* ValuesResonnance: Cheri's story is very much applicable to transgender issues, which have become a far hotter topic than they were at the time the book was written.

* ObfuscatingStupidity: Is Carrot really as naive as he lets others believe him to be or has he begun to discover his hidden ManipulativeBastard? Near the end of the book Carrot and Angua have a hilarious OneDialogueTwoConversations, during which he convinces her to stay in the city, even though she had made up her mind to leave. He appears to be his usual Adorkable self, but Angua instinctively believes that this is not the case. Angua's "feelings" are rarely, if ever, doubted. Moreover, despite the fact he is a major character in this book, chapters that are narrated from his [=PoV=] concern the investigation and his thoughts about golems; they do not elaborate on his day-to-day thoughts, like ''Discworld/{{Men at Arms}}'' did. He's still an [[WideEyedIdealist idealist]] but, as it was mentioned there, simple does not mean stupid.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: "Words in the heart can not be taken" went a bit memetic after Terry Pratchett's death.

** Golems don't understand how human bodies work, so he may not have known it could cause lasting harm. If he ''did'' know, he probably chose a small apple.

** Possibly undermined by the fact that Dorfl still has his chem at this point and is this incapable of causing intentional harm to a living human. If it were really dangerous he wouldn't be able to do it.

* ShoutOut. A strange one, which is why it's here and not in main. (Note:YMMV). Fred Colon, a long-time copper coming up to retirement and hoping he makes it in one piece, is placed in a difficult situation with an escaped bull on the city street and discovers it can still out-run him. In American sitcom, ''EverybodyLovesRaymond'', Sergeant Robert Barone is a New York police sergeant coming up to his last year before he can legitimately retire on a pension. One day he has to pick up the pieces following an ineptly-run street rodeo where the animals escape. He discovers he cannot outrun a bull called Nestor, that gores him in the "upper thigh". Hmm. The problem is, that episode of ELR aired ''four years after'' the release of this book. Is it just possible that the scriptwriters of ELR were trawling for an unlikely and embarrassing injury to Robert and one of them reads Pratchett? Which makes this a "Reverse Shout-Out"....
