* AuthorityInNameOnly: Lord Mishima is in theory the head of Mishima, and as such one of the six most powerful people alive. In practice, the only people who obey him are his ten thousand or so retainers and his only duties are to represent Mishima in the Cartel, but everyone knows that all negotiations of weight with Mishima need to be done directly with one of the High Lords.

** Unfortunately, likely due to renewed efforts by the Dark Soul to crush humanity, [[CorruptChurch corruption]] has begun to take root in many of the less rigtheous individuals and subgroups.

* WritingAroundTrademarks: Sort of. Nothing is stated outright, but it's heavily implied that Bauhaus is the contemporary retail chain [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bauhaus_(company) Bauhaus]], and that Imperial grew out of clan Murdoch, which, in turn grew from {{Rupert Murdoch}}'s media empire. There is also mention in the fluff of ''[[{{Cats}} The Devil's Cats]], a [[LongRunner long-running]] musical by [[TSEliot T.S.]] [[AndrewLloydWebber Webber]].

* TheBigBad: The Dark Soul, leader of the Dark Legion and the closest thing to a genuine GodOfEvil there is in the setting. Thankfully it needs proxies to do anything.

* KatanasAreJustBetter: Zig-zagged. Katanas are the best standard-pattern swords. There are several other types of swords, such as claymores forged by clan Gallagher, which are significantly better, but they are either {{Ace Custom}}s or {{AncestralWeapon}}s.

What's it all about? Earth gets too tight for the {{MegaCorp}}s, so after battling for quite a time, they go and colonize the whole inner Solar System (and a few outposts beyond), since AllPlanetsAreEarthLike (MASSIVE terraforming). Sadly, [[TheBritishEmpire Imperial]] colonizers go a planet too far, reaching the mysterious Tenth Planet (named Nero) and unleashing the CosmicHorror - The Dark Soul along with its [[HumanoidAbomination Apostles]] and their [[TheLegionsOfHell Dark Legion]]. People go nuts and form [[ReligionOfEvil evil cults]], the Dark Symmetry makes [[AIIsACrapshoot all sufficiently powerful computers go evil]], [[DemonicInvaders Demonic]] AlienInvaders expand their ranks with {{Squick}}y BodyHorror Shop creations from cybernetic [[TheUndead zombies]] and {{mutants}} of different kinds to Franchise/{{Godzilla}}-sized zombies to biomechanical {{Spider Tank}}s. In short: TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

''Mutant Chronicles'' is a post-apocalyptic role playing game created by the Swedish company Target Games. It also spawned a semi-successful franchise: two {{Collectible Card Game}}s (''DoomTrooper'' and ''TabletopGame/DarkEden''), three {{Board Game}}s (Fury of the Clansmen, Blood Berets and Doom Troopers: Siege of the Citadel) two tabletop wargames (War Zone and Mutant Chronicles: Collectible Miniatures Game), a VideoGame (''VideoGame/DoomTroopers'', the second one planned to be a RTS in the vein of DawnOfWar was canned), a novel trilogy, a short ComicBook series and a film whose writers apparently just didn't know or [[TheyJustDidntCare Just Didn't Care]], not to say it wasn't still good on its own.

Added DiffLines:
* HandCannon: Many of the setting's pistols, at least visually. It says a lot when [[http://www.ambient.ca/cpunk/images/piranha.gif the Piranha Handgun]] (which was [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Alucard's gun]] before Alucard even existed) is designated on the setting as a ''backup for undercover agents''.

* FateWorseThanDeath: Being processed into any of the Legionnaire or Necromutant variants. Or even "reanimated" into Cybertronic service... when your original Corporation manages to capture you alive.%* FeudalFuture: Played straight by Bauhaus and Mishima, downplayed by Imperial, subverted by Capitol.

* FateWorseThanDeath: Being processed into any of the Legionnaire or Necromutant variants. Or even "reanimated" into Cybertronic service... when your original Corporation manages to capture you alive.%* FeudalFuture: Played straight by alive. * FeudalFuture: ** Mishima is based on Tokugawa-era ''bushido'', and a particularly brutal brand at that. Land and industrial rights are given as fiefdoms, with the High Lords doing as they please. Social mobility is pretty much non-existent, though that is changing. ** Bauhaus are also purely feudal, but less oppressive. Bauhaus nobles, unlike their Mishiman counterparts, have a strong sense of ''noblesse obligé'', and commoners who distinguish themselves can be raised to the nobility. That said, commoners are second-class citizens in Bauhaus, and no bones are made about that. ** Imperial flip-flops a bit. While less extreme than Bauhaus or Mishima, downplayed power lies firmly with the clan chiefs and their families. Commoners have little power, but they ''do'' have a fair bit of influence. It is very possible for commoners to rise to power by Imperial, subverted working their way up in the civil service, distinguishing themselves in battle or taking advisory positions with powerful people. ** Capitol is a subversion. The corporation is governed by Capitol.shareholders voting their stock like a modern day corporation, with the CEO holding a position analogue to that of the president of the United States. ** Cybertronic gets things done. Somehow. ** The Brotherhood are an electory theocracy led by the Cardinal, who is elected by the leading figures in the Brotherhood and holds his position until death.
