* BoisterousBruiser: Werra was this down to a tee. He doesn't have any hard feelings at all after losing to both Hawkslayer and the party. In fact, he's thankful to all concerned for allowing him opportunities to engage in some fun fighting.

* AntiMagic: Anti-magic zones don't just prevent you from casting spells (except the most basic of light spells), they also ''turn off'' all persistent spells except light spells. In ''The Destiny Knight'', the '''entire Grey Crypt''' is a single massive anti-magic zone. Better bring a source of light that doesn't rely on spellcasting.

* WorldsMostBeautifulWoman: One of the Bard's poems in Lucencia explicitly says that Alliria was this not just in the entire world, but in the entire universe. [[spoiler: Given the CruelAndUnusualDeath she suffered at the hands of Tarjan, it also amounts to an extreme example of SoBeautifulItsACurse. The other Gods died relatively quick deaths by comparison. It is heavily implied that Tarjan murdered Alliria the way that he did because of the perverse pleasure he got from it.]]
