** [[spoiler: Domnall's decision to engage the Danes as above, [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill and perform a genocide in the name of revenge]] can be seen as one. There is a ''very'' good reason he goes from being [[EmbarassingNickname Domnall the Lewd]] to [[TheDreaded Domnall the Merciless]].]]

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: When he returns to Scotland, Alexander Canmore wonders if his descendants will take the throne. [[spoiler:The story ends with his grandson Kirk becoming ruler of the Scottish Empire]].

* MoralEventHorizon: Likeable the protagonists may be, several of the Scotsman and their enemies perform acts that go well beyond dickish, into truly appalling crimes, though given the GreyAndGreyMorality and ProtagonistCentredMorality on all sides, what constitutes the horizon will depend on the reader.
** [[spoiler: Cassandra being miffed at being cast aside as Adam's mistress is understandable. Trying to goad and threaten Robert the Younger into not only [[WouldHurtAChild killing his nephew and Adam's newborn son,]] but [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil rape and murder Adam's wife]] for ignoring her, isn't.]]

** [[spoiler: Aodh forges documents framing Denmark for causing the excommunication of Scotland, incensing Domnall enough to start a war with Denmark. He does this because he felt that the new found peace was weakening Domnall and making him lose respect amongst his people. For the record, this act leads to an unmitigated, one sided genocide of the Danish people, and he did it because he felt his King was getting soft without a war to fight.]]

* DesignatedHero: For all their bravery, the Scots are still capable of some seriously dickish behavior. The very first city they took was ''allied'' to them.



* MemeticBadass: Angus the Mauler. Fearghus Campbell, the first of Scotland's spymasters, is still feared despite being dead.

* CompleteMonster: Name a Mongol or Timurid general. Any one.
** From the prequel, Auletes Ptolemy is a perverted, AxCrazy BloodKnight who is [[EstablishingCharacterMoment introduced]] admitting that he's going to enjoy slaughtering a British town and plans to rape the native women after the battle is won. He is never presented as heroic and even his fellow Egyptians seem to be disgusted by him. The Gaelic general Vortigern counts as well.
