* TheWorfEffect: The original ''Riftwar'' trilogy establishes the Valheru as having been a race of {{Badass}}es ''par excellence''. When the demons, dread, and Dasati are introduced later, ''their'' badass-cred is established with the revelation that all defeated the Valheru (or at least fought them to a draw) in their backstory.

** A variant comes in ''Servant of the Empire'', when Mara's loyalty finally earns her the title of [[TitleDrop Servant of the Empire]]. It's absolutely a coronation, bringing her into the Imperial family.

** The same book in which the above happened had the Emperor of the Tsuranuanni appoint the head of a family which had exterminated itself by ritual suicide a century before to a post that had been quite deliberately abolished at the same time and replaced with another position with similar military duties but less political power.

** The same book in which the above happened also had a major retcon in regards to the Emperor events of the Tsuranuanni appoint Empire trilogy. In that series, every member of the head of a Minwanabi family which had exterminated itself by ritual was killed or committed suicide a century before due to an oath to the Red God having become impossible to fulfill. Mara of the Acoma broke tradition by taking control of the Minwanabi lands and servants, and due to destroying the Minwanabi her house would rise to the position of Great House. By the end of the series, Mara's son ise emperor, her daughter is heir to the Acoma, and the old Acoma estates have been given to a post loyal retainer to start his own house: House Lujan. However, in the darkwar saga, it is instead stated that had been quite deliberately abolished at the Minwanabi became '''vassals''' to the Acoma, and are somehow still around and a Great House. The Acoma estates are considered imperial property that no one has lived in since Mara's son ascended to the throne. The emperor is considered part of House Acoma (despite the Empire trilogy making a major point of Mara's son no longer being a member of that house due to rising to the throne), with no mention of Kasuma. Since these are all such major retcons that they essentially break the story of the third book in the empire trilogy, Feist later tried to reconcile them through explanations on his blog. [[ShaggyDogStory House Lujan died out quickly after it was established, its lands returning to the imperial family.]] [[ResetButton Mara restored House Minwanabi, presumably through its old retainers, and gave back their old lands.]] [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse What happened to Kasuma and House Acoma is still left unresolved though]].
** A more minor example from
the same time and replaced with another book is the fact that the emperor of Kelewan appoints someone to the position with similar military duties but less political power.of Warlord, a position that was renamed and reduced in power during the Empire Trilogy.

** Priests of various death gods tend to fall quite firmly into this category. Priests of Lims-Kragma tend to be scary, but benevolent and genuinely concerned with the emotional well-being of the bereaved. The stand-out may be the high priest of Turakamu in the ''Empire''-series, who, behind his demonic mask, is an affable, genuinely decent sort, as well as one of Mara's staunchest supporters in reforming the byzantine, honor-obbsessed Tsurani culture.
