* SocialDarwinist: The Omar. They constantly try to improve their functionality to prepare for the harshest of environments.
-->The Omar are an application of anagenetic evolution to rapid environmental change. In solving the problem of survival on a planet disrupted by wars and self-replicating hazards, we have solved other problems.

''Invisible War'' takes place in 2072, twenty years after the original, in a world being rebuilt after the destruction of global infrastructure at the hands of the first game's protagonist, JC Denton. The World Trade Organization somehow forms a [[OneWorldOrder global government]], creating modern city-states, known as enclaves, in which the majority of the game takes place. All the world's major religions are united into a monolithic fanatical cult strongly opposing the [=WTO=]'s policies. Following a [[GreyGoo terrorist attack]] by an [[UsefulNotes/TheKnightsTemplar unknown group]] which destroys most of Chicago, the player assumes the role of Alex D (Who can, in a first for the series, be female) , a trainee at the prestigious Tarsus Academy whose support as a mercenary is sought by several factions during the course of the game.

* ILied: Inverted, Chairman Dumier at one point holds Klara Sparks hostage to your good behaviour. Should you abandon the mission to free her, he'll insist that he was bluffing and you didn't need to be so extreme.

* CuttingOffTheBranches: A rather curious case. Each of the MultipleEndings in ''VideoGame/DeusEx'' seems to a have at least partly happened. [[spoiler: JC chose to merge with Helios, but the merger caused a power surge throughout the Area 51 base that killed Bob Page and overloaded the Aquinas hub, which cut off all global communication. Result: CozyCatastrophe, the Illuminati returning to power, and a DeityOfHumanOrigin. However, Paul ''lives'' in ''Invisible War'', where he could have died in the first game.]]

* MergingTheBranches: The game uses a combination of the three possible but mutually exclusive endings of ''VideoGame/DeusEx''.

[[spoiler:JC Denton merged with Helios, but this caused global communication to suffer a breakdown and the world descend into a period of war and economic depression known as "the Collapse", the Illuminati then used the resulting chaos during this time to consolidate their power.]]

* LimitedWardrobe: For completely unexplained reasons, Paul and JC are wearing the same clothes that they did in the first. The first, which took place twenty years ago. The same clothes from twenty years ago.
** Justified in that [[spoiler: JC has been in suspended animation and Paul in cryosleep during that time.]]
*** Which more or less is the same thing...
*** Factoring in that JC Denton can control nanomachines to do basically whatever he wants, it's very likely that he can make his own clothing whenever he wants. Adding that he's also trying to elevate the entire human race to a point where everyone is connected, it's unlikely he's concerned with what color shirt to wear. Same thing with Paul.

** Or it could be the same reason as for the colored laser beams--[[IdiotBall to scare off intruders]].

** Played straight and subverted. Unlike the first game, there is no weapon skill progression, so your combat skills are at max from the very beginning of the game. At the same time, the Universal Ammo system makes a full Rambo run less viable than the first game, as you ''will'' run out of ammo unless you use at least some stealth.
