* {{Anvilicious}} - GAMBLING AND DISHONEST MONEYLENDING ARE VERY VERY BAD, we get it already, please put down the hammer Miz Rodda ma'am....
** We get undertones of a GreenAesop in the third series as well, with all the talk of respecting the land. ''[[AllThereInTheManual Secrets Of Deltora]]'' ups it even higher. However, in today's consumer society, it may be said that SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped.
* BigNameFan - There are currently three main people that seem to run the forums and write the best stories in the Fan Fiction world:
*** [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1288540/homesweethomicide13 homesweethomicide13]] is known for Barda/Doom slash.
**** [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1779519/ASongInMyHead ASongInMyHead]] is known for writing stories that fill in the blanks.
***** [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1743641/PlatinumGal PlatinumGal]] is known for some cute oneshots.
****** [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1127353/LadyLapisLazuli LadyLapisLazuli]] and [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/689413/PurpleLight PurpleLight]] occasionally step in, as well.
* ClarkesThirdLaw - A fair amount of what the Shadow Lord does sounds more like our technology than magic. From the lights in the Gray Guard growth building, to the "sparking rods", to the reference to the power being cut, it's easy to conclude that he's using electricity, which the heroes have no way to distinguish from magic. Whether the generation of Gray Guards is magic, science, or a bit of each is hard to say.
* CrackPairing - Some of the fanfic pairings are terrifying: [[MayDecemberRomance Lief]]/[[HoYay Barda]], [[HoYay Lief/Dain]], [[LesYay Sharn]]/[[MayDecemberRomance Zeean]], [[InterspeciesRomance Jasmine/Filli]] and most surprising, yet most popular: [[HoYay Barda/Doom]].
* EarWorm - The anime song about Thaegan and her children.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Doom insulting Jasmine's mother during the Rithmere Games.
* MagnificentBastard: The Shadowlord is an absolute master of both the XanatosGambit and the XanatosSpeedChess. His plans are simply brilliant and he is one hell of a {{Determinator}}, no matter how many times he's defeated, he'll always be ready with a new strategy
--> ''"I have many plans, plans within plans."''
* TheMole: [[spoiler:Faith]] is this in the second series.
* TheOphelia: Jasmine [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation probably]] qualifies
* TheScrappy - Prin. Good god, 1000 times Prin.
** In-universe, the opal out of all the gems. Lief hates touching it, since it usually means impending NightmareFuel.
* TheWoobie - Oh hey, Jasmine! Let's talk about your life. You grew up in a forest. When you were seven years old, your parents were taken away, presumably to be killed, and your home got burned down. You had to fend for yourself. When you were sixteen, two strangers invade the lifestyle that you made for yourself, and your dead mother's spirit made you leave your home to go on a quest with them. You had lots of trouble because you could barely read or write, and most people thought that you were mad. Then it turned out that the guy you kind of liked was [[spoiler:a servant of the Shadowlord, and not even human!]] Eventually you discovered that [[spoiler:your father is not really dead but all that he has been through has made him a completely different person]]. And then it turns out that the other guy you kind of liked was [[spoiler:the heir to the throne and became King]]. Later, you found out that you had a sister, Faith, in the Shadowlands. Another guy you kind of like [[spoiler: dies on the way to the Shadowlands]]. Oh, and Faith? It turned out that [[spoiler:she was not real, but a plot of the Shadowlord's to get the King into his realm. And the Shadow Lord says explicitly that you were never important in his eyes, just a pawn that could be used against Lief]].
