* PragmaticVillainy: Emperor Daevus is willing to spare Valiantide prisoners and negotiate with his enemies in order to build [[VillainWithGoodPublicity good PR]] and make them let their guards down.

Unfortunately for him, [[spoiler:Altair and the Invincible 4 care less about winning the war efficiently and more about causing enough bloodshed to revive Expirius.]]

** Overlaps with TragicMonster. [[spoiler:Nergal didn't join Expirius out of his own free will and even decapitated himself rather than serve the EvilOverlord, only to be brought back as an undead slave.

The level cap system is scrapped in version 3.30, but there's an option to lower the EXP and encounter rate as the party gains levels.



* WhatMeasureIsAMook: During their infiltration in Tyr-Anon Castle, Sammy and Azrael mercilessly slaughter all Tyr-Anox soldiers that they encounter. However, when they defeat General Gerovitus (a named character), they decide to spare him because it would be "bad" to kill someone who's unable to defend himself. Justified for Azrael, since he's already influenced by [[spoiler:Expirius and Entropy]]. Not so much for Sammy and Glen, who are ''very easily'' convinced to spare the man who's a threat to the entire continent (and swears he will have his renvenge). And then, when they leave the castle, they continue to slaughter the Tyr-Anox soldiers.
