** [[http://kotaku.com/#!5773504/the-most-surprising-fantasy-game-expansion-pack-ever-created As a Kotaku commenter put it:]]
-->"So this is ''VideoGame/CannonFodder'' meets ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' then? I can live with that."
** The [[WordOfGod developers]] would like to think of it as "A mix between ''{{Moonstone}}'' and ''{{VideoGame/Gauntlet}}''"... Though, one of the developers has a brother who compared it to ''VideoGame/GuitarHero''.

* EverybodyKnewAlready: Vlad claims to be a non-vampire, yet there's more than enough clues dropped (including a person with a whip and leather skirt) before he announces that he is [[spoiler:a vampire]].

** The sword, Gram, has an ability called "Dragon Slayer". It's obtained fairly early in the game as a secret, and seems a pretty crappy weapon with no other abilities... Until you realize that [[spoiler:In Chapter 11, the boss is Fafnir, a ''dragon''.]] Killing [[spoiler:Fafnir]] with Gram is a {{Steam}} achievement which used to be quite hard to get, due the extreme length of time between getting Gram and slaying [[spoiler:the boss]]; however, with the introduction of a patch that allows you to replay chapters, acquiring the sword and taking it to the fight is now significantly easier.

* WeaponOfXSlaying: The sword Gram has the "Dragon Slaying" trait on it. [[spoiler: This allows it to OneHitKill Fafnir, who is a dragon.]]

* PurposefullyOverpowered: Vortex. You get it by beating the final boss so you can only use it in Challenge or NewGamePlus, but for good reason: it sucks in and instantly kills anything that wanders close enough to it, and it gets bigger as it sucks in more things. Dealing with massive waves of enemies can often be solved simply by dropping a Vortex or two. [[UpToEleven Taken to ridiculous levels]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tt7TWmEOzJg&t=0m37s here]]. Yes, that number goes to over '''one hundred billion damage'''.

* ImprovisedPlatform: To cross water and lava, the wizards have to freeze it into a platform using the Cold element. Cue a bunch of wizards firing off poorly aimed freezing spells as they slide along the ice.

* MightyGlacier:
** The Tank Robe from the Party Robes DLC. The player's movement speed is decreased significantly because of their armor (casting Haste on yourself barely allows you to move at running speed for normal Robes). Melee attacks with the initial weapon are slow and weak (it takes 6 hits to cut a rope in the tutorial, where the normal Robes take 3). However, the Tank can knock down foes by ''walking near them'' and has a [[PowerGlows glowing resistance aura]] to all forms of damage.
** The Zombie Robe gives the Wizard a ''lot'' of extra health at the cost of moving about as fast as a tortoise lugging a lead weight.
