* AbsurdlyHighLevelCap:
** Currently 250. As of this edit (April 23, 2015), only 26 players on Global ''[=MapleStory=]'' have achieved this.
** AbsurdlyLowLevelCap: However, getting to 200 (the old level cap) has become increasingly easier over the years, and at that level you can experience basically everything that the game has to offer. Nearly 70,000 players have reached 200 in Global ''[=MapleStory=]'' alone.

* AbsurdlyHighLevelCap:
** Currently 250. As
[[AbsurdlyHighLevelCap Absurdly High]]/[[AbsurdlyLowLevelCap Low Level Cap]]: Gets hit with both at once. The old cap of this edit (April 23, 2015), only 26 players on Global ''[=MapleStory=]'' have achieved this.
** AbsurdlyLowLevelCap: However, getting to
200 (the old level cap) has become increasingly is much easier over the years, and at that level you can experience basically everything that to reach now than it was years ago, with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRskdyU6VKI one player]] managing to do it in [[UpToEleven less than an hour]]. For many players, this is when the game has to offer. Nearly 70,000 truly begins. On the other hand, very few players have reached 200 in Global ''[=MapleStory=]'' alone.actually hit level 250, given that it takes several hundred hours even using every available method to speed things up.

** The hatred shown by Ephenia (the Elin Forest Boss) towards humans is ''much'' worse. [[spoiler: During the Elin Forest storyline, she allies herself with the Black Mage in a plot to use a poison to slay the warriors at the Altaire Camp who had been brought there by Aran. (Including Athena Pierce, the infant Dances with Balrogs, and Kyrin's mother, who was pregnant with Kyrin; the PCs actions clearly averted a disaster.) The first Grand Athenaeum quest line gives her hatred of humans an explanation, and some justification. Before the White Mage became the Black Mage, the fairies were subjected to kidnapping by Evil Poachers, and the land being defiled by Hidden Grave Robbers.]]

* TwentyBearAsses: Infamous for being much more like One Thousand Bear Asses. Almost mitigated by the fact that almost all classes can OneHitPolykill monsters by the truckload, and stuff respawns almost instantly. But then you realize how long it takes to loot the dead monsters.

Added DiffLines:

** In the Friendstory line, you can use spells, abilities, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking not wear your uniform]] as much as you want outside of Mote fields and nothing will come from it.
** While each class has their own distinct personality, scripted lines for special quests or dungeons are recycled, meaning they all react the same to a wide variety of situations.

** In the Omega Sector, we have the [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Mesorangers]] and an NPC who is a WillSmith look-alike [[Film/MenInBlack that oddly enough sports a black suit and sunglasses]]. Not to mention that you find these [=NPCs=] in a level where you fight aliens...

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.]]

Later ''[=MapleStory=]'' expansions[[note]]As early as the release of the fifth Adventurer class, the Pirate, with many quests in the Nautilus referring to the Black Mage[[/note]] reveal that an entity called the [[BigBad Black Mage]], his [[TheDragon Commanders]], as well as an affiliated organization called the Black Wings, are responsible for the activities of some of the major bosses, as well as the chaos happening within the regions where these bosses reside.

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 comprises members of a variety of job classes.

''[=MapleStory=]'' is a [[AllegedlyFreeGame free-to-play]] [[SideView side-scrolling 2D]]{{MMORPG}} from {{UsefulNotes/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.
