* LoopholeAbuse: When a recurrence of an ancient cure sees the men of Ulster bedridden and unable to fight as they suffer from magic-induced birth pangs (...it's a long story... involving a horse...), the only person able to stand in the kingdom's defense is [[NoManOfWomanBorn a teenage boy who was not even born in Ulster]].

* BadassBoast: EVERYONE does this at one point or another. Medb takes the cake though, claiming (through simple multiplication) that her army alone numbers some '''40 billion'''-strong.

* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Justified and defied. Cú Chulainn's massive kill count owed much to his use of guerrilla tactics. CombatByChampion forces him out in the open and, while none of Medb's EliteMooks have a chance against him, they ''can'' wear him down with fatigue and ScratchDamage.

Queen Medb of Connacht and her husband Ailill are talking in bed one night, trying to figure out whose wealth is greater. They eventually conclude that their wealth is exactly equal except for one thing: Ailill owns a great prize bull, while Medb does not. So Medb commands the soldiers of Ireland to invade the kingdom of Ulster and steal its prized bull, Donn Cúailgne, the Brown Bull of Cooley, at any cost. This should be easy, since Ulster is under an unrelated curse that keeps the grown Ulstermen from fighting, and thus Ulster stands nearly defenseless before her army. Medb is thus opposed only by sixteen-year-old hero Cú Chulainn. Of course, Cú Chulainn is a ''hero'' in the classical sense, a demigod of amazing prowess, and the ensuing fight is ''epic'', including several gods and a good deal of magic.
