** The final battle in Chorus Skating, in which Jon-Tom's spellsinging isn't powerful enough so [[spoiler: an alien they befriended, (who crossed over from another one of Foster's book series') summons giant black monoliths straight out of "A Space Odyssey 2001" except they're actually giant alien amplifier speakers which are able to tune into his non-electronic Duar. Jon-Tom blows the enemies away with the loudest Rock&Roll ever heard, amazingly without deafening anyone, even better? Mudge (Who never gave a crap about Jon-Toms music) admits he liked playing the drums when he was younger and accompanies Jon-Tom by dancing on a massive Conga-ish drum]]

* HeadScratchers: How did Braglob know that Talea was Jon-Tom's girlfriend? [[spoiler: As powerful a wizard as he is, nowhere in the books implied that wizards could read minds. And the Perambulator wouldn't tell him because it doesn't supply information, it simply alters reality. The only explanation which comes to mind is that the Perambulator perhaps works similar to the "Improbability Drive" from HitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy, in which it can create massive coincidences.]]

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The sunken treasure Mudge unearths in book 8, while he let the Princesses take some jewelry. He legally was able to keep the rest of the treasure for himself, though said treasure is never mentioned again after that scene.

** [[SympathyForTheDevil To some degree]], so is Braglob, the BigBad from book five.

** [[SympathyForTheDevil To some degree]], so is Braglob, the BigBad from book five. Which is why [[HopeSpot the moment when his cowardice and insanity are cured, and he and Jon-Tom seem to connect briefly while he expresses his gratitude, is so heartwarming]]. Until [[AnimalStereotypes his typical wolverine nature]] asserts itself, of course.

* FridgeLogic: It's been stated several times, that otter tails are short and stubby. As opposed to the long trailing ones from our world. This makes sense, seeing as they walk upright, it would be a pain to have that huge thing dragging along behind you wherever you go, slowing you down or tripping other people. So evolution was in play, seeming to have shortened it. (If they were ever long in that world) In that case it would also be true with other animals with similar tails though Snooth the Kangaroo's tail is never brought up, nor the tails of other similar creatures like Wallabies. * FridgeBrilliance: Jon-Tom when he first arrives, is outright disgusted by the new world. But as the series progresses the swearing, drugs and offhand mention of sex, lessens. Because he is slowing accepting it, and realizing it's not as bad as it first seems. Once he fully accepts it most of the mature stuff is almost completely absent. Showing a better, brighter world. We are seeing the story through his eyes after all. ** The perambulator at the end of book 5 ended up crossing into our world. It would make sense if traveling between worlds, left a tear in space and time. A tear that opened a path between worlds? Maybe situated inside a cave? * HeadScratchers: How did Braglob know that Talea was Jon-Tom's girlfriend? [[spoiler: As powerful a wizard as he is, nowhere in the books implied that wizards could read minds. And the Perambulator wouldn't tell him, because it doesn't supply information it simply alters reality. The only thing I can think of, is that the Perambulator perhaps works similar to the "Improbability Drive" from HitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy in which it can create massive coincidences.]] * TearJerker: Mudge's emotional breakdown when he thinks Jon-Tom is going away for good. Especially the fact he for the most part seemed to hate Jon-Tom's guts throughout the first four books, and many times wouldn't think twice about just abandoning him. [[spoiler: A large furry mass struck him square in the chest. He staggered backward with Mudge clinging to him. The otter was sobbing uncontrollably. 'You ain't comin' back!' black nose and whiskers were inches from his face and tears were pouring down fuzzy cheeks. "I know you ain't, once you get back to your own world through that bloody 'ole in the ground you'll be back in familiar surroundin',. back among your own kind, an' you'll forget all about us. About poor ol' Mudge, An' Weegee, and that senile 'ardshell Clothahump who needs you to look after 'im in 'is old age, and even about Talea. You'll get back to where everythin's comfortable and safe an' relaxin' an' you won't be comin' back 'ere.'' He grabbed the vee of Jon-Tom's indigo shirt and shook him.]]
