* AllThereInTheManual: Among other things, it's revealed that Leonard was absent from the massacre that killed his companions because [[spoiler:he was off in the woods having sex with a young boy.]] [[{{Squick}} What the hell, Cavia?!]]
* AlternateHistory: Surprisingly enough, the recent Drakengard timeline from the 10th anniversary box reveals that the world of Drakengard shared our world's history up until 856 A.D., when an event named the 'Great Apocalypse' happened. After the events of Drakengard 2 in A.D. 1117, the world starts going down on a path similar to our world's history again, though with certain changes such as 'Black Friday' being known as 'Black Thursday', the black death plague being caused by the red eye sickness instead, amongst others. [[spoiler:Then Ending E happens in this world, carrying over from the last AlternateUniverse of the first game.]]

''Drakengard'' is the first game in Cavia's ''Franchise/{{Drakengard}}'' series released in 2003, notable for its combination of a multilayered, surreal plot and excellent atmosphere with rather [[FatalFlaw weak, repetitive gameplay.]] The gameplay switches between HackAndSlash and [[SimulationGame Flight Sim]], so one could think of it as a mixture of ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' and a sandbox version of ''VideoGame/PanzerDragoon''. It takes place in a [[HeroicFantasy Heroic]]/LowFantasy medieval setting, and it follows AntiHero [[MeaningfulName Caim]] on a mission to destroy [[TheEmpire an evil empire]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin (aptly named "the Empire")]] while also protecting his sister Furiae. Furiae is called "the Goddess" because she is [[CosmicKeystone part of four seals that protect the world from an unknown danger]] -- she is a living seal, and her death would [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt herald chaos in the world.]] Caim is joined initially on his quest by Inuart, [[TwoGuysAndAGirl his best friend and Furiae's betrothed]] before she became the Goddess, and [[OptionalPartyMember four other characters,]] the circumstances of each being varied and [[DysfunctionJunction always tragic.]]

* DestructibleProjectiles: Attacks from enemy mages and archers can be blocked by striking them with an attack, although the precise timing for this can be difficult to accomplish when fending off swarms of other {{Mooks}} at the same time. Some projectiles (like the bounty hunters' knives) can even be deflected back at the thrower ForMassiveDamage.

* MookCommander: In the first game, enemies with a yellow dot next to their LifeMeter are designated squad commanders (some of which may be Elite Mooks). The more commanders that are present in a given fight, the more aggressively they (and other Mooks) attack.
