* HypeBacklash: Over the years the game rose to the status of the ultimate western [=RPG=] ever made, if not one of the best games of its time. And no-one is denying its greatness, but it also leads to numerous new players ending up being disappointed at the game, as it didn't quite live to their (too high) expectations.

* AudienceColoringAdaptation: Dak'kon, an optional party member in a licensed title, is, to this day, the most famous and iconic githzerai in the franchise of ''Dungeons & Dragons''. Naturally, this means that from 3rd edition onward his entire race, once characterized by being chaotic and capricious, has become much more like him, event though, originally, his lawful characterization was one of the factors that had made him an alienated pariah among his own kind.

* CultClassic: Essentially doomed to this, given its very unorthodox design and focus on text.

** [[spoiler: The Greater Shadows in Fortress of Regret]] are also vulnerable to Cloudkill, despite being undead and therefore shouldn't be affected by it. If you're careful enough, you can lure big packs and kill them all, and maybe even level up there and then meaning your spells are replenished and keep on 'til you're depleted of Cloudkill, or the shadows exterminated.

* 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.
