** We get more information about this in "Breakline", when Amberlie and Eretria fall through a hole and find themselves in the remains of a human high school. Amberlie explains that most human structures were sealed beneath the Earth when human society was wiped out, which [[RagnarokProofing kept them from rotting into dust.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FashionDissonance: For a show playing in a AfterTheEnd MedievalStasis society, somehow the main characters are managing to find jeans and other clothing that could have come straight from a modern mall. And are somehow stain resistant, no matter how battered the characters are.


* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield; The Four Lands are confirmed to be Western North America 3,000 years AfterTheEnd, but the precise locations aren't made clear. The ruins of the Space Needle are visible at one point, placing Arborlon and Shady Vale near Seattle, but later episodes indicate Safehold is located in the ruins of San Francisco, even though the characters haven't been traveling long enough to cover the 850 miles between the two places.
** [[AllThereInTheManual The Great War caused massive tectonic shifts, reshaping the world drastically]].

** In fact, the only race that is known to exist without anyone being known to hate them (so far) is the Dwarves.Dwarves - and that may be because we never really find out anything at all about them except that they exist.

Added DiffLines:

* ArrangedMarriage: Between Ander and Lyria in Season 2, to cement the alliance between Arborlon and Leah. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, the Crimson crash the wedding ceremony and Ander is slain]].


* ShirtlessScene: Wil constantly finds himself in situations that require him to take off his shirt, roughly OnceAnEpisode. Bandon's shirt also comes off a lot, though the circumstances tend to be a lot less sexy. [[note]][[FetishFuel Depending on your tastes, of course...]][[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* FighterMageThief: The trio as they set off on their quest. We have Amberle (fighter), Wil (mage), and Eretria (thief).


* HumansByAnyOtherName: Averted. In the book series, the Races are sometimes called human collectively and the ones who are like ordinary modern humans are referred to (as in Tolkien's legendarium) as Men. Here, what would be called Men in the books are called humans, and the other Races aren't.

Added DiffLines:

* EnclosedExtraterrestrials: Technically mutants, not extraterrestrials, but still alien-like, the Trolls are all covered in SteamPunk clothing.

** One particularly amusing incident happens when Erroll Shand's Valcaa starts a scene with what seems to be a Texan drawl, then halfway through switches to a more "regular" Midwestern one.
