** Experienced players will sometimes ''waste'' wishes. The most egregious example I've seen was from an ascention where someone playing an Elven Priestess reached the Castle and got a 0:1 Wand of Wishing without either poison or fire resistance. Her four wishes: 2 blessed scolls of charging, 2 blessed tins green dragon meat (poison resistance), 2 blessed tins of red dragon meat (fire resistance), and a tin opener. That player still had one wish in reserve that they didn't need to use.

* LordBritishPostulate: The Riders in the Astral Plane can be killed, but revive themselves in short order; they're supposed to harass you into ascending (or dying) instead of hanging around on the final level indefinitely. You can't get rid of their corpses i any of the usual ways--eating them is fatal, trying to shove them in a tin can makes them revive instantly, etc. But there ''are'' a few bizarre ways to kill them permanently, such as filling every square on the level with monsters so they have nowhere to spawn ([[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything giving the message "You feel less hassled;"]] once their corpses rot away they will be gone for good).

Added DiffLines:

* TakeYourTime: The final phase of the game starts with fighting the Wizard of Yendor, who remains conveniently unconscious in his tower until you decide to fight him (though monsters might wake him up with a spell if you hang around on his screen too long). There's no time limit on the sub-Quest, either, no matter how urgent your quest leader might make it sound.

Added DiffLines:

* ExcusePlot: Regardless of your character class (or alignment, or gender), the story is the same--fight and scheme your way to the bottom of this incredibly dangerous dungeon to retrieve the Amulet of Yendor for your god [[spoiler:so you can become a demigod or demigoddess]]. The "quest" sub-plot is no better; they all boil down to "your friends don't like this guy/monster, go kill him/it." This doesn't matter, though, because the absurdly complex gameplay creates a story all its own [[NintendoHard (usually with a tragic ending)]].


Added DiffLines:

* LoopholeAbuse: You can't teleport to another level while carrying the Amulet of Yendor (if you could, escaping the dungeon would be far too easy). But you ''can'' use a cursed potion of gain level to float up through the ceiling to the level above you, because, technically, that isn't teleporting.
