* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Mistborn wear special Mistcloaks to identify themselves as such, and the cloaks are designed to conceal them and their identities in the mists. Which nobles are full Mistborn is a carefully guarded secret by the noble houses, and the Mistborn attend all the balls and parties expected of them as nobles, but also prowl the city at night, doing whatever they can to advance their family's fortunes. In particular, several key scenes have Vin and/or Kelsier retrieving or stashing their Mistcloaks before/after being out and about doing their Mistborn business. And Mistborn powers give them super strength, speed, senses, and reflexes, along with telekinetic and psychic powers. Yeah, they're basically high fantasy {{Superheroes}}.

* AchievementsInIgnorance: Seems to be where a lot of Vin's Allomantic power comes from. Even though the rules were laid out for her by Kelsier, she has no problem trying to break them just to see if the rules aren't as steadfast as he thinks. Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn't. Notably, [[spoiler: she tries combining Allomancy and Feruchemy by burning a metal Sazed had stored some strength in, to see if she could tap into it. While it doesn't work, Sazed compliments her on a well-thought-out experiment.]]



* DoomedMoralVictor: [[spoiler:Kelsier]], deliberately and effectively.

* InnocentFanserviceGirl: After Vin performs her UpToEleven ActionDressRip, she returns to the hideout only in her underwear, much to the consternation of the rest of the crew, especially the young man with a hopeless crush on her. Vin doesn't understand why everyone keeps telling her to cover up, since the underwear isn't much more revealing than other outfits she's worn in the past. Dockson has to explain to her that it doesn't matter how revealing or concealing underwear is, but the fact that it is underwear is what makes it awkward.

Part HeroicFantasy, part [[TheCon heist novel]], ''Mistborn: The Final Empire'' is the first novel in Creator/BrandonSanderson's ''Mistborn'' trilogy. It was followed by ''The Well of Ascension'' and ''The Hero of Ages'', dealing with the return of the Deepness and the ramifications of bringing down a thousand-year empire. There is also a sidestory [=eBook=], ''Mistborn: Secret History'', which details [[spoiler:Kelsier's afterlife and how his ghost continues to influence the story after his death]]. Note that this sidestory is full of spoilers, to the point that the author suggests that people not read it until finishing the original trilogy, and possibly the first three books of the SequelSeries as well, on the first page.

* ArcNumber: The importance of sixteen is explained: There are a total of sixteen shards. They were once sixteen men who managed to murder God and each took on one aspect of his nature.
* BatmanGambit: Kelsier tells Spook the secret of how to tell if someone is influenced by Ruin and how to send a message that Ruin can't alter, and then asks him to pass the message to Vin. Ruin has Marsh intercept the message, but Kelsier was counting on that. He knew that he could trust his brother to do the right thing and break free of Ruin's control long enough to remove Vin's spike once he knew of it's true significance.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: The first thing Kelsier does upon meeting the ghost of Preservation is punch him in the face. When Ruin arrives in the afterlife, he punches him, too.
* GodIsInept: Preservation openly admits that the only qualification any of the Shards had for godhood was being able to kill the previous holder of the job.
