* TwentiesBobHaircut: Probably in keeping with the UsefulNotes/WorldWarI-era aesthetics in Ancelstierre.

* BigBad: [[spoiler: Of Clariel]]


Added DiffLines:

* GreaterScopeVillain: [[spoiler:In ''Clariel''. He isn't related to the BigBad and even helps Clariel along in her quest, but this is at least partly because he feels influencing Clariel will result in him gaining his freedom down the line.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BigDamnHeroes: When he feels like it. [[spoiler:Double subverted in ''Goldenhand''.]]


Added DiffLines:

* EvilMentor: A rather more benign version of this trope than usual, but he still influenced Clariel to take the road she did, believing it would set in motion his own path to freedom. PlayedWith in that Clariel becomes fully aware of this and doesn't hold a grudge against Mogget, even parting with him as something of a friend at the end of her novel.


Added DiffLines:

* RedemptionEqualsLife: Figuratively. [[spoiler:He earns his freedom from his lifelong enslavement clause to the Abhorsen line after siding with the heroes against Orannis.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ThisIsGonnaSuck: When Belatiel renews his vow of allegiance (read: enslavement) to the Abhorsen line.


Added DiffLines:

* BirdsOfAFeather: Clariel empathises with Aziminil, feeling just as trapped and constrained as the Free Magic creature, and [[spoiler:relents when she has the monster at her mercy, letting it go free.]] At the same time, though, [[{{Foreshadowing}} Clariel is seduced by the power and dominance she felt]] while bending Aziminil to her will.


Added DiffLines:

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Clariel makes this observation of several tragic occurrences in her novel, sometimes towards herself.


Added DiffLines:

* FriendshipMoment: With Mogget in her novel's epilogue.


Added DiffLines:

& ThatWomanIsDead: Killed, in her own words, [[HurtingHero by Clariel herself]].

* MasterSwordsman: She topped her fencing classes and proves a lethal swordswoman when confronting the Dead.




* AnimalisticAbomination: Looks like a small white cat (normally). Is actually a tremendously ancient and powerful free magic elemental [[spoiler: and essentially a god being punished, as it turns out]].

* DarkIsEvil: The Dead in general are generally described as wraith-like creatures of smoke and shadow, at least when not attached to a particular corpse. Kerrigor goes through several forms during ''Sabriel'', and each of them follows this aesthetic to a greater or lesser degree.

* HeroKiller: [[spoiler:Given what badasses the royal line produces, it's quite a feat to murder all of them and near-permanently incapacitate the last. And then he becomes responsible for the death of Abhorsen Terciel, and has been fighting off Abhorsens for centuries, wearing the family down without being destroyed himself- again, quite a feat]]. Taken to its final, ludicrous extreme when he bests and consumes [[spoiler:Mogget, one of the Bright Shiners, without any notable effort.]]

* HybridMonster: Why Kerrigor is just so dangerous. Not only is he a powerful Dead spirit and a Free Magic practioner, but he [[spoiler: is a royal prince with the powers that come with that. He gives his followers a mark to link them to himself, increasing his own power in the perversion of the bond between Old Kingdom subjects and royals, where each one strengthens the other.]]

* ImAHumanitarian: Like all the Dead he has to feed on Life in order to keep himself out of Death.
