* ShoutOut[=/=]TakeThat: A lot of the Trash Talk codes throw in references, flattering and unflattering, to various targets. '[[ElectronicGamingMonthly Sushi-X rules this game!]]', '[[MortalKombat Who cares where Goro is?]]', '[[RenAndStimpy Dont wizz on the electric fence]]', '[[TheSimpsons Eat my shorts]]' and '[[MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail I fart in your general direction]]' are just a few of the references in the game. [[ReferenceOverdosed Seeing them all might take some effort.]]

* 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.]]

* SociopathicHero: Razor's power of authority may come from a shady and dubious trading network, and his motivations are less than altruistic, he's still one of the ''nicer'' contestants. [[spoiler:Helps that he and Tremor have the only endings remotely resembling a "good" ending.]]

* FinishingMove: Each 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. If your opponent still had life after a sunder, they could still fight, but as nothing more than a torso.

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, Sunder, they could still fight, but as nothing more than a torso.torso and head. They could even still potentially win the match if they had attacks that didn't require arms or legs (like eyebeams).

* HeadSwap: The seven [[BonusBoss Bonus Bosses]] plus mandatory sub-boss Sin are just the main cast with different colors and heads. Furthermore, Hellhound and Freon are actually just head swaps of each other, but with slightly different standing poses. Blood and Shadow take it one step further by not only being headswaps of Hellhound and Freon (and so headswaps of each other), they even have the exact same moveset. Finally, the various "big head" codes let you replace your character's head with a comical one. * HighPressureBlood: Exaggerated with Blood, a secret character who basically has an ever-gushing blood fountain where his head should be.

"decoy protagonist" not "decoy hero"
* DecoyProtagonist: From the in-game bio and not looking as over-the-top as the other fighters, one might have assumed Tempest would be the true heroine out of a cast of slavers and psychopaths. [[spoiler:Turns out she started the whole mess in the first place and killed her father to upsurp his throne. When she lets this slip in her ending, the townsfolk are... [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves not exactly happy about it.]]]]
