* {{Narm}}: While the semi-realistically proportioned humans compared to the obvious cartoon creatures can be this way at first, by the third book, this wears off.
** However, in book 9, Briar is shown doing a dance where she has her hands clapped up over her head and with her leg extended, almost like some kind of pagan-dance. Given the seriousness of the series at that point, it seems funny for the wrong reason - especially since it comes out of nowhere.



* VindicatedByHistory: Arguably, the series never really got into the public eye until the colorized re-prints were released.

* CanonSue: Thorn gets seen as this by some fans; she's destined for greatness, gets NewPowersAsThePlotDemands, and is often more of a focus than the title characters. However, it's pretty clear she doesn't fit that definition; although she might have powers, she makes many mistakes and bad judgements, is constantly hurt and injured, and only succeeds thanks to the help and support of the rest of the cast. Keeping in mind that the comic was originally called ''Thorn'', this is not as big a surprise as it might have been. She's the actual main character, with the Bones serving as FirstPersonPeripheralNarrator (Fone Bone in particular, who was the Ishmael in his ''Literature/MobyDick'' dream.)

* Woolseyism: The Norwegian translation is full of them; translator Jens E. Røsåsen is a veteran in translating comics and seems to have had a field day with this one. He even managed to add a couple of jokes, adding a bit of edge back to one scene after Smiley's "lamaze and bungy-jumping" line was cut.

* NightmareFuel: [[spoiler:Briar, aka The Hooded One, is pretty freaky-looking when she's revealed.]] Think [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs the Wicked Queen's hag disguise]] and you're on the right track.
** Tarsil is also [[FacialHorror pretty horrifying in appearance]] when he reveals his face.
*** When The Hooded One and Tarsil face off, [[spoiler: s]]he casts an illusion ''of his old, handsome face.'' The real Tarsil's face is so mangled that his look of shock is barely discernable [[spoiler: even as she rushes him and cuts him in half at the waist before he can react.]]
** Kingdok and the other Rat Creatures have pretty nasty moments given their featureless eyes and [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily rows of teeth]]. Even the two Stupid Rat Creatures get a few creepy moments before their bickering sets off.
