** Also, much earlier, in ''The Beginning'', Marius answers to Nero's prayer to be safe in the vault "Oh, we will be safe here, my emperor. As safe as we can be." [[spoiler:In chapter one, this simply seems the words of a [[KnightInSourArmor battle-worn, experienced soldier]], but after it is revealed that Marius is the "Damocles" that Nero fears…]]

* ArrowsOnFire: Pretty much every arrow fired in the game is on fire.

** Likely done for gameplay, as it allows seeing them when moving in a testudo. When Marius is moving alone, there's a 50/50 chance they're not on fire; instead, an "incoming" warning is displayed to either deflect or evade them.

** [[spoiler:Unfortunately, it turns out that Nero and Aquilo have managed to either murder or threaten the entire senate into compliance (likely with more death threats), not willing to do anything about Nero and his sons.]]

* BringNewsBack: The reason Marius pulls a YouShallNotPass in ''Chapter VI – Pax Romana'' – [[spoiler:as after Commodus has murdered King Oswald they are about to lose Eboracum/York, he and Vitallion agree that the Senate needs to hear of this treachery. Ultimately, Marius urges his mentor to go, as he as a Legate (legion commander) is more likely to be listened to.]]

** On the good side, there's also [[spoiler:an unnamed nature goddess, apparently listed as "Summer" in the credits, who helps Marius survive to rise to his endgame position as a general in order to save Rome from the decadence and corruption that threatens to bring it down from the inside. She may actually be Nemesis, the game is really vague concerning the gods and their motives.]]

* SlidingScaleOfDivineIntervention: [[spoiler: Nemesis keeps to a Class 2, only offering vague advice and just a little bit of nudging in the right direction for Marius. Aquilo, however, is a Class 4, taking human form and directly manipulating events to his advantage. In the end, though, Nemesis's dialogue implies that Aquilo has broken some kind of celestial rule, and when Marius triumphs, Aquilo leaves without a word.]]
