* AmnesiacGod: In the Raven Duology, Hennea appears to be an ordinary bearer of the Order of Raven and a mortal Traveler...until the second book reveals her to be [[spoiler:Raven, herself, one of the six deities that helped create the world]]. She, herself, is unaware of this until the rest of the characters learn it.
* GoneHorriblyRight: In ''Masques'', it is mentioned that a magician's apprentice once found a new spell for making it rain while his master was away. When the magician returned, the apprentice was living in a tent outside the castle, the castle itself being full of water.
* NotUsingTheZWord: In the Sianim series, shambling undead monsters that feed on human flesh are known as Uriah (both singular and plural). Since the series is set in a medieval fantasy world, "zombie" would have an OrphanedEtymology.

* HalfHumanHybrid: In the ''Literature/{{Hurog}}'' novels, half the cast have a dragon ancestor several generations back. ([[spoiler:Dragons can assume human form.]])
* ManInTheIronMask: King Jakoven in the ''Literature/{{Hurog}}'' series built the Asylum specifically to lock up his brother Kellen, having been warned in a prophecy that it would be a very bad idea to kill his brother. While it's common knowledge that he's in there, most of the common people seem to have bought the idea that he's genuinely nuts, rather than unjustly imprisoned.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Ward of Hurog, protagonist of the ''Literature/{{Hurog}}'' Duology, started feigning brain damage as a young boy to protect himself from his abusive father. As Ward is officially next in line for his father's title, his apparent incompetence becomes something of an obstacle later on.
