* RapeDiscretionShot: In the City Elf origin story, you don't see [[spoiler:Shianni]] being raped but you do see her on the floor next to [[spoiler:Vaughn]], and dialogue after the fact makes it pretty clear that this is what happened.

Leliana also hints at this in discussion with the Warden and during her DLC, but by her own admission she changes the story depending on the audience thus the suggestion of rape can be taken as a means of drawing sympathy.

** Morrigan's personal quest. [[spoiler: She wants you to kill Flemeth, which she admits probably won't achieve much more than a few years of prep time. If you accept the quest, Flemeth will offer to just leave for a few years instead of fighting you.]]

* SequelHook: The WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue is pretty blatant about this. It makes it very clear that your character's adventures are not over ([[spoiler:assuming you took Morrigan's offer]]), and even the scenes before that [[CanonFodder leave plot threads just open enough to expand]]. This is especially true if you got the ending where [[spoiler:the resident DarkMagicalGirl goes off into the wilderness to raise your/Alistair's/Loghain's child (the [[AGodAmI resurrected old god]]) with presumably interesting results in a decade or two.]] A conversation with Sten reveals that the Qunari are planning to invade Ferelden, which he implies will occur in the player character's lifetime.

*** Creator/BioWare has declared that the story of "The Hero of Ferelden" (the protagonist of ''Origins'', and possibly ''Awakening'', [=GoA=], and WH too) is over. Surprising to those who interpreted the ending of ''Origins'' and ''Witch Hunt'' as an opening for the Warden's return; downright confusing to those who know from ''Awakening'' and/or ''Dragon Age II'' that the Warden has disappeared and is being actively sought by the Chantry to help save the world again. However, they did promise to provide a Warden cameo in ''Inquisition,'' and have since made good on the promise; the Inquisitor is able to contact the Warden during the course of the game, learning ''why'' s/he has disappeared.

** Human Noble: Arl Howe is always referred to as the "Teyrn of Highever" when his part comes up later in the story, so he usurps the Highever Teyrnir regardless of which origin is played. You can also learn about the Cousland family massacre from overheard NPC dialogue. If you are not a Human Noble, the houndsmaster will mention that Dog's previous owner was a young noble who died; since Dog would not have escaped on his own from Highever, the implication is that Bryce Cousland's younger child came to Ostagar with big brother Fergus but died either en route or after arrival.

** "Landsmeet Champion": During the Landsmeet, Teyrn Loghain challenges the Warden to a duel, but you can instead name another champion from among your companions to fight him. [[CanineCompanion Dog]] will be rejected outright, while any other choice will provoke a number of reactions from [=NPCs=]. Furthermore, while most companions will leave Loghain's fate up to you after defeating him, Alistair will always slay him out of hand because he [[ArchNemesis hates him so much]].

* SketchySuccessor: Regardless of who the player picks as King Endrin Aeducan's successor for Orzammar's throne, he will be a considerably worse ruler than Endrin. Also, Maric Theirin is remembered as having been a much better King of Ferelden than his son Cailan. [[spoiler:Subverted with Alistair if you "harden" his personality and make him King; in that case, he becomes a much better ruler than anyone expected, perhaps on par with his dad.]]

* RememberTheNewGuy: At the beginning of ''Return to Ostagar'' the narration informs you that you recognize Elric Maraigne as part of Cailan's guard. You couldn't have done so yourself, since he doesn't appear in the base game.
