* ElvesAreBetter: Magic, he says. [[spoiler: He's actually an "elf poser," a human who uses surgery and body mods to look like an elf. He begs you not to give him up if you figure it out, since he thinks his "mystical elf" schtick is important for sales.]]



* BigBad: Subverted. You'd think she was preparing for her return and 'disappeared' Dr. Vauclair for revenge. It's the other way around.

* FallenHero: He masterminded the defeat of Feuerschwinge, saving Berlin and the rest of the world from her wrath. And then in the aftermath, he sought to remove all dragons from the world, becoming just as ruthless as murderous as them in the process.

* RedemptionEqualsDeath: If the PC reads the journal pieces in his secret lab and watch [=DVDs=] in the safehouse, they are able to convince Vauclair to drop his plans. However, another Big Bad would step up to take his place by shooting him.

* GlamourFailure: If the player decides to free APEX, it's "Monika" persona becomes increasingly "hungry" as it's control programs are taken offline. When they are removed entirely, the "Monika" persona is discarded and APEX addresses you with the avatar seen to the right. By contrast, if the player decides to delete APEX, it shows its true form immediately after you tell it so but [[PlayerPunch it impersonates Monika flawlessly as it dies.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EveryoneHasStandards: If, at the end of ''Dragonfall'', you tell him that you would never [[spoiler: release the virus]] because you think genocide is morally wrong, he comments on his surprise at hearing a morality-based motivation from a murderer and a thief, before saying that that instinctive revulsion towards the idea of killing a whole group of beings is a good one, and may save humanity just as it saved dragonkind.

** In the Director's Cut, ''you'' can become this to her in the epilogue if, having taken the "good" ending in her personal quest, [[spoiler: you refuse to let her chase after and bring down Harrow on her own despite her insistence that it is very important for her to find peace. She will begin to feel that you were never interested in her well-being, but rather were manipulating her for your own selfish reasons, just like Harrow.]]

* AntiHero: In true ''Shadowrun'' fashion. They're all criminals with sketchy pasts who will ShootTheDog many times over the course of the campaign...but they're the best hope for saving the Kreuzbasar and Berlin.

* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Glory and Eiger are definitely the more [[TheBigGuy combat-oriented]] party members and have cold and/or stern personalities, while Dietrich and Blitz are a lot more laid-back and light-hearted and fill in [[SupportPartyMember support]] and [[UtilityPartyMember utility]] roles.
