* MemeticBadass: Due to his awesome looking Dark Silver Armor, ability to hold a giant mace in one hand and never let his shield down in the other, and fighting you all to protect Maiden Astrea, Garl Vinland was declared the manliest character in the game.

** The Old Monk has a gimmick that can qualify him as one. He [[spoiler: summons another player in the same level range who is attempting to co-op or invade in any block of Latria. The player gets a boosted health pool, full access to healing items and spells, spirit form advantages like higher damage and Foe's Ring, all of their equipment sans their headpiece, and some boss-only advantages like an automatic, infinite-use homing soulmass attack. If you're unlucky, he'll summon an experienced player who will probably proceed to wipe you out unless you have some competent co-op buddies. In the case that Old Monk doesn't summon another player, though, he'll just be a glorified black phantom NPC who isn't particularly powerful or smart.]]

** World 2-2 is one of those areas where having the right gear can help quite a bit, but it still offers a duo of [=NPC=] Black Phantoms set up to ambush and slaughter the unwary, hard-to-kill giant insect enemies, treasures that are placed on narrow ledges over deadly pits and ''in lava'', tight corridors that are hard to fight in, highly damaging explosives, and tops it all off with a maze of tunnels. The level's one mercy, that there's a shortcut to the boss almost at the start, still involves having to very carefully jump down from platform to platform or else plummet to your death. Even the fact that this is probably the most generous stage in the game when it comes to finding loot can be a big problem, since there's ''so much'' of it and you're saddled with an item carry limit, unless your character has a high item carry limit or you use the Ring of Herculean Strength.

*** The combination of the Thief Ring and the Poison Gas spell can even [[spoiler:let you effortlessly kill the notoriously difficult FinalBoss.]]

** The Reapers themselves can qualify. True, there's only three of them in the entire game and two of them can be taken care of with sniping or (with some skill or luck) by knocking them down a pit. However, if you have to take them on fair and square, you'll find they have a strong Soul Arrow spell and a special "touch of death" attack that can kill you instantly, no matter what.

* AntiClimaxBoss: [[spoiler:After all you've went through getting there, the final boss turns out to be a barely animate blob. Considering the blob's former form was a contender for ThatOneBoss, beating it up manages to be quite satisfying anyway.]]

** The World Tendency system is certainly good on paper and well intentioned, but it unfairly punished new players by increasing the difficulty of the worlds while also weakening the difficulty for players who wanted more of a challenge. There are also sidequests and hidden weapons exclusive to either pure white/black tendency, and the tendency always adjust to the server average(usually grey tendency) when playing online after you turn back on the PS3, so many players felt they HAD to manipulate to system in order to get anywhere.

** Also can be considered for Rydell for first-time players in 3-1. Hearing someone yelling and begging you to help them when you can't see them made this troper very nervous.
