* ForgottenPhlebotinum: Kvothe learns a mental technique called Heart of Stone, which eliminates the users emotional response and let's them "sit at the funeral of their sister and feel nothing". He then doesn't use it ever in the following three years he spends trying to cope with emotional trauma while living on the streets. This is justified by Kvothe saying that he had blocked out large parts of his memories due to trauma, including much of his training with Abenthy, and that much of his analytical mind was "sleeping".

aversion
* AutomatonHorse: Averted. Kvothe specifically chooses a breed of horse known for endurance, and starts slow to avoid riding the horse into the ground. He also takes great pains to explain that people who start their journeys at a dead run and then complain that someone sold them a lame horse are idiots and bastards.

Conflict between the Automaton Horse entry on this page and the trope page - trope page correctly identifies it as an aversion.
* AutomatonHorse: Kvothe buys a horse that he intends to ride for seventy miles uphill. No one, including the horse dealer, points out how ridiculous this is. Made more egregious by the fact that Kvothe digresses specifically to emphasize how much of an expert in horseflesh he is.

* UnreliableNarrator: Kvothe is called out on this by Bast, in the middle of the story no less, telling his master that all the women in his story are beautiful when in fact, that's impossible to happen. Bast even remarks that Denna had a crooked nose.

** A character at the Arcanum using "thaums" as a unit of measurement (for heat in this story) might be a reference to ''Literature/{{Discworld}}''. ** At one point, a girl begging for a story about "the dry lands over the Stormwal, with sand snakes and dry men who drink blood" sounds like a reference to ''Franchise/{{Dune}}''.
