** An aversion to footwear may be the [[MagicalBarefooter general trait of those who have the gift of Listening and/or Naming]]. [[BarefootLoon Auri]] and Elodin also have a penchant for going barefoot, and Auri also refused when Kvothe offered her shoes.

* FlippingTheBird: When Kvothe is in the process of trying to connect with Tempi, the two stop at a tavern and accidentally start a bar fight. One of the patrons makes a gesture "that you didn't need to be Adem to understand", shortly before Tempi makes short work of both the patron and their crew.

Kvothe, now a young man studying at [[WizardingSchool the University]], decides to take a few terms off and travel the world after a particularly eventful month leaves him on the outs with the Masters. Armed with a letter of introduction from a noble friend, Kvothe travels to Vintas, where he becomes embroiled in [[DeadlyDecadentCourt courtly politics]], bandit attacks along the King's Road, a beguiling faerie enchantress, training from the legendary [[WarriorMonk Adem mercenaries]], and a troubling homecoming. All while trying to come to grips with his growing love for Denna, and trying to tease out information on the mysterious Chandrian, as well as [[TheKnightsTemplar the Amyr]], a band of warriors who even the Chandrian still fear, despite the Amyr supposedly being disbanded hundreds of years ago...

* CantArgueWithElves: The Adem fit this trope to a T. During the time Kvothe spends with them, there isn't a single scene where an Adem doesn't proclaim how infinitely superior they are to pretty much every other culture in the world to Kvothe, who is constantly referred as a barbarian by the Adem. Kvothe, who doesn't take shit from anybody, only occasionally tries to defend himself and his arguments are defeated every time, even when he's factually correct.

* MrFanservice: During the entire expedition in the woods of Vintas, Tempi usually wears his skin-tight mercenary reds. Except the time that he spends most of the day stripped to the waste, or the times when Kvothe and Hespa discover that the Adem have NoNudityTaboo.

* ApothecaryAlligator: Caudicus has one. It actually was his predecessor's, he admits he doesn't know why he had one, but kept it anyway. Kvothe is actually quite amused to see it.
