* AnIcePerson: Freon.



* BlowYouAway: Tempest.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Tempest, initially, ''seems'' like one of the less morally-warped fighters, concerned mostly with avenging her father's death and ensuring his peace stays in place. [[spoiler: Then it turns out that ''she'' is her father's killer and the mastermind who unleashed Necron. Ironically, this ensures that her ending is one of the few "good" ones, as the whole planet unites ''against'' her, leading to her defeat and execution.]]

* ElementalPowers:
** BlowYouAway: Tempest. She can shoot tornadoes that hold the opponent in place, her passable power is a barrier of wind, and her Gauntlet shoots a tornado that stuns enemies and draws them closer. Her Fatality spins her opponent's head around like a tornado.
**
DishingOutDirt: Tremor.Tremor. He can transform into a boulder and roll at enemies or through the air, he can send a shockwave along the ground, his passable power is stomping the ground to cause an earthquake, and his gauntlet shoots stones of three sizes.
** PlayingWithFire: Hellhound. He can shoot a burst of flame, he can transform into a similar-looking burst of flame and charge at the opponent, his passable power is turning into a swirling fireball, and his gauntlet shoots a short-range burst of flame. His fatality involves turning into a flaming skeleton to tear off the opponent's limbs.
** AnIcePerson: Freon. He can freeze enemies solid, morph into an ice slick, and his gauntlet shoots ice boomerangs.
** HavingABlast: Mirage. Her passable powers are mines and grenades, and her gauntlet likewise shoots grenades. Her Fatality is putting a bomb on her opponent's head.
** ILoveNuclearPower: Fallout. He shoots radioactive slime from his hands, his passable power is an E.R. Cannon, and his gauntlet shoots toxic quills.



* FinishingMove: Each regular character had three: a Decapitation, a Sunder, and a regular Fatality. The Decapitation and Sunder moves could be performed at any time, but had a very small hit radius, and the Sunder only worked against a stunned enemy (and would only do normal damage otherwise).
** The playable boss characters lacked character-specific Fatalities, only having a Decapitation and Sunder each. Their Decapitation and Sunder also lacked special names.
** A Sunder was not a true finisher, however, merely doing a lot of damage but not guaranteeing a one-hit kill like the others. If your opponent still had life after a Sunder, they could still fight, but as nothing more than a torso and head. They could even still potentially win the match if they had attacks that didn't require arms or legs (like eyebeams).

* GenghisGambit: Not done intentionally, but is a side effect of [[spoiler:Tempest and Razor's endings. Tempest unites the provinces against her by accidentally letting slip that she started the whole mess, while Razor unites the provinces against Cyberia when he wins.]]

* {{Gorn}}: Let's just say the budget didn't go to ironing out the gameplay.
** It doesn't even wait for the game to start and has plenty of gore in the ''attract mode''.
* GuideDangIt: Just try to find all the Agents of Necron without a guide. Or figure out all the cheat codes. Or your move inputs. Or just about anything.

* SnapBack: When a character loses a limb or even their HEAD, they are automatically fixed by the time the next round starts. In Talon and Razor's case the former can at least be handwaved by the fact that their limbs are robotic and in theory more easily replaceable. Everyone else? ...Eh, [[Mst3kMantra don't think about it too hard.]]

* ALighterShadeOfBlack: Freon, who's just trying to make peace with Scorch. This is a losing proposition, however; the leader of Scorch (to the extent that the kingdom has one) is the AxCrazy Hellhound, who delights in murdering his diplomats at the peace conferences. [[spoiler:His ending subverts this, as humanity is still conquered and enslaved by the Ice People.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AllYourPowersCombined:
** Shadow is not only invisible, he possesses all the Passable Powers of all eight characters, plus the upgrades to the mines, the grenades, and the eyebeam learned from three of the other Agents of Nekron.
** Whoever the player chooses can become this as well, after beating all their opponents (including, again, the three Agents with passable powers).
