Added DiffLines:

* HumansAreWhite: Yes, all Humans are white - there's one human male model that looks like it ''could'' have some Asian features, though it's hard to tell (faces are low resolution). Instead of having black humans, they made the entire race of Erudites black skinned.

* AmazonianBeauty: Female barbarians. Humans and High Elves are right at breast height on female barbarians, whose tops consist of a leather strap with a massive CleavageWindow. Jokes about "retiring to Halas" abound.

* CanonDiscontinuity: In terms of the lore and history behind the world of Norrath, things are split up into two categories. First is that anything actually found inside EverQuest, EverQuest 2 (up to a certain point in time for its own storyline with EverQuest), and EverQuest Online Adventures is official canon to the games. There's also the tabletop Pen & Paper versions of the games, which have much more detailed stories and lore, but aren't considered canon unless it's also covered in the game.

** Fippy Darkpaw is a gnoll whose only reason for existence is to howl at the entire zone that he was coming to Qeynos, which he did and was promptly killed by the NPC guards there. It is a canon running joke that he is spawning again for the 5 billionth time to quickly die. Many years later, he reappears elsewhere as a powerful boss, determined to get revenge on Qeynos and become a demi-god. Funnily enough, the wimpy version of him still appears, threatens everyone and quickly dies.

* PowerUpFood: Offered through the baking and brewing tradeskills - smoked Wood Elf, anyone? The stat boosts are usually very minor, however, and the best food tends to be an ''utter'' pain in the ass to produce, due to the rarity of the ingredients and the zillion subcombines required to make the final product. Want to make a baker cry? Ask them about the Misty Thicket Picnic[note]An item combine that required the player not only to be a Baker with maxed skill, but also to have leveled up to reasonable competency: Tailoring, Smithing, Brewing, and Foraging (not available to all race/class combos, forcing non-Foragers to buy supplies from players at a premium). Components available at vendors were not found in one location, but rather at no fewer than 7 different vendors scattered hither and yon. Players would spend ''months'' leveling up their crafting skills just to make a single attempt.[/note] or the Halas Ten Pound Meat Pie.

** Many mobs are set immune to certain spells for no reason except to screw over the player. Certain named melee mobs, for example are made immune to being immobilized or slowed down, just so they can run up and bet down caster classes. Certain areas have enemies that are not only immune to changes in their movement speed, but also have extremely high magic resistance, just so they can run away from you and train the entire dungeon on you, and you are nearly poweless to stop them unless you are insanely overleveled for the zone. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
