* FreudWasRight: The swords-and-roses motifs which recur throughout the series. Also, the scene in ''Doomwyte'' where a very large blind snake is trapped in a tunnel.

* HilariousInHindsight: The crows in ''Doomwyte'' make a lot of cawing and croaking noises when talking. One of them?

** ''High Rhulain'' constantly keeps reminding us with Tiria that you shouldn't discriminate against women, and that any female can do the same things a male can do. Clearly Brian Jacques forgot that he already tried to show that with the dozens and dozens of other '''female''' {{Badass}} heroes (and villains, for that matter) this series has to offer.

** Rasconza, simply for being a {{Badass}} MagnificentBastard who managed to outsmart [[SmugSnake Ublaz]] on multiple occasions.

* WinBackTheCrowd: ''The Sable Quean'' certainly did this after the author published quite a few lackluster (or downright horrible) novels. ''The Sable Quean'' gave us interesting and {{Badass}} protagonists who developed over time, no useless subplots (except for maybe one that was resolved quickly), a new plot, smarter villains, and [[BloodKnight Zwilt the Shade]]. Needless to say, many Redwall fans were pleased with this book. Unfortunately, just as the crowd came back [[AuthorExistenceFailure the author left]].

* WriteWhoYouKnow: WordOfGod is that Jacques based Gonff the Mousethief on his younger self, and Constance the badger was based on his grandmother. If that's true, Jacques must have had an ''impressively'' {{Badass}} [[NeverMessWithGranny grandmother]]...

* DesignatedVillain: Generally speaking, anything that hunts the AlwaysLawfulGood characters is treated as a villain for that reason. Any sympathy or respect towards a creature's right to live tends to end at the "It eats us!" line, and there is no way a member of the typical victim species will perceive something like Asmodeus as anything short of pure evil. However, in the context of ''Redwall'' this comes as a bit of hypocrisy on the author's (and in a couple of cases even the characters') part, when similar unapologetic sapient-eaters (Stonehead, Aluco, etc) are treated as good friends, as long as they target vermin or reptiles.
** Asmodeus is a predator; he goes around eating animals that are smaller and weaker than him so he can survive. [[FridgeBrilliance Isn't that what snakes do in real life?]] He has this [[AGodAmI god complex]] viewing himself [[TheGrimReaper as a bringer of fate]]. He may be required to eat others to live, but he certainly isn't regretful of it.

reptiles. Granted when it comes to snake it's less predator and OmnicidalManiac since they are smaller hostile to everyone and weaker than him so he can survive.

** Verdauga Greeneyes stands out among the other antagonists for averting AlwaysChaoticEvil and BlackAndWhiteMorality. Indeed, his PragmaticVillainy and hints of being a BenevolentBoss and a NobleDemon make him a rather unique foe in this serie. However, [[spoiler:he's quickly killed by his much more conventionally evil daughter [[CompleteMonster Tsarmina]], preventing us to see the heroes fight against an enemy that wasn't evil to the core for once]].

Not only is she an expert slinger and warrior, but she's [[spoiler:also dreamed of Salamandastron and Lord Brang. When she ultimately meets up with him after heroically defending Redwall from the Ravagers, he makes her next in line to the throne.]]

** [[BaseBreaker Depending on how you feel about him]], Veil Sixclaw's ''entire'' subplot from ''Outcast of Redwall'' is this. Considering he is the title character (It's called "Outcast of Redwall", not "Sunflash Kicks Ass") it's quite an achievement.

** [[spoiler:Rinkul]] from ''The Long Patrol''. He was a DangerouslyGenreSavvy MauveShirt and the only Rapscallion smart enough to realize something was off about Midge Manycoats and Tammo. But everytime he tried to warn somebeast, the other Rapscallions would tell him to shut up, threaten to kill him, or they physically abused him. When the Rapscallions [[spoiler:finally find out that they're both hares and give chase, he's abruptly killed by Tammo when he throws a spear at him.]] Had [[spoiler:Rinkul]] lived until the end of the story, he and Tammo could've gotten into an epic one-on-one swordsfight.
