* ActionGirl
** ActionMom: ''Adoptive'' mother, but it still counts--especially given that Jade's need to provide for her kids is what catapaults her into the story in the first place.

* SceneryPorn: Lots of it.
* SchizoTech[=/=]AnachronismStew: The game's setting is... eclectic, to say the least, with elements from past, present, and future. There's a still-functioning lighthouse, most buildings are made from stone, pictures are stored on film, travel is commonly done by boat or hovercraft, the lighthouse doubles as a shield projector, and the flying cars resemble modern-day cars without wheels.

* SimpleStaff: Jade's choice, as a martial arts master.



* {{Uncancelled}}: Everyone thought that poor sales of the first title pretty much doomed the game to being a one-shot: up till Ubisoft dropped the trailer for the sequel out of nowhere.

** BeamSpam: Jade's "super attack" is somewhere between this and a MacrossMissileMassacre.
*** This particular attack could be considered a GameBreaker to some, though it depends.

* ShockwaveStomp: This is the first part of the team attack--your partner creates a shockwave, sending all ground-bound enemies into the air. (The second half involves you attacking them, which allows you to throw them into the wall/an arc of electricity/another enemy/a bridge that needs knocked down/materia crystals.)

* PluckyComicRelief: Pey'j is comic relief and he knows it; he supplies plenty of jokes, [[ButtMonkey is the butt of a few]], and always keeps his chin up. He's even a bit of a BoisterousBruiser at times. Double H comes off as comic relief due to his [[BunnyEarsLawyer weird mannerisms]], though it's suggested that he's actually [[GenreSavvy quite self-aware.]]

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: The game is carefully plotted out so that it's impossible to get the various items at Mammago out of order. Cannon? It's not possible to get enough pearls to afford it until the time you're supposed to get it. Jump unit? Same thing. Flight Stabilizer? Even if you have the pearls, they're out of stock, and Mammago's won't get a new one in until after you clear the Slaughterhouse. Space Drive? Even if you get the pearls you need, they won't sell it to you until you show up in [[spoiler:the Beluga]], which you can't do until you've gotten everything else.
