Added DiffLines:

* SetSwordsToStun: Everyone just ends up knocked out at the end of any bout, despite the fact things such as being hit vertically by gigantic axe can happen during the fight. Siegfried even reassures his opponent that he "avoided [their] vitals, [they'll] live" in ''III'' regardless of the fact that his weapon, a {{BFS}} in all senses of the term, doesn't really have the necessary precision to avoid doing anything but catastrophic damage to an opponent. ''IV'' gets the most extreme with this as opponents can be hit by honest-to-goodness ''[[LaserBlade lightsabers]]'' and leave both their weapon and body unblemished. However, as stated under BloodlessCarnage, in the series canon the weapons do real damage and characters have died from wounds suffered during duels.

Added DiffLines:

* MookChivalry: Chronicles of the Sword both averts this and invokes it. When multiple units from both sides meet on the battlefield, they'll all attack each other simultaneously. However, you also have the option of settling the skirmish the old-fashioned way, in which case the game's combat system forces both sides' combatants to line up and fight one-at-a-time. Battles involving forts have the latter by default.

*** Voldo's bonus costume looks a lot like an Franchise/{{Alien}}. The design was later used for ghosts in Namco's ''VideoGame/GhostHunter.''

* RuleOfSexy: The outfits of most of the female characters aren't historically accurate in the slightest, but well, [[{{Fanservice}} you know...]]

Added DiffLines:

* ButNotTooForeign:
** Ivy is of complete Spanish ancestry, but was born and raised as a British aristocrat.
** Arthur is a British orphan who was raised in Japan.
** An even bigger example is Setsuka, who hails from an unknown European country but was raised Japanese. This is important, as she was shunned as a child for her overtly non-Japanese appearance until she was taken in by her master.

Added DiffLines:

* OddlyCommonRarity: There sure were a lot of ways for characters to stop aging, something that was billed as unique. Of all the returning characters, the only ones who aged were Siegfried, Mitsurugi, Hilde, and Voldo. Compare that to Ivy, Cervantes, Maxi, Kilik, Edge Master, Tira, Raphael, Dampierre, Algol, and Aeon. They ''do'' get around this with Nightmare, Astaroth, and Yoshimitsu, as they are ''technically'' different characters but [[LegacyCharacter share the same identity]]. This was one of the reasons why ''V'' was hit with a backlash -- they aged so few of the returning characters yet still cut out fan-favorites like Taki, Talim, Setsuka, and Seong Mi-Na for "[[StayInTheKitchen being too old]]".

* ImprobableAge: In a series with a roster consisting primarily of adults, there are some characters who are in their teens yet can fight with the best of them, such as Talim, Amy, and Tira.
