* GenderEqualEnsemble: Most series consist of nine boys and nine girls; out of interest, a dedicated fan calculated which sex performed better. The winner, by a small margin, were [[spoiler: the girls.]]

* AnimalStereotype - Averted. Ravens are usually considered symbols of darkness and bad things. The Raven in this case is the good guy. He ''is'' a Warlord though, [[InformedAbility apparently]].

''Raven'' was notable for challenges which actually ''tested'' its 10 to 14 year old contestants. (Granted it was no ''{{Knightmare}}'' but it's the closest anyone's ever come.) The challenges faced include tests of intelligence, (puzzles and riddles), skill and agility (archery and other forms of target practice), strength (one-to-one combat -often on balance beams or platforms ''balanced on a lake''- and races) and the occasional tests which involved jumping from a great height or into freezing cold water (possibly just so the Camera Crews could have a laugh). The challengers competed until the final stage where they faced off against Nevar on what was actually an obstacle course, but you know the drill with these things, and claim the prize of "Ultimate Warrior" and their own Staff of Power (plus, you know, a holiday someplace nice.)

* GoldenSnitch - A malignant example with ''Way of the Warrior''. The contestants take it on in reverse order of rank (last place has to play first; it's based on number of lives, then number of gold rings), the first player to fail is eliminated, regardless of lives remaining. That said, the challenge [[NintendoHard has only been beaten twice in 10 seasons.]]

* ViolentGlaswegian: Kind of subverted- in that James Mackenzie isn't from Glasgow and Raven's not all that violent.

* ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself - Subverted. Satyarani tells Raven that the final warrior (Sonro?) in ''The Secret Temple'' will have to face that which ?the warrior fears most? ? and do so alone. Raven realises that she means Nevar, who Sonro in short, does not have a hope in hell against, resulting in Raven (who?s been somewhat edgy about how much the warriors have to do throughout the whole last eight episodes), finally saying ?[[ScrewDestiny screw it]].? and going in to help the last remaining warrior.
