The game has two novelizations. The first, released 1999, went the way of the ''Baldur's Gate'' novelizations and was ripe with CanonDiscontinuity. The second, released online in 2000, was a fan {{novelization}} of the game's script baed on one particular play through.

Thanks to ''WebSite/{{Kickstarter}}'', ''Planescape: Torment'' has two [[SpiritualSuccessor Spiritual Successors]]: ''VideoGame/PillarsOfEternity'' by Creator/ObsidianEntertainment released in March 2015, and the upcoming ''VideoGame/TormentTidesOfNumenera'' by Creator/{{inXile Entertainment}} due for release in late 2015. The latter will take place in the ScienceFantasy far future Earth setting of ''{{Numenera}}''. (inXile couldn't obtain the rights to the Planescape setting.)

Coulda sworn... Sorry.
* InkStainAdaptation: Dak'kon, an optional party member in a licensed title, is, to this day, the most famous and iconic githzerai in the francise of ''Dungeons & Dragons''. Naturally, this means that from 3rd edition onward, his entire race, once characterized by being chaotic and capricious, has become much more like him, event though, originally, his lawful characterization was one of the factors that had made him an alienated pariah among his own kind.

* DoNotTauntCthulhu: Annoy [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Lady of Pain]] by mocking her and it will [[NonstandardGameOver end very, very badly]] for you.

I am ''not'' taunting that!" in place of his normal insult, though the effect still functions.

* HijackedByJesus: Played with. While there are several equivalents of [[FluffyButtHeaven Heaven]] and [[FireAndBrimstoneHell Hell]] in the setting, the various religions and mythologies mostly concentrate in their own planes of existence and none have overarching dominance.

Bottom line: this game is ''strange''. It did not sell well but was [[http://www.gamerankings.com/pc/187975-planescape-torment/index.html highly]] [[http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/planescape-torment acclaimed]] and also a CultClassic.

This is precisely the sort of misuse that led this trope to be renamed and permanently redlinked. And that's not a new development.
** Deionarra is a literal LoveMartyr, but what sends this into Adult Fear territory is that her relationship isn't some FantasticAesop -- she's simply so enthralled with romance she doesn't realize her lover's true nature until it's too late... rather like many real world people in abusive relationships. *** And ItGetsWorse -- just because she knows better now, doesn't mean she can let him go.
