Added DiffLines:

* AntiSmotherLoveTalk: If you take your [[StaticRoleExchangeableCharacter sole surviving sibling]] to the Deep Roads expedition, your mother will beg you to leave them at home, since she cannot bear to lose both of you. You can then give her the reassurance that everything will be fine and that you are both responsible adults, persuading her to relent. [[spoiler:Naturally, if both of you go to the Deep Roads, your sibling contracts the Taint and dies (or, under very specific circumstances, becomes a Grey Warden--a Fate Worse Than Death by many standards), so your mother ''was'' right.]]

* TakeYourTime: Played both straight and averted. Side and Companion quests generally [[LostForever disappear]] when you go to from act to act. However, within a single year? The looming threat of a poisoned district, dangerous blood mages on the loose, or an insane serial killer [[spoiler: kidnapping your mother]]? It's fine, feel free to wander the Dalish camp or take that [[FetchQuest random item back to that random NPC.]] The safety of hundreds can wait.
** Very much averted with the Act II Fenris quest "A Bitter Pill." Fenris will get mad (i.e. rivalry) if you try to do anything else other than continue with the quest, and if you persist in ignoring his pleas, he'll [[spoiler: leave to handle things himself and will get killed]].

Added DiffLines:

** Fenris is remarkably cordial towards Bethany, which stands out given his hostility towards pretty much all other mages except for a befriended Hawke.

** However, it can also be played straight (or averted again) with Merrill and Isabela, the remaining female party members, who can be recruited in Act I after the prologue. Whether the trope is played straight or averted depends on which one is recruited first and which one, if either, is romanced.

** Most noticeably (and jarringly, if you didn't find/read the Codex explaining it) Qunari now all have horns, and many seem substantially larger and more brutish-looking than good ol' Sten did. Some even speculate that Sten is only Qunari in the sense of "follower of the Qun," rather than being of the Qunari species proper.

* AdultFear:
** Having your home and everything you built over last ten years destroyed and then watch one of your children die protecting you.
*** And potentially losing another child to the Deep Roads.
** It's clear that one of Leandra's biggest fears is to lose her children and husband because they are mages. She has already seen her cousin go through the same thing. She loses her husband a few years prior to the game, loses one child in the escape from Lothering, and then [[spoiler:loses another after the Deep Roads expedition, either to the Blight, the Grey Wardens, or the Templars, depending on the circumstances]].
** The situation when [[spoiler: Leandra is kidnapped is bone-chilling, mostly because of how it plays out. You first find out she is missing from panicked Gamlen and go looking for her, following a trail of '''fresh blood'''. When you finally find her she is not quite dead, either, but rather turned into something like Franchise/{{Frankenstein}}'s monster. Nightmares all around for poor Hawke.]]

* DynamicEntry: The Vendetta skill from the Duelist specialization fulfills all three criteria for this trope. It's a FlashStep behind the opponent with a rather large range, and can hit ForMassiveDamage even without upgrades.

* GambitRoulette: Lampshaded. [[spoiler: Flemeth's amulet revives her. She actually didn't think you'd go through with it!]]

* AmazonianBeauty: Aveline fulfills this trope nicely. Additionally, the concept art for female Qunari had some fans ''begging'' Bioware to let one or two be romance-able. Tall, muscular, with incredibly strong profiles, they fit the "Amazon" look to a tee. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Unfortunately, they don't appear in the game.]] Doubly unfortunately, Qunari women cannot be professional warriors (though they can be SecretPolice, and like all Qunari, they are allowed and expected to fight as militia in the event of an attack).

* DueToTheDead: Sebastian puts Wesley's name on the Kirkwall Chantry's memorial wall for Aveline. [[spoiler: He later does this for Leandra after "All That Remains".]]

to:

* DueToTheDead: Wesley will commend the soul of either Bethany or Carver, depending on who is killed by the ogre in the prologue. Especially poignant if it's Bethany, since she's an apostate and he's a Templar.
