* ChestMonster: Mimics return and are more than happy to chomp on your face.

* InsurmountableWaistHeightFence: One of the most extreme examples in gaming, and lambasted as one of the most jarringly ridiculous flaws in the game: you have to hunt down and kill the four ancient Great Ones and embrace their souls[[note]]or accumulate a million souls[[/note]] to open the Shrine of Winter to take a detour into Drangleic Castle... [[http://i.imgur.com/rdqnmgu.jpg because your character can't jump over a SINGLE fallen pillar]]. A lot of people questioned [[FridgeLogic why they didn't simply make the Shrine of Winter itself the obstacle standing in your way]]. That's far from the only time the game uses this, too.
** Also, in the Gutter, you can climb up and around the area and return to where you started by falling off a tiny ledge that you can't climb or jump up no matter what, despite it being only about as high as most of the ''stairs'' in the game.
** The bonfire in the Belfry Sol is separated from the rest of the Iron Keep... by a chest-high wall that you would easily be able to climb over in real life.

* BrutalBonusLevel: The Iron Passage in ''Crown of the Old Iron King'', a series of caves filled with gangs of melee opponents that will swarm you while you're being bombarded at the same time by spellcasters placed too far above you for you to reach them. It ends with a battle against [[spoiler: a blue Smelter Demon]].
** The Frigid Outskirts in ''Crown of the Ivory King'' are another example. Reaching it requires you to find a key in an extremely out of the way secret area, and the area itself is a barren wasteland cloaked by a blizzard that severely limits your visibility. The main enemies are giant, evil reindeer that love ambushing you right where you can't see them, and the boss of the area is just a DualBoss version of Aava, the King's Pet.

* TheNameless: The Great Old Ones are so old that their names have been lost to history. [[spoiler:The fact that the Duke's Dear Freja has a proper name is a hint that it is not a true Great Old One. The Great Old One is actually the fossilized dragon that Freja and her kin are using as a nest.]]

* NeverTrustATrailer: The game didn't end up looking a ''fraction'' as good as it did in some of its [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHgUuhOsHoA prerelease trailers]], largely thanks to a massive downgrade in the lighting engine being required in order to get it to run at an even ''vaguely'' acceptable FPS rate.

** ''Crown of the Ivory King'' adds the Bone Fist, which has ''S'' Strength Scaling while still having A Dexterity scaling. That's right, you can strap a skeleton's fist to your own fist to punch with the power of two fists at once, in Bājíquán style!
