* AntiMagicalFaction: Galbatorix has the ultimate goal of restricting all magic use, though he doesn't wish to wipe it out entirely. He claims that magic is the great unfairness in the world, as someone either can or cannot use it; there is no learning to use magic.
* ArrowCatch: Eragon in the second book when a volley of arrows is unleashed at him. He deflects most of them with magic, and catches one in his hand.

* ElectiveMonarchy: The dwarf clan chiefs vote to appoint another king or queen upon the creation of a vacancy in the position. In ''Brisingr'', after the death of LaResistance-friendly King Hrothgar, a few isolationist clans [[spoiler:unsuccessfully]] oppose the royal candidacy of Orik, his nephew and heir. The elves do the same in ''Inheritance'' too, with a number of families, noble houses and elders required to consent on the choice. [[spoiler: Arya]] is the one they appoint in the end.

* LogicalWeakness: Elva can deliver {{breaking speech}}es due to her knowledge of what pains everyone... so Galbatorix just stops her from speaking with a spell to begin with.



* NotSoDifferent: The heroes have committed some distasteful actions of their own, such as poisoning Galbatorix's army before a battle. Lampshaded by Elva, who points out to Eragon, "[[spoiler:Galbatorix would approve.]]" when he tries to [[spoiler: forcibly remove her powers after botching the job the first time.]]

* WeCanRuleTogether: In ''Brisingr'', Eragon receives this offer from his father Morzan.... [[spoiler:but A.) It was only a nightmare (Morzan had long been dead.) and B.) Morzan wasn't really his father; he just thought that he was, until he later learned otherwise.]]

Unsurprisingly she refuses.



* WhatMeasureIsAMook: PlayedWith. Eragon and many of the heroes slice through enemy soldiers and Urgals with abandon because of the war. Though as the books continue, Eragon does try to factor in that many of his enemies are just normal people, conscripts, or even forcibly drafted with magic. After the climactic battle in Eldest Eragon makes a point to help all injured soldiers regardless of faction, and when seizing a future city he offers a chance of surrender to the empire soldiers, and demands his allies treat those that took the offer with respect.
