* TakingTheBullet: How poor [[spoiler:Moonshade]] dies. When [[spoiler:Strongbow]] goes hunting so he doesn't have to watch the palace take off with her, he finds himself surrounded by hostile gun-toting humans. She shows up to give him one last hug and throws herself in the path of the bullet intended to kill him.

Added DiffLines:

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Averted with elves, Winnowill is a stunner and about as malignant as you can get, whereas bent old Ekuar is probably the most selfless elf ever. But played pretty straight with humans -- you can generally gauge how much of a threat a particular human is going to be by the ugly-factor.

* GoMadFromTheRevelation: Cutter temporarily in ''The Final Quest''. The fact that he and Timmain share 'the same soul'' - to a point where they actually can ''hear what the other thinks'' outside of regular sending, and the implication connected to the sharing of soul names between him and Skywise (who actually ''recognized Timmain'' via Cutter), sends him off the rails completely. At least for a time.

Added DiffLines:

** The name "Angrif Djun", of the human warlord, is obviously derived form the German word ''Angriff'' (meaning attack. Most appropriate).
* GreenAesop: Almost all the way. While most elves are tied to nature and depend on it (with "the restless ones" as the most extreme example), humans have a tendency to mess with nature in unhealthy ways. This goes back to the beginning of the original quest, where the human shaman orders a cleansing of the forest, burning it to the ground. Later, humans are not above trying other methods in the same vein, forcing the elves to fight, not only for their way of life, but for the preservation of nature itself. The natural, cyclic order is a strong, recurring theme in the series.

Added DiffLines:

* AbsoluteCleavage: A popular design in elf fashion. Special shout-outs to Leetah's floorlength duster from the second book (which is not worn with an actual shirt), Dewshine's strapless-and-plunging-neckline dresses that seem to casually ignore gravity, Tyldak's fur singlet thing that may or may not technically be his own hair, and pretty much everything Strongbow has ever worn.

** Little Patch faces something of an inversion; being raised among the Wolfriders, everything he knows about sexuality comes from them, and as he reaches maturity, he wants to join in with the Wolfrider ladies in... well, joining. While Aroree is willing to teach him, it doesn't work out because "[[HandWave our bloodsong is pitched much higher than they can bear]]".
