Added DiffLines:

* GenerationalMagicDecline: The fact that fewer and fewer Allomancers are being born is of great concern, and even those being born aren't as powerful as they once were. Mistborn are even rarer.

* BotheringByTheBook: [=OreSeur=] [[spoiler: and [=TenSoon=]]] are masters of this. Seems to be a rather common kandra trait, actually.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Multiple examples across the whole trilogy, thanks to the GambitPileup going on. [[spoiler:It finally turns out that, from start to everything leading up to the end, the entire series, including the post-apocalyptic setting, was the result of good people trying to do good things and getting screwed over.]]

** Also downplayed, possibly to the point of self-contradiction. Ironpulling and Steelpushing are constantly said to to be related to the users weight and their weight alone. If they try Pushing/Pulling something heavier than they are, they move instead of the object. As early as the first book, Kelsier notes to Vin that getting into a Steelpushing contest with someone heavier than you are (and Kelsier is heavier than Vin) is a quick way to lose, but then almost immediately turns around and notes that Vin's Pushes and Pulls are far more powerful than he'd expected. [[spoiler: Later, when Elend becomes Mistborn through eating a bead of Lerasium, Vin notes that his Allomancy is ''far'' more powerful than hers, and it's implied his Pushes and Pulls move a lot more than just his weight. Makes some amount of sense, since his Allomancy is more "concentrated,"]] but still puts a small logic hole in an otherwise extremely well-thought-out and self-consistent magic system.

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=], ''Literature/MistbornSecretHistory'', 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.

* UnderhandedHero: The plot to overthrow the EvilOverlord is basically a combination heist/scam by a talented elite thieving crew with the army only intended to be backup.

* WorthyOpponent: Elend and Yomen view each other as worthy ''intellectual'' opponents. Elend frequently laments that the two are on opposite sides, fantasizing about the great intellectual debates they could have had. Though, had the Lord Ruler still been in power, those debates would have ended with Yomen having Elend executed as a heretic.

The religions he'd spent his live memorizing and preaching, which he had recently dismissed as all false, all contain different "blueprints" which allow him to restore everything to the way it was before the Lord Ruler mucked it up.]]

** Between books 2 and 3, Spook has constantly been keeping his tin up, even "flaring" it most of the time, enhancing his senses to well-above superhuman levels. His eyesight is so sharp he has to wear a blindfold in anything but complete darkness to avoid being painfully blinded by light, and his senses of hearing and touch are so keen he can react to things almost before they happen. Then he gets the bright idea to stand up to "The Citizen's" evil regime, taking on a vigilante persona using twin dueling canes, eyes covered, and fighting off lots of thugs (and Thugs), especially after [[spoiler: he himself can burn pewter, as well.]] Yes, Spook essentially becomes {{ComicBooks/Daredevil}}.
