* BewareTheSillyOnes: J.J. is a small, yellow guy (even described in-game as looking like a banana) with a backwards baseball cap and using ''maracas'' as his weapon. He's also one of the potential BigBads of the game and the final boss of parallel 3.

* AllJustADream: It's heavily implied that the "awful dream" both Garian and Jack wakes up from in the introduction actually is parallel 1.
* AlreadyDoneForYou: In parallel 1, you solve puzzles to get through the Lavian ruins. In parallel 2, both Kay and Kurtliegen goes through the ruins right before Garian enters them, and thus the puzzles in the rooms are already solved.

* AlreadyUndoneForYou: Copper and Golden Castle in parallel 4.



* AmbidextrousSprite: Everyone. Gets especially notable in the case of Kurtliegen, who has one robotic arm - so half the time it's on his right, and half the time it's on his left.



** In parallel 1, [[spoiler:Kay falls into the liquid bilanium]] and even gets an on-screen obituary. [[spoiler:A giant blue rose]] erupts out of the tank, and later on Garian sees a number of transmissions that confirm that [[spoiler:she is]] alive again... only to [[spoiler:be killed by Bilan before Garian reaches her.]]

* {{Bowdlerise}}: In the original version, items that could be used for currency on Jailer's Island were cigarettes, booze and dirty magazines. In the english version, this became chocolate, nondescript bottles and nondescript magazines (still with what definitely is a pixeled bunny girl on the cover, though), and plot-related booze such as the one Garian is forced to drink became "[[GRatedDrug Jalapeno Juice]]". Places that were obviously bars in the original have become cafés.
* BrotherSisterTeam: While there's no confirmation on Sean and Meg's relation (same surname), the most likely explanation seems to be that they're partners in crime as a sibling version of an OutlawCouple. The biggest hint comes from Sean's line in parallel 5 about how everything exists for him and Meg.

In the english version, this became chocolate, nondescript bottles and nondescript magazines. They only bothered editing the graphics of the first one, though, so it's pretty clear what the bottles and magazines (still with what definitely is a pixeled bunny girl on the cover, though), and plot-related are supposed to be anyway. Plot-related booze such as the one Garian is forced to drink became "[[GRatedDrug Jalapeno Juice]]". Places that were obviously bars in the original have become cafés.

** In a way, Bilan in parallel 1 - after playing both parallels 1 and 2, it's clear that Kurtliegen was planning on doing exactly what he does in parallel 2, but Bilan threw a wrench into everybody's plans. Musashi's scene in Golden Castle starts out identically, but Bilan interrupts it in parallel 1. [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse While Miranda is presumably still in the castle.]]



** Bilan, too - those killed by him are usually described as having been killed in one hit, and Garian even describes him as capable of killing even a seasoned fighter in one strike, but when fighting him he's usually not even the hardest fight in the parallel.



** Lance looks an awful lot like Creator/StevenSeagal. In fact, his Japanese name -is- Seagal.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: All over the place, especially in parallel 1 if you play parallel 1 first (and you most likely will). But even if you manage to hit parallel 2 on your first playthrough, there's a couple things that work in reverse too, chiefly the Lavian Ruins.



* GoodBadBug: If you ask Jack to heal you for 20 points when you have between 10 and 19 points remaining, the action goes through and you end up with over four million points. To put that into perspective, it costs a total of 11600 points to increase Garian's health to the maximum of 200, from the starting point of 80. Upgrades are bought in 10-HP chunks, starting at 500 points and increasing with 100 points each time, and in a normal playthrough you'd ''maybe'' get enough points to get over 100 HP. Gaining any points after the glitch has been triggered sets your point total to the normal maximum of "only" 999999.

** Possibly a mild case of FridgeBrilliance , as the two big differeneces between the two are that [[spoiler: Carbon Garian doesn't hold back and has been covered in diamond (the carbon coating)]]

Added DiffLines:

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: J.J., the final fight of Parallel 3, cannot be captured. In Parallel 4's intro, the end of his battle sequence is replayed as it did at the end of Parallel 3. You're given him anyways to use in Parallel 4, likely because Garian's weakened state means you need a somewhat competent fighter just to get past the first fight of the parallel.

* TitleDrop: Doesn't occur until Parallel 4, of which it can be forgiven if you misconstrue it as a WordSaladTitle. [[spoiler: Carbon Garian is the "Dark Savior", the renegade who leads the prisoners freed from carbon freeze to a full-scale revolt against the jailers and warden of Jailer's Island and eventually leads them back into the rest of the world if Garian and co. don't stop them in time.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Overlaps with TravellingAtTheSpeedOfPlot towards the later stages of Parallel 4. [[spoiler: No matter how long or how short you take in saving your Bounty Hunter companions or how much time you have on the clock, Carbon Garian will always have just entered the port by the time you make it, and Garian is right behind him at the prison gates.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MauveShirt: A few depending on the parallel.
** Parallel 1 has Kay, who appears a few times [[spoiler: as she is slowly dying before asking Garian to kill Bilan to avenge her]].
** Drizzit plays this straight in Parallel 1 but plays with it in Parallel 2. He's part of an EscortMission in Parallel 1 that gives some detail on him; he's more personable in Parallel 2, but quickly gets subjected to liquid Bilanium that turns him into a monster for the rest of the timeline.
** Parallel 3 has Kurtliegen, who is more sympathetic to Garian's cause on their first meeting but is killed by DeBose right before the start of Parallel 4.

** Parallel 4 has another timed mission. Within the hour given, Garian must find all his friends before they're killed [[spoiler: by Carbon Garian]]. At certain points during the countdown, one of Garian's Bounty Hunter team will be killed. Letting some or all die nets you a different ending. [[spoiler: Oh, and the timer until the next one dies is invisible. Good luck figuring out how long your next mate has left to live if you don't intervene.]]
