* LighterAndSofter: Has a lot of the same elements and feel as TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}, but is a lot more hopeful. Oh, MutantChronicles is plenty grimdark by most standards, but here compassion and respect for human life are still important, the Emperor-analogue still leads humanity from the front and it feels like humanity actually has a chance.

''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 (''Doom Trooper'' 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 didn't care, not to say it wasn't still good on its own.

* KillItWithFire: What's a dark sci-fantasy game without a flamethrower and Mutant Chronicles is no exception. For those creatures that resist heavy machine guns, the Cartel can burn them with the Gehenna Puker and every faction has their own flamethrower.

** Mishima - Mostly Edo Japan, with {{samurai}}, {{ninja}}s and warrior monks. A few bits and pieces of other asian cultures are present, such as TheTriadsAndTheTongs as the main criminal organisation, and the city of Fukido, which is basically Hong Kong (it's on lease to Imperial for 99 years following a lost war, natch).

* HelloNurse: Cybertronic's ad campaign regarding the Dr. Diana clones/bioroids depict her as a sexy nurse. And it's partially true, those non-Cybertronic individuals who meet her, find her looks are enough to overcome the queasiness they feel at her inhuman coldness.

* ShoddyKnockoffProduct: This is Mishima's economic niche. Barring a few items (such as swords), the Mishima corporation mass produces poor quality goods. They still profit heavily as these goods are cheap to manufacture and are highly affordable to the masses.

They still profit heavily as these goods are cheap to manufacture and are highly affordable to the masses. Only the Whitestars make crappier goods and that's because they're scavenging obsolete designs.

* WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys: The Dark Legion gets most of their equipment from Algeroth's weapon-builders, who amongst other things reverse-engineer captured human weapons and then mod them with Dark Symmetry. Besides Algeroth, all the other Dark Apostles design weapons for their followers, with Algeroth being especially alarmed at how good some of Illian's designs are.
