* FridgeBrilliance: The final fight with [[spoiler: Arantir]] has him summoning a Spectral Dragon to attack you. In [=HoMM5=], [[spoiler: Arantir]] has a default ability called Avatar of Death, which summons one highly powerful Spectral Dragon onto the battlefield.

* GameBreaker: The kick attack. It does minimal damage, but it cannot be blocked and always does knockback. Abusing the kick to push enemies into the astonishing number of fires, chasms, and conveniently-placed spike racks can make several sections of the game very, very easy. After patches it's mildly balanced out by being relatively tiring, making it harder to spam.

* ScrappyLevel: Chapter 6's crypts. Poison is insanely deadly and this level is filled with poison spewing zombies that are hard to kill. On top of that, it's a confusing puzzle fest that is hard to navigate.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Arantir, despite his status as main antagonist, feels very underutilized. This is particularly disappointing since he's pretty much the only character with any depth to him. [[MauveShirt Duncan]] gets it even worse. He has about three lines, yet still manages to be very sympathetic.

** Arantir was eventually addressed in the ''Tribes of the East'' expansion for ''HeroesOfMightAndMagic V'', which expanded on his {{Backstory}} and provided the reasons for his motivations.

Added DiffLines:

** In the same cutscene that introduces Xana, Master Phenrig makes a particular gesture very much like what Sareth uses when casting [[spoiler:the Charm spell]]. When Sareth has a nightmarish flashback to that scene, that's the moment where events start to diverge. [[spoiler: Phenrig charmed you into going along peacefully with a demonic possession and then into forgetting it]].

* AwesomeButImpractical: The inferno spell does tremendous damage to a foe standing right in front of you, and blinds you while it is being cast so that you can't see if the foe has stepped back out of the fire. With practice this needn't be a problem however.



* {{Flynning}}: Sareth's wild flailings bear almost no resemblance whatsosever to actual bladeplay if Flurry of Blows is the player's primary way of attacking.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsSexy: Very obviously deliberate in the case of Xana, who is only a voice in your head for much of the game, yet most people agree that she still manages to leave her IncorruptiblePurePureness rival for your affections in the dust.

* DracoInLeatherPants: Xana, [[Stripperiffic ironically]]...[[DistractedByTheSexy or not]]. Just go onto any YouTube video featuring a scene with her and read the comments. You will begin to wonder if some people understand what "Succubus" means.
