Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A lengthy series of books by Brian Jacques, about a fantasy world in which all kinds of animals are the equivalents of people: they wear clothes, live in buildings, have humanlike societies, et cetera. Yet they also retain some of their animal natures, which usually manifest as specific skills: such as moles being expert workmen, especially at digging, and otters being skilled swimmers and shrimp fishermen.The series centers on Redwall Abbey, a commune devoted to peace, though many who live there are quite capable of defending themselves if attacked. The books take place across a vast time period that may span centuries (it's difficult to tell since the characters measure time in ill-defined "seasons"). Most are complete stand-alone stories, so they can mostly be read in any order. In fact, for a while, Jacques wrote the stories wildly out of chronological order, though in his final years, he set each book further ahead in time than the last one. Only four books (Redwall and Mattimeo, Mariel of Redwall and The Bellmaker) act as direct sequels featuring most of the same characters. Most others do share a few characters, albeit many seasons apart.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Typical stories consist of some villainous horde laying siege to the abbey, while/or some of its inhabitants have to venture somewhere else. Either way, several exciting medieval-style battles ensue until the book's villains are defeated. Despite the lack of an ongoing story, continuity lovers will find much to admire in the consistency of the world surrounding Redwall; each book's inside cover features a map of the territory the story covers, and they all fit together very well (although things may change slightly over the years). Other societies, like the badger lords and hare soldiers of the mountain fortress Salamandastron, or the wandering Guosim shrews, pop up frequently and have a real sense of history to them. As well, some of the most exciting times for fans came with the publications of the books Martin the Warrior and Lord Brocktree, as the eponymous characters are mentioned numerous times in other books as legendary warriors from the past, meaning that with the titles alone Jacques was announcing that we would finally be seeing the real story behind those legends.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The books, by order of publication, are: Redwall (1986) Mossflower (1988) Mattimeo (1989) Mariel of Redwall (1991) Salamandastron (1992) Martin the Warrior (1993) The Bellmaker (1994) Outcast of Redwall (1995) The Pearls of Lutra (1996) The Long Patrol (1997) Marlfox (1998) The Legend of Luke (1999) Lord Brocktree (2000) The Taggerung (2001) Triss (2002) Loamhedge (2003) Rakkety Tam (2004) High Rhulain (2005) Eulalia! (2007) Doomwyte (2008) The Sable Quean (2010) The Rogue Crew (2011)Jacques died of a heart attack on 5 February 2011, leaving his 22nd novel, The Rogue Crew, finished but unpublished; the book was later released on May 3rd, 2011.The Animated Adaptation was made by Nelvana and featured three seasons - the first based on the original book, the second on Mattimeo and the third on Martin the Warrior. It was played on PBS Kids (really) by way of American Public Television in the United States and Teletoon in Canada.An Adventure Game video game series based on the books is currently in the works. In the first game, "The Scout", you play as one of two mice from a village called Lilygrove, not far from Redwall Abbey: while training to become members of a group that protect the village, Lilygrove is suddenly attacked by a band of pirates led by the wearat Scumsnout. The second game, "Escape the Gloomer", is a text-based game set during the events of Mossflower.Recently, an animated film adaptation of the first book as well as an animated series based on the character of Martin the Warrior was greenlit by Netflix with Patrick McHale as the main writer.Has a character page in progress.Not to be confused with Red Cliff.

Anyone Can Die
 Redwall / int_1237828f
comment
Anyone Can Die: The deaths of Rose, Skarlath, Rockjaw Grang and Methuselah prove that point. Not to mention the other numerous deaths throughout the series. Generally, at least one important character will die before the end of the book, and he or she is often greatly loved by the other characters and/or readers. This trope is downplayed after Lord Brocktree. Compared to older Redwall books, the number of deaths on the good guys' side went down significantly, and it was mostly minor characters who were starting to develop that bit the dust, culminating in Rakkety Tam, which had practically no good characters die.

Bloodless Carnage
 Redwall / int_135b9977
comment
The animated series tones down the violence significantly from the book by use of Bloodless Carnage and Gory Discretion Shots. Considering how violent the animated show could get regardless - including the instances where they didn't use a Gory Discretion Shot - this says numbers about how bloody the books could get.

Man of Wealth and Taste: Ublaz dresses himself in the finest clothes and jewels he could get his hands on. His weapons are equally opulent, being a finely crafted silver dagger with sapphires in the handle. He even kickstarted the conflict of Pearls of Lutra by demanding to have the titular pearls for his crown from a tribe of otters at any cost.

Knows the Ropes: Mariel fights with "Gullwhacker", a length of heavy rope with large, hard knots at the ends that make it an effective bludgeoning weapon. When she first washes up on the beach with Identity Amnesia and the rope tied to her, she uses it as an Improvised Weapon out of necessity, but later designs several other versions and even names herself after it.

Geographic Flexibility
 Redwall / int_13b3655d
comment
Geographic Flexibility: Distances between places, and the locations of places are not very consistent between books. A particularly egregious example of this can be seen when in Salamandastron it takes days or weeks to traverse the distance between Redwall and Salamandastron (which is on the coast), whereas in Pearls of Lutra the Abbeyfolk are able to make it in a night of forced marching - but then in the book immediately following it, a big source of tension revolves around whether or not the Long Patrol will arrive in time to assist the Abbeyfolk against a siege despite knowing about it weeks in advance.

The Sable Quean intends for Quean Vilaya to be the main villain, but Zwilt the Shade proves to be more than a Dragon-in-Chief from the onset. Quean Vilaya does not ever take back Big Bad status in time, though she does prove herself to be a nasty piece of work of her own.

Instant Expert
 Redwall / int_13f7da6
comment
Spectacularly subverted in The Rogue Crew with Uggo Wiltud. At the end of the story, Uggo is granted the Sword of Martin, and you'd expect him to become an Instant Expert. Instead, he's just a nervous, scared hedgehog who can barely wield the sword. When he finally encounters Razzid Wearat and Badtooth, he kills Badtooth completely by mistake, his carcass falls on Uggo, and the sword is knocked away. If it hadn't been for Posy picking up the sword and impaling Razzid, the wearat would've killed Uggo.

Captain Plugg Firetail is a villain in the series who doesn't treat his troops entirely like crap, and his troops are the only ones who don't try to seize power, going into Heroic BSoD when he dies (seeing Plugg being taken by a trio of adders may have had something to do with the latter).

comment
I Don't Pay You to Think: This is a common attitude among the vermin commanders in the series. This actually gets one of the villain underlings killed in Mossflower. Sent out to trail Tsarmina, he comes back to one of her commanders and says that he thought he'd better come back and report. At first, he is praised, but then another commander asks "Who told you that you had permission to think?" and tells him go to right back out and find Tsarmina. He does so, and ends up getting killed by Tsarmina, who in a haze of crazed revenge believes him to be her traitor brother Gingivere.

Darker and Edgier
 Redwall / int_14beeefd
comment
Darker and Edgier: According to this SPOILER LADEN Review of Doomwyte, the series went this way with the later novels. Outcast of Redwall has a more mature and tragic tone than what came before it. The Big Bad, Swartt Sixclaw, is a disturbingly realistic sociopath whose only motive is to kill the book's hero for revenge, because the latter wounded him escaping enslavement. Much of the focus is on how Sunflash and Veil both had their lives ruined by Swartt's actions. Sunflash's need for revenge makes it impossible for him to have a normal life, and in the end he loses his best friend Skarlath. Veil's storyline shows how his life was ruined by Swartt abandoning him, and Bryony's mission to bring him back ends with Veil dying in her arms after taking a hit for her. If any of the later books, Rakkety Tam. The book itself isn't exactly darker or edgier (since the series already has loads of Family-Unfriendly Violence), but the Big Bad is. He and his army are all cannibalistic and (relatively) competent villains. But like every other Redwall book, the amount of Sacrificial Lions only ranges between one and five, and the book still has a rather light-hearted feeling to it.

Does This Remind You of Anything?
 Redwall / int_14ed6ab7
comment
Does This Remind You of Anything?: It's called Redwall. Everyone who lives there works together, without monetary reward, for the good of the community as a whole. Everyone eats together, and most sleep in a communal dormitory. It's an abbey, which really do have this kind of communal living. On the other hand, the villains and mooks are violent, dirty, uneducated and amoral at best, working for pay and/or the rewards of battle...

Heel–Face Door-Slam: Bladeribb from Pearls of Lutra. After he gets captured by the Guosim and Martin's friends, he helps guide them to Ublaz's lair without much coercion, despite knowing he'll probably get killed by either Ublaz or one of Martin's companions. Just when it looked like he might have a change of heart and assist the heroes in slaying Ublaz's army, the author Dropped an Iceberg on Him. Gripchun from The Sable Quean, one of the few vermin who gleefully told the Redwallers all the information he knew in regards to the Big Bad's operations. Instead of trying to use him against Vilaya's Ravagers, the Redwallers decide to trade him over to them, and he's subsequently slain by his own army's archers.

Frothy Mugs of Water: Averted. Canon states Matthias is the equivalent of about thirteen during the events of Redwall and you see him drinking ale and cider with the rest, and in British English, there is no such thing as hard or soft cider: cider is alcoholic by definition. In fact, the Food Porn has lots of gratuitous drinking, vermin sentries are easily taken out of action by leaving grog lying around were they will find it, the multiple Poison Chalice Switcheroos only work because of the senior vermin's love of a nice goblet of damson wine, and, in earlier novels, it is strongly implied that some of the adult good guys are dead drunk at the victory feasts.

Unreliable Narrator
 Redwall / int_1869b4b1
comment
Unreliable Narrator: Honestly, with quite a number of books framed as a retelling, of a retelling of a retelling of a story that happened long before their narrator's lifetime, one has to wonder how reliably events are conveyed to us. But a straight and definite example ironically is Martin the Warrior himself - in Mossflower he lies outright about events of his youth we learn from later books. It would be revealed in Martin the Warrior that he kept a vow to keep Rose's home a secret.

Dressing as the Enemy: Midge Manycoats in The Long Patrol is the master of this, to the extent that he managed to trick an entire horde of vermin into believing that he and Tamm - both Hares, who have the single most prominent identifying feature of any species in the series, their ears - were actually a pair of vermin. Mask from Mossflower, who was known as a master of disguise. In order to rescue Gingivere, Ferdy, and Coggs from the dungeons of Kotir, he disguised himself as a fox and managed to not only trick Tsarmina's seer-fox Fortunata, but also be hired as a captain in Tsarmina's army. Brome and Keyla from Martin the Warrior. Jukka the Sling from Lord Brocktree as well.

A Father to His Men: Captain Plugg Firetail is a villain in the series who doesn't treat his troops entirely like crap, and his troops are the only ones who don't try to seize power, going into Heroic BSoD when he dies (seeing Plugg being taken by a trio of adders may have had something to do with the latter). Bane from Mossflower is an earlier example of this trope. He seemed content to share plunder with his troops, and they all seemed to respect him, while having nothing but contempt for Tsarmina, who did treat her troops like crap. Unfortunately, none of this helped his character survive the book. Tramun Clogg is probably the nicest vermin leader in the series who still manages to remain a villain. On the non-villainous side, badger lords are often this, although some remain more aloof. The officers of the Long Patrol almost always fit this trope.

Death by Materialism: Flogga. Sure, you should definitely trust Gabool just because he promised you treasure and completely ignore that he's spent the last several days going crazy and thinks you're Greypatch, the rat he's been trying to kill. Nothing could possibly go wrong. Subverted in The Long Patrol with Friar Butty, who fell into an underground swamp due to the weight of the treasure he was carrying and was nearly devoured by toads and mudfish. Luckily, he got saved by Shad at the last minute. Gruntan Kurdly gets special recognition for dying in an attempt to steal a swan's egg.

The Movie

comment
The Movie: Averted. More than half a dozen times! Most of the projects failed primarily due to Brian Jacques' general distaste of movie adaptions. The ones who didn't suffer from this actually made it into pre-phase before it was discovered they lacked the rights. Those who had rights and made it into pre-phase turned out to be mere practical jokes or misunderstandings. Currently, however, a DeviantArt group is working on a feature-length adaption of Mossflower, the second book of the series. Not to be confused with another so-called "movie" that was brought out (which was just a re-edited version of the animated series with the Filler episodes removed).

In The Sable Quean, Buckler is a step or two away from this trope. His enemy, Zwilt the Shade is spot on: he likes to challenge any strong warriors, effortlessly evade their assaults while scorning their efforts, and oft-times will kill them with their own weapons.

The Siege: The first book's main conflict revolves around Cluny's forces encamped in a siege of Redwall. Other books have this plotline but not as the main plot, like when General Ironbeak began his aerial siege of the abbey in Mattimeo.

In the Back: Possibly the most cowardly act from someone you'd expect to be Always Lawful Good occurs in Marlfox.

 Redwall / int_1e01d7cb

Undefeatable Little Village: Despite being home to peace-loving creautres, many of them who aren't destined warriors are likely to become Technical or Martial Pacifists, driving away enemies for the most part or killing them as an absolute last resort. Because of this, Redwall itself is rarely defeated by the villain, and when it is, it doesn't last for long. It's to the point that Swartt Sixclaw intentionally avoids a conflict with it because he doesn't want to be just another dead warlord that tried attacking it.

And in a less known case (Triss), the Pure Ferret King Sarengo was a major subversion of this, as he attacked and killed a full grown female adder solo. Granted, he was only searching for a way to reach and plunder Redwall, and he died from his wounds (though he wouldn't have if his son hadn't deserted him) but it's still a badass feat few others aside from Matthias could replicate. It's a pity that his genes didn't pass on to his descendants...

Crapsack World: Only and arguably in the later books. Eventually, the world consists of Redwall, Salamandastron...and in between, a wretched hive of Always Chaotic Evil vermin ready to kill or enslave anybeast who steps outside. However, there are many villages scattered about that give sanctuary, such as Noonvale, Camp Tussock, King Araltum's settlement, or pre-plague Loamhedge, then there is the Southsward Kingdom. There are probably dozens more deep within Mossflower that exist but never mentioned.

Whether a villain is considered a cannibal — eating other speaking animals might be a clue as to how monstrous they're supposed to be — the threat of Cluny gobbling up beasts is offered as frightening to most inhabitants of Mossflower, and not all villains do so. Gulo and his army are considered walking nightmare fuel because of their tendency to eat the bodies of everyone they kill.

Verbal Tic: Those bally hares, wot wot? In this case it's also a "question tag". Like most of their dialect it's based on some of the posher Stock British Phrases. Asmodeus has the habit of hissing his own name between sentences, and the bats repeat the last couple of words of every sentence, every sentence ... Also, moles will say "ho urr", "burr aye", or something similar every few sentences. Many birds make random screeches and squawks before and/or after sentences. Rockjaw Grang tends to say "sithee" a lot. When doesn't Lousewort start a sentence with "er"? Tutty Pollspike has a habit of starting her sentences by shouting out "X 'n' X!"

Shoot the Shaggy Dog: Bryony's journey to find Veil Sixclaw ends with him dying right in front of her. Despite the fact he died for the sake of saving her, Bryony and all the other Redwallers just shrug it off, saying he was always evil to begin with. The readers, however, would disagree. Martin and Rose's romance subplot in Martin the Warrior. Almost everyone knew it wouldn't end well (since the story, chronologically, takes place before Mossflower), but it was still a huge Gut Punch when Rose was killed at the end of the book, thus making the subplot almost pointless and heartbreaking.

Furry Confusion
 Redwall / int_27a40541
comment
Furry Confusion: Mostly avoided, though there are still a few oddities. Lizards and frogs are either savage but sapient carnivores or cute pets with about the intelligence level of real-world monkeys. Eels appear to be monsters in Taggerung, but in Mossflower a deal is made with a talking eel to free him in exchange for their lives. And the fish. In the third book, Basil Stag Hare jokes that the magicians be allowed in Redwall "as long as they don't pull rabbits out of hats", which makes one wonder how that trick would work when the rabbits are the size of the performers. In Sable Quean, the heroes take care to avoid ground-nesting birds that could give their position away, again implying they're human-sized (or that hummingbirds nest on the ground). In Rogue Crew, the fox marauders' war cry is "YIPYIPYIPYIP!!!" which is (of course) the sound foxes make in our reality.

Some of the more gruesome deaths (mostly of villains) include: being boiled to death by scalding water, having their spine snapped and still living for hours after, being asphyxiated after paralysis, getting shredded to pieces by pike fish, getting force-drowned, being eaten alive by giants snakes, being eaten alive by cannibals, being eaten alive by spider crabs, being thrown onto a row of sharpened javelins, being flayed alive, getting a smashed-in skull, being cloven in two with a sword or axe, being stung to death by thousands of bees, and the usual beheading, impaling, and poisoning. Several good guys die this way as well.

Even the Redwall Wiki thoroughly explains why both of them may be the same character.

Lampshaded in the very first book: Cluny The Scourge ponders the fact that his underlings generally are dumb as bricks and decides that their inability to think for themselves (and resulting obedience) outweighs their incompetence.

Plot Armor: As the series goes on, it gets stronger and stronger, and covers more and more of the heroes. Earlier in the series Anyone Can Die. Taken to extremes in Taggerung. With the exception of Rillflag and Cregga Rose Eyes, the only good guys who die in the novel are nameless Red Shirts or characters who were forgotten shortly after their death.

Performer Guise: In Mattimeo, the evil Slagar the Cruel and his band of slavers want to infiltrate Redwall Abbey to kidnap the children. They achieve this by disguising themselves as a circus troupe, and while his goons perform, distracting the Abbeydwellers, Slagar goes around placing a drug in their drinks to make them fall asleep so his slavers can grab the children.

The Scrappy
 Redwall / int_2b7ec38e
comment
This actually nearly got a character killed in Triss. After the hare in question (who had already been in trouble twice for eating food that belonged to other people) eats a trifle that the Dibbuns were supposed to get as a prize for winning a contest, the abbot makes him clean the abbey from top to bottom, with only lettuce and water for food. The hare then loads up a haversack full to bursting with food, and leaves. He then gets caught by the villains and has to be rescued, to no one's delight.

Blazing Inferno Hellfire Sauce: Hotroot pepper. There is no Real Life British plant known as hotroot, but it seems most likely that the Mossflower variety is a type of particularly strong horseradish. Watercress (a peppery river plant) or Samphire (also peppery and grows on rocks on the sea shore). Both would be the sort of things otters (River or Sea respectively) could find. Admittedly neither are quite as hot as described.

Lantur tried to persuade her mother Silth that the wine Lantur was offering her was harmless by claiming that Lantur was going to drink some herself. Silth was too paranoid to fall for that, and a round of I Know You Know I Know and Poisoned Chalice Switcheroo followed. However later Lantur succeeds by drinking from one of the cups and pretending to die, at which Silth drinks from the other one... which is where the poison really was.

Gulo starts out as being creepy, scary, and menacing, but after he survives falling down the waterfall, he becomes Ax-Crazy, starts Laughing Mad, rambles about his dead brother and talks to himself—and inanimate objects, making him even scarier and creepier.

Misplaced Retribution: Slagar the Cruel blames the Redwallers for the death of his mother and his facial disfigurement, and in revenge he steals their children to sell as slaves. However, all the bad things that happened to him were a result of he and/or his mother's villainous ways, and none of the inhabitants of the Abbey were responsible for any of it. In fact, they tried to help him when he dragged himself to Redwall after being badly injured by Cluny the Scourge's horde and left for dead alongside his mother. His repayment for their kindness was to steal from them and murder the elderly Methuselah.

Flaying Alive: This seems to be a favored method of execution/torture/punishment of Ferahgo the Assassin. He even keeps some of his victim's pelts for clothing. In High Rhulain, Riggu Felis orders one of his top mooks to do this to one of his son's spies. We never find out if he went through with it, but one of Riggu's soldiers mentioned the spy was chopped to pieces. Which isn't much better.

Even Evil Has Standards
 Redwall / int_319e4a2f
comment
Even Evil Has Standards: It is said in Mariel of Redwall that out of all villains, sea rats are the only ones verminous enough to use fire as a weapon. The rats are bigger assholes than even Jacques suspected. Fire is the most dreaded occurrence aboard ship, because it is extremely difficult to stop. Flooding can be contained relatively easily if you're quick about it, and abovewater impacts typically won't put the ship at risk. Fire, however, cannot be contained, and with the tools available at that tech level, cannot be fought. If you start a fire aboard ship you're going to be fishfood shortly. The sea rats more than anyone else should fear fire as a weapon. Sawney Rath refuses to kill a mother nursing a babe. Whether a villain is considered a cannibal — eating other speaking animals might be a clue as to how monstrous they're supposed to be — the threat of Cluny gobbling up beasts is offered as frightening to most inhabitants of Mossflower, and not all villains do so. Gulo and his army are considered walking nightmare fuel because of their tendency to eat the bodies of everyone they kill. Vizka Longtooth's pirate crew deserted him after he murdered two of his own crew members in cold blood and for no reason whatsoever. During the performer's play in Martin the Warrior, when Ballaw asks the vermin spectators if he should "kill" a pretty squirrelmaiden with a (trick) knife, none of them speak up, except for Badrang. Most of Razzid's crew is disgusted when he uses a (still-living) member of the crew as fishbait, and flat-out refuse to eat any of the captured fish.

Legend Fades to Myth
 Redwall / int_31d6fd00
comment
Legend Fades to Myth: An interesting example that may or may not be intentional, or simply part of the greater retcon that followed the series, occurs concerning the foundation of the Abbey and the arrival of Martin the Warrior told in the beginning of the first book (subject to Early Installment Weirdness). This differs in quite a few details from the presumably true account of the events in the prequel Mossflower, although it does manage to at least get the cast of characters correct. The story told to Matthias implies that the Abbey already existed when Martin showed up, it was under siege at the time by their enemies' armies led by a wildcat, and Martin came in the nick of time to rescue them. In fact, the abbey was built on the site of the battle after everything was said and done, the reverse was closer to the truth, and Martin was involved in the battle from the start once he arrived from parts unknown to them.

Kick the Son of a Bitch: It's really hard to hate Magger after he kills that Jerkass watervole in Eulalia! Even though he wound up stealing Martin's sword afterwards. When the Juskazann clan raids Nimbalo's old home, Dagrab slays Nimbalo's father, presumably because she felt like it. Considering how hateful and abusive he was, no one except Nimbalo missed him. Baliss devouring Jeg in Doomwyte, mostly because he just wanted food. That's one less annoying Overlord Jr. Mossflower needs to worry about. Veil killing Brool and Renn. Considering they were both bandits who probably spent most of their lives robbing food from woodlanders before killing them, Veil did Mossflower a favor getting rid of them.

Murder by Mistake
 Redwall / int_3577923b
comment
Murder by Mistake: It happens a lot: Redwall has Cheesethief, whom Constance thought was Cluny. In Mossflower, Tsarmina fires an arrow at her brother as he, Ferdy, Coggs and Mask escape from Kotir. Mask ran behind them and coincidentally ended up shielding Gingivere and Coggs from the arrow. Happens twice in Salamandastron, with both cases regarding Ferahgo. First, Lord Urthstripe fires an arrow at him, only for Goffa to step in front of him and coincidentally get hit. Later, Forgrin and Raptail kill Sickear because they thought he was a wounded Ferahgo lying on a rock. And then Ferahgo shows up behind both of them... Martin the Warrior also has two cases. First, Badrang conspires with Gurrad to poison Cap'n Clogg, whilst Clogg simultaneously conspires with Oilbeak to have Badrang knifed. So naturally, Oilbeak accidentally chucks his knife at Gurrad's throat, and then proceeds to steal the tainted drink from Gurrad's body, which he later drinks from. Later, Badrang's archers fire arrows at a small group of animals they thought were Fur and Freedom Fighters. They turn out to be Hisk and his four trackers. During Swartt Sixclaw's failed attempt at taking over Redwall in Outcast of Redwall, a rat captain named Scraw gets shot full of arrows after Swartt's archers mistook him for woodlanders hiding in the bushes. In Loamhedge, Lonna picks up Raga Bol's body and uses it as a shield. The Searats chuck a few spears at Lonna, but hit Bol instead.

Not Drawn to Scale: There are frequent problems with this. In several stories a badger or hare climbs the same flight of stairs as a mouse, or using the same tools. Jacques has HandWaved this by saying that the characters are whatever size you think they are. This presented a bit of a challenge for the developers of the videogame, whose scale ended up being roughly that of the television series.

 Redwall / int_382a6399
comment
The Hero Dies: Usually averted. The heroes will most likely die of old age in-between books, and their death will only be briefly mentioned in the chronological sequel. Played tear-jerkingly straight with Urthstripe the Strong, and to a lesser extent Luke the Warrior.

Defector from Decadence
 Redwall / int_38f1a7ed
comment
Defector from Decadence: Grubbage. And to a lesser degree, Ashleg from Mossflower. After seeing how Tsarmina was beginning to lose her grip on sanity, he decided to get away from and "find new friends under a new sun that knew how to live simply, without dreams of grandeur". Blaggut from The Bellmaker ultimately decides to become a boat-builder after everything he went through at the Abbey. Upon escaping from Big Bad Raga Bol, Flinky and his band seem more than content to find a nice spot to settle down and forget all notions of Abbey conquest.

Sequel Escalation

Sequel Escalation: In the early books, the vermin armies keep getting bigger and the Big Bads' titles more impressive, up to "Emperor" Ublaz (whose domain was actually just an island). In both cases this process stopped when it couldn't go any further.

You Shall Not Pass!: Rockjaw Grang in The Long Patrol. Subverted in Mattimeo. Matthias attempts to do this, but his allies refuse to actually leave him behind. Bragoon and Saro in Loamhedge. Jukka the Sling and Fleetscut in Lord Brocktree, which is even more impressive, considering they spent most of the book viciously insulting each other, and nearly coming to blows more than once.

Something Completely Different
 Redwall / int_3b4773de
comment
Something Completely Different: Outcast of Redwall is not only more epic in scope than the rest of the series, but also much less clear-cut, averting the usual Black-and-White Morality in favor of more fleshed-out, and sympathetic "vermin", and Redwallers committing unprovoked acts of violence (including killing of innocents). The animated series also served as this since it aired in the US on PBS Kids— and unlike pretty much every other show on the block it was not an Edutainment Show in some fashion, nor did PBS have any say in the production (it was distributed to PBS affiliates by American Public Television). Presumably it was thought to be a good idea since hopefully it would encourage the audience to seek out the books.

Bad Boss

comment
Bad Boss: All vermin leaders. Badrang is noted by his own horde as being bad tempered. Exception: Captain Plugg Firetail of the Freebooters. Other exception: Cap'n Tramun Clogg. His former crew agrees that he was good to them; it's just that he erred too much, so switching to Badrang's side at that point was the only way for them to stay alive. Gulo the Savage. His response when one of his soldiers complains about his injuries? Kill the guy and eat him. Later, when his forces are reduced to eight vermin including himself, he still kills the one who thought about running. Conspiring against Swartt Sixclaw? He may just force you to feed a whole dead bird to another lackey, bones and all, when said lackey chokes to death you're then executed for murder. Razzid Wearet doesn't think twice about killing a minion and tossing him into the river, for no other reason than for the blood to attract big carnivorous fish which he then harpoons for his lunch.

Curb-Stomp Battle: Sometimes the battles are Pendulum War types. Nine times out of ten, however, the heroes will utterly stomp their way through the villains. The series is famed for this on the good guys' side to the point where there are cross-fandom jokes about the ability of woodlanders to curbstomp: "How do you know when you are fighting Wood Elves? You walk under some trees, a voice 30 feet above you shouts 'fire!', and you die. How do you know when you are fighting Mossflower squirrels? You walk under some trees, die, and then a voice 30 feet above you shouts 'fire!'"

Strictly Formula: There are basically four Redwall plots: the siege, the kidnapping, the land quest, and the sea/river quest. And then there's the "solve the puzzle/rhyme/prophecy." All with lots and lots of Food Porn. Subverted in the last book; only one relatively minor prophecy, no great siege and no sea quest.

Ruggan Bor doesn't get this passed to him so much as shoved forcefully into his hands. Throughout the story, he's never shown to be anything but a competent, calculating leader who weighs all his options and remains calm. He comes to Redwall seeking information, gets it, and is about to leave when circumstances lead him to believe he's inherited the title of Taggerung. All at once, he starts laughing maniacally and turns to attack the abbey. Then the resident badger lord and his hares swoop in out of nowhere to stop him.

Ungrateful Bastard: A lot of major villains, thanks to running on It's All About Me, exhibit utter lack of gratitude or obligation to those who just helped them.

Broken Aesop
 Redwall / int_401d4116
comment
Broken Aesop: Dear god, the ending of Outcast. Bryony spends the entire book insisting that Veil is not pure evil, and then when he gives his life to save her, she goes back to the Abbey and says that everyone was right, she was wrong, and the world is better off without Veil... and then they make her the Abbess? Part 3 of Loamhedge is just as bad. It gives us two broken aesops. The first is that being a Handicapped Badass is useless since you can earn the gift of walking by growing a pair of balls and overcoming your "lack of willpower". The second is that you shouldn't give a damn about two characters who venture across the country and try to cure you of your paralysis, even if their quest turns out to be pointless due to the first broken aesop and they end up sacrificing themselves for reasons that could've easily been prevented. It must be nice to be a woodlander in the later books. Basically, as long as they don't intentionally kill any of the "goodbeasts", (vermin are fine, as they would have eventually "tortured, bullied, and/or murdered" some "peace loving" creature somewhere) they can do absolutely anything they want. This includes lying, cheating, and stealing. The biggest example would probably be Yoofus Lightpaw in Rakkety Tam, who steals any number of important items, but is never given more than a slap on the wrist and a good natured head-shaking, and is beloved by all the characters. Didn't this series use to be about a religious order of mice who were renowned for offering aid to anyone, even predators?

Same Story, Different Names: Pearls of Lutra is a "Shaggy Dog" Story about a Big Bad who wants pearls and will torment the Redwallers in any way to get them. Doomwyte is a "Shaggy Dog" Story about a Big Bad who wants his jewels back and will torment the Redwallers in any way to get them. Many of the novels' plots are very similar. Redwall's in trouble. A hero carries Martin's legendary sword and kicks ass. Family-Unfriendly Violence occurs. Someone important (or not important, but very kind or innocent) dies. More Family-Unfriendly Violence. The Big Bad gets a daily dosage of Laser-Guided Karma and dies. Redwall is saved. The end.

Surrounded by Idiots: The Armies of most Big Bads consist of hundreds of complete morons who ignore obvious clues and frequently want to take command too. Lampshaded in the very first book: Cluny The Scourge ponders the fact that his underlings generally are dumb as bricks and decides that their inability to think for themselves (and resulting obedience) outweighs their incompetence. In the animated series, Badrang screams this from the wall of his fortress after another failure. His minions are indeed phenomenally stupid; the dumbest in the whole show.

Annoying Arrows
 Redwall / int_43f2f606
comment
Annoying Arrows: Both averted and played straight; Mooks will fall to arrows easily, but major characters can pull them out with their teeth and keep fighting so long as the plot requires it. Averted with the deaths of Warbeak and Skarlath, though the latter was killed with a poisoned arrow. Justified, though, because most of the woodlanders are stated to be excellent marksmen for various reasons, whereas average marauding rats and other bandits are not, and the original book stated that rats are very incompetent when it comes to the making and firing of arrows. Searats are shown to be better marksmen than the average vermin, though. Subverted in The Taggerung when Deyna takes an arrow to the chest from Vallug Bowbeast he keeps running, kills Vallug then chases after and kills Eefera but this is justified as Deyna was in excellent physical condition and was likely running on adrenaline the whole time. After his kills Eefera Deyna suffers Post-Victory Collapse and it's stated that the arrow in his chest will almost cripple him and is too deep to be removed except by the very skilled "otterfixer" Rukky Garge.

Jerk with a Heart of Gold
 Redwall / int_4781adbb
comment
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Pakatugg comes off as nothing more than a common Jerkass in Mariel of Redwall. Up until he sacrifices his life to ensure the rescue of a bunch of oarslaves he doesn't even know. Warbeak. The Guosim zig-zags this trope throughout the series. Sometimes they're rowdy, abrasive beasts who are only helping the heroes because they hate the vermin more. Other times they'll gladly lend a paw whenever Redwall or the main band of heroes are in danger. After the Flanderization kicked in, some of the hares became so snobby and selfish that it was more annoying than funny. But the heroes still tolerated them for their impressive combat skills and bravery in battle. Scarum, for example, just barely (and arguably) managed to keep himself from being a full-on Jerkass who only cared about himself.

Would Hurt a Child
 Redwall / int_479d4e5a
comment
Would Hurt a Child: Vilaya actually does. And she doesn't just hurt a child, she kills one. Slagar The Cruel. He has several children from Redwall kidnapped to be sold into slavery, at least one of whom was killed when they couldn't keep up, and he abuses them along with his own guards if they fail him. And one of his last acts before his death is the pointless murder of Vitch.

Characterization Marches On
 Redwall / int_479f9ad0
comment
Characterization Marches On: In Mariel of Redwall, it was explicitly stated that Rawnblade was the first badger lord to suffer the Bloodwrath since Boar the Fighter. As of Outcast of Redwall, the Bloodwrath abruptly became something that all badgers got every time they fought. At various points, it's stated that certain badgers (and sometimes other creatures) have a particularly strong version of the bloodwrath. Presumably, there are plenty of badgers out there who don't suffer from the bloodwrath (Lord Russano comes to mind) — we just don't hear about them because of Rule of Cool.

No Hugging, No Kissing
 Redwall / int_482c31d4
comment
No Hugging, No Kissing: The word "love" is rarely used, and even Rose and Martin hardly even hold paws onscreen, but their relationship is still very clear and a firm favourite with a lot of the fans, possibly because it's subtly handled. It is Justified in that the target audience seems to consist mostly of ten-year-old boys. There are also no references to any kind of sexuality: no female characters are shown pregnant. Antigra, however, was shown nursing Gruven at the start of The Taggerung. In The Legend Of Luke, a late summer song about fruit harvesting has a reference to sweetness being lost "like a faithless lover's kiss." It's one of the most overtly risque moments in the series, which says a lot. A few couples (Matthias and Cornflower, Gonff and Columbine, Tarquin and Rosie) officially marry and have kids. This only happens to characters who are featured in more than one book, so that kids just sort of appear in the sequel.

Always Chaotic Evil
 Redwall / int_4832a3bb
comment
In an early scene in the first book, claims that Cluny's horde is all evil is met with cries of "That's right, give a rat a bad name!" implying that there are rats living in Redwall. This is most certainly not the case in the future.note Except for Grubbage. The first book also implies generally that not only rats but other "vermin" are not Always Chaotic Evil, but the later books have the opposite being the case, aside from a few exceptions.

Distant Sequel

comment
Distant Sequel: Most novels are set a generation or so apart from one another, so that any given work tends to feature as main characters people who were either children in its immediate sequel or who are the offspring of the previous work's main characters. As there are twenty-two novels in the series, the end result is that the last few books in chronological order take place a good few centuries after the first ones, and extensive dynasties and family lines can be traced among the characters who are each other's children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Archnemesis Dad
 Redwall / int_4a0821b4
comment
Archnemesis Dad: This crops up a hell of a lot, usually with the young sons of vermin warlords. Firstly, Swartt Sixclaw, Veil's father. He completely neglects him, doesn't even name him, and abandons him in a ditch during a battle. That's not counting what Swartt does to him the next time they meet. There's also Ferahgo and Klitch in Salamandastron and Riggu Felis and Pitru in High Rhulain. The most prominent female example is Verdauga and Tsarmina, the first time in the series when this trope actually results in the child murdering their father. Also touches of it with Agarnu and Kurda in Triss, but it's nowhere near as significant. And then Gulo murdered his father Dramz prior to the events of Rakkety Tam before chasing his brother Askor to claim the throne of the northlands.

All Monks Know Kung-Fu: For a supposedly peaceful bunch, the Redwallers are pretty handy when it comes to war.

The first book Redwall had more religious/mystical references, including mentions of heaven and hell and a snake named Asmodeus, after a demon in the Catholic/Orthodox Bible. Again, these are toned down in establishing Redwall as its own universe. In the first book, it is also ambivalent whether Sela the fox actually had unique powers. Later in the series, any claims of supernatural powers are usually explicitly presented as a "Scooby-Doo" Hoax (Psychic Dreams for Everyone and seers remained, however).

Animal Religion
 Redwall / int_4c0b2072
comment
Animal Religion: Subverted. Despite the titular Redwall being an abbey, having an abbot/abbess and various characters referred to as Brother/Sister, there is no real religion to speak of (no one is referred to as a monk/nun, prayer is a generic grace at mealtimes). The only form of supernatural is the spirit of Martin the Warrior, who appears once a book to aid the protagonists, and Dark Forest, which some characters see when near death, and the ghosts of their ancestors. Even the first book, which featured a church of Saint Ninian, had no one to pray to (although the villain does have a nightmare of the Devil, who got referenced as well). There are often references to the afterlife though, such as "Dark Forest" (a neutral land of eternal slumber) and "Hellgates". Curiously, bad guys are referred to as going to either when they die. Sunflash even briefly witnesses the Dark Forest in Outcast of Redwall, though he is barred from entering until his quest is complete. In The Taggerung Vulpuz is mentioned, who's said to be the lord of Hellgates and the foxes' supposed creator (his name is close to Latin "vulpus" for "fox"). He seems to be a deity, though there's no sign of foxes or anyone having an organized religion based on him.

Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome
 Redwall / int_4cb7f0d8
comment
Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: Friar Hugo is killed off early on in Mattimeo. Later on, Log-a-Log also bites the dust. For many fans though, the saddest one in the book is the death of Warbeak, an incredibly fleshed-out character with strong development in Redwall. Nutwing from The Long Patrol ended up as a Sacrificial Lamb in Marlfox. Mother Mellus from Mariel of Redwall ends up killed in The Bellmaker, though her death brings about a Heel–Face Turn and among the best Moment of Awesome in the series. Lady Cregga Rose Eyes almost subverted this trope. She survived her first sequel, but then she took an arrow to the chest after coming back for a second.

Improvised Weapon: Occures many times in the series. In General, the average weaponry that the Redwallers use tends to concist of garden impliments, kitchen tools, and maybe homemade spears. In the first book, Cluny has Redtooth & Darkclaw dismantle the fence surrounding Saint Ninian's Church so that the horde can use the iron spires as spears. Mariel Gullwhacker's favorite weapon is a knotted rope she uses like a flail.

Also, some fanon suggests that—to solve issues with scale and such—most of the animals are human-sized or thereabouts and objects are scaled to in a similar manner, with badgers and such things being around ten feet tall (though this doesn't apply to the first book, due to Early Installment Weirdness.) Other theories scale up the smaller animals, like mice and moles, to place them on more equal footing with their larger neighbors while still maintaining things like owls and snakes as genuine threats.

Smug Snake: Hoo boy, do we got a list for you... Ublaz, again. He's possibly the most pathetic Big Bad the series ever had, spending almost the entire book under siege in his castle by his own rebellious pirate crews (constantly outfoxed by their leader Rasconza) before dying when he steps on his own pet snake. Vilu Daskar too. He always acted as though he was the most intelligent creature around (which was true for the most part), and that everything was under his control. Klitch, who tried too hard to be like his father and always smart-mouthed him whenever he could. Zigu. He's an excellent swordsbeast, a Deadpan Snarker, and (arguably) the smartest bad guy in Outcast. Yet when he gets into a swordsfight with Sabretache and realize he's losing, he starts using dirty tactics and turns out to be nothing more than a Dirty Coward. Mokkan is the most smug Marlfox out of his entire family, which is saying a lot. Gruven. He makes all the vermin listed above look as tough as Cluny. Even Ublaz had the balls to at least get into a short sword fight with Martin. Pitru is more or less a feline version of Klitch. Tugga Bruster. Despite being one of the burliest shrews in the series (and, y'know, being a shrew) he's just a cowardly and despicable as the vermin. He can't even insult someone right. Slagar the Cruel, albeit a high-functioning one, was one even as Chickenhound. Badrang is VERY proud of being the lord of a very small territory.

Body Horror: Slagar's deformed face is described very well. As is Riggu Felis's. And Ashleg wears a cloak over half of his body; the half that's twisted and maimed. There also exists three conjoined serpents. Technically they're not conjoined, but a vermin's flail wrapped itself around them when young so tightly they can't get loose, growing into it. Their presence is announced by the horrible smell of their exposed flesh.

 Redwall / int_504a5ec7

Greater-Scope Paragon: In some of the books, Martin the Warrior takes on this role after he has died, from either an invisible influence acting through the heroes to an occasional Spirit Advisor in dreams. However, his power from beyond the grave is limited. Though Martin's legendary sword is powerful in the hands of a hero, he himself warns that nothing stops any villain who obtains it from using it for evil. It is sometimes implied that the Badger Lord fortress Salamandastron has some kind of supernatural influence on it, as its forge's wall is full of carved images of both history and prophecy, which no one knows where they come from. On occasion it's been shown that badgers under the effects of Bloodwrath may carve the prophecies on the walls with their claws, but still no one knows where they get their visions.

The Farmer and the Viper: Chickenhound in the first novel who tried to loot Redwall because of his greed. Despite the Redwallers' adoption on Veil and attempts to nurture him to be good, he's still untrustworthy, nasty and malicious with him stealing from others and eventually trying to poison the Abbot, which ultimately leads to his banishment. Possibly subverted with his dying actions where he takes the blow meant for his caretaker, saving her life, though it's not clear whether it was intentional.

Reincarnation: Matthias is established to be a reincarnation of Martin, and it's possible that so are all the other Swordbearers. Cornflower might be Rose's reincarnation, but it's not spelled out. Matthias's case is rather unique within the trope, as Reincarnation more or less means that one's soul/spirit/ghost is recycled into a new person. Yet both Martin and Matthias's spirits existed simultaneously.

Some of the minor villains or Dragons have karmic deaths too. For instance, Brool and Renn are killed by Veil shortly after they tied him up and stole all his food and gear; the Wraith is accidentally knocked off Salamandastron by Porty; Klitch drinks the water Farran poisoned just when he thinks he's survived the gruesome battle at Salamandastron; Karangool was presumably whipped and killed by Bucko Bigbones, whom he had tortured in the past.

Nobody Poops: You'd think this trope would be averted all the time considering how much the Redwallers eat... Not to mention a scene from Eulalia! involving Gorath. He's forced to drink tons of rainwater since Vizka's crew was ordered not to feed him anything. Vizka also told his crew not to undo his chains for any reason or go anywhere near him since Gorath could easily kill one of them. You do the math.

People say that Tagg could just have been a very rebellious teen with a bad case of Values Dissonance. After all, what's the most horrifying thing one can do when one's authority figures are evil? And that the same book featured a not-so-nice woodlander in the form of Nimbalo's father.

Our Hydras Are Different: Invoked in Triss, where a trio of newly-hatched adders had their tails entwined by the flail of King Sarengo. As they grew into adulthood, the chain remained wrapped around them, so they had to learn to move as a team. They are horrifying in close combat, and for most of the book terrorize characters by their mere presence, the raw and rotting flesh of their tails giving off a sickeningly sweet odor.

Cheesethief... big time. He has absolute contempt for his fellow hordebeasts, especially non-rats, and only cares about his own advancement. His response when Cluny offers to promote Scragg the weasel ahead of him? He shoves Scragg out of a high tree, critically injuring him, then steps on his throat until he suffocates, taunting him the entire time. He sneeringly mocks Killconey for mourning Scragg's death, lying that it was his own "clumsiness." Then when he does get promoted, he works the troops under his command like a slave driver, and starts fantasizing about supplanting Cluny as horde leader. No one mourns when he gets a giant arrow in the chest.

Devil, but No God
 Redwall / int_59fe174d
comment
Devil, but No God: In the first book, the Devil is mentioned by name, along with references to Satan and "Old Harry" (an English nickname for the same), but not God. The omission is pretty odd considering that Redwall is an abbey, with monks and an abbot. They only say a generic grace at meals, with no mention of prayers. In the other books however it gets downplayed even more, with only the "Lord of Dark Forest" (the afterlife) also has been occasionally mentioned. However he also appears to be more a Grim Reaper figure than Satan. In The Taggerung Vulpuz, a being with similarity to the Devil, is also mentioned. There is also the fact that in the original "Redwall" book, the giant adder is named Asmodeus, which one in-universe character identifies as "the name of the devil himself". In real world mythology, Asmodeus is depicted as various kinds of demon king, depending on which version one reads, but is certainly a very high-ranking lord of Hell.

It is sometimes implied that the Badger Lord fortress Salamandastron has some kind of supernatural influence on it, as its forge's wall is full of carved images of both history and prophecy, which no one knows where they come from. On occasion it's been shown that badgers under the effects of Bloodwrath may carve the prophecies on the walls with their claws, but still no one knows where they get their visions.

Over the course of the book, the vermin discover that walking while up to their necks in seawater for several hours will wash out the dye, leaving only their heads blue (and marking yet another symbolic victory against Trunn, who by that point is holed up in Salamandastron without food and with an increasingly unruly and hungry army).

A shoal of hungry pike known as the Teeth of the Deeps lives in the lake where Marlfox Island is situated, making escape impossible and approach difficult. The Marlfoxes feed dissident beasts to the pike, so naturally karma (and the pikes) bites them when Lantur is pushed into the lake by her brother Mokkan, who is later knocked into the lake while trying to escape and ripped apart by the ravenous pikes.

Animal Stereotypes
 Redwall / int_61d054a0
comment
Animal Stereotypes: Each species in general has some level of common trait throughout the series. A few members of that species tend to break the norm. That said, other species are leagues different in the books than Real Life. Foxes are almost always seen as cunning at best, and treacherous at worst. No matter who they help, they always look out for themselves. Hell, the Marlfox family take this Up to Eleven, having no problem killing each other if it means reaping the glory for themselves. Weirdly, it's averted with the owls; they're almost invariably goodnatured but absent-minded, and almost never "wise", as folklore would have it. Possibly Truth In Literature, as owls aren't terribly smart in real life. Also, the bats are fairly cute and harmless with a silly Verbal Tic (verbal tic, verbal tic...), as opposed to the usual portrayals of them as evil in fiction. Though Boldred, Udara Groundslay and Captain Snow plays it rather straight, as Boldred is very wise, while Captain Snow and Udara are both are sharp minded and ruthless hunters. Also unusual, rabbits are not at all flirtatious, mischievous, or clever. The hares take that role, and the rabbits are universally prissy little weaklings who never factor heavily into the plot.

In Mossflower, Tsarmina fires an arrow at her brother as he, Ferdy, Coggs and Mask escape from Kotir. Mask ran behind them and coincidentally ended up shielding Gingivere and Coggs from the arrow.

Family-Unfriendly Violence
 Redwall / int_647ce68
comment
Many of the novels' plots are very similar. Redwall's in trouble. A hero carries Martin's legendary sword and kicks ass. Family-Unfriendly Violence occurs. Someone important (or not important, but very kind or innocent) dies. More Family-Unfriendly Violence. The Big Bad gets a daily dosage of Laser-Guided Karma and dies. Redwall is saved. The end.

Spirit Advisor
 Redwall / int_6492f4ca
comment
In some of the books, Martin the Warrior takes on this role after he has died, from either an invisible influence acting through the heroes to an occasional Spirit Advisor in dreams. However, his power from beyond the grave is limited. Though Martin's legendary sword is powerful in the hands of a hero, he himself warns that nothing stops any villain who obtains it from using it for evil.

"Leaving the Nest" Song: 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.

Planet of Hats: Or rather, species of hats. For example, hares have two staple personalities: "old veteran" and "cocky youngster" (which might or might not intersect with "annoying moron"). Besides them, there are Flat Character soldiers. Shrews are tough river wanderers. Foxes are slightly more intelligent and tend to be seers more than most vermin, and some play up their supposed mystical abilities.

The Pigpen: The natural state of vermin. Flinky actually sings a song about how bathing is dangerous. Truth in Television, as ferrets, weasels, and stoats, along with foxes, do produce a stronger odor than, say, mice or squirrels. It's completely natural and expected of them. So it stands to reason that vermin consider frequent baths and flowery soaps to be unnatural and unattractive.

And in that same battle, when they were in the Belltower, and Matthias had run up the stairs, Cluny found Friar Hugo, who had been ringing the Joseph Bell earlier, and took him hostage. Matthias swore on his honor as a warrior that he'd come down if Cluny let Friar Hugo go. He never said he wouldn't do something like cut the rope holding the Joseph Bell, making it fall on Cluny before coming down.

Rodents of Unusual Size: Damug Warfang is a "Greatrat", twice the size of a normal rat. Cluny the Scourge is described as "the largest rat the Redwallers had seen." Also, some fanon suggests that—to solve issues with scale and such—most of the animals are human-sized or thereabouts and objects are scaled to in a similar manner, with badgers and such things being around ten feet tall (though this doesn't apply to the first book, due to Early Installment Weirdness.) Other theories scale up the smaller animals, like mice and moles, to place them on more equal footing with their larger neighbors while still maintaining things like owls and snakes as genuine threats.

Idiot Ball: Passed around occasionally in Triss, particularly when Malbun and Crikulus leave Redwall in the middle of the night, alone, with no weapons or means to defend themselves from danger. Ruggan Bor doesn't get this passed to him so much as shoved forcefully into his hands. Throughout the story, he's never shown to be anything but a competent, calculating leader who weighs all his options and remains calm. He comes to Redwall seeking information, gets it, and is about to leave when circumstances lead him to believe he's inherited the title of Taggerung. All at once, he starts laughing maniacally and turns to attack the abbey. Then the resident badger lord and his hares swoop in out of nowhere to stop him.

Cheaters Never Prosper
 Redwall / int_72d30083
comment
Cheaters Never Prosper: Played straight in the case of Vermin being the cheaters, as the goodbeasts normally win the upper hand again, with horrible results for their foebeasts. But it is played straight in the case of goodbeasts being the cheaters like in the case of Dotti vs. Bucko Bigbones; She did not win the first contest, Bragging (spoiler-notouchingorfightingallowed-disqualificationmayfollow), by bragging best. She rather was concentrating on provoking her easily angered counterpart, and neutralising his brags by joking about them. She went so far (which was of course calculated on Dotti's behalf), that Bucko went after her and struck her. Guess what... disqualification followed. Likewise, she wins the second contest — an eating contest — by nibbling away until Bucko succumbed to the sun, the wine, and the copious amount of food he'd eaten and passed out. She even admits that she feels bad about this.

I Don't Like the Sound of That Place: In Mariel of Redwall, Gabool's headquarters is on Terramort. Combined with a Bilingual Bonus (or even a tri-lingual one), "terra" is Latin for land and "mort" is French (or a derivative of the Latin) for death. So, essentially, the Land of Death or simply Deathland.

Whip It Good: Cluny uses his own tail as a whip in Redwall and attaches a poisoned barb to the tip so he can use it as a lethal weapon. Not to mention the numerous slavedrivers who wield whips, notably Bullflay, whose name even seems to reflect his weapon of choice.

Black-and-White Morality
 Redwall / int_7abd339f
comment
Black-and-White Morality: As a whole, the series tends to strictly follow this morality mindset, with the woodlanders, Abbey dwellers, and the soldiers of Salamandastron being the good guys, and the myriad vermin that they face being the bad guys. Only on rare occasions are woodlander species (mice, otters, squirrels, hedgehogs, moles, badgers, and hares) shown committing questionable or evil actions, while the vermin species (rats, ferrets, stoats, weasels, and foxes) are almost universally vile, with very few, if any, redeemable qualities between them.

Villain Decay
 Redwall / int_7bb844ec
comment
Villain Decay: Korvus Skurr. At the start of Doomwyte, he actually comes across as a competent and frightening Big Bad. But as the novel progresses, he slowly starts to lose control over his own army (due to his reckless decision to hire a blind adder as an instrument for fear against the Redwallers), and eventually he devolves into a Smug Snake. Vizka Longtooth. His decay started shortly after his brother Codj was killed by Gorath. As time passed, he slowly began to lose control over his crew, all his plans to conquer Redwall failed thanks to the Brownrats, and many of the Sea Raiders were getting killed left and right. By the end of Eulalia!, Vizka's crew is down to only four, and they all desert him after Vizka killed two of his Raiders simply because they annoyed him. Gruntan Kurdly as well. He already started out as a lazy leader of a group of rats who were only there to make Maudie's subplot more exciting. By the time Part 3 of Eulalia! came, Gruntan did nothing but obsess over hard-boiled eggs, and he turned into the laziest antagonist in the entire book, if not the whole series. And if that's not bad enough, he dies trying to acquire a swan egg.

Not to mention a scene from Eulalia! involving Gorath. He's forced to drink tons of rainwater since Vizka's crew was ordered not to feed him anything. Vizka also told his crew not to undo his chains for any reason or go anywhere near him since Gorath could easily kill one of them. You do the math.

Part 2, however, is a Whole Episode Flashback that reveals the Big Bad and fully explains Luke's tragic fate when the two characters clash.

Dingeye and Thura successfully annoy the Abbess into letting them in via overblown crying fits. Oakheart Wytherspike, a hedgehog actor, and his family. Ballaw as well as Florian as both tend to act overdramatic in their shows, Florian especially, as he tends to stay in-character even when not doing a show.

Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Damug Warfang drowns some traitors in The Long Patrol. Badrang in Martin the Warrior does this. Subverted by Tsarmina in Mossflower, who states that not invoking this trope is the only reward for defecting to her side. A spy in The Bellmaker is warned about this by Urgan Nagru, the Big Bad, after he offers information on Nagru's mate (they're constantly plotting against each other) after the rat suggests a reward would be in order. He's then happy to escape with his life. As far as goodbeast species traitors, Skan the shrew in Mattimeo was put in Slagar's slave line as reward for his treachery, and soon after killed by the Painted Ones.

Ambiguously Christian: The Mossflower woodland creatures live as a religious-type order (an abbey with an abbot/abbess, various characters referred to as brother/sister, a church named after a saint etc). However, a supreme being is never even mentioned, let alone any sort of denomination, and though there is an afterlife mentioned, little detail has been given on it. The first book actually mentions Satan and Hell (however, none did after this).

Crystal Dragon Jesus: The Redwallers have Martin the Warrior, a figure in Redwall's history. In the books, he is depicted as a saint (appearing in visions or dreams which provide guidance, etc.) while the TV series flip-flops between depicting him as either a saint (he appears in visions as with the books) or as close to a god as he could be (the characters ask Martin for help, in and in the Season 3 premiere the Redwallers sing a song thanking him for the season's harvest). Redwall itself is a Catholic-like abbey with monks and nuns, and aside from this however there's no explicit religion, with only a vague "Dark Forest" as the afterlife. The Devil is mentioned in the first book, but religious references are made progressively less frequent. Vulpuz is mentioned in The Taggerung, who seems to be a Satan-like being (it was said he rules Hellgates and created the foxes) though it only comes up once.

What Happened to the Mouse?
 Redwall / int_863fa679
comment
What Happened to the Mouse?: What happened to Sneezewort and Lousewort? After they ditch the Rapscallions, they're only mentioned one more time in The Long Patrol. After that it seemed like even the author forgot about them. What happened to Tazzin and Scummy? Were they killed by Triss, Sagax, and their army of Redwallers, or did they escape to safety? They never did mention what happened to Weilmark Scaut... Lord Brocktree suffers a case of this when one of the enemy commanders decides to pull a Screw This, I'm Outta Here! and deserts with around 300 of his troops in tow. Said contingent of fully armed, trained vermin marches away and right out of the plot, never to appear again. The kingdom that Rakkety Tam served was said to be menaced constantly by vermin. However, when Tamm — who was arguably the only thing keeping them away — leaves, nobody ever mentions it again. What about the twelve guards that were guarding the Vole family in Cluny's camp? After Matthias rescued the voles, the guards as punishment were imprisoned without food and water until further notice. Never mentioned again... either when Cluny recovered he personally executed them, which was implied he would have done in the first place, they were pardoned, or they starved to death. What on earth happened to Binta the fox who had ran off after Fibbler killed her mate Thwip? Is she alive or dead? Did she die offscreen from the injures Fibbler gave her? Is she in hiding grieving over Thwip? Is she trying to tend her wounds? Did some other beast kill her offscreen? She just runs off and is never mentioned again!

Weirdly, it's averted with the owls; they're almost invariably goodnatured but absent-minded, and almost never "wise", as folklore would have it. Possibly Truth In Literature, as owls aren't terribly smart in real life. Also, the bats are fairly cute and harmless with a silly Verbal Tic (verbal tic, verbal tic...), as opposed to the usual portrayals of them as evil in fiction. Though Boldred, Udara Groundslay and Captain Snow plays it rather straight, as Boldred is very wise, while Captain Snow and Udara are both are sharp minded and ruthless hunters.

Protagonist-Centered Morality
 Redwall / int_89434320
comment
Protagonist-Centered Morality: Very much so in some of the later books. While the heroes don't exactly do anything as despicable as the villains, some of them commit acts that would brand them as Anti-Heroes when compared to earlier Redwall books, yet no one calls them out on it. At one point in High Rhulain, Tiria, who killed a rat by complete accident, gets yelled at by her father for not slaying all the other water rats she found, and the book makes it seem as though killing vermin just because they're vermin is perfectly acceptable. Apparent in Loamhedge. Bragoon and Sarobando walk up to a band of vermin, insult them, steal the fish they're cooking, and create a scuffle that inadvertently gets one of them killed. Note that they didn't do this because they were on the cusp of starving to death, and the band hadn't yet been seen to do anything more villainous than sit around cooking fish.

There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Do NOT fuck with badgers, especially Lonna Bowstripe. He uses Raga Bol's body as a shield, and he's promptly impaled by a few spears. Afterwards, Lonna uses Raga's carcass as a flail to kill the other Searats. And then he chucks his grotesque body at a tree.

Self-Poisoning Gambit
 Redwall / int_8ba6dee3
comment
Self-Poisoning Gambit: Both Lantur from Marlfox and Swartt Sixclaw from Outcasts of Redwall managed to trick opponents into drinking poison through using this. Lantur tried to persuade her mother Silth that the wine Lantur was offering her was harmless by claiming that Lantur was going to drink some herself. Silth was too paranoid to fall for that, and a round of I Know You Know I Know and Poisoned Chalice Switcheroo followed. However later Lantur succeeds by drinking from one of the cups and pretending to die, at which Silth drinks from the other one... which is where the poison really was. Swartt Sixclaw offers some wine and an ornate cup to a rival warlord. The other warlord has his Giant Mook drink some of the wine first with Swartt, which they both enjoy. The warlord then pours some wine into the cup, drinks, and dies the next day. Turns out it was the cup that was poisoned, not the wine. Swartt is even able to "prove" his innocence by drinking the rest of the wine to show it wasn't poisoned.

The Guosim zig-zags this trope throughout the series. Sometimes they're rowdy, abrasive beasts who are only helping the heroes because they hate the vermin more. Other times they'll gladly lend a paw whenever Redwall or the main band of heroes are in danger.

No One Could Survive That!: Stated outright by Log-a-Log when Gulo the Savage went over the waterfall in Rakkety Tam. In the first book, Cluny the Scourge took a tumble from the very top of the Abbey wall, suffering cracked ribs, a smashed claw and countless other brutal injuries; Abbot Mortimer started to invoke this, but Constance told him Cluny would be back.

The Voiceless
 Redwall / int_8ec0abf
comment
The Voiceless: Silent Sam is a squirrel who is too young to speak, instead depicted sucking his thumb. He is said to talk a lot near the end of Redwall, losing his "Silent" nickname and this trope. Farran from Salamandastron is a creepy, silent poisoner that never speaks. Muta from The Bellmaker is a badger that is unable to speak; the most she can do is make some bark-like noises when happy or distressed. In the same book, Rab Streambattle becomes this for a while once badly injured and healed by Egbert the Scholar; Egbert acknowledges that Rab's mind is not healed, and it takes reuniting with his wife for Rab to snap out of it and become able to speak again.

Medieval Stasis
 Redwall / int_8f37b
comment
Medieval Stasis: The time period never changes, and the weapons never improve, despite at least 28 generations of abbots of Redwall having come and gone. Not even rudimentary gunpowder weapons (which were used in the late Middle Ages) are seen. However, they don't have countries, so no prolonged wars with traditional land-based enemies which would inspire an arms race. The only established permanent residence with warlike tendencies is Salamandastron, and they're not exactly filled to the brim with inventive types, just straight-up soldiers.

Overly Long Name: Jodd's full name is the single longest one in the series. According to him, You Do NOT Want To Know what it is, and when it's revealed it spans roughly two and a half lines of text before he gets cut off. Captain Tramun Josiah Cuttlefish Clogg also counts. As does Laird Bosie Mc Scutta of Bowlaynee (Doomwyte) and now, Subaltern Meliton Gubthorpe Digglethwaite (The Sable Quean). Bellscut Oglecrop Obrathon Ragglewaithe Audube Baggscut (Boorab the fool) Hares in general, really. It's rather rare to find a hare who gets spotlight and has less than three parts to their name.

Kissing Cousins: Arguably. In Doomwyte where two descendants of Gonff get married, but since by this point a couple of thousand seasons have passed since the shared ancestor was alive it probably doesn't count anymore. In the animated series, mainly due to Lost in Translation. Cornflower's father was John Churchmouse (not Mr. Fieldmouse as in the books), though Tess was still canonly John's daughter. Take a wild guess who marries his Aunt.

Karmic Death
 Redwall / int_90d44f44
comment
Karmic Death: Many of the main villains had very karmic deaths. Examples: Cluny was crushed by the bell that had earlier awakened him from his nightmares; hydrophobic Tsarmina drowned when she nearly killed Martin the Warrior; Fortunata was killed by Lady Amber and her archers for helping the aforementioned Tsarmina take over and oppress the woodlanders before going to spy on them, Malkariss was stoned to death by the very creatures he had enslaved; Gabool was stung to death by his pet scorpion, whom he had used to execute foes previously; Ublaz was bitten by his pet snake; Princess Kurda fell and stabbed herself on her own broken sword; Riggu Felis was killed by the same barbed star that he earlier used to trap Pandion; Vilaya fell on her own poisoned dagger, which she had used to kill numerous characters. Some of the minor villains or Dragons have karmic deaths too. For instance, Brool and Renn are killed by Veil shortly after they tied him up and stole all his food and gear; the Wraith is accidentally knocked off Salamandastron by Porty; Klitch drinks the water Farran poisoned just when he thinks he's survived the gruesome battle at Salamandastron; Karangool was presumably whipped and killed by Bucko Bigbones, whom he had tortured in the past. Tugga Bruster is stabbed in the chest by Tala as revenge for killing her husband Chigid. This is a rather interesting case. Unlike all the names listed above, Tugga Bruster wasn't evil or even a vermin. He was just an asshole who made even the Punch Clock Villains look good. Not even the Redwallers or his own son missed him.

National Weapon: Several of the species have trademark weapons, though not consistently through the books. Shrews use rapiers. Otters use slings and javelins. Squirrels are archers. Hares of Salamandastron use different types of spears — pikes in one book, lances in another. Rats of Malkariss use either short stabbing spears or bows.

Five-Man Band: There have been a few of these in the series, but the group from Marlfox seems to fit the tropes best. The Hero: Dannflor. The Lancer: Dippler. The Smart Guy: Burble.

The Dragon: Redtooth, later killed and replaced by Cheesethief...who is then also killed and replaced by the trio of Darkclaw, Killconey and Fangburn. Evil Genius: Killconey. Mostly for his work on the tunnel. The Brute: Fangburn. The Dark Chick / Sixth Ranger Traitor: Sela.

Inspirational Insult: In The Bellmaker, several of the heroes are trapped in a tower, with their only hope of rescue a rope brought to them by a shrike (aka butcher bird). Unfortunately, the rope is too heavy for the bird, so the hare starts insulting, a previously noted Berserk Button. The shrike makes it to the tower, fully intent on proving its name, but is convinced to leave instead.

Villainous Breakdown
 Redwall / int_957e5fc2
comment
Villainous Breakdown: Several examples. Gabool the Wild in Mariel of Redwall does it most obviously and impressively. He goes from being evil but reasonably lucid to a gibbering insomniac who can't tell his followers from his sworn enemies and starts to believe that a plundered bell understands what he's saying and rings itself to mock him. Slagar the Cruel in Mattimeo is already crazy at the start, blaming Matthias and the Redwallers for the horrible scarring on his face. By the end, he's pretty much raving, frantically reassuring himself that however events turn out, he will "win" somehow. He even plans to steal Matthias' sword, now convinced that it is magic and grants victory to whoever wields it. Gulo starts out as being creepy, scary, and menacing, but after he survives falling down the waterfall, he becomes Ax-Crazy, starts Laughing Mad, rambles about his dead brother and talks to himself—and inanimate objects, making him even scarier and creepier. Needless to say, his soldiers were scared out of their wits of him. Tsarmina in Mossflower also does this. Granted she's being driven insane by a constant dripping noise and the fact that everytime she tries to destroy the resistance fails. Cap'n Clogg's really the only character who had a justified reason for his breakdown. After all, he did suffer a head injury.(Though who KNOWS what happened when Gulo fell down the waterfall - he could have hit his head as well.) Justified with Baliss too, who was already blind and not-so-sane to begin with. After he gets a bunch of hedgehog spikes in his head, he spends the rest of the novel literally losing his mind and thrashing around killing anything in sight and trying to soothe his wounds.

Tuckerization: Two fans named Samantha Kim and Laura were featured - with slight modifications - as "Samkim" and "Arula" in Salamandastron. Oddly enough, the character Samkim is a boy. Gauchee in Martin the Warrior is named for Patricia Lee Gauch, an editor of the books and friend of Brian Jacques, to whom the book is also dedicated. Rab Streambattle in The Bellmaker was named for an enthusiastic Oregonian Redwall fan named Robert Adam Banagale. Loamhedge features two characters named after people that Jacques mentions in the dedication: Lonna Bowstripe is named after a person named Nolan Wallace, and Martha Braebuck is inspired by Brian Jacques' friend Martha Buckley. Tiria Wildlough from High Rhulain is based on a fan named Patricia who met Brian Jacques at a book signing in 2003 and gave him a letter requesting that he name an otter character after her. Sampetra Isle, was named after two fans "Sam and Petra". Axtel Sturnclaw, who appears in The Sable Quean, seems to have been named after US soldier Pfc. Donald Reas Axtell III, to whom Doomwyte is dedicated.

Korvus Skurr. At the start of Doomwyte, he actually comes across as a competent and frightening Big Bad. But as the novel progresses, he slowly starts to lose control over his own army (due to his reckless decision to hire a blind adder as an instrument for fear against the Redwallers), and eventually he devolves into a Smug Snake.

Sam Squirrel, who was alive when the Late Summer Rose Wars happened, actually knows the truth and tells Mattimeo that he took advantage of the Redwallers' kindness to steal everything valuable in the Abbey after they saved him from dying, then murdered Methuselah before he had an unfortunate run-in with Asmodeus.

In Triss, King Agarnu sends his daughter, Princess Kurda, alongside her brother, Prince Bladd, and a pirate by the name of Plugg Firetail. This forms a Big Bad Duumvirate that slowly begins to fall apart the moment they reach Mossflower. On top of that, there are also Zassaliss, Harsscacss, and Sesstra, three children of the fallen adder Berussca who are also in the running for the title of the book's main antagonist.

In the Blood: Played straight in the series, where certain species are always designated as "good" or "bad." Even when a ferret (one of the "vermin" species) named Veil is raised from infancy in the abbey, he ultimately turns out to be evil. "The goodies are good and the baddies are BAD, no grey areas." (Weirdly, cats are one of the few species that's an exception to this rule, being good or evil — in a series where mice are the standard heroes.) There are occasional exceptions, with good-aligned "vermin species" or evil-aligned "good species" but they are few and far between.

Revenge Before Reason
 Redwall / int_97d97c28
comment
Revenge Before Reason: This is arguably the entire theme of the book Martin the Warrior. The two main character, Martin and Felldoh, are both driven by a desire for revenge on Badrang and in both their cases it costs them everything. Both may have the reason being that they wish to stop an evil slaver and free the slaves but it's made clear, especially in Felldoh's case, that their main motivation is revenge. Even after all the slaves are freed, Felldoh insists on staying around Marshank to attack Badrang and swears a litteral oath of vengeance when Juniper is killed in a raid; when Felldoh has a duel with Badrang he could have easily just killed the tyrant but chose instead to beat him in retribution for all the years he'd spent as a slave, which gave time for Badrang to call up his reinforcements which ends with Felldoh killed. Martin's desire for revenge and reclaiming his father's sword does lead him to kill Badrang, but it gets many of his allies killed and causes Badrang to kill Rose which emotionally scars Martin so deeply that he leaves all of his friends and his potential life behind, presumably riddled with guilt.

Gambit Roulette: Subverted in Mattimeo. A plan which includes four thugs sneaking into the abbey, spiking everyone's drinks, make them drink them at the same time by calling out a toast and then kidnap all the young ones fails. However, the antagonists still succeeded in their Evil Plan, as they simply killed nearly everyone who was still awake. Ublaz and Rasconza's fight for power in Pearls of Lutra.

Better to Die than Be Killed: Happens in Marlfox with the rat Janglur captured, who threw himself into a river and drowned because he knew he'd break during Janglur and Log a Log's interrogation. It's implied he was less scared of suicide than what the Marlfoxes would do to him for betrayal.

Family-Unfriendly Death
 Redwall / int_9afa05c7
comment
Family-Unfriendly Death: Some characters die in fairly horrible ways. It can be disturbing to some. One of the most horrifying examples took place in The Legend of Luke. Two rats are bullying a seemingly defenseless otter, taunting about how they're going to drown him just because they can. Martin sees this, but Log-a-Log—knowing who this otter is—wisely tells him to keep Trimp and Chugger from seeing what happens next. And for good reason: once one of the rats got too close, the "defenseless" otter sinks his teeth directly into the vermin's throat. But that wasn't all bad... at least the otter had some company for dinner...

Repeated Rehearsal Failure: In the book Mossflower, Cludd orders Thicktail to tell Queen Tsarmina that there's been a suspicious robin hanging around (possibly spying on them), but not to tell Ashleg or Fortunata so that they'll not steal the credit. Thicktail has a hard time remembering as he returns to the castle, and ends up muttering, "I must tell the Queen that a robin has seen Cludd hanging about. No, that's not right. I must tell the robin that Cludd has been hanging the Queen..." He never ends up passing on his message to the queen, since he was so distracted by trying to remember it that he didn't pay attention to his surroundings, and he ended up being the eagle Argulor's next meal.

Greater-Scope Villain: Malkariss acts as this in Mattimeo, as Slagar The Cruel is in fact working for him throughout the novel. And then he turns out to be a misshapen wimp. King Agarnu in Triss. But just like Malkariss he does virtually nothing but sit on his ass all day. And like Malkariss, his death is quite pathetic.

Took a Level in Badass
 Redwall / int_9bcd82c0
comment
Took a Level in Badass: Matthias, occurring literally as he gets his hands on Martin's sword. All of a sudden, he has the strength, stamina, and fighting experience to go toe-to-toe with Cluny, a powerful and experienced rat warlord. Viola from Pearls of Lutra. She starts out being nothing more than a tattletale vole, and she's easily frightened by the monitor lizards after she's captured by Lask's forces. But after she's rescued, she willingly joins Martin and his crew to go find Abbot Durral (who was still held captive by the corsairs), and she was more than happy to bonk a few vermin heads with an oar when several pirates tried to retake the Freebooter. Dann too. He spends the first part of Marlfox being a "disappointment" to his father, and he even calls himself a coward when he and Song run away from Raventail (who had captured Dippler and Burble). He immediately decides to rescue his two friends, and when he encounters Raventail a second time, he beats the shit out of him. From that moment on his badassery just got better and better. Martha and Horty Braebuck from Loamhedge. They're quite possibly the only two non-warrior Redwallers to do this without touching Martin's sword. Spectacularly subverted in The Rogue Crew with Uggo Wiltud. At the end of the story, Uggo is granted the Sword of Martin, and you'd expect him to become an Instant Expert. Instead, he's just a nervous, scared hedgehog who can barely wield the sword. When he finally encounters Razzid Wearat and Badtooth, he kills Badtooth completely by mistake, his carcass falls on Uggo, and the sword is knocked away. If it hadn't been for Posy picking up the sword and impaling Razzid, the wearat would've killed Uggo. In The Sable Quean, Clarrina is just a simple haremother/widow, but she ends up killing Zwilt the Shade in revenge for her husband's murder with Martin's sword no less. Cynthia Bankvole through entire story of Mattimeo does nothing but whine and complain (which is understandable, suddenly being taken from your comfy home and family into a life of slavery), but in the animated series, during the final battle, she joins in trying to kick ass. Arven from The Pearls of Lutra was a cheeky, bratty and mischievous toddler. In The Long Patrol, at some point once he became an adult (Or maybe even earlier) he was badass enough to earn the title Warrior of Redwall.

Clean Food, Poisoned Fork: Swartt uses this trope so he can convince Bowflegg that the wine isn't poisoned by drinking some of it straight from the bottle (the poison is smeared on the goblet which they drink from). He tries it on three separate targets, though the third would-be victim catches on, forcing him to find a different method of disposal.

Stay in the Kitchen: High Rhulain both subverts this and plays it straight. Tiria is barred from becoming Skipper on account of her sex, and her choice to wield a sling draws derision from male characters — all of whom wind up eating their words. On the other hand, many of those same male characters also hand-hold her through her quest, treating her attempts to make her own decisions with condescending amusement. When she insists on accompanying her warriors to battle, Kolun outright compares her to his bossy wife. Odd, given that The Legend of Luke had a female otter as "Queen of NORT (the Northern Otter River Tribes)." Maybe Skipper is an inherently male title, with the ladies able to become Otter Queens?

Martin and Rose's romance subplot in Martin the Warrior.

General Failure
 Redwall / int_a01f88a7

General Failure: While many of the Redwall villains exhibit this from time to time, Gruven from Taggerung seems stuck in this mode. His mother, Antigra, believes that her son is the rightful Taggerung, even though Grissoul and the signs say different, and fills his head with that knowledge. When he finally does go on his journey to kill Tagg, he shows he can't differentiate between left and right, is all but ignored by his group and is outright bullied by self-appointed leaders Vallug Bowbeast and Eefera (who's been given secret orders to kill Gruven if he shows fear). When he and his two remaining allies attempt to kill Vallug and Eefera via ambush, he is reduced to a sobbing, weeping little bitch who manages to escape in a later battle, only to get recaptured by Ruggan Bor. But take heart, for Gruven does technically become the Taggerung... for about all of ten seconds. He does have the excuse of being a spoiled teenager.

Gender Is No Object: In the later books, at least. In the first few books there don't seem to be any female vermin whatsoever, but in the later ones gender seems to be assigned to them at random, and it doesn't really make a lot of difference to their characterisation. As for the good guys, the very first general of the Long Patrol was female, and while only one female has wielded the Sword, females make up a reasonable proportion of the most respected fighters.

Karma Houdini: Despite the fact that nearly every major villain in every book dies, there have been a few exceptions... Juska chieftain Ruggan Bor in Taggerung was humiliated and sent home with his tail between his legs by badger lord Russano the Wise. Possibly justified in that he hadn't actually harmed Redwall yet. In Loamhedge, Badredd and his cronies ran off into Mossflower after escaping from the clutches of Raga Bol. (But seeing as they were Affably Evil Punch Clock Villains, it is doubtful that any readers would want them dead.) Also, Agrill in Martin The Warrior. He drugs the protagonists for absolutely no reason other than disliking them, and it's made very clear that, had they not been in the company of Boldred, he would have murdered them. Not only is he not punished for this, no one even seems to care. Any vermin who successfully desert their army, such as Sneezewort, Lousewort, Ashleg, Ripfang, Grand Fragorl, and more, though in Ashleg's case he deserts the army because among other things Tsarmina made him walk ahead of her troops in the desert sun. However, Ripfang gets what's coming to him in Mossflower (assuming it's the same character). Triggut Frap, who's left dangling from a tree. Considering that he threatened to feed little Diggla to a bunch of pikes, he got off easy. Gruntan Kurdly's Brownrats who weren't under Stringle's command. Also, what was left of Vizka Longtooth's Sea Raiders.

Only Known by Their Nickname: Was a fan assumption about the vermin until Loamhedge, when it was made explicit. Evidently even vermin aren't sadistic enough to inflict names like "Stinky" on their offspring at birth.

Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: A minor example, but this seems to be the only explanation as to why when Woodlanders and Vermin get into the final epic battles, almost ALL the vermin die, while the woodlanders lose probably less than six characters at most, a few others injured.

Mouse World: Redwall (the novel) seemed to take place in one of these, what with bits like an entire army of rats hitching a ride on a horse-drawn cart and mentions of piglets, town dogs, and Portugal (Part of Cluny's introduction including speculation that he was a "Portuguese rat.") By the second novel, however, all aspects of humanity had been removed. There is a vague hint of humanity or a higher life form of some sort in High Rhulain, where Riggu Felis speaks of his ancestors (the Wildcats) liberating the Feral Cats from some unnamed group that had domesticated them.

Swartt Sixclaw offers some wine and an ornate cup to a rival warlord. The other warlord has his Giant Mook drink some of the wine first with Swartt, which they both enjoy. The warlord then pours some wine into the cup, drinks, and dies the next day. Turns out it was the cup that was poisoned, not the wine. Swartt is even able to "prove" his innocence by drinking the rest of the wine to show it wasn't poisoned.

Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Many characters, mostly hares who aren't on the Long Patrol — Basil Stag Hare, Tarquin L. Woodsorrel and most especially Cleckstarr Lepus Montisle aka. Clecky. Clecky's owl companion Gerul gets a special mention as well for being described by Clecky as "a young duffer" on introduction but turning out to be an absolutely ferocious fighter, with an impressive will to live. It's noted after his fight with the jackdaw tribe that it's a miracle he's still alive.

Sole Survivor: Tramun Clogg is the last one left alive in Marshank. He always wanted to rule it, but true to poetic justice, it's destroyed and he's utterly insane, talking to corpses and likely to soon die of exposure. Subverted in Salamandastron when Klitch survives the final battle and is in the middle of escaping, when he comes across some of the poisoned stores, thoughtlessly drinks some of it, and ends up dying anyway.

Deliberate Values Dissonance
 Redwall / int_aabe2fb
comment
Deliberate Values Dissonance: Even discounting all the species-related stuff, in Mossflower, small children can drink alcohol and get involved in battle, and thirteen-year-olds can marry. In real world Medieval England (similar to the world of the books) this would have been perfectly acceptable. Cider, beer and wine were drunk by young children, girls as young as 13 were often married to older men and army drummer boys or navy powder monkeys might be as young as 10. Although Word of God stated in a Q&A that Redwall drinks aren't alcoholic, he's been known to contradict himself on occasion. In any case, alcoholic drinks in the medieval era were far less intoxicating than currently, as fermentation at the time wasn't as sophisticated.

Stock Medieval Meal: Mostly averted. Though the simpler staple foods will be mentioned, especially eaten by travelers on the road, the author would usually go into mouth-watering elaborate detail about what's served at the feasts (which are frequent). It's to the point there's a cookbook with recipes of the dishes mentioned in the series.

Eaten Alive: Any victim of Asmodeus in Redwall. Which explains how Chickhound escaped his fate, though not unscathed, come Mattimeo. What usually happens to the victims of large snakes or large fish. Lantur and Mokkan from Marlfox stand out the most. Lampshaded in Doomwyte with Aluco, who admitted he had to "hunt" so he wouldn't starve while hiding from the Painted Ones. Whether or not he ate his prey while they were still alive isn't certain though.

Alas, Poor Villain: Ublaz. He spent the last moments of his life freaking out and having a Villainous Breakdown as he was forced to watch his glorious empire slowly fall apart in the course of about a day. It's hard not to at least pity the creature when he realizes that everything he's worked so hard to achieve is crashing down around him. Captain Plugg Firetail, the only interesting villain from Triss who wasn't a complete coward and didn't treat his crew like crap. All of them were openly upset about his death and even cried over it. Globby. He was just an adolescent Punch-Clock Villain who broke into Redwall simply because he wanted to taste the delicious food. And right before he dies, he uses his last breath to tell Abbess Marjoram who kidnapped the two lost Dibbuns and where they're at.

Myopic Architecture: The main gate of Redwall Abbey is large and thick, impervious to even the most dedicated of sieges. Basically, not one invading vermin horde has ever gotten through it. The tiny wicker side-gate, on the other hand, has been breached by countless invading hordes over the seasons, probably accounting for every successful invasion of the abbey. This is presumably intentional, since it would be easy to station three well-armed, armoured guards there during a siege to hack up any single file intruders who tried to get in. Unfortunately, being peaceful monk and villagers, the Redwall inhabitants never think of that.

Jesus Taboo: The characters live in an Abbey up the road from an abandoned Church and several of the characters are Abbots and other religious personages. And yet there's not a single mention of anything resembling God or Jesus or religious services. In Redwall (the original novel), the Abbey inhabitants were expressly stated to be an "order", with robes and prayers and celibacy and all that. Of course, due to Early Installment Weirdness, a lot of what happened in Redwall has been unofficially declared Canon Discontinuity.

Too Dumb to Live
 Redwall / int_b58b4e3c
comment
Too Dumb to Live: Ungatt Trunn, the Big Bad of Lord Brocktree. He has the single biggest army in the series, and he attempts to feed them by sending out only a few small foraging parties — with predictable results. Ovus and Bluddbeak, two very old birds—one of whom is borderline blind—try to kill a trio of adders. By themselves. Guess who dies? During her Villainous Breakdown, Lady Kaltag makes a fire inside her husband's fortress just to burn Leatho Shellhound out of the room he's hiding in. Although it's only briefly mentioned, her clothing catches on fire, and she ends up burning the whole fortress down (with her presumably still in it). Idiot. Gruntan Kurdly. Apparently he didn't realize that a swan's nest full of swan eggs might also have a swan in it] Scratch, Splitnose and Blacktooth takes this even further. They also find a swan's nest with an egg, they notice the swan. What do they do? Try to scare it off by throwing weapons at it. Scratch then goes right up to it in an attempt to stab it. Too bad its mate was also in the water.

Kindhearted Simpleton: Blaggut, who easily made friends with the Redwallers, was trying to help out everyone including his captain who was planning to loot whatever he could from the Abbey and seems fairly low intelligence overall (which his captain often mocks him about). He turns against him later though, and is one of the few good characters from "vermin" species.

Blood Knight
 Redwall / int_b7c53a22
comment
Blood Knight: Zwilt the Shade (The Sable Quean), the right-hand sable of Vilaya. He goes out of his way to find any warrior with a strong reputation and challenge them one on one; as others have noted, death always follows in Zwilt's wake. Gulo the Savage (Rakkety Tam) is this trope taken to its extreme; even when chasing his enemies with a badly-depleted horde, he will stop the chase and turn around to attack an entire grove of crows just for receiving a few scratches. Gelltor from Marlfox, when compared with his siblings. Raventail from the same book.

Moral Dissonance
 Redwall / int_b7f4aa9
comment
Moral Dissonance: Bragoon and Sarobando invoke this like it's going out of style. Their introduction sees them stealing food and drink from a band of vermin; later on, they beat and threaten a small desert "jerbilrat" who's stolen their supplies in a hostile environment, defending their actions on the ground that the name contains the word "rat". Later on still, the group stays with an old dormouse who repeatedly claims to have very little of his own, and Bragoon immediately decides to give him "all they can spare." In the end, when it's discovered that the dormouse actually has an entire cellar full of supplies, both Bragoon and Saro rush to point out that the environment is harsh, Toobledum is simply looking out for himself, but that the young ones are naive to be taken in by his ruse at all.

The World Is Always Doomed: Just how many times has the abbey been attacked now? Subverted in Taggerung, where the leader of the Juska tribe wants to avoid Redwall at all costs. Averted in some of the earlier books, with a literal aversion in Outcast of Redwall. Also, given that most books introduce a whole new cast of characters, it is likely that the Abbey gets attacked about once a generation, probably less.

Hard Truth Aesop

comment
Hard Truth Aesop: The series has the repeated message that some people have no good in them. Anyone who thinks otherwise will only be harmed. It's most stark in Outcast of Redwall, where it is feared an infant is born bad... and they turn out to be right. To the point that it turns out they gave him a name which is an anagram for "evil" and "vile". Yet even after he dies saving someone, this attitude doesn't change. It's portrayed as the nature of certain species (with just a few exceptions).

comment
Fiendish Fish: It features several species of fish treated as dangerous due to their size relative to the Talking Animal 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 and loses.

Anthropomorphic Shift: Overall, the characters in Redwall are far more like actual animals at the beginning of the series than they are in the most recent novels. Even the cover art reflects this, as some of the earlier◊ books◊ show the characters as far less anthropomorphic than some of the later◊ ones◊. Some artworks even go as far as to show them as humans with rodent heads and tails.

comment
The Neidermeyer: Cheesethief is hated by all of the other hordebeasts due to the viciousness with which he drives them during his brief stint as The Dragon. It's best not to think about the implications that hordebeasts used to serving under Cluny find Cheesethief's behavior unacceptable. Hogspit from The Long Patrol. He gets off on abusing his subordinates for no reason at all, treats those under his command as expendable fodder, and is humiliatingly outmatched when he tries to take on Log-a-Log himself. Swartt Sixclaw is a rare example of a Big Bad being this. He has a lot of trouble keeping his own troops in line (which is justified, since a lot of them were co-opted from other hordes). By the end of the book, most of his troops have concluded that he's led them from one disaster to another, and Veil, his own son, delights in pointing out what an inept leader he is.

Very much so in some of the later books. While the heroes don't exactly do anything as despicable as the villains, some of them commit acts that would brand them as Anti-Heroes when compared to earlier Redwall books, yet no one calls them out on it. At one point in High Rhulain, Tiria, who killed a rat by complete accident, gets yelled at by her father for not slaying all the other water rats she found, and the book makes it seem as though killing vermin just because they're vermin is perfectly acceptable.

Straight for the Commander: In the first Redwall novel, Constance the badger tries to end the siege of Redwall Abbey by sniping enemy commander Cluny the Scourge. It fails due to a rather accidental Decoy Leader situation. Later on, when Cluny falls in battle, the enemy army falls into disarray, and many of the invaders surrender immediately. The Bloodwrath causes the afflicted creature to see only their hated enemy, causing this trope with a side of Foe-Tossing Charge since every creature between the two might as well not be there.

Big "NO!": Happens Once a Season in the TV series. Season 1 has Cluny, shortly before he's crushed by the Joseph Bell. Season 2 has Log-a-Log, right before he Takes The Spear for Matthias. Season 3 has Clogg, right when he realizes his ship has been set on fire. There's also Martin at the end of an episode, when he wakes up and sees the Warden being strangled by snakes. The novel Mariel of Redwall has Mariel, when she was regaining her memory and remembered Saltar and Ledder throwing her shipmates off the boat in retaliation for her resistance.

Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: What happened to the sparrows? There were only 4 left by the end of the third book (possibly 5. General Ironbeak's rooks manage to bring one down; while it's unclear whether it survived in the book, in the TV series Constance finds it outside and it is shown being tended to shortly after). Assuming there are 2 males and 2 females, they would eventually be forced to inbreed to keep the sparrows alive. Possibly, this could have caused some screwed up genes, depending on how anthropomorphic the animals are supposed to be. Bagg and Runn don't appear in The Bellmaker, despite taking place only four seasons after their first appearence. Jacques never explains their disappearance.

Salamandastron had what is implied to be a dinosaur skull used to scare off vermin with tales of dragons.

Somewhat subverted in The Sable Quean. The Quean and one of her Mooks are plotting revenge on The Starscream, Zwilt the Shade. He tried to kill the Quean and sent the Mook's mate to his death. As they talk about their plans, we hear, for the first time, a vermin say the words, "I loved him."

Seers: Although most other supernatural/mystical elements are left vague, rare or revealed as a fraud, many characters really have the ability to see the future at least somewhat. However, they only usually have glimpses, which can be deceptive (e.g. Nightshade knows she'll always serve Swartt, yet not how she dies).

comment
#1 Dime: Redwall Abbey doesn't have many treasures besides Martin's gear (the shield, scabbard, armor, and especially the sword). That said, its ever growing tapestry, which cronicles events before and after the abbey's foundation, is most definitely this. A priceless artifact, the residents sometimes drop everything if a villain threatens to damage it. Several vermin actually exploit this to get the jump on them. In Redwall Cluny held on a piece of it for a while before Basil and Jess took it back. In Mattimeo, Ironbeak's army pretended to tear it up to lure the residents into a trap. In Marlfox, the main plot involves the heroes journeying to retrive the tapestry after the titular villains steal it from under them.

Shout-Out
 Redwall / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: A possible one to Judge Dredd of all people: the self-proclaimed Warden of a marsh with a tendency to use the phrase "I AM THE LAAAAAAAAW!" Joseph Bell was the name of the man who inspired Arthur Conan Doyle to create Sherlock Holmes. Redwall has a literal bell named after its maker Joseph. Swartt mocking Bowfleg as "Bowfleg the Old" and "Bowfleg the Glutton" after Nightshade calls him a great warlord is similar to the scene in The Lord of the Rings where Saruman similarly mocks Radagast. The animated series has the otters walk around without clothing while everyone else is fully dressed. This is a possible reference to The Wind in the Willows, where the four main characters Mole, Rat, Badger and Toad were drawn anthropomorphic, but minor character Otter was drawn as a regular old otter. Sparra charracter Bigwing. His name is one letter off from a character in a certain other xenofiction book about rabbits.

My Species Doth Protest Too Much
 Redwall / int_c8bea4ec
comment
My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Moles are all hardworking, salt-of-the-earth types except maybe three: a scholar, a wanderer, and the first warrior mole ever, Axtel Sturnclaw. However, the other moles don't make any fuss about it. Lonna Bowstripe is the first badger to use a ranged weapon, despite the narration insisting on how huge he is (even moreso than it usually does when describing badgers). In general, the further along you are in the series the more likely you are to see evil members of "good" species, with voles, for whatever reason, being more likely to be self-serving thieves or outright Quislings, along with the occasional hedgehog or squirrel.

Series Continuity Error
 Redwall / int_ca95473c
comment
Series Continuity Error: In Taggerung, Sawney Rath has a nicer moment of genre savviness when he swears he won't be one of the many dead vermin lords who've attacked Redwall ...except that one of the names he drops is Ferahgo, who never went near Redwall. Then again, that took place the equivalent of several centuries earlier, and Sawney, being a vermin chieftain, would have been going off of oral legends, not the official chronicles of the Redwall recorders. However, there is another one that's not so easily explained. In Mossflower, Bella the badger says that only male badgers make the journey to Salamandastron, but in Lord Brocktree, which chronologically took place before Mossflower, when Lord Brocktree is looking at some carvings of the previous badgers who had ruled Salamandastron, one of the names mentioned is Spearlady Gorse. On the other hand, Gorse may have come long enough ago that she simply wasn't recorded in Bella's books. Barlom from Outcast of Redwall states that he is the grandson of Timballisto and wishes Martin had lived long enough to have met him. The Legend of Luke states that Timballisto died shortly after the events shown in Mossflower, where Timballisto and Martin interacted on more than one occasion. Barlom says that he recalled sitting on his grandfather's knee though, making this impossible. Dandin and later Bryony are both described as great-grandchildren of Gonff. This would make them either siblings or first cousins. Jacques later said that they were only "distantly" related though, as Bryony's story occurred earlier than Dandin's by chronology. Realistically, in either case this is hardly "distant". Bryony being an older first cousin of Dandin is probably the best bet for fans who want to ignore what Jacques said and go by the text (it's never said just how much earlier her story takes place after all, and this gives the timeline some greater leeway).

He winds up loving it due to the fact that it's prepared in such a way that it doesn't look, smell, or taste like an elver, which is rather ironic, as eel's real world deliciousness has driven it to the point of being endangerd.

Lighter and Softer: The animated series tones down the violence significantly from the book by use of Bloodless Carnage and Gory Discretion Shots. Considering how violent the animated show could get regardless - including the instances where they didn't use a Gory Discretion Shot - this says numbers about how bloody the books could get. Particularly in the case of Skalrag the Fox. In the books, he's put on the torture rack before being hung from the gates and shot full of arrows. The animated series simply has him being tickle tortured. Oddly one of the more violent children's books... what network do they choose to put it on? PBS. The most family friendly network on the planet.

Wacky Wayside Tribe: Used constantly. The Legend of Luke would only be one-third the length without it. The Flitchaye could certainly count for this in Mariel of Redwall. They aren't mentioned again until near the end of the book, where it mentions that the scattered survivors of Greypatch's pirate crew were fleeing towards Flitchaye territory, with the implication that it would be the end of them. They also appear in Sable Quean. The Gawtrybe in Martin the Warrior are a tribe of Psychopathic Manchild squirrels that view violence as fun. Used again in Doomwyte with the Gonflins, a literal tribe of thieves and robbers.

Spin Attack: 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.

What the Hell, Hero?
 Redwall / int_d39e327f
comment
What the Hell, Hero?: Toran borderline verbally abuses Martha after she learns how to walk, all because she was upset that Bragoon and Saro went to Loamhedge for no reason. Rusvul Reguba gets one in Marlfox, from his best friend Janglur Swifteye. It's a very well-deserved one as well, because just before it Rusvul had screamed at his own son, who wants nothing more than to please him, over something that Dann had no control over and couldn't have even stopped. Rusvul even went so far as to say that it would have been better that he'd died than have to come back into the abbey and see Dann having been knocked unconscious by vermin. Janglur's speech actually makes Rusvul apologetic, but it takes Dann running off without telling anyone and being gone for weeks, for Rusvul to be able to apologize to him.

Denied Food as Punishment
 Redwall / int_d5b7a6e3
comment
Denied Food as Punishment: Sometimes done with hares, usually for having eaten too much food in the first place. This rarely ends well. Also seen sometimes with slaves in the series. This actually nearly got a character killed in Triss. After the hare in question (who had already been in trouble twice for eating food that belonged to other people) eats a trifle that the Dibbuns were supposed to get as a prize for winning a contest, the abbot makes him clean the abbey from top to bottom, with only lettuce and water for food. The hare then loads up a haversack full to bursting with food, and leaves. He then gets caught by the villains and has to be rescued, to no one's delight.

You Need a Breath Mint: If somebeast is eating or has just eaten wild ramson/garlic, do not be surprised if another beast comments about his or her breath. Special mention goes to Lask Frildur and his monitor lizards. Throughout The Pearls of Lutra, the author mentions multiple times that they all have foul breath. Ublaz had to turn away from Lask in the very first scene they were in just because it smelled so bad.

Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": The watervole from Eulalia!, who's just referenced as...the watervole. Even the Redwall Wiki never found out his name and just called him "Grumpy Watervole." Also the baby mouse in The Bellmaker, who is only ever referred to as "(the) mousebabe."

Lord Brocktree suffers a case of this when one of the enemy commanders decides to pull a Screw This, I'm Outta Here! and deserts with around 300 of his troops in tow. Said contingent of fully armed, trained vermin marches away and right out of the plot, never to appear again.

The Bloodwrath causes the afflicted creature to see only their hated enemy, causing this trope with a side of Foe-Tossing Charge since every creature between the two might as well not be there.

Inertial Impalement
 Redwall / int_da3e71e3
comment
Inertial Impalement: In the animation of Martin the Warrior, Martin's sword falls from Badrang's paws and into the prison pit. Martin dives for it and holds it up, and when Badrang leaps into the pit after him, he gets impaled on it. This moment provides the page image for the trope. Baliss' breakdown starts like this. He's blind and has a mouth full of dead crow, so he can't tell that he just headbutted a hedgehog so hard it rammed quills deep inside both of their bodies. Unfortunately, where Corksnout gets the spikes pulled out before they can fester, Baliss has no such luck. The Bellmaker has a rare example of a hero dying this way. Mellus, the resident Badger Mother, charges Cap'n Slipp when he's threatening some dibbuns. He raises his knife just as she bowls him over, and she ends up being stabbed through the heart and killed instantly.

Action Girl: Quite a few, starting with Jess Squirrel and Constance in the first book. Mariel is probably the best known and most popular of them among the fandom. Any female member of the Long Patrol fit the bill, notably Hon Rosie. Lady Cregga Rose Eyes also qualifies.

Mook Promotion: Tends to happen a lot, especially when The Dragon or one of the Co-Dragons is killed halfway through the novel and the Big Bad needs a replacement. But more than likely, said mook will not handle his or her new promotion well and will either get demoted or killed off even faster than said dragon. Just ask Zurgat, Lousewort, Graywort, or Hogspit, to name a few.

Continuity Drift
 Redwall / int_de86b894
comment
Continuity Drift: The first book of the series more or less stated that the stories take place in the "real world" - there's a full-sized church near Redwall Abbey, some vermin arrive stowed away in a horse-drawn carriage, and Big Bad Cluny the Scourge is said to come from Portugal. Three or four books down the line, the Redwall world has its own geography, and neither humans nor Portugal have anything to do with it. Then High Rhulain comes along and implies that the cats' distant ancestors were once pets. Salamadastron. In Mossflower Boar the Fighter uses a metal dragon to scare away any searats/vermin, inducing the legend of the fire lizard. In all the other books Salamandastron is just a military fortress. Martin's shield, sheath and belt disappear after Mattimeo. Lord Brocktree is the first Badger Lord of Salamandastron in the early books, later books would Retcon this. Bat Mountpit vanishes entirely from the Redwall Map.

Pike Peril
 Redwall / int_de9cad68
comment
Pike Peril: Pike are a recurring obstacle to river travel, though they end up eating uncautious vermin more often than heroes. An otterclan managed to capture an enormous pike which they call Stormfin, and use it to great effect to defend their homes (they beat a drum to announce it's being let out so the otters know to get the hell out of the water). Stormfin has associated its holding pen with regular food, so it will return eventually. A shoal of hungry pike known as the Teeth of the Deeps lives in the lake where Marlfox Island is situated, making escape impossible and approach difficult. The Marlfoxes feed dissident beasts to the pike, so naturally karma (and the pikes) bites them when Lantur is pushed into the lake by her brother Mokkan, who is later knocked into the lake while trying to escape and ripped apart by the ravenous pikes.

Evil Tainted the Place
 Redwall / int_df1cea7e
comment
Evil Tainted the Place: Saint Ninian's Church used to be a harmless place until Cluny the Scourge captured it and used it as a headquarters for his assaults on Redwall Abbey. After he was defeated, its former occupants never moved back in, leaving it abandoned and letting other invaders claim it during their attacks. After several generations of being a vermin base, an elder Rollo orders it destroyed following the death of a young abbey resident, because it's become nothing but a home for evil.

Decoy Protagonist
 Redwall / int_df410b77
comment
Decoy Protagonist: Veil Sixclaw, in large part due to the cover, which is actually of his father. Gabool is arguably a Decoy Antagonist. You would think with the book's description, he'd be going around causing as much turmoil as he could. Up until the end of Mariel of Redwall, all he does is sit on his throne going crazy and killing his own searats. The real Big Bad is Greypatch, who not only betrayed him with complete success but did what Gabool probably should've been doing in the story: trying to take over Redwall. Inverted again in Taggerung. Sawney Rath is killed not even a third of the way into the story. Bragoon and Saro from Loamhedge. They spend the entire novel looking for something to help Martha walk again, only to find nothing but bones. And on their journey back to Redwall, both of them sacrifice their lives, unaware that Martha had already learned to walk on her own.
