These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Canon Sue: For some, Warlic is really beginning to push the envelope with the whole "coming back from the dead" and almost painfully obvious thing about being Wargoth's son. But hey, an Author's Saving Plot Twist could be in the works.
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 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. Word of God said she would be the trainer for a druid class.
Foe Yay: Drakath's rivalry with The Hero, Drakonnan's general hatred of The Hero, and the obvious tension between Xan and Warlic.
Project C8H10N4O2 involves coffee-related items, since C8H10N4O2 is the molecular formula for caffeine.
Tomix the Soulweaver's facial hair is called a "soul patch".
Balloon Chickencow Pet's text tells us that you want to call it Herbert. President Herbert Hoover was the one who promised "a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage." This doubles as a reference to Looney Tunes, as there was a yeti who captured Bugs Bunny and called him Herbert (and wanted to hug and squeeze him).
In the quest "Eclipse" the Mysterious Stranger Dragon eats the sun. Many ancient cultures believed that a solar eclipse was caused by a dragon eating the sun.
Goddamned Bats: 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.
Good Bad Bugs: There's a slight glitch in the Earth Orb saga where you play as En (minus Tropy). This can help you fight enemies, but if you save it as your default armour, kiss your account goodbye.
Gut Punch: The Chapter One finale provides a nice few of these, such as being absolutely annihilated by Sepulchure, the guardian tower being destroyed, several characters being Killed Off for Real, and another 16 million waves of undead get thrown at you...all in one quest.
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.
Stop Helping Me!: Princess Victoria, when The Hero keeps hinting towards her double life as Robina. The Hero does not hesitate to lampshade this.
Ugly Cute: The army of baby dracoliches that Zorbak assembles to conquer the world. The would-be invasion is thwarted when the people of Amityvale adopt the babies as pets.
The Untwist: Konnan becomes Drakonnan. Vayle is the Necromantress. The latter is lampshaded by the hero, who says s/he "kinda saw that one coming."
Villain Sue: Sepulchure seems to be an interesting case. His many 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 The Hero 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. If it weren't for Drakath becoming The Starscream 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 Karma Houdini.
What an Idiot: Bragging about how you're more powerful than the freakin' Elemental Lords won't do you any favours, Nythera.
