* [[DemocracyIsBad Democracy Is Stupid]]: Or at least Democratus is stupid. ''Painfully'' stupid. '''"Almost let itself be annihilated by a HordeOfAlienLocusts"''' stupid.
-->'''ObstructiveBureaucrat''': ''We have no evidence that the missiles are even destructive in nature!''\\
'''OnlySaneMan''': '' '''Evidence?''' The Verilent Hive has been doing this for hundreds of years: Bomb planet, wait for dust to settle, then re-colonize to expand hive! What exactly do you think is inside those warheads? '''Gift baskets?''' ''
** The only reason they survive their introduction is because the OnlySaneMan gets ''really'' good at yelling the other seven council members into agreeing with him.

* BlackComedy: Plenty, as this is a comedic game with FilmNoir overtones. See BrokenBridge below for one example.

Although intended to be a humorous game, it isn't really a parody of the genre. It features a wide variety of tropes commonly associated with Japanese [=RPGs=] of the period such as the 3D installments of the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series, as opposed to Western PC [=RPGs=] of the period such as the ''Franchise/BaldursGate'' series. The game did reasonably well with critics, but was not a big seller. Among those who did play it, it is notorious for its ending, which is a very obvious lead-up to the sequel that was never to be.
