* LovableRogue: Ugarte. The hero if you are a thief.
* LostForever: Depending on your character type, you may forfeit any chance of becoming a Paladin. It's easy for a Wizard to become a Paladin: do what comes naturally, because virtually all of his choices are the honorable ones. A Thief becomes a Paladin by avoiding doing what comes naturally: stealing anything [[spoiler:except the bellows to capture the Air Elemental]] disqualifies him. The Fighter has to pass various tests, which in retrospect are obvious; failing any one of these automatically disqualifies the Fighter. Certain other conduct ''may'' disqualify a player.

** The Fighter gets a second chance to legitimately become a Paladin in the third game, which is somewhat harder to screw up. It actually makes the Fighter LostForever instead. It's quite easy to accidentally complete all the requirements of becoming a Paladin, even if you didn't want to. And it doesn't give you a choice either. [[spoiler:It may make the difference if the character asks to enter Uhura's hut before entering, once.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Examples include:
*** Attacking Julanar in [=QFG2=] in any way breaks your monitor.
*** Not helping Yesufu and losing in [=QFG3=] gets you a [[WhatTheHellHero chewing out]] and a game over because at this point the game would be made unwinnable anyway.
*** In [=QFG4=] killing the old man in his house makes him rise as a ghost, and it gets you a death message. Most likely the ghost literally screamed murder on you, alerting the Burgomeister.


Added DiffLines:

** This leads to very funny deaths if you try stealing from someone's house and they find you upon waking up.

** WebVideo/PawDugan learned the hard way to not steal from the Healer in the first game, as she will refuse to deal with you once she notices the theft. If you steal from her before she's made the dispel potion, you're screwed.

One series that differed a bit from this formula, however, was the ''Quest for Glory'' series, using a Mix And Match of Adventure and RPG. But that was not everything; the games also were a brilliant (and hilarious) Affectionate Parody of the adventure genre and had a very strong continuity despite being spread out over the course of nine years. Originally called Hero's Quest, before copyright issues with Milton Bradley resulted in them changing the name.

* 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]].

* BagOfSpilling: Played with; from 1 to 2, you carry over your money, weapons, armor, thieves' tools, and (in the QFG 2 remake) undead unguent if you have it, but not any other items you might have. From 2 to 3 you carry over your daggers, pills, and Sapphire Pin but nothing else. From 3 to 4 you don't carry over anything, as a result of a botched teleportation spell. From 4 to 5, if you're a Thief, you carry over the fake Blackbird. The rest of your starting inventory in each of those games consists of your default items, whether you imported the character or not. 5 also has Rajah give you one of the items you lost in the transition from 3 to 4, depending on your character class.

* ArmorAndMagicDontMix: Played with. In the first 4 games, wearing a chainmail doesn't affected you ability to cast spells. In fifth however, it will lower you magic attribute, making your spells weaker. On the other hand, because of the game mechanics, having a low attribute means it will raise quicker when you use it. This make armor perfect for StatGrinding magic.

Added DiffLines:

** The first game has the Dryad. Indulging in any violence against nature (attacking the stag, killing the spitting spore plants, etc) will pretty much instantly gain her wrath, and a BalefulPolymorph spell, the moment you return to her.

Added DiffLines:

** Your character contains a limited version of this even without Detect Magic. You're character will notice the emotions or intent of areas particularly infused with magic energy. (The temple of Vas Avoozl, pretty much anywhere Erana went, etc.)
