* NonStandardGameOver: Downplayed. Opening both doors of the incinerator kills the player in regular fashion, but the EvilLaugh that normally plays during death sequences is skipped. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], in that, while most other means of death ([[EatenAlive eaten by a grue,]] [[BalefulPolymorph turned into a duck,]] drowning, [[TakenForGranite petrified,]] [[DisproportionateRetribution dying for failing a test,]] and depression, [[TheManyDeathsOfYou to name a few]]) allow for some amount of time for [[BigBad Morphius]] to gloat (and the adventurer to still hear him), the explosion would kill them instantly. This also applies for when you light the forest or barn on fire, which [[FridgeLogic is not as instantaneous.]]

* AngryGuardDog: Rebecca Snoot has one named Alexis, although it never attacks, despite being called a hellhound. Although it's still intimidating enough to where [[spoiler: a recording of its bark to get you past the Orc Leader later in the game.]]

* MadeOfEvil: Morpheus is the accumulated Evil Magic of the Great Underground Empire; while magic was thought to have been erased from existence during the events of ''Spellbreaker'' and ''Beyond Zork'', small amounts of evil magic actually accumulated underground over centuries, eventually gaining sentience and becoming Morpheus.

* TheManyDeathsOfYou: Assaulted by a vulture, falling into the river, failing a pop quiz, putting a rodent in your pocket, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking being too depressing for comedy]], you name it, it probably has it.

** In order to reach the final battle, you're required to sacrifice all your inventory items into the pit of fire to raise the bridge to Morpheus' inner sanctum. This is calculated to require every collectible item you can pick up in your quest. If you happen to be missing one of them, you're pretty much screwed.

*** Not getting the joke is recoverable, since you only need 4, and you can actually play the joke the Wizard told you at the very beginning of the game for number 4.

* AntiFrustrationFeature: If the frozen meat turned rotten and cannot be used, you can always go back to Rebecca's freezer to grab another.
** Ran out of zork-mids? You can find a money tree in the forest. Smacking it tends to drop some zork-mids.
** Lost your chance to get the keys from Boos? You can challenge him at drinking at any time for another shot.
** If you have to go through the bogs again, the good news is that whatever marks you left before will still be there and the path will not change for that playthrough.
** Did you forget to pick up the mirror back at Rebecca's home? You can still reflect Canuk's spell by finding a dirty plate, and wiping it with a rag to turn it shiny. Shiny enough to reflect the spell.
* BalefulPolymorph: Canuk is a duck by the time you meet him. Being an immediate threat to him is a good way to get yourself turned into one.
** Witch Idah can turn you into a rodent if you manage to anger her.



* CopyProtection: Two parts in the game (an optional one where you meet the Teacher, and one where you encounter Rebecca Snoot) requires you to take a pop-quiz where the answer can be found in the hint book included with the game. Fail to answer three times, and it's game over.
