Bad things come in twos. In video games you will often run into two villains who are inseparable and you will inevitably have to fight both of them at once.
An evil organization is a group of super-villans who are hell bent on world domination or something of a similar nature. Usually defeated by a single Spy/Superhero/Average Joe/small child.
Henchmen are the loyal grunts caught in between the player and the main antagonist. Without them every game would be nothing more than a boss battle.
An optional boss is a boss whose defeat is not essential to the plot and can be avoided. In some cases, they are stronger than the game's final boss.
An orphan is a child that has both of his/her natural parents absent from his/her upbringing. The absence could be from the parents' death, abandonement, or "accidental" disappearance.
Quests that aren't necessary for game completion. They typically offer side-stories or specific rewards.
