* CameBackWrong: The former king of Tolomera.



* MultipleEndings: There are four: [[spoiler:a bad ending for beating the game without finding all five of Moura's tears, no matter your amount of continues used. A not so bad ending for beating the final boss in the Realm of Pain after having used more then four continues. A good ending for doing so without using more than four continues. And finally a perfect ending where the game must be cleared without using a single continue, while also achieving several obscure goals such as invoking the lady of the lake, saving the Amadis from flames, and finding the Gamusin people.]]

* {{Homage}}: The entire game is a homage to the ''VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins'' series, right down to Don Ramiro being a mix of knight Sir Arthur and Spanish folk hero ElCid.

Added DiffLines:

* StealthPun: The mechanical Quixote is invulnerable to your attacks thanks to his metallic armor, and only becomes vulnerable when he jumps into the ceiling and comes down on fire temporarily. In other words, [[spoiler: strike when the iron is hot]].


Added DiffLines:

* VideoGameCaringPotential: In order to get the best ending, you must "Be Friendly to the Sirens", ergo, don't shoot any mermaids in stage 5.

The fact that the monsters and bosses are based on myths from all over Spain does not help with the issue.
