist and half a dozen characters who could be considered for the role of tritagonist including Ansom ([[DemotedToExtra in book 1 at least]]), Jillian, Charlie, and Tramennis.
