* WhamLine: "They have your eyes, Sire." Not a particularly noteworthy line in itself, but the fact it's said by a blind man isn't lost on King Foltest or Geralt. Foltest has enough time for a [[OhCrap look of stunned realization]] before the 'blind man' whips out a knife, [[LightningBruiser bolts across the room]] and kills him.

-->[[spoiler:'''Letho''': Your witch is good with magic. Think she'll be able to teleport me to Aedirn?]]

* TutorialFailure: The Witcher 2 has a rather lacking tutorial that fails to detail several in-game features properly, [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2011/05/25/ as put by]] ''PennyArcade''.

* DeconstructorFleet: Much like the rest of TheWitcher materials, being in a low-fantasy setting would fucking suck.

* HappyEndingOverride: VideoGame/TheWitcher ended on a somewhat victorious note, with Geralt restoring order to the Temerian captial of Vizima and helping it forge an alliance with Redania in the process. Not too long in the sequel, though, [[spoiler:Foltest is killed and all of Temeria falls into chaos. By the end, it either gets divided up, breaks into CivilWar, or effectively becomes absorbed by Redania. And that's before [[TheEmpire Nilfgaard]] invades the Northern Kingdoms in the third game.]]

** Iorveth path's [[TheReveal big reveal]] in chapter 2 is foreshadowed several times throughout the game:
*** [[spoiler:In the prologue, Roche is puzzled by the fact that the dragon is only attacking his men]]
*** [[spoiler:In chapter 2's intro, the priest Olcan warns prince Stennis of Saskia, claiming he saw her in a dream as a snake-like demon]]
*** [[spoiler: Saskia's title is a very subtle one]]
***[[spoiler:While speaking to Iorveth in Vergen Geralt wonders why would the Scoia'tael will fight for a dh'oine, to which Iorveth replies: "Saskia? She's no dh'oine. [[NotLikeOtherGirls Certainly not like the others.]]"]]

** One would think Letho will rest after betraying both [[spoiler:Iorveth]] and [[spoiler:Sile]], and settle with his alliance with [[spoiler:The Nilfgaardian Empire]]... until the ending, when in one variation he [[spoiler:fights through an entire Nilfgaardian military camp to secure Triss]]

* CallBack: In the prologue, Geralt is informed of the capabilities of the ballista by King Foltest. This later comes to attention when Roche expresses concern of Loredo's owning of the weapon and is surprised by Geralt's knowledge of its powers.

* WalkingArmory: Averted compared to the first game. Geralt only equips a steel sword and a silver sword, but has several pockets for bombs and traps (likely due to complaints that the optional weapons were ''completely'' useless beyond torches for light).

* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: In the Enhanced Edition, a new quest involves you encountering a golem. You can fight it out, or you can literally invoke this trope by way of LogicBomb.

** It's possible to bluff the ghost of Dun Banner's standard bearer into giving up the standard if you remember key points about the both battle of Brenna and Henselt's prior campaign against Aedirn.

* UselessUsefulStealth: The game has several stealth sections. Unfortunately, the stealth mechanics are clunky at best. Mercifully, most of them are [[OptionalStealth not necessary to complete the game]].

Added DiffLines:

* CutscenePowerToTheMax: Combat Acumen adds this as ''a gameplay mechanic''. Building up the adrenaline bar to its maximum level allows Geralt to perform {{One Hit Kill}}s on groups of enemies at the press of a button. While it doesn't work on bosses, it does work on certain larger monsters, which can turn the fights into walkovers. Additionally, these animations and a cutscene from when Yennefer is taken by TheWildHunt are the only times in the entire franchise where Geralt is seen DualWielding.
