* OverratedAndUnderleveled: Partially averted. While most of them are of low level (6 to 12) when recruited, if they are a specialist in an area expect at the very least 7 or even 9 points in the relevant skills. For example, Agathinos starts with engineering ''9''.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: All of them are based on the companions from the base game, though how much this applies varies per companion. Some such as Reginhard have been completely reinvented from their base character, others have similarities but also enough differences like Brunhild, and others just had the names changes like Clovis.

* TheFriendNobodyLikes: He has the most dislikes of any companion in Viking Conquest - most only have two dislikes and a few have three, but Reginhard sits at ''five'' total, all of which are mutual in dislike. While Story Mode prevents companions from leaving to maintain the integrity of the plot, in sandbox mode this makes Reginhard more trouble than he's worth in most parties.

* TokenEvilTeammate: [[http://mountandblade.wikia.com/wiki/Heroes This wiki article about hirable heroes]] includes a guide suggesting two companions setup (built accordingly to their mutual like-dislike relations): one for early game, one for latter in the campaign.

Despite her background and not disliking raid actions, she appears in the suggestions of "good" party members.
