* HarsherInHindsight: Only if you read the books in the order they were released in, but in Stormchaser, Hubble [[spoiler:dies the moment he leaves the Twilight Woods]] and Stope Boltjaw [[spoiler:actually wanders off [[FateWorseThanDeath into the woods themselves]]]] and both characters are subsequently forgotten. In the later two books of the Quint Trilogy, both have their characters [[RoundedCharacter seriously fleshed out]]. Unfortunately, [[DoomedByCanon they're still both going to die]].
* HoYay: Twig and Cowlquape, ''Midnight over Sanctaphrax''. So very much.
-->Cowlquape: And I'd follow you anywhere, even... even out there, into Open Sky.
** Rook and Xanth!
** Also Sagbutt and Filbus Queep.
* TheWoobie: And the award goes to... Xanth Filatine!
