** If mindless destruction gets boring there are plenty of dialogue options for Crypto to harass, threaten and insult the people he talks to. One standout example is when Crypto has to get a code from Dr. Go's old girlfriend Yuki. Depending on how Crypto chooses his word she could end up giving him a second chance or want nothing to do with him. Either option advances the mission so feel free to pick whichever.

** During a conversation with Natalia in DAH2 Crypto tries to woo her by offering to show her his "Venus Butterfly" technique. Sounds like a goofy name made up on the spot, right? [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus_Butterfly Not quite...]]

* BloodKnight: Blowing things up is basically Crypto's ''raison d'etre''.
* BlownAcrossTheRoom: The Sonic Boom does this to anything it doesn't outright vaporize. Of course, being a saucer-mounted weapon, it's more like "Blown Halfway Across The City."

*** The probing scene in question [[TheImmodestOrgasm is pretty suggestive in and of itself]]. This was before Crypto got his "package", by the way.
** Considering the amount of innuendo you get when you read the thoughts of random people, it's quite surprising that this game got away with a "T" rating.



* GiantFootOfStomping: An attack used by most of the large robot enemies, including RoboPrez.

** The first game has an unintentional example, when Pox tries to brainwash humans en masse [[AliensStealCable by broadcasting a signal from the mothership on TV]], which turned out to be [[MySkullRunnethOver too strong for human brains to process]] and caused an epidemic of exploding craniums instead. The next mission basically has Crypto cleaning up the mess.

* EmptyQuiver: One of the missions in the first game had Crypto stealing a nuke from a testing site and using it to level a nearby airfield.



** Crypto's not bad at ChewingTheScenery himself. For example, in the opening of the first game:
--> "A Cryptosporidium captured by a ''bunch of monkeys?!'' We gotta go in. We gotta crack some craniums! We gotta rescue me- him- he's gonna rescue me... We gotta- I gotta- Brains, man, '''WHEN DO I GET TO BLOW THINGS UP?!'''"

In the anal probes.first game, it didn't even have to be lethal; you could simply probe a hapless civilian repeatedly, watching them run away while uncontrollably soiling themselves.
