** In the first game, you need to get past a bear without killing him, and one way to do that is by giving him one of your food rations. You also have to barter with a Frost Giant, who specifically wants a couple of "handfuls" of fruit. And the first time you encounter Baba Yaga, you need to convince her not to eat you by offering her something "better" to eat instead.

*** The weapon seller sells "Conquest-style" arrows, which are specifically designed for the [[VideoGame/ConquestsOfTheLongbow longbow]], and he'll give you a special discount on a [[VideoGame/LauraBow bow from the Lara tribe and a dagger from the Amanra tribe.]]

** Combined with ProductPlacement in [=QFG4=]. Dr. Cranium's descendant is VideoGame/DrBrain, whose castle is the castle in the game.

** Almost every game has some sort of reference to other Sierra games.
*** At the lake in Quest for Glory I, in the original game you sometimes see a submarine from VideoGame/CodenameIceman. In the remake, [[VideoGame/EcoQuest Delphinius sometimes comes up, looking for Adam.]] In Erasmus' house, you can see a suit of armor from the [[VideoGame/LauraBow Dijon mansion]] and a carving from the [[VideoGame/KingsQuestIV Rosella stone]] (in the original) and a sarcophagus tied with a "VideoGame/LauraBow" (in the remake).
*** In the magic shop in Quest for Glory II, there is a hand puppet resembling [[VideoGame/KingsQuestIV Rosella]], and some [[VideoGame/SpaceQuestIII Orats-on-a-Stick]]. In the WIT, you are quick to note Erana's resemblance to [[VideoGame/KingsQuestIV Genesta]] as well, and to note that [[VideoGame/ConquestsOfCamelot Merlin]] looks much different. The astrologer has a model of a planetary system from VideoGame/SpaceQuest, and apparently [[VideoGame/ConquestsOfCamelot King Arthur]] died of thirst in the desert (though that turns out to be just a mirage).

* FanSequel: [=QFG4.5=] "So You Thought You Were a Hero?" is a parody sequel to the fourth game which disregards the fifth and largely takes place in Spielburg. Also various others in production that never seem to get anywhere (Hero6 being the most prominent example, the project is dead as of 2011) and a bunch of parodies including Quest For Orgy, and QuestForYrolg.

Also various others in production that never seem to get anywhere (Hero6 being the most prominent example, the project is dead as of 2011) and love interests here; suggesting she's a bunch of parodies including Quest For Orgy, and QuestForYrolg.descendant.

Back in the [[TheEighties 80s]] and throughout the [[TheNineties 90s]], {{Sierra}} was big in adventures. We had ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'', ''VideoGame/PoliceQuest'', ''VideoGame/SpaceQuest'' and everything you could stick a "Quest" to (and a couple of other ones). What most of these have in common, though, was that they used variants on the same engine and thus had the same game play, first using the parser ("get item") then using a more "traditional" (for adventures) point and click interface.

* StayInTheKitchen: Several characters in [=QFG5=] make disparaging remarks about Elsa's fighting ability; considering she's the strongest NPC warrior in the game, however...
** In the first game, she can OneHitKill the hero. Then again, this is because of [[AWizardDidIt the magic spell possessing her]].

** 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.)

** Leaving your balloon on an unreachable island by sea, then use the mystic magnet to return to Silmaria. You still need the balloon to finish the game, silly.

** Leaving your balloon on an unreachable island by sea, then use the mystic magnet to return to Silmaria. You still need the balloon to finish the game, silly.[[note]]As you progress through the Rites, Andre can take his fishing boat farther and farther out to sea, so there is a possible recourse if you strand your balloon on Delos or something, if you remember to go to the docks of Silmaria in the morning.[[/note]]

* ArmorAndMagicDontMix: Played with. In the first 4 games, wearing a chainmail doesn't affect your ability to cast spells. In the fifth however, it will lower your 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 makes armor perfect for StatGrinding magic.

However, with the odd exception of the fourth game, it is outright impossible to cast spells while wearing a shield.

* 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.]]
