* DisproportionateRetribution: In the comic, Hopecross Jilly, the titular fae would attack and devour the fingers and toes of children who behaved badly. If that wasn't bad enough, she would bury them alive (while still missing their parts) and dance over their burial ground. Yikes. [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Hopecross Jilly also ended up HoistByHerOwnPetard by this]]: she kept trying to find a reason to go after Adam's daughter Jesse and ended up burned to death as even by Medieval standards of children's behavior (and the Fae), Jesse is a good girl.

* ChildEater: The comic series "Hopecross Jilly" introduces the titular Fae who craved naughty children in particular. While she wouldn't eat naughty children whole, she would eat only their fingers and toes because it was "the parts that got them into mischief to begin with."

* ButtMonkey: It's sad to admit, but Mercy herself pretty much falls under this. The number of times she ends up hurt, injured, kidnapped, and more are endless. It's played straight for the most part however, but Mercy always ends up on the short end of the stick. It's made worse since she lacks the healing factor that the werewolves have.

** 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.

* 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]].
