** Being wrongfully accused of and arrested for attempted murder and embezzlement is nightmarish enough; but it's also strongly implied that if Vetinari is pardoned by a new Patrician (thereby completing his character assassination), he'll meet a swift end through being 'retired' afterwards, with no chance to clear his name. Even worse is the fact that Vetinari is unable to argue in his own defence, as his head injury wipes his memory of the attack.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: At one point, Mr. Pin thinks about how Mr. Tulip mainlines bath salts. This is simply part of the joke about Tulip snorting everything he can find. [[OnlyInFlorida Thirteen years later, the mention of bath salts has its own special meaning.]]

** The final fate of the New Firm, or at least, the thing that finally gets them. It's a lot like, if [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd]] had ended up in that crematorium instead of Bond in ''Film/DiamondsAreForever''... drawn out for ''pages'' of anticipation.

** Likewise, the equally vague allusions to Mr. Tulip's childhood. It's suggested he's forgotten most of it for a ''reason''.

* HilariousInHindsight: Look at the cover currently pictured on the main page, where Vetinari has blond hair. This was ''long'' before TheFilmOfTheBook of ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', which cast a blond Vetinari and surprised many readers by doing so.

* OlderThanTheyThink: The "----ing" joke first showed up in ''Discworld/{{Mort}}''.
** An in ''{{Sourcery}}'', one of the senior wizards had studied languages for so long he can pronounce parentheses (pretty cool, huh?).
