* DiscOneFinalBoss: Antrax. It's got all the powers, abilities, and threat value of a genuine BigBad, but isn't TheBigBad of the story.

* SavageWolves: The caulls, which were reshaped by The Ilse Witch and The Morgawr into twisted {{Super Persistent Predator}}s modelled on the [[TheWishsongOfShannara Jachyras]]. The one the Ilse Witch creates is especially bad and continues to mutate long after she is done with it, eventually coming after her in revenge for what was done to it. It's powerful enough to kill [[spoiler:Truls Rohk]].

Added DiffLines:
* AppropriatedAppelation: Antrax isn't its original designation, but a name - itself from a corrupted form of English - given at some point by wanderers in the distant past.

Added DiffLines:
* ExactWords: Antrax has been following its final programmed orders to protect the data it contains, no matter the cost. And it's been doing so, with horrific results.

Added DiffLines:
* SupervillainLair[=/=]EldritchLocation: What Castledown comes across for the main characters, given how it was originally designed to house Antrax and subsequently modified by the supercomputer over the generations.

I never took that to mean that Ryer Ord Star had committed suicide, but that her final scene was her just giving up the struggle and dying from the damages of her torture
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler: Ryer Ord Star]], following capture and torture by The Morgawr and Cree Bega. The turnkey from the opening of ''Morgawr'' also kills himself after bearing witness to the titular character's atrocities.

The first mate of the ''Black Moclips'' does the same, as soon as he sees what the Morgawr does to his captain. The Morgawr's power has the tendency to do this.

* AntagonistTitle: Each book is named for its main threat.

* BigBad: [[DarkMagicalGirl The Ilse Witch]], [[KnightTemplar Antrax]], and The Morgawr all compete for this title, and each one is definitely the main antagonist of their respective novel. The Morgawr is closest in a story sense though.

Big Badass Wolf is no longer a trope. It has been replaced with an index for Wolf Tropes. Dark Magical Girl is about more than females with magic and Shoot The Shaggy Dog requires that the heroes all die.

The one the Ilse Witch creates is especially bad and continues to mutate long after she is done with it, eventually coming after her in revenge for what was done to it. It's badass enough to kill [[spoiler:Truls Rohk]].

* DarkMagicalGirl: The Ilse Witch, though nastier than many.

* ShaggyDogStory/ ShootTheShaggyDogStory: The books of magic and science are revealed to have been computer discs, unusable by anyone with the series's current technology levels. Admittedly, Antrax is destroyed, and [[spoiler: Grianne pulls a HeelFaceTurn]], but was it really worth all that?

* DarkerAndEdgier: Hell yes! ''[[Literature/TheHeritageOfShannara Heritage]]'' was dark enough, but ''Voyage'' is in a class of its own. For those who are interested, as Brooks' writing goes, it's roughly comparable to ''Literature/TheWordAndTheVoid''.

* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: [[TheDragon Cree Bega]]'s [[LizardFolk Mwellrets]], and the reptilian [[BigBad Morgawr]] himself, are among the most evil characters to come out of Brooks' work. And then there's the [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs Graak]], the only creature to frighten [[TheCaptain Redden]] [[BadAss Alt Mer]] out of his mind.
