** Ciri can arguably qualify. Being a princess of a politically important kingdom is nothing when compared with [[spoiler: the ability to travel through time and universes]]. Thanks to that she is hunted by virtually ''everyone'', for a dozen different schemes.

** The supplementary materials (like Pamiętnik znaleziony w smoczej jaskini) explain why do the elves have no canines: [[spoiler: there aren't a product of evolution]].

** The protagonist himself is a victim to this because Witchers are considered mutants and often meet prejudice. Hell, he's even [[spoiler: killed in a pogrom]].

* SparedByAdaptation: {{Subverted}} by [[spoiler: Geralt and Yennefer]]. While it initially seemed so, Sapkowski revealed that they also survived in canon. Played straight however by [[spoiler: Regis]].

* LoveTriangle: A long-running and complicated one between Geralt, Triss, and Yennefer, PlayedForDrama. Geralt and Yennefer have been in love since ''Literature/TheLastWish'', but in practice have an on-again, off-again relationship ([[spoiler:in part due to Geralt tying their destinies together with the eponymous last wish from a djinn, so they're not entirely sure how much of their relationship is genuine]]). Triss seduced Geralt when he and Yennefer were "off", and Triss has carried a massive torch for him ever since. Thing is, she's also Yennefer's best friend and she frequently hates herself for loving Geralt. In the books, Geralt chooses Yennefer. By contrast, [[VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt the final game]] allows players to choose between the two.

** Within the video game series canon, the triangle has been solved as of ''Wild Hunt'': Triss and Geralt, though remaining friends, tied up their loose ends, while Geralt undid the djinn's wish and found that he and Yennefer still love each other despite it.

* WorldOfBuxom: Especially the games where just about every woman, from the Sorceresses of the Lodge to Skellige Shieldmaidens to peasant women are all well-endowed and shapely. Even grown-up Ciri has an impressive chest. Further, the more "important" a woman is to the plot, the more willing she is to have little fabric covering her chest. Again, even Ciri counts on this.

''The Witcher'' franchise started off as a collection of [[CharacterOverlap loosely connected]] {{dark|Fantasy}} [[LowFantasy Low]]/HeroicFantasy short stories which deconstructed classic FairyTales and then evolved into a series of (so far) eight novels with a strong MythArc. Written by the Polish author Creator/AndrzejSapkowski during TheNineties, the books were translated into multiple languages (including Russian and German) and adapted into comics, the Film[=/=]LiveActionTV series ''The Hexer'', and [[TabletopGame/TheWitcherGameOfImagination The Witcher tabletop RPG]]. The franchise first gained widespread attention in the English-speaking world, though, with the release of ''VideoGame/TheWitcher'', a video game adaptation-slash-sequel by the then-unknown Polish developer studio, Creator/CDProjektRed, English translations of the original novels have followed. As of 2016, six of the eight books have received official English translations. They have also been fan translated, and are freely available at The Witcher Forum (Video Game) Community "Our Community Fan Translations" Page. Also, after long development, Platige Image announced in May 2017 that the long-announced new English-language series, written by TV veteran Thania St. John based on two short stories from ''The Last Wish'' collection (''The Witcher'' and ''Lesser Evil''), will be co-produced by Creator/{{Netflix}}, Platige Image and Sean Daniel Company, responsible for the adaptation of James S.A. Corey's ''Series/TheExpanse''.

** Though in the final part of the video game saga at least, the Nilfgaard Empire appears neither totalitarian nor proto-fascist, and actually even compares rather favorably overall to (for general reference) most parties in ASongOfIceAndFire saga. Which isn't exactly high praise, but puts Nilfgaard in a proper context: It isn't really worse than an actual Medieval Empire would have been.

* MeltingPotNomenclature: Characters have all actual Polish or German names, which would have been very common in large parts of central Europe during the Middle Ages and still nothing unusual. While the German names mostly exist in English as well, the Slavic names might [[AerithAndBob seem a lot more exotic to western audiences]].

Several place names, particularly in Kaedwen have a mishmash of Irish and Welsh names and the Elder Speech borrows from both languages.
* MundaneUtility: The Igni sign gets this a lot. In addition to being a combat spell, it's often also used to perform such tasks as light candles or solder broken pots.
