* [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment Of Awesome]]: Many examples.
** When Queen Ysandre rides unarmed and unprotected through [[spoiler: the ranks of the misguided Royal Army]] to face down [[spoiler: the [[EvilChancellor usurping Royal Commander]] and (metaphorically) reclaim the crown]], does that count as both a Crowning Moment Of Awesome and an AwesomeMomentOfCrowning?
** Also, the Battle of Troyes-Le-Mont is a series of these one right after the other. From [[spoiler: Waldemar Selig and Isidore D'Aiglemort killing each other on the battlefield]] to [[spoiler: Joscelin dropping three times his own height in order to save his brother's life]] pretty much everyone gets to do something awesome.

* [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Crowning Moment Of Funny]]: Phedre's Boys' ''extremely'' lewd regimental song. Phedre turns bright red every time it's revealed they've taught it to someone else

* CompleteMonster: The Mahrkhagir practices sexual torture, mutilation and degradation of all kinds and is just overall a master at tormenting people psychologically as well as physically, with a priesthood to back him up as well. The Mahrkagir violently oppresses the population of his home nation and is a cruel sadist on every level. Imriel as a child was his captive, and recounts a time when the Mahrkagir bargained with him to spare a girl Imriel was fond of, if Imriel would swallow his piss. Imriel tried and failed, so the Mahrkagir raped the woman and slit her throat at the end. When Phedre, the heroine, infiltrates his harem to help bring him down, the Mahrkagir brutalizes her nightly and even uses a spiked iron rod on her for sex, relishing every moment of pain. Only her unique gifts as an Anguisette (a being who derives intense pleasure from pain) allows her survival.

* NightmareFuel
** Pretty much everything the Mahrkagir does qualifies.
** The portion of Avatar set in Darsanga when it's not being FetishFuel.
*** Of course, at Phèdre points out, [[FridgeBrilliance it's possible for something to be both horrific and FetishFuel at once.]]

* StrangledByTheRedString: Played straight and played with in-universe with Bao and Moirin. Of the three main couples, they had the weakest development during the first book, lacking a strong moment where feelings blossomed like the previous two. However, this changes to something of a subversion when [[spoiler: Moirin shares her connection with her deity with Bao to save his life. Their spirits become tied together permanently, forcing feelings whether they would have gone there naturally or no.]] Bao promptly tries to rebel against this 'destined love' [[spoiler: and runs away, forcing Moirin to track him down.]]

Added DiffLines:

* VillainHasAPoint: Raphael de Mereliot may not be a very impressive villain but in Naamah's Blessing he seems to raise a fair point when he decides he is done being stepped on by Elua and the Companions. We are supposed to agree with Moirin and her companions who tell him that he is sick and needs help, and to pray to the Gods for forgiveness, one character even telling Raphael that he failed the Gods... how?? By standing up for himself and trying to make his own destiny rather than just meekly accept what his Gods have given him? By being understandably angry about the fact that every single person he has ever cared about has either abandoned him or died? It's hard to not agree with him that the Gods are cruel, the first trilogy really hammered that point home, and even harder to not agree that he has a right to be upset.

* StrangledByTheRedString: Moirin and Bao. Many readers complain they lack chemistry compared to other pairings, and in-universe they don't really have a ''choice'' about their relationship [[spoiler: after Bao dies and is resurrected with half of Moirin's spirit.]]
