*** Happens with Kalten as well. In the ''Elenium'', we see him swimming in the lake looking for the Bhelliom. In the ''Tamuli'', he's terrified of being under water, meaning that he needs to be [[InstantSedation drugged by the Beer of the Gods]] before being dragged through a flooded passage.

* MagicalBarefooter: Flute, a mystical child [[spoiler:and goddess]], always has bare feet. And her feet always have grass stains, even when she's been inside all day, invoking FertileFeet.

* BigBadWannabe: Annias. He's smart, and a decent {{Chessmaster}}, but his SmugSnake tendencies typically bite him in the hindquarters, and he's no match for [[DragonInChief Martel]] or the real BigBad, [[GodOfEvil Azash]]. This is actually lampshaded and justified in-series when Vanion and Ehlana both point out that Annias ''used'' to be extremely clever and competent, with only his recent schemes being obvious, pathetic, and easily abrogated. Sephrenia then explains that Azash tends to ruin his followers by influencing or outright forcing them to be more like him--and while he himself is a competent BigBad in terms of power, his ability to be clever and subtle, particularly within the bounds of the more sophisticated Elene culture, is next to nil. [[spoiler:Krager]] in the Tamuli.

* SayYourPrayers: Inverted. After killing a corrupt church soldier, Bevier leads the man's subordinates in prayers for his soul. It's an effective intimidation tactic, but given how devout Bevier is, it's entirely possible that the prayers were sincere. After all, just because you have to kill a man doesn't mean you want to send him to Hell.

* DeliberatelyCuteChild: Aphrael could well be the [[Pantheon/TropePantheons Trope Pantheon's]] goddess of Deliberately Cute Children. It turns out the child act is more or less AFormYouAreComfortableWith - and Aphrael uses it entirely so people will pick her up and give her kisses. Her true form is actually quite adult and never clearly described save for her eyes and her [[InnocentFanserviceGirl lack of clothes.]]\\

** The Elder Gods are implied to have created several races of these as servants; the only ones the reader ever meets are [[KillItWithFire the Balrog-esque Damorks]] and the [[BigCreepyCrawlies insectile]] {{Scarily Competent Tracker}}s called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Seekers]]. There are also otherworldly monsters that serve [[spoiler: Klael]] and show up in the Tamuli, but its unclear if they really qualify as "demons" or not.

** In ''The Tamuli'' this is the Atans' hat. They outclass everyone else to such an extent that entire enemy armies have surrendered rather than fight them. Mirtai demonstrates that even Church Knights are no match in dismounted combat by knocking Kalten on his ass without much effort - mounted knights would probably be more of a challenge as Atans don't seem to use polearms.
