* The elves used to provide the page quote for TheFairFolk for a ''reason.'' They're sadistic {{Eldritch Abomination}}s that [[MindRape manipulate the thoughts and emotions of mortals into worshiping them]] and feed off the pasts and futures of other universes because their own is nothing but a barren eternity of ice and snow.
* Pratchett manages to do it with just one word. So horrible it's almost funny:
--> The elves had killed the fish in the pond. Eventually.
* There's one sentence about a "nest of newborn rabbits" and an anthill providing "some amusement..." Cruelty is fashionable right now, and yet this sentence is just... Pure nightmare fuel.
** And this, from beings that gloatingly expect that the land of Lancre will ''be pleased to have them back.'' How alien / evil a mindset is that?
* FridgeHorror: It's a passing remark, but Granny Weatherwax tells Ridcully that elves and humans have bred in the past. Given that the elves have no empathy and their presence is MindRape to mortals, [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty the circumstances were probably not pleasant.]] (Let's hope it was instead a case of LoveRedeems.)
* Since Diamanda has been elf-shot, the elves can [[MindRape control her]] into letting them into the castle. Once they're in, [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness they turn on her:]]
--> [Shawn Ogg] kept repeating, "They just laughed and stabbed her. She didn't even try to run away. It was like they were ''playing."''
* "Yes, there’d been a lot of witches in them days. Too many women found an empty cradle, or a husband that never came home from the hunt. Had been the hunt." -- In short, the witches hinted at in other parts of the book, who had 'minds like iron' (impervious to the glamour) and had originally driven back the elves, were otherwise ordinary women who had lost their husbands and [[AdultFear children]] in the reign of terror.
