* ControllableHelplessness: In ''Sorcerer'' it is possible for the protagonist to end up in the Chamber of Living Death. There, the protagonist will be horribly torn apart and devoured by hideous parasites, only to not die but regenerate, over and over again, being unable to do anything about it because 'Your agony is too great to concentrate on such an action'.

** If you [[http://www.csd.uwo.ca/Infocom/Invisiclues/spellbreaker/chapter8/TheStringRoom2/ fail the copy protection]] in ''Spellbreaker'', the game lies to you and tells you that you passed it. Many hours later, at the very [[http://www.csd.uwo.ca/Infocom/Invisiclues/spellbreaker/chapter15/TheSandRoom3/ end of the game]], a vital object will explode and kill you when you try to use it, with no warning as to why, what you did wrong, or when.

** Spellbreaker is this for the trilogy itself. [[spoiler:The ultimate source of the problems is InherentInTheSystem, since any sufficiently powerful sorcerer will have an evil shadow; and even if you were to win, it would only be a matter of time until one managed to destroy everything. Of course, you ''don't'' even manage to win cleanly, leading to a DownerEnding.]]

* VancianMagicVancianMagic: Spells have to be memorized each time you want to cast them, although apparently you can "master" a spell to retain it in your mind permanently.

* WizardNeedsFoodBadly: ''Enchanter'' requires you to eat regularly, or else die of starvation. Players found this so annoying that very early in ''Sorcerer'' you obtain a magical potion that enables you to go without food and water almost indefinitely -- but only almost, and there is no sustenance otherwise available in the game, effectively giving the game a time limit. ''Spellbreaker'' [[AvertedTrope dispenses with starvation mechanics entirely]].
** The time limit in ''Sorcerer'' is 8,000 turns after drinking the potion, enough time to finish the game...and restart and finish again...and possibly again. It effectively doesn't exist at all.
