* GoddamnedBats: Most flying creatures of the game's "hybrid" class (e.g. Harpies, Ekhidnas, Sirens, etc.) are this. Sure, even at higher levels, they're comparatively weaker enemies that don't do a lot of damage and don't have a ton of hit points. Regardless, their erratic flight patterns make them tough to hit without better-than-average timing, and they can really wear down your stamina when they attack in larger flocks. Things get a little easier once you [[spoiler: level up the power and radius of your Aard sign, which knocks them out of the sky and stuns them for a chance at a one-button insta-kill]]. Not that this helps a lot when you're in a boat anywhere in Skellige, since they delight in swooping down and attacking said boat out of nowhere, usually managing to bite off a giant chunk of the hull (which can sink you if it happens too many times) by the time the game lets you step away from the hull and draw your sword.

** Also, upon completing the "Blood and Wine" DLC, [[spoiler:Geralt gets one final "mission": Go home to Corvo Bianco, his vineyard estate in Toussaint. Upon arriving, his Majordomo informs him that "someone" has barged into the house unannounced. Depending on the player's relationship choices during the main game, Geralt finds a visitor / new resident in the form of either Triss, Yennefer, Ciri, or Dandelion (complete with context-specific dialogue options).]]

* OurOgresAreHungrier: Unlike the books, no ogres appear in-game but there is a category in the bestiary called Ogroids. Notable Orgroids include [[OurTrollsAreDifferent trolls]], [[Cyclops]], [[OurGiantsAreBigger giants]], and various [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent goblin-like creatures.]]
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: They are capable of talking, are seen in broad daylight, often hate their condition, and the curse has a rather [[Autocannibalism disturbing cure]]. Like more conventional werewolves they too have a weakness to silver, just like any other monster in the franchise.

* ScavengerHunt: The DLC includes new Grandmaster tier Witcher equipment sets for the Wolf, Cat, Griffin, and Bear Schools, while adding armor and weapons for the new Manticore School. Although it should be said that the Cat, Griffin, and Bear School gear requires the Mastercrafted tier equivalent in order to upgrade them. The Manticore set is Grandmaster tier already, while the Wolf set doesn't require the Mastercrafted gear to be made.
