* {{Griefer}}: Brutally {{defied}} in ''WizardryOnline''. Say, you're BribingYourWayToVictory and kills dozens of players. Those players then puts Bounty on your head. You laugh, thinking that even if someone actually does kill you, you can just re-buy all your dropped gears with mommy's credit cards. Well, not so fast bucko: when you die with more than 5 Bounties in your head, you're sent to the Jail and must pay ALL the accumulated Bounties, lest you can't play ANY of your characters, not just the one that's behind bars. If all those players you killed put Bounty on your head, the fine will be far beyond what you can pay even if you farm for months. Kiss your account bye-bye, hope you learned something from the lessons.

* TheManyDeathsOfYou: There are lots and lots of ways to die in this game, death by hero notwithstanding. Basically, even by the standards of a NintendoHard series like this, Wizardry IV was infamously difficult, to the point where it's never been remade.

For those masochistic enough to try it, it's mostly in English as well.

* CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption: In Wizardry 8, to acquire an essential PlotCoupon from the peaceful Mook, you either have to switch it out with a fake cheap lookalike, or else slaughter them all.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilKnockoff: In almost every summoning circle, some of the minion selections include friendly versions of the player classes that make up the game's encounters[[spoiler:, such as the 1st level priests that are vital to making it out of the first room]]. Unfortunately, they are almost invariably weaker than their enemy counterparts of the equivalent tier.

A MMORPG called ''WizardryOnline'' was given a release in January 30th, 2013. Notable for being the first MMORPG with ''[[FinalDeath permadeath]]'' as a central concept -- AdaptationDecay will hopefully be averted; the team involved is the same team that created the very faithful ''VideoGame/ClassOfHeroes'' and ''WizardryLabyrinthOfLostSouls'', and have flat out stated they're mostly working on adding multiplayer to the existing games, with a stated goal of recapturing the early, lawless days of ''VideoGame/{{Everquest}}'' and ''VideoGame/UltimaOnline'' -- open PVP is also confirmed.

Wizardry is one of the very first computer {{RPG}}s. It was a hit in the early 1980s and spawned a trilogy, an infamously hard (and decidedly different) fourth title, a fifth that returned to the style of the original trilogy, and a final trilogy of fantasy/sci-fi hybrid games. They are:
