• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Tropes used in Overlord: Raising Hell include:
  • Big Bad: The Forgotten God.
  • Bittersweet Ending: The Overlord successfully saves the world from the Forgotten God but is separated from his mistress Rose and his unborn son. All of his accomplishments will also be undone by the Glorious Empire's Emperor.
  • Broke Your Arm Punching Out Cthulhu: Sort of. The Forgotten God is a Load-Bearing Boss. When you kill him he destroys the portal leading out of Hell.
  • Cutting Off the Branches: The game assumes that the Overlord took the Path of least corruption and that he chose Rose as his mistress.
  • The Devil: The Forgotten God is essentially Satan. Then you kill him and take over hell.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: At the end you kill the Forgotten God.
  • Expansion Pack
  • Hijacked by Jesus: The game's backstory is actually hijacked from Wicca with the Consort turned into Satan. A sort of oddball metamoment that may pass audiences by.
  • Infinity+1 Sword: Five of them, one for each category: Armour, helmet, sword, axe and mace.
  • Ironic Hell: All of the Abyss-levels are ironic hells, targeted at the races in general, and the heroes you killed in particular. So the Gluttonous Halflings ends up in a hell of exploding sheep and killer pumpkins, the lecherous Paladin ends up in Lady Land, etc.
  • Karmic Death: Subverted. The Overlord's death actually makes him ruler of Hell.
  • The Legions of Hell: In the Raising Hell expansion, you fight them, slay their god, and get stuck in Hell. As their ruler, thankfully.
  • Like a Badass Out of Hell: Upon defeating the Bonus Boss of the Infernal Abyss, the denizens of that fiery pit swears allegiance to you - you have successfully taken over hell! Which is probably a good thing, considering that you're STUCK there.
  • No Name Given: We never do learn the Forgotten God's name, which kinda is the point since Mother Goddess cursed him so that no-one could remember him, thus removing source of power.
  • Planet Heck: The expansion adds several "Abyss" levels for you to explore and conquer, including a Bonus Boss at the end.
  • Schmuck Bait: Every realm in Overlord let's you kill sheep and smash containers without restraint. Try that in the Abyss, why don't you?
