* MoralEventHorizon: There's a chance it will be crossed in the story's narrative. You have several opportunities to cross it yourself. Some past incarnations ([[spoiler:especially the Practical Incarnation, and [[NoodleIncident apparently]] your first incarnation]]) crossed it already.

*** Unless you [[spoiler: pull Morte back out afterwards.]] It's still pretty twisted, but not a Moral Event Horizon--especially since you suffer for it.

* EpilepticTrees: The plot itself can give birth to umpteen, but in-game dialogue mentions an all-time great: that the Lady Of Pain, mysterious and godlike ruler of Sigil, who can banish lawbreakers to endless, eternal mazes (or just kill them by casting a shadow made of thousands of magical blades) for crimes like murder, treason or daring to worship her, is actually six giant squirrels wearing a cloak, a ring of levitation and an illusion spell.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Came on the heels of ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' and IcewindDale, decidedly more straightforward and teen-friendly games. In a broader sense, too, it's an example of this as a positive trait, and a sign that video games can be a valid artform.

* ScrappyMechanic: A few come to mind, but among the most annoying ones would be the fact that the battle music tends to linger for a few moments after you already defeated all the enemies.



* ThatOneLevel: [[TheMaze The Rubikon Dungeon Construct.]] While completely avoidable, essentially a BonusDungeon, if you want to find Nordom or kill the [[BonusBoss Evil Wizard]], you have to set it to 'Hard' difficulty and go through it... and it is basically 62 instances of the same room copied over and over and ''over'', with one to three pain-in-the-ass constructs which are completely identical from room to room. After the cuteness factor wears off, you can be forgiven for just going on a mad dash through the thing without stopping to fight.

*GameBreaker: Dak'kon is a skilled fighter, but his mage part isn't impressive by itself. However, with enough intelligence and spell boosting equipment and tattoos, he's a force to be reckoned with.

* EnjoyTheStorySkipTheGame: It's noted for its excellent story, characters, and loads of freedom and roleplaying options, but combat is not the game's strong point. However, you can solve most problems with dialogue options rather than fighting (the entire game has a total of three unskippable boss fights, and while most areas do have regular enemies who will attack you no matter what, they can be avoided if the player so wishes).
