* MarySue: According to [[http://nwvault.ign.com/View.php?view=Interviews.Detail&id=306 Valine's interview]], the mod began pretty much as a ''Hordes of the Underdark'' "fanfic" wherein every NPC was supposed to react properly to her character's high Charisma score. Over the time, however, it has evolved in a very different direction.

Added DiffLines:

* BaseBreaker: Vico. He has a loud portion of fans who like him (for some [[{{Badass}} good]] reasons, some [[DracoInLeatherPants bad]] ones), and an equally loud portion who despise him for [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil what he did]] [[KarmaHoudini to the Princess]].

Added DiffLines:

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Simon is very popular for being a {{Badass}} prince who always treats the Princess with courtesy--at one point the two of them are trapped together, butt-naked, and while he's obviously attracted he respects her personal space and doesn't try to force himself on her. ''He is the only male in the game who does this''. Add in some surprisingly cute ShipTease and you've got players wishing he was an actual companion and LoveInterest.

* TheWoobie / IronWoobie / JerkassWoobie : The player character can be played as any variation of these, but is always definitely a woobie.

* AngstWhatAngst: Depending of her dialog choices, the Princess can appear like this. The same dialogs features also choices which sounds exactly like the opposite.

* DesignatedHero: Christano is essentially TheHero of his adventuring party. He also has absolutely no problem with attempting to sleep with his hired rogue, despite already having a girlfriend (who is sleeping about five feet away from where he's propositioning the new girl), will attempt to use his clerical rank to pressure the Princess into sex, and while he won't try to rape her, he'll be verbally abusive if refused. The game does not call him out on this, but the Princess most certainly can.
* DracoInLeatherPants: Vico
* GoodBadBugs: At the end of the Golden Chalice quest, there is a glitch in [[spoiler:Hyath]] dialog which allows the Princess to gain infinite xp, gold, and reward weapon/armor.

Vico. Considering what a twisted individual he is, even with his FreudianExcuse, the fact that he has so many fans and almost all fanfiction writings for ADWR seem to have him as the Princess' romantic choice and give him even more [[FreudianExcuse freudian excuses]], is... disquieting.

Most of the opening sequence. And [[spoiler:Caron and Tony Blake's deaths]]. And [[spoiler:the Dhorn assault on the Bear Pit, killing or capturing all of the members of the thieves guild]]. And more.more.
** A rather unusual, but nonetheless effective usage: At the beginning of part 2, chapter 6, you [[spoiler:lose all the shiny magical gear that you have been collecting throughout the game in a very taunting manner: you still have it, but it loses all of its special properties--weapons and armor revert to their basic models, potions won't heal, magic items won't work, etc. Your equipment may not be a character itself, but you grow attached to many pieces and come to rely on them like on a trusted party member, so seeing them suddenly turn into a pile of useless junk that you have to leave behind (because even the bags of holding stop working and you're probably immediately over-encumbered) can be devastating]].

* LesYay: Aside from a possible relationship with Pia, the Princess can have a sexual encounter with 2 female {{Non Player Character}}s in Part 2.

* LesYay: Aside from a possible relationship with Pia, the Princess can have a sexual encounter with 2 female {{Non Player Character}}s in Part 2.2, not to mention an... interesting way of recovering the hidden key from Tarleth in the "Captured" sidequest, which she obviously enjoys.
