* ForgotToGagHim: Both averted and played straight. When Lady Jessica and Paul are captured by the Harkonnens she is gagged so she can't use her Bene Gesserit [[CompellingVoice Voice]] ability on them. Unfortunately for the Harkonnens guarding them, Paul also knows how to use Voice.

* PaintingTheMedium: Some words like "SPICE" and "VOICE" tend to be printed in capital block letters to give them a sort of mystical echo (see above for DEATH in the Discworld novels). However, there are no capital letters in the Hebrew language, so the Hebrew translation has these words printed in bold and in a larger typeface than the rest of the sentence. This method makes them even more creepy and resfonant than the original, if at all possible.

* YouShallNotPass: Duncan Idaho sacrifices himself to hold off a flood of Imperial Sardaukar elite troopers, while Paul Atreides makes good his escape. In the sequel, it's revealed that while he did indeed die, the surviving Sardaukar were so impressed with his ImplausibleFencingPowers that they preserved his body, later having it resurrected as a "[[CloningBlues Ghola]]"... and that, as it turns out, has some [[ForWantOfANail extremely far-reaching effects]] on the ''Dune'' universe.\\

->''I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.''

Unusually for the trope, the Fremen are well-aware that he didn't mean it that way and don't think anything of it.
