** TheEgo= Bruenor: Almost as proud and hot-headed as Wulfgar, but far more seasoned and experienced, keeps the balance.

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: Artemis Entreri, who beats Catti-Brie and threatens her with death in order to ensure her cooperation, cuts off two of Regis' fingers, and leaves them behind as "gifts" for Drizzt in order to further goad the drow into a fight to the death, murders a ship full of people and burns the captain alive ForTheEvulz...and by the end of the story, he's still alive, not seriously injured, and capable of causing more mayhem, death, and suffering later on. So Entreri escapes karma...at least in ''this'' trilogy...]]

* {{Ungrateful Bastard}}s: The people of Ten-Towns who Drizzt protects and saved the lives of more than once and has never once offered them harm. Despite all of the good he has done to save them, such as besting the Barbarian King to end the attack (Though this got him the gratitude of one of the towns), his wounded body was kicked and tormented by one of the major leaders. PLus he is the primary reason that Akar Kessell was even defeated at all, since he managed to destroy Crystal-Tirith and cause Akar Kessell to get himself killed.

** Beorg's fellow king Heafstaag is a cruel, hateful bastard, but even he is disgusted at the way Akar Kessell makes several brainwashed women his playthings.

* GeneralFailure: In "The Crystal Shard", Akar Kessel might have conquered the world if he didn't shoot himself in the foot more than once. In the end, the titular artifact stops responding to his commands and lets itself get buried in an avalanche because it's tired of watching him screw things up and wants a more worthy wielder.

* TheWorfEffect: Happens to ''Drizzt'', of all people, when he fights King Heafstaag, one of the leaders of the barbarians' invasion of Ten Towns. Drizzt seriously injures Heafstaag, but realizes that Heafstaag will recover. Heafstaag himself nearly kills Drizzt, and leaves the drow helpless on the field. The bigoted Ten Towns leader Kemp and one of his thugs find Drizzt and are about to finish the job when Bruenor luckily interferes.

* {{Badass}}: Among badasses: The companions of the hall are all badasses, but Drizzt makes them seem normal, especially after his battle with Errtu. The same can be said about Entreri.

* HospitalSurprise: In ''The Crystal Shard'', Drizzt is called to Bruenor's bedside after the final battle. He assures his mortally wounded friend that he will look for Bruenor's homeland in the spring. Bruenor then reveals that he isn't that badly hurt, he was just trying to force Drizzt to set a starting date for their perpetually delayed quest to find Mithral Hall in the presence of witnesses.

->''"I would gladly teach him. I would revel in his successes as much as my own, but I would demand, I would always demand, a sense of humility, dedication, and an understanding of this power I was teaching, an appreciation of the potential for destruction. I would teach no one who did not continue to display an appropriate level of compassion and community. To learn how to use a sword, one must first master ''when'' to use a sword."''

''The Icewind Dale Trilogy'' is the first [[Literature/TheLegendOfDrizzt]] trilogy of books by R.A. Salvatore written in the ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' setting. Although originally intended to focus primarily on the barbarian Wulfgar, by the end of the third book it has shifted to a character who was originally meant to be Wulfgar's mentor/sidekick: the ChaoticGood dark elf ranger [[BreakoutCharacter Drizzt Do'Urden]]. Drizzt became so popular that he would [[Literature/TheDarkElfTrilogy get his own prequel series of books]] and would become the star of pretty much every novel in the series set afterwards. This trilogy also introduces Drizzt and Wulfgar's friends: the dwarf king Bruenor Battlehammer, his adopted human daughter Catti-Brie, and the halfling Regis.
