** Kathool Atchoo, and his unsettling but awesome MindRape hallucinations.
** Roirr, who is a good candidate for more horrifying villain in the game. Every quest has him doing something inhumane and downright disturbing.

* GoodBadBugs: There's a slight glitch in the Earth Orb saga where you [[spoiler: play as En (minus Tropy)]]. This can help you fight enemies, but if you save it as your default armour, kiss your account goodbye.
** A few others:
*** Go to the travel map in Books 1&2; select where you want to go, anywhere will do, and then click on the screen so you're walking, timing it so that you're still walking when you click the Let's Go! button. Your character will sit down at the end of the ledge and fly away gracefully in midair a few yards below the travel griffon! This became an AscendedGlitch almost immediately; it was intentionally left in after the staff were alerted to it because it didn't break anything and was deemed too funny to fix, although it's averted for Book 3, which has a different map interface.
*** Occasionally, new armors in their testing phases will have a buggy cape slot that makes any capes or wings visibly worn with them look very noticeably larger than they're supposed to. The staff have to fix the problem before the official version is cleared for release, but they'll usually let the players have fun running around with gigantic wings for a while during testing first.
*** The game sometimes freezes in the middle of a turn during a battle. Used to be the only way around it was by refreshing the page, but the staff fixed the problem with an Un-Stick button that pops up on the screen after several seconds. The only problem with the fix? If it happens during an enemy's turn, there's a very good chance their turn will end up getting skipped, and you get an extra turn. Thus, a minor annoyance turns into a tactical windfall.

** After completing "Falconreach Idle", for some reason the player character will get reversed around. Until logging out or doing the quest again, your player will keep running backwards, which is absolutely hilarious. In addition, if riding the griffin in Book 1, the player character also gets ''flipped upside down''.
** There was originally a glitch regarding two of the Mogloween quests. In the 2012 quest "Croftward Bound" you could play as [[AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent [=DeathArrows=]]] in [[BalefulPolymorph cat form]], which is a pretty broken armor considering it can do up to 4 consecutive critical hits, without any mana cost. In addition the default weapon, "Claws" can do 20-95 darkness damage. Of course the armor is supposed to be temporary, but if you then go to the 2013 Mogloween quest "Forest Hunt", with the free-running minigame, upon completion of the quest the player's armor will get restored to the [=DeathArrows=] Cat, allowing you to continue using the OP armor until you logout. Unfortunately, the glitch eventually got fixed.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeArt: ''VideoGame/DragonFable'' probably has the most impressive art out of all of the ArtixEntertainment games, being the most realistic and detailed. It gets even better with Book 3, after the devs' technology improves, and the character redesigns after the TimeSkip are absolutely stunning.

** Aquella the young water elf, is extremely popular with her tragic backstory and involvement in the Water Orb Saga, which is considered to be one of the best arcs in the game.

* StrawmanHasAPoint / VillainHasAPoint: The Rose uses unsavory means to achieve their goal of ending the threat that the careless or even intentional misuse of magic poses, such as enslaving magical creatures and imprisoning magic users - including benign and even unambiguously good ones. Some of them, such as Akanthus and Saellah, go to such lengths in their methodology that they're practically villains in everything but name, and would be recognized for what they are the world over under better circumstances. Hell, some of the basic grunts are just [[DirtyCop thugs in a uniform]], and a lot of them are apathetic, at best. While the Hero is understandably less than sympathetic to the Rose because of their faults, the organization raises perfectly sensible arguments about why magic frequently causes more problems than it solves.

But the argument that the Rose doesn't get to decide what's best for Lore falls flat upon closer inspection precisely because of all the magical villainy the Hero has been fighting for years.
