**It's actually Latin. Each magical school has its own chant in the form of three words that roughly encompass the school's theme (e.g., divination is "Veritas, credo, oculus," or "Truth, believe, eye").

* TheManInFrontOfTheMan: You are led to believe that Sarevok is TheDragon to the leaders of the Iron Throne company (specifically, to his father—the "CEO" of Iron Throne), but in reality, he has been the real mastermind all along and they are actually his pawns.

** ''Baldur's Gate TuTu'', which lets you play ''BG'' in the ''BG2'' engine.
** ''Baldur's Gate Trilogy'', which does the same while also uniting ''BG'', ''BG2'' and ''ToB'' into one single game.
** One of the most famous ones is the ''"BG1 NPC Project"'', which adds banters, quests, interjections and even romances to the original ''BG'' NPCs.

* FirstWorldProblems: A rare fantasy variant. A particularly snobbish nobleman in Baldur's Gate complains that the iron framing to his mirror broke and goes on like it's the worst that could happen in the world. Never mind all the people who are starving because their farmer tools are broken or the soldiers and other people trying to defend themselves are having their swords broken when they need them the most.

** In the original expansion you have Shandalar, who sends you on a FetchQuest to retrieve a cloak from a magical trap in the middle of nowhere that is essentially the Firewine Ruins on steroids. Oh, and he teleports you there, with no way to return without warning. Your reward for doing this for him is a big fat nothing. Sort of justified on his half if [[spoiler:you killed his family as part of the thieves' guild quest-line]], but otherwise he just comes across as a jerk.

* NotMeThisTime: The Zhentarim are blamed for the Sword Coast's woes early on in the game, but aren't responsible for any of it. This is why they dispatched Xzar and Montaron to investigate the situation and put a stop to it.
