* CrapsackWorld: It's downplayed somewhat, but Albion is a Somalia-esque anarchic failed state with nothing more than a small, ineffectual police force, no real government, and no military. While people seem to still be living relatively normal lives, the fact remains that everywhere that isn't actually in a town is swarming with literally hundreds of bandits and highwaymen, each one of whom is individually more powerful than any guard or civilian (and they always attack in groups). That's not even getting into the monsters, the evil spirits, or the slave traders who operate pretty much openly. The player character can either slightly improve it or make it ''much'' worse depending on their actions.

* TheMole: Lilith. She runs up to you and she exclaims, distraught, that her family had been attacked. Her husband had been killed and her son had been kidnapped. She requests that the Hero rescue her son who had apparently been taken to the nearby Howling Halls by Balverines. Hammer agrees to this and, along the way to Howling Halls, reassures Lilith a few times that they will rescue her son. However, this all turns out to be a trap, and once inside the Howling Halls, she exclaims "Children, I bring you flesh!" in a demonic tone and disappears, prompting her "children" to attack. Once all of the Balverines are defeated, she reappears as a White Balverine and attacks the Hero, who eventually kills her. You can just beat the crap out of her upon meeting her, you'll get some evil points, but two lines of extra dialogue.
** If you look at her info, one of her likes is "Travel-Ready Beef Jerky". This could be a hint at her love for flesh as a Balverine.

** While the "Wealth" option wasn't terribly interesting as it doesn't get you anything you can't get anyway ("Power" would have been better), being forced to choose between the other two "good" options was quite beautiful to some players. The ending was ultimately a good portrayal of what sacrifice truly means - most any player could resist taking the pile of gold, but are you willing to give up [[spoiler:the lives of your sister, your family (or families), and your beloved dog, and take a permanent hit in your effectiveness as an adventurer]] in order to do the right thing?.
*** To other players, it was seen as a ''painfully'' forced, unnecessary SadisticChoice. There is no reason given why the same magic that can save [[spoiler:an unknown large number of lives]] or save [[spoiler:a variable small number of lives]] can't save both. You are simply told pick one or the other, with no justification given for not being able to wish for something like [[spoiler:all of Lucien's victims to be resurrected]], which would give the effects of both choice A and B.
** Its also worth noting that one thing in the game world ''does'' change if you take the [[spoiler: Sacrifice]] ending. [[spoiler: The people of Bowerstone know about your sacrifice, send you a letter telling you that they are grateful, and build a statue in your honour. Evil or good, hated or loved by all, that's something that can't be taken away from your character.]]

* {{Acrofatic}}: No matter how fat the Hero gets, they won't slow down in the slightest. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] because the Hero ''is'' a Hero, and is stronger and faster than the average person.



* AntiFrustrationFeatures:
** The Hero ''cannot'' die, they'll just lose some experience and receive a scar if they fall in battle.
** If part of a sidequest is glitched, you can fast travel out of the area to reset it from the beginning.
** When your Hero is injured, healing items will automatically appear on the D-Pad symbol for you to drink or eat.



* BigBad:
** Lucien.



** Hammer is very big, and actually very pretty even though she dresses casually.

to:

** Hammer is very big, though more muscular than fat, and actually very pretty even though she dresses casually.



* CollectionSidequest: Several, including;
** Collecting 50 Silver Keys
** Opening 50 Demon Doors
** Shooting 50 Gargoyles
** Collecting 10 Murgo Statues in the ''See the Future'' DLC.
** Collecting all the books about Knothole Island in the ''Knothole Island'' DLC.



* DamselInDistress:
** A part of the main quest has the Hero and Hammer rescuing a frightened female traveller from Balverines. [[spoiler: Turns out she's the leader of the Balverines, and was luring you back to be food for her 'children'.]]
** If the Hero has a child, they will occasionally get a sidequest called ''The Rescue'', where their child heads off to the Hobbe Cave in order to be an adventurer like their mum or dad. The trope applies if they are female.
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler: The game starts with Lucien shooting the Hero, and the game can end with the Hero shooting Lucien if Reaver doesn't get in there first.]]



* TheDragon: The Commandant and the Great Shard are the Dragons to Lord Lucien. The Commandant's personality screen even describes him as Lucien's right hand man.



* DifficultySpike:
** The Spire because [[spoiler: the Hero is stripped of their usual weapons and can only rely on three healing potions while being up against [[EliteMooks Spire Guards]]. Returning to Albion ten years later also means that most enemies are tougher than before.]]
* DownloadableContent:
** ''Knothole Island'' unlocks a new area to explore with various shops and houses and three fairly long sidequests. It also includes various new dyes, hair styles and clothes, and appearance altering potions that can make your character fatter or thinner, or shorter or taller.
** ''See the Future'' unlocks three new locations, each with their own sidequest. It also has new clothes, dyes, hairstyles, make up and potions that can turn your dog into a different breed.

* EvilBrit:
** Lucien.
** Reaver.



* ExplodingBarrels: Some areas with high bandit activity will have these, making it easy to pick bandits off from a distance by shooting them. Garth also has them in his Brightwood Tower.



* ForebodingArchitecture:
** The Spire. A fellow worker even comments on how strange it looks.
** Howling Halls.
** The Temple of Shadows.



* GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath:
** Hollowmen have these. More vivid with the Elder Hollowmen.
** [[spoiler: The Hero is left with these if they [[RapidAging give away their youth]] at the Shadow Court. The young girl will also get these if you allow her to age instead.]]



* HappilyMarried:
** The Hero can be this, as long as they visit their spouse regularly.
** ''VideoGame/FableIII'' [[spoiler: confirms that this eventually happens for the Hero.]]
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic:
** Most of the helmets the Hero can wear is found in the DLC packs, and they ''always'' raise either aggressiveness, scariness, or how evil they appear to be.
* HeroicSacrifice:
** The Hero can [[spoiler: chose to [[RapidAging become old]] in place of an innocent girl.]]
** One of the ending choices [[spoiler: can see the Hero giving up resurrecting their dead dog and family in order to bring back everyone who died while working on the Spire.]]
** The Hero's dog [[spoiler: dies by taking a bullet for them from Lucien.]]



* HyperspaceArsenal:
** The Hero can carry heavy weapons, hundreds of food items and potions, countless clothes and dyes and gifts and books without so much as carrying a bag to keep it all in. The only thing you'll physically see is the current weapons they have equipped.
** When the Hero goes to the Spire, Hammer will look after their things for them. When she returns it, no matter how much stuff you had, it all appears to be in a simple cloth sack.



* InformedAbility:
** Garth can suffer from this; despite being a powerful Will user, the Hero is [[spoiler: left protecting him during the events of ''The Spire''. Garth only ever uses his Will to unlock the Hero's collar and power the Cullis Gates. He ''does'' help out with the guards during the end, but most of it is down to the Hero.]]
** [[spoiler: Averted during the final boss battle, Garth finally comes into his own.]]

Added DiffLines:

* LightningBruiser:
** The Hero can be this with high speed and strength.
** Highwaymen are incredibly fast, and will often flip out of the way of the Hero's bullets.


Added DiffLines:

* MenAreTheExpendableGender:
** The majority of bandits are male, though you occasionally can spot one that ''might'' be female. All Spire Guards and Highwaymen are strictly male, however.
** Averted with hobbes and balverines; there's at least one female balverine and it's near impossible to tell the genders apart with both creatures.
** Hollowmen, despite their name, can be female as well.


Added DiffLines:

* NoGearLevel: The Spire starts out like this, because the Hero has to leave their weapons behind. [[spoiler: However they will eventually find a gun and sword on the body of a dead guard.]]


Added DiffLines:

* NoticeThis:
** The golden breadcrumb trail will lead the Hero to wherever they need to go. Though it occasionally glitches.
** The Hero's dog will lead them to treasures and dig points, and will growl if there happens to be enemies nearby.
** Unintentionally, the camera angle will change before some enemy ambushes.


Added DiffLines:

* RegeneratingHealth: The Hero can have this if they sleep in a house with the 'Health Regeneration' bonus.


Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfThree:
** The three Heroes;
*** Hammer the Hero of Strength.
*** Garth the Hero of Will.
*** Reaver the Hero of Skill.
** The three abilities that come with being a Hero;
*** Strength increases the Hero's health and ability with melee weapons.
*** Will allows the Hero to use magic.
*** Skill increases the Hero's speed, accuracy, and damage with ranged weapons.
** Strength has three subsections:
*** Brutal Styles teaches various abilities with a melee weapon.
*** Physique increases how much damage the Hero can do with a melee weapon.
*** Toughness increases how much health the Hero has.
** Skill also has three subsections;
*** Dexterous Styles teaches the Hero various abilities with a ranged weapon.
*** Accuracy increases the damage that can be done with a ranged weapon.
*** Speed increases how fast and agile the Hero can be.

** Brightwood has some beautiful areas, despite crawling with bandits and hobbes. The sunlight filtering in through the trees is especially lovely.


Added DiffLines:

* SticksToTheBack: The Hero's sword and any large guns or crossbows will be randomly stuck on their back.


Added DiffLines:

* SuperDrowningSkills: Averted; the Hero can swim in almost any body of water, and they can only dive underneath for dive spots. However they cannot swim out to see, as you'll get a message that says 'only death awaits you if you go further' which stops you from going any further.


Added DiffLines:

* TempleOfDoom:
** The Court of Shadows.
** The various Shrines on Knothole Island.

** The Hero's husband or wife will get upset if they don't return every so often to spend time with them or give them presents; this is while the Hero is busy ''saving the world.''
** The ''T.O.B.Y'' sidequest has Toby ordering the Hero to commit petty crimes in order to get him food, alcohol, and a prostitute in the name of a false religion. [[spoiler: It doesn't end well for him when the Hero finds out, even when taking the 'good' option.]]
