* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Varas, Manic's rival in Spirit Electrum, knows... well... everything. He knows about all the different runs, he knows who the ultimate BigBad is (and is, in fact, employed by him), and he understands that nothing that is happening is real; in fact, his stated goal is to win existence independent of the game world by destroying Manic. The fact that he blames Infernal Red's Manic for murdering his parents is just added incentive.

** Kit can justify out-of-universe knowledge via a few things, usually a PC Pokemon or another Pokemon simply using the internet. One of his Pokemon learned Surf but he'd already done the surfer motif, so it became an expert ''web''-surfer instead. Another Pokemon was from the future, thus having some future knowledge. Leafeon was a ''Film/{{Terminator}}'' parody, with all the technical abilities it implied.

* HeroKiller: There's always at least one random trainer in a region who's a common cause of death across Nuzlockes, most commonly trainers who use Pokemon with OHKO moves or Selfdestruct/Explosion. One of the most infamous though is ''Brains and Brawn Frank & Sly'' in X and Y, a pair most Nuzlockers are utterly ''terrified'' of. It's rare to see a Kalos Nuzlocke that doesn't have at least one death to them, in fact getting through them with only ''one'' death is considered ''lucky''. They're technically optional, but avoiding them means they might jump you later on while you're backtracking, when you least expect it...

''From Dusty''.

Der Gnizalb happens in a timeline where this never happened, which resulted in the Slugma's power growing exponentially, as it had no natural predators, and eventually Slugma [[spoiler:[[AGodAmI ascended to godhood]].]] This resulted in the events preceding Der Gnizalb.
