* NightmareFuel: In some cases. Especially when accident-prone 'rabbits' come into the picture. Also the invisible castle and how to get one *shudder*.
* {{Squick}}: The wizard disposal method, amongst other things.
* WhatAnIdiot: It becomes clear rather quickly that Anteroll isn't very bright. In ''Dealing With Dragons'', he accidentally lets it slip that a security spell his father proposed for Kazul's lair was very easy to do (judging by Zemenar's reaction, Cimorene guessed that he was planning to pretend it was difficult, as an excuse to snoop around). In ''Searching For Dragons'', he comes to visit Cimorene in, what she points out, is a very suspicious manner (he comes blundering in the back way without announcing himself or bringing a candle). In ''Calling On Dragons'', he is captured by one of Morwen's ''cats'' (he was shrunk at the time granted, but still), and is referred to by Telemaine as "the wizard Cimorene keeps melting". The epilogue has Cimorene tell how he was so determined to get revenge on her that when he found her hiding place, he walked right past Mendabar's magic sword and Cimorene's child and tripped over Kazul's tail before he was melted. In ''Talking To Dragons'', he completely loses any intelligence he has, being melted by Cimorene in the ''first chapter'' just after boasting that he will kill her and take the sword and Daystar. From there, he continues to ineffectually stalk Daystar until he [[spoiler:is finally gotten rid of when he decides to sic a monster on Cimorene...right after her son just learned how to effectively wield the sword that ''channeled all magic in the forest''.]]
