* LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading: Good lord, did the original ''Blood Omen'' ever have this. The PSX version was the worst offender, with load times in the double digits ''just getting into and out of the inventory screen''. The PC version was somewhat better, but, {{egregious}}ly, when you buy the game from the [=PS3=]'s store and play it ''directly off the system's harddrive'', the Loads and Loads of Loading is still present.

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: It's possible for Kain to wipe out all of his would-be assassins at the start of ''Blood Omen'', even without a GameShark if proper caution is taken. However, all the exits out of town are blocked off, and you'll just have to walk into and out of a building to respawn the enemies and let him die like he's supposed to.

*** To be fair, it's already made pretty clear in ''Blood Omen'' that [[spoiler:the Unspoken IS Hash'ak'gik. All we discover in Defiance is that he's also the Hylden Lord.]]

* SenselessSacrifice: Moebius claims to have made this thanks to Raziel sparing Kain:
-->'''Moeius:''' I can accept that Kain has murdered me, Raziel. As the Time Guardian, I foresaw that incident long before it occurred. And I take some small comfort in the fact that Kain remains the sole survivor of his vile breed. But you have single-handedly made my sacrifice meaningless.
** Of course, Raziel shuts him down immediately, having had enough of his manipulations.

** In ''Blood Omen'', Kain's quest really kicks off when he visits the Pillars of Nosgoth and talks to Ariel. In the end, he returns there to fight [[spoiler:Mortanius/The Unspoken]] and purify the Pillars once and for all.

An action video-game series by Creator/SiliconKnights and Creator/CrystalDynamics, ''The Legacy of Kain'' is set in the dark, gothic world of Nosgoth and its [[OurVampiresAreDifferent unique vampires]]. The series follows badass {{Anti Hero}}es, [[NameOfCain Kain]] and Raziel. Kain is a [[MagnificentBastard Magnificent]] SociopathicHero interested in conquering Nosgoth with a vampire army. Raziel is Kain's right-hand vampire who he has killed and turned into a wraith, and sets about trying to kill Kain to avenge himself. It turns out Raziel has the power to ScrewDestiny, and from there we get into time travel. Thus, from ''Soul Reaver'' on, all the main characters, including Kain, take turns playing GambitRoulette with [[CosmicPlaything Raziel as the ball]], hoping to [[UnwittingPawn trick him]] into changing history to make things better for them. Along the way, there's a ProphecyTwist or two, loads of {{Magnificent Bastard}}s, [[FloweryElizabethanEnglish faux-Shakespearan dialogue]], and many chances for [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential video game cruelty]] as you decide how to dispatch {{Mook}}s in the most fun and gruesome ways you can think of.
