** For Tower Defense genre in general, '''especially''' in ''Defense Grid 1''. You might want to spend your resources as soon as you can and build as many towers as you can, but if you do it there you probably '''won't''' earn a Gold medal even if you win with all cores in the base. The game encourages the player to use as less resources as possible and play conservatively using them only when really necessary; the more resources you have, the more you will earn via interest, and in the end it might be the difference between a Silver or Gold medal in the rank. Both games also have "rewind" button which allows players to go back to a previous checkpoint, encouraging even further players to test tactics using as less towers as possible.

The game encourages the player to use as less few resources as possible and play conservatively using them only when really necessary; the more resources you have, the more you will earn via interest, and in the end it might be the difference between a Silver or Gold medal in the rank.

* AirborneMook: Darts and Mantas. Both of which do not take the usual route which the other mooks do, and instead travel another fixed path and if they manage to steal one of the cores, they're considered to be lost immediately and can't be recovered even if you manage to shoot them down before they escape.

The second game doesn't have them, however.

* DungeonBypass: Later levels have you build TheMaze yourself using towers. [[AirborneMook Flying enemies]] go right over it, and instantly leave the map when they reach your power cores.

The Landing Pods are even worse, they're dropped ''in front of your cores'' and spawn enemies right there and then.


Added DiffLines:

** Landing Pods, which are spawned ''right next to your cores'' and start spawning mooks from there, effectively allowing them to [[DungeonBypass traverse half your defences]]!

** Command towers act as a counter StealthExpert revealing enemies with stealth within its range allowing towers to attack them earlier and also increases the resource income.

* RegeneratingHealth: The appropriately-named Regenerator has this- but only when it's not being damaged. Keep it hurt at all times with the Concussion tower if you don't want them to heal themselves.

* UnexpectedGameplayChange: In ''Defense Grid 2'', Power Outage challenges forces the player either to keep their cursor close to the towers or build them close to the core housing, otherwise they won't even activate and shoot aliens.

Added DiffLines:

* RandomDrop: In an odd fashion in ''Defense Grid 2'': Every time you finish a map you have a chance of earning a tower item which varies from 01 to 05, you may earn an item of 01 or sometimes, in very rare cases, an item at grade 05. Playing on higher difficulties and longer maps significantly increases the chance of earning better, and rarer, tower items, though.
