* {{Cutscene}}: That damn unskippable {{cutscene}} with the dwarves...
* DarkerAndEdgier: Along with King's Quest VI, this is considered to be the scariest game in the series. Despite coming from King's Quest III to this, III becomes ''notably'' lighter once you leave Manannan's tower.
* DevelopersRoom: At one point, if you type "Beam Me Up, Scotty!" you get sent to [[EasterEgg a secret room full of Sierra's game developers]]. This only works in the (AGI) version.

In this game, you play as Rosella, the twin sister of [[VideoGame/KingsQuestIIIToHeirIsHuman Alexander]] and daughter of King Graham. Literally picking up where ''King's Quest III'' left off, Graham has just tossed his adventurer's cap to his children, but before they can catch it, Graham suffers a heart attack and is now on Death's door. His only hope is a magical fruit that grows in the island of Tamir. A good fairy named Genesta sends Rosella to this land, but her powers are weakened by the evil sorceress Lolotte, meaning the trip is one-way. To win the game, you must find the fruit, defeat Lolotte, and return Genesta's powers to her-- all in the span of a single day.

* CoolHorse / Unicorn: It's widely agreed that getting to befriend and ride the unicorn is one of the best parts in the game. It's too bad it didn't want to still be your friend longer than a day (at least you can kiss it's nose while it's "tame"!)

*** [[spoiler: Yes, he has a crush on Rosella, but that leads to [[PleaseSpareHimMyLiege him pleading with Lolotte to spare her and let her go after the treasures]]. Rosella gets the treasures, and Lolotte pulls StandardHeroReward in forcing a marriage between Rosella and Edgar. Edgar, however, [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy smuggles Rosella a key attached to a single red rose]] so that she can free herself. Rosella breaks out, [[LoveHurts fatally shoots Lolotte with a love arrow]], and makes off with the talisman. After Rosella's saved Genesta, Genesta teleports Edgar to her island, and transforms him into a handsome young man (we find out later that she was ''restoring him'' to his true form). Edgar then inverts it by offering ''himself'' as StandardHeroReward, and Rosella turns him down ("Sorry, Eddie. My dad's dying of heart failure, and I've gotta cure him...."). The end of the seventh game has them meeting again, and Edgar wisely asking to court her instead of rushing into anything.]]

* SwansASwimming: There is a swan swimming around in a pond on Genesta's island. It doesn't affect the game in anyway, but it's certainly very pretty.

* {{Badass}}: Sure, Rosella is a princess, and unaccustomed to adventuring. She's also pulled to a land she's unfamiliar with and given no resources to accomplish her quest. And given her predicament in King's Quest III, it's likely that she hadn't slept or eaten for days. But she successfully evades or defeats ogre, evil witches, zombies, a mummy, evil trees, and a deadly powerful evil fairy. [[InTheBlood She may have inherited it from her father]], but she can certainly hold her own.

* ChekhovsSkill: She was taught to play the organ in her youth and is as the game states "A Virtuoso" yet despite you can discover this skill early on it doesn't actually have a purpose until near the end.
