** Subverted, as all the technology developed in the land of Qâ was actually brought by aliens and most of it starts falling apart when the aliens are gone.



* OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame: Averted; dwarves are close to the original Norse creatures, but smaller. They look more like [[OurGnomesAreWeirder gnomes]], in fact.

* SacrificialRevivalSpell: [[spoiler: Thorgal]] is in a place with bright glowing strings all around him representing human lives. He will only get his life back if he cuts a single one, killing the person. He refuses, but [[spoiler: Shaniah]] cuts it herself. [[spoiler: Thorgal]] returns to life, but as they leave, she fades away, as it was her own lifeline she'd cut. [[spoiler: At least that's what she figures, but they fell through quite a few nets of threads while falling down. [[ArtisticLicensePhysics Even if there's no reason they would fall anywhere in empty space.]]]]

* WarriorPoet: One that would rather be poet than warrior. Thorgal was a Skald (Scandinavian Bard) in his youth, courtesy of his tribe's king Gandalf-the-Mad as an attempt to keep him isolated from the rest.

* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: The powers are spread fairly unevenly among Manthor's pupils. Ingvild's sole "power" is good agility and a superhuman sense of balance and Draye possesses the not extremely impressive power of levitation. On the other end of the spectrum is Arlac, whose telekinesis is strong enough to hurl heavy candelabras across the room or pin a grown man in his chair. But even his power seems weak compared to Jolan, who can melt people's weapons, heal others and desintegrate/reconstruct objects and who, as shown in the Qa and Shaigan arcs, also seems to have telepathic abilities and the ability to use his powers over a distance.

** Actually, she displays it twice, both times on Kriss of Valnor : just after cutting off her hair (flooring Kriss with a slap then putting a dagger on her throat) and much later before Kriss' death (Kriss tries to seduce Aaricia from behind, the latter bodily throws her off and dunks her).
---> (Aaricia, holding Kriss under her dagger) : the peasant nappy changer is ALSO a viking princess, Kriss of Valnor! DON'T FORGET THAT!

Added DiffLines:

* SkyCell: There is "mouth of the Sun", though it is more a death penalty than a prison. The victims are taken (via a net on ropes) to a small cave in the face of the cliff. Not only do they have no way out, short of jumping to their deaths but the whole thing is located in the desert and the cave is facing south and not nearly deep enough to provide shade... even if it wasn't filled with mirror-like crystals.

* {{Filler}}: Both "Alinoë" and "Lord of the Mountains" are standalone stories that don't affect the status quo and are rarely referenced afteward. The former however foreshadows Jolan's powers and the latter introduced time travel that becomes important in "The Crown of Ogotaï".
