* At the end of the book, Adolin finally [[spoiler:has enough of Sadeas's treason, and kills him before he can poison the victory against Dalinar.Dalinar's triumph. With nothing but a knife and his bare hands]]. He takes masterful opportunity of the situation to [[spoiler:kill Sadeas in a way that wouldn't narrow it down to a Shardbearer, dispose of Oathbringer, dispose of any other evidence connecting him to the murder and then quickly sneak off to one of his search teams so he'd have an alibi since nobody knew he was at the scene of the murder to begin with aside from the victim.]]


* Also, the Kholin's first gambit against Sadeas was really good too, only failing because of Kaladin's recklessness and, most importantly, Elhonkar being unable to regain control and letting Sadeas finagle his way out of it. Realizing how he's been played however, and how close it was to succeeding, causes Sadeas to freak out and have a minor breakdown afterwards.

Realizing how he's been played however, and how close it was to succeeding, causes Sadeas to freak out and have a minor breakdown afterwards. And even if Sadeas slipped away, the Kholin faction ''still'' won multiple Shardblades and Shardplate sets, which is still a huge gain and victory for the Kholin faction.


--> '''Wit''': So frank, so blunt. You and Dalinar are alike, certainly. Someone needs to teach the pair of you to have a good time now and then.
--> '''Kaladin''': I know full well how to have a good time.
--> '''Wit''': Is that so?
--> '''Kaladin''': Yes. It involves being anywhere ''you'' aren't.

* Zahel. Everything he seems to say or do is made of win. This man bosses Kaladin around like he is a raw recruit (which he actually doesn't seem to mind). Doubles as a CrowningMomentofFunny when he orders Prince Renarin to hurl himself of the roof of the training building multiple times ''and he does.''

* The fact that Renarin even [[spoiler: managed to bind a Shardblade at all, given that he is a Radiant, is one. We know that binding a Shardblade requires holding it for days--and both Kaladin and Dalinar couldn't stand the screaming of dead spren in their head for more than around a minute. Renarin had to put up with that for days while binding the Blade, and then again every time he summoned it--and he still went into battle.]]

** Kaladin helping Adolin fight off ''four'' Shardbearers at once in the dueling ring. Highlights include kicking Shardplate so hard it breaks.


* And let's talk about the man himself: Adolin fought ''four'' Shardbearers. He was alone, he didn't know if he'd ever get any help, but not only he didn't run away, he realized ''they'' were afraid of ''him''. And, for a short while, he was even ''winning'' (specifically, he would most likely have been able to defeat three of them on his own).
