* DiveUnderTheExplosion: In ''Temple of the Winds'', Kahlan and Nadine are chasing a wizard through a drainage tunnel. Once they come close, he starts launching fireballs from the other end, so they have to dive under the water and swim the rest of the way.

* {{Badass}}: Chase, Rachel(see below), Nicci, Richard/Kahlan/Zedd when they [[LetsGetDangerous get dangerous]], etc. Jagang terrifying the Sisters of the Dark into wetting themselves by his presence alone while calmly eating dinner definitely also counts.

* MeaningfulName: "Darken" Rahl, for one. Very on the nose. Halsband Island as well, where the Palace of the Prophets is on which wizards are trained using a rada'han, a collar which controls them, which is what the word halsband means in Dutch. As Richard Rahl notes, it's also a term the collar used in falconry to launch a hawk on the attack.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
