** ''VideoGame/GuildWars2'' plays with this, since the max level is 80 (just like ''WorldOfWarcraft : Wrath Of The Lich King'' at the time the decision was made), but is not a major part of how the game works. [[PlayerVersusPLayer PvP]] scales the levels of all players and unlocks all skills, for instance. And then there's the fact that each level requires approximately the same amount of time.

* StarterVillain: Despite the Charr invasion being the primary driving force that kicks off the plot of Prophecies (by inflicting the Searing on Ascalon, bringing about the rise of the White Mantle in Kryta, and driving Vizier Khilbron to cause the cataclysm that destroys Orr), the Charr completely vanish from the plot once you flee Ascalon to the Shiverpeaks and don't appear again until Eye of the North.



** Some players take the view that certain female Mesmer outfits, with their short skirts and thigh-length boots, are also examples of this trope. The "Elite Enchanter" female mesmer outfit, for example, looks much more like something one would wear in the bedroom than on the battlefield. The female version of the Krytan set has an [[TheisTitallationTheory open jacket over a sheer top]], the jacket seems to stay in place with [[MagicSkirt magic]].

** The 'War In Kryta' update added a character called Courier Falken who fights using brawling moves, including a unique move called [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Falken Punch]]. And sometimes he sings this funny song: ''[[SpiderMan Delivery man, delivery man, does whatever a courier can. Transports packages, any size. Brushes off Mantle, just like flies. Oh yeah, here comes the delivery man.]]''

*** Elona is a reference to a genus of snail(what's even more interesting is that Guild Wars was not the first to use the snail's name as a ShoutOut but the game {{Elona}} also referenced the snail).
