** Tempest and Sky-Scraper will work together, but they do not get along well. Sky-Scraper is a Thorathian, like Voss, although her backstory has her in the resistance against him. Then again, the Prime Wardens, including Tempest, eventually accompanied her to Dok'Thorath to help the rebels oust the remains of Voss's military and she has joined the Prime Wardens by the time of the ''Tactics: Prime War'' expansion, so they clearly eventually bury the hatchet.

* TheTeam: Being a cooperative game, any battle comes down to a team effort among the players, who are each filling different rolls. Any game needs, at minimum, three heroes. InUniverse, so far there are three organized superhero teams: The Freedom Five (Legacy, Bunker, Wraith, Tachyon and Absolute Zero with Unity as their intern); the Darkwatch (Nightmist, Expatriette, Setback, Mr. Fixer, and -- at the time of ''Sentinels Tactics'' -- Pinion, a reformed Matriarch); and The Prime Wardens (The Argent Adept, Haka, Tempest, Fanatic, and Captain Cosmic). The Sentinels also count, being four characters, though they're a single hero deck.

** While the teams remain largely the same in ''Tactics'', there are some slight differences to the teams in the RPG.
** The Freedom Five disbands and forms the Sentinels of Freedom, an organization more focused on training the new generation of heroes. A new team named Daybreak forms, which includes Felicia Parsons as Legacy and Muse, a grown up Dreamer.
** The Prime Wardens disband, and among the first modules in the RPG is [[PuttingTheBandBackTogether reforming the team]].
** Another new team, The Paradigms, is formed by a reformed Revo-Corp and headlined by Unity and Benchmark.

Added DiffLines:

*** While Thorathian Monolith makes Sky-Scraper change to her Huge card and depicts her as such, it's possible for her to swap to her Normal or Tiny cards while it's still in effect, so that she's still somehow shielding her teammates while she's only a few inches tall.

* SuperheroSpeciation: Each hero has unique powers, and even among the heroes who fit a similar archetype as outlined in AnAdventurerIsYou work differently in ''how'' they fill those roles. Even if you play all three versions of Legacy at once, while they all use the same deck, their base power makes them subtly different -- Greatest Legacy's is to heal, Legacy's is to buff, and Young Legacy's is a straight attack.

* {{Stripperiffic}}: Downplayed, but still present because this is a comic book game and that sort of thing's a requirement. Almost none of the women are indecently dressed, but among the heroes, The Wraith's outfit has a cleavage window, the Visionary's has a belly-button window, Tachyon's costume only covers one shoulder, Expatriette [[BareYourMidriff bares her middriff]], and Unity's wearing a very short tank top. Of the men, Haka and Ra are bare-chested. For the most part, the villains avert this, although Ermine does wear an outfit that exposes a fair bit of cleavage and Fright Train's outfit is basically a pair of pants and his mask.

Parodied with Guise's Total Beefcake card, which depicts him in a bikini -- which is worn over his normal superhero tights. Which are, in fact, part of his shapeshifted skin. Guise is ''weird''.

* SidekickGraduationsStick: The only real sidekick in the setting, Thiago, ends up becoming the next incarnation of Ra in ''Tactics'' once Dr. Washington perishes fighting [=OblivAeon=]. He's noted as being a bit less arrogant than the previous Ra, but no less hot-headed.

** Young Legacy in both new timelines post [=OblivAeon=]. In ''Sentinels Tactics'', where her father is still active as Legacy, she graduates to Beacon. In the RPG, where her father has retired, she takes up the mantle of Legacy properly.

* SelfImposedChallenge: Each Villain card has an "Advanced" setting that tweaks their rules to make things harder on the heroes. Among the effects are increasing the amount of damage villain cards do, reducing how much damage they take, and speeding up the villain's NonStandardGameOver. The game's wiki also includes other challenges, such as immediately setting up Skinwalker Gloomweaver after beating Spite, Agent of Gloom, starting Akash'bhuta with more of her targets out or increasing all the damage The Dreamer takes to the point of being a OneHitKill.

** Played straight with the villains who are fighting [=OblivAeon=], who all have reduced HP in their hero decks.

to:

** Played straight with the villains who are fighting [=OblivAeon=], who all have reduced HP in their hero decks. WordOfGod is that a given villain's HP is not necessarily literally that villain's toughness or stamina, but more represents the difficulty in thwarting their plot.
