Added DiffLines:

* UnwinnableByMistake: It is impossible to get OneHundredPercentCompletion on the mobile version because the final round of [[spoiler:your match against Creatos, your last opponent]], will [[TheBattleDidntCount restart]] if you finish him with a normal combo, which means that you can only win if you [[spoiler:use a special combo]]. Since the second challenge match requires you to defeat him without [[spoiler:special combos]] [[TimedMission within a time limit]] on just a single health bar, there is no way you can win it and therefore, you cannot earn all 90 stars. Any attempt to earn that last star will always end in your defeat, thanks to this bug.

Added DiffLines:

* Underestimated badassery
** Nearly all of your opponent who are capable of speech do this to you in some way. Only the snake head of the chimera seems to realize you're bad news, but he's out-voted.
** Master Yee, even as he is honor bound to try and kill you, treats this as a learning experience for you.

Added DiffLines:

* BoltOfDivineRetribution: Your first opponent, Tagon, asks his god of war Arkos for help after he goes down the first time. When Tagon doesn't get an immediate response, he shrugs off needing him, which earns him a lightning bolt to the head, and he immediately apologizes.


Added DiffLines:

* DivineIntervention: When you knock down Tagon the first time, the war god Tagon worships, Arkos, turn his sword into a flaming one. And after that, gives his shield the power to shoot lightning. And when that isn't enough, he turns Tagon into a giant.

* WakeUpCallBoss: Tagon - though he's the first boss, he's still by no means a pushover, and the fight against him is essentially the game holding up a sign saying "This game will not be easy. Be warned."

* [[NotUsingTheZWord Not Using the Z Word]]: The Sea Witch and Gargadan are an obvious gorgon and chimaera respectively, yet they are never referred to by that specific name in the game (The Sea Witch is called a "cruel creation of the gods" and Gargadan is described as "an experiment gone horribly wrong"). Inverted with Ixthid, who is referred to as a Beholder in his (its?) bio.
