** Boombox items made everyone in a certain radius dance. The "Realms Roll" boombox made all the dancers look... [[RickRoll familiar]]... and the Halloween "Chiller" boombox had [[Music/MichaelJackson its own recognizable dance steps]]. Then there's a (presumably Christmas-themed, we don't have confirmation) boombox that makes EverybodyDoTheEndlessLoop - [[ACharlieBrownChristmas you know the one]].

Said to be a casual ''WorldOfWarcraft'', ''Free Realms'' hit over one million players 18 days after it was launched and by its one-year anniversary had over 10 million players. Sony had since released versions for the Mac and {{PlayStation 3}}, but in January of 2014 SOE announced its closure, citing dropping player numbers and the difficulty of monetizing younger players. The servers were shut down on March 31st of that year. However, there are a few fan efforts to revive the game.

* SceneryPorn: A lot of the in-game area was just rolling meadows and hills, and it all looked ''awesome''.

* EvilAdvisor: Geoffrey to Queen Valerian- he was the one who drove away Princess Lavender and caused her to become Darkthorne, exiled the Chugawugs and nearly started a war between Sanctuary and Briarwood; he poisoned the King and Queen and killed them before the events of the game.

* TheHighQueen: Queen Valerian.



* RebelliousPrincess: Princess Lavender, who was falsely blamed for the murder of her parents, the previous King and Queen; she retreated with half the Heartseed to Briarwood, forming a duplicate Royal Palace and took the name of ''Darkthorne''.

* CrypticBackgroundReference: There were references throughout the game to lands outside Sacred Grove such as Black Forest, Lavender Coast, Silver Hills and Sunstone Valley- where other races had retreated to after the GreatOffscreenWar. There are even roads which lead to them which have been blocked off. Only Sunstone Valley was opened up before the game was shut down- it was deserts and mesas.

* GoingPostal: An unusual inversion- instead of mailmen shooting everybody, there were a group of semi-anarchists who wanted to destory Sacred Grove's postal system for unclear reasons.
* GreatOffscreenWar: The story of "The Great Unbinding" was told at the Memorial Caverns in Sanctuary- and it's a doozy. [[GoldenAge Once, Sacred Grove was ruled over the by the Gleam Council, which kept the peace.]] But some members were not happy with the directions of things, so [[EvilCounterpart they split off and formed a rival consortium, the Gloam Council]]. The Gloam managed to build a magical object of immense power, which let them perform ''the Binding''- where [[MindControl everyone's magic would come under their control]] and [[HiveMind the Gloam could control everyone]]. [[NoSell But a few heroes of the era weren't affected]], and they banded together to destroy the artifact. But the artifact's destruction caused a massive WorldWreckingWave known as ''The Unbinding'', so [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere many of the races retreated to other lands]]. After the Unbinding and the subsequent ''Cataclysm'', the pixie race had retreated to underground caves, thinking there was no life above anymore- until Changelings entered the caves. A druidess queen named Ayani then dared to venture aboveground, and [[AfterTheEnd found the land desolate]]. Saddened at the loss of everything she remembered, she cried and cried, only for her tears to start a WorldHealingWave- and the other pixies helped to bring life back to the ground. And when Ayani passed on, she left behind the Heartseed- a massive seed left in the Lake of Tears, which in turn formed the mighty World Tree that serves as the Pixie's Royal Palace.

* MinusWorld: If you knew what you're doing, you could get past the barriers to places like Lavender Coast pretty easily. There was mostly just flat land out there, but you could occasionally find weird things like the edge of Seaside's ocean, which abruptly ends.

* OurOgresAreHungrier: In Free Realms they were called Chugawugs. Originally their race acted as guards for the Pixie royal family but when the prior King and Queen were murdered they were exile and individually decided to follow their own paths.

* SigilSpam: The "tree" icon (representing the World Tree, the seat of power for the pixies, located in the heart of Sanctuary) could be found all over the place- as the icon on a Windows taskbar, to the Daily Wheel, to even an in-game cafe (which kinda evoked Starbucks).
