** Enemies with bows and crossbows never lead their target. Because they also have excellent aim, you can just walk sideways while shooting at them, easily defeating any number of enemy archers (if they don't have melee guards nearby) without taking damage.

* DarkIsNotEvil - Xardas, the elderly black-robed necromancer with pale white eyes who lives in a creepy tower and consorts with demons. On paper he looks like the BigBad, but he's actually TheObiWan. In the first game, he can actually teach a PC who has already taken both the Vow of Fire and the Vow of Water to become a Demon Summoner/Black Mage as well. So yes, you can totally be a hero that frequently uses a spell called "Army of Darkness" which summons six undead warriors. Though they will attack/be attacked when you summon them in a public zone.

** It's not exactly true. The Skeleton mages can summon endless waves of undead skeletons to their protection, unless you kill them. It's a good way to grinding, especially if you have Death to the Undead magic rune.

* TheObiWan: Vatras plays this role for the hero in Gothic 2. Xardas is this for the hero in the overall series, though a much darker version than the usual trope.

* EvilSorcerer: Xardas the {{Necromancer}} is a subversion - he certainly looks and acts like one, but he's one of the good guys (even if he verges on being a WellIntentionedExtremist a bit).

* UnexplainedRecovery - One dialog option when meeting Bloodwyn in ''Night of the Raven'' is to comment that you killed him back in Gothic 1 [[note]]Note that killing an NPC is Gothic 1 meat ''impaling him while he's unconscious''[[/note]] (while never required or even recommended, killing him was common because he's pretty damn evil). His response is that he survived a lot of things.

* ReverseEscortMission: Various {{Escort Mission}}s have [=NPCs=] escort you. When the normal order is the mission, if your NPC partner gets too far away, his character can go crazy trying to find you or may even vanish. For some missions, the tendency of this NPC to vanish accidentally was anticipated and he will appear at the last waypoint, waiting for you.

** Well, there is a kinder option - let him join one of the camps with you. He becomes a guard/acolyte, learns to fight, and FINALLY shuts up.
