* AdiposeRex: Just take a look at the Goblin King's belly, seriously take a look at it. He sure loves his pies.



* AllJustADream: [[spoiler: The most frightening scene in the game involves Alia and Am Shaegar sitting on the bed (possibly after a sexual intercourse). Camera cuts to Alia's face, which suddenly transforms into ghoul-like creature from the crypt. The next second the scene repeats itsels, but without her transformation.]]

* BlingBlingBang. ''Nastily'' subverted. [[spoiler: With a secret spell you can summon an extremely tough warrior demoness, armed with a {{BFS}} and clad in what looks golden Ylside armor, who attacks you. After you kill her, in a fair fight or using some trick, she explodes, but you can pick up her sword and a random piece of her armor (helmet, leggings of chestplate) appears in your inventory. However, those pieces are breakable, have no model (they become invisible if you put them on), and have poor armor class compared to Ylside armor. While the leggings have decent armor class (the second largest, actually), they're still half as strong as the Ylside ones and not worth the fight. and the chest plate, probably due to mistake, is only as good as the plain chestplate (''four'' times worse than Ylside). At least the golden helmet plays it straight, as it's the strongest helmet in the game.]]

* DamselInDistress: Alia, though only episodically, and Shany.



* DifficultButAwesome. Drawing runes with the mouse to cast spells requires practice (especially in combat), but looks magnificent.

* DistressedDamsel: Alia, though only episodically, and Shany.
* DropInNemesis. [[spoiler: In dwarven mines you are hunted by Black Beast, a NighInvulnerable OneHitKill MightyGlacier PuzzleBoss. You have to activate a steam hammer, lure the beast under it by whatever means and smash it. This, howewer, just slows it down, but now you can move into other room and throw a lever, which releases another lever, which, it turn, opens the LavaPit so you can lure the monster there. Hell, Black Beast is so slow, so why bother with whole hammer thing? Let's go for the lava already! Well, go and try. Once you throw the lever, the damn creature starts ''running'', effectively going NighInvulnerable OneHitKill LightningBruiser. Naturally, [[OhCrap your chances of survival plummet]].]] Also, see KarmicDeath below.

* KarlMarxHatesYourGuts. Subverted twice: At the beginning, goblins don't trade jewels because trolls, who do the mining work, went on strike. So, you can buy cheap "goblin mine" stock certificates, then improve the situation with mines yourself and sell them back at double cost as their price rises. Later, if you bring a book about commerce and finance to a troll king, he'll screw the goblins and sell jewels himself, and you, as a friend of trolls, will have a HUGE discount. Otherwise played stright. Also subverted if you have high Intuition, but it's completely useless in any other situation.
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler: The key for the outer world door is posessed by King Lunshire and can't be stolen. Opening the door is completely unnesessary and has no quest related, so in order to open it you must murder the king (who is actually nice and tragic person) to satisfy your curiosity. However, if you open the door, a powerful gust of wind [[NonStandardGameOver freezes you solid]] and dead.]]
