** 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).

The Black Mage decides to send out Damien, and he's more than ready with an army of what's most likely other demons. Another quest after Black Heaven shows that Francis and Orca escaped from Black Heaven before it's destruction and Orca meets Guwaru, the King of Spirits, and despite having defied their law by gaining a human body, asks him to help her unlock the true power of a spirit of darkness.]]

* {{Mon}}: Monsters will sometimes drop a card that can be picked up and clicked on in your inventory's use tab so you can summon that monster as your familiar to have it attack enemies and give you a buff, after which it can be summoned for several minutes before its Vitality meter empties and can get more Vitality meters if you use multiples of its card (to a maximum of 3). The chances of cards dropping is high in lower levels but at higher levels you need to kill about a million of that monster to get one.
