- Horatio Hornblower:
- "The Even Chance": Midshipman Jack Simpson ruthlessly torments his fellow midshipmen, both physically and psychologically. He is a sadistic bully who takes great pleasure in his evil games. He claims that he knows the guys' secrets and what gnaws their souls, and uses it as blackmail. He keeps beating them mercilessly. His abuse of Archie Kennedy is the worst as he is the one most terrified of him, and Simpson's mere presence gives him stress-induced Convulsive Seizures. Simpson is able to manipulate the situation and is never held responsible, and the others get punished instead. Later he attempts to murder his shipmates in the middle of a raid by setting one adrift in a boat and shooting the other. When he's challenged to the Duel to the Death, he cheats and claims it was a misfire. Finally, when his life is spared, he's unable to deal with Cruel Mercy and tries to stab his opponent In the Back.
- "The Frogs and the Lobsters": Colonel Marquis Moncoutant is one of the leaders of French Royalist troops who set on a mission to restore the monarchy in France during the French Revolution with the help of the British Navy. However, he doesn't care much about the cause and not at all about his soldiers. The fate of other aristocrats doesn't concern him either, but he's very proud that he's Blue Blood and he believes that common people are impossible to improve, comparing them to animals. He killed a mayor and nearly shot a child for singing Marseillaise upon his arrival to his village, and later he keeps gleefully killing off villagers with his personal guillotine one after another for no bigger offence than selling old bread. He never shows any remorse for his evil deeds.

- Formed in 1982, LucasArts became a well-regarded and financially dominant PC gaming studio throughout the late 80s and early 90s for their ground-breaking adventure games. Well before they began to truly leverage the obvious licenses they had, they became best known for the Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion franchises, several one-offs such as Full Throttle, turning Sam & Max: Freelance Police from an indie comic hit to a household name, and even making Indiana Jones games that were actually good. Sometime around the mid-90s, however, there was a management shift as Star Wars games finally started coming out through their studio. Ron Gilbert, David Grossman, and Tim Schafer, along with many other key creative staff, drifted out of the company as they left to start their own projects or were let go. Several big games flopped, numerous other games were canceled, and slowly but surely, LucasArts converted into a Star Wars factory... which wouldn't have been a problem since some of these games were still memorable, but these eventually slid in quality and sales as well, with only out-sourced projects like Knights of the Old Republic managing to sell. The 2000s were largely defined by a massive series of CEOs coming in and out of the company, mass layoffs, one attempt to completely convert the studio into nothing more than a Star Wars licensing house, more layoffs, occasional attempts to market their old properties with remakes and even an attempt to get Monkey Island going again by licensing it out to some of the original staff that had since gone on to form Tell Tale Games. None of this really helped the company stay solvent and by 2013, with their last release being the terribly received and poorly-selling Kinect Star Wars and the massive failure of Star Wars: The Old Republic, all internal development was (again) shut down by new corporate owner Disney. While any of the IPs could resurface again, 2013 marked proper the end of its thirty-year history.

- Faction-Specific Endings: Dynasty Warriors 7 had this for every kingdom... with the added twist that each is canon. Every faction's ending simply ended at a high point in their personal history.
