* TheAtoner: Tarnum, of ''Heroes Chronicles''. In the first episode, ''Warlords of the Wasteland'', he commits many atrocities (killing one of his two sisters unknowingly, and nearly killing the other as well) in his conquest of the wizard kingdom. He was later killed by Rion Gryphonheart. The Ancestors judged him unworthy to enter paradise and forced him to return as an immortal to redeem himself. He does this through seven later chapters, even rescuing Rion's daughter from the underworld in ''Conquest of the Underworld''. He is completely redeemed and judged worthy to enter paradise during the Might Campaign of ''Heroes IV'', but refused to enter, remaining a protector for his tribe in the new world.

* CowardlyMooks:
** PreExistingEncounters that have absolutely no chance of defeating your army will typically run away rather than face you. You may choose to let them leave peacefully or [[VideogameCrueltyPotential hunt them down for extra XP]].
** Goblins in the fifth game have the 'cowardly' trait, meaning they will almost always run away when hit with a melee attack rather than {{Counter Attack}}ing, unless they are backed into a corner, surrounded or otherwise unable to escape.

* InfinityPlusOneSword: The third game (and the ''Heroes Chronicles'' spinoff campaigns) introduce three powerful swords that are treated as Infinity Plus One Swords in the story. The ''Armageddon's Blade'' expansion has the [[TitleDrop titular]] Armageddon's Blade, which in game gives nice boost to most of the wielder's stats and allows them cast Armageddon at expert level even if they couldn't use it normally, and it doesn't affect your own troops like it does normally, meaning you just us Armageddon ForMassiveDamage on the enemy without hurting your own army. ''The Shadow of Death'' has the Angelic Alliance, a combination of several other artifacts which combined give +21 to attack, defense, power, and knowledge, more than any other combo, allows for mixing of standard troops with neutrals without moral penalties, and casts prayer at the start of each battle. The last ''Heroes Chronicles'' campaign revolves around the Sword of Frost. The Armageddon's Blade and the Sword of Frost were so powerful that they ''destroyed the world'' when they struck each other.

** This gets ridiculous with the ''[[GameBreaker Cloak of the Undead King]]'' combination artifact in ''III'': a skilled enough necromancer can pull off a ZergRush... with '''liches'''. Yes, tier 5 units.

* DragonsAreDivine: Dragons are a major part of the religion of Ashan, setting of some of the ''Heroes Of Might And Magic'' games. The dragon Asha is worshipped as the Goddess of Order creator of the world, while her brother, Urgash the [[DragonsAreDemonic dragon of Chaos]], is despised as a SatanicArchetype. When the two fought one another during the Mythic Age, Asha was seriously wounded, so she spawned six more dragons (representing the six elements, fire, water, earth, air, light and darkness) to protect the world if Urgash should reappear, and now slumbers within one of the planet's moons, regaining her strength.

''IV'', much like ''Armageddon's Blade'', features standalone campaigns, one for each town. The Life campaign follows the efforts of the knight Lysander to preserve the nation he founded and rules when a usurper king emerges, claiming to be the last survivor of the Gryphonheart bloodline and igniting a civil war. The Might campaign centers around Warjak, a young barbarian and the son of Tarnum, as he tries to rally the barbarians and save them from extinction warring against one another (as well as concluding the story of Tarnum, the protagonist from Heroes Chronicles). The Order campaign chronicles the journey of Emilia Nighthaven as she rises from being a peasant to becoming a sorceress-queen, and eventually fights a war to stop a KnightTemplar from [[{{Instrumentality}} controlling the wills of every creature in the world]]. The Preserve campaign tells the tale of Elwin and Shaera, a love story with an [[OurElvesAreBetter Elvish]] civil war when the druid protagonist, Elwin, rebels against the elven lord who has mind-controlled his lover Shaera into marrying him. The Chaos campaign explores the adventures of Tawni Balfour, a pirate who rises from inheriting her father's ship to becoming a Pirate Queen of an entire ocean. And finally, the Death campaign tells the tale of Gauldoth Half-Dead, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a half-dead man]] [[AntiHero forced to play savior of the world]] after he becomes the lord of an undead kingdom, only to find that the God of Death that manipulated the Armageddon that struck his previous world has similar plans for his new world. There are two expansion packs, which features even more heroes' tales, and these expansion packs have a GrandFinale scenarios for each pack, uniting the heroes of each scenarios for one last bang. The original 6 heroes didn't get such GrandFinale, but a custom map made for the fifth game below features the closest thing you can get for it, although only Lysander, Emilia Nighthaven and Gauldoth Half-Dead (and characters from those scenarios) are present.

* CastFromExperiencePoints: In ''V: Tribes of the East'', Zehir was granted by a Djinn the ability to summon fourth a flying town using a spell. It was only when he first summoned said town that he realizes the spell costs experience points to use instead of conventional mana (justifying BagOfSpilling when it comes to his levels).
