* AndIMustScream: Ignus. [[spoiler: When the gate spell failed (the one a previous Incarnation forced him to use), his body became a living portal to the Plane of Fire. When this happened, a large portion of Sigil was burned down. Several wizards pooled their talents to contain him. You find him trapped, unable to speak and in terrible agony until you can free him. Oh, and he is the local bar's main attraction, so people come from all over just to see him.]]



* BodyHorror: Poor, poor Ignus. All he wanted was power, and what he got was [[spoiler: turned into a ''living portal to the Elemental Plane of Fire''. He eternally burns because a previous Incarnation was trying to find a way to Ravel.]]

* BonusBoss: If the Morridor's Box quest is resolved by [[SchmuckBait exiting the Hive like you're explicitly warned not to do]] the fiend inside will escape, only to be found in [[spoiler:the ruins of Curst]] at a much later juncture. It's the single most powerful creature in the game.

** Dak'kon's spirit weapon, the Zerth blade, changes appearance and damage effects as his alignment changes. Lawful and good shifts make the blade bright and shiny, while chaotic and evil actions make the blade black and spiky. As the blade is made from ''his mind'', the appearance correctly reflects his mood.

* ArmorIsUseless: The game features only a dozen suits and each of them can only be worn by a specific character. Morte, Nordom and Ignus can't wear any armor at all. The Nameless One, Annah and Fall-From-Grace can only wear clothes; the only clothes the Nameless One can wear are a disguise which became useless outside the Morgue. Dak'kon and Vailhor wears real armor (leather for the first, steel for the second) but they can't change and their armor don't give them any specific bonus.

** Sigil is called "the City of Doors" for a reason: ''every single arch'' or similarly limited passageway may be a portal to ''somewhere''--provided you hold the proper key. A key in turn can be anything a person might be carrying or doing while passing through an arch, such as hum a melody.
** {{Deconstructed|Trope}} with one NPC, Ingress. She is deathly afraid of this, and with ''good reason''. She's been desperately searching for the portal back home for ''decades'', but the portals she found led to dangerous places, and [[BodyHorror she suffered dearly for it]]. Now she refuses to walk through anything that could be a portal, for fear she'll activate it and be sent to some horrible place. [[VideoGameCaringPotential You can have a planeswalker guide her home]].

* GoneHorriblyWrong: The Nameless One originally sought immortality in order to [[spoiler:atone for an atrocity so terrible one normal lifespan wouldn't be enough]. Unfortunately he lost his memories upon his first death, including those of [[spoiler:said atrocity, so he never atoned]]... and the subsequent damage caused by his unnatural presence since is threatening to ''break the universe''.
