The various regions of ''[=MapleStory=]'' have differing backgrounds and plots. In order to really notice this information, the player has to finish certain quests and then connect the dots while looking through their completed quests log. These quests can be fairly boring since most of them are [[FetchQuest fetch quests]] requiring you to collect TwentyBearAsses. However some quests are worthwhile and have good rewards, but you [[GuideDangIt won't know this until you look at your 'In Progress' quest log AFTER accepting a quest (which most of the time shows the reward) or reading a quest guide on the internet beforehand.]] Interestingly, a few quests actually have some unexpected plot twists in them, {{PlayTheGameSkipTheStory but these tend to be ignored since the player is just clicking "Next" and not reading the text.}}

Added DiffLines:

** The five heroes are said to have two mages and no pirate because Pirates didn't exist back then. The introduction of Shade as the sixth Pirate Hero is hand waved with the character having suffered a case of {{Retgone}}, but that doesn't really address the notion that there weren't pirates at all.

* MythologyGag: Whenever a storyline is completely replaced with a new one, the old storyline is generally still referenced as events having happened in the past. For example, the revampped Cygnus Knight questline features a re-enactment of the Master of Disguise attack from the original questline as a training exercise.

Added DiffLines:

** In The Afterlands' Land of Warriors, you encounter several characters that are all Expies named after figures of their class. The warrior is named [[Literature/{{Beowulf}} Beodog]], the magician is [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fulcanelli Vulcanelli]], the archer is [[Myth/RobinHood Reubenhood]], the thief is [[Literature/ArseneLupin Arsan Lupen]], and the pirate is [[UsefulNotes/{{Blackbeard}} Edgar Tetch]].

** At places in English version. One of the most outrageous ones is the case of Horny Mushrooms in the European version. Originally "Horny Mushrooms" in Global (mushrooms with horns. [[FreudWasRight What did you think?]]), they were changed into "Horn-shape mushrooms". And no, no typo there. However, they renamed them "Horny Mushroom" in Europe too, but forgot to rename the ETC-drop, which is still called "Horn-shape Mushroom Cap". Also, they couldn't decide how to translate the Knights of Cygnus; SEA and Global have different names for them and Europe (which takes most of stuff straight from Global) uses SEA names.

There are currently five[[spoiler:six if you count the Sengoku from Global/Japanese servers]] main character factions: the Explorers, the Knights of Cygnus, the Heroes, the Resistance, and the Nova Race. All of them have been affected by the Black Mage in some way, with some factions having more[[note]]the Legends and the Resistance[[/note]] and some less[[note]]Adventurers[[/note]] to do with him. These factions are not to be confused with the five job classes in Maplestory that players can choose, which are warrior, magician, thief, archer, and pirate. Think of the factions more as organizations, each of which comprise members of a variety of job classes.

* GentleGiant: Well to start, there’s the holy beast Shinsoo, who despite being a dragon, is a kind, friendly creature who protects Cygnus. There's also [[GeniusLoci The Colossus]], a living mountain with the personality of a child, although the player's goal in the quest line surrounding it is to make sure it ''remains'' gentle by destroying the demonic giant insects trying to corrupt it.

** Anyone can do any job save for Mihile who is always male and Angelic Buster who is always female. Gender-specific armor for females tends to be cheaper due to lower demand.

** In Black Heaven, Francis sneaks on the Alliance airship in an attempt to “rescue” Orchid (who he’s in love with) with no plan for getting off; then, after you take him prisoner, he offers to give you the blueprints to Black Heaven if you let him see her (forgetting he’s tied up, and can just take them from him now that you know he has them).
