* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: Lots of books describe the Wizard as gathering his cloak around him as he casts a spell; in one book it gets burnt and it even says the Wizard can't work his magic without it.
* DeusExitMachina: Whichever character the reader wasn't controlling tended to get knocked out or trapped somehow as soon as danger appeared to explain why the duo would die if the player's efforts failed.

* LoopholeAbuse: The Wizard's most directly offensive spell, Merlin's Fire, can't be cast on living things. In one book (during the Warrior's path) he gets around this by first using another spell on his opponent to turn them into a flammable object, ''then'' using Merlin's fire on them.

The success of spells or battles were determined by such methods as flipping a coin, what time of day the book was being read, or picking a random number. While this lent a somewhat bizarre feeling to the books at times, ''Wizards, Warriors and You'' lasted for 18 books.

* InventoryManagementPuzzle: The Warrior usually has the option of carrying three additional weapons with him along with his Sword of the Golden Lion. The trick is that in some titles, you need the correct weapons in order to advance or even win. [[spoiler: For example, in the Imposter King, if you're not carrying the Cutlass of Cornwall when the ghost of the Warrior's father visits you, he locks you in a room where you're eventually found and killed.]]

* TheFaceless: Even when he's shown with his visor up, the Warrior's face is never clearly seen in the entire series.

* PersonaNonGrata: During the Impostor King, both the Wizard and the Warrior are banished from the kingdom. They are also warned that if they have not left within one hour, they would get killed on sight. Guess what was one of the possible endings to this adventure.

* DinosaursAreDragons: Not in the sense that dinosaurs breathe fire (they do run into a dinosaur in one book, but it's just a regular dinosaur), but that in ''The Dragon Queen's Revenge'' the Wizard and Warrior fight an army of dragons that, according to the illustrations, are just t-rexes with wings.

* ThePowerOfFriendship: [[spoiler: In the Warrior's route through The Haunted Castle of Ravencurse, when they get up to the front gates an evil knight rushes out and knocks the Wizard unconscious. He claims only a magical mace inside the castle can hurt him. You can run and get the mace and have a hard fight on your hands. Or you can refuse to abandon your helpless companion, and such a display of loyalty vanquishes your mighty foe on the spot.]]
