* '''Double Subverted''': [[TheChessmaster Emperor Evulz expected it]], and had already [[OutGambitted calculated it is more beneficial to him]] to lull Albert into a false sense of security, have him [[UnwittingPawn use it to weed out]] [[TheStarscream more rebellious elements of his army]], then grab it afterwards.

** The sword was cursed and backfired on Emperor Evulz just as he started to use it.



** The party killed that minion in the process of taking the sword before the EldritchAbomination even appeared.
** Albert mocked Emperor Evulz while waving a ring that neutralize the curse in laughter. Evulz takes the ring and equips it.



* '''Averted''': Albert fights off Evulz's minions, thus keeping the sword.

* '''Subverted''': Emperor Evulz's minions steal the sword, but it turns out Albert [[BatmanGambit has prepared a fake double and let them steal the fake]], giving him at least a week until Evulz sees through the ruse, while having the original safe in his sheath.

* '''Deconstructed''': Albert has a massive HeroicBSOD upon learning that all their efforts just made the situation worse. It severely shakes his faith in himself and their chances of defeating the Emperor, and he has to rebuild his confidence before they can move on.
* '''Reconstructed''': However, this also makes him more determined to defeat the Emperor once and for all.



* '''Enforced''': ExecutiveMeddling ordered this thrown in as DiabolusExMachina, to make the game "serious".

* '''Played For Laughs:''' The quest for the sword is played out in Monty Python-esque style with heroes bickering about how it's going to be stolen, while Emperor Evulz is comically inept and has to rely on even dumber heroes to further his schemes.
* '''Played For Drama:''' In trying to stop Emperor Evulz, Albert accidentally helps bring about the sort of destruction he was trying to ''prevent''.

** Alternately, letting Emperor Evulz steal the sword is a very bad thing, since Albert and his companions have no way of slaying Emperor Evulz's hordes. However, one of Emperor Evulz's minions is destined to destroy the EldritchAbomination that plans to devour the world. If Albert and his party had destroyed Emperor Evulz's minions before the EldritchAbomination could be stopped, they would have left the world utterly defenseless against the EldritchAbomination. Albert and his companions still have to get the sword back, since Emperor Evulz still has every intention of conquering the world, but at least now their world won't be a demonic god's supper.

* '''Downplayed''': Removing the sword releases some chaotic spirits that begin to wreak minor havoc in a nearby village. This results in an optional sidequest to destroy the spirits you accidentally released.

* '''Straight''': Our hero [[TheHero Albert]] and his {{Nakama}} find the [[SwordOfPlotAdvancement Dragon Breaker Blade]], a legendary sword said to be capable of slaying the draconic beasts controlled by [[EvilOverlord Emperor Evulz]]. However, finding the sword and bringing it out into the open gives Emperor Evulz a chance to steal the blade, meaning that one of the biggest threats to his power is now safely under ''his'' control.

** Having the hero responsible for the EldritchAbomination's appearance provides him with a good and believable motivation to risk life against such a mighty foe.
