* IHaveToWashMyHair: Did Magrat not wash her hair so that she would always be available, or did she stop washing her hair so that she would always have the excuse available?

* CompleteMonster: Lady Felmet is modeled after LadyMacbeth, only more sadistic and cruel and without the guilt. The Duchess participated in the overthrow and murder of King Verence I for her husband Leonald to gain the throne for her own benefit and power. Once she inherits her position, she encourages a brutal suppression of peasants and witches alike while using the Fool to spread a propaganda campaign. Revealing herself as a {{sadist}} who loves ColdBloodedTorture, Lady Felmet personally engages in inventive torture with captives. When [[NeverMessWithGranny Granny Weatherwax]] removes the mental walls she put up and shows her all the evil in her own mind, she shrugs it off. Unlike [[HeelRealization most ''Discworld'' villains]], the Duchess is fully aware how evil she is. She just doesn't care.
* FridgeLogic: Some of the ramifactions of the witches moving Lancre in time. The people don't generally seem too dismayed, but fans have wondered about Esk, the Lancre-born female wizard from Equal Rites. [[spoiler:This may possibly be alluded to in Discworld/IShallWearMidnight - but [[ShrugOfGod possibly not]].]]

*** Lily was already older than Esme. Her relatively-youthful appearance is due to all the ethical tensions in Esme's life, that Lily never allowed to bother her. Lily's abuse of mirror-magic may also be somewhat to blame for her unchanging looks.

* HilariousInHindsight: The BoisterousBruiser king is murdered in a fake accident, his successor isn't actually the heir because the queen was having an affair, his actual son grows up with no idea of his noble birth, one protagonist is noted for the ability to possess the bodies of animals, and there's a snarky dwarf who has a way with words. [[ASongOfIceAndFire Sound familiar?]].

* OneSceneWonder: In the AnimatedAdaptation, the demon the witches sum up becomes this in a way he wasn't in the book -- partly this is because he's the best-looking, best-animated character in the miniseries, but a lot of it is also due to the added joke of his voice suddenly goes from EvilSoundsDeep to high-pitched UpperClassTwit when Granny tells him to stop mucking about.
