* GoneHorriblyWrong: The Nameless One originally sought immortality in order to [[spoiler:atone for an atrocity so terrible one normal lifespan wouldn't be enough]. Unfortunately he lost his memories upon his first death, including those of [[spoiler:said atrocity, so he never atoned]]... and the subsequent damage caused by his unnatural presence since is threatening to ''break the universe''.

** It's mentioned that the Nameless One forged the Fortress of Regret with his actions, similar to [[AChristmasCarol Jacob Marley's chains.]]

* BlackAndGreyMorality: The Dead Nations sequence is full of this. The Nameless One trespasses in a functioning undead society and is told he will stay their prisoner until death releases him, at which point he'll be raised as undead and become a free citizen of the Silent King's little kingdom of undeath. Despite that rather cold welcome, speaking to its inhabitants shows them to be a mostly friendly group of varied undead, simply trying to make the best of their [[TheUndead situation]] and protect the crypts from the rampant looting and graverobbing. The high priest who condemned you can even be reasoned with to let you leave, after providing a few services for the community [[spoiler:and/or learning the [[DeadAllAlong truth]] about the Silent King.]] While a prisoner, you run into [[TokenEvilTeammate Acaste]], the ghoul matriarch, a completely evil creature who resents the nations' reactionary laws (they're forbidden to kill or feast on the living without provocation) and hungers to just [[OmnicidalManiac kill and eat everything]]. The nations are opposed by Many-as-One, an unholy collective of cranium rats who's at least half on board with Acaste - it wants to scour the crypts of the undead and extent its own kingdom of filth far beyond its current confines.

Added DiffLines:

** In Carceri and Baator your spells get screwed up. For example a strength spell will actually diminish your strength instead of boosting it. Due to the flaky nature of this (not all spells are affected) it was assumed by many people to be a bug: but it's completely intentional since magic works differently on other planes. It's very unlikely a player would know this, though, since it's only mentioned in the Planescape campaign setting booklets.

* DealWithTheDevil: Fhjull Fork-Tongued is a devil who lost his deal, and is suffering terribly because GoodIsNotNice. Can be BlackComedy, but remember the game's themes about abuse...

* BrokenBridge: It is impossible to leave The Hive until the Bronze Orb has been found. When asked about it, Hive dwellers mutter something about "the streets being rearranged again." Justified because Sigil's nature as a [[EldritchLocation literal living city]] is very much part of ''TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}'' lore.

* PunctuationShaker: Githzerai and Githyanki names tend to be like this, including not only Dak'kon but also several that you meet in the Lower Ward such as An'azi, Yi'minn, and Kii'na.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Deionarra fell deeply in love with one of The Nameless One's previous incarnations. [[spoiler: Too bad for her that it was the [[ManipulativeBastard Pragmatic Incarnation]].]]
** Also true if the player chooses to play The Nameless One as a bad guy and puts sufficient points into his [[TheSixStats Charisma]].


Added DiffLines:

* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Only three of the main characters have hair on their scalps: The Nameless One has black hair, Annah is a [[FieryRedhead]] and Fall-From-Grace is blonde.


Added DiffLines:

* FireAndIceLoveTriangle: Possible if the player takes along the "fiery" Annah and the "cold" Fall-From-Grace. Somewhat subverted by Grace being chaste and the relationship between her and The Nameless One always staying purely platonic. That doesn't stop Annah from becoming incredibly jealous of her though.
** Annah's jealousy of Grace can even go so far that she may literally [[CrazyJealousGuy try to]] [[GenderFlip murder]] The Nameless One depending on which dialogue options the player chooses.
