- Cliché Storm: It's almost as if the lack of surprising plot twists is a surprising plot twist in and of itself. Of course, it's not as if the plot really matters anyway.
- Nightmare Fuel:
- Xiphos' Figure of Hate attack, first off, Xiphos becomes dark red and grey, which makes him looks like he's covered in blood, not to mention the imagery and Scare Chord after the attack is finished.
- Getting Swallowed Whole by the three-headed dragons, which is an instant kill, if you aren't fast enough.
