* TokenMinority: Chase is portrayed by a Maori actor, along with his family and many minor characters. On a lesser note, we see a single black Mord'Sith, the rest being white (in the books, they all were).

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: In the books, Darken Rahl is heavily scarred on half of his body (due to Zedd's Wizard's Fire). Here he's unblemished, making for more tasteful {{shirtless scene}}s.



* LoveMakesYouEvil: Kieran, a previous Seeker, went mad with grief and started killing innocent people after his wizard had persuaded his Confessor lover Viviane to kill herself so he would be freed from Confession to her (which happened when the pair had sex), forcing his wizard to kill him with his own sword and trap his spirit in his remains as he threatened to wreak havoc in the afterlife unless he was reunited with Viviane. Worse, he possessed Richard's body and got Viviane's spirit to possess Kahlan's, obviously not caring what either of them thought.

** The Keeper was originally the Creator's lover at the beginning of time, but he grew jealous over the gifts that she gave their children, human beings, including immortality. So he made all of them mortal and introduced suffering to spite her.


Added DiffLines:

* MissingMom: Darken Rahl's mother never appears, though his father mentioned "the queen" one time in a flashback. It isn't clear if she died prior to the events of the series.

* PsychicAssistedSuicide: Anyone [[{{Brainwashed}} confessed]] can be ordered to off themselves. While this normally doesn't happen (though we see Kahlan order one murderer to do this), a variant happens in the first season, where Kahlan, who is herself controlled by Richard with the power of Orden, confesses four Mord-Sith and orders them to kill each other. They do so in unison. Richard also orders some D'Haran soldiers to do this with the same means.

* WorkplaceAcquiredAbilities: Richard's experience as a woodsman comes in handy on a number of occasions, such as being able to track which horse Annabelle and Fynn took because the tracks were deeper. Exploited in one episode where this is used against him, when [[spoiler:a murderer framed a man by leaving seeds from a particular area beside the body of a murder victim, knowing Richard would recognize them and implicate the man that lived near where they were found.]]

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: It's unclear if Maya really was the Creator's human incarnation or not, though Kahlan believes that she is.

Added DiffLines:

* GodOfEvil: The Creator, who has made all life and light. Unlike in the books, this deity is portrayed as female.

* RhymesOnADime: All women are expected to do this in the presence of the Margrave. Cara has trouble with it at first, then spontaneously composes a whole poem [[CrossesTheLineTwice about torturing and killing a slave]]. The Margrave's sister impressively manages one while sobbing at the top of her lungs.

Added DiffLines:

* TheUnfavourite: The series gives Zedd a younger brother, Thaddicus, like this. It's mostly because he can't do magic, unlike Zedd, as their father was also a great wizard. Their mother doted on Zedd too though-Thaddicus is resentful of the fact that while on her deathbed, it's Zedd she kept asking to see, even though he was caring for her at the time. He spitefully claims to have given away their most treasured possession in revenge, however Thaddicus relents after Zedd tells him how important it is. Slowly their relationship improves over the course of the series.

* {{Brainwashed}}: Everyone subject to Confession turns into a completely devoted slave of the Confessor. This is only broken with the Confessor's death (in the books, it's ''permanent'', and Confessed people die of despair if they witness the Confessor dying).

* FountainOfYouth: Zedd is turned into a young man by [[spoiler:Shota]] in "Wizard", so that he can do her bidding. Doesn't work out as intended, when it all goes to his head. Both Zedd and [[spoiler:Shota]] can make anyone, including themselves, young, which means that they can live forever if they wished. Shota appears to make use of this power, as she's implied to be Zedd's age at least, while Zedd does not.

** Late in season two, he draws Cara into a trap by lying to her that the son she bore him years ago is in danger. Cara takes his betrayal philosophically, because at least it means her child is safe... and then Rahl cases ully informs her that [[spoiler: he had their son killed the same day he was born, so that he wouldn't pose a threat to Rahl's not-even-conceived-yet rightful heir.]] If we didn't know before that that Rahl was a complete and utter bastard...

* ForgotAboutHisPowers: Zedd, as {{lampshaded}} by Flynn, who says them seem inconsistent. There are many times when turning invisible or just burning an enemy would be very useful, but he doesn't.
