** And then in ''Dreamfall'' April ''herself'' ends up being called Raven. Since the most appropriate word, "kruk", was already taken and "wrona" would still sound rather improper for a positive character, Raven was turned into "Kruczowłosa", which essentially means "The Crow-Haired One".

* DubInducedPlotHole: A very bizzare and complicated problem aroused in the Polish translation, being essentialy a form of spillover from that of the original game:
** In ''The Longest Journey'' Crow is render into Polish as Kruk, a word that is actually more often associated with a raven. It technically wasn't a mistake on the translator's part as quite a few Polish dictionaries point out that the word "kruk" is acceptable for both ravens and crows alike, however it is a widely held belief that the only correct translations for "raven" and "crow" in Polish are "kruk" and "wrona" respetively. The problem is, the word "wrona", that would probably be best here, is not only feminine but also has a definitely nasty feel to it, much like, say, cockroach has in English. And so, probably to shelter themselves from some of the fans, the translator actually modified April's journal to make it clear that while she is ''aware'' that Crow isn't actually, well, a crow, she named him so nonetheless.

* {{Fauxreigner}}: The electronics seller in New Port looks and acts like a stereotypical "ancient Chinese merchant", as Zoë gets to know him better he eventually drops the act and admits that is it only a sales gimmick.

* ArtisticLicenseLinguistics: In the prologue, the Tibetan monks communicate... in Mandarin Chinese. Which actually sort of makes sense, since Tibet is a part of China as of 2013, and the official language of China ''is'' Mandarin Chinese. Still, Tibetan people are more likely to communicate with one another and their white friend in their mother tongue.
** Unfortunately, based on what Brian said in The Longest Journey, the Tibet sequence takes place in the 1930's, when Tibet was independent.

Another {{oddly named|Sequel}} {{episodic|Game}} sequel, ''VideoGame/DreamfallChapters'', started releasing in October 2014. It'll tie some of the numerous loose ends that were LeftHanging after ''Dreamfall'' back together and give an end to Zoë's story arc, but won't be the long-awaited GrandFinale of the saga. The latter will have to wait until what Tørnquist has called the true ''The Longest Journey 2'' (a.k.a. ''VideoGame/TheLongestJourneyHome'').
