* BaseBreaker: There are basically no neutral opinions about Zifnab (much like his counterparts in other W&H works). He's either [[TheScrappy dreadfully unfunny]], [[FourthWallObserver constantly breaks suspension of disbelief]], and [[CreatorsPet way over-pushed]], or he's [[CloudCuckoolander charmingly daft]], desperately needed [[PluckyComicRelief comic relief]] in a grim story, and [[Literature/{{Dragonlance}} pleasantly nostalgic]].

* CriticalDissonance: While popular with the Weis & Hickmab fanbase, certain critics seemed to have it in for the series. ''Publishers Weekly'' in particular got increasingly scathing and vitriolic with each entry.

* TearJerker: [[spoiler: Bane's death, though you feel far more sorry for the mother forced to execute her own son than the psychopath-in-training who really had it coming]].

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: The lazar are ''made'' of this trope. They can never escape their own suffering, but have apparently taken the saying "misery loves company" to heart. Possibly the tytans as well. All they want to do is go home. When no one can tell them how to get there, they [[AxCrazy don't respond well]].

* MotiveDecay: Xar goes from wanting to build a better future for the Patryns to wanting to lead the Patryns to conquer the universe because it's their birthright to wanting to conquer the universe for his own benefit. This is spelled out in [[TearJerker tear-jerking fashion]] in ''The Seventh Gate'' when he wonders exactly ''how'' he got from "Save my people" to "EvilOverlord". —And then hears the sound of Sang-drax's laughter in his mind...



* TooDumbToLive: One family member of the elven main character of ''Elven Star'' is this, as she's so fixated on running the family business that she repeatedly dismisses alarm horns as drills and even with omnicidal, giant magical creatures practically at the house's doorstep just thinks everyone else is being crazy. Unsurprisingly, she dies.
