* DoesNotLikeMen: Drow society is based on men being labeled inferior sex-objects, slaves, and victims to female aggression. It avoids UnfortunateImplications because everywhere else has men and women as equal and the strong undercurrent men doing the same would be equally horrible.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Drizzt was listed as a 16th level Ranger which in the extremely high-powered realms is impressive but not really "the greatest ever." Which is often how he's depicted in the novels. [[WordOfGod Ed Greenwood]] overruled Bob Salvatore by listing Drizzt and Artemis as amongst the top ten best swordsmen in the realms, all of whom are Epic Level.

Added DiffLines:

** It should also be noted that there's no indication Salvatore had anything to do with the official game stats of Drizzt or any other characters he writes. Drizzt's scimitar Twinkle is repeatedly characterized as a "defending" scimitar in the stats even though Salvatore has never alluded to this in any novel.

*** At least not in the [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons 3rd edition rules]]. [[PowerCreep]] occurred quite a bit with various monsters between editions, and in the 2nd edition era Drizzt's odds really aren't that terrible against a balor.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Played with as Drizzt comes from such a race but has difficulty seeing humanoids as people. Later, he gets better.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Zigzagged in general.
**
Played with as for Drizzt himself; he comes from such a race but is good, and although he initially has difficulty seeing other humanoids as people. Later, people, eventually he gets better.


Added DiffLines:

** Played distressingly straight in the "Companions Codex", where not only do the Orcs of Many-Arrows go on the warpath once again, in the first novel, Cattie-Brie claims to have received a message from Mielikki that goblinkin essentially ''don't have souls'' and can't ''ever'' hope for redemption, making the founding of Many-Arrows a great mistake on Drizzt's part. Slightly subverted, though; Drizzt cannot bring himself to believe that this is true (and it's subtly implied that it just may be a lie sent to Cattie-Brie by Lolth to corrupt Drizzt), and it's noted that the Orcs only went on the warpath when a "traditionalist", named Hartusk, usurped the throne from Obould's descendent Lorgru.
*** Lorgru himself is an aversion; like Obould, he believes that peace is better for the orcs than war was, he has an honorable side that compelled him to spare the life of an elven warrior (something that Hartusk used to help muster the support to overthrow him), and once helped back to the throne, he immediately forces the orcs to call off their war and return to peace.
