* DugTooDeep:
** The Cabal on Nessus inadvertently re-activated the powerful Vex Mind, Protheon, during one of their routine excavations.
** On Io, the Cabal, once again, excavated the moon for traces of the Traveler's energy, only to attract the attention of a massive Taken army.



* LightIsNotGood: The shard of the Traveler occupying the European Dead Zone somehow transformed the Light emanating from it into TheCorruption. Earth's story focuses to some extent on purging this corrupted Light to prevent it from consuming the forest beneath the shard.

In spite of this, [[spoiler:the Shard is still potent enough to bless your Guardian and Ghost with Light, regaining the shard.powers that were lost with Ghaul's attack, and some more]].



* SealedEvilInACan: On Nessus, not only did the Cabal unearth Protheon, a powerful Vex mind armed to the teeth (at least compared to Destiny 1's Vex), but the planet was also the crash site of Exodus Black. While it contained the [[BenevolentAI helpful AI]] Failsafe, it also happened to be loaded with a large amount of SIVA, which has since evolved into a [[AIIsACrapshoot very angry and actually evil]] strain. [[OhCrap And then the Fallen get to Nessus, and find the crash site.]]

* ApocalypseHow: A Planetary type is used to fuel a Stellar one when [[spoiler:Cabal deploys their star-destroying vessel, the Almighty. It literally tears apart Mercury as fuel for its energy beam, which links it to the Sun on a quantum level to slowly sap its power and make it collapse into a supernova. Because destroying the Almighty while it is still linked to the Sun would still wipe out the entire system, the Vanguard opts to disable the Almighty's beam instead.]]

* BigNo: [[spoiler: Ghaul lets one out when the Traveler defeats his immortal form.]]
* BittersweetEnding: The main story: [[spoiler:The Guardians manage to defeat Ghaul and retake the Last City from the Cabal, while the Traveler has finally awakened and unleashes a wave of Light that spreads throughout the galaxy, re-empowers the remaining Guardians, disperses Ghaul's essence, and ushers in a second Golden Age. However, the Speaker and dozens or hundreds of Guardians are permanently dead, along with Traveler only knows how many civilians, while the remaining Guardians have to rebuild the City from the damage caused by the Cabal occupation while still being surrounded by threats.]] There are also a number of rising threats, including the previously unknown Fallen House of Dusk with its mysterious intentions. Additionally, events on Titan and Io indicate that [[spoiler:Savathûn]] has succeeded Oryx as the new God-Queen of the Hive and mistress of the Taken, and that she's coming for Earth. Finally, TheStinger reveals [[spoiler:an armada of black pyramid shaped ships, presumed to be either the Darkness or its agents, awoken by the Traveler's Light making their way towards Earth.]]

Added DiffLines:

* StealthBasedMission: The Pleasure Gardens section of the Leviathan raid. You have to navigate around the garden in search of power buffs in order to deal enough damage to the 6 Royal Beasts, and must not be detected by any of them while doing so, otherwise you go straight to the damage phase, buffed or not, with the additional threat of a TotalPartyWipe.

Added DiffLines:

* InfinityPlusOneSword: The Legend of Acrius. It's the only shotgun to have maximum impact ''and'' range, meaning it'll hit like a truck on any poor sap at a fair amount of distance (at least [[ShortRangeShotgun by shotgun standards]]). It's also acquired by completing a very long and hard quest chain that initially involves clearing the Leviathan raid and a [[TimedMission Nightfall]] Strike on [[HarderThanHard Prestige difficulty]]; all for an incomplete version of the Exotic shotgun [[labelnote:*]]Clearing those aforementioned steps gives you a watered-down Legend of Acrius with only one round in the magazine and none of the extra perks[[/labelnote]]. If you want to unlock the weapon's full potential, however, you'll have to repeatedly raid on the Leviathan, then finish it once on Prestige Difficulty.

* TheDogWasTheMastermind: [[spoiler: The Sweeping Bot is ultimately revealed to be a Mole working for Emperor Calus after completing the Leviathan Raid, which explains why he's surrounded by dead Cabal during the siege of the Tower. Apparently, he's also hunting the Arms Dealer (Bracus Zhan), according to in game descriptions]]

* NeverFoundTheBody: The Speaker disappears during the attack on the Tower in the opening mission. He's never outright stated to be dead, though, and given Ghaul's interest in the Traveler, there's a good chance he may be simply kidnapped instead of dead. Ikora doesn't take it well either way. [[spoiler:It turns out he's been kidnapped by Ghaul.]]
** [[spoiler: Unfortunately this turns out to be averted, as Speaker dies of his wounds when the Consul release him from his bonds just before the climatic battle with the player, fed up with Ghaul not just taking the light. The only upshot is that Ghaul becomes equally fed up with the Consul advocating to destroy the Traveler and simply take the light instead of Ghaul earning it and kills him in retaliation.]]

* SillinessSwitch: Emotes are more varied this time around, and the rarer ones tend to slide towards the goofy side of things. Indeed, you ccan enter the Trials of the Nine, a fairly serious and competitive [=PvP=] arena, and have your character introduce themselves by ggalloping, whereas everyone else uses their AssKickingPose or even sillier dance emotes.

Added DiffLines:

* BattleIntro: The Crucible's pre-match intro consists of a shot of the arena, followed by your team's composition, with your Guardian as its main focus. The Trials of the Nine takes it a little further by giving all eight contestants a small cutscene where they perform their assigned emote, along with showing their loadout.
