YMMV: Monstrous Regiment
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Is Jackrum a leader and father of men, or a dinosaur, stuck in the old ways of fighting a war?
    • The reason he retires is that he realizes it's BOTH.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Tonker and Lofty, our Girls Love duo have quite of a fandom on their own.
  • Genius Bonus: In-universe, a few characters get Polly's references to the folk song "Sweet Polly Oliver" when creating her male alter-ego (although those that do are already smart enough to have figured her out anyway).
    • Anyone familiar with the quotation which the title refers to will probably figure out that all the recruits are women fairly early on.
  • Les Yay: Aside from Tonker and Lofty, Wazzer and Maledicta get very close with Polly.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Jackrum behaves like this sometimes.
    • Blouse's Ping Pong Na´vetÚ also puts him on this side once in a while, but, of course, he's out-bastarded by Jackrum.
    • Jackrum thinks Polly's becoming this. By the end of the book, she's definitely set in at Manipulative Bastard level at least.
