YMMV: David Gemmell
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: In 'Hero in the Shadows' Yu Yu the Chiatze Ditch Digger seduces a maid in Waylander's palace. He is then confronted by some guardsmen who call him a slant-eyed pig and ask him why he feels he can steal their women. Yu Yu muddles up the translation and thinks he's being accused of stealing a woman's one-eyed pig.
    • Stavut from Swords of Night and Day: "Why am I taking seduction advice from a man who's idea of foreplay is to slam some coins on the table and ask 'Who wants to ride the big horse?'?"
    • Viruk The Avatar is a walking one of these, well when he's not murdering people
  • Magnificent Bastard: The Rigante series' Moidart, to levels almost rivalling his fellow Machiavelli-expy Lord Vetinari. Likewise, also his author's best-drawn Anti-Villain.
    • And that's saying SOMETHING.
  • Tear Jerker: Hero in the Shadows, Sword in the Storm, Ravenheart, Fall of Kings and Stormrider all have heartbreaking climaxes.
