* GenreSavvy: The two-headed beast's opening monologue.
--> Let's cut the crap, okay? You got this far, you know the drill: you're the adventurer, [[strike:I'm]] ''we're'' your basic two-headed guardian-of-Hades-type creature. You're looking for treasure, mana, crystals, [[VideoGame/{{Myst}} red pages, blue pages]], whatever. It's all the same, really. The point is: you wanna get by. They always do. And we gotta kill ya. We always do. There's a little banter, a little slaying, chop-chop-chop yada-yada-yada, and then I gotta string your entrails all over the place and make a big mess. [...] Yeah, that's right, pull out the old inventory! ''Something's'' gotta work!

* UnwinnableByDesign: At one point in the game, the Griff gets the Coconut of Quendor from within the mouth of a dragon, but then someone in the dragon's stomach says that he needs a coconut to make a piina colada and tosses you rope for you to tie to a tooth. If you decide to drop the Coconut of Quendor down the dragon's throat instead to appease the guy, the Griff will comment, "Somehow I don't think that was its intended usage."

* HaveANiceDeath: Dying, being totemized or otherwise permanently messing up your quest results in a text scroll describing the aftermath of your last action. Falling down a bottomless pit, for example, leads to the computer describing how you fell for so long you died of old age.

* WhatTheHellPlayer: Although most GameOver scenarios come with plenty of warning or are caused by failing a puzzle, a number can only be seen if the player goes out of their way to get themselves killed. The totemizer alone has eight unique fail states, and Dalboz will chew you out in a number of them.
-->'''Dalboz:''' Of all the choices, you decide to go ''straight to Hell!'' What exactly was the thought process involved in that decision?
