** Chitrachs deserve special mention, not because they're all that tough compared to Doomguards, but because the Eastern Gallery in the fourth game was made into a ScrappyLevel purely by their presence. (To be more specific, more than two hundred of them were present.) And chitraches tend to be near null bugs, a creature who can render mages/priests useless with the terrible act of... being close to them. Yeah.

* CompleteMonster (or MagnificentBastard): Gladwell seems to have done more damage to Avernum through sabotage than any organization, demon or dragon. And even though he earns a death at the hands of the player in every game he's appeared he canonically won't stay dead [[spoiler: until perhaps the end]].

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Giant Intelligent Friendly Talking Spiders. The in-game narration will briefly consider the possibility that you've just gone insane. At least one [[EngagingConversation proposes]] [[InterspeciesRomance to you.]]

** If you thought the Eastern Gallery was bad, wait until the outside of Khoth's Library at the end of the game, where you get regularly swarmed by chitrachs which
1. Now have ''three'' attacks on their turn (two is more than enough to stunlock anyone who isn't wearing the heaviest armor possible)
2. Are highly resistance to any form of magic, in a game where [[LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards Linear Warriors Quadratic Wizards]] rules supreme.
3. When they spawn, they completely surround you, and you have to fight 6+ at a time.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Many fans felt this about the engine switch the series underwent for Avernum IV through VI. Also a case of TheyCopiedItSoItSucks--the later games are nicknamed "Averforge" for their similarities to {{Geneforge}}.

** Spraying Shrubs don't attack directly, but spray the entire party with acid every turn. You tend to encounter several at once, so it can take several turns to get rid of them all. Meanwhile, it's easy to die without even realizing you're dying.
