** Like in ''WorldOfWarcraft'', loot is also color-coded by quality. In ascending order of potency, White items are standard, Green are uncommon, Blue are "rarified" and Purple are "purified". There's also Yellow, Orange and Red, which are the uncommon, rarified and purified versions of special reward loot found only at the end of a mission.

As experiments of this sort are known to do, the E-DNA project went [[GoneHorriblyWrong pear-shaped quickly]], causing the birth of a virus-like {{HiveMind}} known as the [[TitleDrop Darkspore]]. Assimilating some Crogenitors and killing most of them (taking the Genetic Heros with them), the few surviving Crogenitors were put onto sleeper ships, [[FlingALightIntoTheFuture to be awakened when their on-board computers had figured out how to use E-DNA without the whole Making-Darkspore result.]]

Violation of Common Sense is when the player needs to do something dumb to proceed, not when someone does something stupid and fails.
* ViolationOfCommonSense: In-universe example: [[spoiler:Xylan]], the Crogenitor who discovered Exponential DNA, infuses himself with E-DNA, believing he could be able to control the side-effects. It goes about as well as one expects; he turns into [[spoiler:The Corruptor]], [[HiveQueen ruler of the Darkspore]] and the game's apparent BigBad.

* AbusivePrecursors: Crogenitor Ingto, the creator of Necrogenesis and overseer of Nocturna was a very nasty piece of work if the results of his manipulation are any indication. For starters, he somehow managed to shatter the membrane separating the world of the living and the world of the dead, which caused horrible mutations in the various species of Nocturna. Mutations that included most Nocturni children being born agonizingly crippled and dying shortly after birth. Then, of course, is the fact he created people like Arakna, who's almost as pleasant as he is.

* SceneryPorn: Overlaps with SceneryGorn. The environments in all of the stages are very visually stunning, to the point that players get lost easily if they don't use the minimap. Especially in forest stages, what with all the (beautiful) leaves, fronds and vines obstructing the camera and whatnot.

Zero Context Example. A Mighty Glacier is 1.) strong, 2.) slow. An example must establish both.
* MightyGlacier: Heroes in the "Sentinel" class. They have high health and can take a lot of hits, but they're no pushovers when it comes to dealing damage, either. The best example is probably Titan, who has a forcefield that absorbs a certain amount of damage depending on his resist rating. He has a nice short-ranged machine gun that hits all enemies around him, dealing a nice amount of damage, and all of his attacks involve clearing away large amounts of enemies. [[GameBreaker In fact, he's so well-equipped that he can even face up against enemies of his own Genesis type.]] Sentinels are generally able to muscle their way through stages using their sheer bulk and persistent attacking power, whereas Ravagers get struck down pretty quickly and Tempests get worn out eventually. This probably explains why there are only seven Sentinel heroes.

* SquishyWizard: Heroes in the "Tempest" class. They're not as good as taking hits as [[MightyGlacier Sentinels]] are, but they have powerful ranged attacks and useful support moves that can give enemies a hard time. They're usually the most difficult to use of the heroes, which probably explains why they are the most common hero class.

Lightning Bruisers hit hard, move fast, AND are tough. Two out of three earns a "close, but no cigar."
* FragileSpeedster: Heroes in the "Ravager" class are a mix of this and GlassCannon. They're low-health and go down quickly, but they're quick as the wind and hit like a truck. Maldri is perhaps the best example, because he has an amazing attack that involves rapidly jumping between enemies 6 times, at lightning speed, dealing impressive amounts of damage.

Maldri is perhaps the best example, because he has an amazing attack that involves rapidly jumping between enemies 6 times, at lightning speed, dealing impressive amounts of damage. ** Blitz is a literal example of a LightningBruiser. He's of the Plasma genesis type, which involves manipulation of hot elements like fire and ''electricity''. And one of his attacks, called "Ride the Lightning", involves shooting across the screen to hit a cursor-targeted enemy.
