* FantasyContraception: Zedd claims to have used "magical protection" while having sex with a woman in the past, so he couldn't be the father of her son. When pressed though, he admits to not having used it every time. The woman also had sex with another man around the same time. Kahlan eventually concludes he isn't the father after all.

*** It's possibly not as bad as it seems though. IIRC, he was headed to the Valley of Light, and one of the people living there is the Listener from Season 1 (See below). As soon as the Listener takes one look at the Baneling kid, the jig will be up, so the rest of the inhabitants are probably safe.

* IAmNotYourFather: After Ren asks how his father could sell him to the D'Harans, this is the response he gets. It seems he only married Ren's mother (though were not told why-perhaps he was promised a high dowry as a bribe to cover up her extramarital pregnancy).

** The Sisters of the Dark. Every time they show up, Richard and company end up slaying at least a half dozen of them, and that they actually wear red dresses makes it even worse. This is particularly {{egregious}} considering that in the books, the Sisters of the Dark were some of the most powerful, intelligent, and dangerous of the Keeper's servants, and even one was considered to be a critical threat.

* VoluntaryShapeshifting: It turns out that both Shota and Zedd can make their bodies young again. Only Shota is vain enough to do this all the time. Zedd only does when he's bewitched by her. When her magic is taken, she's revealed to be old like him.

* 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.
