* AfterCombatRecovery: In most quests, the player character is fully healed after every two encounters. This is sometimes justified by having [[TheMedic Twilly]] being around to heal the player character, but he's not always around, and the player character recovers anyway.

* AfterCombatRecovery: In most quests, the player character is fully healed after every two encounters. This is sometimes justified by having [[TheMedic Twilly]] being around to heal the player character, but he's not always around, and the player character recovers anyway. According to [[http://forums2.battleon.com/f/fb.asp?m=22147326 In Media Res]], it's a Ninja Cleric who gives the player character stealth healing.


Added DiffLines:

** The description for the Dogzilla pet mentions that while it's a giant dog, it's not "[[Literature/CliffordTheBigRedDog a big red dog loyal to you]]".


Added DiffLines:

** The [=StarSlayer=] and [=StarSaviour=] armors are again homages to ''Franchise/StarWars'', being Jedi robe variants.
** For the release of ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', the game released the Lt. Lore Cannon and Irony Man Shield. As mentioned above, Lt. Lore and Irony Man are parodies of Captain America and Iron Man.
** Among the {{Kaiju}} in "War of the Giants!" is the boss Kathool'Achoo. It takes the form of a giant squid whose description states that can't quite inflict the [[BrownNote insanity]] StandardStatusEffects--hearkening to Creator/HPLovecraft's {{Eldritch Abomination}}s--but instead blind.
** The Doray is a monster that was released the same week that ''Film/FindingDory'' premiered that has several shout-outs to the blue tang fish Dory. The monster is a blue Ray with yellow bands and mentions having short-term memory, and the shield it drops quotes Dory's "Just keep swimming."

** The Dragon Knight mastercraft set belonged to the Mana Dragon and, before it was uncorrupted, could morph its wearer into a dragon loyal to the Mana Dragon. Even after uncorrupting it, the player character can don the armor and, if he/she has the FullSetBonus, use its BreathWeapon.

** In the promotional image for the Predatory Vampire Form armor, the armor has a helm highly reminiscent of ComicBook/{{Batman}}'s. However, it has yet to be implemented into the game.

* EvilLawyerJoke:
-->'''Daimyo Daimyo''': Hmm, so the Lawyers aren't demons. I guess the Staff must have forgotten to add that tag to them.
-->'''In Media Res''': BWAHAHAHA. Done.
** Yes, this means that any WeaponOfXSlaying for demons will activate against Ninja Lawyer Assassins.



** Or a mop.

** As shown in the 2016 Saint Patrick's Day quest, [=EbilCorp=] employs Ninja Lawyer Assassins to enforce LawfulEvil.



** The Despair Bear, the boss of the 2016 Snugglefest event, is a twisted version of a Franchise/{{Care Bear|s}}. It has a ghastly face on its belly, and its special attack is called [[CareBearStare Despair Bear Stare]], where it shoots out skull beams from its belly.
** The End of Graves is a play on Music/BulletForMyValentine's "End of Days". Its description parodies the lyrics: "It's the perfect thing to give you the power when you're beholding adversity and you need the strength to carry on."
** The Keyblade of Passion is named for and modeled after ''Franchise/KingdomHearts''[='=]s signature weapon. Its description says it's from a video game based on the [[Franchise/MickeyMouse Mackey Moglin]] cartoon franchise.
** The 2016 Blarney War introduces [=PikaZards=], which are quite explicitly [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Pikachu]]-Frogzard fusions, having They have long ears with black tips, red cheeks, a lightning bolt tail, deal Energy-element damage, and is one of the [=ZardMaster=]'s 'mascots'.
** The Bat-tle Axe of Steel was released alongside the ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' film. It gains solar energy in the day and becomes dark and brooding at night, reflecting Franchise/{{Superman}}'s and Franchise/{{Batman}}'s traits.
** The Tyrannochicken Rex is said to be the descendent of Mega-Ultra Chicken. The spell Invoke Tyrannochicken Rex is apparently written in a scroll in ancient Egyptian that translates to "Arise, Chicken, Arise!" These descriptions reference the jokes on ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''.



* StealthPun: In the Mogloween 2015 quest, Zorbak uses a fishing rod to raise moglin ghosts from the grave. He's literally [[FishingForSole Fishing for Soul]].

** Gizzards are reptiles said to be a missing link between Frogzards and dragons. They eat a lot, as they can't keep their food down very well. A [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gizzard gizzard]] in real life is actually a digestive organ found in some animals such as reptiles.


Added DiffLines:

* XanatosSpeedChess: In the March 3, 2016 Design Note, Falerin explicitly calls the meeting between TheChessmaster and ENTROPY this trope. The quest released on March 11 turns out to be this trope name--perhaps Falerin is a troper?

Added DiffLines:

* GroinAttack: Aquella does this to Mako in the final cutscene of "War of the Seas" as part of being a DamselOutOfDistress.


Added DiffLines:

* MythicalMotifs: Ryuusei has an eastern dragon motif. He has a [[GoodHairEvilHair Fu Manchu mustache]], red clothing with filigreed patterns, his WeaponOfChoice is a staff adorned with a dragon's head, and the first name he chooses, translated from Japanese, can be interpreted as 'dragon'. In addition, he has used the alias "Dragon" in IRC logs, and he's TheDragon for The'Gain before The'Galin abandons him.


Added DiffLines:

* RaisingTheSteaks: Necromancers of Lore get creative with their undead creations.
** One of the early quests, "The Farm", involves Seahawk creating mutant zombie vegetables.
** Zorbak and Kabroz relish in their necromancy--the Fundead Kitten, an undead kitten [[IncendiaryExponent on fire]], was a direct result of IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten.
** The player character can summon a Death Dog using the Necromancer class skill, which can be upgraded into a Doom Wolf.
** [=FrogZards=], being {{Underground Monkey}}s, get a skeletal variant and a zombie variant.


Added DiffLines:

** The Castle Crusher weapon mentions that it can't "let you team up with three friends in a side scrolling beat'em up", referring to the similarly named game ''VideoGame/CastleCrashers''.
** There is a LargeAndInCharge boss enemy called Tubthumper, named after Music/{[Chumbawamba}}'s hit "Tubthumping".
** The description from the Tartan Shield mentions that it's not a ''Spartan'' shield to protect against being kicked into a pit, an obvious reference to the memetic scene from ''Film/ThreeHundred''.
** In "Burning Questions", Kamui gives the player character the OPTIC, a set of glasses that allows him/her to see and unlock a person's secrets, represented as a safe. The quest plays out the same way as ''Franchise/AceAttorney''[='=]s Psyche-Locks. The title for completing the quest, "Ace Detective", supports this reference.
** The Bee Arthur Katana is explicitly promotes the ''Film/Deadpool2016'' movie.
* ShownTheirWork: The Star Sabre of ______ follow the same ColorMotif as its source material:
--> '''Kamui''': For any wondering why I did the colours like I did, check Franchise/StarWars lore for what your lightsaber colour meant in [[VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic Old Republic]] times, you'll prob find I correlated what gets healed with what type of Jedi got that colour. :p
