* EasterEgg: Look behind the tapestry near Alexander's room for a reference to KQ4. Half-dome can be seen in the mountains, as well as Sierra water.

* DigitalPiracyIsEvil: That so many people remember being frustrated by this game is a sign of how widespread piracy was even back then: the game is ''remarkably'' easy if you have the actual game manual which contains the spell formulae. Gathering the ingredients and casting the spells covers about two-thirds of the game. There is actually a debate on if the manual was intended as copy protection, but rather a feature, as at least two hintbooks reprinted the manual in complete form including page numbers (with one only leaving out a couple of optional counter spell phrases), and ''VideoGame/KingsQuestIIIToHeirIsHuman'' had its own software based copy protection on the disk itself..

* AdultFear: Graham paralyzed by grief. His son was kidnapped from his cradle and enslaved by his enemies ''somewhere,'' his kingdom has been burnt to cinders by a dragon that his best efforts cannot defeat with innocents suffering and dying on his watch...and then his only remaining child offers herself up as a HumanSacrifice. The canonical game shows this towards the end and its explained by Rumplestiltskin and Rosella, and in the ending.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: In the Infamous Adventures remake the magic map actually transports you all the way back up to Mannan's house instead of just to the bottom of the mountain and making you walk all the way back up every time as in the original, saving you many an instance of falling to your death.

Likewise you don't need to type in every line of spell preparation letter-perfect or HaveANiceDeath, although you will still die if you attempt a spell without all proper materials.

* EscortMission: In one part, Alexander escorts Rosella back into the palace. While she is able to handle the stairs and the crevices, he on the other hand is susceptable to falling to his death.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Little is said of what happens to Manannan's cat after the events of the game, though The King's Quest Companion suggests that nothing was alive and that there was no evidence of Manannan to be found when Derek Karlavagen moved into the house.

Presumably it was dealt with one way or another when Mordack checked in on his brother and found out what happened.

** Not to mention kidnapping the [[spoiler: crown prince of Daventry was not particularly wise, even for revenge purposes. King Graham has a lot of resources to search for his son, and the boy probably will have a great deal of his father's valor and ingenuity.]]
