* DiscOneNuke: It's possible to recruit a Dragon very early in the game, if you know where to look. Having a Dragon in your party makes the rest of the game MUCH easier. This is probably the reason they're the only race you can't choose for your starter character.

** There are two quests to rescue level 50 characters. Once you have access to any form of flight and invisibility these both become just a matter of knowing where to go. Once rescued they become recruitable.

* VideogameCrueltyPotential: For the Emerald Isle tutorial quest, you need a lute that you can either buy from a bard for 500 gold, or kill the bard for. Also, you can lead dragonflies from the swamp into town, let ''them'' kill the bard, and that way you get a free lute and none of the problems being a murderer causes you.

This can also be used to obtain the Wand of Fireballs without committing to a future favour.

** Pretty much every M&M title released following the fall of 3DO has tended towards this, actually. Don't even get me started on the recent DS title.

* DestroyerDeity: The eponymous entity of the subtitle is more of a PhysicalGod-slash-SufficientlyAdvancedAlien but he does have godlike powers and his sole purpose in the world is to destroy it. It's up to the PlayerParty to [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu punch him out]].

* DeaderThanDead: It is possible to not only be killed in battle, but to have your body ''completely destroyed'' (eradicated). Getting this problem taken care of is a bit more difficult, to say the least.
** Actually, this Trope doesn't truly fit. If a character is Eradicated, his body is destroyed, but not his soul. It is hard to reverse the process yourself, but most temples can do it easily. (It's ''expensive'', but it isn't hard. In fact, restoring a character that has been turned into a zombie - a condition you ''cannot'' reverse yourself that can happen in some games - is even more expensive.)

Added DiffLines:

* WorldLimitedToThePlot: In ''II'', the past is empty except where it relates to the modern day. No cities exist in any time period except 900, nor castles (except Castle Xabran, because it was destroyed in 899), nor any quests or major characters except those you're pointed at in 900. This isn't for deconstructive reasons; it's because only a couple of quests rely on time travel, the focus of the game is on the current century, and filling out the entire world five times would be absolutely too much work to no purpose.

* TimeTravel: Vital to the plot of ''II''.

* TimeTravel: Vital to the plot of ''II''. [[spoiler: The penultimate quest requires the players to change the past by giving King Kalohn the Elemental Orb and Talons, which allow him to defeat the Mega Dragon. Also, the Elemental Planes are in the past, as is the hint book in the form of Castle Xabran.]]
