*** Really, Xom could be seen as a subversion. Xom is a MadGod who does whatever, but it's not because Xom hates you. Even if Xom becomes bored beyond belief, Xom will still happily accept you back as a favorite toy if you start to be entertaining again.

Even if you end up under penance with Xom, there's a 10% chance he'll still do something good for you when deciding to hand out a "punishment".

* DishingOutDirt: Earth elementalists get some highly effective attack spells that range from blasting grit at your enemies to literally blowing up parts of the dungeon.

** Subverted with the Storm spells, as they appear to be impractical due to their high level and hunger cost. Smart players can lower/bypass the costs for casting them and it can be [[GameBreaker well worth the effort to master one]] in the [[BonusLevelOfHell late-game areas]].

* AllYourPowersCombined: The eight Rings of the Octopus King and the Trident of the Octopus King. Each ring is a slightly improved version of mundane rings found in the dungeon that adds minor boosts to your stats. However, each ring also adds +2 to the enchantment of the trident. As an octopode (the only race capable of wearing all the rings), it's theoretically possible to have a ''+24'' trident while having +8 to AC, EV, Strength, Intelligence, and Dexterity, as well as increased stealth, increased spellcasting success, extra MP, the ability to see invisible, and resistance to [[LifeDrain negative energy]], acid, fire, and ice. In practice, however, it's highly unlikely you'll find more than one or two of these items in a single game.

** If Sigmund is the boss in charge of teaching new players to fear spellcasters, then Grinder is the one in charge of teaching new players to be wary of using their Polymorph Other wands recklessly. While polymorphing spellcasters can often be a good way of removing their dangerous spells, Grinder can only become another demon, most of which can still cast spells while also being more of a physical threat than the tiny shadow imp. Common Grinder polymorphs include PercentDamageAttack spamming Tormentors and {{Hellfire}} throwing Hellions. He's even been known to transform into an ungodly-dangerous [[{{Hellhound}} Hell]][[WarElephants ephant]].

* WarmUpBoss: Most second-floor uniques that are not Sigmund fall into this category. There's Jessica, an apprentice caster who is so frail that all but the squishiest mages can easily beat to death. Terence is somewhat beefier than Jessica, but he's still only dangerous if he spawns with a good weapon or attack wand.

** Natasha is a felid who is pretty easy to take down; she does come back from death a couple of times, but most likely she'll be even easier to defeat the next times you face her.
** Robin comes with a horde of goblins and hobgoblins, and can be a nuisance; however, as long as you carefully pick off her support, she's easy to kill.

** Grinder the shadow imp is described as having the InformedFlaw of being inefficient. There's little inefficient about him, however - his battle strategy of "paralyze enemy, then spam pain spells until they die" is very efficient and effective indeed.

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Ijyb is a weakling goblin unique who claims dominion over whatever dungeon level she appears on. While it is technically accurate to refer to the dungeon floors as "levels", it can also be interpreted in the context of video game levels.
-->'''Ijyb:''' "Level is mine! All mine!"

** In previous versions, this was very much a thing, however; metabolism typically correlated with size, so larger races needed to eat more frequently.
