* RedHeadedHero: The very first sign that he's different from the other members of his PowerTrio is that his tall frame, red hair, and light eyes mark him out from the dark-haired, dark-eyed Two Rivers folk.

* {{Badass}}: By Book 13, [[spoiler:Rand is the single most powerful being in the world. He is the strongest channeler, arguably the most skilled channeler as well- along with controlling roughly half the continent the story takes place on. Add to this the fact that he cleansed the Taint from ''saidin'' (giving the Light its only true victory in 3,000 years) and carried enough power to ''unmake reality itself''.]]
** [[spoiler: In Book 13, Rand goes out on the battlefield against enough Trollocs, Fades, Dragkhar, to overrun the Borderlands in a few days, even if ''every'' Borderlander goes to fight against them. '''''[[OneManArmy Alone.]]''''' Not only does he completely [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomp]] every single one of them, but the sheer amount of power he used drove every Darkfriend within a few miles radius completely insane.]]



* OneManArmy: [[spoiler:In ''Towers of Midnight'' he takes on an army of one hundred thousand Shadowspawn in one battle, and wins, using Arrows of Fire, [[TeleFrag Deathgates]], and what is essentially PowerOfTheStorm for over an hour straight.]] See above: {{Badass}}.

* {{Badass}}: Gains multiple [[TookALevelInBadass levels]] as the series goes on, both in physical skill and [[TheStrategist strategizing]].

A farm boy from a village so remote that they didn't even know they were technically part of a kingdom, Rand had no idea he was adopted until one fateful Winternight when [[TheUsualAdversaries Trollocs]] attacked his home town. Thereafter he was told by the story's [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan]] that [[BigBad The Dark One]] was trying to find him (or perhaps one of his two friends, Mat Cauthon and Perrin Aybara), and was convinced to flee. This was just the first step in Rand's journey into discovering that he is a male channeler, [[TheChosenOne The Dragon Reborn]], and fated by the Wheel of Time to lead the fight against Shai'tan...

* BecomingTheMask: Perrin hates that axe and wants to get rid of it. His personal [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan]] tells him to throw it away only when he's started to like using it.

Added DiffLines:

** PastLifeMemories: And before meeting the Eelfinn, there are many hints that Mat's GeneticMemory isn't all that generic. Some of his Old Tongue outbursts and memories suggest he was previously a top-ranking Manatheren general, or even a king.

** Unlike many examples, instead of ''wanting'' to be normal, Mat continually insists that [[ImplausibleDeniability he]] ''[[ImplausibleDeniability is]]'' [[ImplausibleDeniability normal]], and is just an ordinary guy caught up in Aes Sedai business and Rand's destiny. Despite the fact that he has supernatural luck, an AntiMagic medallion, the [[spoiler: memories of history's greatest generals, helped invent cannons, is one of the [[BadassNormal best non-magical fighter]] in the series, is married to the most powerful woman in the world]], and is a ''ta'veren''. You sometimes get a sense that he knows he's lying to himself.

By the end of Book 14, [[spoiler:he is the most powerful known Dreamer in the world, with Slayer dead and the Aiel wise ones refusing to enter Tel'aran'rhiod in the flesh.]]

* PhysicalGod: In the end of his battle with [[TheAntiGod the Dark One]], he uses so much of the One Power and the True Power that the BigBad is deemed an insignificant ''pest'' by comparison, screaming in futility, and he more ''allows'' it to live rather than having difficulty killing it. This is also one fairly common interpretation of the [[spoiler: [[ShrugOfGod very mysterious]] [[EpilepticTrees incident]] with Rand's "impossible pipe" at the end of the series' epilogue.]]
