* AntiVillain: Sure, Crypto is annihilating humankind, but he has a better reason than most alien invaders, he's trying to save his own species.

* NamedAfterTheirPlanet: Furons from the Planet Furon.
** However, in ''Destroy All Humans!'', their home planet is known as, 'Gourta'. Trope averted in this case.

* NoBiologicalSex: The Furons' penchant for gratuitous nuke usage ended up getting their genetic code degraded by their own weapons, leaving them without genitalia and therefore unable to reproduce except by cloning. This is also the reason why Crypto's "package" from the second game is a pretty big deal for them.



* ObviousBeta: Several aspects ''Big Willy Unleashed'' and ''Path of the Furon'' seem unfinished. Notably, in ''Big Willy Unleashed'', whenever characters speak they're almost always shown from the back, so as to cover up the fact that their lips aren't actually moving.

* LightningGun: Crypto's initial weapon, the ''Zap-O-Matic''. While it's not as spectacularly destructive as most of his arsenal, it still fries humans very well, especially when upgraded with ChainLightning capabilities. It also doesn't require ammo.

%%* TelepathicSpacemen* TelepathicSpacemen: The Furons have evolved PsychicPowers over the ages, allowing them to read minds, hypnotize lesser beings, and telekinetically throw enemies around. Crypto gets a lot of mileage out of all three.



* ViolationOfCommonSense: During the fight with Kojira, Pox eventually notices that the beast's underside is [[AttackItsWeakPoint considerably less armored]] than its back. As a result, it takes more damage from Crypto's personal weapons than the ones mounted on the saucer. That's right: you're supposed to get out of the high-tech flying saucer and fight the {{Kaiju}} ''on foot''.

This actually ''does'' make the fight easier, since Kojira will focus its attacks more on the humans (given that they're bringing in tanks and all) than on Crypto.

Added DiffLines:

** Extracting human brain stems takes the form of Crypto telekinetically [[YourHeadAsplode making a person's head explode]] and then picking up the brain left behind. While generally used on corpses, there's nothing that says the victim has to be dead; in fact, in the first game, brain stems extracted from living people often yielded ''more'' DNA.
