YMMV: The Tower of Druaga

The anime

  • Adaptation Displacement: Mostly played straight, except among gaming communities.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: In second season, Fatima is seen trying to use her "staff" without her usual adventurer outfit. It looked like a very bad firecracker. At the end of the episode she changed her clothes and got back her magic powers. Is Charisma boost that important for sorceress?
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Gilgamesh (Gil) is voiced by Tomokazu Seki, who also voiced another Gilgamesh. Both are based on the legendary Sumerian King, the latter far more than the former.
  • Marty Stu: Jil in the first episode fantasy is blatant parody of one.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Neeba, either since his betrayal in season 1, or his killing Henaro at the end of season 2.
  • Purity Sue: Both Kaaya and Jil both can be argued as fitting the role, with Kaaya doubling as a Relationship Sue for Jil.
  • Tear Jerker: Done in episode 7
