* CanonSue: In ''Ringworld's Children'', Louis [[spoiler:is transformed into a protector, but after using his new abilities to resolve the plot, he gets better thanks to Carlos Wu's autodoc. If becoming a protector is now a reversible condition, it diminishes the BlessedWithSuck aspect that protectors have always had.]]

* AssPull: The Hindmost reveals to Louis Wu in ''The Ringworld Throne'' that he has a quantum computer and the {{nanotech}}-based autodoc invented by Louis' biological father Carlos aboard his ship, without having mentioned them at all in the previous book.

The Hindmost reveals to Louis Wu in ''The Ringworld Throne'' that he has a quantum computer and the {{nanotech}}-based autodoc invented by Louis' biological father Carlos aboard his ship, without having mentioned them at all in the previous book.



* {{Sequelitis}}: ''The Ringworld Throne'' and ''Ringworld's Children'' are arguably not as good as the first two books in the series because of the number of {{Ass Pull}}s required by the plot (see above). ''The Ringworld Throne'' also suffers from focusing primarily on the Fearless Vampire Slayers, with Louis spending most of the story only watching them over the Hindmost's video feeds.

* {{Sequelitis}}: InferredHolocaust: The climax of ''Ringworld'' features kind of a doozy. They leave the Ring by [[spoiler: dragging their ship with shadow square wire. Thing is, they only have one end of the wire. The other is coiled up in a heavily inhabited city. Ever seen a high-tension cable break free? It can take off limbs. Now imagine ''hundreds of miles'' of ''razor sharp'' wire doing something similar...]] Apparently the author noticed this "small" problem (or a fan pointed it out) between the first book and the second, where our hero goes [[WhatTheHellHero What The Hell, Me]].
** Although the way they get the end of the wire they have is by retrieving it from the death-trap it was used to set up. The locals used it to string up the shadow square wire at neck-height, behind the protagonists.

Added DiffLines:

** ''The Ringworld Engineers'' is also considered by some to be a step down in quality from the original book, mainly because of the odd hoops the characters are forced through to justify their new characterization in the story.

* NeverLiveItDown: Because Red Herders are culturally monogamous, much of the conflict in the "Fearless Vampire Slayers" storyline in ''The Ringworld Throne'' comes from Tegger and Warvia fearing that they'd get a reputation for promiscuity after all the rishathra they had while under the influence of vampire scent.
