* DemonicSpiders: Many monsters or enemies that can deal wounds or are totally immune to them, including Crypt Lices, [[GiantEnemyCrab Giant Crabs]], Armored Skeletons, Ogres, Flame Spirits, Grolm Ghosts and Harpies.
** Stone Golems: they have tons of health, are immune to wounds, spells or knockback and can deal a lot of damage. The final level spams them like candy at you.
* DisappointingLastLevel: The scenario of the endgame in DraSa 1 has sadly a lot of bugs, consists only of Hack&Slay-gameplay and has AWinnerIsYou-ending. To cup it all, is also extremely difficult.
* GameBreaker: Magical weapons that have a chance of inflicting wounds or knocking down the enemy by themselves, plus certain techniques like Bleeding, Death Strike and Rage Strike, which inflict lots of damage and wounds.
* GoddamnBats: Giant amoebas (have many health points, takes a lot to die, regenerate health quickly and can stun your character), Wolfrats (attack en masse and can inflict poison and wounds), Goblins.
* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Italians Loves Drakensang]]: Both games are quite popular in Italy, considering that they were fully translated in italian with good voice acting to boot.
* {{Narm}}: Narrator in the intro: "Forged in the fiery DEPTHS! A blade of deadly STEEL! Our heroes to SERVE! And our foes to [[TheIncredibleHulk CRUSH!]]" Lethal overdose of LargeHam.
** One of Forgrimm's battle animation is supposed to be a fierce battle cry. The Italian dub turned it into a ridicolous-sounding yawn.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Ancoron: he's extremely angsty, arrogant and obnoxious (though he usually apologies later). On the alpha side, he's also obscenely powerful with his trusty spear, and already knows all the spear techniques by the time you hire him.
* TheScrappy: Prancelot. YMMV.
* ScrappyLevel: To get to [[ThatOneBoss Mother Ratinsky]] you have to fight through FIVE LEVELS full of [[GoddamnBats those GODDAMN RATS]].
** Is actually a joke level, but that isn't made clear, and isn't done successfully.
** Forget that crap. The Temple of Efferd in the sequel is quite a pain in the ass. Full of really powerful (and nasty) Giant Crabs, has a really hard puzzle in the middle and ThatOneBoss at the bottom.
* StopHavingFunGuys: There were several [[http://www.gamestar.de/specials/spiele/1954932/drakensang_am_fluss_der_zeit.html complaints]] by tabletop players that the developers didn't incorporate the rules one-on-one, but instead modified them so that they could work better for a video game. The devs told them that a game should be there to have fun playing it and pointed them to this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhmUj9QJ9RM video]].
* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: The sequel has full voice-over, uses quick travel points, less but more fleshed out companions and offers more alternate approaches to quests.
* ThatOneBoss: Mother Ratzinsky. [[spoiler: also the Crab-Beast and the whole boss fight vs Jasmine and Coldstone]] in TRoT.
** Kastan Gamblack is no joke either, especially for his flunkies. Ditto for [[spoiler: Yandric, King Arombolosh, the Grolm King and the Final Boss.]]
** Plenty of bosses are rather difficult, but Mother Ratzinsky is outright unbeatable at the time you in theory could fight her.
* ThatOneLevel: Some area are quite difficult, including Traldar's castle (which is besieged by orcs and ogres), the stinky cavern where the Linnorm resides and Mount Drakensang.
