* Acrofatic: Henselt is fat but avoids AdiposeRex by being more muscle than fat. Many soldiers say that Henselt was an accomplished fighter not shirking from any battle and turned to lavish lifestyle only recently.

* AdiposeRex: Henselt is fat. Goes well with his objectionable personality.
** He is more {{Acrofatic}} as he is definitely more stocky than fat. Many soldiers say that Henselt was an accomplished fighter not shirking from any battle and turned to lavish lifestyle only recently.
*** And also TruthInTelevision - a bulkier fighter in the medieval era meant they could take injuries as flesh wounds that would kill other men - an inch is quite a lot when you're talking [[{{Kevlard}} about piercing fat versus piercing an organ.]] Besides [[{{Flynning}} the theatrical fighting techniques of movies and fencing aren't realistic fighting techniques]] - being a gymnast definitely isn't necessary to fight, especially compared to literally throwing one's weight around in a suit of armor.

The story opens with the assassination of Geralt [[TheHunter the Witcher's]] current employer, King Foltest, and Geralt being pegged as the prime suspect. Now Geralt must [[ClearMyName clear his name]] by bringing the real Kingslayer to justice. However, Geralt soon realizes there is far more at stake than simply hunting down an assassin of kings, as he is once again drawn into the [[DeadlyDecadentCourt political scheming]] of [[PowersThatBe those who wish to seize power for themselves]]. To complete his quest, Geralt must join forces with one of two potential allies; Vernon Roche, the noble, but [[HotBlooded hotheaded and impulsive]] leader of the Blue Stripes, an elite Temerian Army special forces outfit, or Iorveth, a cynical, but [[WellIntentionedExtremist well intentioned]] elf who leads the last remnants of the Scoia'tael.

Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: Aard is the most boring sign (simply being Force Push). It can also stunlock enemies by knocking them down (with knockdown + heavy slash spam being a viable Dark Mode tactic), and possibly daze them for a OneHitKill.

Added DiffLines:

* PunchClockVillain: Geralt can find himself in this position on Roche's path. His sympathies are clearly with the nonhumans and people of Upper Aedirn, but he still has to work with Henselt to accomplish his goals and put an end to the Eternal Battle.

Added DiffLines:

* ParryingBullets: You can get this ability by spending two levels in appropriate skill; you can even deflect arrows straight back at the enemy!

* KarmaHoudini: Depending on your choices, the following people can get off without suffering any repercussions for their actions: [[spoiler:Loredo, Shilard, Philipa, Henselt, Dethmold, and Letho.]] And no matter what you do, at least some of them will get away.
** There is a way to see them all eat at least a slice of the humble pie. But getting there means making a very precise order of choices, making this a GuideDangIt. Plus you probably end up screwing a bunch of people who don't deserve it in the process.

** Though lore wise it makes sense. [[spoiler:Letho was at the top of his game during their first encounter, but Geralt was still regaining his skill along with his memory. At his peak, Geralt was a much better fighter than Letho was, and by the end of the game, he is back at his peak. Thus he can wipe the floor with Letho by then.]]
