* ApocalypseHow: Type 0: The coming ice age that de Aldersberg foresaw will apparently turn the descendants of humanity into savage animals, but he says that the only way for humanity to survive would be a mass exodus south, which he gives as the reason for creating his mutants.

* ContinuityPorn: More often and gratuitous than the standard porn, with many references to the novels thrown in for no other reason than to please the fans. On the other hand, the game is perfectly playable by those who don't know original material, and according to WordofGod, they are an AlternateUniverse sequel to the books with story input by Sapkowski.

** Geralt's knowledge of fantasy tropes is not always used to make fun of them, however. They sometimes are very true. For example, in the side-quest "Beauty and the Beast," [[spoiler:the cure for werewolves is sought by [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Carmen]] for her lover [[DaChief Vincent de Meis]]. Several remedies are found, from the folk (wolf's aloe sewn in a shirt), to the scientific (a potion containing a virgin's tear) to the really corny, fairy-tale remedies (true love). Shockingly, it's the corny one that actually works.]]
** It gets better. Geralt openly admits that he's been specifically trained to see through the schemes of intelligent monsters that are often GenreSavvy enough to utilize misconceptions of the common folk concerning their nature.

* GainaxEnding: The Epilogue takes place in [[spoiler:a vision of the distant future created by the Grand Master of the Flaming Rose, who is conjuring apparitions of people Geralt met while rambling only somewhat coherently about philosophy in the middle of an arctic wasteland inhabited by monstrous distant descendants of the human race. And there are enough facts to make it very plausible that he really is an older Alwin who traveled back in time, though none of the characters directly says or implies it.]]

* ParryingBullets: Subverted when the Professor comments that he's heard witchers can parry arrows in flight just before he shoots Leo with a crossbow. Later played straight when Geralt blocks a crossbow bolt, causing the Professor to remark, 'I guess it was true after all.'

->''What would you get if you took the corpse of Creator/JRRTolkien, ground it up into a fine powder and snorted it off the doughy breasts of a prostitute suffering from Tourettes Syndrome? Well for starters,'' ''[[{{Dissimile}} you'd get a throatful of dead writer, then the police would probably want to talk to you, and no doubt you'd make an enemy of Mrs. Tolkien]]''. ''What you probably'' won't ''get is TheWitcher, because it's a VideoGame and more easily acquired from your local electronics retailer, you idiot.''
