* AdaptationalWimp: Zig-zagged with Murtaugh. The film downplays his skill with the sword, but gives him much more prowess with the bow and arrow, turning him into TheArcher.

** Played straight with the Ra'zac. They lack the strong exoskeletons and poisonous breath of their book counterparts, do not use [[PoisonedWeapons Seithr]] [[HollywoodAcid oil-coated]] weapons and both are taken down in a short fight with Eragon and Brom.



* AgonyOfTheFeet: Durza [[BadBoss stabs one of his own Urgals]] in the foot with a blade.



* BigDamnHeroes: Murtaugh does this twice during the film, once at Gil'ead and once at the entrance to Farthen Dur. Eragon returns the favor during the FinalBattle

** The Urgals in the Book are described as tall, large, grey-skinned {{Horned Humanoid}}s. In the movie, they are pretty much Tolkien-esque Orcs with white and red skin, and have no horn.

* TheStoolPigeon: Like in the book, Sloan the butcher ends up squealing to the Razac about Eragon's possession of the egg. Unlike the book, however, the reason he did so was heavily implied to be under the Lacerated Larry type (ie, he was tortured into giving the information).

* AdvertisedExtra: Even though he's shown in many promotions and on the poster and the DVD cover, Galbatorix has very little screen time. Justified in that he is the [[GreaterScopeVillain ultimate evil]] while Durza is in the role of the [[BigBad main antagonist]].

* AmbiguouslyHuman: It's unclear if any of the non-humans from the book are still non-human here, they all just look like humans in different clothes and their race is never mentioned.

* DeathByAdaptation: The Ra'zac. In the book, they survive their encounter with Eragon and Brom's with them, [[spoiler:personally killing the latter and dying in the third book.]] Here, they are killed halfway through when Eragon hangs one and Brom stabs the other with Zar'roc.
