* EmpireWithADarkSecret: Ami suspected the SCE of being this after learning that all major government buildings there was an Oracle Tower - a structure that closely resembles the temple Zarekos was using in his bid to become a god.
** The Light Gods have jossed the theory that the idea that the towers are evil in their own right or that they have been used for evil purposes by the SCE, but they refuse to explain their original purpose in Mercury's hearing, for fear of giving her any ideas.

Ami recovers from her ordeal and prepares to travel to the Avatar Islands. [[BreatherEpisode Shorter than either of the other previous arcs]]; Arc III stresses the subplots and introduces many of the major power players in the ''VideoGame/DungeonKeeper'' Universe. The continued happenings in the Anime/SailorMoon universe are more important in this arc than any other, detailing the emerging Dark Kingdom civil war. The Arc reaches it's conclusion upon the discovery of an apparently inhabited island during pre-invasion recon...

Following Ami's [[spoiler:defeat of the Avatar, and subsequent title of Empress]], the game has changed. Now she is not only [[spoiler:gained a legitimate title that even the Light World recognizes]], but done what was previously thought impossible, defeated [[spoiler:the Avatar]] in personal combat. Needless to say, this brings all the wrong kinds of attention, and soon Ami finds a representative of the dark God Crowned Death on her doorstep. Ami is left with an ominous deadline: in a matter of days Crowned Death with execute some eight thousand innocents in a bloody ritual using the Avatar's Mantle...

* FromBadToWorse: Poor Ami can never catch a break. Mostly because she keeps pissing off ever-more-powerful foes. Once she starts pissing off just one deity she promptly gets ''[[SerialEscalation multiple]]'' [[GodOfEvil Gods]] annoyed with her. The author has said that this is largely because if she wasn't constantly in over her head she'd rapidly become unstoppable.

* HollywoodTactics: Inverted. Especially evident in the Avatar Island Battles and the Battle of Dreadfog Island. Zarekos uses a three-pronged assault, flanking maneuvers, and ambushes. In the Battle of Dreadfog Island, Crowned Death's forces use the sun to blind Mercury's forces and approach under cover of a diversion. Later in the same battle, Mercury uses harrassment and area-denial to rob Keeper Clairmonte of the benefits offered by a Dungeon's home turf advantage.
* IAmSpartacus: Played straight [[spoiler: by the Villain]], in that [[spoiler: Mukrezar's plan with the magic rings revolves around whoever is wearing them turning into copies of himself, confusing people as to where Mukrezar really is, or who is the ''real'' Mukrezar]].

* MindControlDevice: The dungeon hearts do this to a minor degree with Keeper minions. It's used as an explanation for why BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil in the ''VideoGame/DungeonKeeper'' setting itself, as most minions can't easily break the bonds the Dungeon Heart places on them.

* NighInvulnerability: Wards can radically reduce the effectiveness of offensive spells, and even stop physical blows that might otherwise prove lethal. Enough of them can make a spellcaster exceptionally difficult to harm.
** Mercury's ice golems could be a lesser example. While they are harmed by magic and weapons, they are far more resilient than fleshy soldiers, as their bodies simply freeze over any wounds. Given access to enough water, they become nearly indestructible, which Mercury takes full advantage of for intimidation when possessing them.



** Surfacers are often horrified when impaling Ami's ice-simulacra fails to do much more than annoy her. Using glamour to make them match her true form, and even bleed, helps sell the injuries as believable, terrifying the opposition as the Dark Empress shrugs off telling strikes.



** King Albrecht's council has this reaction when they learn of details regarding how the Dark Empress defeated [[GodOfEvil Crowned Death's]] [[EldritchAbomination Lesser Aspect]]. [[spoiler:She ate it]].
