* AccidentalPun: Gazers are one of the many enemies borrowed from TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons; resembling [[http://dnd.wizards.com/dungeons-and-dragons/what-is-dnd/monsters/monsters-beholder beholders.]] Starting this game, if you kill one, they release a swarm of insects. In other words, they're [[JustForPun Bee-Holders.]]
** WordOfGod very [[http://ultimacodex.com/2014/05/how-an-erroneous-tvtropes-entry-led-to-some-fascinating-ultima-lore-revelations/ strongly]] states that this was not intentional.

* SequelDifficultySpike: The party members' health has been reduced to 30% of what they had in the previous game, while enemies don't seem to be any weaker. UltimaV is considered one of the hardest games in the series for a reason. However, the newly introduced day/night cycle does help things a bit - monsters aren't too likely to be encountered during the day, so it is now actually possible to travel from town to town without having to fight hundreds of [[{{Mook}} mooks]] along the way. Also, if your party wipes, you now lose experience and even levels.

And while they're at it, the Government decides to do something about those pesky [[DungeonCrawling Dungeons]]. They [[SealedEvilInACan seal them up]] with magic wards so that nothing can enter or leave. While they're at it, let's raise the Codex out of the Abyss so that people don't have to go through that dungeon filled with [[strike:Gargoyles]] [[UltimaVI Daemons]] in order to get the virtue.

* UnwinnableByDesign: There is a hidden box that you can get early in the game, if you happen to know where it is. It's important. You can't open it, even with fireballs or the OneHitKill sword. It is needed to win the game; if you don't bring it to the endgame, you lose. Also, if you lie to Lord British and say you don't have it, you're stuck with the IdiotBall for all eternity. Doubles with GuideDangIt because nobody in the game tells you what it's needed for (and it's the single most important item required to complete the game). Of course, [[RunningGag Smith the Horse]] will tell you that you had needed it if you meet him in ''UltimaVI''!

* AwesomeButImpractical: The Sword of Chaos is an UnbuiltTrope variant of this, in which it's not so much impractical as it is unusable. On one hand, it deals as much damage as the Glass Sword, and doesn't break upon use. Being an EvilWeapon, however, it can't be used to harm enemies at all, only your own companions.

Oh, and wielding it in battle causes you to lose control of the character, who will go berserk on other party members, and then fall unconscious when there is nobody left to fight.

* {{Expy}}: The Sword of Chaos is essentially [[TheElricSaga Stormbringer]] on steroids, an idea that'd be revisited in later games with the Black Sword.
