* OurAngelsAreDifferent: The Vorin church teaches of the Dawnsingers, kindly spren sent by the Almighty to care for humans after they were forced out of the Tranquiline Halls. In ''Oathbringer'', [[spoiler:it is revealed that the Dawnsingers were actually the parsh, the original inhabitants of Roshar, who took the humans in when the humans destroyed their own world. The humans turned on the Dawnsingers, so the Dawnsingers joined with Odium and became the Voidbringers. Because the Voidbringers are resurrected infinitely, the modern Fused are the same people who were first betrayed by the humans thousands of years ago]].

* BizarreSeasons: It's not terribly obvious, but the seasons appear in random order, and change every few week, with a string of 40 days of the same season being considered unnaturally long. There is also the month of the Weeping, with constant rain but no Highstorms where farmers usually rest.

* BattleCouple: Suggested to be the way Parshendi fight. Possibly also an appearance in one of Dalinar's visions; we see two Radiants working in tandem -- one male, one female.

* BattleCouple: Suggested to be the way The Parshendi fight.fight in "war pairs," as an extension of using what amounts to husband-and-wife teams [[note]]it's a little more complicated, since Parshendi are asexual except when they want to reproduce, for which purpose they form "mate pairs," but the same malen and femalen tend to stick together as a pair and change purpose together throughout their lives - thus, a war pair are not sexual partners, but they likely either have been in the past or will be in the future[[/note]] for just about all purposes. Possibly also an appearance in one of Dalinar's visions; we see two Radiants working in tandem -- one male, one female.

* FantasticCasteSystem: The Parshendi can shift between a variety of different forms, each of which has its own strengths and weaknesses. Warform is the one we usually see them in, making them big and strong and causing them to grow an armored carapace. Workform is similar to warform, but without the armor and with a mental block against conflict. Mateform is used for reproduction, while nimbleform is generally dexterous and quick. Finally, we have dullform, a baseline form with no distinguishing properties, and slaveform, the mindless state that most parshmen exist in. [[spoiler: There's also Stormform, one of their Voidbringer forms, which turns them into hate-filled killing machines that can generate lightning and in large groups can summon an Everstorm.]]

** The Parshendi race has shades of this. We know their bones are red, their skin is marbled red-and-black, their blood is orange and smells moldy, and they grow their armor as part of their bodies. It turns out that they're actually shapeshifters, and originally were capable of assuming hundreds of different forms, though many of those forms were as [[spoiler: Voidbringers]]. And it's even implied in their legends that they may ''literally'' be aliens, though the stories are unclear.

* AlienBlood: Parshendi have orange blood that smells like mold. It's described identically to the blood of [[BigCreepyCrawlies chasmfiends]], though if there is any connection it hasn't been explained yet.[[spoiler:Although ''Literature/{{Oathbringer}}'' establishes that the Parshendi are native to Roshar and have [[BizarreAlienBiology gemhearts]] like the chasmfiends.]]
