* RedHeadedHero: Kvothe has "true red" hair, rather than than the brownish-orange that most people describe as "red hair." It's his most distinctive feature.

** During Kvothe's traveling around Trebon with Denna at the end of the first book, he makes it clear that magnetism and naturally-occurring electricity (of the electric eel variety) are both aspects of the mysterious "galvanic force", which is odd: they have no idea how electricity and magnetism work, but they know about electromagnetism?

* 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.

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]].
