* YouShouldntKnowThisAlready: In the VGA version, you cannot give the Thieves' Password to Crusher until someone tells you what it is in-game, nor can you loot claws off of a Cheetaur or the beard off of a Troll until you have asked the healer about those ingredients.

* PreexistingEncounters: Enemies appear and approach you while wandering around Spielburg Forest. You can run (though they can chase you through multiple screens), or throw daggers/stones or use magic to damage or kill the enemy before combat actually starts. The game is fairly gracious, but sometimes you can get ''blindsided'' from an enemy [[InescapableAmbush that unfairly spawned in the loading area along with you]].



* RandomEncounters: The way they work in this game is by having an enemy appear and approach you from one of the paths on the screen while you are wandering around Spielburg Forest. You can run, or throw daggers/stones or use magic to damage or kill the enemy before combat actually starts.

* {{Troll}}: The game teases you if you mistake the huge approaching ogre [[AllTrollsAreDifferent for a troll]], likewise slay the fiend and search his body for loot, it'll again taunt you by saying there's nothing on him... except a large treasure chest.

* BiggerOnTheInside: In the VGA remake, the inside of Baba Yaga's hut is far more bigger than it appear on the outside. Not only that, but there's seem to be ''a large cave'' in the background.

* BewareTheSillyOnes: When raiding the brigand fortress, you encounter a trio of brigands [[{{Expy}} resembling]] TheThreeStooges. Goofy-looking they may be, but it's just as much of a game over if they catch you as it is if their more serious-looking compatriots do.

* GratuitousGerman: We have places such as [[Creator/StevenSpielberg Spielburg]] and a band of brigands with the motto "Brigands Uber Alles", as well as a brigand trio called "[[Film/TheThreeStooges Die Drei Knochelkopfen]]". The thieves' password in the VGA version [[ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish Is Always Schwertfisch]], and the random passwords in the EGA version are mostly German words.

** Apparently Film/TheThreeStooges found work as brigands. You even dispatch them in a slapstick manner.

** Upon first meeting Baba Yaga, you get hit with a quest to retrieve some mandrake root by sunrise the next day, or you die. The only time it is possible to get the mandrake root is at midnight from the cemetery, which is haunted at night. If you don't have either the Undead Unguent or sufficient funds to be able to buy some before nightfall, you're stuck between being killed by the ghosts or killed by Baba Yaga.

* AllTrollsAreDifferent: The ones here are big, blue, dumb, and violent. They carry [[DropTheHammer a big hammer]] with which to smash you, and [[MoneySpider plenty of coin.]] You can also loot [[EyeOfNewt their beards]] to give to the Healer for a reward.
