** One of the most blatant examples in the sequel comes when Void and his bedfellows are shown playing ''Mortal Kombat'' and ''Halo''. The issue with the XBox logging out all players on a console when a single one does so is even referenced.

* LostForever: Michael's morningstar. Probably the most powerful weapon in the world, and it gets dropped into hell at the end of the first game.

%%** BadassNormal: Everyone except Nick in the beginning of AC1, just Michael by the end of it.
%%*** Michael obtains a robotic arm near the end of AC1, and has a ''shapeshifting arm from Hell'' before that. I wouldn't exactly count that as normal... maybe by Atherverse standards, but not RealLife standards.

* IneffectualLoner: To some extent, Void in AC1, after the Council is destroyed completely. Example: taking on War by yourself means you're going in the massive hellhole. [[FastballSpecial Throwing a psychopath who happens to be your ally in that battle at him instead?]] Instant success!

%%** Actually, this applies to Void and Solaris in equal measure, since both have tentacles and regeneration to absorb the impact. Void frequently uses this to his advantage when travelling in AC1; Solaris also uses it, but not very often.

* EscapedFromHell:
**This is why Dominic is still alive after the timeskip; he broke out of Hell. In fact, he's managed it twice.
** Void also escaped from Hell after being thrown into the hellhole by War.



%%* FiveManBand:
%%** Dominic is TheHero
%%** Victor is TheLancer
%%** Nick is TheSmartGuy
%%** Michael/The Silencer is TheBigGuy
%%** Rogue is TheChick
%%*** In the sequel, the band consists of Andrus as TheHero, Jack as TheLancer, Lucinda as [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Gal]], Rick as [[TheBigGuy The Big- well, The Fast Guy]] and Solaris as TheChick. Also, Sol as TheSixthRanger, the two magic-infused children as the [[TeamPet Team Pets]] and Lee as the TagalongKid.
%%*** Also, one might see Void as the OlderAndWiser mentor of sorts, in certain lights... perhaps not a very [[BuffySpeak mentorial]] mentor, but certainly the oldest of the main group in the sequel. Of course, this subjects him to MentorOccupationalHazard, and... well, yeah.
%%*** As of Dana joining the main group in the sequel, Solaris has been relegated to TheHeart. Either that, or Dana herself is TheHeart. Exactly who's who hasn't been made entirely clear just yet.
%%*** And with Michael and Connor showing up... well, by this point, I think the FiveManBand thing has been slightly destroyed for the sequel, wouldn't you agree?
%%*** Actually, most of those mentioned above have died, or otherwise been removed from the protagonist group. It currently consists of Andrus, Jack, Lucinda, Michael, John, Connor, Lee, Amy, Solaris and Conglacior, with the recent update meaning that nobody is TheHero until Lucius gets killed off.
%%*** Andrus and John have both been kidnapped. Michael and Connor have been removed from the group, too. That leaves Lucinda, Lee, Amy, Solaris and Conglacior (and technically Jack, but his controller has left TWA indefinitely).

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Averted by Solaris' lightbending ability, which conforms to real physics as part of the in-game power limitation agreement that everyone has. Played straight with Dominic's teleportation in the first game, as he apparently ignores gravity for a fair while after teleportation, and can seemingly control whether excess momentum is carried over between teleports or not.
%%** ArtisticLicense would be argued, but only because YouFailReadingForever doesn't exist. In the first game his teleportation was always conforming to the direction of his current movement. It is only in the sequel that it changes, allowing Dominic to move through the void in-between the Realms whenever he teleports, resetting his momentum if he wishes.
%%*** He still seems to ignore gravity at will, as he never crashes into the ground at high velocity after dragging opponents into the sky in the original. [[JustifiedTrope He can apparently levitate in the sequel due to god powers, though.]]



** Averted in the original, where Ancalagon, the Dragon of Hell, played an important part in displaying the might of the antagonist. Said battle also armed the main party: Dominic acquiring his dragon fang sword; Victor, his dragon scale shield.

* MinorInsultOverreaction: At being spat on [[BerserkButton and called Tentacles]] one time too many, Void begins stripping Rick's mother as though to rape her.
** His potential for doing so is quickly disproved, however; he flatout states afterwards that he never intended to actually rape her, merely using his actions as a method of getting information as to what had occurred to her when she was younger to make her so paranoid/psychopathic. Which, both incidentally and unfortunately for Void, was being raped by someone.
*** ...and it then turns out that she wasn't actually raped at all; she just pretended to have been to hide a massive anger spike.
