* GettingCrapPastTheRadar - Some of the puns in the remake, such as Erasmus' comment that Baba Yaga doesn't believe in "Safe Hex". Also, talking to a tree will reveal that it just likes to beech about its more poplar neighbors.

* 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.
* GravityIsAHarshMistress - The Brigand Fortress' [[BottomlessPit deep chasm]] and rug trap.

* 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.

* WideOpenSandbox - Surprisingly for an AdventureGame, you are dropped in an open world where you can pretty much go anywhere except for some hidden areas and you can complete the main quest (And a few [[SideQuest Side-Quests]]) in a non-linear fashion.

* GlobalCurrency: Averted. You start with gold and silver coins in the first game, but once you get into the sequels you have to convert them into local currencies (dinars/centimes, royals/commons, crowns/kopeks). The last game doesn't have any conversion, you're givin 200 drachmas regardless of previous income.

* {{Animorphism}} - in the first game Baba Yaga turns the hero into a frog. Also the Dryad turns you into a stag or a flower if you piss her off.
** as you discover during the game, a Kobold turned [[spoiler:the missing Baronet]] into a bear.

As a result the valley has become a nearly lawless ruin, bandits prey on any travelers and merchants, monsters run unchecked in the wilderness, and your adventurer just barely made it into the valley before a blizzard sealed off the eastern mountain pass. Now ItsUpToYou to break the curse while taking on ruthless bandits, an ogress that likes eating heroes, (and we don't mean sandwiches) [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and the dreaded]] [[FluffyTheTerrible Antwerp]].

** Walking by Mirror Lake will sometimes cause a submarine to surface, with the narrator noticing that the sub looks out of place in a fantasy game and probably belongs in ''VideoGame/CodenameIceman''.
*** In the VGA remake, the submarine is replaced with [[VideoGame/EcoQuest Delphineus, who's looking for Adam,]] [[BreakingTheFourthWall only to realize he's in the wrong game.]]

** 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.
