* TropeCodifier: Of RealTimeStrategy games played from the POV of a central 'general' instead of an 'all-knowing eye in the sky', which would be used in later games such as ''VideoGame/{{Sacrifice}}'' and ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'', and also through the possession mode in ''VideoGame/DungeonKeeper''.

* CoolClearWater: Averted one of the planets, Spartacus has trace amounts of arsenic in its water despite looking clear in the missions and actually has been wearing down on the filters that the EDF relied on. Corber mentions in one of the monologues that one of his fellow infantry men [[TooDumbToLive drank some of the unpurified water]] and died about an hour later.

* FieryRedhead: Shabayev, as revealed in her [[http://www.bzcomplex.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=66&pos=80 concept art.]]



* TheFaceless: Despite the large amount of character interaction this game has, especially when compared to the first game, you only see ''one'' character's face, though [[http://www.bzcomplex.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=66 concept art exists]] for all major characters. [[spoiler: On the mission where you need to retrieve Padishah Burns from the crashed carrier, you can hop out of your tank and look at his chariot thing, with Burns sitting in it.]] However, [[concept art exists depicting several of the principle characters- among other things, Shabayev is a FieryRedhead.
