* DudeLooksLikeALady: Cob.
** This became a very weird semi case of ShesAManInJapan in the German dub where Cob spoke with a ''very'' feminine voice but was still talked about as 'he' and 'the sorcerer'.

* NotHimself: Arren's surprisingly violent attempt to dispatch the slavers without once drawing his sword.



* ShadowArchetype: Arren's shadow is rather confusingly characterized. Here goes: [[spoiler: It makes him kill his father (from inside), then doing nothing, then saving the love interest, then comes out to try and drown poor Arren, then out once more to save the day again and flirt with said love interest.]]
** [[spoiler: It is actually implied by the shadow in his last scene that Arren only ''thought'' that it was making him kill his father, be violent when saving Therru, and try to drown him. In actuality, all those deeds came from the darkness within Arren himself, and the shadow is the lost light he's subconsciously afraid of taking back, thus scapegoating it for all his bad deeds.]]

* DullSurprise: Most of the dub cast is exceptionally good...except for Mariska Hargitay as Tenar, who is very blatantly phoning it in.

* OurDragonsAreDifferent: They look like traditional Western dragons mostly, are creatures that chose "air and fire" when humans chose "earth and sea" and seeing two of them fighting and the beginning of the is a sign that bad times are there.
