* AbortedArc / WhatCouldHaveBeen: The origional draft of the story had the player spending a few books [[spoiler:helping Gaspacio build another clockwork, named Abel, to match the power of Kane, and the final battle with Kane happening in El Dorado]]. However, after book 15 spent 3 years in DevelopmentHell, they just wrapped up Kane's story arc there.
* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: These are very common. The player's companions even begin to complain about the "wondrous" places the player takes them.
** There's even a shanty town in the sewers of the isle of dogs.

** Painfully averted with one quest that requires the player to sail from Aquila to Subata in Mooshu, back to Aquila, and then back to Subata, then back to Aquila one last time. Did I forget to mention that these worlds are also nearly at the opposite ends of the world at the time of this mission's release?

However, the Marleybone Royal Navy is beginning to regroup and the Valencian navy's army of clockworks, called the Armada, is growing. The Armada's leader, Commander Kane, has made it his sworn duty to bring all piracy to an end and unite the entire Spiral under his flag. In the meantime, rumors of pieces of a treasure map leading to an island made of gold have brought many young greenhorns out of the woodwork while also luring older pirates back from their [[RetiredBadAss retirement]], [[HesJustHiding seclusion]], [[BackFromTheDead and even their graves]].

* FlunkyBoss: Quite a few of these tend to appear through the course of the game. Early on, there's [[ShoutOut Fin]] [[VinDiesel Dorsal]] who combines this with DamageSpongeBoss. Later, there's Commander Davis, who is also a damage sponge and has three waves of mooks accompanying him, and then there's [[ThatOneBoss Scylla]]. It's a ship battle where if you don't have your friends disabling the spawns that appear on the ship fighting it, you will be forced against a questionable amount of [[DemonicSpider demonic spiders]] that get free attacks anytime anyone dodges, can take a lot of punishment due to being [[MightyGlacier buccaneers]], love to rush down foes due to the sheer amount of them, and have [[NightmareFace unbelievably creepy faces]] for a family game.
