** Bauhaus - Germany, Russia, France and Italy, served as 19th Century-style Aristocracy ([[AristocratsAreEvil Evil optional]]).

** Bauhaus - Germany, Russia, Russia (though see below), France and Italy, served as 19th Century-style Aristocracy ([[AristocratsAreEvil Evil optional]]).


Added DiffLines:

** Whitestar, introduced in 3E, is far more openly based on Russia (with shades of the Soviet Union) than Bauhaus, though [[fridgebrilliance it is noted]] that some Russians defected to Bauhaus in the "old days" (and there is bad blood between the two factions over it).

Added DiffLines:

** Subverted in the 3E backstory up until the Dark Symmetry is unleashed: AIs actually tried to prevent humanity from releasing the Dark Symmetry, because they had collectively figured out that some unknown force was influencing humanity to do something like that.

Added DiffLines:

* RomanticismVersusEnlightenment: Boils down the conflict between the Brotherhood and Cybertronic quite nicely. The Brotherhood is Romantic, espousing spirituality and PsychicPowers as the path to a united humanity and step forward as a species. Cybertronic is Enlightenment, and equally interested in seeing humanity unite and advance, but advocate using BrainUploading to create a unified consciousness.

** Cybertronic gets things done. Somehow. [[spoiler:Actually, their CEO is a practically omniscient VirtualGhost that the higher-ups run their decisions by simply by typing in an inquiry. Assuming they aren't his hundred or so clones, all of which embody a different facet of his personality. So, a God-King, of sorts.]]

[[spoiler: The third edition Cybertronic splatbook teases that while defeating the Dark Legion is essential for humanity's survival, the conflict which will truly define humanity's fate is the one between the Durand brothers.]]

''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 (''TabletopGame/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 ''VideoGame/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.

* {{Ubermensch}}: Vince Diamond. In short: bleached {{Cyborg}} VinDiesel. Some other Cybertronic troops also qualify. [[spoiler:And their founder, who effectively made himself the god of the internet.]]

* BenevolentPrecursors: [[spoiler:Ancient Martians, who sealed the Dark Legion away and severely weakened it in modern times-just enough for humanity to stand a fighting chance.]]

* BenevolentPrecursors: [[spoiler:Ancient Martians, [[spoiler:Ancients and their Guardians, who sealed the Dark Legion away and severely weakened it in modern times-just enough for humanity to stand a fighting chance.]]



** Mutation by terraforming agents [[spoiler:is both a subversion and an ''inversion''. It's not actually effects from the terraformation, it's the Genetic Pilgrimage being signaled it's ready to turn at least a few humans into reborn BenevolentPrecursors. The gradual transformation actually immunizes the mutant almost entirely from the Symmetry, and the greatest mental effect is a compulsion to include "defeat the Dark Legion" on any list of priorities. As the book itself points out: Since the Dark Legion wanted to kill and enslave all human life, ''why isn't it already!?'']]



** Mutants: The more they develop their non-Light based psionic strength and the more they are exposed to terraforming agents, the more they look increasingly like predatory, reptilian aliens. [[spoiler:They ''do'', but said aliens are their [[BenevolentPrecursor Guardian]] ancestors; they are, in fact, becoming the perfect anti-Dark Legion {{Super Soldier}}s, and they retain their personalities completely throughout the metamorphosis.]]



* HumansAreWarriors: [[spoilers:Why the Ancients decided to make humanity their plan to repulse the Dark Soul forever-we're naturally more violent, which means naturally more ''ambitious and determined'' then they were.]]



* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Brotherhood Crucifiers. [[spoiler:Ancient Martians had this naturally.]]
* {{Mutant}}: Curiously downplayed. There's a lot in the Dark Legion, but very few everywhere else, to the point where mutation is seen as a sign of being a Heretic, because generally you're a Heretic before you mutate. [[spoiler:Entirely human mutants are descendants of Ancient experiments into inoculating humanity against the Dark Symmetry.]]
