* SettlingTheFrontier: The colonization gameplay mechanics. The game really stresses that colonies are always built with a lot of hit-and-miss effort and over a number of years and decades. [[ShownTheirWork Notably]], even if your colony reaches enough of a population to be considered a new province of your country, it only becomes a fully integrated province after 20-50 years.

** In EU4, colonies are relatively fast, but due to colonist limits, you can only colonize ''at all'' if you have the right ideas and the number of colonies you can be working on at a time is limited. Furthermore, if you're a European or Asian power, your colonies are not ''you'', they're a special form of vassal, and you'll make your money off their trade and their gold mines while you wait for them to inevitably declare independence from you. And finally, current colonial nations have trouble setting up their own colonies unless and until they become independent, at which point this trope arrives in full force.

* TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed: For the Nahuatl religion in ''El Dorado'', the world is always on the brink of destruction and needs to be saved by HumanSacrifice. The point of reforming the religion is to get rid of the gods' constant thirst for human lives (and the incessant warfare it leads to).

features.
** ''Mare Nostrum,'' released in April 2016, primarily reworks naval combat and espionage. It also substantially expands the cultural diversity and number of provinces in Ireland and Africa, adds the "[[CorruptBureaucrat corruption]]" mechanic for inefficiently-run nations, and introduces the State/Territory divide as another wrinkle when it comes to expanding.

* BreakMeter: Most battles are won not by destroying every single unit the enemy's army has, but by lowering their morale so they flee the battlefield.

Added DiffLines:

** Rebel units may be weak compared to your army, but when you have low stability and high overextension they pop up ALL THE TIME. They slowly drain your army, deplete your reserves and destroy your economy by ocupying vast portions of your territory. They make you send your forces from one corner of your land to the other, and once you supress one uprising and leave, they rise once again. Eventually you might end up feeling compassion for guys like Al-Assad who have to actually deal with this on a regular basis in the real world, and hating protests alltogether.

** Some of the Random New World province names in EU4, such as [[Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian Cymmeria]] and [[Literature/KublaKhan Xanadu]], are drawn from other works of fiction. (Other cases, such as "Gitgud," are drawn from [[MemeticMutation memes.]])

** After a patch, this is replaced by a [[TheCrusades Holy War]] Casus Belli on heathens (either neighbors or just all heathens, depending on your national decisions and government), which expires in the midgame. In ''Europa Universalis IV'' the expiration date was eventually removed.

* PurposefullyOverpowered: In ''[=EU4=]'', Nations that did very well historically in this time period tend to have more powerful national ideas to aid them in that goal, in addition to whatever advantages they receive from their starting position of resources. Prussia, for example, has national ideas that guarantee its land forces will be the most powerful on the continent if they're allowed to form, and expanding empires like the Ottomans and Russia have ideas that lets them throw massive armies into the fray to conquer and core wast swathes of land easily.
