* RemixedLevel: In-universe, Raseir is this to Shapeir, as its twin sister city. The Hero gets to experience it as a very jarring dark mirror to Shapeir, complete with dilapidation (that poor fountain!) and despair, and [[TropesAreNotBad the gap between both is very effective]]. Bonus points for it actually re-using exactly the same data in-game, with mainly a tweaked color palette.

* BackStab: In the remake, thieves who sneak around in the desert sometimes encounter enemies who are unaware of their presence. Throw a dagger in their back ForMassiveDamage (often fatal). It's not honorable, but it's dreadfully effective.

** The sapphire pin, in the Thief's path, where it's mentioned when you get it how it reminds you of the tools you learned to pick locks with. Handy when all the rest of your inventory gets confiscated and you're thrown in jail.

* InitiationCeremony: If you have had enough Paladin points, Rakeesh will offer you to become a Paladin, bestowing upon you his flaming sword.



** If you ignore the Saurus-seller too often, you get one for not buying the Saurus.

* WizardingSchool: The Wizard's Institute of Technocery. Characters capable of using magic can go there, pass their tests, and gain acceptance into the school. However, actually choosing to attend the school is a NonStandardGameOver, since the four masters that administer the tests all insist that you remain at W.I.T. and study for about 20 years before rejoining the rest of the world, and they want you to start immediately (and of course, if you choose to stay, Shapeir is destroyed because [[HoldingOutForAHero you weren't there to save it. On the other hand, you also ensure that Ad Avis can't free Iblis]]). Refuse and the masters get miffed, but [[EccentricMentor Erasmus]] congratulates you on making the better choice, because how are you going to make a difference in the world when you're stuck at W.I.T. and not putting your magic to good use?

* CombatPragmatist: The Fighter's final challenge at the end of the game is a duel with [[TheDragon Khaveen]], and the guy is no slouch when it comes to swordplay. The beginning of the battle has him disarming you, then pointing his sword at yours on the floor, indicating that you should retrieve it to continue the fight. Likewise, shortly afterwards, you will disarm him. You can take the easy way out and kill him immediately with a slash attack, which is also helpful for the strict time limit that you're under. [[HonorBeforeReason Or you can tell him to retrieve his sword and continue the fight honorably, which is required to become a paladin.]] In the remake, this is the point at which he'll pull out the stops and seriously try to kick your ass.

The beginning of the battle has him disarming you, then pointing his sword at yours on the floor, indicating which point he'll demand that you should retrieve it grovel for mercy and try to continue the fight. Likewise, kill you if you refuse. If you dodge his attempt to finish you, then shortly afterwards, afterwards you will disarm him.

* IAmNotLeftHanded: In the remake, you can find a villainous example in Khaveen if you're a Fighter. In the beginning, you exchange blows and he seems rather simplistic in his combat style. Then, he knocks your sword out of your hands, which you can retrieve with some dodging. After doing the same to him, you have the opportunity of [[CombatPragmatist killing an unarmed man]], or giving him the opportunity to retrieve his sword. If you do the latter, Khaveen will get serious and the combat will be ''seriously'' difficult.
