[[AC:Main Characters]]
[[folder: The Hero]]

!!The Hero of ''[=DragonFable=]''
The player character, who is the greatest hero of Lore and a destined Dragon Lord.
* TheAce: S/he has vanquished every monster that has threatened Lore, and trained in almost every class available, all with their unique skill-sets.
* ActionGirl: If female.
* {{Adorkable}}: The Hero shows shades of this quite often especially in Book 1. As a SadClown s/he loves cracking silly jokes that might not be appropriate for the circumstances. Can also be present when s/he must play the OnlySaneMan and must frustratingly handle those around him/her.
* AmazingTechnicolourPopulation: Can have pretty much any skin color. [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair The same goes for hair]].
* AlternateSelf: The versions of the player character in ''[=ArtixEntertainment=]'''s other games serve as this, especially ''VideoGame/AdventureQuest'', ''VideoGame/MechQuest'', and ''VideoGame/AdventureQuestWorlds'', where crossovers indicate it's all the same character.
** WordOfGod is that the Hero is the [[http://forums2.battleon.com/f/tm.asp?m=22235285&mpage=1&key=&#22235506 exact same character]] as the player character in ''VideoGame/MechQuest'' and that the CosmicRetcon that occurred between ''VideoGame/MechQuest'' and ''VideoGame/DragonFable'' did not restart the timeline, but rather invented a new history for it.
* ApologeticAttacker: Apologizes to [[spoiler: Tomix, when the Hero is forced to fight him after he gets [[DemonicPossession possessed]] by Envy.]]
* BadassAdorable:
** When the Hero gets turned into a monkey during the Sho'Nuff Inn Saga.
** In the "Yulgar's First Date" quest, which involves time travel, there is a kid version of the Hero who continues fighting monsters using a stick.
* BadassBoast: Has quite a few of these, usually delivered to antagonists or villains.[[note]]
** In "The Black Dragon Box"
--> '''Drakath:''' Impossible! You got lucky this time <Class>!\\
'''The Hero:''' Luck had nothing to do with it, and the name is <Character>. Remember it!
** In Frostval 2008, during the quest [=NoX=]-mas, when the Hero confronts Noxus for changing everyone in Frostval to coal.
--> '''The Hero:''' You're not going to TOUCH my friends! I'm going to destroy your magic fireplace ... Then I'm going to MAKE you change everyone back to normal... and believe me... I can do it. I'm stopping you for Blizzy and Maya and Icemaster Yeti, but mostly this is for Chilly!
** During the Mogloween 2013 quest, "Forest Hunt", while conversing with Symone about Valtrith.
--> '''Symone:''' Do you really think these weak scouts are his true force? He's already built a castle in the Doomwood. He's building an army as we speak. Soon, he'll have enough minions to overrun anything in his path to power.\\
'''The Hero:''' I stand in the path.\\
'''Symone:''' And what's stopping him from knocking you over?\\
'''The Hero:''' If he does, I'll get back up.
** During, "Facing Z" after defeating Magus Z.
-->'''The Hero:''' That's right, Run away and lick your wounds. You tell the Rose we mean business. This is about more than just magic. This is about LIFE. And we will be victorious.
%%* BadDreams
* BadWithTheBone: If s/he has a Doom Weapon.
* BattleCry: The Warrior class has this as one of the attacks.
* BerserkButton: Starting from Book 3, the Hero cannot stand being frozen in ice, due to being encased in ice at the end of Book 2. When Aegis freezes the Hero in "Calamity" to try save his/her life, s/he loses his/her temper and continues repeating "No ice" at Aegis.
* BrokenAce: The Hero has become this by Book 3, where despite still appearing as the legendary hero on the surface, s/he is full of loathing on the inside for all the lives s/he failed to save and the impending darkness that cannot be faltered.
* BrokenPedestal: Maximilian says that he used to really look up to the Hero. But the Hero only ever thwarted villains and never actually bothered dealing with them for good, allowing them to come back every time and keep killing more and more innocent people.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Non-villainous example. The Hero has fought so many villains that he/she has an entry about it in his/her contract.
--> '''Maximilian:''' WE FOUGHT! WE TRADED BLOWS!
--> '''The Hero:''' Did you read my terms of employment?
--> '''Maximilian:''' ...Beg your pardon?
--> '''The Hero:''' I'm the Hero of Falconreach! Section 4C of Article 45 of the Hero code stipulates that I'm only obliged to remember villains who were at least semi-memorable in the storyline!
* CallingYourAttacks: In some of class skills available, the Hero shouts....
* CharacterClassSystem: The player may be choose to become a: [[FighterMageThief Warrior, Mage or Rogue]], {{Ninja}}, {{Pirate}}, [[ArcherArchetype Ranger]], [[DragonKnight DragonLord]]/[[DragonRider DragonRider]], [[ThePaladin Paladin]], {{Necromancer}}, [[BlackKnight DeathKnight]], [[TheDragonslayer Dragonslayer]], Techno[[{{Whatevermancy}} mancer]], [[SoulPower SoulWeaver]], [[MiniMecha Gnomish Personal Steamtank]], [[HunterOfMonsters Shadowhunter]], [[ArtifactOfDoom Doom]][[BlackKnight Knight]], and that's not the whole list.
* ChickMagnet: It actually applies to ''both'' genders, various [=NPCs=] have been shown to be attracted to the Hero irrespective of gender. They include but are not limited to: Valencia, Mazurek, and Jack Crescent (although the latter may have been lying).
* TheChosenOne: An ancient prophecy states that the Hero is to become a Dragonlord, and will raise a legendary dragon from one of two boxes that will either save the world or destroy it.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Quite a few instances where the Hero cannot resist doing acts of heroism, even against his/her better judgement.
** The Hero takes pity on Greedling and cannot help being kind to it. In the aftermath of Tomix Saga Book 1, the Hero can choose to adopt it as a pet.
** While disguised as Edd and infiltrating the Rose, the Hero unhesitantly helps Sam after he gets bullied by Vince.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Talks to him/herself and has a very immature {{troll}}ish personality
* CipherScything: Dragonfable and ''VideoGame/AdventureQuestWorlds'' are {{Alternate Universe}}s of Lore, but [=AdventureQuest=] World's past is essentially Dragonfable's Book 1. [=AdventureQuest=] Worlds actually has its own equivalent to the Dragonfable Hero. But the Hero's AlternateSelf has a ''much'' smaller role, and said AlternateSelf makes a brief cameo as a generic male Dragonlord, completely covered in armor.
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: When teaming up with some of the weirder characters, such as Artix, where the Hero is often forced to restrain them and slap some sense into them.
* CuddleBug: The Hero loves hugs, especially from cute things. When the Frost Moglins become all fluffy, the Hero wishes he could hug one of them, before [[PapaWolf Icemaster Yeti]] tells him/her to backoff. To be fair, [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower hugs are the purest, most powerful source of magic on Lore.]]
* {{Curse}}: In Book 3, The Baron was going to start inflicting him/her with a series of curses for each war s/he lost, which would have made his/her life permanently harder. Due to technical difficulties however, this bit of story and gameplay was ultimately cancelled.
* CurseCutShort: During the Ravenloss War while conversing with Vaal, the Hero gets called a flunky (which Vaal intends as a compliment), to which the Hero begins cursing Vaal under his/her breath before Tomix cuts in.
* CutenessProximity: The Hero is very susceptible to things that are cute, finding the Doomkitten, the baby dragon, Spots the Two-Headed puppy, Zorbak's baby dracoliches, and the Greedling to be adorable.
* DeadpanSnarker: Can be very sarcastic when put alongside the more weirder characters.
* {{Determinator}}: In the ''Donovan'' quest, best put in his/her own words about the ordeals s/he has to go through most often than not:
-->'''The Hero:''' I've chased you through falling rubble, fought prisoners that looted the remains of your cell...
-->'''The Hero:''' Dug through the ruins of a town in order to find clues about you, and been buried alive by an avalanche...
-->'''The Hero:''' ...That inexplicably started as soon as I mentioned that someone besides you might be responsible for Bask.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Some of the Boss/Titan fights against the more powerful opponents qualify.
** The final battle with Akriloth, while he possesses the Fire Orb. He's so powerful that the Hero must hold a LegendaryWeapon to defeat him.
** An almost literal example when The Hero fights "dream" Kathool, a CaptainErsatz of [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Cthulhu]].
** In the Book 1 finale, The Hero and his/her dragon [[spoiler:destroy a dragon made of pure darkness that ''ate the sun'']].
** Another example in the Book 2 finale, when the Hero take down Titan Wargoth.
* DitzyGenius: The Hero is often presented as quite intelligent, but has plenty of IdiotHero moments that sometimes cross into TooDumbToLive territory.
* DontCallMeSir: Yashta continuously refers to the Hero as "master", much to the Hero's chagrin. At one point s/he yells at Yashta to refer to them by name.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: At the conclusion of Book 1, The Hero comes to be renowned worldwide for his/her deeds. But in Book 3, the current Headmaster of the Soulweaver academy has never even heard of you and makes you and Tomix perform grunt work like cleaning laundry.
* EnemyMine: S/he has been forced to do this several times over the course of the game.
** In Book 1, [[spoiler:s/he and Artix take down Noxus thanks to Vayle's help. Later in the finale, s/he teams up with Sepulchure to take Drakath down, as he has fused with Fluffy and is in control of the Ultimate Orb.]]
** In Book 2, [[spoiler:he or she agrees to work with Konnan (who's apparently trying to atone for his sins) and Xan (who's very much pissed off by... everything actually) against Wargoth, Destroyer of Worlds.]]
** In Book 3, [[spoiler:s/he works alongside Magus Hansa, from The Rose, to defeat Sek-Duat once and for all. It happens once again in Amityvale, when he works alongside Raven and Magus Neron (and ''even Safiria''!) to find a cure for lycanthropy. In the Tomix saga, the Hero and Tomix team up with Vaal in order to travel to Ynnugaap (the Deep Void) to stop Envy; though at this point, Vaal had lost his mage abilities and no longer opposed the Hero.]]
* ExperiencedProtagonist: Nearing the end of Book 1 and onwards, the Hero is regarded as an expert in all matters of heroing. The Hero is often assigned as general during wars, while younger heroes look to the Hero as [[TheMentor a mentor]].
* FailureKnight: No matter how heroic their deeds are, someone (Konnan, Alz'ein, Rolith, Jaania) will blame them for something they failed to accomplish because it's outside of their control. And it's still not including things they personally take as MyGreatestFailure people don't blame them of ([[spoiler:destruction of the Guardian Tower, Lady Celestia's death, the Ultimate Orb's destruction and Fiamme's subsequent possession by Wargoth, leaving the world at mercy of the Rose, Tomix's death by Danyel]]). You might start to think the hero as a SadClown at the more humorous moments.
* FamedInStory: The greatest hero of Lore who's heroic tales spread all over the land.
* FighterMageThief: The three starting classes.
* FourthWallObserver: The Hero delves into this a fair bit early in the game; being aware that they were in a video game, doing quests, and possessing a specific level. However over time as the game got more serious the Hero slips out of this, to the point where s/he may be confused when other characters [[BreakingTheFourthWall break the fourth wall]].
* GameFavoredGender: While most of the story can work for either gender with the same outcomes resulting, sometimes it becomes apparent that most of the players are assumed to be male, with the constant female [=NPCs=] flirting with the Hero.
* GenreSavvy: S/he knows exactly what to expect in a {{Troperiffic}} FantasyKitchenSink game.
* GondorCallsForAid: The Hero often calls in past allies against major threats.
** The Firewar has a lot of the Hero's past allies participating like Galanoth, Zhoom, Cysero, Warlic, and later Artix (after he comes back to his [[BrainwashedAndCrazy senses]]).
** In the Book 1 finale, many of the NPC allies like Warlic, Cysero, Lim, among others.
** Book 3's Growing Darkness Saga, Caitiff [[spoiler:[[BrainwashedAndCrazy corrupts]] the Hero's dragon and has it reign destruction over Lore.]] The Hero then spends a large portion of the Saga revisiting past allies and recruiting them to join the Hero's team (which at that point consisted of Symone, Valencia, and Ash). The allies include: Cinquefoil, Rolith, Alina, Mazurek, Rhubarb, Thyton, Kordana, Artix, the Popsprocket Gnomes, Zhoom, Warlic ([[AllPowerfulBystander who turns down the offer]]), Nythera (who Warlic sends in his place), Raven, and Aegis.
* HelloInsertNameHere: In the transcripts it is replaced with "<character>".
* TheHero: The player's very purpose in this game.
* HopeBringer: After progressing deep into the game where the Hero has acquired quite a reputation, s/he brings hope just by being present somewhere.
** The Frostval events reveal the Hero has become a symbol of hope to the moglins of Frostvale, and they celebrate every year in honor of the Hero saving them.
** In the Energy Orb Saga, Sepulchure states that people were huddling in fear from the darkness, and the Hero was one of the few candles of hope remaining.
** Tomix admits that the Hero is this to him as he has fond memories of their time in Ravenloss Saga Book 1.
-->'''Tomix:''' ... Instead my life is a chain of unfortunate events.\\
'''Character:''' Surely there must have been at least one good event.\\
'''Tomix:''' ''({{Beat}}'') You.\\
'''Character:''' Me?\\
'''Tomix:''' Yeah. After we met, during my hunt for Greed, I was always looking forward to your arrival in Ravenloss. I've really enjoyed adventures with you. It was good having someone else to watch your back.
** He tells the Hero this again during the Tomix Saga finale, when he gives his [[spoiler:FinalSpeech]].
-->'''Tomix:''' Keep on helping people, just like you have helped me thousands of times. You are an inspiration. A true hero.
** During the "Sulen'Eska" questchain, Sam tells the Hero (while disguised as Edd), he brought a positive atmosphere to Espina Rosa, and made help to lighten up some of the mean, bitter characters like Sofist and Vince. S/he also became someone for Sam to look up to, and gave him hope which he did not have when he first joined the Rose.
* HumanPopsicle: [[spoiler:The Hero's fate at the end of Book 2, getting frozen away at Jaania's hands. At the beginning of Book 3, after many years, The Hero's icy prison finally shatters.]]
* IdeaBulb: The Hero gets a candle in place of the lightbulb.
* IdiotHero: S/he is either this or the OnlySaneMan, [[IdiotBall depending on what the plot calls for]].
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Sort of. The Hero is given many chances to join the villains in their quest for power, but the "evil choice" provides a NonStandardGameOver WhatIf scenario that isn't canon to the main plot, so the "good choice" is what the Hero always chooses.
** The Hero comes very close to turning to the dark side (when under the hypnotic influence of [[TheCorrupter Kathool Atchoo]]), but manages to prevail- with some help from little Aquella and the [=DeathKnight=] twins (Diawe and Caran).
** Averted in "The Evil Artifact", where the Hero cannot resist the pull of Cloak Scrap, which tempted the Hero with power and keeps him/her from destroying it. That is, if they even consider destroying it in the first place instead of just holding onto it.
** At one point [[WordOfGod Tomix]] had stated the first permanent, consequential, evil choice is becoming a Fleshweaver. This results in the Hero consuming Aegis, certain quests being locked off, and some [=NPCs=] refusing to talk to the Hero. However, details are still in flux and these changes are not yet set in stone.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: In ''Corundum Corruption'', when Warlic summons the Hero to his MageTower, s/he asks why he wants help now after years of being locked up in his tower (and not helping), when [[spoiler:in fact, Warlic's still dealing with the after-effects of being split into two beings, and is trying to fully regain "enough control that [he's] not a danger to everyone around [him]."]] The Hero apologizes after the explanation.
* KarmaMeter: Averted. Unlike ''VideoGame/AdventureQuest'', which ''does'' have a KarmaMeter, and ''VideoGame/AdventureQuestWorlds'', where you can pick between "Good" and "Evil" factions, the [=DragonFable=] Hero is specifically Good, or at the very least Neutral.
** This is specifically brought up in "Interview", where the Hero gets interviewed by Sir Stephen during a show about interviewing evil villains. He asks the Hero a series of questions to determine whether they are "good", "evil", or "neutral". Depending on how the player answers, the outcome will be determined, where one of three scenarios will play. If the Hero is good, they will launch into a heroic speech showing s/he has ChronicHeroSyndrome. If the Hero is neutral it's revealed s/he is OnlyInItForTheMoney. If the Hero gets the evil outcome, it's revealed they were actually [[DemonicPossession possessed by an evil spirit]] who is the [[AllYourPowersCombined collected hatred of all the Hero's enemies combined]] but gets [[HeroicWillpower expelled out due to the Hero's strong will]].
** The first major permanent evil choice you can make that drastically effects gameplay is becoming a Fleshweaver. In this form, the Hero consumes [[ManEater Aegis and will begin devouring elemental spirits]]. Consequences include certain quests being locked off and {{NPC}}s refusing to talk to the Hero. Maybe. Although all of this is a maybe at this point.
* LatexPerfection: When infiltrating a Rose fortress, the Hero impersonates Edd, one of the Rose's soldiers, using a non-magical mask created by a face nomb plant. Aside from paler skin, your character is able to disguise as him perfectly, even if your character is a girl.
* LegendaryInTheSequel: Early on in the series, the Hero discovers that in the future (''VideoGame/AdventureQuest''), s/he has become the greatest [=DragonLord=] the world has known. It later becomes a case of FamedInStory by the end of Book 1.
* LivingLegend: S/he is hailed as the greatest hero of Lore. Having taken down some of the most powerful, fearsome monsters in the game, [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu some of which are well beyond human limits]].
* LoserProtagonist: On occasion, especially in the ScoobyDoo quest in Amityvale where s/he takes the place of Shaggy in the Mystery Inc. Gang.
* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: The Hero travels Lore taking down all of the many threats, while being aided by the local QuestGiver ally.
* TheMentor: To Sir Ano in his quest chain.
* MentalFusion: Dragonlords have the natural ability to telepathically communicate with their dragons. The Hero learns to do this in Book 3 after his/her bond with their Dragon becomes strong enough.
* MentalTimeTravel: In the "Yulgar's First Date", the Hero travels using a piece of [[OurTimeTravelIsDifferent time cake]], and ends up in the body of his/her child self 20 years ago.
* MetaGuy
* [[MoreHypnotizableThanHeThinks More Hypnotizable Than They Think]]: During the Water Orb saga.
* MuggedForDisguise: When the Hero gets thrown into jail at the gate between Swordhaven and Falconreach, s/he comes across a sleeping guard and one of the options is to strip his uniform and use it as a disguise to escape.
* NiceGuy: The Hero is generally very kind to others, excluding villains.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Does this quite often. So far, the Hero has managed to:
** Left a bomb on a ship carrying valuable water-breather potions, which mixed into the sea and made it so the potion was never required again.
** Accidentally help Nythera [[spoiler:murder Warlic]].
** [[MacGuffinDeliveryService Utterly fail to protect]] the various [[MacGuffin Mac Guffins]] from the antagonists that want them, including the [[spoiler:Primal Orbs]].
** Mess up the spell the Cauldron sisters were going to use to restore their [[BalefulPolymorph sisters to their natural forms]].
** Leading Queen Pallor right to her target, Vayle.
** Release [[spoiler:Sek-Duat's power back to him]].
** Cause Zorbak's StartOfDarkness after a short incident involving time travel.
* NonLethalKO: So far the only main ''Creator/ArtixEntertainment'' game where the player character doesn't actually die when the HP is reduced to zero, with a message saying they regain consciousness. The player will then be returned to the start of a quest map with 1 HP.
* OneManArmy: During wars, each player can take out hundreds of waves (usually around 5-8 monsters) each. There are also badges for defeating ''over'' 1000 and 4000 waves, which some players have achieved before. Go figure!
** During the Blood Moon, the Hero takes out an entire army single handedly and in-story, much to its leader, Jack Crescent's astonishment.
* OnlySaneMan: As mentioned above, s/he is either this or an IdiotHero [[IdiotBall depending on what the plot calls for]].
* PanickyExpectantFather: S/he freaks out upon learning that the dragon egg is about to hatch.
* PreMortemOneLiner: Gives on to Caitiff in "Calamity"
--> '''The Hero:''' '''When I'm through with you, not even the darkness will reclaim what is left...'''
* ProtagonistWithoutAPast: Initially nothing is revealed prior to "A Hero Is Bored", and s/he seemingly starts off as a hero. "Yulgar's First Date" sheds some light on what happened prior to getting into the hero business, where s/he was a normal kid.
** The upcoming Archvist questchain, will have a villain trying to find out about the Hero's past.
* PsychicBlockDefense: In "Interview", the Hero gets [[DemonicPossession possessed by an evil spirit]] who is the [[AllYourPowersCombined collected hatred of all the Hero's enemies combined]]. However [[HeroicWillpower his/her strong willpower]] allows the spirit to be somehow expelled.
* PungeonMaster: Enough to rival Artix. It gets taken UpToEleven in Frostval 2016, during Holly's story, where the Hero spouts ice puns in every second line of dialogue.
* RagTagBunchOfMisfits:
** In Book 2 where the Hero teams up with [[spoiler: The Professor, Konnan, Xan, and Jannia. Two of which were once his/her greatest enemies.]]
** In Book 3 Ravenloss, the Hero is part of the Void Ship crew which consists of: Tomix, Aegis, Izaac (another Soulweaver), Riadne (an Arachnomancer), Mysterious G/Eirr (a gnome engineer), Captain Mazurek (a pirate captain), Vaal (a Chaosweaver), Matey, Yashta, as well as several weavers and gnomes.
** In the Sulen'Eska questchain, the Hero joins the rebellion against the Rose. The team consists of two Wind Elves (Kara [=SuLema=] and Svera), a DragonRider (Mritha), a Clawkin (Bajacu'), and a [[MagicKnight MageKnight]] (Sir Leon).
** In Book 3 Amityvale, the Hero teams up with [[spoiler: Raven (a Rose recruit), Chaney and Lon (two werewolves), and Vampire Queen Safiria against Frydae.]]
* RageBreakingPoint: The Hero is more prone to losing their cool in Book 3, alongside the more serious events.
** In Swordhaven, Jaania's revelation to the Hero about alternate versions of him/herself really unsettles him/her, leading to an outburst at Circe.
** In Mogloween 2016, the long chain of inconveniences really push the Hero to their limits. Forcing to scavenge ingredients for Bubble, being reduced to 10% HP and close to passing out, continuously having information held back, and discovering the Cauldron Sisters were ''grounded''. The Hero is really pissed by the end, especially at [[{{Troll}} Myx]].
--> '''The Hero:''' Are you. Freaking. SERIOUS!?!?
** In the Black Winter War, Caitiff's actions have pushed the Hero past this and not the DespairEventHorizon as Caitiff had planned. The Hero repeatedly get angered and shouts at his/her allies, but his/her anger accumulates in the confrontation with Caitiff itself.
--> '''The Hero:''' '''When I'm through with you, not even the darkness will reclaim what's left...'''
* SadClown: The Hero loves cracking lame jokes and annoying enemies, but has to deal with a lot of grief and turmoil for failing to save many lives. In one of Sir Ano's quests, the Hero explains it's all a part of a strategy to be a hero.
-->'''The Hero:''' Laugh in the face of danger. Use your humor to fight off fear. And if the jokes are bad enough. They might just drive your enemies away. That's both an efficient use of energy AND entertaining!
* ScreamingWarrior: And what a variety of screams s/he has!
* SnarkKnight: Engages in sarcasm from time to time.
* SpeakInUnison: With Artix, in a lengthy sequence in ''Moonridge: Saved!''
* TalkingToThemself: A '''lot'''. The Hero notices in the ''Water Orb'' Saga, and comments s/he should probably stop doing that.
* ToHellAndBack: During the Bacon Origins questchain, the Hero journeys into the Underworld twice and emerges victorious from [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu an encounter with Death]].
* TookALevelInBadass: Over the course of the series s/he develops from a clueless newbie, and ends up becoming the ''greatest hero of Lore.'' As well as the fact, they gain new abilities and stats as they level up.
* {{Troll}}: Quite often before fighting a villain, the Hero loves to annoy them to death first. This is ''especially'' prevalent in Book 1 when the game was more light-hearted. The Hero gets [[ShooOutTheClowns a lot more serious]] after the TimeSkip in Book 3.
** During the first ever Mogloween, when confronting Jack Strife.
-->'''The Hero:''' AH HA! I've got you now Jack Strife!\\
'''Jack Strife:''' That's PUMPKIN KING Jack Strife now!\\
'''The Hero:''' Oh so you were the "pumpkin prince" last year?\\
'''Jack Strife:''' WHAT?! NO! I'm just the Pumpkin King now. That's all.\\
'''The Hero:''' Well, you just can't just "be" the king. It's a title of nobility. You have to be of royal blood to become a king. Where is your kingdom?\\
'''Jack Strife:''' Kingdom... I... you... Listen, I just made myself the Pumpkin King, OK?\\
'''The Hero:''' Ok, fine. Then I'm a king too.\\
'''Jack Strife:''' YOU CAN'T JUST... (deep breaths Jack...count to ten)... Ok, If I am the Pumpkin King, what are you the king of, hero?\\
'''The Hero:''' I'm the king of Kickin'-Your-Teeth-In Town! Let's go, Gourd-for-brains!
** When confronting Sek-Duat XV with Zhoom.
-->'''Sek-Duat XV:''' You two should be DEAD!\\
'''The Hero:''' We ARE! We've come back from the grave to haunt you for your misdeeds! [=OOOOoooOOoooOOooo=]!\\
'''Zhoom:''' Don't be silly.\\
'''The Hero:''' You're no fun at all.
* WeCanRuleTogether: The Hero is often offered this by the BigBad of a questchain. The game will sometimes give the option of picking the Evil choice, but this always results in a NonStandardGameOver, where you're presented with a short paragraph, which is a scenario of what would happen ''if'' they had picked this option and suffering the consequences for his/her treachery, before the game gives a "second chance" to make the right choice.
* WildCardExcuse: Sometimes the Hero likes to use the same lame excuse to justify a series of questions, and [[FridgeLogic it always works]].
** In the Dark Orb questchain, when the Hero tries to get past the Gatekeeper using Zorbak's student I.D. card, that's expired and says he's expelled.[[note]]
--> '''The Gate Keeper:''' LET ME SEE YOUR STUDENT ID CARD!\\
'''The Hero:''' Sure, sure... Here ya go.\\
'''The Hero:''' Yeah, that's because... you know... magic.\\
'''The Gate Keeper:''' OH... WELL... YES... THAT IS UNDERSTANDABLE.\\
'''The Hero:''' Magic.\\
'''The Gate Keeper:''' HMMM... YES.. I SEE. THAT WOULD EXPLAIN IT.\\
'''The Gate Keeper:''' BUT THIS CARD IS ALSO EXPIRED!\\
'''The Hero:''' Magic!\\
'''The Gate Keeper:''' AH, YES. THAT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME...\\
** Again in the Sulen'Eska questchain, while the Hero infiltrates the Rose prison by disguising as a Rose soldier named Edd, with a mask that's too pale.

'''The Hero:''' Dumplings.\\
'''Private Bradley:''' Right, right, I keep forgetting, sorry.

[[folder:The Hero's Dragon]]

!!The Hero's Dragon
One of two dragons that hatch from the eggs in the White and Black Dragon Boxes--the dragon from the Black Dragon Box is destined to [[ExactWords destroy a world]], while the dragon from the White Dragon Box is destined to save the world. Due to a mix-up, Sepulchure and The Hero end up with the wrong dragons. [[spoiler:Their attempts to ScrewDestiny are foiled by a ProphecyTwist--The Hero's Dragon destroys the planet-sized Super Mega Ultra Darkness Dracolich while the other dragon [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices itself]] to save the world from it]].
* AllAnimalsAreDogs: The Dragon displays some dog like behavior, such as begging, and the Hero feeding it treats.
* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: There are quite a few instances in Book 3 where the Dragon is the playable characters, which include the "Dragon hatches you" cutscene, the "Hide and Seek" quest, the "Sulen'Eska" questchain there's "Dragon Rider War" and "An Uncertain Future", and in the Caitiff questchain there's "Doomed".
* AntiAntiChrist: It was originally prophesied that the Dragon would be the one to destroy the world, but in a bid to ScrewDestiny it ends up being the savior of the world and helps the Hero defeat countless threats to Lore. [[spoiler: Turns out it was actually a ProphecyTwist, where both Dragons fulfill their fate, but with different interpretations. Check the character summary above.]]
* BadassAdorable: It's so tiny and cute, yet it's the most powerful pet that can be acquired and can do devastating damage to enemies.

* BrattyHalfPint: Once you can understand the Dragon, it's revealed to have a serious attitude problem.
* DarkIsNotEvil: It hatched from the Black Dragon Box, and when it hatches dark shadows emerge. However the dragon turns out to be the savior of the world. Also, it's possible to use the "Elementalize Your Dragon" thing to give it elemental dark powers. This becomes especially prominent after Caitiff corrupts it into a Dragon of Doom and has the "Evil" element, but once it breaks free of Caitiff's control it is still loyal to the Hero despite remaining corrupted.
* DeadpanSnarker: In the "Mysterious LLC" quest, if you have a Dragon Amulet.

* {{Familiar}}: While the Dragon is usually called the Hero's pet, the relationship between them is much deeper than a typical master-pet relationship. The Dragon is BondCreatures with the Hero and their closest companion and a loyal friend.
* FlyingFirepower: Can literally fly and breathe fire.
* EggMacGuffin: Starts out as this.
* ElementalPowers: The Dragon can be elementalized to any of nine primary elements inbetween battles.
* HelloInsertNameHere: The Dragon starts out with the name "Draco", but Dragon Amulet Holders can change its name.
* HeroicSacrifice:
** [[spoiler:The Dragon gets in the path of Sek-Duat draining the Hero's life energy, and ends up getting drained itself. Fortunately it doesn't die.]]
** [[spoiler:In the Caitiff questchain of the Valtrith Saga, the quest "Doomed", the Dragon sacrifices itself and joins Caitiff in order to spare the Hero's life.]]
* HumanityEnsues: [[spoiler:When the Dragon gets purified from the effects of Caitiff's corrupting doom, it momentarily gains a human silhouette before reverting back to a Dragon. The Hero confirms this later on that the Dragon briefly turned human.]]
* {{Irony}}: The Dragon thinks of the Hero as its pet.
* LoyalAnimalCompanion: To the Hero, who the Dragon has undying loyalty for.
* TheMedic: After enough feeding and training the Dragon, it gains the ability to heal you in battle.
* MentalFusion: Dragons can form a mental link with their Dragonlord partners, and can communicate telepathically. In Book 3 the Hero's bond with the Dragon becomes strong enough that they can communicate this way. The Dragon proceeds to make fun of the Hero for taking so long to realize.
* NonHumanSidekick: In case you haven't realized its species yet.
* OlderAlterEgo: Temporarily becomes an adult for [[BossBattle "Titan" battles]].

* TeamPet: When the Hero has guests in their party.
* TechniColorFire: No matter what element it has been set as, while it's a baby, the flames will remain an orangey-yellow. This changes when it's in Titan form and the flame's color will match that of the element chosen.
* {{Troll}}: On a few instances the Dragon loves to annoy the Hero.
* [[spoiler:YouCantFightFate: Averted. The prophecy is defied and the world destroyer dragon is the savior, so it's actually becomes an example of ScrewDestiny.]]
