* DevelopersForesight: When playing as a vampire, the player must, of course, occasionally feed on blood to keep certain innate powers. When feeding on the blood of a recently deceased mammal, the game will tell you that "This warm blood tastes delicious!" When feeding on reptiles and other such creatures that aren't warm-blooded, there will be no such message about the blood's warmth.

* SuicidalOverconfidence: * Historically, this trope was mostly averted. Monsters that were at low HP would become afraid and flee, possibly firing ranged attacks at you in their retreat. However, this was judged as violating the RuleOfFun and removed, so now the game plays the trope straight. The only monster "fleeing" that still exists is for [[BearsAreBadNews bears]], who when afraid will promptly use BerserkerRage and come right back at you.

* SuicidalOverconfidence: Almost any creature in Crawl will attack the player, regardless of the odds. Why yes, Mr. Level 1 Goblin, it is a good idea for you to recklessly charge the level 27 Demigod Fighter with artifact armor and a +9 flaming demon sword. [[SarcasmMode That's sure to end well for you.]]

* FaustianRebellion: It is entirely possible to abandon your god if you no longer find them useful, and/or to choose a new god. This will usually make the god you abandoned [[EvilIsNotAToy angry at you]]; however, it is also entirely possible to [[BadAss survive their wrath until it runs out]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hell}}: There are three hell branches, each more terrifying than the last. The majority of the Runes of Zot can be found in these places, though it's possible to get the Orb without visiting any of them if you don't want a fifteen-rune victory.
** Hell proper is actually the least of these. It's a domain consisting of the Vestibule of Hell and four sub-branches; each branch is seven levels deep and contains a rune at the bottom. It's a very barren place with little loot and with no monsters that leave edible corpses, and a mystical force that constantly batters at adventurers travelling there, similar to divine retribution.
** The Abyss is this crossed with HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace. The realm of Lugonu the Unformed is a series of five endless, constantly-shifting planes that serve as a garbage dump for banished creatures and a native home for [[EldritchAbomination eldritch things]]. There's one rune to be found there, though its location is ever-changing until you find it.
** Finally, Pandemonium is another infinite realm, where each level is different and you can never revisit a level. It's the home of the greatest demons, and ''each level'' is guarded by a mighty demon lord; while there's infinite experience and loot to be found here, it's the most dangerous area in the game, and grinding really isn't worth it. There are five runes here. Paradoxically, this is also the home realm of the Shining One, and one level is dedicated to his holy fortress. (It's still not a safe place to be.)

** Skalds start with skills in the melee weapon of their choice and self-buff spells. Reavers get (well, ''got''; they were [[DummiedOut de-implemented]] after 0.8) blasting spells instead. Transmuters frequently shapeshift and beat monsters down with their newfound natural weapons.

Transmuters frequently shapeshift and beat monsters down with their newfound natural weapons. Enchanters and Arcane Marksmen debuff their enemies before attacking with weapons. And Warpers can fight, but they've also got an array of Translocations with which to escape sticky situations and control the battlefield.

Added DiffLines:

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: In this case, "evil" is defined by what you are, not what you do. The gods of Good are implacable enemies of demons and undead, and while demonspawn and undead [=PCs=] can ''act'' however one likes, the Good Gods will refuse any worship from them, and the powers of Zin and the Shining One are still naturally harmful to them.

* AppealToForce: One of the best options a would-be Messiah of Beogh has for recruiting orcs is to kick their asses or kill other orcs who don't follow him. Beogh especially approves if you kill enemy priests, even if they're also priests of Beogh; that's how orcs deal with heresy.

** The ziggurat, a side portal of [[ArcNumber 27]] wide-open floors jam-packed with enemies from almost everywhere in the game. Generally speaking, the survivability and destructive might required to clear the increasingly-difficult floors is more than enough to complete even the extended endgame with. They can be repeatedly chained, and have received constant updates to increase in population and smarten-up monster selection with each completed ziggurat- as of 0.19, [[UpToEleven just a few ziggurats can produce end floors with dozens of orbs of fire]] and [[BeyondTheImpossible the end results of a dozen can throw out hundreds of Pandemonium lords]].

** Pretty much the entire extended endgame is this. In order to win, you only need three Runes of Zot, which you can get fairly easily from the two Lair branches and the Vaults or the Abyss. It's only completionists and people who want a challenge who go after the others.

* JokeCharacter: A literal example: for the week following 2013's April Fool's Day, the developers introduced a new class into the playable beta version of the next release. Jesters spawn in with a jester cap, quarterstaff of chaos, and a stack of cream pies that can either be eaten or be [[PieInTheFace thrown at foes to blind them.]] Of course, several people promptly [[LethalJokeCharacter beat the game with Jesters]]. Some of them even managed to [[OneHundredPercentCompletion get all 15 runes]] while doing so.

** Chaos Knights begin the game sworn to Xom, MadGod of chaos and ItAmusedMe. Xom is as likely to screw you over as he is to help you, and a Chaos Knight gets no benefits aside from being Xom's plaything.
