* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Ungatt Trunn's Blue Hordes. They insist that they're "The Chosen Ones" and that every creature that isn't one of them is a member of "the lower orders". Also, Riftgard can only be ruled by EvilAlbino "Pure Ferrets", who all speak with ridiculously broad faux-German accents.

Added DiffLines:

* WarningSong: ''Loamhedge'' has the AffablyEvil stoat Flinky sing a song called "Heads Down" ([[https://youtu.be/WWATYSIDqbo the audiobook version can be heard here]]) in which he warns his cohorts to hide during a battle instead of fighting, arguing that fighting is foolish and will certainly get them killed.
-->''When the clouds of arrows fly, keep your heads down''\\
''Let the brave ones charge on by, keep your heads down''\\
''When the hero's blood runs red, and you're scared to raise your head''\\
''Just be glad that you ain't dead, and keep your heads down.''

Added DiffLines:

* LeavingTheNestSong: Invoked and Exploited in ''Triss'', where two of the main characters are running away from home due to what they feel is stifling parenting. They spend the night with an old otter, who sings so many heartrending songs about mothers never seeing their children again that they leave the next morning before she ends up making them go home. Once they're gone, it's revealed the otter knew exactly what she was doing: reminding them their departure wasn't as easy for their parents as they imagined it to be.


%% * PluckyComicRelief: Basil Stag Hare.


Added DiffLines:

** In a semi-BigLippedAlligatorMoment, Keyla and Rose sing the details on Badrang's slaves (including Martin) and where they are to each other in the animated series episode "The Return of Clogg".


* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: The Guosim Windmill maneuver. A regiment of shrews work together to become a rotating shredder of death that cuts down an enemy horde pretty darn well.



* SacrificialLamb / SacrificialLion: Given the whole AnyoneCanDie thing, these are to be expected.

Added DiffLines:

* ProductPromotionParade: A variant without the MerchandiseDriven aspect in ''Mattimeo'', new characters are seemingly introduced like mad (for example, Sir Harry the Muse arrives without any explanation of his origins).

-> '''[[JustForFun/StatlerAndWaldorf Statler]]:''' Wow, I never knew mice could also be religious while also killing up people!\\
'''Waldorf:''' Yeah. Yet only the stupidest of villains who inflitrate a place with a name as stupid as Redwall!\\
'''Both:''' Do-ho-ho-ho-[[OhCrap OH CRA]]-*[[KilledMidSentence slice!]]*\\
'''Matthias:''' That's what you get for insulting the fair name of Redwall Abbey!


* WaifFu: Mariel is a small, young mouse, but she's a fighter, and once she creates her weapon the "Gullwhacker", she can defeat enemies much larger than herself.

* WarIsHell: For a children's series, Redwall doesn't hold back too many punches. In the first book, at the end of the first battle with Cluny's horde, mention is made of the price of the battle - freshly dug graves and a filled infirmary.

Added DiffLines:

* SeaSerpents: Being that of ''Redwall'' a world of {{Talking Animal}}s, the role of sea serpent is taken up by smaller creatures, generally snakes or eels:
** In ''Literature/{{Salamandastron}}'', the Deepcoiler is a monstrous lake snake longer than three shrew logboats.
** In ''Literature/{{Taggerung}}'', Yo Karr is a huge cave eel worshiped by a tribe of pygmy shrews who regularly sacrifice one of their own to it so as to ensure a plentiful catch of migrating elvers. Tagg kills the monster to free the tribe.
** In ''Literature/TheLongPatrol'', an unnamed yellow eel that lived in the well of Kotir Castle (on whose ruins Redwall was built) ends up fighting Skipper when he investigates a cave-in threatening the south wall. After a long subterranean battle, he and the eel's corpse are washed out in the river.


** Cluny the Scourge is visited in his dreams by Martin the Warrior, and is certain that defeating the Abbery will help stop them.

Added DiffLines:

* FiendishFish:
** It features several species of fish treated as dangerous due to their size relative to the TalkingAnimal characters (mostly pike and eels).
** "Doomwyte" featured a wels (a kind of catfish) living in an underground pool considered an oracle by Korvus Scurr and his snake advisor Sicariss. In fact Sicariss only pretends she can talk to the wels due to the fish constantly moving its mouth and rising near the surface after associating the crow's presence with food (as he regularly throws in small reptiles and amphibians). The wels then gets in a fight with an adder [[spoiler:and loses]].

Added DiffLines:

** General Ironbeak also counts.
