* TheGhost: A criminal who's only ever called "the Cintrian" is hyped up as a major badass who you have spend two quests trying to track down. He's dead by the time you catch up to him, and because he fell from a great height after being defenestrated by Orianna, you don't even get to see his body.

* TakeThat: One of the first murder victims you find is an old knight named De la Croix, identified by a handkerchief signed as [[{{DownloadableContent}} DlC]], and you find out that he was a pretty greedy fellow. Subtlety, thy name is not CD Projekt Red.

** The angry mob rallying to oppose the new Skellige Gwent faction is pretty much a giant middlefinger for fans and professional critics alike who [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks vocally oppose everything new]].

* UniqueEnemy:
** There are only two Sylvans in the main game, and only one of them needs to be killed over the course of the main quest.
** There's a grand total of one Doppler and two Succubi that you can kill in the whole game, all of whom can be spared. Doing so, however, means you don't get the rare mutagens needed to make their affiliated decoctions.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: In "A Towerful of Mice" there are many subtle hints that [[spoiler: Annabelle is a vengeful Plague Maiden instead of a lonely ghost.]]

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: In the first game, Geralt had amnesia and many of his previous skills had atrophied. This was used to justify his level-grinding to higher levels. The second game had a somewhat organic feel because everything was scaled to your level. The third game dispenses with this and just places high-level monsters all over the place which Geralt must avoid til later levels. Given he is, at this point, the greatest warrior on his world and has all of his memories back, this is just plain weird.
** This can apply to all three games but, in the story of the books, monsters are becoming less and less common in the Witcher's world, making witchers less and less necessary. Yet the game series portrays a world absolutely brimming with monstrous creatures.
** Justified, as one of the main reason that monsters are rare is because with the development of walled cities, high population and large armies that can easily deal wit external threats, allows humanity to easily drove back monsters. With the war going on ravaging countrysides, large armies being focused on the battlefield instead of protecting villages, the monsters are making a comeback. Notbably, throughout the witcher ggames, one of the most common monsters are necrophages which thrives in the war situation that is tearing apart the North.

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: While berating Geralt about how disappointed he is in the witcher's performance, Emhyr slips a detail about how internal dissent in Nilfgaard is slowing down his offensive push into the North. [[spoiler:Later, Geralt has the option to pass this information on to Dijkstra, which gives the former spymaster incentive to call off the arrangement he's made with the emperor and prolong the war against Nilfgaard. This leads to the eventual defeat of the empire and Emhry's assassination.]]

** ''Be It Ever So Humble'' guest: [[spoiler:Dandelion appears by default, based on when the DLC is completed compared to the main game, Geralt's relationship with Yennifer or Triss, and whether Ciri is either the Empress of Nilfgaard or a Witcher. Either Yennefer or Triss appear, based on which one is romanced, Yennefer permanently moves in, while Triss wants to use the vineyard as a vacation home. Ciri appears either as a Witcheress visiting after a contract or an Empress on tour of the Nilfgaardian Empire's provinces.]]

* AIBreaker: Gwent has a number of exploits, though the AI doesn't always fall for them. One of the most common is if you go first and start with a spy card (which goes on your opponent's side). Sometimes the AI will pass, thinking it has an easy victory, which pretty much hands you the round.
