* AluminumChristmasTrees: Fittingly, the high value of Aluminum. In the series it's a precious commodity, while in the modern world it's little more then [[WorthlessYellowRocks worthless shiny foil]]. However, Aluminum was actually highly valued in the past, before better smelting techniques were invented. And due to it's AntiMagic properties, in this world it has an ''extremely'' practical use in addition to its rarity.

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: the Roughs are an equivalent of 19th century TheWildWest: small towns inhabited by people who've had enough of city life (and laws of civilized societies), lawkeepers wearing dusters and hats who hunt bandits for bounties, and savage koloss as a fantasy equivalent of Native American tribes.

* LiquidAssets: feruchemical abilities work on a basis of this. Store a liquid asset you don't want and use it later. This can allow saving up healing by staying constantly sick to use it when badly wounded, or storing weight to make yourself light to expand it later to become extremely heavy.
* MagicAIsMagicA: as with the original Mistborn the magic is very clearly defined. Each Allomantic or Feruchemical effect is very clearly defined and functions the same always. What metals can be burned by individuals is clearly defined. The only unique variation to this [[spoiler: Miles ability to burn gold to heal due to his possessing both gold Allomancy and gold Feruchemy which compound off of each other]] is treated as a simple unique effect of two abilities feeding off of each other, [[NewRulesAsThePlotDemands and was always part of the world, if not mentioned before]] - mostly because apart from the Lord Ruler himself there were no people combining these two types of abilities.
