Added DiffLines:

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Bean keeps ''trying'' to hook up one with one since most regular guys are too scared of getting killed by her OverprotectiveDad to sleep with her. She ''almost'' hooks up with Sven, the leader of the Land Vikings, only to lose interest when he reveals his true colors.


Added DiffLines:

* CrazyJealousGuy: Elfo toward Bean, something she calls him out on, and he has to learn to overcome.


Added DiffLines:

** Zog starts the episode pleased that being King means he never has to work and everyone has to obey him. After drinking contaminated water, he laments that he beheaded everyone in the kingdom with a medical license and has to be sent to a spa, where he's literally shackled to a table and forced to listen as his spa attendant Chazz tortures him with rambling anecdotes for 24-straight hours. Every time he starts to complain, Chazz hits him with a stick.


Added DiffLines:

* PropheticName: Discussed. Sven is reluctant to drink the "Elixer of Life" due to seeing dead bugs and a dead squirrel floating in it. Elfo tries to cover by claiming it's his pet, Bloaty. Sven understandably doesn't buy that Elfo named his pet squirrel Bloaty ''before'' it died and got bloated up.


Added DiffLines:

** Sven and the Land Vikings. After noticing dead bugs and squirrels floating in the water and making Elfo drink first, Sven ignores Elfo's obvious wincing and gagging and decides to drink it anyway on the grounds that when he's immortal he'll have more time to deliberate such things. Cue food poisoning. He then makes the final mistake of ''[[BerserkButton commanding]]'' Bean to save him when he's dangling over the ocean by his fingers.
* WhatTheHellHero: Bean calls Elfo out on trying to control her, just like her dad.

Added DiffLines:

* WillTheyOrWontThey: InUniverse, the town crier poses this question, at first seeming to be about Bean and Elfo... [[BaitAndSwitchComment before adding to the question to refer to Zog's imminent arrival]].


* FreezeFrameBonus: If you pause at 16:33, you can see what looks like a demonic elf walking in the cavern next to Elfo.

* LampshadeHanging: When Zog returns, he begins narrating his ever action. As he sits down on his throne, Bean points it out, and he states he had a stroke on the way home.

* BaitAndSwitch: When Bean orders the drawbridge lowered for the party, it first looks like no-one's showed up. Then she orders the painting of the countryside (which hasn't been hinted at before, and won't be seen again) lowered as well, at which point it turns out the whole kingdom's shown up.

to:

* BaitAndSwitch: AnArmAndALeg: Elfo's opposed to the party on the grounds that Zog threatened to cut off both his arms if Bean gets up to anything. He was originally going to just cut off ''one'' arm, but it was Elfo's "lucky" arm, so he upped the ante. Oops.

Bean and the Viking Leader, Sven, get to her room, which she pretends to be Bunty's. Elfo is alone among the couples formed in the party, but gets fed up and goes to Bean's room to stop her fooling around from Sven, letting it slip that Bean is the princess and that the court is working on the Elixir of Life. Sven changes his priorities and leaves Bean behind. Elfo realizes he has been a party pooper and hasn't done Bean any favors, and Bean decides to end the party. The two go downstairs to see that the party goers have all been murdered and Sven occupies the throne, who has taken the throne. After being outnumbered greatly, Bean, Elfo and Luci are thrown in front of Sven.

Hearing that Zog is coming back, Bean needs to crack up a plan to get rid of the vikings. She seduces Sven into accepting her as his queen and saying that she has the Elixir of Life. Elfo and her lead the vikings to the castle's polluted fountain and, after Elfo drinks a bit to prove that it's real, convince all the vikings to taste from the fountain. All of them get severe stomachache instantaneously and run into a trap on the middle of the castle, hanging in the trap door on the throne room, which Bean pushes them from.
