Really, one of the more interesting aspect of how this story is written is that the framing device for Kvothe's story has a story going on in the background, and that the series opens in such a way that leads you to believe that THAT is the main story.
* ShowWithinAShow: A main theme. The books tell the story of Chronicler recording Kvothe's story, which contains many, many stories. They often provide {{Infodump}}s on the history of the world.

* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Kvothe certainly thinks so. Indeed, he feels so strongly on the subject that even when he's been alchemically rendered unable to feel or even comprehend moral restraint, he instinctively knows that he mustn't rape anyone, in the same way he knows he mustn't try to eat a rock.

Misuse. It's Genre Savvy, not just "savvy".
* {{Deconstruction}}: Kvothe deconstructs the MarySue protagonists that the fantasy genre is just lousy with; he was TheAce as a kid. Yet this sets him up for several [[FatalFlaw flaws]], [[{{Pride}} being too arrogant,]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge full of hatred]] and impatience because he's TheAce [[GenreSavvy and knows it.]] [[ForegoneConclusion And we already know]] [[BrokenAce that he broke under the weight of his actions and the standards he set for himself]].

** Kvothe says the name "Auri" means sunny, but can't think in what language. "auri-" is prefix form of the word for gold in Latin and the given name "Ari" means "sun-like" in the Dravidian language Badaga.
