The setting is a fictional world, where animals and human-animal hybrids reign supreme, and humans are considered second-class citizens.

Meet the ''World Annihilation Front'' (''World Destruction Committee'' in Japan and in Funimation's subtitled version). A human member of the Front is the main 'heroine', Morte Asherah, who has a nasty attitude, a massive sword and a goal of (what else) to destroy the world with the powers of something known as the "Destruct". Along the way, she picks up Kyrie Illunis, a mild-mannered human with the power to destroy the world, but has no desire to do so, and Taupy Toplan, a small bear creature on the scale of a teddy. (Just don't call him "bear.") Kyrie and Taupy, unlike Morte, have no desire to destroy the world, but they are guilty by association and hunted as part of the collective "World Annihilation Front."

The World Salvation Committee consists of one highly intellectual (but not necessarily intelligent) wolfman with an intense sense of [[HonorBeforeReason honor]] and one dragon girl who is [[{{Tsundere}} prone to spouting wings, horns, and a nasty-looking tail when she becomes enraged]]. Finally there is the guy in an awesome green longcoat.

This series has a [[Characters/SandsofDestruction Character Sheet]] right here. Read at your own risk for spoilers for those who haven't watch the anime, read the manga or played the game.

(Now has its own [[AbridgedSeries Abridged Series]]! Brought to you by [[http://www.youtube.com/user/WorldParodyCommittee The World Parody Committee]].)
----
!!This game provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: Morte is the only member of the Front who seems to ''enjoy'' fighting.
* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler: Lacertus Rex, despite being a CompleteMonster.]]
* AlternateTimeline: As Kyrie began researching the Destruct Code's history, he noted how it extends to the beginning of creation, when the gods were given a choice: either to allow humans to rule over beasts, or vice versa. The gods for that world gave that power to beasts, which gives [[HumansAreBastards an interesting perspective flip]] [[FridgeHorror when you think about it]].
* AmbitionIsEvil: Subverted. Despite Pictis Rex's motive to hold the peace talks, he was actually very reasonable, and he would have helped end the conflicts between Beastmen and humans peacefully. Unfortunately, someone else had other ideas...
* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: A weird case where the hardcore ''was too much'' for the demographic. If they kept the hardcore, it would have kept the general theme of the game. Why they didn't keep the hardcore for the ''American'' release is anyone's guess. See ExecutiveMeddling for details.
* AnyoneCanDie: Up to and including [[spoiler: Kyrie. [[IGotBetter He gets better.]]]]
* ArcWords: ''Acta est fabula''
* ArtShift: The anime can get weird in some episodes, such as when Morte decides to throw Toppy at the warden in the third episode, it's shown in extremely minimalistic line art. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotAwesome And it is awesome]].
* AxCrazy: The first lines out of Morte's mouth are about killing people and blowing up the world...so naturally, [[IdiotHero the protagonist]] finds this really hot. [[spoiler: Of course, Kyrie actually has a reason for agreeing with her, even if he doesn't know it.]]
* BadassAdorable: Taupy. He can (and will, if the price is right) kick your ass up and down the street with his [[IncrediblyLamePun bear hands]], but just try resisting the urge to hug him.
* BadassLongcoat: Agan WISHES he was one of these. Well, at least he's got a NiceHat.
* BlackAndGreyMorality: Sure, some of the beastlords (Keyword some. Felis and Ursa Rex are all nice. Elephas Rex is also shown not to be that crazy, Pistris Rex just wants a better spot on the council) are downright evil, but the party is trying to ''destroy the world.'' [[spoiler: They even wind up fighting ''God.'' Granted, said god is trying to get Kyrie to destroy the world, while Kyrie just wants to make a new one, but still.]]
* BlessedWithSuck: Kyrie has the power to turn everything (yes, ''everything'') in a large area into sand.
* BoyMeetsGirl: Kyrie and Morte, of sorts, when he first meets her in the Sky Gaol. She doesn't feel the same way he does for her at first... [[spoiler: until he dies. Then he got better.]] In the ending, [[spoiler: when they remake the world into a better place, the two share a kiss, and recite the words that creates the new world. The last scene shows the two of them side-by-side looking out at the blue ocean, with the delightful heart emotes over both their heads.]]
* CatchPhrase: These are an actual gameplay feature. As you progress through the game, each playable character gains "Quips", which they can equip up to four of at a time. When a Quip is triggered (by things like taking damage, killing an enemy, or even just starting a battle), they provide a bonus of some sort to your characters.
* CloudCuckooLander: Rhi'a, at times.
* DeathbringerTheAdorable: The World Annihilation Front members are actually pretty affable folks for the most part, and apart from a few alarmists, most of the folks they encounter along the way don't have any problem with helping them even knowing who they are.
* DeathWorld: The game goes to great lengths to show just how fucked up everything is, and why the World Annihilation Front feels so justified in their goals.
* DeusExMachina [[spoiler: When exactly did Kyrie get that SuperMode? It's implied that Crimson Sun merged with him when he was resurrected but isn't said outright and it only when a player goes to customize his moves or enters battle to an awesome new battle theme.]]
** [[spoiler: He got it when you resurrected him and he accepted his identity as the Destruct. Notice that in his profile, his race changes from 'Human' to 'Destruct' to reflect this.]]
** [[spoiler: Also quite literal with The Creator, which appears to be a machine.]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: Porcus Rex attempts to eat a child just because he ran into him.
* DoomedHometown: A variation of it happened to Barni, Kyrie's home village. The awakening of his Destruct power turned almost everything, including people, to sand.
* ElementalEmbodiment: The four Primals.
* EverythingsWorseWithBears: Subverted. Taupy is one of the strongest characters.
** Which, really, just means that the trope applies to your opponents.
* ExecutiveMeddling: The original story draft by writer MasatoKato (also responsible for [[ChronoTrigger the]] [[RadicalDreamers Chrono]] [[ChronoCross series]], {{Xenogears}} and BatenKaitos) was allegedly much darker in tone, but the higher-ups insisted that the game be marketed to a younger audience, resulting in the game's bizarre case of MoodWhiplash.
** To paraphrase a forum poster from GameFAQs, if it weren't for the meddling, "The developers could have made ''Xenogears'' but instead gave us ''WildArms''."
* FacialCompositeFailure: The bounty posters of your group are naturally exaggerated caricatures, and seemingly can't even decide on what they want to caricature.
* FantasticRacism: [[{{Deconstruction}} Ridiculously straight]] with ferals to humans. Unfortunately, it's the a kind of {{Narm}}y, cartoon-characterish racism instead of something a little more subtle. Probably a definite sign that the game you're playing wasn't intended for adults.
** Exceptions going to Rana Rex right? Working children to death then using them as fertilizer is not cool.
** And even though it's Morte's primary motivation for wanting to destroy the world, for every city where humans are openly bullied, it seems like there's another where they live more or less as equals. Morte's hometown even has a human chief with a laid-back feral population.
*** In the anime, at least. In the game, Morte just seems to want to destroy the world for the sake of it. The crappiness of it is just her best argument.
* FastballSpecial: Taupy's special finishing move was summoning Muffy, being picked up, spin for momentum and ''thrown'' at the enemies.
* FlatCharacter: There's a reason she's called Morte. [[spoiler: Lampshaded near the end. All the other characters are forced to undergo a flashback which tells their reason to go against the world, and she complains that nothing is happening to her.]]
* FiringOneHanded: Rhi'a in the opening movie.
* FiveManBand
** TheHero: Kyrie
** TheLancer: Morte/Taupy
** TheSmartGuy: Agan (or at least the rational guy)
** TheBigGuy: Taupy, despite being an adorable teddy bear-like feral.
** TheChick: Rhi'a
** TheSixthRanger: Naja
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Serpens Rex. She pops up in the middle of the [[strike: desert]] sandsea, traps you in a literal MirrorUniverse, scatters the party, [[spoiler: then hypnotizes Morte into fighting you.]]
* AGodAmI: [[spoiler: Lacertus Rex tries to pull this off.]]
* GoingThroughTheMotions: Every time a character speaks, he/she display one gesture specific to him/herself, such as Agan fixing his hat or Rhi'a rocking back and forth on her heels. Every. Single. Time.
* GoryDeadlyOverkillTitleOfFatalDeath
* GoryDiscretionShot: [[spoiler: When Morte kills Rajiv, the camera follows the rest of the party while they leave the room. It's implied that she took her time.]]
** Semi-averted when [[spoiler: Naja kills Kyrie. We see the silhouette, but Naja's claw is quite clearly going through Kyrie's chest.]]
* GratuitousLatin: It's everywhere in this game. The ArcWords are Latin for "the play is over." Nearly all of the Beastlords' titles combine the latin words for their species followed by Rex (King). Even the last boss spouts several lines in latin before finally dying.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Naja from the Salvation Committee. Despite being a reasonable person, some of his colleagues doesn't exactly refrain from showing their racism in regards to his parentage.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Naja. ''After'' he kills TheHero.]]
* HonorableElephant: Hospital administrator Elephas Rex refuses to turn away patients. [[spoiler:It's because he's TheAtoner.]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: [[GenderInvertedTrope Gender inverted]] by Taupy and Muffy.
** Taupy's a gruff, one-eyed, no-nonsense bounty hunter who looks like [[BadassAdorable an adorable teddy bear less than half as tall as most of the rest of the cast.]] Muffy also looks like an adorable teddy bear, albeit one that is at least twenty feet tall.
* ImAHumanitarian: In the original version, before the [[ExecutiveMeddling executives told the writers to tone it down]], the beastmen didn't just rule over humans, they ''ate'' them.
* KnifeNut: Kyrie
* LarynxDissonance: Taupy, as mentioned above, is an adorable teddy bear-like feral...with a gruff, badass voice.
* LethalChef: Kyrie's special skills involve the use of food to attack. But also to heal.
* LuckBasedMission: What battles inevitably turn into, thanks to the combat system's method of giving you or your enemies another attack based on getting a critical hit. You can steamroll a boss in one playthrough, or just never get a turn in another.
** This isn't the case if you activate the GameBreaker [[MagikarpPower powers]] from flurry attacks though.
* MagikarpPower: Flurry attacks are rather weak (though accurate) at the beginning of the game when compared to blow attacks (more damage and less accurate, but this can easily be compensated for) however, once you reach lvl 20 (which isn't very further into the game, even without grinding, which is also fairly easy to do) you get the option of further improving all your attacks, giving them certain bonuses when doing so. Blow attacks can get some decent powerups from this, but flurry attacks get the option to chain which is more or less a GameBreaker.
* MeaningfulName: Kyrie means 'Lord' in Greek, Morte means 'Death'.
* MilhollandRelationshipMoment: [[spoiler: Muffy knew all along.]]
* MirrorUniverse: Literally, in the case of Serpens Rex's crazy mirror dimension.
* MoodWhiplash: On paper, the story looks like pretty serious stuff, and the original draft by writer Masato Kato was apparently even darker and more violent. As it turns out, [[ExecutiveMeddling the higher-ups]] insisted on marketing the game to a [[LighterAndSofter younger demographic]], and so they settled on the worst solution possible: keep the same basic story points, but pack each and every scene with lame, anime-cliche humor and have the game's position on the SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness go haywire.
* MoreDakka: Rhi'a if you chain her Flurry attacks, and Agan's Special Attack.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Morte Asherah, in account that "Morte" is the Portuguese word for "Death".
* NinjaZombiePirateRobot: Taupy is a teddybear-sized bear with a gruff voice, a bandanna and an eyepatch who fights enemies with martial arts.
* OneWingedAngel: All the beastlords pull this (the ones you fight, anyway).
** [[spoiler: [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere The Creator]] does this after you defeat her human form.]]
* PersonOfMassDestruction
* PettingZooPeople: Subverted in that most ferals look human. Played straight with the beastlords, as well as Crimson Sun (who is technically the [[ElementalEmbodiment embodiment]] of Light/Fire, but come on, he's a giant lion-man.)
** However, it's implied that they do have a transformation form. (not ''just'' the beastlords, mind you)
* RandomEncounters
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: As far as Beastlords go, Ursa Rex was evidently a fair and just ruler, who had [[FantasticRacism no problem with humans.]]
* [[spoiler:RedHeadedHero]]: [[spoiler:This is Kyrie's battle form after he is resurrected.]]
* TheSavageSouth: Summer Continent appears to be an {{expy}} of Africa, complete with deserts and savannah. The biggest sign of civilization is the complex operated by Elephas Rex, and travellers who fail to take precautions usually collapse from heat exhaustion before they reach it.
* SlidingScaleOfAntagonistVileness: The beastlords. We have [[HeroAntagonist Elephas Rex]] on one end, who will treat any and all patients who come to him, including [[spoiler: Morte]], down through Felis Rex, who is a nice guy, but still blackmails you into running errands for him, to Noctua Rex, [[spoiler: who traps you in your memories and tries to kill you, but is trying to save the world]], to the {{Jerkass}} Aqulia Rex down to Porcus Rex and Rana Rex, who eat random humans and use humans for fertilizer, respectively, and finally we have [[spoiler: Lacertus Rex, who wants to use all of humanity as raw material for a new world where he is God.]]
* ScrewDestiny: Kyrie does not want to destroy the world. [[spoiler: Just remake it into a better one.]]
* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''{{Xenogears}}''. Shares numerous staff members and some story and gameplay elements in common.
* SpritePolygonMix: Intentionally invoked to make the game resemble ''{{Xenogears}}'', as it was developed by the same people.
* StandardStatusEffects: Namely, Poison and Paralyze (Stun).
* SuspiciousVideogameGenerosity: Any healing points found inside the dungeon, after the party has traveled deep enough. Suspicious enough, due to the game allowing you to save anywhere.
* TheDulcineaEffect: See all that stuff in AngstWhatAngst? Don't let it happen to you, or you might wipe all your friends off the map.
* TheGunslinger: Rhi'a.
* TookALevelInBadass: Kyrie, [[spoiler:after being [[IGotBetter resurrected]], in combat anyways. He's still a whiny bitch otherwise.]]
** [[CharacterDevelopment A more confident somewhat less whiny bitch]], [[spoiler: whose (rather hilarious) reaction to an order to destroy the world is a flat "No" which leaves The Creator speechless.]]
* TransformationSequence: All the beastlords before battle, as well as Rajiv's, Naja's, and Rhi'a's Special Attacks. [[spoiler: And Kyrie at the start of each fight, after his awakening as the Destruct.]]
* VerbalTic: Taupy puts "bear-o" at the end of his sentences in the anime. When asked by Kyrie and Morte to stop, he says that he can't do it because it's an important part of his tribe's culture.
** In the FUNimation English dub of the anime "Toppy" (as they spelled it in the credits) ends nearly all of his sentences with "kuma" which is the Japanese for "bear." At one point in the anime, you meet a friend of his (also a dwarf-bear) who ends all of his sentences with simply "bear."
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Morte, a member of the World Annihilation Front, intends to "destroy this meaningless world."
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: As mentioned above, the original draft was much more darker, with possible depictions of ferals eating humans. Alas, {{executive meddling}} made the game's finalised story as it is. Well, there's hints like the time where Porco Rex threatens to eat that human child, but it's not quite the same. [[spoiler: There is also Lacertus Rex's plan to use humans as base material for his ascension to godhood.]]
* WhipItGood: Agan
* {{Wide Eyed Extremist}}: Kyrie would fit it the most since.
* XanatosGambit: [[spoiler: Lacertus Rex has one going. He runs the World Annihilation Front so he can gain power over the Destruct and [[AGodAmI become the creator of a new world.]]]]
** [[spoiler: This backfire spectacularly when Morte pulls a YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness on him.]]

!!Additionally, ''World Destruction: Sekai Bokumetsu no Rokunin'' contains examples of:
* ActionGirl: Morte and Rhi'a fall under this category. They fight rather often, too.
* {{Action Girlfriend}}: Morte is like this toward Kyrie. Of course Kyrie can't hold his own in battle.
* ActionSurvivor: Kyrie was just happy to finally have a job when he was caught up with the World Annihilation Front.
* AxCrazy: Rhi'a seems fairly calm and cool, but once you piss her off, she sprouts horns, wings, and a wicked tail and tries to kill your face.
* CatchPhrase: Toppi repeatedly says "There are two kinds of *blank*". Kyrie eventually parodies it, causing Toppi to say that there aren't two kinds of that.
* ChekhovsGunman: That guy that appears near the end of the trailer (after the beastlords)? [[BlatantLies Totally unimportant]].
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:Awakened Kyrie]] versus the entire World Salvation Committee and the Eagle Master.
* CuteMachines: The sentient robots in the anime have a very unassuming demeanor.
* CutenessProximity: Whenever he's in sight of a little kid, Toppy with undoubtedly become a victim of this.
* {{Distressed Dude}}: Kyrie. First episode, he gets drugged and is going to be the sacrifice of the village if not for Morte and Toppi saving him.
** Every other episode he tries his best to prevent this, but every other episode results in him being captured ALONG with Morte and Toppi. However, its to be noted that whenever Morte or Toppi get captured with him, it's always Kyrie's fault because he gets held as a hostage or gets knocked out first.
* EyePatchOfPower: Taupy and Yappi. Not so much that it gives them power, but that they're ridiculously bad ass.
* FacelessMooks: The World Salvation Committee's soldiers all wear white and blue uniforms with bird-like, white masks that conceal their eyes.
* FantasticRacism: A big plot point in the story.
* FridgeLogic: Sand somehow works like water. You can drop things in it and they'll float away, you're in danger of drowning if you fall into the Sand Sea...
* GangstaStyle: Rhi'a occasionally combines this with GunsAkimbo.
* {{Gonk}}: Fake Kyrie's kinda... ugly.
* GunFu: Rhi'a in the opening.
* GunsAkimbo: Rhi'a wields dual pistols in the anime.
* {{Hey Its that voice}}: Let's see now: Morte (Maaya Sakamoto), Kyrie (Mamoru Miyano), Taupy (Tohru Furuya), Yappi (Shūichi Ikeda), Naja (Daisuke Ono), Rhi'a (Yuu Kobayashi), the fake Kyrie (Keiji Fujiwara)
** In the dub, Kyrie is [[{{Baccano}} Firo]], [[DGrayMan Allen Walker]], [[SoulEater Death the Kid]] and [[{{xxxHolic}} Kimihiro Watanuki.]]
* HeroAntagonist: The World Salvation Committee.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Each episode title begins with "There are *insert number* kinds of *insert episode subject*".
* MagicSkirt: Considering how often Morte jumps around, you think you'd see up her skirt. You don't except for perhaps during the opening of the anime.
** Subverted in one episode where it steadily rips open higher and higher. Morte isn't happy when she finds out.
* {{Non Action Guy}}: Kyrie definitely. The other male members Agan and Naja rarely fight but they had at least one instant where they can knock the villains out of the way whereas Kyrie just whines the entire time.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: Toppy gives Kyrie mouth-to-mouth after he nearly drowns in sand in episode 8. The standard confusion happens.
* OddlySmallOrganization: The World Destruction Committee consists of three people, total. Though it is hinted that the World Salvation Committee actually started to believe their own propaganda, and began referring to the three protagonists as "Three members ''OF'' the World Destruction Committee".
** The game has the World Destruction Committee being less than ten people in number.
* OmnicidalManiac: Morte does want to ''destroy the world''. [[spoiler:Then averted at the moment of truth, when she decides the world isn't so bad after all.]]
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler: Rhi'a/Lia is actually about 300 years old. Kyrie has been alive since the creation of the world]].
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Subverted in the case of [[spoiler: Elephas Rex]].
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Taupy counts. Kinda.
** Much to his dismay.
* RobotBuddy: 28 functioned as this for Taupy in one episode.
* ShoutOut: Taupy played by Furuya Tooru meets Yappi in Episode 5. Who is played by Shūichi Ikeda. These two play rivals in the original MobileSuitGundam anime as Amuro Ray and Char Aznable. Coincidence? I think not.
** Taupy also pulls the line 'Ore wa dare to omotteiru' from TengenToppaGurrenLagann
*** That line has been in anime and manga (and I imagine other forms of Japanese media) forever, so that may just be a coincidence (if not necessarily the above).
* SpellMyNameWithAnS/[[InconsistentDub Inconsistent Translation]]: Both the fansubs, and the official translation by Funimation spell the character names differently from the English version of the game, resulting in what could now be called "[[MegaManNTWarrior Mega Man]] syndrome". Examples from the fansubs include Morute/Morte, and Kirie/Kyrie. Examples from the Funimation version include (but may not be limited to) Urshela/Ashera (Morte's last name), Illnis/Illunis (Kyrie's last name), Toppy/Taupy, Nadja/Naja, and Lia/Rhi'a. In addition, there are two different "official" translations for "Sekai Bokumetsu Iinkai" (世界撲滅委員会). Sega calls it the "World Annihilation Front", while Funimation calls it the "World Destruction Committee". The former name is technically a {{Woolseyism}} (or a {{Macekre}}, [[YourMileageMayVary depending on who you ask]]), while the latter name is truer to the original Japanese. Keep in mind that it was a video game to begin with.
* TeamChef: Kyrie is a damn good chef, despite all appearances.
* TeamMom: Kyrie, despite being useless battle-wise, is fairly domestic.
* TheAnimeOfTheGame: Quite a good one, too.
* ThemeNaming: The titles typically start with 'There two kinds of (insert thing here)'.
* ThereAreTwoKindsOfPeopleInTheWorld: This is part of the IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming of the anime.
* TriggerHappy: Rhi'a. She reaches for her guns whenever she's provoked.
* {{Tsundere}}: Because Morte isn't {{Ax Crazy}} as she is in the video game or manga, she would fit this troupe more. Type A around everyone.
** Morte is more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold; she doesn't have any love interests (note that when she thinks Kyrie is propositioning her, she just gets mad). Rhi'a is a better example, and is type A towards Kyrie.
* VerbalTic: Taupy ends most of his sentences with the word 'kuma'. His rival Yappi ends his sentences with the word 'bear'.
* VillainProtagonist: The three members of the World Annihilation Front, though Kyrie and Toppi are just along for the ride.
** Its worth noting that this a rare case where the "villainous" protagonists are ''absolutely right''. Yes, they want to destroy the world, but its made clear throughout the game that its such a horrifyingly bleak DeathWorld that destruction [[spoiler:or recreation]] really ''is'' the best option.
* WhiteHairedPrettyBoy: Naja.
* WingedHumanoid: Rhi'a gets wings during her dragon transformation sequence.
* YasunoriMitsuda: Composed part of the music.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Rhi'a definitely counts. Morte not so much since she wears thigh-high boots.

The setting is a fictional world, where animals and human-animal hybrids reign supreme, and humans are considered second-class citizens.

Meet the ''World Annihilation Front'' (''World Destruction Committee'' in Japan and in Funimation's subtitled version). A human member of the Front is the main 'heroine', Morte Asherah, who has a nasty attitude, a massive sword and a goal of (what else) to destroy the world with the powers of something known as the "Destruct". Along the way, she picks up Kyrie Illunis, a mild-mannered human with the power to destroy the world, but has no desire to do so, and Taupy Toplan, a small bear creature on the scale of a teddy. (Just don't call him "bear.") Kyrie and Taupy, unlike Morte, have no desire to destroy the world, but they are guilty by association and hunted as part of the collective "World Annihilation Front."

The World Salvation Committee consists of one highly intellectual (but not necessarily intelligent) wolfman with an intense sense of [[HonorBeforeReason honor]] and one dragon girl who is [[{{Tsundere}} prone to spouting wings, horns, and a nasty-looking tail when she becomes enraged]].

* BlessedWithSuck: Kyrie has the power to turn everything (yes, ''everything'') in a large area into sand.
* BoyMeetsGirl: Kyrie and Morte, of sorts, when he first meets her in the Sky Gaol. She doesn't feel the same way he does for her at first... [[spoiler: until he dies. Then he got better.]] In the ending, [[spoiler: when they remake the world into a better place, the two share a kiss, and recite the words that creates the new world. The last scene shows the two of them side-by-side looking out at the blue ocean, with the delightful heart emotes over both their heads.]]
* CatchPhrase: These are an actual gameplay feature. As you progress through the game, each playable character gains "Quips", which they can equip up to four of at a time. When a Quip is triggered (by things like taking damage, killing an enemy, or even just starting a battle), they provide a bonus of some sort to your characters.
* CloudCuckooLander: Rhi'a, at times.
* DeathbringerTheAdorable: The World Annihilation Front members are actually pretty affable folks for the most part, and apart from a few alarmists, most of the folks they encounter along the way don't have any problem with helping them even knowing who they are.
* DeathWorld: The game goes to great lengths to show just how fucked up everything is, and why the World Annihilation Front feels so justified in their goals.
* DeusExMachina [[spoiler: When exactly did Kyrie get that SuperMode? It's implied that Crimson Sun merged with him when he was resurrected but isn't said outright and it only when a player goes to customize his moves or enters battle to an awesome new battle theme.]]
** [[spoiler: He got it when you resurrected him and he accepted his identity as the Destruct. Notice that in his profile, his race changes from 'Human' to 'Destruct' to reflect this.]]
** [[spoiler: Also quite literal with The Creator, which appears to be a machine.]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: Porcus Rex attempts to eat a child just because he ran into him.
* DoomedHometown: A variation of it happened to Barni, Kyrie's home village. The awakening of his Destruct power turned almost everything, including people, to sand.
* ElementalEmbodiment: The four Primals.
* EverythingsWorseWithBears: Subverted. Taupy is one of the strongest characters.
** Which, really, just means that the trope applies to your opponents.
* ExecutiveMeddling: The original story draft by writer MasatoKato (also responsible for [[ChronoTrigger the]] [[RadicalDreamers Chrono]] [[ChronoCross series]], {{Xenogears}} and BatenKaitos) was allegedly much darker in tone, but the higher-ups insisted that the game be marketed to a younger audience, resulting in the game's bizarre case of MoodWhiplash.
** To paraphrase a forum poster from GameFAQs, if it weren't for the meddling, "The developers could have made ''Xenogears'' but instead gave us ''WildArms''."
* FacialCompositeFailure: The bounty posters of your group are naturally exaggerated caricatures, and seemingly can't even decide on what they want to caricature.
* FantasticRacism: [[{{Deconstruction}} Ridiculously straight]] with ferals to humans. Unfortunately, it's the a kind of {{Narm}}y, cartoon-characterish racism instead of something a little more subtle. Probably a definite sign that the game
you're playing wasn't intended for adults.
** Exceptions going to Rana Rex right? Working children to death then using them as fertilizer is not cool.
** And even though it's Morte's primary motivation for wanting to destroy the world, for every city where humans are openly bullied, it seems like there's another where they live more or less as equals. Morte's hometown even has a human chief with a laid-back feral population.
*** In the anime, at least. In the game, Morte just seems to want to destroy the world
looking for the sake of it. The crappiness of it is just her best argument.
* FastballSpecial: Taupy's special finishing move was summoning Muffy, being picked up, spin for momentum and ''thrown'' at the enemies.
* FlatCharacter: There's a reason she's called Morte. [[spoiler: Lampshaded near the end. All the other characters are forced to undergo a flashback which tells their reason to go against the world, and she complains that nothing is happening to her.]]
* FiringOneHanded: Rhi'a in the opening movie.
* FiveManBand
** TheHero: Kyrie
** TheLancer: Morte/Taupy
** TheSmartGuy: Agan (or at least the rational guy)
** TheBigGuy: Taupy, despite being an adorable teddy bear-like feral.
** TheChick: Rhi'a
** TheSixthRanger: Naja
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Serpens Rex. She pops up in the middle of the [[strike: desert]] sandsea, traps you in a literal MirrorUniverse, scatters the party, [[spoiler: then hypnotizes Morte into fighting you.]]
* AGodAmI: [[spoiler: Lacertus Rex tries to pull this off.]]
* GoingThroughTheMotions: Every time a character speaks, he/she display one gesture specific to him/herself, such as Agan fixing his hat or Rhi'a rocking back and forth on her heels. Every. Single. Time.
* GoryDeadlyOverkillTitleOfFatalDeath
* GoryDiscretionShot: [[spoiler: When Morte kills Rajiv, the camera follows the rest of the party while they leave the room. It's implied that she took her time.]]
** Semi-averted when [[spoiler: Naja kills Kyrie. We see the silhouette, but Naja's claw is quite clearly going through Kyrie's chest.]]
* GratuitousLatin: It's everywhere in this game. The ArcWords are Latin for "the play is over." Nearly all of the Beastlords' titles combine the latin words for their species followed by Rex (King). Even the last boss spouts several lines in latin before finally dying.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Naja from the Salvation Committee. Despite being a reasonable person, some of his colleagues doesn't exactly refrain from showing their racism in regards to his parentage.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Naja. ''After'' he kills TheHero.]]
* HonorableElephant: Hospital administrator Elephas Rex refuses to turn away patients. [[spoiler:It's because he's TheAtoner.]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: [[GenderInvertedTrope Gender inverted]] by Taupy and Muffy.
** Taupy's a gruff, one-eyed, no-nonsense bounty hunter who looks like [[BadassAdorable an adorable teddy bear less than half as tall as most of the rest of the cast.]] Muffy also looks like an adorable teddy bear, albeit one that is at least twenty feet tall.
* ImAHumanitarian: In the original version, before the [[ExecutiveMeddling executives told the writers to tone it down]], the beastmen didn't just rule over humans, they ''ate'' them.
* KnifeNut: Kyrie
* LarynxDissonance: Taupy, as mentioned above, is an adorable teddy bear-like feral...with a gruff, badass voice.
* LethalChef: Kyrie's special skills involve the use of food to attack. But also to heal.
* LuckBasedMission: What battles inevitably turn into, thanks to the combat system's method of giving you or your enemies another attack based on getting a critical hit. You can steamroll a boss in one playthrough, or just never get a turn in another.
** This isn't the case if you activate the GameBreaker [[MagikarpPower powers]] from flurry attacks though.
* MagikarpPower: Flurry attacks are rather weak (though accurate) at the beginning of the game when compared to blow attacks (more damage and less accurate, but this can easily be compensated for) however, once you reach lvl 20 (which isn't very further into the
video game, even without grinding, which is also fairly easy to do) you get the option of further improving all your attacks, giving them certain bonuses when doing so. Blow attacks can get some decent powerups from this, but flurry attacks get the option to chain which is more or less a GameBreaker.
see [[VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction here]].
* MeaningfulName: Kyrie means 'Lord' in Greek, Morte means 'Death'.
* MilhollandRelationshipMoment: [[spoiler: Muffy knew all along.]]
* MirrorUniverse: Literally, in the case of Serpens Rex's crazy mirror dimension.
* MoodWhiplash: On paper, the story looks like pretty serious stuff, and the original draft by writer Masato Kato was apparently even darker and more violent. As it turns out, [[ExecutiveMeddling the higher-ups]] insisted on marketing the game to a [[LighterAndSofter younger demographic]], and so they settled on the worst solution possible: keep the same basic story points, but pack each and every scene with lame, anime-cliche humor and have the game's position on the SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness go haywire.
* MoreDakka: Rhi'a if you chain her Flurry attacks, and Agan's Special Attack.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Morte Asherah, in account that "Morte" is the Portuguese word for "Death".
* NinjaZombiePirateRobot: Taupy is a teddybear-sized bear with a gruff voice, a bandanna and an eyepatch who fights enemies with martial arts.
* OneWingedAngel: All the beastlords pull this (the ones you fight, anyway).
** [[spoiler: [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere The Creator]] does this after you defeat her human form.]]
* PersonOfMassDestruction
* PettingZooPeople: Subverted in that most ferals look human. Played straight with the beastlords, as well as Crimson Sun (who is technically the [[ElementalEmbodiment embodiment]] of Light/Fire, but come on, he's a giant lion-man.)
** However, it's implied that they do have a transformation form. (not ''just'' the beastlords, mind you)
* RandomEncounters
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: As far as Beastlords go, Ursa Rex was evidently a fair and just ruler, who had [[FantasticRacism no problem with humans.]]
* [[spoiler:RedHeadedHero]]: [[spoiler:This is Kyrie's battle form after he is resurrected.]]
* TheSavageSouth: Summer Continent appears to be an {{expy}} of Africa, complete with deserts and savannah. The biggest sign of civilization is the complex operated by Elephas Rex, and travellers who fail to take precautions usually collapse from heat exhaustion before they reach it.
* SlidingScaleOfAntagonistVileness: The beastlords. We have [[HeroAntagonist Elephas Rex]] on one end, who will treat any and all patients who come to him, including [[spoiler: Morte]], down through Felis Rex, who is a nice guy, but still blackmails you into running errands for him, to Noctua Rex, [[spoiler: who traps you in your memories and tries to kill you, but is trying to save the world]], to the {{Jerkass}} Aqulia Rex down to Porcus Rex and Rana Rex, who eat random humans and use humans for fertilizer, respectively, and finally we have [[spoiler: Lacertus Rex, who wants to use all of humanity as raw material for a new world where he is God.]]
* ScrewDestiny: Kyrie does not want to destroy the world. [[spoiler: Just remake it into a better one.]]
* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''{{Xenogears}}''. Shares numerous staff members and some story and gameplay elements in common.
* SpritePolygonMix: Intentionally invoked to make the game resemble ''{{Xenogears}}'', as it was developed by the same people.
* StandardStatusEffects: Namely, Poison and Paralyze (Stun).
* SuspiciousVideogameGenerosity: Any healing points found inside the dungeon, after the party has traveled deep enough. Suspicious enough, due to the game allowing you to save anywhere.
* TheDulcineaEffect: See all that stuff in AngstWhatAngst? Don't let it happen to you, or you might wipe all your friends off the map.
* TheGunslinger: Rhi'a.
* TookALevelInBadass: Kyrie, [[spoiler:after being [[IGotBetter resurrected]], in combat anyways. He's still a whiny bitch otherwise.]]
** [[CharacterDevelopment A more confident somewhat less whiny bitch]], [[spoiler: whose (rather hilarious) reaction to an order to destroy the world is a flat "No" which leaves The Creator speechless.]]
* TransformationSequence: All the beastlords before battle, as well as Rajiv's, Naja's, and Rhi'a's Special Attacks. [[spoiler: And Kyrie at the start of each fight, after his awakening as the Destruct.]]
* VerbalTic: Taupy puts "bear-o" at the end of his sentences in the anime. When asked by Kyrie and Morte to stop, he says that he can't do it because it's an important part of his tribe's culture.
** In the FUNimation English dub of the anime "Toppy" (as they spelled it in the credits) ends nearly all of his sentences with "kuma" which is the Japanese for "bear." At one point in the anime, you meet a friend of his (also a dwarf-bear) who ends all of his sentences with simply "bear."
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Morte, a member of the World Annihilation Front, intends to "destroy this meaningless world."
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: As mentioned above, the original draft was much more darker, with possible depictions of ferals eating humans. Alas, {{executive meddling}} made the game's finalised story as it is. Well, there's hints like the time where Porco Rex threatens to eat that human child, but it's not quite the same. [[spoiler: There is also Lacertus Rex's plan to use humans as base material for his ascension to godhood.]]
* WhipItGood: Agan
* {{Wide Eyed Extremist}}: Kyrie would fit it the most since.
* XanatosGambit: [[spoiler: Lacertus Rex has one going. He runs the World Annihilation Front so he can gain power over the Destruct and [[AGodAmI become the creator of a new world.]]]]
** [[spoiler: This backfire spectacularly when Morte pulls a YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness on him.]]

!!Additionally, ''World Destruction: Sekai Bokumetsu no Rokunin'' contains examples of:
* ActionGirl: Morte and Rhi'a fall under this category. They fight rather often, too.
* {{Action Girlfriend}}: Morte is like this toward Kyrie. Of course Kyrie can't hold his own in battle.
* ActionSurvivor: Kyrie was just happy to finally have a job when he was caught up with the World Annihilation Front.
* AxCrazy: Rhi'a seems fairly calm and cool, but once you piss her off, she sprouts horns, wings, and a wicked tail and tries to kill your face.
* CatchPhrase: Toppi repeatedly says "There are two kinds of *blank*". Kyrie eventually parodies it, causing Toppi to say that there aren't two kinds of that.
* ChekhovsGunman: That guy that appears near the end of the trailer (after the beastlords)? [[BlatantLies Totally unimportant]].
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:Awakened Kyrie]] versus the entire World Salvation Committee and the Eagle Master.
* CuteMachines: The sentient robots in the anime have a very unassuming demeanor.
* CutenessProximity: Whenever he's in sight of a little kid, Toppy with undoubtedly become a victim of this.
* {{Distressed Dude}}: Kyrie. First episode, he gets drugged and is going to be the sacrifice of the village if not for Morte and Toppi saving him.
** Every other episode he tries his best to prevent this, but every other episode results in him being captured ALONG with Morte and Toppi. However, its to be noted that whenever Morte or Toppi get captured with him, it's always Kyrie's fault because he gets held as a hostage or gets knocked out first.
* EyePatchOfPower: Taupy and Yappi. Not so much that it gives them power, but that they're ridiculously bad ass.
* FacelessMooks: The World Salvation Committee's soldiers all wear white and blue uniforms with bird-like, white masks that conceal their eyes.
* FantasticRacism: A big plot point in the story.
* FridgeLogic: Sand somehow works like water. You can drop things in it and they'll float away,
If you're in danger of drowning if you fall into the Sand Sea...
* GangstaStyle: Rhi'a occasionally combines this with GunsAkimbo.
* {{Gonk}}: Fake Kyrie's kinda... ugly.
* GunFu: Rhi'a in the opening.
* GunsAkimbo: Rhi'a wields dual pistols in the anime.
* {{Hey Its that voice}}: Let's see now: Morte (Maaya Sakamoto), Kyrie (Mamoru Miyano), Taupy (Tohru Furuya), Yappi (Shūichi Ikeda), Naja (Daisuke Ono), Rhi'a (Yuu Kobayashi), the fake Kyrie (Keiji Fujiwara)
** In the dub, Kyrie is [[{{Baccano}} Firo]], [[DGrayMan Allen Walker]], [[SoulEater Death the Kid]] and [[{{xxxHolic}} Kimihiro Watanuki.]]
* HeroAntagonist: The World Salvation Committee.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Each episode title begins with "There are *insert number* kinds of *insert episode subject*".
* MagicSkirt: Considering how often Morte jumps around, you think you'd see up her skirt. You don't except for perhaps during the opening of the anime.
** Subverted in one episode where it steadily rips open higher and higher. Morte isn't happy when she finds out.
* {{Non Action Guy}}: Kyrie definitely. The other male members Agan and Naja rarely fight but they had at least one instant where they can knock the villains out of the way whereas Kyrie just whines the entire time.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: Toppy gives Kyrie mouth-to-mouth after he nearly drowns in sand in episode 8. The standard confusion happens.
* OddlySmallOrganization: The World Destruction Committee consists of three people, total. Though it is hinted that the World Salvation Committee actually started to believe their own propaganda, and began referring to the three protagonists as "Three members ''OF'' the World Destruction Committee".
** The game has the World Destruction Committee being less than ten people in number.
* OmnicidalManiac: Morte does want to ''destroy the world''. [[spoiler:Then averted at the moment of truth, when she decides the world isn't so bad after all.]]
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler: Rhi'a/Lia is actually about 300 years old. Kyrie has been alive since the creation of the world]].
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Subverted in the case of [[spoiler: Elephas Rex]].
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Taupy counts. Kinda.
** Much to his dismay.
* RobotBuddy: 28 functioned as this for Taupy in one episode.
* ShoutOut: Taupy played by Furuya Tooru meets Yappi in Episode 5. Who is played by Shūichi Ikeda. These two play rivals in the original MobileSuitGundam anime as Amuro Ray and Char Aznable. Coincidence? I think not.
** Taupy also pulls the line 'Ore wa dare to omotteiru' from TengenToppaGurrenLagann
*** That line has been in anime and manga (and I imagine other forms of Japanese media) forever, so that may just be a coincidence (if not necessarily the above).
* SpellMyNameWithAnS/[[InconsistentDub Inconsistent Translation]]: Both the fansubs, and the official translation by Funimation spell the character names differently from the English version of the game, resulting in what could now be called "[[MegaManNTWarrior Mega Man]] syndrome". Examples from the fansubs include Morute/Morte, and Kirie/Kyrie. Examples from the Funimation version include (but may not be limited to) Urshela/Ashera (Morte's last name), Illnis/Illunis (Kyrie's last name), Toppy/Taupy, Nadja/Naja, and Lia/Rhi'a. In addition, there are two different "official" translations for "Sekai Bokumetsu Iinkai" (世界撲滅委員会). Sega calls it the "World Annihilation Front", while Funimation calls it the "World Destruction Committee". The former name is technically a {{Woolseyism}} (or a {{Macekre}}, [[YourMileageMayVary depending on who you ask]]), while the latter name is truer to the original Japanese. Keep in mind that it was a video game to begin with.
* TeamChef: Kyrie is a damn good chef, despite all appearances.
* TeamMom: Kyrie, despite being useless battle-wise, is fairly domestic.
* TheAnimeOfTheGame: Quite a good one, too.
* ThemeNaming: The titles typically start with 'There two kinds of (insert thing here)'.
* ThereAreTwoKindsOfPeopleInTheWorld: This is part of the IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming of the anime.
* TriggerHappy: Rhi'a. She reaches for her guns whenever she's provoked.
* {{Tsundere}}: Because Morte isn't {{Ax Crazy}} as she is in the video game or manga, she would fit this troupe more. Type A around everyone.
** Morte is more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold; she doesn't have any love interests (note that when she thinks Kyrie is propositioning her, she just gets mad). Rhi'a is a better example, and is type A towards Kyrie.
* VerbalTic: Taupy ends most of his sentences with the word 'kuma'. His rival Yappi ends his sentences with the word 'bear'.
* VillainProtagonist: The three members of the World Annihilation Front, though Kyrie and Toppi are just along
looking for the ride.
** Its worth noting that this a rare case where the "villainous" protagonists are ''absolutely right''. Yes, they want to destroy the world, but its made clear throughout the game that its such a horrifyingly bleak DeathWorld that destruction [[spoiler:or recreation]] really ''is'' the best option.
* WhiteHairedPrettyBoy: Naja.
* WingedHumanoid: Rhi'a gets wings during her dragon transformation sequence.
* YasunoriMitsuda: Composed part of the music.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Rhi'a definitely counts. Morte not so much since she wears thigh-high boots.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateTimeline: As Kyrie began researching the Destruct Code's history, he noted how it extends to the beginning of creation, when the gods were given a choice: either to allow humans to rule over beasts, or vice versa. The gods for that world gave that power to beasts, which gives [[HumansAreBastards an interesting perspective flip]] [[FridgeHorror when you think about it]].
