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.

** Early versions of .42 had a bug which caused horses of all creatures (and only horses) to spawn in ludicrously huge numbers, often up to 3600 per site. It got to the point where what was identified in-game as a goblin settlement would in reality consist of one goblin and thousands upon thousands of horses. Several people even found the game would let them control a horse in Adventurer mode.

** In versions .40 and .42, wandering bandits and armies can be composed of nothing but domesticated animals. Such groups can even invade and take over civilized sites in world gen, [[AnimalFarm Animal Farm-style]].

** The delivery of magma to your fort in bags carried by traders tends to lead to your depot exploding, but it's hard to argue with any trade good so dwarfy.

** Thirsty? Oh hey, I'm on the beach! [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything Oh, I can't drink salt water?]] No problem! When you fall into water, your clothing and external organs get wet with an item called a "water covering". It's never salty.

** Historical figures can survive having their [[OffWithHisHead necks ripped off]] in world-gen, only to [[RealityEnsues instantly die]] once they show up during actual play.
