* AwesomeYetPractical: '''Runes!''' They appear randomly on maps, and can have spectacular effects. A Rune of Might causes your character to grow to giant size, and crush enemies underfoot. A Rune of Thunder causes lightning to crash from the sky and smite foes; a Rune of Riches causes treasure to rain from the sky, and a Rune of Darkness summons three Elite Monsters. (Use at your own risk!) The most useful and awesome is likely the Rune of Skills, which eliminates skill cooldowns for about 30 seconds. (That's right, your Demon can use Raven Storm over and over again and lay waste to hordes of mooks, to give one example.)

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Red Leaf High plays with this; if you every wanted to beat the crud out of a cute school girl (like Hermoninny) and an equally cute teacher (like Kumi) this gives you the chance, although ''both'' are tougher than they look.

** The Monster Picnic Event Quest involves you character ''slaughtering kindergartners on a field trip''. Well, okay, they're monster kindergartners and their idea of a field trip is attacking civilians in Henesy's, [[YouBastard but still...]]

** Ghosthunter Bob of Ludibrium is probably based on the ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', but he looks more like the WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters than the more well-known Dan Akroyd film/[[WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters Real Ghostbusters]] series. A mini version of the familiar "no ghost" logo can be seen on a related quest item, if you were doubting the connection.

* MonsterTown: Monster Treasure Town, a location added in 2016 for the 11th Anniversary Event, is like this, although from the look of the place, it's under construction. Inhabitants include Mooks (or rather, monsters usually thought of as Mooks) Pink Bean (who runs the museum, a key function of one event) and Clara, the Monster Advocate.

* BilingualBonus / MeaningfulName: Ludibrium is Latin for "plaything".

* BilingualBonus / MeaningfulName: Ludibrium is Latin for "plaything". Just look at the place. Edelstein also happens to be German for "gemstone". (It literally translates to "precious/noble stone", which is not far from the mark.) Edelstein is home to a gemstone mine.

* AHouseDivided: Evil example; Hilla and Magnus clearly don't like each other, despite being allies. Hilla specifically speaks negatively of him in cutscenes, and one stage of [[ZergRush the Dimension Invasion]] scenario involves factions belonging to both erupting into outright hostilities, the players caught in the middle of the battle. [[spoiler: There is, however, a few {{Easter Egg}}s that contradict this and suggest the two are an item, such as in Star Planet and in Friend Story where they ShipTease occurs.]]

** In Black Heaven, the Cygnus Knights and the Resistance make up the Alliance, but they ''really'' don't like each other at first, and argue all the time. The player often has to be the voice of reason in every disagreement [[TheMainCharactersDoEverything (resulting in him/her handling every major battle on his own)]] and eventually, [[spoiler: used as a scapegoat after a disastrous loss at the end of Act 3. Fortunately, this eventually leads to both sides finding common ground later.]]

** Almost none of the established characters have official ages, either. The closest we have are Kaiser and Angelic Buster, who are roughly 25(the flashback cutscenes showed them as kids at age 5, with the present day being about 20 years later), and Athena Pierce who is between 900-1000.

** Orchid hasn't seemed to age a day in almost a thousand years...years. [[spoiler: It's likely to do with the fact the Black Mage was the one who made her and Lotus's bodies and the fact they were initally spirits.]]



** Although you can play for free, getting (good) hairstyles/faces, inventory slots/experience multipliers/clothes, and certain shop-only items require the use of real money. Real world money is also helpful if you want a chance at having higher leveled equipment or over 100 million [[GlobalCurrency mesos]].

Real world money is also helpful if you want a chance at having higher leveled equipment or over 100 million [[GlobalCurrency mesos]]. It's probably ESSENTIAL to use real money if you want your character to have a shot at attempting to solo some of the harder bosses unless you're prepared to grind for months to work your way up.



** [[spoiler: At the end of Black Heaven, Maple World is safe, Gelimer is dead, the Black Wings are history, and the Black Heaven is a pile of junk. But this victory did not come without cost. Lotus, despite his crimes, was murdered by a crueler villain, and because Cygnus used the final Seal Stone to heal the player, there is no longer any restraint at all on the Black Mage and nothing hindering his return. On top of that, said “pile of junk” isn't as harmless as it seemed. The dark magic involved in the Black Heaven's creation and destruction has created a portal over Blackgate City, turning it into a deadly place populated by five vicious demons. What's more the Scrapyard itself is even deadlier, with many of Gelimer's evil creations still acting on his final orders and hunting down the friendlier robots, others acting on no orders at all and attacking anything that moves. (Each new area is for two different Level ranges, and the appropriate players can explore both areas to gain loot, items, and experience, if they dare. they can even fight Lotus in the Scapyard if they so choose.)]]

** A lot of the Battle Mage's skills involve some very "dark" themes (ex: "Dark Genesis", "Summon Reaper"), but the backstory of the Resistance faction puts them as the good guys. Additionally, the Knights of Cygnus' "Night Walker" class, and the Adventurers' "Night Lord", "Shadower", and "Dark Knight" classes - all involve some form of manipulation of shadows, darkness, or otherwise normally "sinister" skills. Also the Demon Slayer is a half-demon good guy with very edgy, dark, spiky attacks. Even though he was a commander in the Black Mage's army, he [[spoiler: was only there to protect his loved ones]].

** After seeing the Black Mage betray both Demon Slayer and Orchid, one has to think that this is the only reason the rest of his generals are still loyal to him. Subverted as it was actually Arkanium who killed Demon's family and Phantom attacking Lotus.

** '''And how.''' This game is famed for its level grinding, although as time went on it became much easier due to addition of party quests, experience needed to level up reduced by 25%, and the family system which lets even [[BribingYourWayToVictory non-payers]] get 2x exp for 15-30min. However, its still near impossible to level up at much higher levels.
