** [[Main/LordOfTheRings Durin’s Bane, the Balrog of Moria]], is only “defeated” by Roy and [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger Frog]] using their combined powers to slow him down while other members of the Legion of Light escape, and ''they'' only get out because a bunch of centaurs show up and cover them. And even then, they take high casualties and the balrog is virtually unscathed.

* ActorAllusion: a planned interaction between [[Fracnhise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Jack Sparrow]] and [[Main/TheLordOfTheRings Legolas]] is Jack commenting that Legolas [[Creator/OrlandoBloom seems very familiar]].

* CoolSword: most characters who use swords have one: [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda the Master Sword]], [[Videogame/FireEmblemAkaneia the Falchion]], [[Videogame/SoulSeries Xianghua’s sword No-Name]], [[TheLordOfTheRings Anduril]], and many others

* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Caranom’s native werewolves aren’t shapeshifters, but literal a case of a HalfHumanHybrid resulting from the union of Caranom’s sentient wolves and almost any of Caranom’s other native peoples, and quite simply look like the other race but with wolf-like features (including fur) and have a habit of going on all fours; [[Main/TheLordOfTheRings Sauron]] can also transform into one of Middle-earth's werewolves [[note]]in fact, it was his original form in Arda[[/note]], which is simply a huge, ferocious wolf rather than a wolfman.

* SchizoTech: mostly the result of new technologies being introduced from other dimensions: [[Franchise/TheDarkTower Roland Deschain]] is the first one to introduce firearms to Caranom, followed closely by [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Jack Sparrow]] and the crew of the ''Black Pearl'', the [[Manga/AttackOnTitan Survey Corps]] brings along their own gunpowder as well as their 3D Maneuver Gear and steel swords, the [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Royal Army of Hyrule]] brings bombs with them, and so on. The Army of Shadow is no less limited, what with master engineers [[TheLordOfTheRings Morgoth, Sauron, and Saruman]] on their side. [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Altair]] also has knowledge of futuristic technology (relevant to him) via the Apple of Eden that he can spread around if he so wishes.

* WarriorPrince: played straight with [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Marth]], [[Main/TheLordOfTheRings Legolas]], and some others, but subverted with Roy ([[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe no, not ''that'' Roy]]), who is actually the King of South Castle but continues using the title of Prince because he skipped out on his own coronation to chase his archenemy

* OnlyThePureOfHeart: only the pure and just can lay their hands on the Master Sword—everyone else gets zapped by it, and even then only Link can really ''use'' it. A planned future scene will involve Roy trying to get the sword back to a disarmed Link, only for it to electrocute him, [[RuleOfFunny and then he realizes]] [[AManIsNotAVirgin exactly why]].

* OutsideContextVillain: the entire premise is that a war breaks out in the land of Caranom between the [[DesignatedVillain Army of Shadow]] and [[DesignatedHero Legion of Light]]. Then the BigBad summons his equals from other dimensions and catches everyone off-guard. It’s then turned around on the Army when the leader of the Legion summons the heroes who fought those villains in their own worlds.

''Titan Rampage'', initially inspired by ''VideoGame/AgeOfMythology'', is a slightly less conventional RPG: unlike others, its setting is flexible to allow new countries to appear, though the general geography, environment, and the antagonistic Titans are predefined. The story follows original characters by the participants as the Titans are released from Hell and wreak havoc across the world, prompting the heroes to band together to stop them. ''Titan Rampage'' was originally started on Jurassic Park Legacy but quickly died, and involved Titans based on those appearing the ''Age of Mythology'' and in Disney's ''Hercules'' as well as some uncreative original ones. The second and current iteration features ''Age of Mythology'' and ''Hercules'' Titans as well as many more based on enemies from ''ShadowOfTheColossus'', [[WhatMayHaveBeen including ones that never made it to the final game]].

''Prehistoric Park'', based on [[Main/PrehistoricPark the television series]], follows the staff of the eponymous park as they not only travel into prehistory via time portal but also care for the animals in the present-day setting. In addition to the hazards of caring for dinosaurs, the park has occasionally come under threat by [[EvilPoacher wildlife smugglers]]. ''Prehistoric Park'' was originally started on Jurassic Park Legacy but eventually moved to/was restarted on Rplegacy. It is currently in its fifth iteration.
