* EstablishingSeriesMoment: You venture into Olen's dream, slay the nightmare and then [[spoiler: he dies anyway.]] You then go to the mine to rescue the cave-in survivors and [[spoiler: find everyone inside is already dead or dying.]] These events firmly establish that no, [[AnyoneCanDie this is not a game where the hero will be able to save everyone.]]

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: What makes Melzas such a formidable foe. Knowing that Alundra has been saving the villagers of Inoa from their nightmares, he eventually stages a trap to try and lure Alundra into somebody's nightmare so that the Murgg can break in to the victim's house and kill him while he's helpless in the real world. After discovering Sybil's prediction that leads to the creation of the Holy Sword, as well as figuring out that the dead villagers are inspiring Jess to create weapons for Alundra, [[spoiler:he not only has Ronan do whatever he can to keep Lutas (who's death leads to the Holy Sword's creation) alive, but eventually kill Sybill and Jess so that the sword can't be forged in the first place.]] Finally, near the end of the game, he stages another trap by kidnapping Burgus and putting him to sleep, forcing Alundra to enter the dreams of his twin brother Nestus to locate and teleport to him, since twins are linked by dreams, [[spoiler:which Melzas takes advantage of to launch a surprise attack on Inoa while Alundra is away by sending a hoard of Murgg through the same link, causing them to pop out of Nestus and raze Inoa to the ground.]]

* SavePoint: The Diary, like the one in Jess's house. (Unlike {{Landstalker}}, you don't need to take them to a priest this time.) Dungeons frequently include a purple-glowing warp tile that takes you to an isolated room with a diary and HP/MP recovery points, and the island's PortalNetwork contains one as well.

* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: [[GoneHorriblyWrong This went horribly wrong]. [[spoiler:Repeatedly,]] in fact, but [[spoiler:primarily in the creation of Melzas in the back-story.]]

* LuckBasedMission: The roulette minigame, which you have to win five consecutive rounds of to get 100% completion - '''Four times'''. Even if you understand the algorithm behind the minigame, the odds of guessing the correct answer ''once'' is 40% on average.

* KillEmAll: ''Alundra'' is an epitome of this trope. Its story revolves around villagers being killed through their dreams, and the titular dreamwalker Alundra trying to save them. However, [[spoiler: he fails to save most of them, and by the end of the game, most of the cast has been killed off.]]

* DarkFantasy: It has it's roots in here, ReligionOfEvil, innocents dying left and right, and ovwerall it's a crappy place to live in. Interestingly, the music is upbeat. But other than that, the game is really depressing.
