Added DiffLines:

* AsYouKnow: In ''Split Infinity'' Sheen reviews details of the Games and Stile's career -- to Stile himself; he naturally quips "Thank you for the information." (The sarcasm goes over her head.)

* SadisticChoice: In ''Blue Adept'', before Stile intervenes on her behalf, Neysa is left with the choice of answering the Herd Stallion's summons for breeding season (leaving her oath friend Stile without her help on his quest) or defying the summons and sticking with Stile (and risking going from "outcast" to "exile" and giving up any chance of a foal of her own).



* UpgradeArtifact: The [[GreatBigBookOfEverything Book of Magic]] and [[MagicMusic the Platinum Flute]]. The Book lets anyone who possesses it to cast magic spells at an Adept's power level (It let a troll with no inherent magic become the new Red Adept). The Flute enhances the innate magic of anyone who holds it (allowing Stile, the Blue Adept, to use his magic withing the AntiMagic influence of a unicorn circle). Anyone who can actually play the damn thing gains Adept-level magic. A master musician? Becomes stronger than all the other Adepts put together.

The first trilogy (''Split Infinity'', ''Blue Adept'', and ''Juxtaposition'') starred Stile, a Proton serf who, after a mysterious assassination attempt destroyed his career as a race jockey, becomes the central figure in an ancient prophecy to SaveBothWorlds from destruction, or ensure said destruction. The first thre books, a standalone series in their own right, were originally known as the ''Split Infinity'', trilogy and only lost this title after the four sequel books were added.

** We see variants with Mach and Bane: Mach retains his robot brain's logic and processing power while in Bane's body, allowing him to work out and process spells and spell combinations far faster and effectively than Bane could. Bane, on the other hand, has his more abstract human mind in Mach's body, allowing him to use Mach's machine nature in more creative ways than Mach (like using Mach's modular components to hack systems and create sensor decoys).

* HybridPower: Flach's dual heritage - human magic potential and a unicorn's innate shapeshifting magic - give him VoluntaryShapeshifting abilities above and beyond beyond any other unicorns. We see him having mastered a bat and wolf form (along with his natural human and unicorn forms) before he was five years old.

* LoveConfessor: Adept Trool doesn't believe a woman as beautiful as Suchevane would be with someone as ugly as him except out of fear or pity. Suchevane, on the other hand, is so used to being a concubine that she takes Trool's failure to make a move as a lack of interest in someone so far out of his class, power and status-wise. They confess their feelings, separately, to Agape, who gets Suchevane to approach Trool in such a way that negates both their objections.
