* AccidentalInnuendo: The description for a ring mentions [[ErrolFlynn E. Flynn]], and how he "really gets around!"
* CanonSue: For some, Warlic is really beginning to push the envelope [[spoiler: with the whole "coming back from the dead" and almost painfully obvious thing about being Wargoth's son]]. But hey, an [[AuthorsSavingThrow Author's Saving Plot Twist]] could be in the works.
* CrazyAwesome: Cysero.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Most of the music is ''amazing''.
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Chickencows were originally created as an April Fools' joke. However, everyone loved them so much that the staff introduced a rare item that let you use Chickencowlord armor when the event was over. Now they have a god, and through him a lengthy quest chain parodying [[ClassicalMythology the labors of Heracles]].
** Fae first showed up in beta and had fans before she made her first "official" appearance in the Nature Orb saga. WordOfGod said she would be the trainer for a druid class.
* GeniusBonus:
** Project [=C8H10N4O2=] involves coffee-related items, since [=C8H10N4O2=] is the molecular formula for caffeine.
** Tomix the Soulweaver's facial hair is called a [[IncrediblyLamePun "soul patch"]].
** Balloon Chickencow Pet's text tells us that you want to call it Herbert. President UsefulNotes/HerbertHoover was the one who promised "a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage." This doubles as a reference to ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'', as there was a [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti yeti]] who captured BugsBunny and called him Herbert (and wanted to hug and squeeze him).
** In the quest "Eclipse" [[spoiler:the Mysterious Stranger Dragon eats the sun. Many ancient cultures believed that a solar eclipse was caused by a dragon eating the sun]].
* GodModeSue / VillainSue: Sepulchure.
* GoddamnedBats: Minx Fairies can fully heal themselves at the cost of 1 mana. Considering that they scale with your level, you'll eventually be fighting ones with over 200 mana. You are going to be very frustrated very quickly if you don't have a way to stun them, drain their magic, or if those abilities are on cooldown. Additionally, they are strong to light, which is the exact opposite of almost every enemy in the game, and makes one of the two most powerful weapons useless.
* GoodBadBugs: There's a slight glitch in the Earth Orb saga where you [[spoiler: play as En (minus Tropy)]]. This can help you fight enemies, but if you save it as your default armour, kiss your account goodbye.
* GutPunch: The Chapter One finale provides a nice few of these, such as [[spoiler: being absolutely annihilated by Sepulchure, the guardian tower being destroyed, several characters being KilledOffForReal, and another 16 million waves of undead get thrown at you]]...''all in one quest''.
* HilariousInHindsight: One of the most knowledgeable (and mysterious) characters in the game is Celestia, who is one of the most [[IncorruptiblePurePureness unequivocally good]] characters in the setting, [[TrademarkFavoriteFood enjoys tea]], [[TheMentor has a purple-haired understudy]], and is associated with the colors [[GoldAndWhiteAreDivine white and gold.]] [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic That seems strangely familiar...]]
** [[spoiler: May also double as HarsherInHindsight, considering [[KilledOffForReal what happens]] to Priestess Celestia in the game and [[DisneyDeath what]] ''[[DisneyDeath almost]]'' [[DisneyDeath happens ]]to Princess Celestia in Twilight's flashback in the Season 4 opening two-parter.]]
* HoYay: Valencia seems to have a crush on The Hero no matter what The Hero's gender is.
* ItWasHisSled: For those familiar with ''VideoGame/{{AdventureQuest}}'', it was blindingly obvious that Konnan would eventually become Drakonnan.
* JerkassWoobie: [[spoiler:The Necromantress a.k.a. Lady Vayle]].
* MagnificentBastard: Sepulchure [[spoiler:and the Mysterious Stranger]].
* MoralEventHorizon: Drakonnan crosses this when he [[spoiler:[[ItWasHisSled kills Demento]]]].
** Sepulchure lost a lot of sympathy when he a) [[spoiler:crashed his fortress into the Falconreach Guardian Tower, causing massive destruction]] and b) [[spoiler:..."arranged" Lady Celestia's death]].
* NauseaFuel: One of Bargok's attacks is ''throwing up on you''.
* NightmareFuel:
** The Chaos Weavers are damn creepy.
** The Water Orb quest chain may be LovecraftLite, but it's a ''pretty'' accurate homage to the original, with SanitySlippage, MindRape and BodyHorror galore (TheHero that is).
** [[spoiler: That cutscene between Drakonnan and Sepulchure, where Seppy is telling him that he's going to pick him apart, piece by piece. Cue Sepulchure transforming into some unseen, huge monster, and a large NOOO! appear on the screen in bright red. The same fate happened to Sabrina]].
* StopHelpingMe: Princess Victoria, when The Hero keeps hinting towards [[spoiler:her double life as Robina]]. The Hero does not hesitate to [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] this.
* UglyCute: The army of baby dracoliches that Zorbak assembles to conquer the world. [[spoiler:The would-be invasion is thwarted when the people of Amityvale adopt the babies as pets]].
* TheUntwist: [[spoiler:Konnan becomes Drakonnan. Vayle is the Necromantress]]. The latter is lampshaded by the hero, who says s/he "kinda saw that one coming."
* TroubledButCute: Lady Vayle and [[spoiler:Dra]]Konnan.
* ViewersAreGeniuses: Try explaining the current AE game timeline (over five thousand years) to everyone will ensure "Time is a Timey-Wimey Wibbly Wobbly ball of stuff" (to be clear ''VideoGame/{{MechQuest}}''-Reset-''VideoGame/{{DragonFable}}''-Time split-''VideoGame/{{AdventureQuest}}''-''VideoGame/{{AdventureQuest Worlds}}''). To be more specific, it's not a linear time line -- [[http://img59.imageshack.us/img59/5352/loretimeline.png it's a very complex timeline]]. By the way, this is {{Word of God}} and therefore, {{canon}}.
* VillainSue: Sepulchure seems to be an interesting case. His many [[MagnificentBastard magnificently bastardly]] plans as well as being overpowered to the point of being nearly impossible to defeat, as well as being able to predict players' equipment change, is sure to place him in this spot. And, while TheHero was prophetized to fulfill his/her destiny to defeat him, he/she was unfortunately unable to even leave a scratch on him at ANY TURN. [[spoiler:If it weren't for Drakath becoming TheStarscream to him and later providing a body for the Mysterious Stranger to take over after which he then knocks out Seppy with a powerful atack, he would've used the orbs to become master of the world with nobody to stop him and therefore would've become a KarmaHoudini]].
* WhatAnIdiot: [[spoiler:Bragging about how you're more powerful than the freakin' Elemental Lords won't do you any favours, Nythera]].
* TheWoobie: Aquella.
