* VillainousBreakdown: In the backstory, King Leoric is [[DemonicPossession possessed]] by [[BigBad Diablo]] and effectively starts having a Villainous Breakdown while he's still a good guy. He doesn't remain good for long when that happens. He starts getting increasingly paranoid and less sane, until finally when Diablo leaves him, unable to take over completely, he's a raving madman who has to be killed by his own most loyal knights.

When Lazarus takes his son as a more fitting vessel for Diablo, it goes even more downhill from there - he randomly tortures and kills villagers he suspects of abducting the prince and finally has to be killed by his own most loyal knights.



* WakeUpCallBoss: TheButcher, who is an extremely tough opponent for the part of the game he appears in, being [[LightningBruiser very fast and capable of dealing huge amounts of damage in close combat.]] He quickly becomes ThatOneBoss to lower level characters because the only way to beat him safely depends on the randomly-generated terrain spawning in such a fashion to let you plink him to death at range. Thankfully, he only has a 50% chance of appearing, and drops a nifty unique axe when he finally goes down.

* LimitedUseMagicalDevice: All spells are available in one-use scroll form as well as in SpellBook form, which teaches the spell to the reader permanently. The scrolls have lower requirements, making them more usable for the non-mage classes.

* {{Badass}}: Any character who dives into hell and makes it his/her own blood soaked parking lot deserves special mention. Especially [[OneManArmy single handed]].

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: ''Black Death'' in ''Diablo'', and their ability to ''permanently'' lower your health by [[LostForever one point]] causes even experienced players to avoid them like the plague. The fact that they can crash the game when dealing a finishing blow to the player in earlier versions makes it worse.

Added DiffLines:

* TheArmiesOfHeaven: In the series ''all'' angels are warriors, and they spend all of their time either fighting demons or planning to fight demons. As well, they all seem to be identical except for the five special snowflakes on the [[CouncilOfAngels Angiris Council]] and their lieutenants. At least, this is how it was, until the creation of Sanctuary threw a wrench in the Eternal Conflict, leaving the angels to mostly mope about the Heavens in trepidation.

** Likewise, next in line of those bosses is King Leoric the Skeleton King. He also returns in ''III'' and rumors has it that he'll be next to be included in ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm''. He's also popular enough by fandom to get included in ''VideoGame/DefenseOfTheAncients'' and Blizzard cared enough for his image, leading to the lawsuit against Valve and the latter ends up having to change their Skeleton King into [[VideoGame/{{Dota 2}} Wraith King.]]

* DungeonBasedEconomy: Played with and ultimately inverted. An otherwise normal village was made capital of its country because its local church housed one of the lords of Hell in a secret catacomb. The Prime Evil gradually corrupted the king, who bent the kingdom to ruin, but for a while, the town did well by selling to adventurers venturing into the church to fight demons. by the sequels, however, the demons had overrun the town and killed everyone.
