* LoyalAnimalCompanion: Sufficiently leveling up your Animal Handling skills will gain you these - and they can end up saving your life. If Kevan makes an attempt on your life during the tournament, and you are skilled enough in falconry and participated in the falconry competition, your personal falcon companion will literally swoop in and attempt to claw his eyes out, saving your life. If you've spent enough time learning about dogs, your personal pet dog will display uncharacteristic aggression if you receive a box of chocolates, which tips you off that they're probably not safe to eat. If you are good enough with horses, they'll obey your commands and not run away, despite their own terror, if you go into the forest with Briony, which saves both of your lives.

** In the epilogues where Elodie has children, it usually isn't clearly stated exactly ''when'' they come along, though it is more than likely that she does give birth to her first child before she's twenty. [[spoiler:One ending where this definitely ''does'' happen occurs if Elodie executes Banion's sister, and then later decides to marry him - he gets her pregnant almost immediately after their wedding, but then poisons her, rendering her bedridden and incapable of ruling. When Elodie gives birth, he takes the baby from her and names her after his late sister.]]

* YouDidntAsk: Oh, boy, on so many occasions... basically, there are ''very'' few instances where other people tell Elodie about things without prompting, often resulting in AdultsAreUseless. One of the more prominent examples has to be a discussion with her father who's telling her that she'll have to be on her guard. If Elodie has studied Intrigue by this point, she can ask whether the royal court doesn't have agents for that sort of thing. This prompts the father to say that of course they have agents and ask what sort of problems they should be looking out for. Depending on the choice, they can defuse several otherwise difficult-to-avoid potential game overs. If Elodie ''hasn't'' got the Intrigue skills, she won't ask about the agents and her father won't tell about them, whereupon they'll presumably spend the game twiddling their thumbs in the castle rather than assassinating a rebel noble, noticing a war-mongering foreign nation, guarding Elodie against brigands or averting a peasant rebellion.

* LessonsInSophistication: This is a game entirely devoted to choosing which combination of Princess Lessons will allow Princess Elodie to survive until her fifteenth birthday, when she will be crowned Queen. The game takes ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman all the way UpToEleven; the player must use excessive SaveScumming and TrialAndErrorGameplay to figure out which seemingly unimportant lessons are going to save Elodie's life.

Togami leads the Shanjian invasion, and is the one who killed Queen Fidelia in the first place. And the Kraken is an ancient horror that must be dealt with in some fashion if it's ever awakened.]]

''Long Live The Queen'' is a viciously evil UsefulNotes/RenPy-based game where you, as a a woefully-unprepared princess, must manage Elodie's weekly schooling to teach her the skills she needs while [[EverythingTryingToKillYou everything is trying to kill her]]. Will you nurture her into a [[EvilOverlord cruel warlord]] who [[OffWithHisHead executes anyone and anything]] that could pose a threat? Or a MagnificentBitch wielding an extensive intelligence network in one hand and a web of alliances in the other? Or maybe even a badass MagicalGirlWarrior with a ''[[CoolPet personal attack falcon]]''?

* ForWantOfANail: Since the game almost encourages SaveScumming, it's easy to see what actions lead to which results, with some of them being rather convoluted. For example, imprisoning the Duchess of Ursul in the beginning leads to the possibility of sacrificing an entirely different character to a monster. [[spoiler:If Juliana is not there to save Elodie from a snake, she may get bitten, so Charlotte heals her and by doing so reveals that she has magical powers, which makes her an acceptable sacrifice in case Elodie accidentally summons the Kraken.]]
