* {{Expy}}: They're essentially a less destructive version of Project Mayhem from ''Film/FightClub'', just without the fight clubs.

* BreadandCircuses: The Circle offers many comforts, provided they aren't run by abusive Templars like in Kirkwall. Mages in the Circle technically always have a roof over their heads, are well supplied so they never have to worry about starvation, have a number of books and scholars on hand for all inhabitants so they have a better education than the common population, and are surrounded by knights so if an invasion or national threat does happen they can depend on Templars to help them. The Circle was arguably the safest place in Ferelden during the Fifth Blight until Uldred started inviting demons inside it. A dilemma among the mage community is if they should give up these comforts in exchange for freedom, or if there should be some sort of middle ground.

** The Wardens also bear a certain similarity to the various [[Franchise/TheWitcher Witcher Schools]], serving as largely (but not entirely) neutral monster-eradicating organizations that undergo various magical processes to become proficient at what they do. The two groups have also seen a heavy decline in numbers in the timeframe of their stories, as well as receiving more than their fair share of mistrust from common folk despite the invaluable service they provide.

* RenegadeSplinterFaction: They abandoned the Chantry to serve as the enforces of the Elder One's will. Thanks to the red lyrium and the Elder One's indoctrination, nothing remains of their former compunctions: they gladly slaughter or enslave anyone that their new god demands them to. Starting with their any their former allies that escaped conversion. Even the most hardened of normal Templars and Seekers are horrified to see what their fellows have become.

* PsychoSerum: Regular lyrium already leads to mental degredation. Red lyrium not only does that, but induces extreme aggression and paranoia in a fraction of the time, enhancing physical abilities to inhuman levels all the while.

* BadassDecay: By the time of ''Origins'', it's been four hundred years since the last Blight, the darkspawn are only ever seen in small numbers on the surface which (combined with propaganda spread after the end of the Fourth Blight) has convinced most of Thedas that the losses the darkspawn took in the final battle mean they can never again be a major threat to the world. Furthermore, most people across Thedas look down on the Grey Wardens as both a relic of a dark period in history best left forgotten still trying to convince the world they have relevence, and a dumping ground for criminals, blood mages, second sons and other social undesireables.
