Again, great series. Loved the first Mirror Words quiz.

When you say font feature, I thought this refered to the part of a church, or a fountain. What you actually mean is a "typeface". The Trump clue is quite out of date now.

Also Ogres are not a "movie villain", they're a mythical monster that have a much longer history. I can barely think of a film where an ogre is the villain. In Harry Potter and LOTR they are mere physical boundaries with zero character.

Updated the font and Trump clues. Regarding 'movie villain', you've got different clues ('Grimm villain' and 'Movie monster') confused with each other. An ogre certainly is a monster. And a wolf certainly is a villain in Little Red Riding Hood, for instance.

Now I'm wondering what the Trump clue was...

It was along the lines of “What Trump does?” (fires). A reference to The Apprentice.

Fun fact that i'm sure people on this website know...but the technical term for one of these kinds of words is an emordnilap......which is palindrome spelled backwards.

Quite amusing, English isn't my native language I must say.

Almost forgot one answer in which one of the words is my surname. xD

Glad I got the least guessed one, also missed one of the obvious ones though.
