* ShoutOut: Some of the spell names; for instance, NITFOL, which lets you talk to the animals, is named after Creator/HughLofting, while YOMIN, which lets you mind-probe, is named after the late great Creator/LeonardNimoy, the actor who played Mr. Spock in the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' franchise.

** Well, actually you CAN escape the hellhound, prolonging the dream by retreating from the Twisted Forest, but you'll eventually get struck by lightning and wake up. Letting the hellhound kill you is still the most efficient way out of the nightmare.

* GuideDangIt: ''Spellbreaker'' was so hard the developers actually ''apologized'' and admitted most people would have to use a hint book to finish it.

* GuideDangIt: ''Spellbreaker'' was so hard the developers actually ''apologized'' and admitted most people would have to use a hint book to finish it. ''Spellbreaker'' is extremely linear in nature. If you're stuck on one puzzle, it's seldom possible to leave it and try another.

* LimitedUseMagicalDevice: In ''Enchanter'', spells are learned from scrolls that are copied into one's Spellbook: Copying that spell causes it to vanish.

* {{Foreign|Remake}} VideoGameRemake: In 1993, ten years after the original ''Enchanter'', Japanese software development company [=SystemSoft=] developed and published its [[http://www.mobygames.com/game/pc98/enchanter-wakaki-madshi-no-shiren remake for]] [[UsefulNotes/PC98 the PC-9801]] entitled ''Enchanter: Wakaki Madōshi no Shirén'' (インチャーンター ~若き魔導士の試練~; ''[[TheForeignSubtitle Enchanter: The Trial of the Young Sorcerer]]''). Unlike the original, this game has some of the most common verb commands ("look", "take", etc.) that can be accessed by pressing a corresponding button (the player still has to type the name of an object, though), and enchanced graphics for the unique background pictures on which the text is super-imposed.

* IncredibleShrinkingMan: In ''Spellbreaker'', the LISKON spell is very handy in shrinking a giant snake that's blocking your path. It can also come in handy if you want to get inside [[DownTheDrain an outflow pipe]] that contains the Change Cube.

** Some of the names would fit more into ItIsPronouncedTroPay, as in ''Sorcerer'' Jeearr is pronounced "JAY-ur" rather than "Jee-ARE" (which is ironic, since [[IronicName Jeearr's name is derived from the Hebrew word meaning "enlightenment"]]); and Helistar is pronounced "HEE-lie-star" rather than "HELL-lih-star".

** ''Spellbreaker'' has the same thing as in ''Enchanter'', but this time, a shadowy figure will give you another chance at the Boneyard if you die. But you have to be careful though: die too many times, and it's Game Over for you. Averted, however, in the Enchanter's Retreat (the place
for the Connectivity Cube): if you attempt to cast magic on Belboz, he'll imprison you below the earth and kill you, resulting in an instant Game Over (no ifs, ands, or buts).
