* PortingDisaster: In the SNES port, the plot was mostly the same, but wound up being butchered as a result of Nintendo's NeverSayDie policies at the time. The double homicide that starts the plot of the game is replaced with a double ''kidnapping''...that never gets solved! The entire combat system and party system that defined the original game is dispensed with altogether in favor of a Zelda-style action RPG format in which the Avatar wanders around alone whacking snakes and bats with his sword.

And, of course, the amazing sandbox elements are largely removed because the game isn't being fueled by a 486-or-better plugged into a good four-megabytes-plus of RAM. (The SNES was powerful for its time, sure, but not ''that'' powerful.)

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeHorror: On the garbage-strewn shore of Lock Lake there's a number of animal corpses that can be looted. Most are empty, but one dead fox contains a dead ''mouse'', which in turn contains a Ring of Regeneration. It's a welcome little bit of hidden treasure when you find it. Until you wonder about how the fox died and realize that having a constantly regenerating mouse in your stomach would probably be a rather painful way to go...

Added DiffLines:

* AntiClimaxBoss: The members of the Fellowship at the end of the game. They essentially low AI controlled character classes and are a LOT weaker than many of the enemies you have already killed to get to them.

* ScrappyMechanic: Having to manually feed your characters.

* ScrappyMechanic: Having to manually feed your characters. The fact that they can't feed themselves is made fun of in various fanfics, with the Avatar giving his companions nappies and spooning food in their mouths.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: [[{{VideoGame/WingCommander}} The Kilrathi spaceship.]]
* GoodBadBugs: In the northwest forest of Britannia, there's a house full of goodies whose door can only be opened by a lever on the inside. Normally, you need to go through a dungeon and find the teleporter that will warp you into to the house. However, if you position yourself by the window so that you can see the lever, you can just use Telekinesis to open the door (in Exult, you can simply change the screen resolution if you can't see it right away).
