* BuryYourGays: Homosexuality being one of the few issues that is almost never brought up by Weber at all. Everything else, from slavery to sexism, is addressed in one form or other, but no gays.

* Large-scale assassination attempts (enough to classify as minor military actions) in the Empire from the Ashes, War Gods, and Safehold series.

* TheGoodKing: To the extent that one can make judgments about an author's politics from his works, Weber is a not-so-closeted monarchist, describing people as biased against monarchy and toward republics in his works, no matter how [[PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny tyrannical]] or [[HereditaryRepublic in name only]] that republic is. That said, it's important to note that he's a ''constitutional'' monarchist - all of his protagonist royals preside over or strive for some form of representative government. They have real but limited powers, or wield their theoretically absolute power in an enlightened, limited way).

* ''Literature/TheWarGods'': Fantasy novel set in an original world created by David Weber for gaming purposes. Uses the 5 Races of Man with the equivalent Orcs as the 5th race. Notable as being set AfterTheEnd of a Magitek empire. Has 4 novels and a novella, with another novel and novella to tie up the current generation eventually. A 7 book MagnumOpus is coming out with book one being currently edited, and per WordOfGod its the work he's really wanted to do for years. There's more random WordOfGod as its his private TabletopGame.

* HappilyMarried: Weber likes to put his characters through many, many types of hell -- but this does not usually include an unhappy marriage. {{Perfectly Arranged Marriage}}s are all over the ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'' series, and in ''Literature/HonorHarrington'', those characters who do settle down with someone long-term tend to be very happy. Even the BigBad of a series (see: [[spoiler:Albrecht Detweiler]]) can be happily married, in this case with [[spoiler:his wife Evelina]]. Exceptions occur, of course, but they are far more rare than a happy pairing.

* TrollingCreator: As the fans visiting his forums can attest, to the point when "whatever we think, RFC[[note]]Runs For Celery, Weber's nickname on the forums[[/note]] will surprise us" and its variations are a common theme in many posts. A case worthy of mention is when in one of replies to ''Hell's Foundations Quiver'' snippet he posted another, short snippet which (apparently) presents the death of one of major characters (but cuts just before anything is made clear). When congratulated on making a good joke, stated that this is from the middle of the book.
