* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: It doesn't make much sense that Malthael sends his Reapers to destroy the Pandemonium gate in Heaven. He wanted to stop the Nephalem sure, but Imperius probably would've done that himself and tried to kill them anyway. The Angels the Reapers are forced to kill attempting it only turns Heaven against them and convinces Impy to help stop him.

** Another one: During Act 3, a runner from Westmarch reports that the king will send no reinforcements to fight imaginary demons. Tyrael harshly replies, "Perhaps he'll believe when his kingdom burns to ashes around him!" Guess what happens in ''Reaper of Souls''....
* HellIsThatNoise: All the monsters in the game have soundbites specifically designed to enervate and break focus.
** The horn in the expansion that signifies you're about to meet a nemesis and will, at least on any dififculty above master, almost certainly be dead in 30 seconds or so. Disturbing on regular, terrifying on hardcore.

* AwesomeMusic: Quite a lot of it here, but the biggest example is "And The Heavens Shall Tremble," the track that plays during much of the action of Act IV. And ''Reaper of Souls'' has, if anything, upped the ante in terms of awesome music.

*** AscendedMeme: The Blizzard employee's online name (Bashiok) is then used for a special mob in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''. The loot the mob drops allows players to summon a burning, dancing tree.



** AscendedMeme: Certain Diablo characters mock Azmodan in ''Videogame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' about his habit of revealing his plans to the enemy.

** The "Bottomless Potion of..."

** Malthael may be the FinalBoss in the main story, but in AdventureMode, he's just a repeatably fightable boss, and when you do... yeah, unless you're strong, good luck with dealing with those constantly spawning mists of death that drains your life FAST if you stay in place, him going SpinAttack for constant DPS, the highly damaging Skull Spiral, summoning many enemies that likes to teleport and blast you off for high damage... If you're up to some extra achievements that requires you to kill him quick, he can get annoying.

** [[spoiler: Adria is revealed in her betrayal to have crossed this long ago when it is revealed that she created Leah to be a host for Diablo and the other six Evils long ago by letting the human-bound Diablo impregnate her! To take it even further, due to how disoriented his host was this is implied to not be entirely consensual. In other words, Adria date raped Satan. The utter cruelty of the betrayal in question is also seriously damning for Adria, especially since it results in the death of one of the most sympathetic characters in the game and makes the entire fourth act of the game possible]].

This is also regarded an in-universe reaction: During the actual confrontation of Adria in the next act in the expansion, the heroes made it clear that by this act, [[PrepareToDie Adria revoked her rights to live or call herself human and she doesn't have any places in the future that humanity will shape]]]].
