* SleepsWithBothEyesOpen: Wizards sleep with their eyes open.

* SleepsWithBothEyesOpen: Wizards sleep with their eyes open. We first see it with Zedd in ''Wizard's First Rule'', then in ''Stone of Tears'', it serves as another piece of proof that Richard has the gift.



* SupernaturallyYoungParent: In "Blood of the Fold", it is mentioned that Verna used to have a daughter who died of old age decades ago. Apparently, if a wizard or a sorceress in the Palace had a MuggleBornOfMages, he or she was given up for adoption.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Nicci. She intentionally invokes or defies several tropes, such as when she [[spoiler: kidnapped Richard by exploiting his love for Kahlan]], or when [[spoiler: she warned Jagang against NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast and advised him to take the title "Jagang the Just."]] She also intentionally studies Richard's previous captors so she can avoid their mistakes.

* CessationOfExistence: Due to the chimes' starting to destroy magic in ''Faith of the Fallen'', its later revealed that the underworld (being magical) was destroyed, with there no longer being an afterlife. Thus, now people who die simply stop existing. This is just fine, according to the protagonists.

* BlondesAreEvil:
** The Mord-Sith, and Nicci. [[spoiler: Subverted when the Mord-Sith become Richard's allies and Nicci pulls a HighHeelFaceTurn.]]
** Extended to pretty much all of the D'Haran forces, since [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything blond hair and blue eyes are the mark of a "pure" D'Haran bloodline]] and [[spoiler:under Richard, they become the good guys.]]

* WriterOnBoard: The series began as a typical sword and sorcery series, but becomes increasingly a vessel for the author to express his [[UsefulNotes/Objectivism Objectivist]] beliefs. For example, the central struggle in ''Faith of the Fallen'' is between free market capitalism and socialism. The main character Richard delivers a number of {{Author Tract}}s in which he states Goodkind's Objectivist opinions, which often contradict views the character expressed earlier in the series—or even the story's reality itself, such as claiming that belief in the afterlife is unfounded, [[FlatEarthAtheist when Richard has been there and back himself]].
