* CurbStompBattle: The confrontation between Arslan and Silvermask in chapter 39 had Silvermask dominating the entire fight, easily breaking Arslan's sword and almost cutting off Arslan's hand.



* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In chapter 39, in a moment of panic, Bahman [[spoiler: stopped Kishward and the others from killing Hermes by declaring if they did, they would extinguish the rightful line of Pars]] while in front of Arslan, shattering the poor boy's world. This also allowed Silvermask to escape in the confusion. Narsus was rightfully furious, thinking to himself [[OOCISSeriousBusiness that he should have cut Bahman down]].

*** During Arslan's stint in trying to build up an army in Gilan, [[spoiler: Graze]] serves as a ''seventh Ranger'' of sorts, [[spoiler: Jaswant]] being a more permanent member of the entourage at this point.



* FatherNeptune: The mercantile ship captain Graze (who serves as Arslan's major ally during his stay in Gilan) hits most of the tropes--despite being mostly on the young side and his beard really more like mutton chops.

* FrameUp: The second season sees Guiscard trying to remove his brother King Innocentius VII from the picture (having been nothing but a hindrance so far)--first by imprisoning him, then trying to assassinate him. He manipulates events in order to frame both Etoile and the Maryami princess Irina for the assassination (which failed anyway)--[[GoneHorriblyWrong leading to]] [[EnemyCivilWar Hirmes breaking ranks with Guiscard and Etoile choosing to appeal to Arslan]] to dislodge Guiscard and Lusitania once and for all.

* LivingShadow: The mysterious horde of warlocks aiding Hirmes (who claim to have been on familiar terms with the late Parsian king Gotarzes II) fight like this most of the time.

** Andragoras furiously demotes Daryun at his suggestion that the army could be walking into a trap. He then harshly calls out his own son Arslan for arriving on the scne without being summoned.

** Andragoras furiously demotes Daryun at his suggestion that the army could be walking into a trap. He then harshly calls out his own son Arslan for arriving on the scne scene without being summoned.



** Narsus had this reputation at Andragoras's court, being the first (and so far, ''only'') Parsian noble to [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil free all his slaves]]--[[ValuesDissonance whose labor serves as the economic backbone of Pars]]. Thus, he is a source of unease to the traditional Parsian nobles who flocked to Arslan's standard. Hence, despite having served for almost the entire season as Arslan's ''de facto'' chancellor, he eventually chose to hand over the position of First Chancellor (for now) to the newcomer-but-most senior Lord Lucian. ([[ExactWords After all, his]] [[AlmightyJanitor "official commission" from Arslan is "Court Painter"]].)
** This is also arguably the cause of [[spoiler: [[PutOnaBus Gieve's "exile"]]]] With Arslan's army slowly becoming more "formalized" and staffed with the traditional Parsian nobility, the [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits loose nature of his in-exile inner circle]], despite having proven themselves as TrueCompanions, needed to be integrated in this formal command.[[note]]As is, Daryun's position as general is a given; Narsus remains an in-house strategist, just not the most prominent (with Elam and Arfrid, despite her being from a bandit clan, functioning as his lieutenants), Farangis's position as a priestess of Mithra grants his army religious legitimacy, and Jaswant, being a representative of the Shindran alliance, gives him diplomatic immunity.[[/note]] Gieve, as it is, is too much of a loose cannon which does not fit into the chain of command. [[spoiler: Of course, it eventually appeared that Gieve was sent on a secret mission to secure "something" which will legitimize Arslan's claim to a throne--which is virtually intelligence work.]]

* SidequestSidestory: The arc of Hirmes's faction for Season 2 was securing the treasured sword Rukhnabad (owned by the Parsian founder Kai Khosrow) in order to symbolically assert Hirmes's rightful lineage. At best, it does not advance the plot any further other than a) digging into [[FlashBack the circumstances leading to]] Hirmes's current vengeful nature, and b) causing further problems for Lusitania through allowing Hirmes to dismantle the Temple Knights and achieve homebase in Maryam through rescuing [[ChildhoodFriend Princess Irina]].
