''Warriors of Might And Magic'' is a spin off of the much more famous ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic'' saga, and is an ActionGame.

The player controls Alleron, a fomer Captain of the Guards who's accused of necromancy, forced to wear a living mask of shame and thrown in the Pit of the Accused. From here, he'll have to work his way through an army of monsters, warriors and demons in order to clear his name, find out the truth about his origins and stop the resurrection of a dark demon called [[EldritchAbomination Daglathor]].

Received a sequel the following year, titled ''Shifters''.


----
!!''Warriors of Might and Magic'' contains examples of:

* ALoadOfBull: The Minotaurs and Minotaur Warriors enemies in the Citadel of Magic halfway through the game. Oddly, the Minotaur's element is [[MakingASplash water.]]
* AnAxeToGrind: Many weapons, expecially the Meteoric Axe (Air damage), and the Axe of Vim (Light Damage).
* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: The Pit of the Accused, the first level, is one: The main passages are big enough for a Dragon and filled with expanded side passages leading everywhere, and that's without getting into the even more complex dungeon below, leading to a waterfall straigth into an orcish mine, currently under work.
* ArcVillain: The second game is full of these. [[TheUndead Sekotep]], [[EldritchAbomination Gorgantha]] and the [[TheUsurper Djinn Usurper]].
* BadWithTheBone: Your very first weapon is the bone of some poor devil who was eaten by the monsters of the Pit.
* BeastMan: A few of the enemies encountered are this.
* BerserkButton: Alleron doesn't like to be called a necromancer. He's still a sorcerer and warrior, but not a necromancer.
* BigBad: Daglathor. [[OrcusOnHisThrone Not that his threat is]] ''[[OrcusOnHisThrone that]]'' [[OrcusOnHisThrone imposing.]]
** He is succeeded by [[spoiler:Daria]] in ''Shifters''.
* BigBadWannabe: Daria. [[spoiler: In the first game, at least.]]
* BigFancySword: Including "Grendel" and "[[AnIcePerson Wild Winter]]".
* BladeOnAStick: Several, including [[DoubleWeapon Chien's Halbeard]] and [[InfinityPlusOneSword Angel Arm.]] Alleron tend to swing them a lot.
* BlatantLies: [[AllThereInTheManual The manual]] mentions that Necromancers, despite the implications of their title, rarely rise the dead, and their ill reputation is usually the result of the rumors born from ignorant and fearful commoners. In game the only Necromancer, Daria, does nothing but summoning living dead to kill Alleron, who's only accused of being a Necromancer himself, making the previously mentioned comment sound useless and silly.
* BossInMookClothing: The Hellions are extremely powerful and have a lot of health. Thankfully, they're quite slow.
* CameraScrew: Usually the camera is known for killing more gamers than the monsters themselves.
* CleverCrows: Carlin.
* ClingyMacGuffin: The Mask of Accused. You're stuck with it for most of the first game. Alleron still wears it in ''Shifters'', but is apparently able to remove it at will.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: When an enemy is selected, you'll see a coloured ring, based on the element (Red for Fire, Green for Earth, Dark Blue for Water, Light Blue for Air, Black for Darkness and White for Light).
* CoolSword: Several of various elements.
* {{Cyclops}}: Daglathor has a single red eye, resembling overall a bulking cyclop Deep One.
* DarkIsEvil: Played straight: Alleron can't cast Darkness spells, dark-aligned equipment will come with some serious maluses and almost all the demons are of this element. [[spoiler: Averted by the FinalBoss, who is not Dark Elemental at all.]]
* DamageSpongeBoss: Many high level enemies and also Talin Thraxxus and Daglathor.
** The final boss of ''Shifters'', [[spoiler:Daria]], thanks to being able to retreat to an unreachable spot and rapidly heal back to full health.
* DeadpanSnarker: Saylo, the abbot who decides to help Alleron on his quest, and Carlin's master.
* DenOfIniquity: The Temple of Depraved, the eighth level.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: The Grand Inquisitor, in ''Shifters''.
* DoubleWeapon: Including the exotic looking Chien's Halbeard and the Double Morning Star ([[ICallItVera a.k.a. "The Clapper"]]).
* TheDragon: Daria to Daglathor in the first game. The Grand Inquisitor to [[spoiler:Daria]] in the second.
* EldritchAbomination: Daglathor the Kreegan Lord is described in such a way.
* ElementalPowers: [[PlayingWithFire Fire]], [[MakingASplash Wa]][[AnIcePerson ter]], [[DishingOutDirt Earth]], [[SoulPower A]][[ShockAndAwe ir]], [[HolyHandGrenade Light]] and [[DarkIsEvil Darkness]]. The last one however has no spells and can only be used via cursed swords.
* ElementalRockPaperScissors: The bulk of magic attacks of course, consist in this cycle: Fire burns Earth, Earth blocks Air, Air best Water and Water beats fire. Light and Darkness are effective against each other. furthermore, Darkness is effective against Earth and Water, while Light is effective against Air and Fire. Weapons and Rings will affect your elemental attack, while armor, shields and amulets will rise the elemental defense. This is however averted for your defense: in order to be more protected from an element, you have to carry armor and shields of the same element as your current enemy.
* EvilIsDeathlyCold: Daglathor is described as the master of a glacial domain, and his innermost cell is seemingly made of ice or blue crystals resembling ice. [[spoiler: His first two forms are elementally aligned with Water and Air, respectively.]]
* ExcusePlot: Seriously, it's very hard to figure out what the actual plot is or why you're venturing in certain dungeons.
* FaceHeelTurn: Daria, so soon that it's barely a spoiler.
* GlassCannon: Enemy casters will be much more dangerous than normal enemies, but thankfully less healthy.
* {{Golem}}: The third level is full of Stone and Wood Golems (earth element) and [[OurGargoylesRock Gargoyles]] (air element).
* GoodIsNotNice: Einar the Ancient decided to indulge into his lust and have his way with several mortal women, and each union was blessed with a demigod child, which pushed the events of the game in motion. For a great hero and slayer of Kreegans, he's surely a douchebag.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Is soon discovered that Alleron and Daria have the blood of a God in their veins, and in order to ascend to Godhood, only one must survive. [[JerkAssGod Yeah...]]
* HornyDevils: Succubi appear ingame, but they mostly attack by kicking and tossing fireballs.
* LanternJawOfJustice: Alleron.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Apparently, Balthus the undead jailer you meet in the Pit of the Accused was the guy in the purple armor in the opening movie, killing people for fun.
* LifeDrain: While Blue Gazers will absorb your mana, Green ones will deplete your life force. Luckily they're only met in two levels.
* LizardFolk: Troglodytes met on the way to the City of Magic. They're at war with Elves.
* MagicKnight: Alleron himself.
* MalevolentMaskedMan: The Great Inquisitor.
* MaskPower: Subverted with the Mask of the Accursed; it's actually more like a mark of shame, though Alleron claims it lets him "see the darkness in men's hearts".
* TheMaze: There's an incredibly frustrating one in the City Of Magic, and, of course, is filled with Minotaurs. Also the last part of the Temple of Daglathor.
* MultiMeleeMaster: Alleron is quite adept with swords, maces, axes and even greatswords and polearms. At the end of the second level you can even find a Crossbow that allows you to shoot elemental darts.
* NamedWeapons: Many of your weapons. Perhaps parodied with "[[SimpleStaff Geremia's Scepter]]".
--> Geremia's Scepter. And now is Mine.
* TheNecromancer: Daria seems to be capable of summoning large numbers of undead.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In the background, Vim was condamned to an horrible fate after he came to rescue his bride to be, unaware that it was a ruse organized by her father in order to strike at Daglathor's cult.
* NightOfTheLivingMooks: The seventh mission, where Daria unleash a small horde of ghouls and ghosts on the abbey.
* NintendoHard: Some levels of the game are really frustrating.
* NoSell: Alleron and Daria can't directly harm each other, being half-siblings and children of a God.
* NonElemental: There's exactly one enemy in the whole game who doesn't have an elemental alignment, and that is: [[spoiler: Daglathor's last form.]]
* NonHumanSidekick: Carlin the crow. Also a friendly "coyote" in the Maze level of the City of Magic.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: Averted, when you defeat the first form of Daglathor he simply turns in another copy of himself with a different element (namely first Water, then Fire then None).]]
* OurElvesAreBetter: Averted, the only elves seen ingame are a bunch of aggressive bastards.
* OurGoblinsAreDifferent: They're blue, and their element is water. You also need a petrified goblin in order to solve a puzzle. They can also steal your equipment.
* OurOgresAreHungrier: Big, light blue brutes with either clubs or lightining-shooting staves, they tend to be surprisingly nimble despite their pot bellies.
* OurOrcsAreDifferent: Usually met as foes, some of them are good guys who will help Alleron on his quest more than once. In the second stage you even have to help the old Orc chief against his political rival.
* PortalCut: In ''Shifters'', a lore book in the Kreegan Temple states that a [[{{Kaiju}} Kreegan broodmother]] accidentally unleashed by the priests was slain when the portal she was using was suddenly shut off. Her gigantic severed head, still blocking the portal gate, is the backdrop for the fight against Gorgantha.
* {{Pun}}: Commonly used in the description of your weapons.
* PuzzleBoss: The Djinn Usurper in ''Shifters'', though it's not much of one: When Alleron points out that all he needs to do to destroy the Djinn is smash the container holding its soul, the boss responds by filling the room with dozens of duplicate jars.
* RealTimeWeaponChange: By pausing, you can change your entire inventory with ease, even armor and shield. Though if you change your weapon you'll be slightly delayed as Alleron draws the new weapon from {{Hammerspace}}.
* RedHerring: The Great Inquisitor, [[spoiler: in both games]].
* ReformulatedGame: As with most of 3DO's late releases, the [=PS1=], [=PS2=] and GBC versions are all completely different games.
* ReligionOfEvil: The Cult of Daglathor, who's said to enjoy depravity and deboucheries from his followers.
* SealedEvilInACan: Daglathor. Since Einar was unable to kill him, he decided to imprison him in the bowels of a volcano. Daria is trying to release him. [[spoiler: In the last level you have to recover the Terrenus Spell scroll from his lair (and battling Daglathor in the process) and seal him for good.]]
* SiblingYinYang: [[spoiler: Alleron and Daria, big time, including opposite hair colors and personalities.]]
* SinisterScimitar: Averted with the Sword of Saurana and the Sword of Brannock, which are Water enchanted, but played straight by the Sword of Shadows, a Dark-elemental scimitar seemingly made of bones.
* {{Stripperific}}: Daria is, to tell it bluntly, dressed as a slut. Given the nature of the cult she serves though it's kinda appropriate, as seen with the female cultists.
* TeleportSpam: [[spoiler: Daglathor's second form just loves to suddenly teleport right behind you to attack, making this form much more dangerous than the first.]]
* TricksterMentor: The Chief Abbot Saylo who helps Alleron on his quest and offers to remove is mask.
* TheEndOrIsIt: The game ends with Daglator's temple exploding and Alleron emerging safe and sound from the ruins, but as he leaves, [[spoiler:Daria stands up from the crater, still alive and kicking.]]
* TopHeavyGuy: Alleron.
* VideogameCrueltyPotential: At one point, you can burn a prisoner (or a ghost?) alive in a furnace. However if you do so, [[OneHitKill his wraith will appear and kill you where you stand.]]
* TheUndead: Many enemies. The second game features the [[{{Mummy}} Deadspawn]].
* TheUnfought: [[spoiler: Daria, since you cannot harm her directly, but she's already incapacitated for you when the cultists try to sacrifice her to Daglathor. You get to fight her directly in the sequel.]]
* UngratefulBastard: The King of the Elves. After you recover his sword from the King of the Troglodites he repays you with steel.
* UselessUsefulSpell: Averted by the Charm spell: It always works, even on strong foes, and is quite useful. The honor goes to Torch, whose only purpouse is to make dark areas (rare to come by) brighter.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Alleron's main power in the second game.
* WakeUpCallBoss: Balthus the Jailer. If you haven't found a fire spell tome or a light spell tome you're screwed.
* WhatTheHellHero: When Alleron meet an imprisoned and powerless Daria in the Temple of Daglathor, he steals her key and leave her to die without a second though. Sure, she tried to kill him several times, but...
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Apok, the orc you just rescued from the Zombies and gives you his ring in The First level and later Shows up again in the Orc Mines, but then now he's nowhere now in Later levels, what really happened to him?
* WingsDoNothing: Though Succubi fly, it is still possible to have them fall to their deaths in bottomless pits just by pushing them back.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Daria is eventually tied to a... weird structure. With No reason given.
