* {{Adorkable}}: Absolutely. She really takes after Graham.

* {{Adorkable}}: Graham as a teenager is this in spades. Several times, he will excitedly release a stream of ideas, bouncing all around the scenery. He also does it again when he's much older in Chapter 4.



* {{Adorkable}}: Neese is this just as much as, if not more than, Graham.



* TalkingToHimself: Royal Guards #1 and 2 frequently talk to each other, and they're both voiced by Gideon Emery.

* MeaningfulName: Whisper's intention for his odd choice of a nickname. He explains that it's actually Whisper with an emphasis on the ''Whisp'' part and it actually refers to his amazing speed. His intended meaning of his nickname unfortunately isn't that very clear to others.

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: His real name is [[MeaningfulName Sir Cumference]], but he's rebranding himself and rarely referred to as anything other than Acorn.
* PetTheDog: His affection for his squirrel "friend" Princess Madeline of Avalon is the first hint that he's not as bad as he seems.

** The antidote against everything that he sells in Chapter 2 does work, so not ''everything'' he sells is fake or useless.
* InsistentTerminology: He persists in referring to the animals who pull his wagon as "majestic unicorns," even though they're really goats. However, if Graham asks him about it in Chapter 2, he admits that they ''are'' goats - but he refuses to call them that because the bridge trolls eat goats, and as long as they think the creatures are unicorns, the trolls leave them alone.

* UngratefulBastard: When Graham helps him fix his wagon, he either scams him with a fake ticket to the knight entrance exams or steals Graham's money when he turns down the "discount." Even later when Graham saves him from goblins, Old Graham will mention how the Merchant immediately forgot it. However, in Chapter 2, when Graham meets up with him again, he will react to Graham differently if he saved him in the previous chapter or not. The same goes for Chapter 4, as well as if Mr. Fancycakes was rescued or not.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: His exact fate is unknown, as he's never seen again after Chapter 4, but in the epilogue, [[spoiler:Gwen and Taskia encounter Mr. Fancycakes driving the Merchant's wagon.]]

* TokenEvilTeammate: Unlike Olfie and Mr. Waddles, who are both pretty nice guys, Pillare is the rudest of the bridge trolls and advocates the most violent approaches to resolving their strike. For example, in order to get humans to cross more gently across their backs? She recommends eating their legs and making them crawl across.

* UndyingLoyalty: As goofy as they are, they're also completely devoted to the Daventry royal family. Anything that wishes to get to Graham, Valanice, and their children must first go through Kyle and Larry. [[spoiler:This leads to Larry's death in the beginning of Chapter 4.]]



* IWasQuiteALooker: Holding up her portrait to Hagatha's magic canvas will show that Bramble was actually a sexy {{Punk}} chick in her younger days.
* PregnantHostage: While the entire town is captured, Bramble just happens to be pregnant as well. Oh, and she's [[IllGirl sick]] on top of that.

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: An odd example, as her colour will change depending on choices made in Chapter 3. If she's Princess Neese, she's wearing a purple gown with purple gems in her tiara. If she's Princess Vee, she's dressed in green with matching gems.

** Vee has the background of coming from eastern Kolyma similar to the one that Valanice had in the original canon (although never mentioned in the games themselves). She also has the dress color that Valanice had in ''[[KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride KQ7]]'' as well as a sensible personality that could be comparable to the one Valanice had in that game.

* BigBad: [[spoiler: He's the final obstacle for Graham in obtaining knighthood in chapter one, was behind the kidnappings conducted by the goblins in chapter two, was in league with Hagatha, the ArcVillain of chapter three, and was manipulating Queen Icebella in chapter four. He's the OverarchingVillain of the entire series and is by far the most personal antagonist Graham has gone up against, being responsible for the abduction of Graham's infant son for eighteen years. In chapter five, he's the final villain again, and it's revealed he's the reason why Graham is dying and can't be saved.]]

* BeyondTheImpossible: According to his answers to Graham's taunts during the Duel of Speed, he's capable of some things of this nature. Apparently he can run fast enough to reverse the flow of time, "but is morally obligated not to."



* IWasQuiteALooker: Inverted. Placing her portrait in front of Hagatha's magic canvas will reveal she had thick glasses and some [[BracesOfOrthodonticOverkill pretty intense-looking braces]] when she was younger.

A distant and insane ice sorceress who takes over either Tanalore or Avalon in Chapter IV, depending on the player's decisions in Chapter V. She is obsessed with two things: crafting puzzles and decorating her home with ice sculptures... using unwitting "friends" as her subjects in both cases. The family stumbles across her while on vacation, but there's more going on there than meets the eye...

* DiabolusExMachina: It seems like [[spoiler: ''both'' Vee and Neese are saved from the tower at the end of Chapter 3. But as it turns out, the one who didn't turn out to be Valanice is tainted by Hagatha's ice magic, twisted into a villainous sorceress, and falls under Manny's thumb offscreen.

Added DiffLines:

** While not strictly parental, his relationship with [[spoiler:Mordack]] has some emotionally abusive tones to it.

** Graham performs his people's salute when he encounters his body years later.

Added DiffLines:

* CanonCharacterAllAlong: It's strongly implied that he grows up to be the tailor Graham meets in ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder King's Quest V]]''.


* AnIcePerson: Literally - not only does she have the ability create anything out of ice and transmute things into ice, but she herself is made out of ice. [[spoiler: [[LiterallyShatteredLives This doesn't end well for her.]]]]



* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: She's either Val or Neese, depending on which one Graham didn't marry at the end of Chapter 3. Thanks to the ice magic she was tainted by and Manny's manipulations, she has lost all memory of who she was and become an obsessed hermit who spends her days obliviously turning anyone unfortunate enough to come across her kingdom into ice sculptures.]]

While Valanice was busy ruling the kingdom and keeping her family together, her best friend was turning into a monster and losing her mind. All Valanice did was send letters, and when those stopped she never made any greater effort to reach out.

She gets an icicle through her hand for her trouble, but that seemed to be the end of it. But alas, thanks to that sacrifice, she was tainted with ice magic, becomes a living ice sculpture, loses her mind and falls under the sway of an evil sorcerer, while no rescue ever comes from her friends.

* PoorJudgeOfCharacter: Believes the creepy sphinx that lives in her castle is her best friend, though to be fair she's not in the best frame of mind to make sense of it: she also believes the people she turns into sculptures are her friends as well.
