Big Lipped Alligator Moment: In both versions of the game, the Batmobile occasionally appears outside Hagatha's cave. In the remake, it crashes against a cliff offscreen.
Complete Monster: The Father in the Fan Remake starts off merely as an Evil Chancellor who sets Graham up to head to Kolyma. Two of his lieutenants have taken up residence there (one of which had been holding Valanice captive out of petty spite and had killed other women who had aroused her ire). Graham, being Graham, is able to dodge their traps and helps convince one to leave. After returning home with Valanice, Graham exposes the Evil Chancellor who abruptly goes One-Winged Angel, levels a deadly curse, and vanishes. The flash-forward scene during the Air Gem test has his showing up at Graham's darkest hour to gloat, the Fanon dialogue indicating that he had another of his mooks kidnap and enslave Graham's kid for sixteen years, set the three-headed dragon on Daventry to ruin it, and then forced Graham to sacrifice his remaining child to it. The next part of the curse drops Graham with heart failure at a moment of triumph, and the last gets a Prophecy Twist, thankfully. Thing is, he really doesn't have it in for Graham per se. Graham just happens to be standing between him and some leftover power from Daventry's first king.
Another from the remake, after whipping up the Anti-Magic emerald, the sorcerer comes back and tries to kill or transmogrify Graham. Graham's trinket pulls a No Sell on the wizard. Graham then pulls his sword and tells that enchanter to get lost and never come back.
A third from the remake. After finding out what Gervain really is, and had set up the whole adventure to get him killed, Graham answers his oily greeting with a right hook in front of everyone and loudly tells the whole court what kind of snake they have in their midst.
