* ShoutOut: Most obviously the Dunedin Rangers, but there's also one towards the end of ''The High King of Montival'', when Rudi/Artos learns that two companies of the Canadian "Force" (a peacekeeping organization descended from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police) are going to join his troop:
-->''"Ah, so [[{{Film/StarWars}} the Force is with us!]]"''

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: horribly averted, as most celebrities ''were'' harmed (and probably killed and eaten, too). Of the ones we actually hear about in the story, the British royal family has been put through the ringer with Queen Elizabeth II dying, Prince Charles taking the throne at the point of insanity, and Prince William being sent on a one-way trip in a leaky museum piece.

* HeroesWantRedHeads / RedHeadedHero: The Mackenzies, mother and son. Redheaded Juniper, a charismatic and courageous leader, attracts a couple of heroes. Later her redheaded son [[TheChosenOne Rudi]] is seen to be even more charismatic, and a warrior born. He draws not only the interest of the heroic Mathilda, but also the attention of a number of other females.

* WhatTheRomansHaveDoneForUs: The Portland Protective Association was established by Norman Arminger as a brutal,warmongering despotism directly responsible for a lot of deaths. However, later in the series it's generally conceded in-universe that Arminger's actions actually saved the lives of many in Portland (and certainly saved the city ''as'' a city), and forged a strong kingdom that would go on to play a vital role in the creation and survival of Montival.

* PrivateMilitaryContractors: How the Bearkillers make their living on the march from the Idaho backcountry to their eventual home. Mike even refers to the Bearkillers as ''condottieri'' (a free company of mercenaries) more than once.

There is however a strong helping of WeHelpTheHelpless involved, as the Bearkillers will rescue a party in distress and won't take more than their client can afford to part with in payment.
