* BlessedWithSuck: The titular magical artifact in "Cenedwine Brocade" protects its owner from harm, but does this by deflecting any attack from them -- possibly onto the people or objects nearby. This can result in people getting hurt or killed, or just worried that they would be if they don't avoid the brocade's owner... which makes life rather difficult for said owner. See also ClingyMacGuffin. Yes, it's one of those, too.

* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Nerissa is able to see what her cat sees. Since she has no other power over the cat, and since it is a perfectly ordinary cat in all other respects, she doesn't find this very useful.

* CloudCuckooLander: Silvertop. Snake calls him a "featherbrain". Somehow he still manages to be a fairly powerful magician. Given what the spells the readers are told about look like, his investiture must be ...quite interesting.

* RealitySubtext: In-story example. In "The Last Part of the Tragical History of Acrilat", Deleon writes a play about a family that has a great deal in common with his own. The terrifying priest-queen is his mother, the poetry-reading and ineffective king his father, the younger royal siblings are himself and his favorite sister (different in personality from their templates because he was basing them partially on the actors he wanted to have play them), and two older royal siblings who represent the combined personal flaws of Deleon's two older brothers and three of his older sisters.
