Added DiffLines:

** Mephasm. He's literally Neeshka's grandfather, and he's one of the more powerful Balors.


Added DiffLines:

** Bruenor is the one to kill Matron Baenre, but in the process his face is scarred so badly that he'll never grow a beard again (Beards being rather significant to dwarven culture, to the point that Chief remarks that they'd be willing to give up other parts of their anatomy before they give up their beards).


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: Diadect, previously only mentioned in computer log entries made nearly one hundred thousand years ago, is a major supporting character here. Note that this was done ''before'' the revelations of Halo 4, where he also made an appearance (though in a very different role).]]

Added DiffLines:

** Otherwise averted in the mortal realm, as other than a little light-hearted ribbing, elves and dwarves alike are seen fighting together against the Drow and the Demogorgon's forces.


Added DiffLines:

* HumansAreWarriors: UNSC tech (which is purely human-designed) is one of the key multiplying factors for the story, and human characters make up roughly half the armies working for the side of good.

Added DiffLines:

** In a slightly earlier scene, the Dwarven pantheon and Helm call out the Elves (and the rest of the gods) for, despite knowing that bad times were coming, not coming to the aid of the dwarves in retaking their hall from the drow.
** For the most part, the light-alligned elves are barely mentioned, and are seen working together with the humans and their allies. Their Dark counterparts? Not so much. They are subjected to massive curbstomps, while their way of life is shown to be cruel, barbaric, and self-destructive, which is even lampshaded by Lolth herself after she faces Helm.

Added DiffLines:

** Similarly, the reason he's not constantly conspiring against his superiors as so many of his kin do is because he's quite happy with his current position- any higher and the responsibilities and pressure would be too much, any lower and he wouldn't have enough power.

* GodOfEvil: Several, but Lolth and Demogorgon are the most prominent.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilLawyerJoke: When an irritated Ao once again notices how good Helm is at skirting the letter of his decrees while coming dangerously close to violating their spirit, he wonders why he hasn't extended his sphere of influence to more suitable realms... like becoming the god of lawyers.

* CanonImmigrant: Numerous characters from all over the Forgotten Realms' expanded universe make appearances, not least of whom are [[NeverwinterNights2 Neeshka]] and [[Literature/TheDarkElfTrilogy Drizzt]], who share main character status with Chief and the crew.

Added DiffLines:

* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: As a result of the Time of Trials, Ao changes things so that the gods are dependent on the belief of their followers, so as to give them ''consequences'' for pulling off schemes.
** Gruumsh is one of the first to have this demonstrated- the massive orc losses taken when the Drow attempt to retake Mithril Hall cause him to feel week, and enter into a sort of "Power Loss Spiral:" the more orcs die, the less his power is. And the less powerful he is, the less the orcs will believe in him, which leads to him losing power, which leads to less orcs believing in him...
** Lolth also suffers from this after [[spoiler: The nuking of Menzobarranzen]]. Her race was never very numerous, and with the culture that she herself implemented, weakness is to be despised... and she is very weak...


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewYouElves: Corellon states arrogantly that he doesn't believe that the Flood would pose his people a threat, so Helm gives him memories of the Flood, and points out that forests aren't really a great defense against a highly infectious, FTL-capable parasite.

Added DiffLines:

* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: A very mild example, but whenever the Gravemind spoke to the Chief, it left a kind of "Psychic Echo." Those who weren't there can't hear the voice, but certain people are more... sensitive, to say the least, as Neeshka nearly has a fit by exposure to the video.
