** To add,while the TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} sourcebook for ''Myth'' did draw from the official UniverseBible made by {{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.

* BrickJoke: The narrator from the first game mentions a superstition that dark artifacts call out to evil men, which is why they are always discovered again. In the second game the new narrator, who has read his predecessor's journal, is rather amused that the Deceiver can find a Tain shard by following it's call.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The Nine spend most of ''Myth'' being manipulated by a disembodied head, which allegedly belonged to an old enemy of Balor. After it's treachery is discovered, it's never mentioned again, its ultimate fate unknown.

After it's treachery is discovered, it's never mentioned again, its ultimate fate unknown. Lampshaded in the sequel when the narrator idly wonders that very thing.

* ExactWords: The Head claims to be one of Balor's old enemies. This turns out to be true; in fact he was the previous Leveler incarnation that Balor defeated when he was still Connacht.

* BiggerBad: The Leveler is always the bad guy, and is invincible, sort of. There's a monologue about it. --> Although the hero of every age of light is different, every dark age is ushered in by the same beast - a transient divinity that seeks only conflict - The Leveler. And so Tireces returned as Moagim, to end the Age of Reason - and Connacht, the great hero of the Wind Age, returned as Balor, to lay waste to the greatest empire the world had ever known. The Leveler was never killed. He was immobilized by sorcery, beheaded and burned at the stake in the Second Era. A thousand years later, he was drawn and quartered on the plains before Ileum, the tireless horses dragging the pieces of his lifeless body to the four corners of the world. Again in the Fourth Era, his body was destroyed by fire, his ashes mixed with salt and buried under the Mountains of Kor. Balor, Moagim and all those before them wore the Mantle of The Leveler.

* BottomlessPits: The Great Devoid is one. [[spoiler:Alric plans to put an end to the Leveler for good by throwing Balor's severed head into it.]]

* 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.

* LosingYourHead: The severed head of "one of Balor's enemies from the old days" [[spoiler:heavily implied in Myth III to be Mjarin]] is still sentient after hundreds of years. Balor's head, after Alric's men cut it off, is also said to still be sentient, although despite the objectives of the final scenario implying otherwise, he never talks.

* BittersweetEnding: The first game. The races of the Light will win the war, but [[spoiler:[[KillEmAll none of the Legion will be going home.]]]]

* WalkingShirtlessScene: Soulblighter (pictured on the cover of ''Myth II'' that forms the page image) is always seen stripped to the waist. This is not for fanservice. Rather, it is to show off the large, curving scar down the front of his torso where his heart was cut out as part of a magical ritual that imbued him with NighInvulnerability on the battlefield.
