* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler: The Terahnee in general]].



** And if you read up on D'ni history, it seems they were the equivalent of Luddites to the civilization they descended from. The Ronay and their heirs, the Terahnee, seemed utterly convinced of their own superiority and lived lavish lifestyles at the expense of the resources and inhabitants of the Ages they plundered. The lesson seems to be that no civilization can remain humble while it has the power to access any imaginable world at a whim.



* CrapsaccharineWorld: [[spoiler: Terahnee, to a [[{{nightmare fuel}} nightmarish level.]]]]



* ExtremeSpeculativeStratification: The Terahnee, seen in the tie-in novel ''The Book of D'ni'', take the cake for pointless malice. With their Book-writing ability, they have unlimited access to land and resources, and indeed among their own kind even the very poor live in huge mansions, control land the size of a small country, barely work and spend most of their time in pursuit of the arts or playing extravagant games. However, the Terahnee decided that, with unlimited access to natural resources, the power source of their civilization should be slave labor. Because they see themselves as superior to other races, they enslave them and force them to work in backbreaking labor until death, while being carefully trained to never make a sound or be seen by their masters.



* PoweredByAForsakenChild: ''Everything'' in Terahnee.
* PunnyName: Say "Terahnee" out loud a couple times... Many D'ni words are merely English words with a strong accent. Gahreesen, for instance, is a garrison.

* GiganticMoon: The moon in Myst understandably bears no resemblance to our moon, but the one in Channelwood is unbelieveably ''huge''.

The late Creator/DouglasAdams, upon playing Myst, cheerfully declared the game to be a 'BeautifulVoid' due to the lack of other characters or life of any kind. (He also created ''StarshipTitanic'', which was a game with a very similar premise [-[[RecycledINSPACE IN SPACE]]-], with snarky robots.)
