* CrazyAwesome: Angus the Mauler. [[spoiler:''"ELEPHAAAANTS!"'']]
* CreepyAwesome: Fearghus Campbell
* HeartwarmingInHindsight: When he returns to Scotland, Alexander Canmore wonders if his descendants will take the throne. [[spoiler:The story ends with his grandson Kirk becoming ruler of the Scottish Empire]].
* HilariousInHindsight: The name of the last stubborn leader of the Egyptian faction? [[UsefulNotes/TheArabSpring Mubarak]].
* {{HSQ}}: The Timurids bring nine thousand troops into Scotland, totally dwarfing any army that could be assembled against them. [[spoiler: Except the '''fifteen thousand''' Scots waiting for them.]]
* MagnificentBastard: Aodh Canmore, ''full stop.'' Pick one of his plots, ''any'' of his plots. From [[spoiler: destroying the Moors while Domnall is incapacitated]] to [[spoiler: convincing Domnall to attack the Danes]] to [[spoiler: convincing Hungary to invade and sack ''Rome'' and then retaking Rome and talking the Pope into surrendering control over all the Papal lands to Scotland]] to [[spoiler: the entire false DownerEnding that leads to the simultaneous assassination of the entire Timurid leadership]], Aodh Canmore is someone you do ''not'' want to try to out-fox.
** Fearghus Campbell and his successors in the Scottish Spy Network also serve as these. Even after two full generations of new Spymasters have replaced him, people all over the world still get the creeps when his name is mentioned.
** Gille Calline the Balleol deserves a mention too.
* MemeticBadass: Angus the Mauler. Fearghus Campbell, the first of Scotland's spymasters, is still feared despite being dead.
