** In the expansion set, the role goes to the Red Priestess Meltysand.
* BloodyBowelsOfHell: The Chaotic Evil's Dungeon looks very organic.

* CurbStompBattle: The first mission starts with
purple, Undead are red. In casual game, you seemingly giving one to the Alliance.can choose your colors among these four.



* DirtyCoward: Your Snotlings/Minions will run in fear from invading heroes.

to:

* CombatTentacles: The Chaotic Evil's Dungeon has them as doors and traps. About the former, the description says that [[AllAnimeIsNaughtyTentacles anyone familiar enough with Japanese animation should know what this entails...]]
* ConvectionSchmonvection: Averted with the Undead during one particular scenario where you have to attack several Alliance outposts on a frigid mountain: once in a while a powerful blizzard will start and freeze the heroes, weakening them. Since you Undead do not suffer the cold, you're suggested to attack them during said blizzards.
* CurbStompBattle: The first mission starts with you seemingly giving one to the Alliance.
* DeadpanSnarker: The narrator, obviously, and sometimes Meltysand around Barthas.
* DirtyCoward: Your Snotlings/Minions will run in fear from invading heroes. A level-three upgrade for the former though allows them to sneak past heroes undisturbed.



* ElementalRivalry: In the expansion, the cold, ice-related Mindless Army faces the fanatic, fire-based minions of Meltysand, the Red Priestess.



* EvilOverlord: You.
* EvilVersusEvil: In the campaign, you eventually face off against the Demons (controlled by what seems to be your other half) and the undead (not playable). The underground is also home to some hostile creatures such as spiders.

to:

* EvilOverlord: You.
You. As either the Ultimate Evil (Horde), Chaotic Evil (Demons) or Corrupting Evil (Mindless Army).
* EvilVersusEvil: In the campaign, you eventually face off against the Demons (controlled by what seems to be your other half) and the undead (not playable). The underground is also home to some hostile creatures such as spiders. The expansion has the Mindless Army clashing against both the Horde and the Demons, in one case simultaneously.
** Outside the three evils, it's seriously implied that the Alliance is not so better in that regard, especially under Meltysand.
* ExplainExplainOhCrap: The description of Dragon Lizards from the expansion, ending with mentioning: "(...) their fire breath. Wait a minute, fire breath?!"
* {{Expy}}: The whole world at large, both design-wise and factions-wise, greatly resembles Azeroth from ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''. One of the many, many ShoutOut of course.



** In the expansion, Barthas Snow, who you can control.



* FireIceLightning: Including the expansion set, we have the Demons, Undeads and Horde respectively.



* HornyDevils: some of the Demons, naturally

to:

* GiantSpider: Commonly encountered as undergound nuisances, usually infesting secret rooms containing gold. In the expansion their rooms now come with a spawning grotto that will summon swarms of spiders to attack your Throne Room. The only good news is that they'll attack heroes as well.
* HornyDevils: some of the Lust Demons, naturallythough Mistresses are apparently more "angry" than "horny".



* IndyPloy: A giant spherical boulder rolling down a corridor is one of the traps of the Horde, including the upgraded version which is filled with explosive. The Undead have the giant-snowball variation that freezes opponents.



* LargeAndInCharge: Fittingly enough, your Avatar is the biggest unit you can control.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: The Horde has such a spell. It's perfect to wipe the mind of unsatisfied monsters who are angry at you.



* SealedEvilInACan: In the campaign, you are sealed after the first scenario are remain confined to your throne for the rest of the game, using the Hand of Terror (the cursor) to interact with your Dungeon and the Overworld. Also the Skeleton King of the Undead.



** The most notable and numberous are ShoutOut to VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}, GameOfThrones, Literature/LordOfTheRings and more. Played for laughs with a random quote from the Narrator, where he reads an obscure quote and fails to recognize it.



* TortureAlwaysWorks: How the Demons relieve boredom.

to:

* TortureAlwaysWorks: How the Demons relieve boredom. Unlike the first game, Torture Wheel now come with a poor farmer already tied to it.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheHellHero: If you take your time a tad too much or fail to complete certain tasks, the Narrator will start demeaning you and nagging at you.
* WhipItGood: How the Lust Demons encourage the other minions to work faster and harder. Even for those who don't use a whip for combat, like the Succubus or the Dark Emperess.

Compared to ''VideoGame/DungeonKeeper'' it's much more simplified and focuses more on heroes than your own creatures and takes elements from ThemePark and TowerDefense systems.

In April of 2015, the sequel, ''Dungeons 2'', was released, changing the core gameplay to something much more similiar to ''VideoGame/DungeonKeeper'', albeit with a secondary map of the overworld, which functions more like an RTS game. The forces of evil have also been split into three distinct factions, the Horde (playable for much of the campaign), the Demons (enemies, later playable) and the Undead (enemies, playable only in skirmish/multiplayer and only with DLC).

* AntiHero: Basically all the heroes that enter your dungeon will be looking for gold, fame, books and / or weapons and leave once satisfied. They'll only try to destroy you if they're bored or rallied by a champion.

game. The forces of evil have also been split into three distinct factions, the Horde (playable for much of the campaign), the Demons (enemies, later playable) and the Undead (enemies, playable only in skirmish/multiplayer and only with DLC).



* EvilIsDeathlyCold: The Undead faction features several ice spells, as well as their Liches.



* MookMaker: Orc Chieftains, Brood Mothers and Liches can summon minions to fight for them. The Demons also have two kinds of spider egg trap that spawn minions when triggered.
* NoCureForEvil: Okay, all three factions are evil, but the Undead are the only ones who [[ReviveKillsZombie cannot heal their wounded, at all]]. Some of their monsters can restore their hit points (via lifesteal, eating corpses, or self-revival), but mostly they have to rely on reviving any slain monster (for free) form the Graveyard.
* NoSell: Certain monsters and, frustratingly, Bards, do not set off any traps they encounter, can temporarily disarm them, and even if caught in range of one, take no damage.



* SetSwordsToStun: Sort of, your creatures never die outright from any damage, giving you some time to save them by moving them to a hospital or altar of adoration or have them revived if they get downed on the overworld and you have the respective structures ready.

Monsters who die on the overworld aren't as lucky, though - a spell can retrieve them if they die in friendly territory but otherwise, unless a mid-game building is unlocked and built, or too few of them are free, they will perish. The Undead, due to their inability to heal, are the best at this - as long as you have the respective structures ready.enough Tombs, they will bring back any slain monster, anywhere, and at full health to boot.



* VideoGameStealth: Elven Archers, Banshees, Lurkers and Goblin Assassins can disappear from view. The last one can also use it to perform a devastating Sneak Attack.



* WingedHumanoid: The demigod Krowtoes.



* YouRequireMoreVespeneGas: Three resources: Gold (from mining) is used for buying pretty much everything and paying your creatures. Mana (from mana crystals) is used to research and cast spells as well as upgrading your population cap. Evilness (from doing evil things, usually killing unicorns and fairies) is only needed to upgrade your throne room.
** In addition, toolboxes or spider eggs are produced in the respective rooms for each faction and used for room research, upgrades, traps and doors. The Horde also produces beer which their creatures consume.

A strategy game developed by Realmforge Studios and published by Kalypso Media in 2011, can be somewhat considered the spiritual heir of ''VideoGame/DungeonKeeper''.
Also had a standalone expansion called "Dungeons: Dark Lord".
