to:

* BlackAndWhiteMoralityBlackAndWhiteMorality: Things are pretty clean-cut in these books, especially with how most of the villains are outright demonic beings in the direct employ of the supreme god of evil.

* DoABarrelRoll: In ''Shadow on the Sand'', when the flying ship ''Skyrider'' is boarded by Drakkarim, Banedon calls out [[AttackPatternAlpha a maneuver code name]] for his Dwarven crew, and warns Lone Wolf to hang on something. Then he starts capsizing the ship to end up flying upside-down, sending the evil warriors plummeting to their death while the dwarves are hanging on to nets, gleefully shouting "Blood for Blood!" at their falling foes.


Added DiffLines:

* RelatedInTheAdaptation: In ''Fire on the Water'', Lone Wolf meets separately with both Durenese Lord Axim of Ryme and Viveka the mercenary woman, but there is no hint they could be related. In the ''Legends of Lone Wolf'' novelization, those two are father and daughter.

** The Darklords are explicitly described as impossible to kill with mundane or even most magical means. They can be banished to another world (one possible way to deal with Darklord Haakon), but otherwise you need a divinely-powered weapon like the Sommerswerd. Although it is later revealed that Darklord-forged weapons (like Helshezag, the Dagger of Vashna or a Zejar-Dulaga arrow) can also kill a Darklord -- no doubt on purpose, since other Darklords are [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder the most likely enemy they could have to confront]].
** Major demonic beings, like the Chaos-Master or Naar's Demonlords, are also impossible to fight with mundane or even ordinary magic weapons. Attacking Tagazin with a non-magic weapon just ''destroy the weapon'' -- and it is with a mere projection of the Demonlord on Magnamund, much weaker than his true form. You need to find their specific weakness or use their true name against them. On the other hand, the Sommerswerd once again always proves adequate for the task, although you must be ready for very though fights.

* HeroesPreferSwords: While there are other types of magic weapons, a few of which are even halfway decent, the best magic weapons are swords.

to:

* HeroesPreferSwords: While there are other types of magic weapons, a few of which are even halfway decent, the best magic weapons are swords. The Weaponskill Kai discipline in the first books has 4 chances out of 10 to give you some kind of sword as favored weapon. It's the best option in the game, since even beyond the Sommerswerd, it's the most commonly found weapon in a NoGearLevel.



* NoGearLevel: This can happen to the hero every couple of books early on. Notably in Book 2, after you get shipwrecked; in Book 5, 9 and 17, if Lone Wolf has to get out of jail; and unavoidably in Book 7, ''Castle Death'', when thrown into TheMaze.

** The Nyras Sceptre is empowered by the [[ArtifactOfDoom Doomstone of Darke]], the most powerful Doomstone created by Agarash the Damned. An ambitious Drakkar warlord named Magnaarn rediscovered both and used the Sceptre in a bid to conquer the good kingdom of Lencia. The Sceptre granted him vast power and allowed him to cow the [[EvilSorcerer Nadziranim]] and their armies into serving him, but he paid a terrible price. By the time Lone Wolf catches up with Magnaarn, he is little more than the Sceptre's frail near-undead puppet.

* MosesInTheBullrushes: How Grey Star ended up on the Isle of Lorn being reared by the Shianti. Despite the magic winds and illusions usually preventing mortals from reaching the island, after an especially violent storm a baby is found among some wreckage by the demigods. Seeing the hands of fate behind this unlikely event, they adopt the child and teach him their magic, in the hope he could one day deal with the evil of Wytch-King Shasarak.

In the iOS games, the Sommerswerd is retooled and requires Kai power (magic points) to unleash it. It's still a powerful weapon, but it's no longer a GameBreaker.
