* BilingualBonus: There's a bit of a pun in the Elven racial benefits. Ljosalfar ranged units get the "Dextrous" advantage, while Svartalfar recon units get "[[ASinisterClue Sinister]]."

* BlackAndGreyMorality: There are a few genuinely virtuous leaders (The Elohim leaders, for example) but this is the overall feeling. Good and Neutral characters are frequently AntiHero flavoured, while evil characters, with the possible exceptions of [[OnlySaneMan Mahala]] and Sheelba leave [[KickTheDog little doubt they live up to the title]].

** The conflict between the Elves has largely become this. Faeryl Viconia, the Winter Queen, has turned to the worship of Esus and her Svartalfar have become thieves, kidnappers and murderers. However, while the Summer Queen Arendel Phaedra is as pure-hearted as ever, she is not well-suited to leading the defense of the Ljosalfar in the harsh world of the Age of Rebirth, and her lieutenants are the ruthlessly Neutral Amelanchier and Thessa, who will do anything to protect their forests and care nothing for the suffering of men or the burning of the world outside.



* DiskOneNuke: In earlier games, civs with an archmage hero coming reasonably early could [[MindRape Dominate]] [[{{Cult}} Sons of the Inferno]], who have good strength and [[GameBreaker can summon Fire Elementals]]. It is now significantly harder to do this, but still possible.

* SaveTheWorldClimax: The Armageddon Counter is usually detrimental to the world. However, when the clock is close enough to midnight, the good guys get access to some endgame material designed for cancelling the apocalypse. Followers of the Runes of Kilmorph (especially the Luchuirp, though anyone can do it) can build the awe-inspiring Mithril Golem (which is unaffected by the tides of death and disease that plague the world during the end times, and can strike down any one of the HorsemenOfTheApocalypse by itself), while those who have the Righteousness technology (the philosophical underpinnings of The Order religion) can cast the ritual of Glory Everlasting and wipe out ''every single undead and demon on the map''.

* FantasyGunControl: Averted, though gunpowder is a very late-game tech and not all civilizations have access to it.

** Played literaly with the Callabim who are barred from gunpowder units. While not explicitly stated perhaps because said technology is too dangerous for their cattle to have.

* PerspectiveFlip: The civilopedia entries for [[OurElvesAreBetter Arendel Phaedra]] and [[TheFairFolk Faeryl Viconia]] are set up like this, with the same events and dialogue but with each leader getting their own narration. [[AllLovingHero Arendel]] apparently sees the event as a friendly chat with her sister by her favorite window, while Faeryl is [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder suppressing the urge]] to [[DestinationDefenestration throw her sister through that window.]]

* ShoutOut: ''Many''. The Grigori cities are named after locations from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. The Lanun cities include [[Creator/HPLovecraft Innsmouth and Dunwich]]. You can summon a trio of giants named [[Film/TheThreeStooges Larry, Curly, and Moe]]. One of the [[{{Pirate}} Lanun]] heroes is [[VideoGame/MonkeyIsland Guybrush Threepwood]]. The Tower of Mastery victory is a homage to VideoGame/MasterOfMagic. The original score list of historical leaders is replaced by a list of fantasy characters, from Cthulhu to Tweedledee. Many references to Creator/MontyPython. Hyborem's model is [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} a Bloodthirster]].
** And, according to WordOfGod, a large part of the Great People names are [[SignificantAnagram anagrams]] of [[Franchise/TheMuppets Muppets names]].
