YMMV: 7th Sea
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Cathay protects itself behind a wall of fire which is great.
- Magnificent Bastard: Many villains, given the setting, though the one who pulls it off with the most aplomb is likely Giovanni Villanova, the most powerful Prince of Voddace; he's explicitly a sociopath who thoroughly enjoys looking and acting the villain he is, but he's so good at what he does that people still can't help but to get entangled in any number of his sinister plots. Oh, and he's one of the setting's greatest swordsmen as well as a member of NOM's Council of Thirteen.
- Moral Event Horizon: Built into the rules, a PC who hits -30 reputation points becomes a villain, and the GM takes away their character sheet. Although a Machiavelli-style Advantage will put it off to -40 or -50, depending on how strongly the ends justify the means.
