* TimeyWimeyBall: The ultimate cause behind all the cataclysmic events seems to form one: [[spoiler:The universe forms an endless cycle of Big Bang - Big Crunch events. A war between Order and Chaos in the next universe ended with Order banishing Chaos into the current universe. Chaos has set plans in motion to escape into the previous universe, and shunt enough mass from that universe to the current universe so that the total mass of the previous universe does not provide enough gravitational pull to cause a Big Crunch, and the future universes will never be born. How this can be successful when logically it should mean that a) Chaos erases its own existence and b) also erases the universe where they were sending all that matter, is never brought up.]]

[[NoOntologicalInertia Apparently what happens in one universe stays in that universe.]]]]

*** stun abilities from other characters had similar issues. Grumpos was simply the most obvious since he had no other abilities which he could use Bouge on for awhile, making the Yammer ability more tempting to use, and the in-game description left it so unclear what the ability was intended to do.

Added DiffLines:

* SpaceFriction: Averted for a good spot of suspense: The Verilent Hive has launched missiles at Democratus, and the team makes an assault on the Hive to remotely disable the missiles. After they are done, the missiles are still approaching. Rho points out that since there is no friction in space, they won't know whether they were successful until they see whether the warheads will detonate on impact.

* AlienGeometries: Anachronox is a constantly shifting world which has gravity in all sorts of different direction. Ceilings, floors, walls: it's all fair game.

'''This game provides examples of the following tropes:'''

'''This !!This game provides examples of the following tropes:'''
tropes:



* BlindJump: The Sender Spikes going to and from Anachronox aren't fully mapped. You meet an NPC that makes a living testing new ones, even though he could be stranded on the other side or killed by whatever's there. The party also does one by accident when their attempt to use a Spike is disrupted by an explosion, causing it to fling them in an unintended direction.



* BrokenBridge: [[ParodiedTrope "Someone's on fire just around the corner. This area's closed off until he puts himself out."]]
** Just in case you think he's kidding, you can see a man behind him, fully aflame, running around and screaming. The guy you're talking to is a [[DirtyCop cop]], and [[PoliceAreUseless he's doing absolutely nothing]] to help the poor man. It's just that kind of game.
