* {{Crossover}}: In ''The King of the Swords'', Corum runs into [[Literature/TheElricSaga Elric of Melnibone]], and Erekose, two other aspects of the Eternal Champion. The experience is rather trippy for all involved, especially Erekose who clearly remembers ''being'' the other two. We also briefly spot DorianHawkmoon, another of Moorcock's heroes, although he plays no active part in the story.

* BigBad: In order in the original trilogy: Duke Arioch (the Knight of the Swords), Queen Xiombarg (the Queen of the Swords), and King Mabelrode the Faceless (the King of the Swords). One could argue that as the greatest of the Sword Rulers, and Chaos' main representative, Mabelrode is TheBigBad of the trilogy as a whole, though he does not take a direct hand in things until the final book.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Corum finds that a race of distant relatives is still alive, and after the gods of both Law and Chaos are wiped out, his world is left in peace and he is free to settle down with Rhalina. He's still gruesomely maimed and left a StrangerInAFamiliarLand, but on the whole he's better off than {{Elric}} was...]]

* OurElvesAreBetter: The Vadhagh are long-lived, magically talented, artistic, and peaceful rather than the creepy amoral FairFolk the [[{{Elric}} Melniboneans]] are. The Nhadragh also seem to be elf or High Men types.
