Tropes !!Tropes present in ''Breakdown'' include:



* ShoutOut: Like most things that came out of Japan around the turn of the century, many nods to ''{{Evangelion}}'' abound. The enemies are monsters with forcefields that came from an alien structure buried underground and the most humanlike one is a creepy white haired guy. Professor Stefania dresses ''exactly'' like Ritsuko Akagi and dies in a similar manner to her mother [[spoiler:at first]]. Oddly her pet cat, Casval, is named after Char's real name from ''MobileSuitGundam''.

* CrowningMomentofAwesome: [[spoiler:After waking up in the future, Derrick must make his way to Ogawa's lab to receive an injection that will allow him to kill Solus and destroy Nexus in the past. Just as he's about to inject Derrick, T'lan break in, causing Ogawa to drop the syringe into a nearby grate. Alex holds them off while you scramble to retrieve the syringe. When you finally get it and inject it into yourself, power surges through Derrick as heroic music begins to play, and he bursts through the grate like Superman and proceeds to absolutely curb-stomp the T'lan.]]

* DiegeticInterface: The game springs this on you halfway through, which is probably a nasty surprise to most players. [[spoiler:The game thus far has been you reliving your memories through a machine, and the HUD elements are part of the system.]] After that, all HUD elements are gone.
