Over the course of two millennia, Pious [[HistoricalWrapSheet causes numerous tragedies for humanity]]: destabilizing the Holy Roman Empire by killing its emperor; building a monument to his Ancient out of the bodies of countless slaves he has captured; and engineering a conflict in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI within a hospital to feed many injured soldiers to his bloodthirsty demon servant. Using a time of planetary alignment, Pious tries to bring his Ancient master into reality, putting the whole world at risk of destruction to maintain his power.

* CompleteMonster: Pious Augustus is TheDragon to an [[EldritchAbomination ancient evil god]] (you can choose from three), but he is the main antagonist. When you first see him, he is a playable character, a Roman legionnaire who stumbled on an ancient temple in Persia. In the end, he is corrupted by one of three artifacts and serves that god. It is not known when he crosses the MoralEventHorizon, but he is clearly over it for the rest of the game, committing horrific acts gleefully, including throwing hundreds of innocent people into a tower of corpses during Roberto Bianci's scenario (him included). He kills other characters you play as as well. It is also implied in one cutscene that he may intend to betray his god in the future (during the Xel'lotath arc) - take ''that'' much with a grain of salt, as Xel'lotath is [[MadGod completely out of her mind]], but the rest still stands.

Added DiffLines:

** Pious, especially if you have the Enchanted Gladius, being fairly easy to stay out of his melee reach and his only other attack being the Magickal Attack, which you can easily avoid by moving.

* DisappointingLastLevel: Alex's chapter is largely a repeat of Edward's chapter, but with the gauntlet of guardian monsters replaced with a series of obnoxious electrified floors, making you stop every thirty seconds to replenish your shield.

Added DiffLines:

* GoddamnedBats: Trappers, which can only be hit with projectile weapons, usually come in groups, are small and tend to blend in with the scenery, make [[MostAnnoyingSound annoying chirping sounds]] when alerted, have deceptively long reach with their attack, and their attack teleports you to a small room with some enemies and health/magic/sanity refuelers and forces you to waste several seconds getting out of it.

Added DiffLines:

* ItsEasySoItSucks: Between your infinite magick reserves and the ability to target enemy heads and arms when fighting them, this is a common criticism of the game, especially with its tendency to be lumped into the SurvivalHorror genre, which it is decidedly not.

* {{Narm}}: Alex is menaced by Pious [[spoiler:posing as Edward's ghost]] at one point, and she sends him away with an angry "Get away from me!" and what amounts to a gesture that looks like she was going to [[GroinAttack grab his crotch]], given that she was sitting and he was standing over her.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: [[spoiler:Mantorok]]. MagnificentBastard who created a [[spoiler:millennia-spanning GambitRoulette and exploited an EnemyMine situation with humanity in order to eliminate the only possible checks on his power]]? Ultimately benign entity who is willing to coexist peacefully with humanity? Some combination of the two? [[TakeAThirdOption A third option]] is he's merely taking {{Revenge}} against those who have effectively given him a [[CruelAndUnusualDeath painful death]] lasting thousands of years.

* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper: Given all the numerous times a visual depiction of each Ancient's dominance over each other is shown, you will ''never'' find yourself forgetting how the ElementalRockPaperScissors works. You also need to sit through all the tutorials regardless of whether or not you've finished the game.
