* GadgeteerGenius: He's the character Dan goes to in order to get new weapons and upgrade ones he already has. [[spoiler:He also invented a time machine, although it didn't work until Dan returned some missing parts to it]].


Added DiffLines:

* MissionControl: He acts as this for Dan, telling him where to go and briefing him on what's going on in each level.


* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Incredibly full of himself and condescending, but is still a hero and sincerely wishes Dan luck on his adventure. Then when Dan does beat Zarok and returns as a true hero, Ravenhooves happily steps up to poor him some wine.
* LastOfHisKind: Claims to be the last prince of the centaurs. Well, he ''was'' back when he was alive, anyway...

Added DiffLines:

* TokenGoodTeammate: Of all Zarok's monster minions, they're proved to be the only ones purely good who genuinely despise their boss for his evil deeds and considering the advice that one of 'em delivers to Dan in "The Sleeping Village" level we can see that they have some rightfully moral standards.


* DontFearTheReaper: He might be Death, but he's not a bad guy at all. Even more so in ''Resurrection'' where he more directly guides Dan.

* NiceGirl: She is incredibly benevolent, unfailingly polite, and one of the only heroes to believe Dan has the makings of a true hero right off the bat. ''Resurrection'' does make her more stern and a bit overbearing, but she remains every bit as kindly and supportive of Dan.

* {{Expy}}: He looks like a cross between [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]] and [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Jafar.]] ''Resurrection'' further emphasizes his resemblance to the latter [[ScaledUp by having him turn into a giant snake.]]



* OneWingedAngel: When Zarok is finally forced to fight Daniel himself, he uses a spell to turn himself into a monster before stepping into the ring. In the original game, he transforms into a bizarre MixAndMatchCritter that clucks like a chicken [[BeastWithAHumanFace and has Zarok's head on a long neck]]. In ''Resurrection'', [[ScaledUp he instead transforms into a giant cobra snake.]]

to:

* MsFanservice: In ''Resurrection'', she displays copious amounts of {{gainaxing}} and makes nothing but flirtations and DoubleEntendre towards Sir Dan. To be fair, she did that in the original game as well minus the bounciness.



* TheDandy: The original game portrays Ravenhooves like this, balancing his snootiness with enough class to help prevent him from falling straight into UpperClassTwit territory. Alas, ''Resurrection'' went ''exactly'' in that direction...

* CardCarryingVillain: Really likes to make it clear to everyone around him he is a wicked sorcerer, especially in ''Resurrection''.
* EvilGloating: He frequently taunts Daniel believing himself to be superior.

LargeHam: Very partial to long monologues and putting on a show in the original game. ''Resurrection'' took it UpToEleven, complete with a running gag of him trying to master an evil laugh. [[spoiler: Amusingly, he only masters it after already losing and seconds before he dies.]]
