* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Averted with regard to ghosts, demons, and ogres. Some ghosts, mostly those of evil bent, are malign, and some have been driven insane by the screwed-up state of the afterlife, but others are benevolent and genuinely trying to make up for past mistakes. Demons are almost as likely to be benign as malign, and your party contains both. And while the player fights a tribe of savage ogres early in the game, the very next area features an ogre farmhand [[DrowningMySorrows drinking sadly]] because he accidentally killed a beloved cow during a game they played together.



** Gao the Lesser, an ArrogantKungFuGuy, manages to stun an Ogre and kick him into a cave wall, causing him to be crushed under rocks. Gao does use fire for part of the fight, which Ogres are vulnerable to, but when you actually fight him, Gao is stronger than a single Ogre but otherwise is a fairly easy boss.

* XanatosSpeedChess: [[spoiler: A subtle one. Sun Li is ''shocked'' you left the cave so soon. He had intended you to be safe in the cave, walled in, while the town was destroyed. He had intended for you to come out of the cave to find everything destroyed, and Li himself would have probably either run and hid before they came, or, more likely, allowed himself to be captured so the Spirit Monk would be motivated to rescue him. That plan was ruined, and Sun Li quickly came up with an alternate plan that got you to the Imperial City.]]

* AnachronismStew: While the vast majority of the gameís visual influence is Chinese, thus averting the FarEast trope, the developers werenít so picky about which time period they copied things from. You get most [=NPC=]s walking around in Tang, Song or Ming dynasty-style clothes, but then thereís Dawn Starís qipao and Qui the Promotersí very Qing-influenced patterns, as well as guards in Han dynasty armour. Thereís also a lot of gargoyle-like faces, from Shang and Zhou dynasty bronzes, in architecture and armour.

* ThirdPersonSeductress: ''Just'' about averted. The female player characters are predictably attractive, and their costumes do little to hide their charms, but their slim figures don't stoop to the blatant exaggeration of some [[Franchise/TombRaider notoriously top-heavy heroines]]. Also has a SpearCounterpart in that two of the male PC models are [[WalkingShirtlessScene constantly shirtless]] and quite buff (y'know, if you're into that kind of thing).

* MightyGlacier: Elephant demons are slow, but hit hard.
%%* MirrorBoss: The final boss, [[spoiler:Sun Li.]]
* MookChivalry: Averted; in most battles you'll have at least three people at a time ganging up on you.
* MookFaceTurn: Subverted after the dam. You can ask the sergeant if he's OK with what the assassins are doing, and he says that people's lives don't matter compared to the will of the Emperor. Played straight in a few other occasions, such as one mercenary who surrenders, and a soldier who was pressganged into the army to replace one whom a Lotus Assassin killed.
