* AntiHero: Apropos. * AxeCrazy: Entipy, who may have burned down a convent. * BifurcatedWeapon: Apropos' staff can split into two batons, amongst other tricks. * BornLucky: Used straight and inverted. * BrotherSisterIncest: Unknowingly. ''Really'' Unknowingly. * ByronicHero: Apropos. * ButtMonkey: Apropos again. Many of the horrors and indignities he is subjected to are the result of LaserGuidedKarma; everybody else got away with something, but the ''one'' time he cheated, he got caught and got screwed. Many more are completely out of the blue. * ChildByRape: Apropos yet again. His lame leg is a key to figuring out that [[spoiler:The King's jester]] is his father.

* DeadpanSnarker: Now, we can't keep seeing the same hands every time... * DeathSeeker: Sir Umbrage * {{Deconstruction}}: Exploring the role of the hero from the point of view of someone who's not a hero. That and slapping several high fantasy tropes in the face. * DeconstructiveParody: Some parts.

* SealedEvilInACan: The spirit of the sword in Tong Lashing. The trigger to unleash him is to say, "I don't care". When Apropos finds out [[spoiler:Veruh Wang Ho is a man]], he says the phrase over and over...cue Chinpan-shattering kaboom. To drive home the symbolism, after that he gives the sword away to a fat man carrying a little boy.
