* NightmareFuel: Freya in the pit of corpses.
* OneSceneWonder: Creator/RonPerlman as Gunnar, the king of a rival tribe.
* StrawmanHasAPoint: Kainan says the justification for wiping out the Moorwen was to tell themselves they were just animals, thereby implying that they weren't. But for pretty much the entire movie that's ''exactly'' what the Moorwen acts like and no more... a cunning but completely vicious animal. At best, the two are NotSoDifferent, as the Moorwen retaliates for the death of its species by slaughtering those who had nothing to do with it, including people on an ''entirely different planet''.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Anyone really, most especially Frank and Laoghaire.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Murtagh
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The books are very popular in Germany, for some reason, to the point of new books being published there translated into German on the same day as the English originals.
* LoveToHate: Jack Randall, naturally, by most of the fandom.
* NightmareFuel: Contains more than a little, no surprise. High points include the lovely medical scenes.
* OfficialCouple: Jamie/Claire, [[spoiler: Brianna/Roger]], Jenny/Ian, [[spoiler: Fergus/Marsali]], Frank/Claire in the beginning of ''Outlander''.
* TheWoobie: Jamie, full stop. Every book introduces some new torment that he has to go through. [[spoiler: In the first three books alone, he is raped by Black Jack Randall, accused of treason and murder and is hunted because of it, almost dies from fever and serious injuries, and is almost killed at Culloden and find himself separated from Claire and is completely miserable for twenty years.]]
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: [[http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/07/26/outlander-opening-credits/ The main title theme.]]
* LesYay: Geillis and Claire have a bit of this, [[spoiler: certainly evident during their witch trial, when both Claire and Geillis are willing to die for one another, Claire even has a way out if she just claims Geillis corrupted her, but she can't bring herself to do it, Geillis [[HeroicSacrifice then saves Claire by confessing to witch craft and to corrupting Claire]], while the angry mob carries her away Jamie is able to run away with Claire.]]
