* OurBansheesAreLouder: The Lyches in ''Myth III'' are the vengeful spirits of women who were drowned during [[WitchHunt The Great Cleansing]] for practicing magic. They attack with homing skulls that summon ghostly hands beneath the victim ForMassiveDamage.

* TacticalRockPaperScissors: Generally speaking this occurs with the most common units. Dwarves will demolish clumps of melee units. Archers out-range them and can pick them of from a distance fairly easily, but they lack the damage output to take out (or outrun, most of the time) clumps of melee units. All of this can be alleviated with very good micromanagement however.

* {{Misblamed}}: A big criticism of Myth 3 at release was the way it closed so much of the backstory that was left ambiguous in the games in ways the fans found unsatisfactory to say the least. It turns out all but a few added details (they had to make a full game out of it after all) were straight out of the GURPS book, which had it supplied by the original creative team.
** To add,while the TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} sourcebook for ''Myth'' did draw from the official UniverseBible made by Creator/{{Bungie}}, it still served as a WordOfDante, admitting that it "extrapolates heavily" on some areas where the details of TheVerse are a little vague (such as how the magic system works, which it adapts to Gurps standard.) It encourages individual {{Game Master}}s to [[RuleZero use, discard, or modify]] any of its fill-in-the-gaps explanations as they see fit. ''Myth III'' effectively canonized its speculation.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Probably the shortest "The Reason You Suck" speech ever: "Casualties!"

* NightOfTheLivingMooksNightOfTheLivingMooks: The Fallen use zombies as their mainstay foot soldiers and spectral javelin throwers as their main ranged units. Their elites and specialists are recruited from other living races, though.

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Soulblighter attempts to do this to Shiver by blowing up a dam, that would wash over both the Legion and her army. Possibly justified, since she had the only major force left between him and Alric and it was completely smashed on it's own. Still, you'd think he'd show her some mercy, considering they were married and had a son back in the Wolf Age. Of course, it is only speculation on the part of the narrator that she would perish from this; it takes a ''lot'' to permanently put down a Fallen Lord.

** According the the {{GURPS}} source book for Myth, this is something of the case with the warriors of the Legion. They are quite GenreSavvy about their status as the RedshirtArmy, understanding that their role on the battlefield is sometimes to pave the way for the success of other units by laying down their lives.

* BoringInvincibleHero: Connacht in the ''Myth III'', up to utterly exterminating a race no other human force had ever fought and lived, because he's just that {{badass}}. ''Twice''. The only battle he loses is also the only one where he doesn't fight personally.

Heavily inspired by the ''BlackCompany'' novels and battle scenes from ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'', the games tell the story of an epic war between the living and TheUndead, led by the eponymous Fallen Lords. They represent one of the first attempts to create a strategy game with no base building, instead giving each side a fixed number of units per level. What also sets this game apart from many others is its highly realistic and revolutionary for its time physics engine. Almost everything is potentially a projectile and everything is affected by its surroundings. This creates a certain unpredictability on the battlefield and can lead to horrible/funny outcomes.
