* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: In ''[[TheWarGods Oath of Swords]]'', while the narrator is watching Bahzell busy fighting [[spoiler:Harnak]] as [[spoiler:champion of Tomanak to Harnak's champion of Sharna]], Brandark is caught in a melee against four hradani simultaneously--and kills three of the four before going down.

** He does start using a high-draw composite bow (one that probably can't even be strung, let alone shot, by anyone less muscular than a Horse-Stealer Hradrani) after partnering up with Walsharno, as it's an easier weapon to shoot from horseback.

* WeHaveBecomeComplacent: This led to the Fall of Kontovar. Over the centuries, the Emperors stopped using the artifact that allowed them to detect dark wizards except on ceremonial occasions (it also forced the wearer to read the minds of everyone around them, which was considered an unnecessary violation of privacy), while the Council of Ottovar had too much faith in their spells to detect dark magic and didn't bother to test them. This allowed the Council of Carnadosa to subvert the regular detection spells and grow in strength until they were able to steal the crown, at which point they could act openly.

* AntiMagic: Hradani in the Rage are nearly immune to magic. Only Wencit has been seen able to consistently use magic to restrain them.

* AntiMagic: Hradani in the Rage are nearly immune to magic. Only Wencit has been seen able to consistently use magic to restrain them. [[spoiler:Most likely due to the Hradani being linked directly to the magic field, the Rage being an enhancement of that, and Wencit being a wild wizard, meaning he can control the magic field quite handily.]]

* RefusedTheCall: Bahzell. Oh, ''Bahzell''. Spends most of the first book running from it. Then gets downright {{badass}} when he accepts.

Over the centuries, the Emperors stopped using the artifact that allowed them to detect dark wizards except on ceremonial occasions (it also forced the wearer to read the minds of everyone around them, which was considered an unnecessary violation of privacy), while the Council of Ottovar took too much comfort in the fact that the Emperor's crown could detect dark wizards for them and forgot that he almost never wore it, thus never bothering to create alternate detection devices. This allowed the Council of Carnadosa to form and grow in strength until they were able to steal the crown, at which point they could act openly.

* BowsVsCrossbows: Early in ''OathOfSwords'', Rianthus "suggests" Bahzell should replace his crossbow with a standard bow. Then Bahzell shows what he can do with that crossbow (and just how fast someone much stronger than human can recock one). He keeps the crossbow.
