* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: Just about every Orc in the game is hostile, with the exception their Council representative, Kroxy.
** Same for the LizardFolk; Goemoe is the only friendly one you'll encounter.

** Polymorph. It's supposed to have a short duration, yet it doesn't run out. [[GoodBadBug Ever]]. And on at least one boss, if you use it on them, they'll actually show up in a later cutscene, still polymorphed.

* AGodAmI: [[spoiler: Duke Janus]].
* AnEconomyIsYou
* ARealManIsAKiller: The Orcs don't consider their young ones mature, until their first kill.



* TheChosenOne: You are The Marked One, who is the only one who can stand up to the forces of evil. However, there are two other Marked Ones, and they are just as likely to be the ones to fight the battle. [[spoiler:Until they're both killed off. Guess it's up to you after all.]] There is also The Divine One, an even more important title, which Duke Janus claims. [[spoiler:No, that's you too.]]



* CuttingOffTheBranches: Later in ''Divinity II'', its revealed that the canon version of the Divine One is a paladin named Lucian.



* AnEconomyIsYou



* AGodAmI: [[spoiler: Duke Janus]].



* TheLawOfConservationOfDetail: Thoroughly averted. The game is littered with realistic junk and books about all sorts of topics. Also many, many NPC characters can be asked, helped or killed without much plot-relevance.

* TheVamp: Josephina who is also [[{{ThatOneBoss}} much more powerful]] then the other members of the QuirkyMinibossSquad.
* UselessUsefulSpell: Averted with the Freeze spell, which works at pretty much any enemy except two or three types, and the final boss is not immune to it, either.

* WarpWhistle: Two teleporter pyramid stones. You can drop one on the ground and carry another with you to enable instant recall to a location, or set down the second stone to make a two-way portal.

Set in the StandardFantasySetting of Rivellon, ''Divine Divinity'' [[FollowTheLeader follows a very similar gameplay style and graphical style]] to the popular ''{{VideoGame/Diablo}}'', but mixes in ''VideoGame/BaldursGate''-style dialog tree conversations with humorous, sometimes lampshade-hanging dialog. The game has a linear main plot, but exposes you to a well-sized WideOpenSandbox full of little side-quests and secrets to find in the wilderness.
