* TravelingLandmass: The island of Drift Avalii is drifting across the ocean and one would have to know its route to find it. There used to trade between it and the Malazan Empire, but all the trade ships were lost and the island and its inhabitants were forgotten, which -- as far as the latter ones are concerned -- may be for the best, because Drift Avalii houses the Throne of Shadow, the possessor of which would [[CastingAShadow have power over the Shadowrealm]]. It was put there to be out of everyone's reach in the first place, after all.

* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Shurq Elalle is one example--she is cursed, and even after death by drowning her soul is still connected with body. The setting does have normal zombies, however--necromancers use them as beasts of labour or as scarecrows for civilians, and other mages and magical beings can raise them if sufficiently motivated. The T'lan Imass could also be considered zombies, a race of undead and undying neanderthal-like warriors that have existed for 300,000 years.

* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Sergeant Sinter and Kisswhere. Kisswhere is all innocent beauty and wild seduction and lives on FavorsForTheSexy and ScrewTheRulesImBeautiful. She joined the army on a whim because she'd made too many enemies among the women of her tribe and figured she could just desert or sleep her way up should she get bored. Sinter on the other hand is the reliable and practical one with a case of HonorBeforeReason as far as Kisswhere is concerned. She followed Kisswhere to the army so she could make sure her sister would not get herself into trouble. Her entire life consists of cleaning up after Kisswhere and she admits to chafing under that yoke.

* AnimalEyeSpy: Bottle, the mage of Fiddler's squad, was taught how to access all of the various Warrens (schools of magic), but his most important skill is his ability to control animals in his vicinity, something he [[NoExceptYes insists is not actually a form of magic]]. This proves instrumental in keeping his squad alive while they're crossing hostile territory, as he can spread out over a large number of creatures at the same time if all he wants is their sensory input.
