** ''And'' Hilla doesn't like Arkanium much either, laughing in his face after the events of ''Heroes'' [[spoiler:Leave his mind trapped in a snake's body.]] Suffice to say, the villains just don't get along.

Added DiffLines:

** Damien has a similar hatred for Arkanium, and it's mutual. Justified as Damien is trying to replace him.

Added DiffLines:

* ArbitrarySkepticism: ''Black Heaven'' has a hilarious double-dose in Act 1 when you and your three bird-like NPC companions encounter the first Boss, a golem-like humanoid named Dagoth. Your friends are surprised to see a "talking rock" (you'd think this wouldn't be unexpected in a world with walking mushrooms) but Dargoth is ''just'' as surprised by the concept of talking birds with hats!

** [[spoiler: In Black Heaven, after Gelimer poisons the your character, he tells him/her to beg for the antidote. Whether the he/she does so or not is up to the player; either way, Gelimer doesn't give him/her it, destroying it and laughing sadistically.]]

** While their weapons ''do'' need to be reloaded, Blasters will never run out of ammo doing so.



* BraggingRightsReward: If you have a Kaiser at or above Lv.150 and ''seriously'' want to show off your skills at bossing, have a go at obtaining the [[http://www.hidden-street.net/gms/equipment/weapon/two-handed-sword/liberated-kaiserium Liberated Kaiserium]]. With +200 to all stats and 400 weapon attack, it is one of the strongest weapons in the entire game. However, [[spoiler:you can only get it from a quest that requires the Cursed Kaiserium as well as 5 Spirit of Cursed Horns, both of which are only dropped by Magnus]], and he is one of the most difficult bosses in the entire game, so [[InfinityPlusOneSword once you've beaten him that many times...]]

Added DiffLines:

* RecoilBoost:
** Gunslingers get the ''Recoil Shot'' skill that lets them jump horizontally.
** Cannoneers get ''Blast Back'' to move horizontally, and ''Cannon Jump'' to [[RocketJump launch themselves vertically]].
** Blasters have ''Detonate'' that allows them to do either at the cost of using up one unit of ammunition.

* OnlyIdiotsMayPass: The Maple Tree is convinced that intelligence made the monsters of Maple World evil, so the Tower of Oz has a security system that prevents any but stupid people from staying inside long. (There's a mechanism to turn this off, but she has forgotten the password. (And she's already tried her birth date and phone number.) In game terms, you have to use Stupid Pills to increase the time limit; the more powerful the Stupid Pills, the more time you have. (This is only in GMS, by the way; in the original version, Oz is a dream world, and the player takes different pills to extend the time limit.)

** After years without one, it finally got one with the Black Mage. (Actually; the Black Magician has been there since Orbis was released; but because of the majority of the players neglecting questline no one really knew about him.)

** Gelimer is, for all intents and purposes the BigBad of the Black Heaven story, the Black Mage only making a cameo as a GreaterScopeVillain.



* The biggest eater of all is likely Alicia, the spirit of the Maple Tree. The mission on the third floor of the Tower of Oz has her request you collect ''a thousand'' Ancient Turtle Eggs, because she's hungry! (Justified, perhaps, because she's a goddess, but still...)

to:

* ** The player can be a Big Eater two in several event quests, like the one where the goal is to fly a fighter kite through the sky and gobble up as much of the cascading cakes as you can.

* BleakLevel: The Gate to the Future. The hills of Henesys are ablaze. Ereve has fallen to the surface of the Maple World. Perion has been taken over by the Resistance. And everywhere you look you'll find colossal versions of monsters from those areas, mutated into horrifically dangerous creatures.

** The Vanishing Road introduced in the Fifth Job update is arguably ''worse'', as its landscape features buildings and structures from nearly every other area in the game disintegrating into dust. The only enemies in this area are an assortment of faceless black creatures with white antlers. Further into the area, a fork in the road leads to two equally bleak areas: a shattered plateau with blue flames erupting from the crevasses, or an ominous forest of glowing blue mushrooms.

** Previously we were hinted at, or outright shown, that Maple World prior to the Black Mage's rise to power was somewhat medieval with a heavy aesthetic based on magic. Come ''[=MapleStory 2=]'', set during that time, which has modern cities, cars, 2010 and later type touch screen cell phones, MP3 players, etc. At this point, the writers do not give a damn.

''[=MapleStory=]'' is a [[AllegedlyFreeGame free-to-play]] {{MMORPG}} from South Korea that is both loved and hated for its unique graphics reminiscent of 16-bit games. Oh, and there's also an [[Anime/MapleStory anime version]], which has a plot with nothing in common. Like most [=MMORPGs=], ''[=MapleStory=]'' is crawling with all sorts of people, including (but not limited to) kids, tweens, teens, adults, noobs, hackers, [[StopHavingFunGuys people who take it too seriously]], and normal people who want to have fun.
