* OneOfUs: Hilariously inverted; in the behind-the-scenes feature for Soul Reaver 2, Creator/MichaelBell tells of how he had to actually buy a Playstation when Crystal Dynamics sent him a free copy of Soul Reaver. He was eager to see the entire game because of how he imagined it would turn out from the script, and because he used his talent for multiple voices to cover several characters. Being a non-gamer, he couldn't handle the platforming at all and spent two hours trying (and failing) to pass the platforming portion of the tutorial, only for his daughter to be so far beyond it the scene was unrecognizable when he came back from getting a beer out of the fridge.

** A project called [[http://nichegamer.net/2015/02/a-32-minute-video-of-legacy-of-kain-dead-sun-the-canceled-soul-reaver-successor/ Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun]] would've focused on the future of Nosgoth resulting from the end of ''Defiance'', starring a human whose soul (through some freak accident) winds up in control of the vampire that kills him. It was first delayed because the Playstation 3 couldn't handle it technically, but unfortunately, Square Enix cancelled it in 2012. ''[[ScrewedByTheNetwork When it was almost complete]].'' ''Nosgoth'' is actually based on what should have been ''Dead Sun'''s multiplayer mode.

* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: IGN had a hilariously bad case of this whenever they wrote previews of ''Soul Reaver'', referring to Raziel as Kain, the Soul Reaver as a LaserBlade, series producer Amy Hennig as Amy '''B'''ennig, etc.

** A human Umah was to appear in ''Defiance'', revealing that she was a priestess before being turned into a vampire.

* {{Vaporware}}: ''The Dark Prophecy'', a straight sequel in the style of ''Defiance'', which was in development for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 and would have presumably tied up all the loose ends in the franchise... but was never finished, most likely because of Amy Hennig, the head writer of the series after ''Blood Omen'', leaving Crystal Dynamics for Naughty Dog, as well as the death of Tony Jay, the voice of the Elder God. Not to mention the fact that ''Defiance'' didn't sell too well.

* HeyItsThatVoice: That's right, people. [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Minister Claude Frollo]] is the Elder God. Unless you know him better as [[ReBoot Megabyte]].
** And [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpacenine Constable Odo]] is Janos Audron.
** The series shares its voice director, Kris Zimmerman, with ''Franchise/MetalGear'', so several actors voice characters in both series.
*** Raziel is The Fear.
*** Moebius is The Fury.
*** Turel is The Pain.
*** Rahab is Colonel Volgin.
*** Defiance!Mortanius is Senator Armstrong.
*** Vorador is President Johnson.
** Simon Templeman is getting around the videogame scene as of late; even when ''Defiance'' was new, he wasn't in many other titles, and was usually just a random bit part when he ''was'' in something else. It can be ''jarring'' for anyone who played this series to hear him these days, particularly as Loghain in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', where he's doing the "Kain Voice" on a character with a lot of screen time.[[note]]Simon Templeman is primarily a theatre actor.[[/note]]
** Let's not forget [[WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}} Chaz Finster/Drew Pickles]], [[VideoGame/{{Diablo}} Nihlathak]], and [[VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} The Prophet]] as Raziel.
*** For the German version of Soul Reaver 2, we have Udo Schenk as Raziel... who also voiced [[Film/HarryPotter Voldemort]] from HP4's movie version onwards
** For Turel, we have [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX the]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2 voice]] of [[DissidiaFinalFantasy Jecht]].
** In the Italian dub of Defiance, Kain is [[EvilIsHammy hammly voiced]] by [[DragonBall Piccolo's]] voice actor, while the even [[LargeHam hammier]] Raziel is [[{{Naruto}} Deidara]]. Furthermore, the Elder God is [[OnePiece Sir Crocodile]], Mortanius is [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Barbossa]] and one of the female vampire hunter mooks is voiced by [[{{Naruto}} Sakura]]/[[DragonBall Bulma]]/[[OnePiece Nami]]'s voice actress.
** In the French dub, Kain is MorganFreeman and Raziel is Creator/KevinCostner. For real.
** [[VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance DON'T FUCK WITH THIS]] [[Creator/AlastairDuncan NECROMANCER]]!
** Their voices aren't particularly alike, but if you're aware of it you can hear the similarities: Ariel is voiced by [[Series/BreakingBad Skylar White]], of all people.



** And, of course, there's no telling how the series would have gone if Silicon Knights had gotten the rights to the series after ''Blood Omen'' instead of Crystal Dynamics.
