Added DiffLines:

* TheUnfought: Carborundum is never actually fought, due to him being invulnerable. Instead, you get past him by collapsing the floor he's standing on, plunging him into the abyss.
** The Insect Queen can be this, if you fight her the way the game designers intended. You CAN fight her in combat, but due to her DamageSponge nature, it's very difficult. Instead, you collapse the cave ceiling on top of her, impaling her on a cluster of stalactites.


* CaptainErsatz: Red Lotus is [[Comicbook/RedSonja Red Sonja]] wearing a [[{{Stripperific}} leather leotard and tight high boots]] while Chaindog is [[Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian Conan]] wearing an armor.

Added DiffLines:

* SarcasmMode: Once you're nearing the end of the game, it will tell you in a text log that (paraphrased) : "All you have to do now is defeat a bloodbeast and three dragons. Easy-peasy, ain't it ?"

Added DiffLines:

* AWinnerIsYou: What do you get for painstakingly fighting your way through Deathtrap Dungeon and defeating Melkor the Red Dragon ? [[spoiler: A less-than-a-minute long cutscene, depicting a giant blue goblin emerging from behind Melkor's corpse and creepily laughing at the player. It does not bring any closure, you don't get to see your character getting their reward, and you just end up wondering who the ''hell'' that giant goblin is, how he ended up there, and what his purpose is.]]
