** Oboroqoru, the Ape God of Kyakukya, can be found in a lair somewhere near that village; he's outrageously powerful, but if you beat him, you can claim the Fist of the Ape God, an InfinityPlusOneSword for anyone who uses clubs and is strong enough to carry it.

* WastelandElder: The elder of Joppa, and he does the [[MrExposition Mr. Exposition]] bit, too. The leader of Kyakukya qualifies as well, despite being an albino ape.

* ShoutOut: The description for the hologram bracelet is a shout out to ''[[Film/TotalRecall1990 Total Recall]]''. You can also build a timecube, which is ridiculously expensive, and doesn't do anything other than give a line from the actual article. And the descriptions of several artifacts (including the Time Cube) reference Videogame/DwarfFortress.

* LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards: It does this ''twice''; mutants are quadratic compared to True Men, and psychic-oriented Esper mutants are quadratic even compared to other mutants.
** For Mutants vs. True Men, mutants get a mutation point every level, which can upgrade their mutations; or they can spend four to learn a totally new one. In the long run, this has the potential to make you vastly more powerful than the stat bonuses and tiny extra skill points per level True Men get, especially since skills tend to be dramatically weaker than mutations. True Men have access to cybernetics later in the game, but only one of them, the arm cannon, actually helps in combat; even then, it's nowhere near as valuable as the better high-level mutations.

* ArtifactOfDoom: The Amaranthine Prism, which causes people who possess it to become obsessed with it. If you equip it at the end of the questline where you're sent to retrieve it, you'll never be able to remove it, and it will steadily amplify your Ego further and further while lowering your Willpower. Going by the in-game texts about it, it contains a SealedEvilInACan named Ptoh, though there doesn't seem to be any way to interact with it beyond that.

* SkillTreeSkillTree: A downplayed example. All skills require one 'root' skill for their category. Most don't require anything else beyond high enough stats, but there are a few skills with additional prerequisite skills, especially in the Long Blade and Bows / Rifles trees.
