* FanficFuel: The Wood between the Worlds. There are countless, possibly infinite portals to other worlds, but we only see three: Earth, Charn, and Narnia. This book also reveals that, in Earth's ancient history, Atlantis was real and Fairies existed, neither of which is ever mentioned in any of the other books.

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Aslan hammering home the {{Aesop}} about the FantasticNuke makes a lot of sense when you consider that Lewis was writing shortly after WorldWarII, when the UsefulNotes/ColdWar was beginning to escalate and the idea of [[MutuallyAssuredDestruction humanity nuking itself into extinction]] was a very distinct possibility.

* CounterpartComparison: Uncle Andrew and [[Series/LostinSpace Dr. Smith]]. Both are mean, uptight old men who suffer massive VillainDecay until they're little more than pathetic bullies.

* HilariousInHindsight:
** Jadis. Iconic British children's character? [[LastOfHisKind Last surviving member]] of an ancient, decadent species of {{Sufficiently Advanced|Aliens}} HumanAliens? Committed GenocideFromTheInside to prevent a war from ending unfavorably? Visits London and causes a commotion due to her unfamiliarity with Earth? [[Series/DoctorWho Um, hello?]] It gets even better when you read ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'' and see the Witch using the Fourth Doctor's ''modus operandi'' of charming people with sugary jelly candies.

* FandomBerserkButton: Don't call this the first Narnia book. While the earliest in the series' chronology, it was written second-to-last and the multitudes of {{Call Forward}}s are lost on anyone who starts with it. And it really doesn't help that some editions label it as number one.

* MagnumOpus: Considered by some to be the best book in the series. With a [[WorldBuilding vastly expanded multiverse]], creative origin of Narnia and its characters without relying too much on information from the prier books, alluding to alchemy and less traditional tropes in the series, and being a rather great fantasy novel in its own right, it isn't hard to see why.
