* LightningBruiser -> MightyGlacier: As the scroll's curse takes hold, he gets progressively slower. However, he has average to above average meters in all three main stats, the second-best melee weapon in the game, and the curse will also revive him from death if he is killed.

* MostWritersAreWriters: A twelfth century slave girl being able to read is highly unlikely, much less one having ownership of a book.
** Then again, given the eldritch nature of the book, it's very possible that the book simply gave her the ability to read it. It also gave Alex the ability to understand it, and it can be read equally well by all the Chosen, no matter their native language.

* LamarckWasRight: their minions are given an AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance. Mantorok's zombies (the only creatures he can command after getting [[SealedGoodInACan canned]]) are withered and blackened (Corpse God), Chattur'ghas monsters have bulging muscles and a HealingFactor (strength and warfare), Ulyaoths look like they're made from blue crystal or ice, and are associated with sea creatures (sorcery and water), and Xel'otath's are wierd, such as being wrapped in flammable cloth or having BizarreAlienBiology, and can conjure phantom limbs to keep fighting if dismembered (insanity).

* TheLoad: She can't actively cast spells outside of using an enchanted amulet a finite number of times to heal herself, and her health and magick meters are both tiny. In addition, she can permanently lose her only decent weapon, the Short Sword, if you fail to save an NPC, a task which varies from difficult (Chattur'gha) to neigh-impossible (Ulyaoth).

Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedGameplayChange: As an architect, Roberto is tasked with surveying specific rooms within the Forbidden City, making sure their structural integrity is intact, and then reporting his findings back to his captors.

Added DiffLines:

* NervesOfSteel: One of the only practiced fighters in the cast with average to high stats all around. His sanity ''is'' likely to fail at some point, his resolve never does and he rarely shows signs of fear.

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: According to the some of the other workers, Roberto was sent into the depths of the forbidden city to be eaten by monsters, but he successfully surveys the building the project there anyway. He is not exactly thanked for it, so they were probably right.

* {{Mooks}}: Mantorok Zombies. Even if you '''could''' create them, you wouldn't want to -- they're incredibly weak, flammable, and slow both in attack speed and walking pace.

* LosingYourHead: Most of her minions lack heads and her zombies will replace theirs if it is lost. Xel'lotath herself also vaguely resembles a headless humanoid female. [[StealthPun Makes sense.]]

* PurpleIsPowerful: Mantarok has purple-aligned magic that far exceeds the others, becoming a GameBreaker if you get the runes before they become {{Permanently Missable|Content}}. The other Ancients recognize this and have the Corpse God bound in his own temple. [[spoiler:It's not enough to stop him from killing them all.]]

to:

* NonElemental: Figuratively speaking, anyway. His magicks have no weaknesses to the other three Ancients, affecting all equally, but they're not ''quite'' as powerful as using a properly aligned offensive magick. That said...
