* OurVampiresAreDifferent: One of the side effects of being turned into a vampire seems to maturing or rejuvenating to a physical age around 25. Actually if you do the math on the dates she already is 25 by the time of the game. The question may be asked why she looked so young as a human. Perhaps OurHumansAreDifferent.

The game is generally considered one of the lower points in the series, with its flat storyline, frustrating puzzles, and confusing setting. A fan-made remake, "Romancing the Stones," was released by Creator/AGDInteractive, fleshing out the story and improving puzzles; you can download it for free [[http://www.agdinteractive.com/games/kq2/about/about.html here]].

** The Official Book of King's Quest points out; If you know mythology, you'll probably know what to do with the snake and a bridle... It further explains, that the reader might ask what kind of nonsense is this (thinking it odd); however, readers of Greek mythology would know that a winged horse, named Pegasus, sprang fully grown from the head of Medusa (a babe with snakes for hair) when she was slain. So there is a link between winged horses and snakes, even if expecting a player to think "Greek mythology + snake = throw bridle" is still pretty insane. The King's Quest Companion, 2nd Edition gives two explanations that "Graham 'accidentally' threw the bridle" while trying to use his sword. The second explanation discusses the history and inspiration behind the puzzle Pegasus was born from Medusa, and Bellerophon was given a magic bridle by Athena in order to ride Pegasus.

Added DiffLines:

* CanonDiscontinuity: ''VideoGame/KingsQuest2015'' features stories set between the main entries of the original series, with a dash of AlternateContinuity to make things mesh. This is the only game that is retold entirely, with Graham suggesting the original story is a fabrication.

* EasterEgg: Many, but the most famous is a plug for ''VideoGame/SpaceQuest.'' The parser also accepts some raunchy input for those who are inclined. Considering [[VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry Al Lowe]] worked on this game, this isn't that big of a surprise.
