** Tavi and Kitai [[spoiler: brought the new Vord Queen into the world, so naturally they were responsible for taking her out.]]

A high fantasy/intrigue series written by JimButcher (of ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' fame), the Codex Alera is set in a world that is populated by the descendants of the [[LostRomanLegion IX Roman Legion]] (according to the WordOfGod). They have carved out a massive empire led by the "First Lord" and they all have magic--specifically, they all bond with one or more "furies", elementals of air, water, fire, earth, wood or metal. Those who control enough furies can become Citizens, with increased privileges and obligations above the common freeman, but everyone has at least one fury. Well, everyone save [[UnSorcerer one]].

** The first book says that most people only have one fury, though some can summon two. The rest of the series has no such restriction and [[spoiler: eventually Tavi gets power to use all elements, though not in great strength.]]

** [[spoiler: Isana wanted Tavis' growth stunted so people would think him younger than he actually was. She got what she wanted, but it also severally delayed Tavis' ability to use fury crafting. He didn't learn he could use any power until he'd reached near his full maturity. It caused him much pain and anger after he learned Isana had done it even unintentionally.]]

* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: This is what scenes involving High Lords Antillus and Phrygius turn into. [[BoisterousBruiser Antillus]] says something dim-witted or [[CaptainObvious obvious]], [[DeadpanSnarker Phrygius]] makes fun of him for being an idiot. [[VitriolicBestBuds They are best friends]].

[[BoisterousBruiser Antillus]] says something dim-witted or [[CaptainObvious obvious]], [[DeadpanSnarker Phrygius]] makes fun of him for being an idiot. [[VitriolicBestBuds They are best friends]]. The whole setup is only made funnier by the fact that both lords are in their late fifties, members of the absolutely highest social and political echelon of Aleran society and powerful enough furycrafters to level cities on their lonesome.

** Tavi was ''supposed'' to be BeneathNotice in ''Cursor's Fury'' when he goes undercover in the First Aleran Legion as the Third Subtribune Logistica, a position without significant power or authority in the Legion's command structure. Gaius wanted him attached to the Legion so he could monitor its activities without arousing suspicion himself. Unfortunately, the events of the novel soon thrust him into the (Very public) spotlight.

* XMeetsY: WordOfGod is this series actually started because someone dared Butcher to write a LostRomanLegion story based on Franchise/{{Pokemon}}.

* CantArgueWithElves: Somewhat of an odd one. The "elves" (Marat) in this case are less technologically advanced than the humans and can't use the elementals. They do however, seem to have a much better understanding of philosophy and basic reason than most humans (this world included). They take for granted things that seem to elude the highest of all Alerans like killing and fighting until an entire walk of life is dead is insane and love will be love and you can either kill everyone or else stand aside.

* DoorFu: This happens one time when some characters are trying to hold a room against some taken Canim. They are about to break through the door, so one character decides to break the door down in such a way that it falls outwards and crushes one of the Canim.
