* The ''Literature/AlcatrazSeries'', notable in that while they're aimed at the Children/YA audience, they still have his signature cool new magic systems, philosophical digressions, and a decidedly snarky sense of humor.

* OurGodsAreGreater: The Shards of Adonalsium. Each Shard embodies an aspect (Honor, Preservation, Ruin, Odium, Cultivation, etc.) of the now-shattered Adonalsium, and holds a portion of its former power; the Shards also act as the source of the Cosmere's various magic systems. Shards and their holders have significant power to alter reality, but are limited by their aspect in how they can supply their magic. Preservation gifts you magic while Ruin steals magic from another with some fraction of the magic ruined. They are also limited to some extent in what they can do with their magic. Cultivation, who presumably cares about cultivating things for the future, is better at seeing the future than Honor, who cares about honor in the present.

* InsufficientlyAdvancedAliens: Since FTL travel and communication rely on PsychicPowers rather than technology, it is perfectly possible for a race to have interstellar travel before they invent the wheel. (This is explicitly stated to have happened at least once). In total, humans are several orders of magnitude more technologically advanced than any other race.

* AfterTheEnd: Used in both ''Literature/{{Elantris}}'' (where it's just the titular city), ''Literature/MistbornTheOriginalTrilogy'' (where the whole world is post-apocalyptic), ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'' (where The End just keeps coming in a cycle of EternalRecurrence), TheReckonersTrilogy (civilization was destroyed by superhumans)...there's alot of this going around.

* SealedEvilInACan: ''Humanity''. The Phone Company refuses to release the secret of FTL travel in order to keep humanity locked up in our own solar system, where we can't hurt anyone else. [[spoiler: In the end, Jason learns that the aliens are just as evil, and prepares to release the secret of FTL travel.]]
