* FrontlineGeneral: Generals are given small units of bodyguard cavalry, allowing them to engage with the rest of their troops. However, their deaths can often drive an entire army to rout. The same goes for naval combat, in which the destruction of the admiral's flagship can shatter the confidence of a fleet.

** In ''Arena'', each of the 20 players has a famous leader front and center on their first unit, serving as commander. Imagine Julius Caesar fighting alongside a unit of 100 swordsmen or javelin throwers. Given that the leader will rarely survive the battle, the penalty is accordingly tame.

* IncestIsRelative: You can order your princesses to marry within the royal family. In ''Medieval'', it's also a surprisingly common trait for your units to acquire, always with their daughter. Nothing is stopping a prince from having a relationship with his daughter. Even if he isn't married, and is in his teens...

** Diplomacy in the various games sometimes gets absolutely crazy. Egypt in ''Rome'' would tell you that "[[VideoGame/ZeroWing All your Base are Belong to Us]]", and in ''Empire'', every single response from the Swedish diplomat is a quote from an {{ABBA}} song.

* FacingTheBulletsOneLiner: Or close to it, anyway. When a major clan is destroyed (and thus the daimyo dies) in ''Shogun'' and ''Shogun 2'' (only when it happens to the player-controlled one in the latter), he recites a historical "death poem", written by samurai before they either committed {{seppuku}} or went off to a LastStand.

* WarriorMonk: In the ''Shogun'' games, of course. In ''Shogun 2'', they are the best at what they do (naginata warrior monks at melee combat, bow warrior monks at archery), but they lack armor and thus are vulnerable to enemy arrows and melee attack (respectively).

In ''Shogun 2'', they are the best at what they do (naginata warrior monks highly specialized elite warriors, with Naginata Warrior Monks excelling at melee combat, bow warrior monks combat and Bow Warrior Monks excelling at archery), but ranged combat. However, they are expensive to recruit and field, and their lack armor and thus are of armour renders them vulnerable to enemy arrows and melee attack (respectively).being shot to death by arrows; Bow Warrior Monks are particularly fragile, being virtually incapable of defending themselves in melee.
