** Even soul-names appear to attempt a meaning in their sound related to a succinct description of the characters essence. Strongbow (Wyl/Will), Moonshade (Eyrn/Iron), Redlance (Ulm/Elm...he is a tree-shaper), Joyleaf (Dehl/dale), Cutter (Tam, the sound a drum makes and fitting as the chief/heartbeat of the tribe). In past generations you have a chilly, reserved healer of the Wolfriders with the soul-name "Aiyse" (ice). This tendency doesn't always ring true with soul names, but it happens often enough.

* MermaidProblem: Some of the Wavedancers are merfolk, with fish-like lower bodies. It's left unexplained if they can reproduce or have sex with those of human-like lower halves, and if so how.

* AstralProjection: Some elves, like Savah and Suntop, have an ability to "go out" of their bodies. In Savah's case this ends up getting her spirit trapped by Winnowill when she detects this.



* HumanSacrifice: The first arc starts with the humans attempting this on first one Wolfrider and then on the whole tribe.

* GodivaHair (Timmain GodivaHair: Timmain and Winnowill) Winnowill.



* {{Reincarnation}}: Lehrigen believes this happens to human souls, though there's no evidence of whether this is the case.



** Skot is a close second: One very sweet scene shows him randomly asking elves if they're up for some celebratory sex, and walking off carrying a giggling Shen-Shen over his shoulder. He's also one of the few elves to have two lifemates simultaneously.

* OneMillionBC: This comic is basically an fantasy version of this trope.

* OpenMindedParent: Most characters, because the elves have EternalSexualFreedom. A nice example is when main character Cutter realizes that his virgin daughter Ember (aged 16-ish) is sexually frustrated, and asks his best friend Skywise to take care of it. (Skywise refuses, but mostly because he knows he's not really Ember's type.)

* DifferentAsNightAndDay: A community version of the trope showed up early. The Wolfriders are a tribe of fair skinned hunters who preferred the night in their original homeland, while the Sun Folk were a dark skinned community of peaceful desert farmers who preferred the day. However, once some misunderstandings were resolved, both tribes find that they complement each other well and merge surprisingly easily.

* EasilyForgiven: Rayek collapsed the Go-Backs' lodge on top of their Chief, Kahvi, and banished the rest, calling them magic-less degenerates, as DisproportionateRetribution for not protecting his mentor Ekuar and his daughter's "death" (whether or not the Go-Backs were to blame for these things is another matter); Treestump and Clearbrook watch him do it, and don't give him any more than a mild scolding.[[note]]It's understandable that they are hesitant to antagonize Rayek after seeing him unleash his powers and also because without him, they have a very long and arduous trek back to the tribes; but still it's a bit jarring.[[/note]]

* MarryThemAll: A fairly common solution for elves who find themselves in a LoveTriangle. For example, Dewshine is delighted when Scouter Recognises Tyleet, and immediately welcomes Tyleet as her new lifemate, eventually even sharing her soulname. The fact that Rayek won't share Leetah with Cutter is considered quite unorthodox.

* NonhumansLackAttributes: Preservers
* NowIKnowWhatToNameHim: Elf mothers communicate telepathically with their fetuses as seen with: Eyes High (who named her son Skywise), Toorah (who named her daughter Leetah, "healing light", after sensing her healing powers), and Rainsong (who named her son "Mender" for the same reasons).
* NudeNatureDance: Leetah and Nightfall's forest dance in ''Siege at Blue Mountain'' probably qualifies, aside from its obvious sexual implications. (It's actually foreshadowed by a mention in one of the novelizations, of couples doing that sort of thing.)

* NoPeriodsPeriod: Elven females don't menstruate, so it's justified with them. However as a human woman Shuna does, and this distracts the wolves to the point that they have her live apart from them while she's menstruating.

* IllegalReligion: Once he starts getting delusions of grandeur, Gromul Djun bans worship of the humans' deity Threksht, and making offerings to or idols of the Hidden Ones (i.e. the elves in the forest) while also declaring ''himself'' [[AGodAmI to be a god]], whom they alone must worship. After this and some other outrages, it's not long until they rebel.

* GagBoobs: A quick gag. Leetah heals a young human girl, and the girl's mother gives Leetah one of the girl's dresses (Leetah's own clothes had been torn to shreds in an earlier accident). The dress fits well enough in most ways, but the little girl is, well, a little girl. Leetah is a grown woman, a mother, and unusually buxom for an elf. Unsurprisingly, her boobs get squished, a source of quiet amusement to both her and the human mother.
