* Most of the ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory'' games require you to play UnwittingPawn to the villain's scheme before you can put an end to that scheme. In the second game, this is actually in force by your enemy, who needs "A hero from the north" to fulfill a prophecy, and so send the elementals to test you[[note]]In addition to providing a test of your abilities, it's also designed to get you to a specific place, at a specific time, with a ''specific title'' (Hero). Not knowing that you're a hero from Spielburg, the BigBad plots to ''make you'' a hero, so that you can fulfill a prophecy for him. The only reason he fails is because he didn't know the full, real prophecy[[/note]]. In the third game, you're trying to avert a war between the Leopardmen and the Tribal People, but the only way to discover who's trying to incite the war is to let the war actually happen[[note]]Though you don't know that at the time. The majority of the game is spent trying to get a peace conference between the two groups, and when you ultimately succeed, the demons behind the plot are forced to intervene directly, giving evidence of their previously-unconfirmed involvement and setting you on the path to confront them[[/note]]. In the fourth game, the BigBad plots to unleash an otherworldly Old God that was partially summoned years ago (and the partial summoning is responsible for the sorry state of the surrounding countryside), and to permanently banish the Old God, the hero has to (unwittingly) finish summoning it[[note]]Though in this case, the reason the Old God must be summoned is because the only person capable of banishing it completely was trapped with the Old God in a partial banishment, preventing either from gaining an advantage[[/note]].

** The spell also removes a large number of Doom Tokens (The Ancient One's "health" in the Final Battle) depending on how many trophies are spent on the casting. Combining enough trophies with an ability to automatically cast a spell can lead to a FlawlessVictory by killing the Ancient One before the first combat round.
