Added DiffLines:

* FridgeBrilliance: Panamon Creel mentions that Paranor is haunted when Shea brings up that he wants to go there. After reading other Shannara works like ''Literature/TheDarkLegacyOfShannara'' and the graphic novel ''Dark Wraith of Shannara'', Panamon's talk makes sense; magic protects Paranor and attacks any intruders trying to break in. That's what probably gave rise to the in-universe beliefs that Paranor is haunted.

Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: The Federation refuses to help the Elves and their allies in the War of the Forbidding as they are skeptical of the Demons in the first place and said Demons haven't directly attacked them. It turns out in the later entry, ''Literature/TheDarkLegacyOfShannara'', that the Demons escape the Forbidding again, this time turning up in Federation territory. They raze the Federation capital, killing its defenders and much of the populace.

* TearJerker: This is the one where [[spoiler: Allanon dies]]. And then there's [[spoiler: Jair's companions. Helt's is particularly poignant, as is Garet Jax's]]. In a nondeath related example, Slanter's goodbye to Jair is also quite touching.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Nearly 40 ago, when the fantasy industry was in its infancy, ''The Sword Of Shannara'' was hailed as a worthy successor to Tolkien's epic. Now the prevalence of the tropes in it can make it seem rather cliché.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Panamon Creel is a very popular character, for his morally ambiguous nature, general badassery, and dramatic flair. This led to both the creation of Padishar Creel in ''TheHeritageOfShannara'', and Panamon's starring role in the short story ''The Black Irix''.

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeLogic: Allanon didn't need Wil at all, only the Elfstones. True, the stones can only work for someone to whom they'd been freely given, but since Allanon was the one who gave them to Shea in the first place, and from Shea to Wil, why couldn't Wil just give them to Allanon and then have him present them to ''any fullblooded elf'' who could use them safely and leave Wil to continue his studies?

* HoYay: Menion Leah is very obviously head-over-heels in love with Shea Ohmsford. Which, [[FridgeLogic when you think about it]], might explain why Shea's older brother Flick dislikes Menion so much.
