Added DiffLines:

* OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame: Played with. No actual dwarves appear, but Ronf (the only really characterised one of the LittlePeople of Hot Water Valley) is a belligerent, heavily bearded warrior with a Scottish accent; while his people don't normally live underground (except when hiding from the dragon), they do use tunnels to get through the Glass Mountains. Meanwhile, the other little people - the Omruds - DO live underground and are ingenious engineers and craftsmen. So basically dwarf tropes are divided between the two.

* AdultsAreUseless: This happens in the very last film "Noggin and the Pie" - no-one will take Knut's concerns about the gigantic and suspicious pie seriously. It is thus left to him and the other children to save the day.



* Cloudcuckoolander: Olaf.



* DitzyGenius: While clearly a competent inventor, Olaf has a knack for making poor decisions and getting things wrong.



** Olaf apparently has a habit of doing this; he quite happily blows himself through a wall whilst working on his fire machine.

** Graculus follows a crow that has stolen one of Olaf's formulas into a cave, and [[spoiler: runs straight into Nogbad the Bad]]



* TalkingToHimself: Since Oliver Postgate provides many of the voices (all of them in the early black and white films), he inevitably does this a lot.

* ChainOfDeals: In one of the spin-off books, Olaf the Lofty invents money and uses it to buy something off Thor Nogson, who then spends a frustrating day in the (barter-based) marketplace trying to find somebody else who'll take the coins as payment. Eventually he meets a fisherman who sees the coins as weights for fishing lines and gives him a fish for them, allowing him to set up a chain of deals running back through all the people he's talked to and ending with him getting the thing he'd come to the market to buy in the first place.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Olaf's inventions have a habit of leading to this; both his failed shrinking potion and his recipe for firecake land in the hands of Nogbad the Bad, who uses them to create an army of huge crows and uncover the Soceror's Sword respectively.

Added DiffLines:

* SummonBiggerFish: Faced with the pretender Emperor, Noggin summons the benevolent genie that he borrowed from Haroun. The Emperor summons his own genie, a much larger genie that can actually fight. Noggin uses his talisman to summon Groliffe, who happens to be the one type of dragon that can kill the black genie.

* ThrowingDownTheGauntlet: In "The Omruds" Thor Nogson challenges Nogbad the Bad to single combat. Nogbad accepts but, being the DirtyCoward that he is, immediately uses a magic potion to triple his size. Thor Nogson tries again in "Firecake"; this time Nogbad refuses until he has unearthed the Sorceror's Sword.

Added DiffLines:

* NonActionBigBad: Nogbad the Bad never fights (even when Thor Nogson challenges him) and usually has his crows do his dirty work; the latter is at least partly justified after he is forced to sign a contract with the dragons never to steal again.


Added DiffLines:

* SmugSnake: Nogbad.
