  • Improbable Weapon User: Francine attacks with pancakes.
  • Kid Hero: Marvin, implied by one NPC's dialogue:

  • Kill Enemies to Open: In the sequel, the room in the cave at the far bottom right of the "Windmill at the End" has a door at its top that needs the death of all the monsters inside to unlock it.
  • Killer Rabbit: Small, harmless-looking purple rabbits can damage you.
  • Lame Comeback:
    Marvin: Hey, townsman! I'm seeking fame and fortune!

  • Shout-Out:
    • The spiked blocks in various fortresses are very similar to Thwomps from the Mario series.
    • The description of your sword:
    It's your sword! Every adventurer needs one. Only wimpy ones use whips instead.
