** Sacred goblin tradition requires them to keep their few magic weapons in The Poorly Locked Chest in the middle of camp, rather than use them in battle. Complain-of-Names is GenreSavvy enough to use the weapon and gets banished because of it.

** Saves-a-Fox needs to get some GenreSavvy. She really should know better than to talk about how her entire sense of self is built on ScrewDestiny. Though if she doesn't believe in Fate in the first place...

* [[ExplainingYourPowerToTheEnemy Explaining Your Curse to the Enemy]]: In ''Tempts Fate 8'', the dwarf explains his curse and main weakness in great details to Tempts Fate, giving the GenreSavvy goblin an easy way to defeat him.

** [[spoiler:And then played completely straight when it turns out the Axe was forged in Hell and that the demon is not being contained, it's being '''transported'''. The Axe is not a seal, it's a portal for a demonic invasion masquerading as one.]]

*** Thaco's name is a reference to an outdated D&D combat mechanic (To Hit Armor Class 0), which relates to his age (he is quite old for a goblin, and much older than the other members of the party). However, [[spoiler: it also hints at his extraordinary combat skill, as demonstrated in his fight against [[EnemyMine Delynn Goblinslayer.]]]]
*** Fumbles' name is a reference to his CloudCuckoolander status (he tends to trip over himself a lot during his shenanigans), as well as a "[[EpicFail fumble]]", otherwise known as a critical failure due to an extremely bad roll of the dice. [[spoiler: Which becomes tragically appropriate when he has the bad fortune of running into Dellyn Goblinslayer.]]
*** Complains of Names [[CaptainObvious likes to complain about the naming system]] of his goblin clan. [[spoiler: He's also the first one to suggest taking adventurer levels, thus [[ScrewDestiny casting off the fate foretold by the clan prophet]] as well as all of the goblin traditions tied to it. [[YouCantFightFate Or maybe not.]]]]
*** Chief is a subversion: [[spoiler: he was never supposed to be the chief, but he was given that name anyway so as to avoid a civil war.]] As a result, [[spoiler: he constantly tries, and fails, to live up to a role he was never supposed to have.]] Is it any wonder that [[spoiler: he's the first of the main characters to die?]]

* MeleeATrois: In the Maze of Many, "our" Forgath-Kin-Minmax team vs. three alternate-universe Kins vs. a pack of undead made from many other dead AU counterparts. In retrospect, attacking a rival party fleeing from a lot of zombies may not be that wise.
