* WorldHalfEmpty: While it's not as bad as the CrapsackWorld presented in ''TheWitcher'', Ferelden is pretty well crammed with bastards and injustice.

* RulingFamilyMassacre: The Human Noble [[MultipleGameOpenings origin]] concerns the massacre of the Cousland family (teyrns/dukes of the largest province of [[TheKingdom Ferelden]]) by a treacherous vassal who usurps their titles and lands. Only the heir apparent, who is away fighting Darkspawn at the time, and his younger sibling (the PlayerCharacter), who is saved by the Grey Wardens, survive--but should the player [[SchrodingersPlayerCharacter pick another origin]], the Cousland family is strongly implied to have been completely wiped out (Fergus is lost on patrol, and the Warden never escapes the castle).

** If the traditionalist Lord Harrowmont is made king of Orzammar then he does nothing to combat the decline of dwarven society. Maintaining the status quo. Prince Bhelen who seems like an obvious case of AmbitionIsEvil meanwhile, makes numerous progressive changes. Angering the nobility but greatly improving dwarven society as a whole.
** Helping the dwarven priest establish a chantry in Orzammar ends with its destruction and his death. As citizen are outraged by him spreading foreign beliefs. The incident catches the larger chantry's attention leading them to consider a holy war against the city.

Added DiffLines:

* VideoGameDelegationPenalty: The game allows you to take control of any member of your current party. The (up to three) characters not actively under your control will be controlled by the AI. You set orders for them to follow using the Tactics system, which enables you to automate how your characters respond to situations in combat. This allows you to setup your party members to work together efficiently without needing constant direction. However, even with very specific Tactics set, the AI-controlled characters may still not do what you want or need in a given situation. If you need them to do something very specific, your best bet is to switch to controlling that character manually and executing the action yourself.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: The epilogue shows that a number of side quests and decisions have unintended consequences.
** After helping end the Blight the Dalish elves are given lands to settle. However tensions quickly arise with an independent elven state forming in the middle of human lands. Things deteriorate even faster if the Warden allies with the werewolves who are given those lands instead.

* UselessUsefulNonCombatAbilities: Trap-making easily comes off as this way. The best way to use traps are to either [[SaveScumming repeatedly tap the quicksave and quickload so you know good places to put them]], or [[GuideDangIt have prior knowledge of the game]]. They aren't entirely ''useless'', just situational.

*** This is also the only origin to play this trope straight. The mage can be either a human or an elf, with the human being from the noble Amell family out of Kirkwall while the elf is from the Surana family out of a variable poor area of Ferelden. Whichever one of the two the player chooses, there is no indication that the other is present at Kinloch Hold.
