** The Dungeon Master is a mysterious character who participates in the story and interacts directly with the rest of the characters. In the tabletop game, the Dungeon Master is not a character within the game. The Dungeon Master sets up the campaign, runs the game, and can play the role of [=NPCs=] or monsters.

* CanonWelding: The series is explicitly canon with shares aspects of the ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' setting, setting (which was first created a few years after the cartoon), due to the presence of Tiamat, a comic crossover with Elminster, and a mention in ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII''.''VideoGame/BaldursGateII''. While 'the Realm' is not on the same planet, the tie-ins suggest that getting from one to the other is pretty easy by dimension-traveling standards.



* CrapsackWorld: At the start of the series, Venger and other evils have overrun the Realm for hundreds of years destroying or imprisoning any forces of good and reducing the the Realm to [[SwampsAreEvil evil swamps]], dark forests, and wastelands with its inhabitants mostly living in fear in scattered villages or small towns with only a few exceptions. And the BigBad Venger is near his goal of complete conquest. Fortunately, it is a mutable crapsack world where the efforts of the heroes slowly breathes new life into dead ares, brings back lost heroes, and vanquishes many of the evils terrorizing the land.

* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Dungeon Master is known only by his title and, likewise, he almost always addresses the kids by their titles. (Sheila is the exception; the Dungeon Master refers to her as "child" rather than by her title, presumably due to said title being "thief".) Venger does the same, but his relationship with the kids is hardly a first-name one.
** DM addresses Diana by name once, when she was heartbroken, reassuring her that giving up her soulmate saved hundreds of people.
** DM also calls Bobby by his first name once, in "Servant of Evil."
* EvilIsNotAToy: In "Treasure of Tardos", Venger uses a gargantuan dragon-demon hybrid to break down the gates to a city, but the beast wrestles free from his control and threatens to completely destroy the very realm he's trying to conquer.

* TheLoad: Uni.



* PintSizedPowerhouse: Bobby, although it's likely his strength comes from his club. (The tie-in D&D book ''The Animated Series Handbook'' implies it's a bit of both - he's unusually strong to begin with, but the club enhances it further to superhuman levels)

* PortalNetwork: The gem-studded valley in 'Prison Without Walls' turns out to be a deactivated one. In a larger sense, 'the Realm' has connections to a number of other worlds... though understandably the heroes are only principally concerned with connections to Earth.

* TheChessmaster: The Dungeon Master hardly ever acts directly, for unrevealed reasons. He tends to offer just enough guidance to keep the heroes headed in the right direction, and relies on them to use their own brains and judgement.



* ExactWords: Presto's hat tends to use the laziest interpretation possible. For instance, when he wished for an enemy to be removed from his sight, a bucket was magically conjured to drop onto Presto's head (making it impossible to see the enemy).
