* ATasteOfPower: When you begin the game Varric plays up Hawke and Bethany as huge, the latter case (BuxomIsBetter literally,) whose overpowered abilities one shot multiple Darkspawn and make an Ogre an utter cakewalk. When Cassandra makes him retell the story you have to build up your abilities again.

* PixelHunting: A bit of a problem in the PC port on higher resolutions, lots of enemies and interactable objects have surprisingly small selection boxes (and the enemies move fast).

** If played as a mage, Hawke plays the mage to Varric's thief and Aveline's fighter, as materials released after ''Dragon Age II'' regularly treat them as a PowerTrio.



* JerkassHasAPoint: While Fenris's endless rants about the dangers of magic can be annoying, the game's plot does show that he's not exactly wrong about how dangerous magic can be if used incorrectly or maliciously.

** Or Hawke's reaction to running into Anders affectionately warning Isabela, "Don't come to me next time you pick up one of these diseases" (no doubt of the sexually transmitted variety) as she's exiting his clinic.

** Or Hawke's reaction to running into Anders affectionately warning Isabela, "Don't come to me next time you pick up one of these diseases" (no doubt of the sexually transmitted variety) as she's exiting his clinic. An alternative version of the scene has him treating Seneschal Bran and warning him to avoid pirates in the future.
