YMMV / Wizard 101

  • Ascended Meme: Around the time of the Zafaria update, Kingsisle released a video about an employee traveling to Africa to record animal sounds. It ended with a joke where he returns to find the developers considering doing a world called "Penguinonia" instead. Players briefly latched onto the name of the world, and several years later, the revolutionaries in Polaris have "Viva la Penguinonia!" as their battle cry.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The way Morganthe dies isn't the best way to go. She gets so overwhelmed with power that the ground beneath her collapses leaving her to fall into a neverending void. Although Malistaire eventually got to Darkmoor after being sucked into the void at Xibalba so Morganthe might have landed somewhere.
    • The cutscene at the end of Empyrea Part 1 is kind of terrifying. Mostly due to how cold Raven's reveal of her plan to end the Spiral and how her voice sounds as well. She sounds pretty malicious. The music definitely doesn't help, either.
