** However, it is later played straight. If the party actually ''did'' die, the rest of the guild should be smart enough to assume the party died after a week or so of being in the labyrinth, and attempt to collect the deceased members' items and continue on. Since there is no official main character, there isn't a reason for the backup members to take their place.

* GrailInTheGarbage: An early sidequest in ''IV'', tasks you with recovering armor used as collateral in a bargain; the merchant agreed since the armor was supposedly the work lesser genius. When retrieved, it's pretty much unusable, and the merchant will angrily write it off. A quick visit to the local blacksmith reveals that the armor was indeed created by said master, and is repaired for free!

* SoundtrackDissonance: Compared to the BonusDungeon themes of the other games in the series, the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nj2O2zsleRo Forbidden Forest]] from ''Heroes of Lagaard'' comes across as ''too peaceful'' for a dungeon where the enemies will happily destroy you in seconds.

* EasierThanEasy: Picnic. ''The Fafnir Knight'' in particular, to the point where the game might as well be playing itself.[[note]]Fafnir Knight's Picnic difficulty has you do '''300%''' damage to enemies (compared to Standard difficulty) and take only 25% damage from them. In comparison, The Millennium Girl's modifiers are 133% and 33%.[[/note]]

** Want the king grimoires in ''The Millennium Girl''? If you're not insanely lucky, then get the number values on your guild card to match up, and take on a boss enemy. Even then, that only gives you a 30% chance of getting the grimoire.

** Want the king grimoires King Grimoires in ''The Millennium Girl''? If you're not insanely lucky, then make certain numbers on your Guild Card (and your Grimoire stone total and your number of Guild Cards) end with 7. 5 or more instances of this will ''ensure'' you get the number values on your guild card to match up, and take on a boss enemy.

** Owl-Eye and similar skills like Sight Formula, which are designed to reveal nearby [=FOEs=] become this in the Untold games, due to the reworked mapping system having a sight range that lets you see nearby, actively moving [=FOEs=].



** ''Untold 2's'' Flame Demon, the game's counterpart to ''Lagaard''s' Hellion. Only this time around, there's a couple twists. Firstly, the boss's HP is four times as much as it's counterpart. Secondly, it uses '''Kingly Fire''', a flame based attack which can send your entire party into single digits unless you prep with skills like Fire Wall. Thirdly, in the lead-up to using '''Kingly Fire''', it summons backup in the form of Flame Cubes, which will mop up your party by self-destructing after the fire neutralizing skills have been used up by the Boss. Only careful prep work and strategic thinking that the party hasn't really needed to use before this will see the party through.
* WeaponOfChoice: Each character class has one or two weapon types they can use, and some weapons can be used only by certain classes. In ''The Drowned City'', two weapon types, [[KnifeNut knives]] and [[ThrowTheBookAtThem books]], can be used by anyone, although ninjas can benefit more from knives.
