* BrokenBase: There's a split right down the middle of the video game's fanbase over who exactly is supposed to represent the sin of pride. Some argue that it is [[Spoiler: the Wizard, who boasts constantly over his final battle with the Third Overlord]] and was responsible for corrupting the others (it is generally agreed that pride is the cause of the other six deadly sins). On the other hand, many believe that pride is represented by the Third Overlord himself; considering the [[spoiler: Wizard was killed in a GrandTheftMe by the Second Overlord and not actually "corrupted"]] whereas the Third Overlord was [[spoiler: the Eighth Hero, whose name is never even given, since he actually was corrupted thanks to a case of amnesia, into believing that he was an "Overlord". Even the title is prideful.]] He is also capable, true to the philosophy of pride, of committing each sin on his own (holding food vs. giving it back: Gluttony, Choosing shallow but sexy Velvet over caring Rose: Lust, Not forgiving those who betrayed you out of fear: Wrath. etc.

** Flame thrower dwarves. Getting past even ''one'' is beyond difficult, and fighting ''more'' than one is a LuckBasedMission.

** Flame thrower dwarves. Getting past even ''one'' is beyond difficult, and fighting ''more'' than one is a LuckBasedMission. Averted with the use of red minions, who are completely immune to fire while the flame thrower dwarf himself is not. Also averted with a solo overlord, who can literally run circles around him without worry.

* FridgeBrilliance: When looking at both characters, it becomes clear why the Overlord of I is an AntiVillain while his son in II is always evil no matter what. The first overlord [[spoiler:was a Hero who was brought back from the dead and made evil by the minions. Something must be left over that drives him to good, even if it's filtered through PragmaticVillainy]]. The Overlad, contrariwise, was raised by Gnarl for the better of 13 years. Plenty of time to know "proper" evil compared to dear old dad.

* {{Fanon}}: A surprisingly large amount of fanfictions seem to agree that the Eighth Hero was either a Knight or [[MagicKnight Magus]], and named Gallant.

* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper: Repeating yourself doesn't make you any clearer, Gnarl.



* UglyCute: The Minions. Rose and Velvet even give them the charming nicknames of "Cherubs" and "Pixies" respectively. Visually fearsome to the point of hideousness. But they make the most adorable sounds that two metal objects scraping together can evoke. To hammer the point, the minions are a cross between E.T. and the cuter moments of Sméagol. They can look downright adorable, for example with the sequence in the tutorial of the second game where the minions disguises themselves as children, then they begin to sing...

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The music in this series is quite epic and would not seem out of place in a more serious fantasy game.
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8VNIk2aA9w Title theme for the second game]]. It should give you a small taste for the great soundtrack of the game you are about to play.

* SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound:
** A lot of players get at least a little happy every time one of their minions says "For Da Overlord!", "For Da Master!", or just plain "For you!".
** The "Recall Minions" sound is pretty satisfying too.
