  • Ascended Meme: Kingsisle made a video about how an employee traveled to africa to record animal sounds for the Zafaria update. He returns to find the creators looking at a picture of penguins and thinking that Penguinonia might be a better world to release. Players breifly latched on to the name Penguinonia and several updates later, the penguin 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.
  • Reality Subtext: Azteca, an Mayincatec world, has a huge comet on a collision course with it was released November 2012. This is a nod to the fears that the world would end when the Mayan Calender ends in on December 21, 2012.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Most pets that aren't just a mini version of some monster, and the character animators are very aware of this.
