* OurMonstersAreDifferent : Introduced during the War for Frysteland, Delta V's mountain people are known as {{Krampus}}, and their costume reflects the more traditional Krampus (the Krampus Trader and Krampus Warrior characters wear goatlike gas masks, and King Alaric wears a giant horned headdress). The Yetis also fall under this trope.

* DarkerAndEdgier: EpicDuel is more aimed at 'mature' players and contains some weapons coated with much ''red blood'' and some painfully sharp weapons (which includes ''cricket bats and bazookas'') which can add some terror considering the size of them.

''[=EpicDuel=]'' is Creator/{{Artix Entertainment}}'s sixth major game, and second MMORPG. The game began development in 2007 under Epic Inventions, LLC, which was purchased by Artix in December 2009.

A teaser at the end of the Infernal Infiltration War implied a crossover with MechQuest.

* BribingYourWayToVictory: Players can purchase Varium, which acts as a premium in-world currency. Varium items typically have better stats, and an advantage over non-paying players in battle, making this game quite a ''literal'' version of this trope.

* BribingYourWayToVictory: Players Originally an example of this with premium currency items being better, the recent game phase known as Omega removed all instances of this. Now, all weapons are virtually the same and can be bought for in-game currency or premium currency, depending on whether you're more willing to shell out cash or spend time farming to earn the weapon. Promo packages still exist and are generally better, but the Developers have created a policy that will release the promo items into the game for everyone to purchase Varium, which acts as a premium in-world currency.
