to:

* BigBadBigBad: Of the original trilogy.



* DarkActionGirl
* {{Determinator}}

to:

* DarkActionGirl
DarkActionGirl: She is the locust Queen, and a prime example of AuthorityEqualsAsskicking
* {{Determinator}}{{Determinator}}: She's a monsterous piece of work, but she will never give up.



* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen
* {{Hypocrite}}: ''Oh yeah.'' She postures that the humans of Sera are a bloodthirsty, warmongering race. While she certainly has a point, she refuses to even ''approach'' them for help, opting instead to act like a genocidal maniac and launch a surprise offensive against humanity, exterminating a fourth of their total population over the course of a single day and waging a fifteen year campaign with the stated intent of wiping out the rest.

to:

* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen
GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: While she puts up the facade of a motherly authority figure for her locusts, she's not afraid to sentence them to death for their failures. She also sacrifices hordes of them, just for the sake of victory.

Added DiffLines:

* KillAllHumans: This seems to be the only reason for their species' existence. No matter how much territory or resources they acquire, every breath they take is dedicated solely to destroying the human race. This mentality seemed to arise when they invaded Sera to escape from [[TheVirus the Lambent]]. Not believing that humanity could be trusted to be allies with them, they felt that an InevitableMutualBetrayal would happen and decide to commit genocide against their potential enemies. They seem to treat their actions as a case of DoUntoOthersBeforeTheyDoUntoUs.

* AntiFrustrationFeature: Under normal circumstances, the standard melee attack is replaced by the chainsaw bayonet when the Lancer is equipped. However, pressing the B button in front of a Ticker while holding the Lancer will make the player character do a kick attack instead of rev the chainsaw.




to:

* ViolationOfCommonSense: Despite being walking land mines, punching or kicking a Ticker will ''not'' cause it to explode in one's face. Instead, the Ticker will be sent flying, landing too far away to hurt the player when it explodes. If the player doesn't take the opportunity to kill the Ticker at this point, it will remain disoriented, moving around aimlessly rather than seeking out players to attack.

* HandicappedBadass: The Scion Buzzkills have crystals over their right eyes that would seemingly obscure their sight. This condition doesn't make them any less dangerous than the other Scions.

* HandicappedBadass: The Scion Buzzkills have crystals over their right eyes that would seemingly obscure their sight. This condition doesn't make them any less dangerous than the other Scions. Although when your weapon spams dozens of {{Pinball Projectile}}s everywhere, you don't really ''need'' good eyesight.



* ShootTheMedicFirst: While they are incapable of ''healing'' Swarm troops per se, the Scion Buzzkills ( whose models are referred to as the "Scion Elite" in the multiplayer interface, possibly explaining this power) are able to perform a StatusBuff stance and strengthen regular Swarm troops. Any drone within their range TurnsRed and deals increased damage and can take more damage in return. This buff will remain active until the Scion is killed, so this trope still applies to them.

* CallASmeerpARabbit: Despite their name and hive societal structure, they're very clearly not insects. In fact, the only reason they were called Locust was because humanity knows nothing about them and the amount of death and destruction they cause can only be associated with some type of plague. Summed up nice,y with the following quote from an anonymous scientist who first named them.

-> "We can't stop them. We don't know where they come from. We don't know what they want. They don't even seem to want territory. All they do is kill. We can't even begin to negotiate with them, or work out their objectives, because we just don't know the first damn thing about them. That's not an enemy, Mr. Chairman. That's a monster."
