* PatchworkMap: The world generator takes weather effects into account to always create a realistic map, though you can tweak it to make one on purpose. This trope does however apply to veins and clusters of metual ore for RuleOfFun and balance reasons.

** Something similar can happen to your dwarves at the hands of goblins. Sorry, that should be "at the hands of goblin ''wrestlers''".
** A ''basic'' Dwarf recruit who hasn't had time to go grab a weapon can still beat up kobolds so spectacularly that the kobold's left arm ends up in two pieces.

Added DiffLines:

* LiteralDisarming: This is a relatively common tactic among players; hacking off an opponent's hand deprives them of not only a weapon, but parrying capabilities, as well, leaving them open for a potentially fatal blow. [[RealityEnsues Or just leaving the option of having them bleed out.]]

* HandicappedBadass: [[SubsystemDamage Thanks to]] [[ChunkySalsaRule the combat system,]] anyone can become this including yourself in Adventurer Mode and your dwarves in Fortress Mode. All you need is a crutch and enough time to grind crutch walking and you are back up fighting against the best of them.

* MadArtist: Strange Moods causes dwarfs to produce something incredibly valuable, but defying any logic and sometimes laws of nature. Like a gold anvil or earring so engraved it would require nanotechnology to fit all this engravings on them.

* OhCrap: Since conversations in DF as of version 40 are now simulated in real time and recorded in the combat log, your military will do this alot when particularly badly pummelled. Or slightly pummelled. Or as soon as the enemy shows up. "Does it all end so quickly!", yes Urist [=McRecruit=] yes it does....

* EternalSexualFreedom: Gay marriage is in the game, and not seen as odd in-universe.
** This applied to animals as well, leading to breeding pairs that won't breed. [[Film/{{Gladiator}} "You sold me... queer giraffes!"]]

* AnimalWrongsGroup: Elves, but for trees (they still tame animals, and eat them if they need to survive.) They will be horribly offended when presented with anything made from wood or charcoal. They know nothing of metallurgy, so they can't tell steel made with charcoal apart from steel made with mined coal, so they'll take either. Any glass but green glass, however, needs wood ash to turn into pearlash, beds must be made of wood, and wood is the preferred material for bins, so elves are notoriously unpopular. Even a single wooden decoration in a craft will make them storm out of the trade depot and probably later send archers to your front gate by hundred. This doesn't mean, they can't make all of their crafts from wood, because [[GreenThumb they can shape them with magic without killing the tree]]. In earlier versions they'd even get offended if you tried to sell them [[{{Hypocrite}} their own wooden goods]]. The current "grown" wooden goods solved that issue.

* AncientTomb: The 2012 update added elaborate burial tombs where sentient creatures born and died during world generation will be interred. It makes for excellent DungeonCrawling in Adventure Mode, and a source for necromancers to summon their armies from in Fortress Mode.
