* OneNationUnderCopyright: Just in case you were under the mistaken impression that the Cybrids are a threat to civilians or something, Unitech makes it repeatedly clear that their only goals are profit and political power. The Cybrids just happen to crawling around a bunch of ore-rich planets.

* In the first game, the only help you get are the Shadow and Remora you start with, and periodic unique bioderms that may or may not be better than the usual stock. You have to earn every credit yourself.
* Averted in the sequel. The faculties of a whole base are at your disposal: mining, research, and customized bioderms are all available to you. In addition, your corporation gives you generous credit infusions and unique bioderms for gaining ranks and defeating enemy corporations.

* BadBoss: Bioderms have limited lifespans. [=HERCs=] can be outfitted with self-destruct devices. Do the math.
* BoringButPractical: Once you have access to them, an army consisting only of Reapers and Juggernauts -- the two heaviest [=HERCs=] in the game.
* BrainInAJar: One of the unique Bioderms.
* BuildingIsWelding: some [[AMechByAnyOtherName HERCs]] are shown being worked on. Naturally, you can see the mechanics welding them.
* ChunkySalsaRule: Every so often, you'll be told that a Bioderm was killed by a direct hit to life support (i.e. the cockpit), leaving your HERC standing there, completely useless.

Although [=HERCs=] are expensive, ordering your pilots to blow themselves up is perfectly fine.

On top of that, most planets have hostile atmospheres.



* FogOfWar: If turned on, it is crucial for at least one (combat-weak) HERC with an advanced sensor array to play spotter.
* GangUpOnTheHuman: Half-averted in the second game. The corporations ''do'' fight amongst themselves, and even occasionally wipe each other out. Near the endgame, with three or four corporations remaining, they do tend to see you as the huge threat you are and ally against you.

* HumongousMecha: Kind of a big deal.
* ItsAWonderfulFailure: Individual missions can be failed with impunity, but if you have no [=HERCs=] and lack the funds to purchase any replacement at all, you'll be strapped to a beacon and set out as bait for Cybrids.

* SubsystemDamage: Each HERC has over a dozen subsystems, all of which can have integrity anywhere from 100% (undamaged) to 0% (blown off; unrepairable in the field). Perhaps due to engine limitations, a HERC with both legs at 0% can still stand, however.
* SuperSoldiers: Pilots of natural origins eventually became too slow. Bioderms, vat-grown, biologically modified cyborgs, replaced them. Their lifespan is ten years at best; Or maybe that's just when they stop being useful.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: Temporary example? One bioderm apparently got a brief jolt of self-preservation, refusing to enter a vat, and destroying the base in the process. And then they gave him to you.

* WithThisHerring: You seem to be the only commander that accomplishes anything worthwhile, but you have to earn every single credit yourself.
* YouHaveFailedMe: If you screw up ''really'' badly (lose all your Hercs and don't have any money to buy more), you'll be abandoned on a lifeless moon, along with with a beacon that broadcasts your position to the Cybrans.

* WeHaveReserves: The bioderms, being easily cloned and purchased, are treated as expendable (proportional to their market value, of course). A more interesting example is you, the player character. While your value to the corporation increases with your success, at the beginning, you are just one of hundreds of new commanders, and they outright tell you that your lives are worth less to them than the [=HERCs=] you command.

* ArtificialHuman: Most bioderms, though their higher thought capabilities are limited. You can have them grown, which is apparently very quick, have them trained, and recycle them. The cheapest one looks like an overgrown fetus. Not to be confused with the bioderms of ''StarSiege'', who have natural origins but were cyborged.
