Added DiffLines:

* FilmingForEasyDub: Most scenes have variations with alternate dialogue. These scenes are animated with little to no on-screen lip movement.

* PlotCouponThatDoesSomething: The ultimate goal of the game is to assemble the Black Mace, Orb of Mobus, the Hunting Horn, the Dagger of Arne and the Crown of Malric. Each are used to solve puzzles on their own too.

* InfinityPlusOneSword: The strongest weapon in the first game is the Blood Sword of the Elder Kings, which kind of weirdly is not one of the pieces of the almighty artifact you're questing to find, and is a more effective weapon than the piece that ''is'' a weapon. Averted in the second game where you find the Dagger of Arne, which is both a piece of the Hand ''and'' works better than the Blood Sword.

* ElementalEmbodiment: At one point in the desert, Thayer must find three element-based monsters: water, earth, and fire.



* TheManyDeathsOfYou
* ObviousBeta: The game itself is actually playable, but it ends only when you approach The Far Reaches (ironically, because the rerelease of Thayer's Quest got a name of ''Kingdom: The Far Reaches'' and this kingdom '''never''' makes appearance till ''Shadoan''). [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Rumor has it that animation for all five kingdoms was drawn... which never made it to the game.]]
* OneHitPointWonder: Two, actually, but if you lost one, there was only one way to actually restore it and it was kind of hard to find.
** Although you can't say it's NintendoHard. Perhaps, there are TWO places where you can heal during the entire game.
*** At the waterfall, and the monk in Illes.

* TheManyDeathsOfYou
TheManyDeathsOfYou: Make the wrong move or face a trap with only one point of health and you're a goner.

* FirstInstallmentWins: Thanks to Dyer who thought the original Thayer's Quest was 'too 70s' and also rehashed it into ''Kingdom: The Far Reaches'', with more cheesy audio, more cheesy name replacements (''including'' Thayer, who became prince Lathan), even more cheesy intro which sets you not to fight against Torlock, but rather with the greedy ruler of Kingdom of Iscar, as well as more cheesy navigation method.
** No wonder why this wasn't released in the arcades... Even the DVD version tries to mock ''the original'' cut...
** On the other hand, ''Shadoan'' is a straight sequel to '''this''' rehashment... where you finally fight Torlock, yay!

* {{Narm}}: Some in ''Thayer's Quest'', loads in ''The Far Reaches''.
** Instant example: when you visit Torlocl's throne room (no, not ex-Sorsabal's):
---> '''Torlocl:''' Saw, yunn pop, yuffound mah chambers. Gods, dreow him to tze bists! It wille emmuse mah cohrtiars! [[EvilLaugh GWEEE!! har har!]]
** And when you kill him...
--->'''Thayer:''' I'm sorry, I have no choice.
--->'''Guard:''' (definitely something that would fit [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo Shaggy]]) For ten years I've been waiting to see this, thank you freind!
* NightmareFuel: One of the more violent death scenes include [[spoiler:Thayer in several stages of decomposition before finally turning into a skeleton.]]
