** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' as well as a a few minor mentions in the first game reveal that there were stragglers that escaped after the Fereldan forces were clearly routed: Both [[PlayerCharacter Hawke]] (if a non-Mage) and Carver escaped the bloodbath, and so apparently did Wynne and Uldred, and a (non-Cousland) Dog.

** ...Except Sten. Due to the Qunari's BlueAndOrangeMorality, getting high approval with him through conversation is rather tricky. Telling him what you think he wants to hear will generally result in ''dis''approval. (The trick is to remember that Sten is very intelligent, and not to underestimate him: asking him about his culture and then either validating or - intelligently! - challenging his philosophy seems to consistently result in approval.)

For example, if he sounds like he doesn't want to discuss something, he ''doesn't want to discuss something.'' Saying "Okay, I'll let you be" gets you approval, while prodding him will get ''dis''approval... and he likely won't tell you anyway. Also, asserting your authority ("I'm not here to satisfy your expectations") will net approval too, especially if he's challenging it.

* ThisIsNotMyLifeToTake: Can be played straight. At the Landsmeet, [[spoiler: upon defeating Loghain in single combat, you have the option to either kill or spare him. If you choose to kill him, you can then finish the blow yourself, or hand it off to Alistair on the grounds that, for him, ItsPersonal]].
** Similarily, at the end of the ''Leliana's Song'' DLC, Leliana may refrain from killing Harwen Raleigh, leader of the Hard Line mercenaries. Instead, she can allow her comrade Silas, who was tortured for several months in Raleigh's dungeons, to finish him off.

* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: Well, more like fantasy game writers have no sense of distance. Given the size of Ferelden according to the official maps, and the time frame of events prior to the start of the game, only two of the six possible PC origin stories (City Elf and Mage) could have actually happened due to the travel times involved.

* ReducedToRatburgers: Living in abject poverty (like most city elves), the CE Warden's cousin Shianni has her own special "Rabbit Stew," where the rabbits are made of rats.
-->'''Shianni:''' "Rabbits of the city," cousin. If that doesn't sound delicious, you've been away from home too long.

* UtilityPartyMember: Rogues are this, thanks to receiving non-combat skill points every two levels (instead of every three, like warriors and mages). If the [[PlayerCharacter Warden]] isn't a rogue, then Leliana and Zevran become the party's skill monkeys.

* RedemptionEqualsAffliction: One of the possible outcomes of the plot is [[spoiler:BigBad Teyrn Loghain being forced into joining the Grey Wardens and helping the party battle the BiggerBad Archdemon in the FinalBattle. Should he survive, he's redeemed himself from almost plunging Ferelden into a civil war, but now has to spend the rest of his life with all of the nasty side effects of surviving the Joining process. Could also count as RedemptionEqualsDeath, although said death isn't coming for him just yet.]]
** RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:Alternately, Loghain can achieve this if the dark ritual is not performed and you allow him to be the one to kill the Archdemon.]]
