* BigBad: Imperatrix in the first two series', Cuddly Dick [[spoiler: or rather, his wig]] in the third.



* BilingualBonus: The tiny furry creatures are called the Parvuli, which means, well, "tiny" in Latin. "Imperatrix" seems to be the name, rather than just the title, of the BigBad, although the word is Latin for "Empress."

** The Elders' Youngers are even worse, at least at first.



** Debbie needs a bottle of Amaretto, elf gets her a bottle of A-More-Hair-To, it will really put hair on your chest.



** In the finale, a Gallant looks at the unconscious body of a demon minion that Wizard Bradley is controlling and says in wonder, "just like a puppet." Extra points for the subsequent AsideGlance.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilOverlord: Every land but Yonderland has fallen to one of these, all working under Imperatrix. Negatus is supposed to be one and technically holds the rank, but is completely incompetent. [[spoiler: In an alternate timeline where Cuddly Dick didn't unite them to secretly take over the competent ones effortlessly conquered the world by force before attacking Earth through the portal.]]


Added DiffLines:

* IgnoredEnamoredUnderling: Rita for Negatus. At one point she seduces him within a VR game just because it's the closest she's gonna get.


Added DiffLines:

** Negatus can't figure out how putting his old rock band back together will possibly help. This one gets extra points since he was talking to himself.


Added DiffLines:

* PuffOfLogic: In the third season finale [[spoiler: this is how time travel works. The final timeline is that Elf and the Time Being warp in and save the day, explain what happened, realize the paradox, and disappear.]]

Added DiffLines:

* KnightOfCerebus: [[spoiler: Cuddly Dick is this, as revealed in ''Elders 11'', when he incites a revolt against the Elders after Debbie leaves Yonderland, successfully kidnaps Nick and snaps an Overlord's spine by hugging him.]]


* [[spoiler: YouCantFightFate: Debbie was born Debbie of Maddox, prophesised as TheChosenOne, her father took her to Earth, where she was adopted as Debbie Walters but she still ended up marrying Peter Maddox and so regained her prophesised name, minus the "of".]]
