** While the game tends to stray away from flat-out telling the player how to do something, if they stick around for long enough without grasping something they need to proceed, the game will bring up a dialog box explaining what they need to do; for example, if you don't figure out you can charge up the Virs' jump you'll get trapped in a little pit and the game will tell you about charging up the jump after a few seconds.
* ApocalypseHow: The destruction of Planet Syndomera is mentioned--according to Atomic Maszylg's database entry, it was scorched by radioactive fire.

* GoneHorriblyWrong: [[spoiler: Exgal]], who Savant created to [[spoiler: simulate a Cyber weapon that uses powerful dark magic]]. What makes it go wrong however [[spoiler: is that Savant programmed it to have dark powers impossible for Boki to copy.

Not only does she copy Exgal's dark abilities, but she combines them to create ''something'' that crashes the FLUX and leaves her unconscious]].

Savant claims that they are too complex to be properly simulated, being fully intelligent, sapient entities.

However, the game still provides hints to their existence, such as some of the graffiti in World 10 and a few database entries. On the artist/writer's [[http://raibys.deviantart.com/ Deviant Art page]] you can see a few designs for them.

* JokeCharacter: There are two modifiers/cheats that allows you to play as either a Yinimro or a Yolomo, which aren't too bad (Yinimros can float indefinitely, have short-range teleport, and they shoot out the powerful Gear weapon, while Yolomos can do uppercuts and can also float, albeit slowly). Activate both, however, and you'll play as a Vopila. It can't jump, it can be flipped over easily, and its ''only'' attack is the recoil-heavy Cavitation Beam. Good luck playing as one. Did I also mention that you can't get any powerups while playing as them? Up until 1.6, that even included health!

* TryEverything: ''Encouraged'' -- the more you stick with one combination of powers, the weaker that particular combination gets, so frequently swapping out powers and exploring the myriad ways destruction can be wreaked is rewarded. Even Astral does this. Once you use a specific attack, it immediately drops to its weakest power level (and doesn't even have any elemental magic). This means that you have to use other attacks for a while to let the first one recharge. Spamming just ''one'' attack is completely innefective.

** If you get severely injured in the tutorial (which you will most likely have to be trying to do, considering it's the freaking tutorial) you actually won't be able to go below 1 health, meaning you can't die. This changes the conversation with Savant after the level, where he reminds you that the rest of the game won't be so easy.
** Also, it's possible to beat the Very Large Robots level without piloting one of the Virs mechs. This will cause Boki to complain about the level's difficulty, and Savant to hint that you should have just used one of the robots instead.
** The whole Arikan battle is chock-full of this.
*** Beat Arikan with any cheat, and they'll call you a dishonorable scum. Lose to them the same way, and they'll berate you.
*** If you beat Arikan with a Virs, the ending dialogue is different than the usual "You dishonorable scum!"
*** Should you successfully defeat Arikan without taking damage, there is a special line of dialogue.
*** Lose to Arikan using any construct, and they'll call you a traitor.
*** Start a battle against Blade Arikan with a Yolomo of the Sun Fist, and he'll challenge you to see if fists are better than swords.
*** Return to the level select after losing to Arikan, and [[IShallTauntYou they will mock you.]]
** The ways you could refuse Arikan's challenge yield interesting results. Here's a list of things you can do to get different reactions:
*** Shoot them, and they'll ask if you'll fight with your hands.
*** Jump on Blade Arikan, and he'll get pissed off and called you immature.
*** Kick Blade Arikan, and he'll ask if you'll fight with your feet.
*** Wait for too long, and they'll get impatient.
** If you exit the game immediately after running it without doing anything, Savant will point it out and ask if you ran it accidentally.
** If you exit the game after downloading an update, Savant will say he expects you only did so in order to apply said update and come right back.
** One of the messages displayed when you exit the game is actually the exact amount of explosions the player caused.
** The Throne Gehligrukai's tune actually changes to fit the music currently playing. Yes, that includes the Arikan-only battle music that doesn't appear anywhere else by default.
** True to its name, Fireworks (Explode+Split+Remote) always changes color every time you fire it.
** One of the Burst Krijyl's dialogue has it mention the actual time of the player's system clock.
** Speaking of Burst Krijyl, it has a special win condition that involves [[spoiler:Mirror]]. Its hard mode upgrade, Hypercube, is also vulnerable to this but [[spoiler:is pushed to the third phase instead of dying instantly and gives special dialogue]]. Note that without cheats this is only possible in Marathon mode, though the level directly before it has the power required.
** Dying in the first mission will give you an extra dialogue.
** The dialogue in the mission after Penguin Vault varies depending on how many alarms you've triggered. [[spoiler:The dialogue in Demolished District, a whole four worlds later, draws from that as well -- if no alarms were tripped back then, Boki will claim it's time for super spy Boki again!]]

Note that without cheats this is only possible in Marathon mode, though the level directly before it has the power required.
** Dying in the first mission will give you an extra dialogue.
** The dialogue in the mission after Penguin Vault varies depending on how many alarms you've triggered. [[spoiler:The dialogue in Demolished District, a whole four worlds later, draws from that as well -- if no alarms were tripped back then, Boki will claim it's time for super spy Boki again!]]

* ChildSoldier: Heavily implied to be the plan for Boki. FLUX is a military training program, and Savant thinks Boki has the power to save Zoincailla, which is why he made a customized version (this game) to train her.
* ClimaxBoss: Arikan isn't the FinalBoss anymore, but they're still built up over the course of one world and are some of the more unique and exciting battles in the game.

* CombinatorialExplosion: The amount of distinct weapons in this game is just ''staggering''. There are 165 possible weapon combinations (120 triple weapon combinations + 45 double weapon combinations) ''for Boki alone''. With Savant, even though he can only combine two weapons, the combination order matters, which gives him 90 combinations. That's not even counting the 10 base weapons, solo weapons, boss-specific weapons, the flame/freeze talisman effects, and the different visual variations (that carry over to the combination) of the weapons depending on what enemy you got them from.

* CosmicHorrorStory: ''Hoo boy.'' Not only do we have [[spoiler:Exgal, wielder of supreme dark magic]], there's also the Cybers, who ''built and control'' said spoilered entity. All of the bosses in the game answer to these beings. The creepiest thing about them is that no one knows anything about their plans, nor where they came from, and they've been at war with the races of Zoincailla for ''millenia''.

All of the bosses in the game answer to these beings.

The one consistent thing anyone knows for sure is that if they detect the presence of Entanma like Boki, they'll be captured and converted into a Cyber themselves with none of their personality or feelings left intact, but still self-aware.



* CrypticBackgroundReference: Since the game takes place in a training simulation, a lot of the cultures, planets, and alien species of the setting are only mentioned in passing.

Added DiffLines:

* StoryToGameplayRatio: On the high end of gameplay. While there's cutscenes in the games, they typically are less than six textboxes in length between every four missions and the beginning or after a boss fight. There's an interesting story here, but a lot of the particulars are optional or easily skipped.
