[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scan0012_6945.jpg]]

The first written, first published, second book chronologically and the most famous of the seven books of ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia''.

Some forty years after the events of the {{prequel}} ''[[Literature/TheMagiciansNephew The Magician's Nephew]]'', four siblings (Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie) pass through a magical wardrobe owned by "Professor Kirke" [[TrappedInAnotherWorld into the land of Narnia]] which has been cursed with eternal winter by Jadis, the White Witch, who calls herself the "queen" of Narnia. [[BecauseDestinySaysSo In accordance with the prophecy]], the children, helped by Aslan (Turkish for "[[MeaningfulName Lion]]"), defeat her, and are jointly crowned as the four Kings and Queens of Narnia. [[DistantFinale After fourteen years]], the children accidentally return through the wardrobe, reverting to childhood.

The action of ''Literature/TheHorseAndHisBoy'' takes place during their reign.

----
!This book provides examples of:

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwarfs]], Wolves, Minotaurs, Hags, Harpies, Giants and all the other races that are loyal to the witch initially appear this way, but it's later shown a good portion of them do have Good members, as seen by dwarfs, a giant, and even wolves rescued from the Witch's castle, who later fight for Aslan. Later books and films show many good Narnian dwarves, giants, and minotaurs. Indeed, if you only read those books you'd think the dwarfs are just another of the many AlwaysLawfulGood races in Narnia, with only a few bad apples. [[spoiler:Until the revolt of a large amount of them in ''Literature/TheLastBattle''.]] However, in the only other appearance of a Hag and a Werewolf, in ''Literature/PrinceCaspian'', it's implied that they really are AlwaysChaoticEvil.
* AnIcePerson: The White Witch has ice powers. She froze all of Narnia, you know.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Lucy, when she first comes to Narnia, wonders why there's a street light in the middle of the forestů a forest she discovered inside of a wardrobe.
** Although traveling through wormholes is NOT contrary to our understanding of physics. A streetlight put up in an area no human is likely to go is quite different, and a talking rodent is even further down the line of bizarre.
* AsYouKnow: Done in an aside from the narrative, as Lewis notes several times that his readers all know better than to shut themselves into a wardrobe. This was probably done to avoid inspiring kids to lock themselves in by mistake. See also DontTryThisAtHome. Ironically, one of the outakes from the 2005 film shows the actor of Edmund shutting the door behind him as he climbs into the wardrobe...and demonstrating why Lewis was careful to emphasize the warning against doing that.
* AuthorAvatar: People who know about Lewis's life story will recognise definite parallels between him and the grumpy professor the children go to stay with.
* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: For all four Pevensies at the end. Aslan himself is there.
* BatmanGambit: If the Witch had stuck with her original plan, she could have killed Edmund as a traitor and even Aslan would have had to abide by this justice. Then, the prophecy would have been delayed. Instead, [[spoiler: she kills Aslan in Edmund's stead, accepting his offer to take Edmund's place. Yet Aslan ReadTheFinePrint stating that the Deep Magic would correct an innocent being killed in a traitor's stead, undoing the action. He knew the White Witch would be unable to resist killing her greatest adversary, saving them both.]]
* BeingEvilSucks: This realization spurs Edmund to make his HeelFaceTurn.
* BigBad: Jadis is the evil queen causing all the problems here, from the winter to the oppression.
* BigBrotherBully: Edmund is this to Lucy and sees Peter as this to him, especially in the film.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Peter is quick to defend Lucy when Edmund [[KickTheDog lets her down]] after the second visit to Narnia. He also rushes to Susan's defence when Maugrim attacks her, using his sword to kill Maugrim.
* BigGood: Aslan is TheParagon of goodness in this world. The kids are the main characters, but he is the one who saves the day. This is lampshaded by the Beavers.
* BigWhat: The White Witch, when Edmund tells her that Aslan is in Narnia and due to be at the Stone Table.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: The White Witch finds a shivering child in the snow, is about to turn him into stone, and then decides that one isn't that much trouble. She decides to wrap him in her mink coat to protect him from the cold, offer a hot drink and Turkish Delight made out of magic. Edmund naturally gets taken in by her kindly appearances and promises to make him her heir. Then when he goes to betray his family to her, the mask falls off as she screams at him for not bringing everyone else.
* BlitzEvacuees: The Pevensie children
* BreakTheHaughty: Edmund starts off arrogant and becomes more so under the witch's influence. Then she decides he's more useful as a prisoner.
* CantKillYouStillNeedYou: The Beavers tell the children that they can't go to the witch to rescue Tumnus or Edmund because if they do, she'll just turn them to stone then and there. If she only has Edmund, however, in her arrogance she would keep him alive as a hostage and bait for her siblings to show up. No one is happy about this, but they agree to try and make it to the Stone Table and Aslan. Later on Jadis realizes that the Pevensies and Beavers have made it to the Stone Table with the thaw and spring, and thus there's no point to keeping Edmund alive. Fortunately, Aslan's allies stage a rescue before she can stab Edmund as a traitor.
* CaptainObvious: See DeadpanSnarker below.
* ChekhovsArmy: The statues in the Witch's castle courtyard. Edmund first comes across them when he arrives at the castle, and is scared by what he thinks at first is a lion about to pounce before realizing it's a statue. At the end, Aslan brings the statues back to life and they join in the final battle with the other creatures on Aslan's side, including Peter, Edmund and the Beavers.
* ChekhovsGift: Quite a few things given to Peter, Susan and Lucy by Father Christmas:
** Peter's sword, which he uses to kill Maugrim and to fight in the battle at the end.
** Susan's horn, which she uses to alert Peter when Maugrim attacks shortly after they meet Aslan at the Stone Table.
** Lucy's healing cordial, which is used at the end after the battle to heal the wounded, starting with Edmund.
* ChekhovsGun:
** Lucy's handkerchief. She gives it to Tumnus as a parting gift after her first wardrobe trip. Later on, he passes it on to the Beavers on "getting wind of his arrest". They then show it to the Pevensies. This convinces Lucy that the Beavers will help her and her siblings.
** The fur coats inside the wardrobe. Lucy finds them inside the wardrobe when she first climbs into it, and thinks the snow on the ground is mothballs. When all four siblings find themselves in Narnia, they put the coats on to keep warm, and at the end of the book, they find themselves back in the real world when they start walking through the coats inside of tree branches.
** The hill where the Stone Table is. It's where the characters have to go in order to meet up with Aslan. It's also where Aslan is killed in Edmund's place by the Witch, and restored to life because of the "deeper magic from before the dawn of time" that the Witch did not know about.
* CreepySouvenir: The whole ''garden'' of people/animals the White Witch has turned into stone. In the Walden Media film version, she also wears Aslan's shaved-off mane into battle.
* CrystalDragonJesus: Aslan, AKA "Lion Jesus". He's the son of "The Emperor Across the Sea" and enacts Christ's Passion to save a sinner.
* DarkActionGirl: The White Witch is usually an EvilSorcerer but she can join close combat too. She certainly participates in the battle at Beruna. The animated film and TV series have her as a LadyOfBlackMagic while the live action film shows her actively fighting.
* DisneyDeath: Edmund gets stabbed by Jadis. He's definitely near death until Lucy's healing cordial revives him.
* DisneyVillainDeath: Averted in the book and most adaptations - Aslan crushes [[spoiler: Jadis]] by jumping on her (in the film it's implied he ''eats'' her). But in the BBC TV series, Aslan roars and causes her to fall off a wall.
* DisproportionateRetribution: After spring arrives and ends the EndlessWinter, the dwarf says it's Aslan's doing. The Witch furiously warns that if either the dwarf or Edmund say the name again, she will instantly kill them.
* DistinguishedGentlemansPipe: Professor Kirke.
* DontTryThisAtHome: Every time someone climbs into the wardrobe, to the point where one begins to wonder if it's an inside joke or a RunningGag.
* DreamingOfAWhiteChristmas: Averted in that in Narnia, it is always winter and never Christmas and when [[spoiler:Christmas finally does come, it heralds a thaw]].
* DubNameChange: Maugrim, the wolf servant of the White Witch, had his name changed to Fenris Ulf in earlier American editions (which also changed Peter's first title from "Wolfsbane" to "Fenrisbane"). Then they went back to using Maugrim.
* EndlessWinter: The White Witch casts a spell on Narnia so that it is always winter but never Christmas.
* EvilAlbino: The White Witch is deathly pale. It's implied this is because she's not human; only looks the part.
** A later book in the series (a prequel) reveals that this is the result of her eating from the fruit of a magical tree she's picked herself. The fruit heals those it's given to by others in compassion, but when selfishly consumed with the intent of gaining power or immortality has the side effect of turning the eater snow pale.
* EvilIsDeathlyCold: The White Witch, and her effects on the Narnian environment, are all cold, and evil.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler: Aslan did it knowing exactly what would happen if he were to die. [[LoopholeAbuse In more than one way]]]].
* FaceDoodling: Edmund, during his nasty period, rather tackily scribbles a mustache and glasses on a lion that's been turned to stone, telling himself it must be Aslan himself, TakenForGranite.
* FaeriesDontBelieveInHumansEither: Tumnus the faun reacts this way to Lucy the first time he meets her, and owns a book called ''Is Man a Myth?''
* FauxActionGirl:
** Susan. She's an archer, and at least in the film, a good one. Yet she's never part of any of the battle scenes, being limited to calling for Peter's help and shooting one stray dwarf in the ending.
** The White Witch becomes one in the BBC adaptations. She never does any fighting herself, save for using her wand to turn a few people to stone. And she runs away when Aslan returns.
* FearsomeFoot: Being a giant, Giant Rumblebuffin in the final battle uses not only his club to help defeat the White Witch's army, but his feet also crush dozens of them.
* FirstNameBasis: We only find out the children's last name in later books (it's "Pevensie").
* FollowTheWhiteRabbit:
** A robin leads the children to Mr. Beaver.
** Inverted later when they are hunting for a stag, and it leads them back to the gate to the normal world.
* FoodChains: See GRatedDrug below.
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** Before all four siblings head to Narnia, Peter and Edmund are looking at a suit of armor. Both Peter and Edmund end up being knighted by Aslan later in the story: Peter is knighted after saving Susan from Maugrim, and Edmund is knighted on the battlefield at the end.
** Edmund is falsely promised to be made King of Narnia by the White Witch. After he breaks her wand in the final battle and the Witch is killed by Aslan, Edmund is indeed made a king, but by Aslan, when he, Peter, Susan and Lucy are crowned Kings and Queens of Narnia.
* ForWantOfANail: By sheer luck, Lucy meets Tumnus the faun, a kindly Narnia resident who doesn't turn her into the witch. Edmund on the other hand meets the White Witch, and gets tempted to her side. It could have easily gone the other way, depending on who the children encountered.
* TheFriendsWhoNeverHang: A variation. Susan and Edmund barely interact in the stories. They're the only two Pevensies not to get any scenes alone together.
* FurryConfusion: The BBC Series has [[PettingZooPeople people in animal costumes]], actual animals and animated creatures all on the screen at once. At one point, Maugrim even appears to shapeshift into a regular wolf, though he's supposed to be a regular wolf anyways.
* GRatedDrug: The White Witch's Turkish Delight. WordOfGod states it's an [[EvilTastesGood analogue for sin]].
* GenderEqualEnsemble: Two boys (Peter and Edmund) and two girls (Susan and Lucy).
* GenreSavvy: All the Pevensies, seeing as they're children who are pretty familiar with fairytales, and (rightly) assume a fairytale world will work according to fairytale rules. For example, their decision to follow the robin is based on Peter's observation that robins are [[AlwaysLawfulGood always good birds in books]].
* GentleGiant: The narration points out that seeing a giant beaming is a very rare thing, so Giant Rumblebuffin, being a good giant, is one of these.
* GoodAnimalsEvilAnimals: The book splits talking beasts more or less along the standard lines between those on the side of the Witch and those on the side of Aslan. This doesn't show up so much in the rest of the series when Narnia was united, but "evil" animals don't show up much at all then.
* GrimUpNorth: It's grim everywhere in Narnia due to the Hundred Year Winter, but particularly near the Witch's Castle in the north.
* HeelFaceTurn:
** Edmund, in the second half, when he realizes that BeingEvilSucks and Aslan saves him.
** Mr. Tumnus, after his HeelRealization while in the company of Lucy.
* HeroicSacrifice: Aslan pulls one of these to save Edmund. The Witch says Edmund is a traitor and his blood is her property, so Aslan offers himself in Edmund's place. He knew, however, that due to deeper magic from before the dawn of time that the Witch is unaware of, he would be restored to life afterwards.
* HonorBeforeReason: It's said that Lucy was tempted to say she just made up the story of the wardrobe just so she could happily play with her siblings again. But as a very truthful girl, she's unable to bring herself to lie.
* HumansAreSpecial: Only four true humans can undo Jadis's curse, to the point that she considers them dangerous. The Beavers state that the White Witch wants to appear human, but she's descended from Lilith of the Jinn and the giantesses.
* IcePalace: The Witch's castle was created by her own power.
* InterdimensionalTravelDevice: The wardrobe allows travel between Earth and Narnia -- sometimes.
* ItIsDehumanizing: The White Witch refers to Edmund like this a few times.
* ItOnlyWorksOnce: The White Witch's justification to Edmund for why she cannot give him more Turkish Delight in the sleigh. The wardrobe is a straighter example. Although it transports the children to Narnia three times in the story, Professor Kirke says it won't work again afterwards.
* IOweYouMyLife: A variant; when the children find out Tumnus was arrested, Peter asks Mr. Beaver if there's a way to help him since Tumnus saved Lucy from the White Witch. Mr. Beaver bluntly tells him no, that only Aslan can help. Aslan restores Tumnus and the other statues to life.
* ItWasAGift: Father Christmas's gifts to the Pevensies.
* {{Jerkass}}: Edmund is rude, arrogant and sells out for candy.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Mellows out into this at the end.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Thanks to a bit of GenreSavvy, Edmund points out to Peter as they follow the robin that they have no idea whether the robin is good or not, and that it could lead them into a trap. He also points out they (bar Lucy) have no way of knowing whether Tumnus really did save Lucy or not, and that they have no idea of the way home from where they are. Peter says he didn't think of that.
* KarmicJackpot: The Beavers get this. They take in the siblings from the cold after finding them wandering around, feed them and educate them about Narnia. They also remain a ReasonableAuthorityFigure pair about the kids understandably wanting to save Tumnus from the witch and learning more about Aslan. Father Christmas when he comes mends the lodge and offers a new sewing machine for Mrs. Beaver for when they're gone, meaning they won't return to find their home ransacked from the wolves. Also, Aslan honors them as heroes for bringing the Pevensies to them.
* KickTheDog: After Edmund and Lucy return from Narnia, Lucy tells him to tell Peter and Susan about it, hoping he will back up her story. Instead, he decides to let her down and she runs off in tears. After she rushes out, Edmund goes on to insult her behind her back, saying, "There she goes again. What's the matter with her? That's the worst of young kids, they always--" before Peter tells him to shut up. The narration even says Edmund chose to do it because it was the meanest and most spiteful thing he could think of to do.
** The Witch and her minions do this to Aslan before the Witch kills him by tying him up, shaving his mane off, and muzzling him.
* KidHeroAllGrownUp: Two examples. The children grow up to be royalty in Narnia, but return to our world and get de-aged and we find out that Diggory was a KidHero in ''Literature/TheMagiciansNephew''.
* LightIsNotGood: Jadis, the ''White'' Witch is evil. Notable in that Tilda Swinton was going to portray her as a brunette but producers thought she looked "too gothic".
* LimitedWardrobe, ironically: Examining the pictures closely reveals that the children are always wearing the same clothes (bar the addition of fur coats for the third entry to Narnia) despite the early chapters of the book taking place over several days. Perhaps [[JustifiedTrope justified]], given the time period the book is set in.
* MagicPants: At the end, the now adult Pevensies in their royal garb reenter the wardrobe from Narnia and return as children (or teens) back in their English clothing.
* TheMarvelousDeer: The wish-granting stag -- that is not caught. Instead the hunt sends them back home.
* MenAreTheExpendableGender: Father Christmas [[ValuesDissonance infamously]] tells Susan and Lucy, "Battles are ugly when women fight." This is why Peter gets a sword, Susan gets a bow, and Lucy a dagger (self-defense only).
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Tumnus and other Narnia residents are ordered to turn in any humans they find, on the threat of being tortured and then turned into stone. When he finds Lucy, lures her to his cave, and feeds her so that she'll fall asleep, Tumnus finds that he can't do it. He sobs and confesses to her, before escorting her back to the wardrobe.
* TheMole:
** Edmund, for the first half, although it is revealed to the reader at the start of the plot thread.
** [[spoiler: Jadis also fooled Edmund into thinking she was on his side long enough for him to lure his siblings to Narnia]].
** Mr. Tumnus was this to Lucy, then oddly became a ReverseMole to the Witch after his HeelRealization
* MrExposition: The beavers fulfill this role, and it avoids AsYouKnow territory since the kids are new to that universe and really don't know any of the expository material.
* MustacheVandalism: Edmund does this to the [[TakenForGranite stone lion]] in the witch's courtyard.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone:
** Edmund's reaction when the White Witch turns a dinner party to stone for refusing to deny it was provided by Father Christmas over his protests. At that point, Edmund realizes the evil he has sided with and wishes with all his heart that he could undo what he has done. Fortunately, Aslan later helps him do just that.
** Mr. Tumnus reaches it immediately when he tries to kidnap Lucy for the Witch. Since he's a nice guy who was only doing it on pain of being turned to stone, she's able to talk him out of it.
* MyRuleFuIsStrongerThanYours: Aslan and Jadis argue about the Deep Magic and she seems to win. In the end it turns out there are things he knows about it that she doesn't.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Edmund absentmindedly tells the White Witch that Lucy met a faun the last time she was in Narnia, not realizing he's just blown Mr Tumnus's cover. The faun may have got away with it had it not been for that (though he does say the trees are on Jadis's side too).
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: The Witch's preference for turning people to stone and keeping them as trophies in her castle, as opposed to just killing them, means that Aslan can resurrect them all and lead them as reinforcements in the battle.
* NightmareFuel: Invoked by the LemonyNarrator, who explains that if he were to describe some of the more hideous creatures, your parents probably wouldn't let you read this book.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Tumnus realizes he can't give up Lucy to the Witch and allows her to return home. When he stumbles into Narnia, Edmund unknowingly betrays him to the Witch, so that when all four of them make it to Narnia, they find he has been captured. It's later revealed he was turned into a statue before being restored to life by Aslan before the final battle.
* NoodleIncident: The talk Aslan gives to Edmund after his {{Heel Face Turn}}. The narrator tells us it's a moment that belongs to only the two of them, and he won't intrude.
* TheNounAndTheNoun ...And the noun.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Edmund in the final battle, as Peter tells Aslan after the battle is won. He singlehandedly kept the battle going by fighting his way towards the White Witch and instead of directly attacking her, he smashed her wand with his sword, destroying it and taking away her ability to turn people into stone, and giving Peter's side a fighting chance.
* OhCrap:
** Lucy has one when she realizes she is the child that Tumnus intends to hand over to the White Witch. Fortunately, he decides he can't do it.
** Peter when Edmund tells him as they follow the robin that they don't have any idea of the way home from where they are.
** Peter, Susan, Lucy and the Beavers first when Lucy reveals Edmund has been in Narnia alone and didn't tell her what he'd done and who he'd met, meaning he had met the White Witch and effectively joined her side. Then they get another one when Mrs Beaver reveals the Witch will set out to catch them when Edmund reveals to her where they are.
** The White Witch at the end when Aslan appears and launches himself at her. Doubly so because she had killed him and didn't know he had been restored to life.
* PinnedToTheWall: The White Witch sticks a sword through Peter's chain mail sleeve, pinning him to the ground so she can kill him.
* PortalSlam: The wardrobe's door.
* PragmaticAdaptation: One junior stage adaptation cuts out the prose that reveals the White Witch is evil and Tumnus is good, while having the trips to Narnia happen within minutes rather than with long months in between. This makes it more mysterious to the audience unfamiliar with the book, about if Tumnus or the White Witch is telling the truth, up to Edmund betraying his family.
* PrettyInMink: Fur coats are necessary in the deep and eternal cold.
** FurAndLoathing: Jadis is described as having a magnificent ermine coat.
* PropheciesRhymeAllTheTime:
** [[DownplayedTrope Almost.]]
-->''When Adam's flesh and Adam's bone''\\
''Sits at Cair Paravel in throne,''\\
''The evil time will be over and done.''
** Susan lampshades this in the film:
---> '''Susan:''' You know, that doesn't really rhyme.
** However it is what is known as an "Eye rhyme". Each line ends with "-one"making it look like it SHOULD rhyme.
* RainRainGoAway: The children are prompted to explore the house (and thus kick off the plot) because it's too rainy to do anything outside.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Subverted. It looks as if Edmund will suffer this after redeeming himself by destroying the Witch's wand, but he is saved by Lucy's cordial.
* RuleOfSymbolism: As a Christian allegory, nearly every one of the book's major plot points ties back into a corresponding plot point in the Gospels in some way or another.
** The Pevensie siblings come to see themselves as Aslan's disciples, and vow to carry out his will in Narnia by fighting the White Witch. {{The leader}} of the group is named "[[MeaningfulName Peter]]".
** Edmund's betrayal of the group (for Turkish Delight) is based on Judas Iscariot's betrayal of Jesus (for 20 pieces of silver). Aslan chooses to peacefully give himself up to the White Witch after his betrayal, just as Jesus chooses to peacefully give himself up to the Romans.
** Aslan's death and resurrection at the Stone Table is based on Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection. The innocent Aslan chooses to die in place of the traitor Edmund, just as the sinless Jesus chooses to die to atone for the sins of humanity. Before killing him, the White Witch's minions [[KickTheDog humiliate Aslan]] by binding him and forcibly shaving his mane, just as the Roman soldiers humiliate Jesus by stripping him naked, gambling for his clothes, forcing him to drink sour wine, and crowning him with thorns.
** The two girls in the quartet, Susan and Lucy, stay with Aslan to comfort him before his death, and are the first to find him alive after his miraculous resurrection, just as a group of women close to Jesus ([[DependingOnTheWriter including Mary Magdalene and at least one other woman]]) witness his crucifixion and first realize that he's alive after finding his tomb empty.
** The Stone Table, which represents the most ancient laws of Narnia, symbolically stands in for the divine law of the Old Testament (which was engraved on '''stone table'''ts given to Moses). Aslan's death and resurrection causes the table to crack, signifying the beginning of a new age built on Aslan's law. In the Christian Bible, Jesus' death and resurrection signifies the beginning of the New Testament, and the beginning of a new age based on Jesus' teachings.
* RunningGag: The first few chapters are insistent on reminding you what a very foolish thing it is to lock oneself into a wardrobe. It's said that Lewis wrote this in so that young readers playing pretend would not lock themselves in real-life wardrobes. In one of the movie's HilariousOuttakes, Skander Keyes (Edmund) does get himself locked in the wardrobe.
* SavageWolves: Maugrim and his pack work for the witch as a secret police and enforcers.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere:
** Peter, Susan, Lucy and the Beavers do this after Edmund slips away, as the Beavers [[OhCrap realize they will be captured and likely killed if they stay at the dam]]. Sure enough, when the wolves sent by the Witch arrive there, they find the dam empty.
** After the White Witch is killed in the final battle, her remaining forces either surrender or do this.
* SiblingRivalry: Edmund and Lucy, with more on Edmund's part, due to the fact that he enjoys tormenting her. Fortunately, they got better.
* SkewedPriorities: Coupled with ValuesDissonance. Father Christmas says to Susan "battles are ugly when women fight". He's saying she shouldn't fight because she's a girl, as opposed to because she's just a child. It's fine for Peter to fight in battle when he's only a year or so older than her. (Lucy gets a dagger to defend herself. Edmund isn't present to be compared with). However, Susan gets a bow and arrows. This may be FairForItsDay, considering that even the U.S. military didn't allow women in combat zones at all until the 1990s.
* SpringIsLate: By about a ''hundred years''.
* SupernaturalAid: Father Christmas' gifts to the Pevensies such as a HealingPotion.
* TakenForGranite: How the White Witch deals with people she doesn't like.
* TakeMeInstead: Aslan offers to die in Edmund's place, and Jadis accepts.
* TenderTears: Susan and Lucy shed these during Aslan's Passion.
* TheyStillBelongToUsLecture: The Witch tries to reclaim Edmund after his HeelFaceTurn by telling the other heroes that he is a traitor and his blood is her property. [[spoiler:The problem is, according to the laws of magic in Narnia, she's right. This is why Aslan has to sacrifice himself in Edmund's place.]]
* ThickerThanWater: Peter says that even if Edmund did mean to betray them to the White Witch, he's still their brother and they have to save him.
* ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself: Aslan tells the others to stay back and let Peter fight Maugrim alone. It directly echoes the story of Edward III saying of his son, the Black Prince, at the Battle of Crécy, "Let the boy win his spurs." (The spurs were a symbol of knighthood.)
* ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil: One of the consequences of Edmund's GRatedDrug usage is a lowering of his IQ.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Edmund likes Turkish Delight, and he mentions it to the witch.
* TranshumanTreachery: Mr. Beaver invokes this trope as he advises the Pevensie children that if something claims to be, used to be, or may become human, "keep an eye on it and feel for your hatchet."
* TooDumbToLive: Lucy to a minor extent. Tumnus tells her that if the White Witch finds her then she will be killed or turned to stone. Thus he escorts her back to the wardrobe entrance at the lamp post, so she can escape. But she tries to prove to her siblings that the adventure happened, except she can't because the wardrobe is back to normal. A few months later, she tries again just to make sure that it really happened. This leads to Edmund following her and meeting the White Witch, but Lucy could have easily met her as well. Then when her siblings finally find the place, she only tells them much later about the White Witch when they find Tumnus's place ransacked.
* TheVamp: The White Witch for Edmund but with candy instead of sex. The movie sure kicks up that subtext, however.
* VictoryGuidedAmnesia: After being crowned Kings and Queens of Narnia, the children slowly forget their old life on Earth -- until one day, while out riding...
* WeaponOfChoice: Father Christmas's gifts to Peter, Susan, and Lucy include a [[HeroesPreferSwords sword]] and shield, a bow and quiver of arrows, and a dagger respectively.
* WhamLine: In-universe. "I say, where's Edmund?" from Lucy during the dinner scene with the Beavers. It alerts everyone to the fact that Edmund is missing, and they soon realise [[OhCrap Edmund is on his way to betray them to the White Witch]].
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse:
** The animals having a dinner party before being turned to stone by the Witch (leading to Edmund's HeelFaceTurn) are never mentioned again. Lewis was even asked about this by one of his readers (or the reader's mom) and hastily wrote back a WordOfGod that ''of course'' the animals at the dinner party got turned back, just not on stage, and he was very sorry the child was distressed about the issue.
** Also, the Dwarf that drives the Witch's sleigh is a fairly prominent aspect of the story, yet his fate goes unaccounted for in the book. In the film, he gets shot by Susan in his attempt to finish off an injured Edmund.
* WinterRoyalLady: Although not fitting the title part of the trope, Jadis fits the other parts; calls herself queen, dresses in winter colors and styles etc.
* WomanInWhite: The White Witch.
