YMMV: Apprentice Adept
- Fridge Brilliance: Natives of Phaze seem really impressed by the potency of the "splash" from Stile's Triple Thee to Lady Blue, and Mach's to Fleta. Even compared to other Adepts' proclamations of love and/or truth, it's powerful. But considering that "thee", repeated, is doubly Rhyming with Itself, it'd be weird if the Magic Music-Adepts didn't get a more powerful effect than anyone else.
- God-Mode Sue: Stile. Mach and Bane even more so.
- Hilarious in Hindsight:
- The Tan Adept, who possesses the mind controlling Evil Eye, but can only use it against any given person once. Sound familiar?
- Also, the cover art for Blue Adept depicts Red as looking strikingly like Nicole Kidman; a plot point in the book involves her and The Hero Stile participating in a theatrical Tourney performance (in this case, a dance) involving Star-Crossed Lovers in an exotic setting (Arabia). Flash forward to...Moulin Rouge!, where Nicole Kidman's Satine stars with The Hero Christian in a theatrical performance (a musical this time) involving Star-Crossed Lovers in an exotic setting (India). For added irony, Red was a man-hater while Satine was a courtesan.
- Wangst: In the first book, Stile constantly bemoans his short stature and how it makes it so hard for him to attract women... while juggling three different potential love interests. He also repeatedly kvetches about how Sheen and Neysa are not real women, even though this does not stop him from having carrying on sexual relationships with them.
