* BeYourself: [[spoiler: Chompoo's ending has her defy her father's wishes for her future and pursue her own path. But, see UnfortunateImplications in the YMMV tab. Also, Ramba was split between her legal career and her duties as a student to Loka's school, so Loka has Ramba take a break from her legal studies so she can remember what it is she was fighting for.]]

* TrademarkFavoriteFood: You learn in a throwaway line in Rochedo and Saturno's team ending that Saturno spends too much looking for the perfect "Feijoada", a stew of beans with beef and pork which is often considered Brazil's national dish.

* NonIdleRich: Rochedo, a former student of Loka's who is now an independent Mestre with his own school, is a good example. He's independently wealthy thanks to his father's tourism business, but he chooses to spend most of his spare time helping underprivileged childre.
** Coelha is another good example. She's the wealthy heiress of Vincentin Industries, since her father is the head of the company. But she practices capoeira as a student of Loka's in her spare time, since she first learned capoeira from her father on the beach when he practiced in his spare time, but since her father mysteriously disappeared two years ago, she's sought out Loka and is learning capoeira from him as an outlet for her frustration. And she's also investigating the mysterious disappearance of her father. Non-idle rich, indeed.


Added DiffLines:

* StepfordSmiler: Coelha. While she puts on a brave face, she's secretly always frustrated and fearful about her father's mysterious disappearance two years ago.

* TheAtoner: Angoleiro, the old man, used to constantly get into fights as a youth, showing no compassion for anyone and living a life of decadence and indulgence. Meeting his wife, Rosa changed all that and turned him into a compassionate man, so he became inconsolable with grief when Rosa died suddenly of a fever. Now, Rosa's spirit sends him dreams of people who need his help, so he can atone for the sins of his youth. His most recent dream included a young girl with a fierce capoeira style, but he couldn't see her face. He first joins up with Pantera, believing she's the one in his dream. [[spoiler: And she is, ''if'' you finish the game as a team of Angoleiro and Pantera. But if you switch to Perereca as a partner, Angoleiro believes ''Perereca's'' the one the Rosa dream meant, and Angoleiro calls himself a fool for following Pantera, can Perereca forgive an ignorant old man? It should be noted that either way he still manages to help someone: either he helps Pantera not let vengeance get the best of her, or he gives Perereca focus and direction in life.]]

* GaiasVengeance: You wouldn't know it from looking at Pantera now, but she used to be just an ordinary human anthropologist studying native peoples and the rainforests in which they live. But she became so angry at developers' carelessness towards the rainforest that she lost control of her rage and took on the identity of the "panther spirit".



* [[spoiler: MisplacedRetribution]]: Pantera's storyline kicks off when she believes Coelha is responsible for her rainforest home being illegally cleared away. Why? Because the company that's doing the clearing is called Vincentin Industries, and the head of that company is Coelha's father himself. Well, Coelha's father did in fact mysteriously disappear, and Santo is in fact investigating possible criminal ties between Vincentin Industries and a criminal gang...[[spoiler: Nope, Coelha and her father are both innocent. Maestro is responsible along with some genuinely corrupt executives within the company, and had Coelha's father "disappear" to get him out of the way. Depending on how you finish the game, either Pantera successfully gets her misplaced revenge on Coelha, or the true culprits are brought to justice instead.]]

* LovableJock: Jamaika, one of Mestre Loka's students. He showboats, he grandstands, in story modes involving him constantly wants to show off his flashiness and general awesomeness to the whole world on the "World Tour". Yet for all of that, he's a nice guy, he's doing it because he loves to perform above all (Jamaika got his start performing for tourists on beaches, and Loka noticed his talent and brought him in as a student), and he loves to please his Mestre, Loka, and do his very best, with no malice towards anyone (Jamaika's backstory mentions that he's almost like a son to Loka). In fact, during the Mestre Loka and Jamaika team "ending", Jamaika utters his one and only line of humility when Loka praises Jamaika for actually having some wisdom behind his grandstanding, and Jamaika responds that ''that's'' only because he had Loka for a mestre. (Loka express shock at actual humility he's hearing from Jamaika's mouth, so Jamaika promises not to worry, it won't happen again.)

* ICouldaBeenAContender: Gator's backstory. He almost won the 2004 UFC Championship, but was beaten by a mysterious Brazilian fighter in the last round, and said fighter then disappeared. Gator reluctantly started an alligator wrestling business to make a living with his momma, but now considers himself a sellout and wants to break back into the fighting world, swearing a rematch if he ever sees that mystery fighter again. Given who his final boss is in his story mode, it's subtly implied that the mysterious Brazilian fighter who beat him in 2004 was [[spoiler: Rochedo]].

* DeathByChildbirth: In Chompoo's backstory, Chompoo's mother died giving birth to Chompoo, and her father was bitterly disappointed because he wanted a son, and now he's been left with only a daughter. He raised Chompoo but never let Chompoo forget that she wasn't a boy. This is why Chompoo throws herself into kickboxing and does nothing but train, [[WellDoneSonGuy so she can finally earn some approval from her cold father's eyes.]]

** Also, Santo's character is a shout out to the famous capoeira movie Only the Strong. Santo has military experience in Brazil, he's helped locals take down drug dealers and gangs, and his real motivation for joining Loka's school and this World Tour is he has inside information from his superiors, whose orders he's still taking, that a notorious crime lord has connections to one of Zumbi's fighters.
