* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Galbatorix, in ''Inheritance''. [[spoiler: He hijacks the magical language itself in the final battle such that only he can use it, effectively [[DePower depowering]] nearly every other character. The only reason he lost was that Murtagh was [[HeelFaceTurn not as loyal as he thought]].]]

%% EnsembleDarkhorse: Murtagh.

to:

%% * EnsembleDarkhorse: Murtagh.Murtagh is a BadAss AntiHero who calls out Eragon on his more WhatTheHellHero moments, is good-looking and pragmatic, and comes complete with a {{Woobie}} backstory and discrimination from the anti-Empire forces who think he's just another stooge for the BigBad like his father. Even after his HeelFaceTurn many readers still preferred him to Eragon.



%% UnintentionallySympathetic: Sloan.

to:

%% * UnintentionallySympathetic: Sloan.Sloan was trapped in a village surrounded by the Empire's soldiers and human-eating monsters, who wanted to punish him and the rest of the village for the actions of a kid who wasn't there anymore and who Sloan didn't even like. Sloan then surrendered to the Empire to keep his daughter safe...and the Ra'zac pecked out his eyes, threw him into the dungeons of their evil lair and forgot about him, and trapped his daughter nearby. Then Eragon came by, and added insult to injury by cursing Sloan to never see his daughter again, even putting a geas on Sloan to force him to walk halfway across the continent to go and meditate with some arrogant elves until he "reformed". Harsh punishment for a man whose biggest crimes seem to be not liking the hero and wanting to protect his daughter.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Anti-fans of the series love to find new interpretations that subvert the good/evil conflict. So far, sites such as anti-shurtugal.com have concluded that Eragon is a sociopath, [[LaResistance the Varden]] are [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified terrorists]] and the original Dragonriders were a racist military junta.

* TheyJustDidntCare: No, the author himself put his all into his series. In this case it was the ''editor'' who was lazy. Aside from making sure that nothing was misspelled there are tons of minor and major continuity mistakes, PurpleProse abound, and somehow didn't notice that a sentence containing the words "descended upwards" doesn't make any sense.

** Also applies to the Elvish civilization as a whole and the EvilEmpire as a whole. The primary problem being that the wrong one of the pair goes to immense lengths to accommodate the needs of all its citizens, even the AlwaysChaoticEvil beast men, foster technological advancement and communication, and secure a good quality of life for the underclasses. The wrong one is also culturally monolithic and intolerant to the point of literally physically transforming the few allies it doesn't treat like absolute dirt into the self-professed master race.

*** It's hard to tell if the use of the "I raped him for his own good, to teach him a lesson" defense above is supposed to be a serious defense of the mind-rape or an illustration of what causes the readers to react to this example of a Galby/Eragon parallel so strongly out of the many available. PoesLaw at its finest.

Added DiffLines:

** SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: A lot of people say that ''Eldest'' was the point where the Cycle actually got its first bit of decent ground to stand on, distancing itself from the ClicheStorm that plagued ''Eragon'' and actually creating an engrossing story of its own with actually interesting characters.

* EndingAversion: Some fans of this series hated how the fourth book ended, due to the fact that it [[LeftHanging left too much hanging]]. (Paolini plans to tie everything up in a forthcoming "Book Five".)
