** The mere fact that the [[MemeticMutation memetic]] Quad Leper build, normally considered a joke because it consigns the half of the party in the back ranks to [[CloseRangeCombatant uselessness]] and relies on the [[PowerfulButInaccurate least accurate]] attacks in the game to do damage, is actually ''[[ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman shockingly viable]]'' against the [[ThatOneBoss/DarkestDungeon Shuffling Horror]], which scrambles a player's party arrangement. [[note]] With four Lepers, the two in the front concentrate on chopping while the two in the back heal and buff themselves as they wait for the Horror to shuffle them to the front, where they can do massive damage.[[/note]]

* You can get some just ''bizarre'' results from the RNG going. It is possible to, for example, have a character be repeatedly seduced by the magic of the Siren, and then gain Nymphomania and Love Interest at the end of the run, or a hero coincidentally getting [[BringMyBrownPants the runs]] when a bas relief's "dark power" surges through them.

* Level 5 Cove expeditions feature an enemy called the [[https://darkestdungeon.gamepedia.com/Squiffy_Ghast Squiffy Ghast]], the EvilCounterpart to the Jester. To drive the point home, he slides to the front row to set up for a high stress damage skill that moves him to the back again, and he's also programmed to target the Jester first if there's one in the party. There's even an achievement for killing him with a Jester called [[Film/ThisIsSpinalTap "Mine Goes to 11"]]. It's a pretty funny thought imagining [[SkewedPriorities the Jester and Ghast dropping everything]] [[BattleOfTheBands just to have a musical duel]].

* The Cove's Giant Oysters are notably the only curio type in the game that's interactable with ''dog treats''. Doing so gives the interacting hero +25 DODGE ([[FridgeLogic somehow]]) and the resulting subtitle looks like it's lampshading the fact that the interaction was CrazyEnoughToWork.
