* FranchiseKiller: ''Seven Sorrows'', which was released as an ObviousBeta with all of the touted new features conspicuously missing, as well as most series staples from previous games, such as Bomb Potions and ''all'' power-ups.
** WhatCouldHaveBeen: The game had a very prestigious team at first, with the likes of John Romero and Josh Sawyer attached to it, and was aimed as an extremely ambitious franchise resurrection. Sadly, the original devs left and the project collapsed into abject mediocrity.
** FanonDiscontinuity: Because of all the flaws that were in ''Seven Sorrows'', most fans ignore it completely and instead believe that the franchise went out in a blaze of glory with ''Dark Legacy''.
* HeyItsThatVoice: The voice of Sumner in ''Legends'' and ''Dark Legacy'' is Doug Lawrence, the voice of many {{Nickelodeon}} characters, such as [[WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife Filburt the Turtle]] and [[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants Plankton]].
