** 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.

** 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.]]



* 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 be capped at level 75 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.
*** 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.

* 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.



** In a sense, there's also [[spoiler: 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.]]



* 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.

** In the Skycage update, you will always encounter a large Titan guarding the cages of the prisoners. If you're lucky, it may be a [[Videogame/GearsOfWar Locust Butcher]] guarding them. He's even wearing his apron and wielding his unique meat cleaver!
** In the second and third game, you can encounter Monstrosities: massive feral creatures that attack you with limb bashes and bites. One of the possible Monstrosities you can run into are the [[Videogame/GearsOfWar Pierced Wretch and Plated Wretch]].

* GuideDangIt: All of those seemingly useless maps you get? Yeah, they're each their own separate side quest for unlocking some sweet items. Good luck figuring that out on your own, though. The maps in the game are ''completely incomprehensible '' when you look at them. All of the maps display some vaguely cryptic clues on a location or weapon, but the rest is for you to discover. One in particular is the Map of Heaven side quest, which allows you to get The Worker of Secrets' armor, which happens to be the best armor for Siris, making this worthwhile. The map displays a picture of some building and two random weapons. Stumped, right? Turns out these weapons are the Blade of Heaven and the Axe of Heaven and are very expensive each. Siris and Isa must have these weapons equipped, then you must travel to the Metius Observatory and tap on an observatory in the right spot WAY in the background that you probably never noticed before you fight the first Titan. Then, you will travel to the Observatory where you encounter a BonusBoss and can claim The Origin armor, but there is no way a player could figure this out by themselves. Not to mention that the other maps cost a fortune in Battle Chips as well, so you'll spend loads of time and money for these cryptic quests.

* IShallTauntYou: Standard procedure for the games; being defeated in battle will have your enemy strike a victorious or mocking gesture towards your corpse. However, some enemies respectfully bow to you instead and the more talkative ones like the MX-Elite will utter "pathetic fool" or "you never stood a chance" in addition to their pose. The Dragons and Monstrosities are a bit more pragmatic and [[EatenAlive simply eat you instead]].
