* AllMythsAreTrue: If it's not fae, spirit, werewolf, witch, something else from some mythology, it's probably a human. Also Bran is [[spoiler: pretty much Sir Marrok of Arthurian Legend AND the inspiration for Grendel]].

Added DiffLines:

* NoodleIncident: Mercy had a history as a child and teenager of playing pranks on Bran whenever she was annoyed at him for something. The stories of how she peanut buttered his pants, wrapped his brand new and very expensive car around a tree, and stole his wife's shoes have all been told. What she did that involved a chocolate Easter Bunny has not.

** In ''Silence Fallen'', this turns out to have been [[spoiler: Bonarata's]] plan all along. [[spoiler: And it turns out that even that was the result of an even deeper gambit by Coyote to get Mercy into Prague]].

** In ''Silence Fallen'', it's outright stated that if someone did actually kill Mercy, Bran would [[ThisMeansWar declare war]]. He'd regret it afterword, he might even regret it while he did it, but he'd ''utterly destroy'' whomever was responsible.



* CombatPragmatist: All of the werewolves, for the most part, but Mercy also. In ''Moon Called'' it takes the werewolf member of a trio of trained mercenaries to restrain her completely.

* SheCleansUpNicely: This is Mercy's opinion of her looks, since she works as a mechanic she typically just wears grubby clothes with no makeup, her hair pinned back, and has oil stains up to her elbows. Other people disagree, see MsFanservice above.

* SuperDrowningSkills: Since werewolves are pretty much solid muscle, they tend to sink like a stone. This makes it a favorite suicide method among old werewolves who don't want to die fighting.

* WouldHurtAChild: The mercenaries in ''Frost Burned'' have a kill list that includes all of Adam's wolves and everyone who's involved with them, kids included. Even Sylvia Sandoval's children, whose connection to the werewolves is tenuous at best, appear on that list. [[spoiler: This in turn leads to a bloody PapaWolf moment from Adam.]]

** In ''Night Broken'', Mercy's [[spoiler:brother]] asks her how many times he's tried to kill her. She has to really think about it and isn't entirely happy with the answer.

* ThisMeansWar: [[spoiler:In ''Fair Game'', the son of a United States senator is directly involved in kidnapping the daughter of one of the Gray Lords, torturing her to the point of permanent crippling, and would have added her to [[SerialKiller a long list of murdered victims]]--but he is acquitted, thanks to his defense team playing up the "scariness" of the victims, [[WhatMeasureIsANonhuman who were all supernaturals]]. The girl's father appears outside the courthouse with the Wild Hunt and declares that as this verdict has clearly shown that the United States doesn't consider the fey to be people, the fey are now at war with them. He then [[OffWithHisHead decapitates]] the murderer and orders all fey in the US to retreat into their reservations]].

* [[HideYourLesbians Hide Your Gays]]: Subverted. Warren, Adam's third, is gay, and is a {{Badass}} even by Werewolf standards because he's had to fight off werewolves who think him unfit to be part of any pack because of his orientation. It's strongly implied that if he wasn't gay, he'd be Adam's second, above Darryl.
