** If you tell a vault guard your name is Croesus, he will assume you are ''the'' Croesus, his boss, and (if the real Croesus is still alive) will let you get back to stealing all his gold. Even if you're the wrong gender and/or the wrong ''species'' to pass as Croesus. You can also deter the guard by being unable to speak (he leaves, saying "I'll be back when you're ready to speak to me!") or by eating a mimic corpse while hallucinating, which disguises you as an orange: [[RuleOfFunny "Hey! Who left that orange in here?"]].

Even if you're the wrong gender and/or the wrong ''species'' to pass as Croesus. This is justified by the ability to change form and gender being present and common enough that the master of Fort Ludios would have it as his disposal.

* YetAnotherStupidDeath: The TropeNamer. While it is possible to be merely surrounded and overpowered by fearsomely strong monsters, sometimes you might just fall prey to some lowly humanoid who happens to have found a wand of Death and zaps you with it, for example.

** Experienced players will sometimes ''waste'' wishes. The most egregious example I've seen was from an ascention where someone playing an Elven Priestess reached the Castle and got a 0:1 Wand of Wishing without either poison or fire resistance. Her four wishes: 2 blessed scolls of charging, 2 blessed tins green dragon meat (poison resistance), 2 blessed tins of red dragon meat (fire resistance), and a tin opener. That player still had one wish in reserve that they didn't need to use.

** And if the monster is a domestic type, (cats, dogs, horses) you can throw food at the non tame ones to tame them. If you throw food that they don't eat (fruit to cats and dogs, meat to horses) then that will make them peaceful if they were hostile, and hostile if they were peaceful (due to them being irritated at you pelting them with food)

''[=NetHack=]'' is cross-platform; it's safe to bet that if you're using an operating system that's still being developed, there's a port for it. In fact, Linux distributions tend to feature ports of it in their software repositories, and anyone with the proper programming skills can make ports or modifications because it is free and open-source software, released under the terms of the ''[=NetHack=]'' General Public License.

* AnachronismStew: Let's see... playable characters include an Franchise/IndianaJones-inspired AdventurerArchaeologist, a ConanTheBarbarian-style BarbarianHero, a [[OneMillionBC caveman]], a [[EverythingsBetterWithSamurai Samurai]], and a HawaiianShirtedTourist complete with a credit card (used to pick locks). Items and enemies include traditional staples like [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Dragons]], [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Demons]] and [[OurGiantsAreBigger Giants]], but also included are things like [[Film/{{Tron}} Grid Bugs]], [[GeniusBonus Quantum Mechanics]], and Jabberwocks. Finally, plastic, while fairly uncommon, isn't unknown either.

* SealedRoomInTheMiddleOfNowhere: Where you end up if you teleport by accident into a vault. Sure, there's a guard who comes along to check it, but if you refuse to give up all your gold [[spoiler:or keep saying you're Croesus]], you're stuck inside until you starve to death.
