* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The series is almost universally popular among Italian tabletop gamers, where the Kai Knights have been redubbed "Ramas Knights" and a few names have been changed around to emphasize the "medieval fantasy" feel of the setting.



* GaryStu: Lone Wolf is this, and it's EXTREMELY obnoxious to female readers.

* ThatOnePuzzle: Although WordOfGod has claimed otherwise, one puzzle in ''The Legacy of Vashna'' (a logic puzzle that doesn't give you enough information to work out the answer) is literally [[GuideDangIt unsolvable]] without extreme [[MoonLogicPuzzle out of the box thinking]] or [[TrialAndErrorGameplay flipping to random sections]] in hopes it will be right. Fortunately, you don't have to know the answer to progress, but knowing the answer does evade a combat.

WordOfGod is that the riddle wasn't supposed to be unsolvable, but a part of the question was missed out.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The part in ''Fire on the Water'' with the Noodnics, a {{Funetik Aksent}}ed race of [[TalkingAnimal talking rodents]] who appear briefly to help you out and steal your gold, never to be referenced again.[[note]]"Nudnik" is Yiddish for "Bothersome Person". Many words in the various dark tongues in the books are also Hebrew words, although they're usually rather random ("Naar" is "Young Man"). And the "-im" suffix being used to describe a plurality of entities is also from Hebrew. UnfortunateImplications?[[/note]]

* UnfortunateImplications: Several times in the series, Dever refers to enemies as "swarthy" or "dark-skinned," while light-skinned people are almost always good. Worse, in book 19 (Dawn of the Dragons), an enemy nation is described as being full of greedy raiders and connivers who only got a country by stealing it, and their national seal is... [[GreedyJew a Star of David]].

** In Book 18, Lone Wolf notices a crowd gathered around a faith healer. The angry mob is ready to attack him for having no progress in fixing a woman's headache. When Lone Wolf realizes that the man has no powers, but genuinely wants to help people, he discretely uses his own powers to cure the woman, turning the old man into a hero for his village.

* UnfortunateImplications
** "The sight [of Lone Wolf] is so frightening that all resistance melts away, and creatures hurl themselves into the lake rather than face the fearsome straight-backed, white-skinned killer of their kin."
** Book 7 was definitely one of the worst, probably due to it taking place in the fantasy counterpart of Africa. It doesn't help that all the slaves in the castle are dark-skinned. (Although, to be fair, the ones ''enslaving'' them were explicitly the bad guys.) Except that those slaves are not human (they are consistently described as "creatures", much like the Beastmen guards of that place). And to be even more fair, the people who were enslaving them were also black-skinned as well, like basically everyone in that part of the world.
** Book 5 (set in a fantasy-counterpart Arab country) suffers from this too, though to a lesser extent. There are good Vassagonian characters depicted, and it's implied that at least some of the problems are caused by the puppet government put in place by the Darklords.
** More generally: untrustworthy characters are frequently "swarthy".

** I was so dismayed by his death that, 15 years later after having originally read book number 7 I included a non-playing-charachter patterned after him in a ''D&D'' campaign of mine only to more or less force the players to rescue that long-lost sister of him.
