* ArtificialStupidity: Everybody in the game suffers from this, including the player character. Monsters and NPCs are known to charge right into the thickest concentration of player towers before attacking buildings, artisans gathering resources will calmly walk right into an enemy base (or get killed trying), and some creatures, when they reach the end of their effective patrol range will walk back and forth trying to decide if they want to attack the player's towers or return to base, repeatedly getting shot in the process until they die. Oh, and when the Player Character sees enemies coming, even if equipped with a bow, or ranged attack spells, they will simply refuse to retaliate or take any preemptive action unless attacked in melee, barring any contrary orders, [[LawfulStupid and all player controlled characters will try to follow their given orders no matter how suicidal it is to do so.]]

* BadassBoast: By the gladiator who offers to spar with you in Empyria.
-->'''Rune Warrior:''' You know I'm a Rune Warrior, right?\\
'''Gladiator:''' That's why I won't hold back, whether you come back once, tens or even hundreds of times.

* ArbitraryMissionRestriction: You cannot import a Rune Warrior which is level 31 and above into ''Shadow''. Level 30 and below is perfectly fine. [[note]]If you choose to use a character template, the Rune Warrior will start at level 28.[[/note]] This forces the player to DoWellButNotPerfect.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: There are no siege weapons (except for the trolls), and all attacks against buildings have to be melee. Using troll siege weapons was a headache as you have to place the weapons next to the buildings without giving an attack order.

* BagOfSpilling: When importing your character from either ''The Order of Dawn'' or ''Breath of Winter'', only the equipment they were wearing, the runes they had equipped and their equipment, are imported. Every piece of gear, mis cancellous items or runes which were in your inventory is lost. The gold disappear too, and you're left with "only" 500 gold coins.

* GuideDangIt: [[spoiler: In Empyria, to join the Assassin's Guild, you must first listen to Ishtar talk about the temple district and then he'll mention the string of murders which have occurred. This conversation is easily missed as the other conversations with Ishtar on the other city districts are purely descriptional and you're not expecting a quest chain in a particular conversation.]]

* BoringButPractical: The workers of all races except the dwarves. While they absolutely suck in battle, they can build towers to rain death upon enemy troops, especially the elf "freeze" towers that do damage and stun-lock. Often this can be the key to defeating bosses way above your level.

* SpoilerCover: The cover for ''Order of Dawn'' portrays the Phoenix Guard, which is canonically established to be female only in ''Shadow Of The Phoenix''.
**The cover of ''Shadow Of the Phoenix'' itself has the Phoenix spreading its wings, spoiling the fact that it was (eventually) released from its Stone.
