** Due to a few of the particulars of combat and skill training, along with an overpowered bite attack, carp in previous versions had the ability to very quickly tear your people to shreds.

** Make a small room full of low-quality menacing spike traps. Fill those traps with practice spears. Attach them to a lever or repeater. Station a squad of dorfs in the room and watch their dodging, blocking, armor using, shield using, and weapon skills go up at a ridiculous rate. As a bonus, if any of them actually manage to get hurt, it gives your doctors practice, too!

** In older versions, the so-called "[[FanNickname Danger Room]]" method of military training. Make a small room full of low-quality menacing spike traps. Fill those traps with practice spears. Attach them to a lever or repeater. Station a squad of dorfs in the room and watch their dodging, blocking, armor using, shield using, and weapon skills go up at a ridiculous rate. As a bonus, if any of them actually manage to get hurt, it gives your doctors practice, too!too! Later versions have significantly increased the injury potential of poorly-aimed practice spears while also increasing the skill-gain done from sparing with other dwarfs, so [[{{Nerf}} this is no longer the game-breaking training method it once was]].

Added DiffLines:

* FanNickname:
** "Dorfs" for dwarves, "Dorf Fort", "Urist [=McX=]" for any given dwarf, "Cutebolds" for kobolds, "Hidden Fun Stuff" for [[spoiler:gateways to hell]].
** "Cotton Candy" for [[spoiler:adamantine]], "Clowns" for [[spoiler:demons]], and "The circus" for [[spoiler:hell]].
** "Party People" for [[spoiler:ghosts, due to a rather infamous incident]].
** "Goblinite" or "Goblin Christmas" for the vast bounty of iron weapons and armors a Goblin Siege would bring, once your forces had killed them.
** "Zombie Spirals" for a common occurrence when the player embarks in an evil biome that raises everything as undead. The more that get killed, the more undead there are to fight, until your dwarves are completely overwhelmed.

** In previous versions there were the elephants, then the carp (even Toady One thought he made them too strong). Now it's Giant Badgers. You also occasionally run into randomly generated enemies that are made of solid stone or even metal, and are as hard to kill as that would imply. To make things even worse, if the RandomNumberGod hates you, they can also have a dust attack that in its most deadly form an InstantDeathRadius with about the same range as your archers.\\

** Elephants have been toned down greatly from the days of {{Boatmurdered}}, but [[LightIsNotGood unicorns]] have since gained a reputation as psychotic serial killers who brutally murder dwarves at random.

* MoralEventHorizon: Mermaid farming upset Toady so much he nerfed the value of mermaid-based materials in the next update so it would stop happening.

What]]? Possibly inverted -- at this point, Dwarf Fortress is popular enough that "people who would never have heard of Slaves to Armok 1 if not for Dwarf Fortress having that conspicuous 2 in its full title" probably outnumber "people who might have actually played Slaves to Armok 1 if not for Dwarf Fortress being more polished and popular" by quite a lot.

* ComplainingAboutPeopleNotLikingTheShow: This is...a bit more common than newcomers may be comfortable with; a somewhat common response to new players expressing displeasure for the game is "no, you just need to play it more because [[NintendoHard Losing]] [[EarnYourFun Is]] [[MemeticMutation Fun]]!" While there are those who eventually warm up to the game, it can be irritating to be met with these sorts of responses if you just plain don't want to play anymore.
