* AnachronismStew: Let's see... playable characters include an IndianaJones-inspired AdventurerArchaeologist, a ConanTheBarbarian-style BarbarianHero, a [[OneMillionBC caveman]], a [[EverythingsBetterWithSamurai Samurai]], and a HawaiianShirtedTourist complete with a credit card (used to pick locks). Items and enemies include traditional staples like [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Dragons]], [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Demons]] and [[OurGiantsAreBigger Giants]], but also included are things like [[Film/{{Tron}} Grid Bugs]], [[GeniusBonus Quantum Mechanics]], and Jabberwocks. Finally, plastic, while fairly uncommon, isn't unknown either.

* EatingTheEnemy: One way to neutralize a troll's HealingFactor is to eat, or have your pet eat the corpse before the troll regenerates from it.

** Also fits the mechanic of "cancellation", which removes special abilities from monsters and turns almost all items into mundane equivalents (potions of water, blank scrolls and books, dead wands, etc, and it removes all enchantments and bless/curse status). And if you're not careful, you might have it done to your entire inventory at once.

** A Wand of Death, the Finger of Death spell, a bad roll on a poison check, doing anything that involves your bare skin and anything even tangentially related to a footrice including the contents of their eggs, hitting a Floating Eye in some cases, encountering a soldier ant/leocrotta/mûmak/minotaur when unprepared for melee, Medusa's gaze. A drowning attack is technically a two-hit kill but feels like a one-hit kill.

** To name a few: A Wand of Death, the Finger of Death spell, a bad roll on a poison check, doing anything that involves your bare skin and anything even tangentially related to a footrice including the contents of their eggs, hitting a Floating Eye in some cases, encountering a soldier ant/leocrotta/mûmak/minotaur when unprepared for melee, Medusa's gaze. A drowning attack is technically a two-hit kill but feels like a one-hit kill.kill.
** Two artifact weapons, the Vorpal Blade and the Tsurugi of Muramasa, have a 5% chance to inflict instant death, which is completely irresistable to anything humanoid (and the majority of things that aren't). These are guaranteed to spawn in the hands of two classes' quest nemeses (giving those bosses the 5% chance to instantly kill you), and the vorpal blade can randomly be given to monsters on the very last level of the game.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Nerf}}: Version 3.6.0 makes Elbereth significantly less permanent - even burned-in engravings of 'Elbereth' have a chance to fade when they turn monsters away, and the word itself requires you to stand upon it to activate, meaning that you cannot simply burn-in the word to protect a space for your stash or deny entry of monsters.
