* RetCon: [[spoiler:Leliana, Zevran]] and [[spoiler:Anders]] are alive and well, even if you imported a save where they were dead. [[spoiler:Anders at least has an excuse, in that Justice may be keeping him alive. However. this doesn't account for the possibility of you handing him over to the Circle without ever recruiting him properly, in which case he didn't do half the things he claims to have done, and never even ''met'' Justice]].
** If the ''Mark of the Assassin'' DLC is installed and you can speak to her, Leliana can be asked point-blank how she's alive when it's known (as part of the Warden's tale) that she died. She doesn't give an entirely straight answer, but implies that it may have been divine intervention.
** According to a dev on the Creator/BioWare forums, [[spoiler:Zevran]] was meant to stay dead. If this is not the case, then it's the result of a save import bug.

** The lead designer has said in a few interviews that the "villain" was actually meant to be the circumstances, not the individual antagonists.
*** Some have even argued that the antagonist is [[http://holyshitdragonage.tumblr.com/post/123721290836/the-enigma-of-kirkwall Kirkwall ]] [[CrapsackWorld itself]].

* BlingOfWar: Most armor in the game is subdued in its appearance, if sometimes fanciful. The "[[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110427095017/dragonage/images/8/84/Lololol.jpg Golden Prince's Raiment]]," however, plays this trope absolutely straight.
** Played somewhat straight with Prince Sebastian Vael. Merrill occasionally wonders how he manages to get his armour to be so ''shiny'' all the time, while Isabela uses it at one point as a ''mirror''.

* BerserkButton: Several times throughout the game the player is given the option to point out just why it is '''never''' safe to mess with Hawke's family.
** Overzealous Templars who mistreat Mages receive this response from a Paragon Hawke.

* AppealToAudacity: What ultimately convinces Cassandra that Varric is (mostly) telling the truth. Parts of Hawke's story are so fantastic that he simply ''couldn't'' have made them up, nor does Varric have anything to gain by lying about them, so they ''must'' have actually happened.
** Lampshaded in ''Legacy''. Cassandra notes he's omitted the event that took place at the Grey Warden Fortress, causing Varric to admit he left it out intentionally; said event was so unbelievable that, despite witnessing it firsthand, even he still can't believe it ''actually'' happened.
*** Also lampshaded in the same DLC, where Varric admits to lying about one incident [[spoiler:(Hawke's conversation with their dead mother's ghost). [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming His reasons for doing so are very good, though.]]]]

** Should you encounter Leliana in ''Mark of the Assassin'' despite the conversation being civil Tallis nearly craps herself. This is because she's secretly a Qunari spy and for those who had not finished the game yet Leliana had become a Seeker/Left Hand of The Divine, in other words just the woman sent to stop the threat of Qun spies and invasion.

** Bartrand once gives us the one-off "Andraste's tits!". Given as he was raised in Orzammar, he may well venerate the Ancestors (unlike Varric, who is surface born and Andrastian), so this may well be a Dwarven slur to disparage Human religion.*** Varric himself with his "Andraste's dimpled buttcheeks".
