* CrystalWeapon: The crystal sword Callandor is a major symbol of the [[TheChosenOne Dragon Reborn]] -- and is an [[MadeOfIndestructium indestructible]] AmplifierArtifact of terrifying power for good measure. Oddly, its design was deliberately flawed in ways that make it dangerous to wield and [[spoiler:enable it to channel the [[TheAntiGod Dark One]]'s own power against him]].

* BadassLongcoat: The Asha'man, male channelers made BadAss by virtue of TrainingFromHell, and wearing black coats as their uniforms. Even the meekest among them could make YourHeadAsplode as easily as he could eviscerate you with his sword.

Added DiffLines:

* BornUnderTheSail: The ''Atha'an Miere'', commonly known as the Sea Folk, world-renowned merchants whose ships are central to their culture and who spend as little time on land as possible. Although they nominally govern several archipelagos, those lands are inhabited by a separate people and only visited by the Sea Folk for commerce.

Added DiffLines:

* CastFromStamina: Channeling in large amounts or for long periods of time is as tiring as intense or prolonged physical activity. Channelers in a prolonged battle have to work in shifts so they can rest, while some push through and drain themselves to the point that they can barely stand. Channeling past the point of exhaustion can cause a HeroicRROD and sometimes a permanent DePower.

* {{Badass}}: [[WorldOfBadass Quite a few examples]]...
** All the major protagonists TakeALevelInBadass over time, and the ones that started that way.
** Examples include Lan Mandragoran, who declares war on the Blight, and Rand Al'Thor, which is justified considering his status as the ChosenOne.
*** And then there's the Aiel, a [[UpToEleven race of badasses.]]

* 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.

** He gets another in ''Towers of Midnight'', one that is arguably ''the'' defining moment, since [[spoiler:it creates Mah'alleinir, a Power-wrought hammer that is [[Myth/NorseMythology Mjolnir]] to fulfill the Karaethon Cycle's "when the Wolf King takes up the hammer", via the discovery that one of the Asha'man has the Talent to make Power-wrought weapons]].

Added DiffLines:

** Even more telling, it was less the fall that killed the assassin and more the fact that he ended up with his heart impaled upon his own knife.

Added DiffLines:

** In Rand's case, being able to use the One Power means a bow is pretty superfluous.
