** ''Dragon Age II'' was originally going to be a GaidenGame called "''Dragon Age: Exodus,''" with the plot for what would later become ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' being planned for ''Dragon Age II''. Among other differences, Hawke was originally intended to be an NPC named [[TheVonTropeFamily Ulrich Von Hawke]] who was a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]] with a tendency for LickingTheBlade, thus explaining the blood splatter on the default character appearance.

** Those who lamented the fact that Varric was not a romance option could be either cheered or further disappointed by the statement that an extra scene was cut from the very end of the game. According to WordOfGod, they considered adding a scene after Cassandra releases Varric, in which he reunites with Hawke and reassures her/him that while he did tell the Seeker the whole story, "I didn't tell her anything about ''us''." The scene in question, however, was never actually crafted or voiced.

* BeamMeUpScotty: In fanfiction and on this very wiki, Varric's nickname for Fenris is often said to be "Broody", despite the fact that in game, he refers to him once as the "broody elf", and otherwise just calls him "Elf."

** "Dragon Effect", because this game borrows some elements (voiced protagonist, dialogue wheel, greater focus on action than tactics) from ''Franchise/MassEffect''.

* SimilarlyNamedWorks: The DLC ''The Exiled Prince'' shares its name with the second installment of the ''VideoGame/DarkParables'' hidden object games. They were even released within ten days of each other in 2011.

** Another one about Varric: The ending of the cancelled ''Exalted Marches'' would have resulted in the death of Varric. Obviously, with him as a returning party member in the sequel, this has been scrapped completely.

** The female Hawke is called Lady Hawke (some use it deliberately because of the movie, ''Film/{{Ladyhawke}}'') by some of the fanbase. "[[PunnyName Mike]]" is a favorite name for Male Hawke, for [[IncrediblyLamePun some reason]]...
* IKnewIt: A few fans noticed that Qunari, other than Sten, likely possessed horns in ''Origins'' and that trait might turn up in future installments. Surely enough, the Qunari faction were redesigned with horned heads being the norm in the sequel. The hints came from a lone codex entry and the darkspawn Ogres (once you learn where they come from). Behind the scenes, Sten was originally supposed to be horned, but they proved problematic when mapping them to helmets, so he lost them.

It had something to do with the fact this game was released in Japan by Spike and not by EA's Japanese branch, unlike their other games.[[/note]]
