* AnArmAndALeg: Most significantly, [[spoiler: Rand loses a hand]] after rushing his liaison with the Seanchan and not taking proper precautions. Given the ties to NorseMythology, it was a given this would happen to someone. His indifferent reaction to the loss is another sign of his increasingly problematic mentality. The last book also has a few cases, particularly [[spoiler: Galad]] losing a hand fighting [[spoiler: Demandred]], and [[spoiler: Aviendha]] loses some toes in a PortalCut.

* EvilTaintedThePlace: The Series provides us with the nightmarish hell hole of Shadar Logoth. The city was once a great and heroic city on the side of light but during a long war against the full onslaught of the Shadow - (Analog to the Devil), the city got a new counselor that convinced the people of the city that they had to be as dark and as hard as the Shadow to stand a chance. This attitude led quickly to the city abandoning all its allies to fend for themselves against the shadow and created an air of supreme paranoia within all its residents. The atmosphere of hatred within the city was literally so potent that it seeps into the foundations of the city. Fast Forward a thousand years or so and Shadar Logoth has become an EldritchLocation that serves as the only source of evil within the entire series on par with the Shadow.

Added DiffLines:

* FatalFireworks: Despite fireworks having been around for about a thousand years in the series, nobody has weaponized them, apparently because the Guild of Illuminators that monopolizes the technology has sought to prevent it. After Mat accidentally discovers their destructive capabilities in the third book, he occasionally uses fireworks as backup weapons, until he is able to work with a disgraced Illuminator to use her expertise to make actual cannons.

** It's hinted that the bards' High Chant is a poetic form of the common tongue that is much closer to the old tongue, and hence harder for most people to understand (which is why they prefer their stories told in the Plain Chant).

** Graendal and Samael are both described as being quite attractive, but never ''quite'' at the same level as [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter Lanfear or Lews Therin]].

* ActualPacifist: The Tinkers. If they're attacked, they'll run. If they can't run, they'll weather the attack the best they can and hope the act of violence won't cause too much harm to ''the attacker'', believing that violence always causes harm to both parties.
