* CoOpMultiplayer / GoodVersusEvil: The "Lightbearers" alternate ending in the ''Blood Moon'' expansion changes the nature of the normally free-for-all game into a cooperative one, where every player must choose a character of good alignment. The players cannot fight each other, and instead can assist each other in combat against the forces of evil, freely exchange items, and work together to win the game as a group [[RaceAgainstTheClock before time runs out]].

''Talisman'' is a fantasy adventure themed board game originally released in 1983 by Creator/GamesWorkshop. The game is played by moving one of a variety of archetypal fantasy characters around the board, amassing power and treasure that is used to challenge the increasingly more deadly inner regions until one character claims the "Crown of Command"... killing all other player characters in the process. In the years following its initial run, the game has received numerous revisions and edition changes, some of which have added alternate play-styles, characters, and victory conditions. The fourth and most current edition was released in 2008 by Fantasy Flight Games.

* DisablityImmunity: A variation: in the computer version, the ninja's inability to have followers prevents him from having several negative followers, such as the deathstalker or the gremlin.

Added DiffLines:

*ConservationOfNinjutsu: Implied with the Ninja, who cannot get followers, likely as a snide reference to the trope.
** Inverted/averted with most monsters, who add their strength together if there are multiples on one space. and
**Inverted with the gladiator, who can bring followers into battle with him, making him stronger with more followers. Also averted with classes like the necromancer who can charm/enslave monsters and make them work for them, but they can only use one at a time and so don't benefit as sharply as the gladiator.

* AlchemyIsMagic: The standard use of alchemy in ''{{Talisman}}'' is to turn objects into gold by casting an alchemy spell, using the alchemist follower, or visiting the alchemist in the City board space. The Alchemist player character expands on this with the ability to turn gold into potions, which can then be used to heal, gain fate tokens, or draw spell cards. (While nothing prevents the Alchemist PC from casting the alchemy spell and using the alchemist follower all while visiting the alchemist in the City, there is no added benefit for doing so outside of player amusement.)
