* NoodleImplements: When you ask Josephine to reminisce about Leliana during their younger more adventurous days, she talks about how Leliana always cooked up zany schemes. She warns you to run if you see Leliana with a twine ball, a measuring stick, and a handkerchief.

* WeAreStrugglingTogether: The people of Thedas are having ''serious'' cooperation problems, moreso than in previous ''Dragon Age'' games. Templars and mages are going at it, as usual, but there's more. The Chantry's various different organizations break from each other following the Breach opening on top of the Conclave and killing everyone there; the Templars, the sword arm of the Chantry, break off to do their own thing, and the Seekers have left as well. Grey Wardens have disappeared almost completely for mysterious Grey Warden reasons, Orlais has been plunged into civil war, and so on. The Inquisition, therefore, are the only people who've got their act together enough to take on the real problems like the gigantic hole in the sky. A lot of the conflict is [[DivideAndConquer being stirred up by the bad guys deliberately]], but the foundations already existed.

** Related to the above is fanaticism = bad. We have the templars and their belief they are just, the mages tired of being oppressed, the Inquisition and their efforts to set things right, the Dailish and their customs to be respected on pain of death, the Qunari and their views of executing allies or be ex-cummunicated, and then we get to specific characters: it's [[TheLongList a long list.]]

** When you are braving the uncontrolled ancient elven superweapon at the Plains' Citadelle du Corbeau, the weapon makes a loud droning noise when it's firing (on top of everything subject to its beam bursting into flame), and even when its aim is just meandering aimlessly it has an ominous growling hum.

* TheAtoner: Very easy to miss, but in the Exalted Plains you can find the song describing what had ''really'' happened to the elven warrior Lindiranae in her LastStand against a human knight Ser Brandis the Silver Helm during the Second Exalted March. Turns out the knight did not want to fight her and even offered her to yield, but she (understandably) refused. She was then killed by a random arrow, and Ser Brandis, catching her as she fell, realized what humans had done (they almost wiped out the entire elven race) and was filled with remorse. He took Lindiranae's sword Evanura (and possibly her body) and buried it in the Emerald Graves, after which he was never seen again. It is strongly hinted that he either began WalkingtheEarth in order to atone or may have killed himself.
