** The Battle Mage in ''Sacred'' is commonly seen as a rather overpowered character, as not only he has [[KungFuWizard ridiculously good hand-to-hand skills]] for a RedMage, but his powers are arguably the most destructive and versatile among all the characters. The expansion [[{{Nerf}} toned down]] the Battle Mage by making him weaker against physical attacks, which was seen as an improvement... but it also introduced another overpowered character, the Dwarf.

* ThatOneBoss: The Ghost of Christmas Future. It has a devastating damage output, is surrounded by EliteMooks and has the ability to summon ''more'' of them, it barely takes any damage at all from non-fire based attacks, and it has an obscene health regeneration. Oh, and it automatically scales to your level. Have fun!

Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: NPC Maegalcarwen can be found in Zhurag-Nar about to be sacrificied when playing as the Dark Elf and can be saved if the player is fast enough, but there is no dialogue available with her. Most fans who followed the storyline of the two elves would have expected a explicit resolution, perhaps a promise to meet again after the game's final battle or, if the player failed at saving her, a dying confession of love or something akin. But nothing of it happens at all, and is left to the fans's imagination.

** There's actually an ingame sidequest where you help [[LawyerFriendlyCameo Bling Guardian themselves]] prepare for their tour's last concert. Their last performance is an actually ingame cutscene of them performing the gam'es {{Leitmotif}}, and it is ''glorious''.

** As a canonical part of the saga, ''Sacred 2'' is a pretty divisive product, as the way it abandons the established setting and presents a very different Ancaria makes itself look more like an AlternateContinuity than a a realistically connected prequel.

** Let's just say female Sakkara Priests as a whole. Their cries of '''PRAY FOR FORGIVENESS!''', as well as death screams are going to drive you nuts after hearing them for a hundredth time.
