* 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.

** The lobby of Erasmus' house in the EGA version includes: the "Rosella Stone", which has an hieroglyph of Rosella from ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestIVThePerilsOfRosella King's Quest IV]]'' on it, a genuine [[VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry Peruvian onklunk]], a model of a small plane from [[VideoGame/PoliceQuest Lytton PD]] and a bow from the Lara tribe. A [[VideoGame/LauraBow Lara Bow]], if you will.

** The VGA version of Erasmus' lobby has a casket tied with a ''VideoGame/LauraBow'', and
if you will.look at the portrait of Erasmus, the game will note that he looks [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings "subtle and quick to anger."]]

* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish: Well, it is , it's "Schwertfisch" (German for Swordfish) in the VGA remake, [[spoiler: [[YouShouldntKnowThisAlready but knowing that doesn't do you any good unless someone actually tells you]]]]. In the original EGA game, it's random.

* TakeAThirdOption: The importance of being able to recognize the ability this is emphasized in the foreword of the adventurer's correspondence course manual that came with the game.

* VictoryPose: The Hero will do one if you beat the Minotaur in combat, rather than sneaking past or putting him to sleep. He apparently doesn't die, though, as you can see him in the crowd in the throne room at the end of the game, sporting bandages, and shows up in a much friendlier capacity in the fifth game.

* EpicPoem: Your adventures get one when you clear the game with the GoldenEnding (freeing the Baronet, Elsa, driving away Baba Yaga)
-->Thus the hero from the East
-->Freed the man from form of beast
-->Saved beauty from the brigand's band
-->And forced the Ogress to flee the land.
-->The brigand band has been dispersed
-->Their treasure has been reimbursed.
-->And so with Kattas and Abdulla Doo
-->You bid the valley a fond adieu.



** Though there is actually a bug someone exploited on a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_61ggjq34o speed run]] in the VGA version, where you can throw a knife somewhere, regaining the ability to move, and just leave the room to go straight to the ending.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* FakeWizardry: A large group of brigands are terrorizing the countryside, aided in part by a strange wizard. Hints are dropped throughout the game, however, that said wizard isn't really using magic, and in the end the "wizard" turns out to be the local baron's [[TheJester old jester]], who has been using a mixture of intelligence, stage magic, blinding powders, and the rudimentary magic that even a non magic user can wield by knowing the right words or ingredients to mix together.

He knows he's out of his league against a real magic-slinger, and will run away immediately if you try to use magic of your own against him.

Added DiffLines:

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: In the first version of the game you could only sell the magic flowers to the healer a couple times before she stopped buying them. In the updated version she'll take all the ones you can bring, so while you're still limited to two handfuls at a time, it becomes a way to ensure at least a small steady cash flow.
