* LaserGuidedKarma: By mid-story, both and we and [[GenreSavvy Skantarios]] realize that [[spoiler: Skantarios never actually got a biological son and had to adopt his lieutenant]] because of his lack of empathy and his [[WhatTheHellHero morally questionable decisions]].

* {{Badass}} / {{Determinator}}: Both meta- and in-universe example - Skantarios the character ''and'' Skantarios the author. Look, if half the world hates you, your army is starving and close to desertion, and your only major city is besieged from the get-go, you have to be both of the above to even survive, let alone turn the table. The author gets plus-points for being the one who actually plays in that impossible setting.

Surrounded by hostile neighbors who can crush what little land it has left and put an end to the lingering legacy of Rome for good, it seemed that there is little the the Basileia can do except for [[VestigialEmpire surrendering its arms and step down...]]

* FamousLastWords: Really, [[spoiler:Ioannis]]? Calling yourself [[TemptingFate "the Invincible"]] in battle against Genessios?



* StopHelpingMe: InUniverse. Genessios and Vitos do ''not'' appreciate Vasileos getting the Pope to order a Crusade against the Mongols when they'd done most of the work already, and finish off their empire before they arrive to prove their point. The Hungarian king, aware of the dissension between the two, tells Genessios that as an ally of the Romans, he will not stand in his way if he makes a bid for the throne.

* SpareAMessenger: A tactic used by the Byzantines: they let the shattered remnants of an army regroup and run away, following them until they reach a city. Usually the city refuses to open its gates to let the survivors in, leaving them to be slaughtered by the Byzantines until they are conquered as well (helped by the severe morale drop caused by the survivors' deaths).
