* CompleteMonster: The monstrous Crawler of the third game is seen [[MindRape mindraping the hero's ally Walter]] when it first appears before attempting to do the same to the hero. It then forces Walter to relive traumatic memories and reveals it is responsible for an utter massacre in Aurora. When the Crawler attacks Albion, it can murder over six million people if the city isn't fortified enough and [[DemonicPossession possesses Walter as a host]]. The Crawler, while an EldritchAbomination, operates entirely by human morality and has an all too understandable personality

* GameBreaker: Vortex + Fireball/Shock. Even the Wheel of Misfortune challenge becomes an absolute joke, as most enemies can't even touch you and die instantly upon being bashed into nearby obstacles [[GrievousHarmWithABody or each other]], allowing you to jack up the multiplier incredibly quickly and keep it going almost indefinitely. Especially hilarious if you max out the score [[InstantExpert on your first try]], as after the final round, Reaver [[GoodBadBugs will still occasionally]] make a condescending comment about the max score only being able to be reached once [[TakeThatAudience someone with no life comes along]][[note]] ([[DontExplainTheJoke Implying that you'd have to try over and over and ]] ''[[RuleOfThree over]]'' [[DontExplainTheJoke to get the best possible score]][[/note]].

** One of the game's main conflicts is deciding whether or not to be a WellIntentionedExtremist. Either be TheGoodKing, and let the apocalypse occur, or be an EvilOverlord who's kingdom survives. [[TakeYourTime Take a ton of time]] to become a filthy rich real estate tycoon, and, as it is with the rest of the series at this point, you obtain more cash than you could ever spend. Thus, cancelling the apocalypse even if you don't make the eviler choices.

* PortingDisaster: The PC port is tied to Games for Windows, even if you bought it from Steam, not that it's available for download anymore.

* PortingDisaster: The PC port is tied to Games for Windows, Windows Live, even if you bought it from Steam, not that it's available for download anymore. This means the [=DLC=] is broken and the saves from before the delisting are more likely corrupted.

* ToughActToFollow: The game still got favorable reviews, but a common complaint is how downgraded it felt compared to ''VideoGame/FableII'''s game mechanic.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Once the Hero becomes king/queen, there is very little interaction or character development (either for themselves or the supporting characters). Sparing [[spoiler: Logan]] changes the dialogue very little, with no unique scenes despite him being a [[spoiler: deposed and despised king working with the new monarch]]. Page takes no action against you except complain and refuse to help, if you turn into a tyrant. Walter shows little sign of [[spoiler: corruption or PTSD]] as the Crawler's arrival draws nearer. Reaver has little input outside of suggesting evil/pragmatic choices in judgement scenes, despite being a Hero and having connections to Shadow/Logan/Sparrow. Nothing much happens with Sabine or Kalin regardless of your rulings on their people. Outside of one sidequest, Elliot/Elise have no role in the story and no other 'main' characters are marriable.

* FridgeBrilliance: Logan's monologue about how Albion is his to mold and shape sounds evil at first, [[spoiler: till you realize that his threats are actually facts based on when the Crawler arrives and slaughters all of Albion.]]
** More specifically, that Albion is his and the people will do what he says or they will die. [[spoiler: He's more right than you could possibly think, and NOT in the figurative sense either. It's just that he's not going to be the one to kill them.]]
** Reaver, who's considered a KarmaHoudini, falls under this once one [[VideoGame/FableII remembers/learns]] that [[spoiler:he's also a Hero, and Heroes ''don't'' have to be good, as many players can attest to (and players can be just as bad, if not ''worse'', than Reaver if they choose to be). Heck, he even has the dark circles around his eyes that the Hero can gain by being evil enough.]]

** NotQuiteDead - A black soot chicken scurries out of the kitchen at the beginning of the play-through. If you have the patience to follow her long enough, she leads you to a silver key chest in the garden.
