- Foe Yay: Clarissa with Jacky.
- Genius Bonus: The series is chock full of folk songs and allusions to folklore. Knowing how the songs and stories go (and some of them are fairly obscure) makes the story much better.
- Les Yay: Following her Fake-Out Make-Out with Jacky, Clarissa seems to have liked it.
- Jacky and Amy in the second book.
- Mam'selle Claudelle de Bourbon towards Jacky.
- Cheng Shih towards Jacky.
- Meaningful Name: Reverend Richard Mather, grandson of the infamous Cotton Mather.
- Moe: Clementine's big blue eyes? Check. Adorable freckles? Check? Lawson-Peabody Standard-Issue Meido Outfit? Double-Check.
- Moral Event Horizon: Scrogg viciously assaults the pregnant Mairead
- Nightmare Fuel: Appropriately, Jacky's nightmares, including Pirates with rotting heads, and being chained to an anchor with other girls and thrown overboard. She rarely can sleep alone.
- They're also signs of PTSD, which is the most understandable thing in the world after what she's gone through.
YMMV / Bloody Jack
