* NintendoHard: To the point where there is no shame in dying on the second or third level if you're a new player. One can die in less than 50 turns if they don't know what they're doing, and it's not unheard of for players to die on their ''first turn'' (but you have to try fairly hard to do that).

* VideoGameCaringPotential: Helping a monster out of a pit might make it peaceful, and you also might get an alignment boost if you're Lawful.
* VideogameCrueltyPotential: Have a chat with the nurses. They're not mean! They'll go right on [[CherryTapping trying]] to get you to take off that armor and put away that weapon. They'll heal you! And they'll keep trying to heal you even as you chop them up and tin them with your tinning kit.
* VideogameCrueltyPunishment: Your patron god has very firm ideas on what is and is not right action. This doesn't mean you're supposed to be well-behaved. It means you're not supposed to be ''caught''.

Helping a monster out of a pit might make it peaceful, and you also might get an alignment boost if you're Lawful.
** Caring for your pet is this, as you're encouraged to keep it with you and letting it die gives a luck penalty.

* BasiliskAndCockatrice: Cockatrices appear here. If you hear the cockatrice's hiss or are touched by a living cockatrice there's a chance that you'll slowing start [[TakenForGranite turning to stone]]; this can be cancelled by [[spoiler:eating a lizard corpse or eating/drinking something acid]]. Touching a cockatrice (living or dead) with your bare skin will ''[[OneHitKill instantly]]'' turn you to stone. Gloved characters can take advantage of this by picking up a cockatrice corpse [[ImprovisedWeapon and using it to bash monsters]] (in which case ''[=NetHack=]'' players will call it a [[FanNickname "rubber chicken"]]). But keep in mind that gloved monsters can ''also'' pick up a cockatrice corpse and use it against you.
** The variant ''Slash'EM'' also has the basilisk, which is basically the same as the cockatrice, except that it doesn't hiss and its corpse it too big to use as an Improvised Weapon.

** 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. 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!

* ClothingDamage: Corrosive attacks can burn, rust, rot, and corrode your equipment. ''Fooproofing'' your gear prevents this. Being forced to shapeshift into something bigger will destroy your clothing too.

''Fooproofing'' your gear prevents this. Being forced to shapeshift polymorph into something a bigger creature will destroy your clothing too.

* 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.
