-->'''Ryth:''' I could not care less about the Pact or what you are doing here. I haven't faced a WorthyOpponent in centuries, and I yearn for the glory of a duel for the fates."

Added DiffLines:

* GloryHound: The BonusBoss Ryth gives absolutely zero fucks about whatís going on with the gameís plot; he is only interested in fighting a WorthyOpponent like Siris for the sake of having an entertaining battle.

Added DiffLines:

* SkewedPriorities: [[spoiler:Ryth]] returns as a BonusBoss once again and, like in the last game, is completely unconcerned with the fact that the world will be destroyed by [[spoiler:Galath]] if he isnít stopped and delivers his usual InsaneTrollLogic to Siris to justify staying out of the conflict.
-->'''Siris:''' Donít you see whatís happening? Weíre fighting for the very survival of this world! [[EnemyMine Join us]]!
-->'''Ryth:''' [[ShutUpKirk I care nothing for your petty squables]]. Nothing else matters for me except [[GloryHound retaining my glory]]!

* EvilAllAlong: [[spoiler:The Worker of Secrets]], who Siris believed for the entire game was a benevolent man who would help set the world back in order, turns out to be a ManipulativeBastard who tricked Siris into breaking him out of his prison to have both Siris and the God-King take his place, allowing him to assemble an army of Deathless Warriors and go on to TakeOverTheWorld.



* CantCatchUp: While traveling throughout the game's various locations, you may encounter [[spoiler: The Dark Knight]] from the first game. No matter how high you get in the Awakenings or how powerful your gear is, he'll always have much lower level than other enemies and can literally be dispatched in half a dozen hits. It's easy to feel sorry for the poor bastard when you kick his ass time and time again. Also overlaps with VillainForgotToLevelGrind.

* DamageSpongeBoss: The Dragons. The first one starts out with ''100,000'' hit points, and it just gets higher from there. The second dragon, Pisci, has ''500,000'' hitpoints and the legendary King of Dragons, Dragoor, carries a whopping ''750,000'' hitpoints, by far the highest HP of any enemy in the series!
** Actually, the cake of this trope goes to The Collector. He has a fairly large health pool the first time you battle him, but the second time you meet him, he's level ''2500'' and has ''200,000'' hitpoints. If you beat him again, his third appearance will have him at level '''10,000''' and will boast a crushing '''885,000''' hitpoints! At this point, you'll have to take breaks between the fight because he's a full on MarathonBoss at this point. Beat him again and...well, you see the pattern here.

* HarmfulHealing: The healing magic used in the game has a nasty side effect: in addition to healing wounds, it ages your body by the length of time it would have taken the wounds to heal naturally. In other words, each time you heal yourself, you're shortening your life span by a few months. Of course, [[spoiler:since the main character is a Deathless, this is not a big deal for him.]]

** The Ring of Ice and Fire, a DiscOneNuke that gives you powerful offensive and healing spells (in addition to a ''30-point'' Magic bonus) is almost certainly named for [[ASongOfIceAndFire a particularly popular fantasy series]].

Added DiffLines:

** Averted with the elemental resistance armor. As you advance in difficulty, enemies inflict growing amounts of magic damage over time that will rapidly overwhelm you unless you parry and dodge everything. Even a normal or great block will fail to protect you from this, making it mandatory to pick the correct shield for each opponent lest you die in seconds following a bad dodge or a non-perfect block.

** [[BonusBoss Easoleum]], one of the Deathless Kings is quite polite, with his pre-fight dialog implying that he only wants to fight you [[spoiler:because you are being manipulated by the God King]].

* BonusBoss: A lot: the owners of the Vile set, the Skycage prisoners and Ryth. Most of them are very strong and you don't need to beat them to finish the game, but many of the best items in the game are dropped from them.



* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: The God King's real name, [[spoiler:Raidriar]], ''doesn't'' undermine his image by any means. When you [[spoiler:finally take him on as the final boss, his full name and title ''Raidriar the God King'']] only serves to underline how powerful this guy is.

* TurtlePower: One of the new Monstrosity enemies, appropriately named Chelon, resembles an enormous tortoise.
* UngratefulBastard:
** Xyloto, who immediately attacks you after you free him from the skycage.
** In fact, all of the Skycage prisoners are this, especially Xyloto and the Petrified Noc. The Iron Hunter also attacks you, but at least he realises you are not evil after you beat him, and apologizes for attacking you and pleads for mercy.

* TheBattleDidntCount: [[spoiler: The first fight with Lelindre. She will ''completely'' overpower Isa when brought down to one-third vitality, but spare her when she realizes she didn't choose to become a Deathless, and can trust her to stop Galath.]]

*** He actually does eventually get to at least level 125, but even when he does level up, he still lags far behind the other Titans considerably in power.

* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Siris and Isa can be randomly attacked during missions by a massive Dragon, Ba'el, bred by [[spoiler:the Worker to distract them from finding his actual plan.]] The Ausar Rising update adds a second Dragon, Pisci. [[spoiler:The final update, Kingdom Come, allows you to fight the legendary King of Dragons himself, Dragoor]].

* SeaMonster: The second Dragon, Pisci. Despite being obviously a flying monster, her appearance greatly resembles a giant fish-eel hybrid with wings, and her name has a very obvious connection to fish.
** Also, while exploring the dungeon of the Broken Tower, Isa finds a massive underwater window that fills a good portion of the far wall. Usually, it only shows empty sea, but occasionally, without warning, a colossal... ''thing'' will pass by the window, resembling a ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunkleosteus Dunkleosteus]]'' put on steroids. Thank goodness we don't have to fight that...

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The first game's events seem to have taught the God King to heed the EvilOverlordList.
-->'''Siris:''' Give me a sword. Fight me!
-->'''Raidriar:''' I think not. You... surprised me, last time. I don't think I'll put myself in that position again.
