* RealityEnsues: Inigo is basically a walking RealityEnsues trope to the classic "live for revenge" plot. He discovers that it's not easy to find a man when all you have to go on is "the man with six fingers," and it takes over twenty years to find his mark. In that time, he discovers there's no money in pursuing revenge, so he has to work for Vizzini to pay the bills. Also, since his entire sense of self-worth is in his sword skills but he worries that they won't be enough to defeat "the man with six fingers," he becomes TheAlcoholic to keep his confidence up. Finally, after he manages to defeat Count Rugan he realizes [[AndThenWhat he doesn't know what to do with his life now that it's over]].
