* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: In the first game the Baron's daughter Elsa turns out to be [[spoiler: the leader of the brigands]] and literally impossible to defeat in combat. While there her skill could be explained by magical enhancements, she returns in the fifth game and is still kicking ass in her own right. Rakeesh would have been one, except the laws of his land prevented him from going out and doing what he felt was the right thing while remaining as the king, so he abdicated the throne. Finally, in the fifth game the Hero can become the king of Silmaria, or if he turns it down, Elsa takes the throne instead.

* CriticalExistenceFailure: As long as you have one health point remaining, you're fine. In an interesting variation, if you're in battle and run out of stamina, you'll be too exhausted to continue fighting and promptly killed. If you escape from battle and run out of stamina while running, however, you'll be fine (you'll lose health for running without stamina though, and you can run yourself to death).

** At least most of the games have cameos by various comedians. The first had the Three Stooges as part of the Brigands, the second had the Marx brothers (Groucho Marx as a used saurus salesman, Chico Marx as a junk salesman outside the inn, and Harpo Marx as a random encounter in the Shapierian alleyways), the third had SanfordAndSon as the Junk Dealers, and while there wasn't a direct cameo in the fourth game, the VA of one of the Mordavian townspeople is clearly doing a Rodney Dangerfield impression.

* SupernaturalSensitivity: It requires conscious effort and a nominal expenditure of mana, but the Detect Magic spell is pretty much this.

* TookALevelInBadass: The Hero, over the course of the series. In particular, there are two different parts of the first game where you can make a choice that leads to HaveANiceDeath ([[spoiler:drinking Dragon's Breath and fighting Elsa]]), and again in the fifth game you can do both [[spoiler:and survive this time]].

* {{Minigame}}: In [=QFG4=] and [=QFG5=], disarming traps requires you to play a minigame. In the former, you have to set a row of three identical symbols that switch randomly. The higher the difficulty, the faster they'll switch. In the latter, you are shown 8 various dancing poses of a figure. Once the timer starts, the 8 poses are hidden and the lock will randomly display a pose. You have to correctly match the hidden pose with the one displayed. The higher the difficulty, the more poses you have to match, the faster it gets, the harder it becomes to memorize the poses and the less chances you have to fail. In both minigames, failure will cause the trap to fire up.
