Added DiffLines:

* SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Under king Iadon, Arelone peasants are basically slaves, with no right to leave their master's land. And Sarene is particularly horrified by an argument between two aristocrats over the ownership rights to a runaway slave - ''and a child he has fathered'', with no regards that they would be splitting a family.


Added DiffLines:

* SoiledCityOnAHill: Elantris, in the eyes of Derethi priests, who claim it was destroyed because of its inhabitants's pride.

* KingIncognito: Raoden, sort of, several times. [[spoiler: When he's first sent to Elantris, he doesn't give his real name. People unusually smart and/or close to him figure out who he is in the end, but most people come to follow him simply because he's leading by example and getting things done. When Sarene accidentally subverts his efforts to help Elantrians by giving them handouts, he doesn't admit to being in charge and lets her think the former gang leaders are still running things. And later, he leaves the city disguised as a JiveTurkey, because he's still trying to figure out how to fix the magic.]]

* EurekaMoment: When Raoden shows Sarene his research on the [=AonDar=], she remembers a mnemonic trick she was taught to remember some of the Aons, based on the nearby geography. [[spoiler:This eventually leads Raoden to realize that the reason the [=AonDar=] aren't working is because Elantris' geography itself has changed because of the Chasm... and then to realize ''Elantris itself'' is another [=AonDar=] that is only missing a line to be complete.]]

* AmbiguousDisorder: Adien, son of Kiin, appears to be this. He's never stated to be autistic, [[TheRainMan but he constantly repeats]] [[GoodWithNumbers strings of numbers]], and is socially completely withdrawn. [[spoiler: {{Subverted}}. He's actually an Elantrian, and a Hoed at that, for whom the numbers are his MadnessMantra. His family has [[WhatHappenedToMommy disguised his condition as this trope]].]]
