* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Manannan seems outright paranoid that Alexander is casting spells behind his back to kill him. So if Alexander is carrying any ingredients to his spells, Manannan instantly kills him. [[note]]Never mind that Alexander could have simply picked up the fly because it is his job to clean up, or a chicken feather fell into his pocket while he wad feeding them. However, as noted, the story is clear that the wizard is going to kill him anyways as soon as he turns eighteen (which he has done to a number of children before him), and is looking for any excuse to kill him, and fly wings and feathers are very powerful magical objects as well as tied to spells in Manannan's book.[[/note]] It's stated in the prologue story (in the manual) that previous slaves have tried to use magic against him before.

** ''[=KQII=]'', [[spoiler:Graham kills lion.]] Not necessary alternate solution, leads to less points. [[spoiler:Graham kills the snake/Pegasus.]] Not necessary alternate solution, and will lead to less points (but many players fell for this solution, as the solution to the better option is 'obscure'). Graham can kill the fish, and can do it over and over again. Not necessary, and serves no purpose (no point loss/gain). [[spoiler:Graham kills Dracula]], which is not necessary either, except for full points. (In the FanRemake, this gets a twist:[[spoiler:the vampire turns out to be an ally. It's the werewolves at the church you have to worry about! And by "ally", we mean he will kill you if you don't fetch such-and-such item for him.]])

An unofficial [[VideoGame/TheSilverLining ninth game]], a FanSequel, was in the works until a cease-and-desist letter was issued in 2005... and then rescinded. And then ''Creator/{{Activision}}'' [[FanworkBan issued a new cease-and-desist letter]] in 2010. And then it was rescinded... again. ''VideoGame/TheSilverLining'' is currently being completed, with four of the five planned episodes already available at [[http://www.tsl-game.com/ their website.]] Different teams, such as AGDInteractive and Infamous Adventures, have also created fan remakes of the first three games, getting their controls and graphics up to the level of the popular fifth and sixth games. Find them [[http://www.agdinteractive.com/games/games.html here]] and [[http://www.infamous-adventures.com/kq3/index.php?page=downloads here.]]

* RedOniBlueOni: Manannan and Mordack. Manannan (Blue Oni) is craftier, and prefers to keep to himself[[note]]the King's Quest Companion suggests that he has minions, including the bandits of Llewdor, and travels to visit others often, so he is not as solitary as one might think, though he rarely has guests at his house[[/note]]. Mordack (Red Oni) is more brash and impulsive, and wishes for a wife. But this trope comes even further into play when you compare their homes. Manannan lives in a humble, practically cozy, normal house and sleeps in a pink canopy bed; the only garish thing about it is its location on the peak of a forbidding mountain. [[note]]This does not count the AGD version, where the house looks run down and decrepit.[[/note]] Mordack, on the other hand, lives in a massive gothic Castle on a creepy island with statues that vaporize anyone who tries to enter, a lava waterfall in the background, more creepy gothic architecture inside, many faces and eyeballs in the walls that follow you, and EldritchAbominations as guards.

* AntiquatedLinguistics: Mostly averted... in ''[=KQ1=]'', many of the characters (Godmother, Elf, etc) speak in old style English; in ''[=KQ2=]'' Rosella refers to Valanice as "Mum"; in ''[=KQVI=]'', Alexander utters quite a few old-fashioned curses (albeit relatively mild ones) for being otherwise a gentleman; and ''[=KQMOE=]'', which goes in the complete opposite direction to YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe levels. Both Graham and Rosella speak in antiquated English in Hoyle Games I.

** ''The Wizard And The Princess'' AKA ''Adventure in Serenia.'' It is known by some fans affectionately as "King's Quest Zero", for while it's not technically a part of the series (WordOfGod has said otherwise at times, even going as far to claim it being a 'prequel' to at least [=KQ5=]), it was a precursor in game engine and design. In the fifth ''King's Quest'' game, Graham returns to Serenia as a nod to this game.
