* AgonyOfTheFeet: Killing a giant features ActionCommands which include Skarin hitting it in the heel.



* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: Whe he dies, Skarin only loses his rage charges and his mana meter. Dying during boss fights or stealth-based missions reset them, but dying during a mass battle doesn't.

Dying during boss fights or stealth-based missions reset them, an assault on a standard mission resets the place, but dying during a mass battle doesn't.just moves back you to the shaman, while the battle continues. In some instance, getting back to a questgiver after completing a quest is quicker if you commit suicide (by jumping in the sea or down of a high enough cliff) than if you walk out of the area on your feet.
* DerelictGraveyard: On the second island, one of the Viking clans that you must find is hidden on a hill, among dozens of abandoned standing longships.


Added DiffLines:

* OnlySixFaces: There are less than a dozen of predetermined models for the Vikings allies. Even the questgivers and merchants are identical to the other ones.


Added DiffLines:

* NoticeThis: Items that can be picked up (mead barrels, bags of gold) or interacted with (urns, chests, locks - if you have the key, etc) are surrounded by a golden glow. [=NPCs=] who can be talked with have a "!" floating above their head.


Added DiffLines:

* ResurrectiveImmortality: Each time Skarin dies, he respawns in his base (or next to the shaman during the battles), while retaining all his inventory and the progress of his liberation of the area.


Added DiffLines:

* SuperDrowningSkills: Water doesn't kill Skarin ''immediately'', but standing with water above your face drains you health so fast that you'll die in a dozen of seconds unless you leave the water immediately. Played straight if you dive in a deep enough water body.


* Gorn: The game is very violent and gory, especially thanks to messy finishing moves. You'll be hacking through necks, cutting arms, and bissecting legion mooks as if they were no tomorrow.

* BackStab: When you are sneaking, the closest unaware enemy can be attacked through an action command which performs an undodgeable and gory OneHitKill attack.



* CleanCut: Finish moves and backstab attacks show Skarin cutting limbs, backs, or necks as if they were made of butter.



* HeroicMime: Skarin doesn't have much to say.

* Gorn: The game is very violent and gory, especially thanks to messy finishing moves. You'll be hacking through necks, cutting arms, and bissecting legion mooks as if they were no tomorrow.
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: Backstab attacks and some finishing moves consist in Skarin bissecting an enemy in two with a powerful two-weapons strike aimed in the stomach area.
* HeroicMime: Skarin doesn't have much to say.say, but [=NPCs=] usually react as if they were responding to (unheard) lines from him.



* MillionMookMarch: The main menu background shows an infinite army of Legion mooks advancing on a bridge in the middle of a ruined city.



* OffWithHisHead: The combos in this game tend to leave every enemy in Skarin's way missing a number of body parts, and nearly every finisher takes performs a decapitation at some point.

* SpikesOfVillainy: Drakan's armour is full of them.
* StealthBasedMission: See above, though only a few missions really require noting nothing but stealth, and there's some breathing room for errors.


* DeathFromAbove: During the mass battles, you can summon a dragon to destroy all the enemies on a specific area. It requires runes, which are looted on shamans (that you killed yourself unstead of burning them with a dragon strike) and champions.
* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: Whe he dies, Skarin only loses his rage charges and his mana meter. Dying during boss fights or stealth-based missions reset them, but dying during a mass battle doesn't.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Skarin has definitely earned the right to answer yes to this question. Especially since he single-handedly killed a god, and the Queen of the Underworld at that.

* DualWielding: Done with a variant, Skarin wields a sword and an axe.

to:

* DualWielding: Done with a variant, Skarin wields a sword and an axe. Rather plausible when you consider he usually uses the sword to deflect an enemy attack and use his axe to beheard them before they can recover.



* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Skarin is a Viking warrior who gained immortality from a Norse goddess.



* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: [[spoiler: After you kill Hel, Skarin is pissed off by Freya refusing to free him so he can earn entrance into Valhalla. So he invokes this trope, except it's more of the extremely uncomfortable variety as there is a very severe winter for quite some time, but it gets better. The Gods aren't so lucky.]]

Added DiffLines:

* OnlyInItForTheMoney: One of the Vikings' army that you can recruit is a band of mercenaries. When you start the quest to gain their support, their leader invokes this as the reason why they will join you. The quest to recruit them requires to ambush an enemy convoy, then bring them back the chest that the Legion was moving.
