* {{Fanon}}: In the AGD remake, a hidden letter (search Manannan's desk four times) from [[spoiler: Lolotte]] to Manannan states that her "Sister" once had a crush on Manannan before he grew out his beard. Her sister is stated to me Malicia as they're both fairies. Not to mention [[spoiler: Both had a connection to Edgar, and Malicia may have even aided Lolotte in kidnapping him]] the letter also states that Hagatha is Manannan and Mordack's sister. While ALSO confirming [[spoiler: Lolotte]] and Hagatha as part of the Black Cloak Society. Though this game had ApprovalOfGod it's still nowhere near WordOfGod.

** Though bizarrely, despite being reviled by most of the fanbase, especially the hardcore fans, tribute fan games such as the ''King's Quest II'' remake, and "The Silver Lining" still state it as canon. * FridgeBrilliance: To explain the whole FantasyKitchenSink scenario. Think about it? Once the books in our world are finished, the characters have to go somewhere. Perhaps Daventry is a purgatory of sorts, for literature characters whose stories have ended, with no writer to continue them, they end up here? [[note]] I would not count if a new writer eventually takes over, as each character is bound to the writer who created him/her/it. While the "new writers" may have the same characters, that would in turn create a second incarnation who is similar. But not exactly the same, as different writers, no matter how accurate they try to be, can never truly duplicate the original writer [[/note]]

** In ''FreddyPharkasFrontierPharmacist'' at one point you can find a lost Cedric in the desert, later you find him being picked clean by buzzards.

* InternetBackdraft: It eventually came to light that the 2015 King's Quest game by the Odd Gentlemen was developed using money stolen from the ''[[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}]]'' Kickstarter after they abandoned the project. Homestuck fans were ''not'' happy.

* EvenBetterSequel / GrowingTheBeard: The series' gameplay, graphics, logic and overall quality tended to improve as the series progressed, with KQ VI generally being regarded as the highest point of the franchise. However, KQ VII had a [[ContestedSequel mixed reception]], though positive in general, and KQ VIII was a huge letdown that [[FranchiseKiller ruined the series]].

* WTHCastingAgency: Being one of the first computer games to feature voice acting, characters in the CD-ROM version of ''King's Quest V'' were voiced by only a handful of Sierra employees, with varying degrees of success. Sierra learned their lesson, and pioneered the concept of Hollywood actors voicing computer games, mentioned below.

*** even the official wiki passive-aggressively puts down Cedric. (Wikis have a rule of being unbiased) ----> The owl Cedric accompanies Graham through the entire game to provide commentary and advice. He has to be rescued from danger at several points, but the owl rarely says or does anything useful ** And if you play Ms. Astro Chicken long enough in ''Space Quest IV'', Cedric shows up. You can crash into him, survive, and get 50 bonus points. ** In FreddyPharkasFrontierPharmacist at one point you can see Cedric in the desert, later you find him dead.

* AngstWhatAngst: Alexander comes off as mostly well-adjusted and normal [[spoiler:despite his past of growing up as a mistreated slave]]. Fans (and some of the ExpandedUniverse material) have generally decided this is odd and tend to compensate by running in the opposite direction and making him TroubledButCute instead (particularly in ''VideoGame/TheSilverLining''). Of course, fandom being what it is, there's also [[http://akril15.deviantart.com/art/Alexander-has-had-enough-41739833 fans who then wrap around and protest the compensation]].
