* AccidentalInnuendo: When Alex pulls out the Magic Map: "Alexander feels a strange pulling sensation."
** "By all that's beautious, fair and sightly, four morons do I sleep with nightly!"
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The AwardBaitSong "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69M2iiI__XQ Girl in the Tower]]", composed by Mark Seibert and performed by Bob Berghold and Debbie Seibert. How kick-ass is that?
* EarWorm: Most of the soundtrack.
* EpilepticTrees: The Black Cloak Society is mentioned precisely once in the game, in an easily missed optional letter in the harder route through the game. Nothing much is ever explained about the BCS, yet fan theories run wild about it.
* EvenBetterSequel: This game was received with rave reviews, is generally regarded as the highest point in franchise, and perhaps the only one that can be enjoyed at face value today.
* FridgeHorror: The secret passageway Alexander uses in the castle exits in Alhazred's wardrobe... and is only a few twists and turns from a peephole that looks into Cassima's bedroom, and she doesn't seem to be aware that it's there. Sure, Alex uses it to have a brief, touching moment with her while she's imprisoned, but what was ''Abdul'' looking at?
** It's unclear that Alhazred himself knows that the passages exist. The ghost who reveals their existence to Alexander says that no one knows of them anymore, and if Alhazred did know of them, he would likely have had that hole in his wall which shows his room from those passages filled in.
** There was also the implication that Alhazred was going to kill Cassima ''after'' the wedding night. Think about what ''that'' implies.
* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: The whole scene with Bump-on-a-Log and Stick-in-the-Mud.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkP5OtN0aCw xylophone scene]], [[TheDeadCanDance complete with the skeletons' dance moves and three skeletons dance-kicking too]]!
** Almost any scene with Shamir Shamazel, the ShapeShifting Genie, is hilarious, especially whenever he talks in high-pitched voices, goes into some funny disguises, or gets [[ICantBelieveItsNotHeroin drunk on mints]].
* HilariousInHindsight: To any [[TheNineties 90s]] kid who has played ''King's Quest VI'': Go on, tell us you saw [[spoiler:Alhazred's staged marriage with Cassima!Shamir]] and didn't get reminded of gay marriage.
* MemeticMutation: [[AccidentalInnuendo "Alexander feels a strange pulling sensation."]]
** MMAAGGICC SMAAAAAAAAAAAAPP!!
* NightmareFuel: Where to begin...almost being burned to death as a HumanSacrifice, the Minotaur with his ghastly altar, the catacombs and their {{Death Trap}}s. The FauxDeath (if you don't know it's fake), and the entire Land of the Dead. Play this and ''VideoGame/KingsQuestIVThePerilsOfRosella'' with the lights ''on.''
* PolishedPort: In 1993, a PC CD-ROM adaptation of the game was released for both the MS-DOS and Windows 3.1x versions, and besides the voice-acting and mouth movements in character portraits that had been absent in the floppy diskette version on MS-DOS (which also kept the low-resolution graphics), the Windows version had high-resolution graphics that doubled the resolution graphics of MS-DOS. And not only did the Windows version enhance character portraits with mouth movements, it also featured their blinking eyes, eyebrow movements and [[MoodSwinger mood changes]].
* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: The CD-ROM version was one of the first to feature Hollywood voice acting, a practice that is now routine.
* TearJerker: The ''incredibly'' detailed description of [[spoiler:The Lord of the Dead seeing his life in the magic mirror.]] On the other hand, it can just as easily come across as {{Narm}}.
