    Default Handy Mnemonic Devices

    So does anyone have any Mnemonic devices to remember rules in gaming. I have one for Remembering Sneak Attack immune enemies: COUPE.
    Construct
    Ooze
    Undead
    Plant
    Elemental

    I was wondering if other people have any. For any system

    Well, I have a problem with the letter D.
    Demons
    Devils
    Daemons
    [Ability] Damage
    [Ability] Drain
    [Energy] Drain

    Don't know if that counts, but it works.

    Be wary if your DM turns to the "D"s of the monster manual.

    How do you remember that fighting type is weak to flying type? Have you ever tried to punch a bird?

    If it's flying, I don't think you could, really.

    Oh wait. That's the point.

    But that should apply to Steel and Normal then. And fighting has aura sphere!

    It doesn't end well for the pelicans, I don't think.
