* AbortedArc: Roran's job at Dempton's mill in Therinsford. He takes it in ''Eragon'' in hopes of having money to marry Katrina, and it's a big plot point for a few chapters. But Roran gets PutOnABus when he leaves for the mill, and is not seen for the rest of the book. And the job itself ends up being cut short by the death of his father, and Roran is back in Carvahall by the beginning of ''Eldest''.

* {{Forgiveness}}: Forgiveness is something of a theme in the series. In ''Eldest'', after Saphira apologizes to Eragon for giving him the cold-shoulder throughout most of the book because she was infatuated with Glaedr, Eragon tells her that "Family members forgive one another, even if they don't always understand why someone acts in a certain way. You are as much my family as Roran— [[UnfortunateImplications more."]]

* APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil: This is [[DiscussedTrope discussed]]. Neither of Eragon's teachers, Brom or Oromis, taught the BigBad of the series, Galbatorix. Oromis says he's glad for it because Galbatorix made sure to personally kill anyone that was involved in his teaching.

* HumblePie: Glaedr swears up and down to Eragon and Saphira that there is no way, not in a million years, that the Vault of Souls could possibly contain Eldunari. When it turns out to contain not only those, but dragon eggs as well, he is at once overjoyed, triumphant and shocked, but also has to eat a heavy amount of crow. It turns out that Oromis, Glaedr, and several other dragons and riders agreed to store the remaining free Eldunari and eggs deep underground and placed a memory enchantment over ''everyone in alagaesia'' to the exception of the next free dragon and rider (Eragon and Saphira) to prevent Galbatorix from learning about it and taking them for himself. It's unclear exactly ''why'' the possibility of how they were hidden the way that they were (deep underground) never occurred to him.

* ''[[TrilogyCreep Inheritance]]'' ''Inheritance'' (2011)



An officially endorsed guidebook, ''The Inheritance Almanac'', was released in October of 2010. A 5th stand-alone book continuing the story is planned at some point, but is not being actively written.



The final title in the series, ''Inheritance'', answered a number of key mysteries regarding the series, such as what was contained in the Vault of Souls and the fates of major characters like Galbatorix and Eragon, but left open certain nagging mysteries such as the source of the witch Angela's powers. Following its publication, author Christopher Paolini floated a number of possibilities regarding what he might work on in the future, including a hypothetical fifth title, spin-off titles focusing on characters other than Eragon, or separate works in other genres. As of 2014, however, over three years after the publication of ''Inheritance'', no further titles have been published and no new projects have been officially announced, though Paolini states on his official Twitter feed that he is currently writing a science fiction title.

The novels tell the tale of Eragon, a farmboy who discovers a dragon egg in the mountains and is amazed when it hatches for him. He raises the dragon, Saphira, and becomes bonded with her as a Dragon Rider. Unfortunately, the evil Galbatorix, the ruler of The Empire who betrayed and destroyed the Dragon Riders long ago, finds out, and sends his impenetrably cowled Ra'zac servants to capture Eragon and Saphira. They escape, but the Ra'zac burn down Eragon's home and kill his uncle. Our heroes set out for revenge, joined by the village's old storyteller, Brom, who, as it turns out, is a former Dragon Rider himself. On their quest, Eragon and Saphira meet up with a {{Badass}} AntiHero with a MysteriousPast, rescue an elf princess, join the Varden (LaResistance), learn the truth about Eragon's past and his missing father, and face down foes far more powerful than themselves—eventually culminating in a final battle against Galbatorix himself.
