* BlindIdiotTranslation: It's not as bad as [[EdnaAndHarveyTheBreakout certain other games by the same publisher]], but the game features many awkward lines due to too-literal translation from German.

* AllThereInTheManual: This game has a ton of off-hand references to ''TheDarkEye'', without most of the context you'd get from reading the tabletop game's rulebooks.

** Although said giant, the titular Satinav, was ''not'' a mortal, but either a TDE counterpart to a Titan (as in Myth/GreekMythology), one of the Primal Dragons (effectively demigods) or even the thirteenth Demon Prince, who "switched allegiance". All three theories are represented in-universe and among fans, and neither has been explicitly confirmed. What is clear is that he's not a mere mortal, but that only serves to emphasize the point - if even such beings cannot fight fate, who can?

** Inanimate objects, plants, animals, and the like are sometimes referred to with gendered pronouns (as they would be in German): for instance, one character refers to a harp as "she" at one point.
** Individual words are too literally translated as well. ''Wasserspiel'', an old word for a fancy fountain, leads to confusion in the translation when a character refers to a fountain as "some water games".

Added DiffLines:

* MysticalWaif: Nuri. She's the only known fairy in Andergast, and maybe all of Aventuria, which is why the Seer needs her for his evil plan. Meeting her, and realizing that he has to protect her, serves as the CallToAdventure for Geron. In addition to the power to repair broken things, she has several magical abilities. Her bright orange clothing contrasts in both color and style with what most of the rest of the characters are wearing. And she ends up as Geron's love interest.
