* {{Vaporware}}: ''The Dark Prophecy'', a straight sequel in the style of ''Defiance'', which was in development for the {{Playstation 2}} and would have presumably tied up all the loose ends in the franchise... but was never finished, most likely because of Amy Hennig, the head writer of the series after ''Blood Omen'', leaving Crystal Dynamics for Naughty Dog, as well as the death of Tony Jay, the voice of the Elder God. Not to mention the fact that ''Defiance'' didn't sell too well.

The fate of the franchise at large is unclear. ''Defiance'' ended on a cliffhanger, albeit with most major plotlines resolved. A sixth title, a direct sequel to ''Defiance'', was cancelled mid-development and the parent companies that own the series have shown little interest in reviving it again. Kain and Raziel have also appeared as bonus characters in ''[[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light]]''. In 2013, ''Nosgoth'' was announced as a team-based free-to-play multiplayer game based in the years after Kain tossed Raziel into the Abyss in ''Soul Reaver'' before Raziel emerged from the Underworld, and involves humanity's final attempt to wipe out the vampires and escape their subjugation.

* DemonOfHumanOrigin: Kain struck a deal with a necromancer to escape hell, and was returned to Nosgoth as a vampire for it. And in the sequel ''Soul Reaver'', his childe Raziel strikes a similar deal with the Elder God and returns as a soul-devouring apparition.

* FollowTheLeader: ''Defiance'''s combat system is obviously inspired from ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'', which had come out 2 years prior. When you think about it, it was actually one of its first followers, before ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'' and ''NinjaGaiden'' made everyone forget about it.

* BittersweetEnding: ''Defiance'', [[spoiler: Kain is purified of the corruption and can now see the Elder God, recognizing it for what it is and leaving it under a mountain of rubble, and is prepared to finally put an end to the Hylden's plans. But at the cost of Raziel now being trapped within the Soul Reaver, something that Kain had made every effort he could to prevent. While a cliffhanger, it's still the most uplifting ending in the series, apart form the non-canon good ending in ''Blood Omen'', which later games revealed would have really been a massive DownerEnding.]]
