** The Sorceror's illusion summoning spells. These summon monsters that immediately disappear if the enemy realises they are illusions. One of the base magic classes - that you have to level to at least 5 before choosing sorceror - is conjurer and provides real monsters as summons instead of the illusions of the sorceror. There is also wizard - requiring two magic classes at level 5, admittedly - which has considerably more powerful real monster summons.

* ArtifactTitle: When "The Bard's Tale" took over as the primary title for the trilogy, it became this for the latter games in the trilogy, since the Bard is only of special importance in the first game.

* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''Maze Master'', an obscure dungeon crawler for the Commodore 64 by the same author. When beaten it mentions ''Shadow Snare'', the working title of the first ''Bard's Tale'' game before Critchton switched publishers.

* BraggingRightsReward: The oft-acclaimed Spectre Snare in the first game (always lands a [[OneHitKill critical hit]], can cast Baylor's Spell Bind) can only be gained ''after'' killing Mangar. The good news is that it can be transferred to ''The Destiny Knight'', where it's downright ''[[DiscOneNuke mean]]'' for the first few dungeons. (Just remember to periodically sell it and buy it back so it doesn't disappear by losing its Spell Bind charges.)


Added DiffLines:

** The originally planned names for the trilogy mark out the classes needed to actually win. [[spoiler: In ''The Bard's Tale''/''Tales of the Unknown'', only a bard can activate the throne in Harkyn's Castle that lets you progress past the first floor. In ''The Archmage's Tale''/''The Destiny Knight'', only an archmage can reforge the wand. In ''The Thief's Tale''/''Thief of Fate'', a rogue's critical strike is the only way to kill Sceadu or Tarjan.]]
