* EnemyCivilWar: Each of the enemy factions in Defiance represents a different extreme, so you're bound to occasionally catch a break when the bugs and raiders kill each other instead of you. Hellbugs are animalistic and hated by everybody (it doesn't help that they're the game's GoddamnedBats), mutants are human supremacists who have been driven insane by the Votan's terraformers; raiders are multiracial bandits who like to kill everyone for scrip, Dark Matter is Defiance's version of [[TheElderScrollsVSkyrim The Thalmor]] and make deals with the other factions only to backstab them constantly, the 99ers are cyborg miners who have gone insane, the Volge are blood knights who want to conquer everyone, the afflicted are The Infected, the Scrappers are The Terminators (on low budget!), and the Grid are the Borg. You've got every type of basic enemy and they all hate each other almost as much as they hate [[EverythingTryingToKillYou YOU]]. Meanwhile, your boss is trying to terraform the planet back to the way it was, save the Earth, and commit mass genocide to stop the CrapsackWorld you constantly fight in. That makes you the villain protagonist who saves the weak and kills everyone else, so it's no surprise that enemies will prioritize ark hunters, yet still have to fight each other due to irreconcilable differences.

* MarathonLevel: The [[ChristmasEpisode Solstice Strike major arkfalls]]. Like most majors, you do four minors before doing a final, boss one. They're already tough due to the fact they use the Volge and love to spawn several [[EliteMook Viscera]], already bullet sponges on their own; however in place of a BossBattle the final one is simply wave after wave of Volge, likely to be at Ark level due to the number of players doing them. The final arkfall alone takes around ''ten minutes.'' Add to that the ten minutes you likely spent clearing the minors and this is one grueling arkfall.

** Actually, Afflicted are people infected with the viral hemorrhagic fever seen in the episode ''If I Ever Leave This World Alive''. However, in the case of the game, instead of killing the hosts, it got cranked [[UptoEleven Up to Eleven]] by some sort of mutation.

In fact, in the trailer advertising the Afflicted storyline, you hear an Afflicted begging for help before Cooper puts a round in it's head.

* TheReveal: <PLEASE MAKE THIS A NOTE> [[spoiler:During the Battle of Defiance, the enemy was on the verge of curb stomping the few remaining soldiers bunkering at the fort, so Nolan, Jon, and a few others made the most significant decision of the series: they used a WMD, the Ark Core, which is a copy of the McGuffin Set that you've been chasing the whole game. Which would have been fine, aside from the unholy suffering of the thousands of soldiers and few civilians who were utterly blown away (one of them survived, and he was NOT HAPPY), if not for the fact that THE ARK CORE IS THE CENTRAL PROCESSING UNIT OF THE ARKS. Cue arkfalls. They were trying to stop a racist army from slaughtering millions of innocents out of spite, and ended up causing the apocalypse instead. Jon and company have kept this secret until they realized that Nim didn't have to be a rocket scientist to activate a second Ark Core and murder everyone.]]

** The Dark Matter enemies know they outnumber you, and know how to use it against you. If you're inside, they'll us their numbers to drive you back and into a corner where you can't escape. Outside, they'll circle around you and get you in a crossfire.
