* Eragon's reaction to the giant snails, Snalgli. Whether the situation was really all that funny is debatable, but his amusement is infectious.

*Eragon's theory regarding the dwarves:
-->It occurred to Eragon that although the dwarves were the shortest of the races, they built the biggest structures in Alagaësia, which seemed odd to him. ''Perhaps'', he thought, ''by making such enormous objects, they do not feel so small themselves.'' He almost mentioned his theory to Orik but at the last moment decided that it might offend him, so he held his tongue.

* Eragon's ineptness with politics. This alone should have made it painfully obvious to any reader that he was never destined to become the next king of Alagaësia. One particularly amusing example comes towards the end of ''Inheritance'' during the discussions regarding just that matter: who is to be the next monarch. King Orrin of Surda is pushing for the position, but Nasuada is adamant that it should be hers. She offers him certain territories, at which point he starts quibbling over which ones should be part of the deal. At this point, it's obvious to anyone studied in politics that everything is done except the details and that Nasuada has just become the next queen, but Eragon still worries that Orrin is still after the job.

--> '''Glaedr''': Argh. [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes I hate spells that interfere with one's memory]]. They're the worst form of magic, always leading to chaos and confusion. [[GenreSavvy Half the time they seem to end with family members killing one another without realizing it.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Another great Eragon and Oromis moment, when Oromis has given Eragon some homework: scrolls to read which, according to Oromis, contain information that would be tedious to vocalize. Eragon's only response is, "Vocalize?" Oromis simply adds another scroll to the pile and says, "This is a dictionary."

* During the siege of Belatona, Eragon tries to spear soldiers standing on top of a guarded wall. [[EpicFail Not only does he miss them]] ''[[EpicFail completely]]'', but the soldiers call him on his failure and laugh at him like [[JerkAss assholes]]. Doesn't last long, as Arya grabs a spear and impales the lot of them.
