YMMV: Gauntlet

  • Awesome Music: The Sega Genesis installment, Gauntlet 4, has a soundtrack scored by Hitoshi Sakimoto and Masaharu Iwata. Their involvement with the game also happens to be a very late moment of fan rejoicing with people discovering the game through emulation.
    • The Desecrated Temple, especially the N64 version.
    • Also from Legends, the Castle Courtyard.
  • Game Breaker: Sumner in Dark Legacy, who has max stats in all areas. Though the difficulty in unlocking him makes him largely a Bragging Rights Reward.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Wizard Needs Food Badly".
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • In Dark Legacy, the Dream World's aptly-titled Nightmare level is pretty much the literal take on this.
    • The Wraith is this too.
    • Special mention goes to the Lich, who is the Guardian of the Forsaken Province and, if we're going in order of availability, the first boss. When he emerges from his grave, an ominous creaking noise is heard. During the fight, he occasionally taunts the heroes by whispering "Come here..." in a sinister tone. The guy has exposed flesh and bone, and can spit out bloody chunks that spawn maggots. While the fight is easy (Especially if you have the Book of Protection, and that's not even counting the levels you would have gained by the time you acquire it), this colossus is perhaps the most memorable boss in the game for this trope.
