** Khalkus the dwarf looks remarkably like [[LordOfTheRings Gimli]] from the movies.
** Another for the ''LordOfTheRings'': In the film of ''The Two Towers'', Aragorn tells Éowyn that it's hard to tell male dwarves from female dwarves because of their beards, and she laughs. In the game, the player character meets a female dwarf named Khrona... who has a beard.
** The elves are ruled by [[AMidsummerNightsDream King Oberon and Queen Titania]]. (You only meet her, but one of the rumors you can learn in a tavern identifies the king.)

VideoGame/PuzzleQuest is a series of games from Infinite Interactive. At their base, they are {{Match Three Game}}s with RPGElements. In each game, battles are fought by matching up various gems and other symbols on a grid. Depending on what the player matches up, the gems will turn into one of various types of mana or energy to use for spells/attacks, damage to the enemy, or bonus experience or money. The player can expand their power through the use of various mini-games, which represent ItemCrafting, learning new spells, or leveling up.

** Not quite game breaking, but the original PlaystationPortable release was misprogrammed so that allies' abilities never activated.

** That said, Blood Drain is pretty much ''all'' they've got. The Vampire Lords, on the other hand... they have Charm (destroys all Skulls and gains life equal to the number of Skulls destroyed) and Bat Swarm (halves your defense and causes you to take 5 damage per turn for 3 turns) in addition to the aforementioned Blood Drain and Vampire Fangs. Good luck, ''you'll need it.''

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: As a nod to everyone who made this complaint about previous games, the devs named one of the achievements "Cheating AI!" - earned by being defeated by an enemy on its first turn.

** On the other hand, clearing red gems (whether that's done by you or the Yeti) will actually hurt it. But it will be healed anytime blue gems are cleared. To make matters worse, it has a spell called "Ice Breath" which changes 14 random gems to Blue Gems -- frequently causing it to get several extra turns and fully heal itself. The battle can ''easily'' end up wearing on until the Crushing Kill.
** The Arch-Lich is also stupidly annoying, thanks to its absurdly high Morale stat making it near-impossible to cast spells. Putting ''every single skill point into your Intelligence stat'' is the ''only'' way you'll have a reasonable chance of using your spells, so if your play style relies on them, '''''you're screwed eight ways to Sunday, no questions asked'''''.

Kill. (Though it's just as prone to ArtificialStupidity as anything else in the game, so just because it ''can'' use Crushing Kill, that doesn't mean it ''will''.)

* SpoilerOpening: When beginning a new game of ''[=PQ2=]'', you are told the story of a Paladin, a blonde elf woman rendered in stained glass, who disappeared a long time ago while trying to find the source of the evil inside a tower near her hometown. [[spoiler:Get all the way to the end, and you have to fight that self-same woman - who is the MissingMom of your companion Laurella.]]
