The pawns in the game are referred to as "players", so to avoid confusion, the real players are referred to as [[InsistentTerminology "Coaches"]].

** The sequel manages to reign in some of the impossible skill combinations of the first, while managing to turn this UpToEleven in other ways. Prepare to see multiple instances per match of AI teams carrying out what would take miraculous luck to do even ''once'' for a human player.

* TheAce: Griff Oberwald, Star Blitzer and captain of the Reikland Reavers, is said to be the most talented human to ever pick up a Blood Bowl ball with a plethora of awards, good looks and a massive fan following. Griff’s game rules represent this by giving him the best overall stats and skills of any human player but at the cost of being the second most expensive individual Star Player in the game.

* FantasticRacism: Jim and Bob in the PC game have a derogatory comment on practically every team (including Jim ragging on ogres and Bob ragging on vampires, both of which annoys the other), but they seem especially disdainful of elves.
** In the sequel, this hatred of elves only applies to Bob.

elves. In the sequel, this hatred of elves only applies to Bob.Bob.
** Chaos Pact and Underworld include this as a gameplay mechanic: The teams are made up of a RagtagBunchOfMisfits of various races who hate each other, so whenever you want to pass the ball between races you need to roll the dice first to see if they're willing to pass the ball in the first place.

* UpToEleven: Takes every bit of American league and college football (along with rugby) and amps them up. Thought football was violent? Bring in the chainsaws and cannibalism. No one likes a player? Murder them. Think coaches are really old? Have them as literal zombies. Think certain football stars are prissy, overpaid primadonnas? Have an entire team of them that don't even ''play''. Hear about the bounty programs NFL teams would illegally use to knock out rival players from a season (or even life)? How about having it a staple of the game, and replace "knock out" with more murder.

Hear all those analogies about how football was a lesser kind of war/coaches are generals, et cetera? Turn football into a wargame. Think the NFL's a huge megacorporation that enthralls a nation? Have it as a literal God. No one likes a player? Murder them. Think coaches are really old? Have them as literal zombies. Think certain football stars are prissy, overpaid primadonnas? Have an entire team of them that don't even ''play''.''refuse to play''. Hear about the bounty programs NFL teams would illegally use to knock out rival players from a season (or even life)?
