* OffWithHisHead: This tends to happen every time Merlin gets in a sword fight. Witnesses (Many of whom end up getting the same treatment a few seconds later) tend to be very impressed by his ability to do this, which is only possible because he has SuperStrength and an AbsurdlySharpBlade.

* BatterUp: Some of the Sword of Schueler rioters learn the hard way that you shouldn't harass the family of a former pro ball player while he's carrying his lucky bat.

* IHaveManyNames:
** Ahbraim Zhevons and Dialydd Mab are the most prominent, but Merlin has developed a significant number of ''seijins'' to run errands and perform tasks Merlin can not. He's lamented more than once at need for some kind of chart to keep track of them all.
** Aivah Pahrsahn, a.k.a. Nynian Rychtair, a.k.a. Ahnzhelyk Phonda. The woman has a large range of identities to hide herself as well as maintain assets and holdings without anything being traced to her.

** Thanks to the relationship between them and Charis, [[spoiler:Corisande may be a better fit for Ireland, especially considering the resentment they have for Charis after being conquered.]]Then again...[[spoiler: Corisande might be a counterpart for France, which frequently warred with England until the end of the Napoleonic Wars. Like Corisande, France has been conquered by England and Salic law prohibited women from becoming queens regnant just as Princess Iris cannot inherit her father's throne.]]

* VoteEarlyVoteOften: Many people find it very interesting that the person in charge of validating the vote count in the election that made Zaspahr Clyntahn Grand Inquisitor instead of Samyl Wylsynn was the man who would become Clyntahn's second in command. But given that this happened before the start of the main story, the reader never sees anything that would prove or disprove the speculation that Rayno rigged the election. Even if he did, any evidence proving this would likely have been long since destroyed.

** Charis as England and Emerald as Ireland are only a couple of examples. Merlin himself makes the comparison to 17th or 18th England or Holland for Charis, and the audio books' narrator reads Emeraldian dialogue with an Irish accent.

* SchizoTech: Charis is beginning to approach this, as it starts being forced to skip over or work around holes in its technological progression to avoid triggering the Rakurai array.

* NumberTwo: Langhorne had two: Chihiro was the author of Holy Writ and his chief administrator while Bedard was responisble for keeping colonists in the dark.

to:

** In ''Hell's Foundations Quiver'', Clyntahn's insistence that the Army of God's troops not give ''any'' ground, no matter how practical the reason, essentially makes Charis and Siddarmark's jobs significantly easier since it forces the [=AoG=] to defend positions that are far less defensible than other places they could go or maintain position on the wrong end of a cut supply chain. Magwair even flat out ''tells'' Clyntahn that his threat to have the Inquisition take direct control of the jihad would doom everything they've worked for, but Clyntahn's zealotry means he may well do it anyway, damn the consequences, if he thinks Magwair and Ducharin aren't doing their respective jobs to win the war.

** Siddarmark has ''some'' similarities to the United States, especially as of ''Midst Toil and Tribulation.'' Specifically it can be compared to Civil War era America. Also the fact that it's the first and only Republic on Safehold.
