* [[spoiler:PregnantBadass: In Book 14, she spends the better part of a day aiding her forces by way of channeling to hold back Shadowspawn forces while heavily pregnant, to the point of being so exhausted that she doesn't think that she'll be able to channel again if her life depended on it for a time. Davram Bashere admits that she was pretty much the only reason they kept up an entire flank of their forces in that battle.]]

* TemptingFate: Because Min has had a viewing that her twins will be born healthy, Elayne thinks she has PlotArmor until their birth. Other characters, Min included, are GenreSavvy enough to note that Elayne [[WrongGenreSavvy might be outsmarting herself here]].

She never [[spoiler: realized that this didn't mean that nothing ''bad'' could happen to her]] and she never [[spoiler: considered the possibility that just because Min's visions had never been wrong in the past]] there was no guarantee that [[spoiler: all of them would be correct in the future]].

** [[spoiler:EmpoweredBadassNormal: Bonded to Egwene as a Warder in ''Towers of Midnight''. Even moreso after he starts using the ''ter'angreal'' rings he obtained from the Bloodknives' assault on The White Tower in the Last Battle in ''A Memory of Light''.]]
* [[spoiler:DeadlyUpgrade: In Book 14, he puts on a [[SuperSoldier Blood]][[YourDaysAreNumbered knife]] ring, gaining limited {{invisibility}} and SuperSpeed, but shortening his lifespan to days.

* [[spoiler: FragileSpeedster: When equipped with the Bloodknives rings in The Last Battle, he's much faster and stealthier. It doesn't help him much against [[LightningBruiser Demandred]], considering that his enhanced speed is only barely able to keep up with the Forsaken.]]

* StrangledByTheRedString: Prophesied from before they even met, which Elayne [[{{In-Universe}} isn't happy about.]] They go from canoodling in alcoves (Book 4) straight to [[TheirFirstTime doing it]] (Book 9), despite not seeing each other for ''nine months'' in between.(Of course, it was eight years for readers, so they were a bit more forgiving.)

** It gets to the point that it's very close to a [[spoiler: deconstruction of ContractualImmortality. Elayne is safe from death...but not imprisonment, severe injury, mind control, or any number of other nasty things that very resourceful, very evil antagonists have done in the story. And once her pregnancy has advanced far enough that the twins can survive outside her womb, there's nothing to say that she won't suffer a fatal injury necessitating a C-section. Furthermore, she seems to forget that those around her are not under said contract]].

** She also is totally unbothered when she has to go without the luxuries of royalty. It's mentioned that she has no trouble adjusting to the spartan lifestyle of a Tower novice, and she seems to quite enjoy her time undercover as a tightrope-walker in a traveling circus.

* LawOfInverseFertility: When she finally manages to get Rand alone long enough to lose her virginity in book 9, Elayne immediately gets pregnant with twins. A mild example, as she is not at all displeased.

** However, Rand and Elayne do share a mutual half-brother, Galad, who is Rand's maternal and Elayne's paternal half-brother. Rand knows this by Book 5, but it's unclear if Elayne ever learns it during the series proper.

* ImperiledInPregnancy: Elayne gets pregnant in the ninth book. Thanks to a prophetic viewing, she is convinced her children can't be harmed and gets into trouble several times, finally coming to her senses after a particular wound runs dangerously close to her womb. Then things get brutal: during the climax of the last book, she runs afoul of a minor villain from previous books who intends to [[spoiler: cut out her unborn twins and use magic to keep them alive until they can be offered to the BigBad. He promises to rape her afterward. A timely plot device saves the day, however.]]

Added DiffLines:

* InformedFlaw: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]. His rigid sense of morality certainly is a flaw; even so, some characters- specifically his sister Elayne (who goes so far as to repeatedly [[IHaveNoSon deny that he is her brother]])- treat it as the [[ThisIsUnforgivable Worst Thing Ever]]; particularly petty with Elayne, where implicitly its rooted in Galad having a tendency to [[CantGetAwayWithNothing tattle on her and Gawyn]] when they were kids. Basically she gives him a lot more vitriol than she does even (other) Whitecloaks or the Red Ajah, or any other character who has far more serious KnightTemplar qualities than he. And whatever else you say about his limited ethical judgement, he at least can be said to be one of the more un-hypocritical characters in a series arguably filled with hypocrites.
