* 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, [[spoiler:Geralt chooses Yennefer.]] By contrast, [[VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt the final game]] allows players to choose between the two.

* LineOfSightName: Sapkowski likes this trope. One character shares her name with a city in France. Another one with a mountain in Iran. Yet another one is named after a town in Ireland. Vilgefortz of Roggeveen is a more complicated case -- Roggeveen was the surname of the captain who discovered Easter Island. There's a whole long list of such "creative" names.

The most egregious example is probably the mare named Chiquita, which is a brand of banana. There's a whole long list of such "creative" names.

* {{BFS}}: {{averted}}. Despite their reputation, the distinctive "witcher swords" are a pair of very well balanced and suprisingly light longswords honed to a razor edge, one made of steel, the other plated in silver. Combined with the witchers' alchemically enhanced musculature and speed, they make witchers nearly invincible under most circumstances.

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Nilfgaard Empire. Totalitarian state with world dominance ambitions (with ''Lebensraum'' gist), disdain for other nations as uncivilized subhumans, troops with black uniforms and lightning emblem (aka ''Sig'' rune) and so on. Also, the conquest of Aedirn follows to the smallest details the history of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poland_Campaign Poland Campaign,]] including: false-flag operation as a cause, ''Blitzkrieg''-like deep raids of cavalry (in the place of tanks) and backstabbing from a former ally, who make a pact with an aggressor to acquire territories they claim are rightfully theirs. Though ironically, Sapkowski's Czech fans reportedly tend to interpret the Aedirn situation as a FantasyConflictCounterpart to ''Poland'' annexing Silesia from Czechoslovakia a few years earlier (a secret portion of the Hitler-appeasement deal that publicly netted Hitler's government the Sudetenland).
