* GoodParents: Especially By all accounts, Gorion was a great parent, especially in comparison to your natural ones.ones. Any bad behaviour from the player character can certainly not be blamed on any FreudianExcuse.

The fandom is divided on it.

* SdrawkcabAlias - If your PC completes Jaheira's personal sidequest in [=BG2=] successfully, a guy named "Terminsel" shows up at the end of it to give her a powerful magic item. No points for guessing whom he really is. (Jaheira does.)

* {{Expy}} - Elminster is most certainly not Gandalf with an orange/red color scheme instead of a gray one. Why would you even suggest that?

* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe - Elminster's first language is an archaic[[note]]he's over a thousand years old by the time of the Realms' present day[[/note]] form of Chondathan that is rendered as such in ''FR'' texts. He drops it for the sequel, though.

* BonusBoss - Sort of, in both games. You'll have to be the one to pick the fight with him, but the game at least lets you choose to do so (Elminster, by comparison, cannot be fought ever).
* TheCameo - Even more blatant than Elminster.
* CantCatchUp - It is very difficult for new players to to beat Drizzt in a straight fight in [=BG1=], however veterans can often solo or duo him with little trouble. In [=BG2=] he's merely a level fourteen ranger and even with a party of his own presents little threat.

* GondorCallsForAid - You can enlist his assistance in the fight against Bodhi.
* InfinityPlusOneSword - In [=BG1=] he carries by far the game's two best one-handed swords and some incredible chainmail. He carries them in the sequel as well, but by then they're nothing special.

* OurElvesAreBetter - A dark elf.
* OutOfCharacter - An odd example. While Drizzt mostly comes across as the [[IncorruptiblePurePureness practically saintly]] hero he is, his voice-acted lines outside the actual dialogue are written so as to make him sound irritable and arrogant.

* WhatTheHellHero - If you kill him in [=BG1=], he'll ask you why you did it in [=BG2=], and accept an answer of "You're a drow." If you say you'll help him in [=BG1=] against the gnolls he's fighting and don't (although he's easily powerful enough to kill every single gnoll in the game at the same time by himself) he'll be offended and leave. He's also will attack you if your character's name is [[NamesTheSame Drizzt]] and he has a low reputation.
* ZergRush - One of the most widely accepted ways of killing Drizzt in the first game is to spam him with summoned monsters or animated skeletons while sniping him with ranged weapons. Sure, he'll chop through those mooks like butter, but if you summon enough, he'll die before he can reach your party. The other way is to drink as many potions as you can (and use the aforementioned Protection of Evil bug) to improve your AC to a NighInvincible number, and then confront him.

* OurElvesAreBetter - Subverted, somewhat. She admits she screwed the pooch by letting Irenicus and Bodhi go, and that the elves are to blame for the death and destruction the two of them end up inflicting on the outside world.
* ReplacementGoldfish - In the first dungeon, Irenicus tries cloning her. The clone rebels against the Ellesime identity, going absolutely insane and requiring death.

[[NiceJobBreakingItHero Nice one, your highness.]]

* DecoyLeader[=/=]TheDragon - Implied. [[AllThereInTheManual According to]] [[ForgottenRealms the background material]] The Shadow Thieves are led by a group called the Shadow Council, whose names and identities are always kept secret and one of whom is on the Council of Six.

* MovingTheGoalposts - After paying the price to see him he decides that he needs a bit more aid out of you before he can send you on your way.
* NeutralEvil - InUniverse [[strike:Invoked]]. Due to laziness in Bioware's code he will appear as TrueNeutral in an unpatched game.
* ObviouslyEvil - He's not really much more subtle about his alignment than Bodhi is. The Shadow Thief guildhall contains examples of ColdBloodedTorture, TrainingFromHell, and a number of unsavoury characters.

* DirtyCoward[=/=]LovableCoward - Depending on how sympathetic you find him. He never fights once in the game and only casts spells to escape.
* DualWielding - Possibly a subversion, as his cowardly nature means he never actually fights.
* KarmaHoudini - Technically you can kill him at one point, but it doesn't "count" as the game continues with the assumption that he lived. In any case, he always ends up getting away with his crimes, which at the least involve robbery and frequently involve people getting killed (in fairness, he never kills anyone himself, or even fights at all, but he's still responsible).
