** Another highlight: after finally getting fed up by everything that's happened during the Sixth Age, you have the opportunity to deliver an epic TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Saradomin and Zamorak.
--> '''World Guardian:''' Enough! You're both gods. Immortal beings of phenomenal power and influence and you're both acting like children.
--> '''Saradomin:''' [[WhoDares YOU DAR-]]
--> '''World Guardian:''' [[ShutUpHannibal Yes I dare.]] Because fighting now, [[DivideAndConquer it's exactly what Sliske wants]]. He wants you to kill each other. And do you know what he'll do when you do so? He'll laugh. He doesn't want you dead because of some great plan. [[ForTheEvulz He wants you to kill each other because it is funny]].
--> '''Zamorak:''' The World Guardian is right.
--> '''World Guardian:''' Of course I am! [[DudeWheresMyRespect Who do you think has been at the centre of all of this mess?]] Not you. Neither of you have seen friends killed by Sliske. Neither of you have seen allies warped into monsters. Neither of you had to face a god built out of the screaming remnants of human souls. Neither of you have had to travel back in time to visit an old friend, only to be brought back staring at his corpse. For all that you've been through, know that it's a drop in the ocean compared to what Sliske has done to me. So now, for once. Just for once. Shut up and stop giving Sliske what he wants.

* The end of Rune Memories. The soul fragments of the order masters and their apprentices verbally tear down [[spoiler:Wizard Ellaron]] as they're siphoned out of Ariane, even the two wizards of the Red Order [[spoiler:to whom Ellaron swore allegiance to]]. Finally, they tell the Adventurer to make [[spoiler:Ellaron]] their new host, before forcefully teleporting him to the Abyss where he will inevitably explode from being unable to contain their power, leaving the Tower unharmed. Doubles as a Heartwarming moment, as their last moments had them breaking apart due to conflict that killed all of them save for Perien and Kelavan and destroyed the original Tower - but despite everything, they still considered themselves friends and teamed up to take down the "false Red Wizard" and save the Wizards' Tower.

* The [[FinalBoss Final Boss]] in [[AlternateTimeline "Dimension of Disaster"]]; for context: at the beginning of the quest you stumble upon an "Alternate Varrock" in a timeline where you never existed, which ended up allowing Zemouregal to [[TheBadGuyWins finally take over Varrock]], rename it "New Varrock" and kill all the heroes and other parties that tried to stop him. By the time you arrive, Zemouregal has [[VictoryIsBoring grown so bored over the years of unchallenged power]] that despite knowing of your presence he still allows you to roam free around the city while he waits for you to challenge him just to "be amused" and outright tells you to just go get Silverlight and the Shield of Arrav as an starting point... well, by the the end of the story, you DID retrieve Silverlight and the Shield of Arrav but here's the big plot twist: instead of you wielding them to fight Zemouregal, you give them to the zombified Arrav you just helped release so HE fights Zemouregal, that's right, finally, after so many years, we get to see Arrav getting payback on Zemouregal without any interruptions, result? Arrav not only wins, but outright kills Zemouregal

** More impressive in that the teleportation spell flawlessly [[spoiler: whisked [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Nex]], [[PlayingWithFire Char]], and several renewed [[{{Badass}} strong Mahjarrat]] ]]. [[spoiler: Saradomin]] has good reason to be surprised.

* Zaros [[CurbStompBattle beating the unholy tar out of]] Zamorak in "Children of Mah" is [[KarmaHoudiniWarranty justice several millennia in the making]]. Even before that, the cinematic cutscene of their original battle in the Second Age is no less impressive.

* Apparently, the World Guardian is so awesome, doing things such as [[OneManArmy defending Burthorpe from trolls singlehandedly]] or solving a mystery the royal guards can't crack is just another Tuesday for them. As one character points out in ''Kindred Spirits'', this makes [[TallPoppySyndrome them and their cohorts inferior by comparison.]]

** An honourable mention goes to the elven elders themselves, and how they hid from Lord Iorwerth. One turned himself into a tree. Another hid in the spirit plane. One of them hid on the other side of the main continent in a hidden dungeon that could only be accessed using her potion recipe. One of them died, but still made sure that her wisdom could be passed on to any clan member who could see a statue of her greatest work.

* Almost everyone knows by now that Sliske is a manipulative sadistic sneaky narcissistic god-killer who is just pitting every god against one another for his own amusement. [[spoiler:Except in ''Kindred Spirits'' the World Guardian discovers that his plans have been in motion for '''years'''. Ever since a ship bound for the Eastern Lands was marooned and its crew scattered; with one crew member admitted to an asylum for speaking of a person who doesn't exist. Sliske interrogated the man for this information, and its apparent connection to the Gods. He soon finds out that the person the sailor was speaking about was you, the adventurer, who hadn't even been born. In addition, Sliske is not the man in charge, but is working for another party, one with a vested interest in the World Guardian. When he finds out that you know of these discoveries, he is NOT happy.]]

* When players first logged on after the RuneScape 3 update, they were met with a cutscene showing Zamorak and Saradomin meeting outside Lumbridge, and engaging in a BeamOWar. It caused the area between Lumbridge and Draynor to turn into a blasted battleground, with glowing green rocks everywhere. This was the setup for the first World Event; players can choose to fight for Saradomin or Zamorak, gathering as many of the green rocks, or "Divine Tears" as possible to empower their chosen god and help them overpower the other.

** And three words in response: "Then, we fight." Yep. Zanik just talked an entire nation of pacifists into a standoff with the God of War, knowing that they have very little chance to win. As the finale summarizes, you taught the Dorgeshuun curiosity; Zanik taught them courage.

* Now we know why Tumeken, the Menaphite sun god and head of that particular pantheon, hasn't shown up in the Sixth Age. Back in the Second Age, when the Mahjarrat joined Zaros, there were about 500 of them. Tumeken reacted by suicide bombing an entire race of HumanoidAbominations and wiping most of them out. The downside to this was that the land they were in became a desert, and about half of Tumeken's people died with him.

** Remember back when this quest was about a plague and some [[ObstructiveBureaucrat annoyingly inefficient public officials]]? The writers of the quest sure do, and they resolve the fate of the people of West Ardougne in the most satisfying way: revolution. The player breaks the truth of the plague and the Death Guard to the people, and they storm the Mourner Headquarters along with all of the NPCs from the early quests and kill the Mourners.
