* If this turns out to be true, he could be the returning BigBad for the independent fifth book. By blowing himself up, he could leave everyone in a HopeSpot, only to return and crush their spirits. Defeating him may require the Rock of Kuthian.

\n[[WMG: The InheritanceCycle is a hopeful setup for crossovers.]]
As many have pointed out the similarities of this series to other popular ones (namely StarWars, LordOfTheRings, DoctorWho, etc.) and the possibilities of this series sharing a universe with them, it isn't farfetched to think that maybe Paolini was hoping to someday bring all the major fandoms together in a collaborative work. The first step was to throw in some EasterEggs that a softcore reader wouldn't pick up on, but a hardcore reader would. But due to the box office failure of the movie, his plans have been halted.

** He had the story planned out, but merely didn't take length into account. As the third book came out TOO LONG (even for his tastes), he had to turn the Trilogy into a Cycle.

* As said above, in the ElvesVsDwarves conflict, Paolini prefers the dwarves.

\n\n** A real world example for the mix up of North and South would be ancient Egypt. The Northern Kingdom (or was it North Kingdom?) was to the south of the its southern counterpart.

The truth is, he's just ''so good'' that us regular folk can't understand the sheer magnitude of his genius. The reason his stuff seems so trite and [[PurpleProse purple prose-y]] when we read it is that his vision is so vast, our tiny minds can only pick up on little bits and pieces of it at a time, and, of course, individually they won't seem very good. Such is the width of the man's vision. In fact, only three people can grasp the godliness of words that is ''The Inheritance Cycle'': Paolini himself, and [[SeltzerAndFriedberg two gods of cinematography whose greatness is equally lost on us laymen.]]

* Also, I think we're overestimating the hatedom of Eragon a little. Yeah, it's not a great series, but I'm pretty confident that majority of the people who dislike the series have more the "'''[[PhineasAndFerb I have an intense, burning]] [[SoOkayItsAverage indifference!]]'''" sort of attitude to the series than an actual hatred.

* Partially Confirmed [[spoiler: Eragon uses the Eldurai's energy to do a nameless spell to make Galbatorix understand. AKA empathy.]]

Supporting this are the dragons' "cousins" living in the Beor mountains, which use PsychicPowers to paralyse their prey with fear. Oh, and that [[FurryFandom furry]] elf who does not seem to realise that his body is exuding pheremones.
