* TheUnfairSex: The game tends to swing towards this with Trip's enforced slavery over Monkey.

* CoveredWithScars: Monkey, of the decorative and generic kind. Although not explained in-game, Nina Kristenson of Ninja Theory elaborates that the swirling designs on his torso [[{{Every Scar Has A Story}} are war scars he drew on himself after major battles.]] Considering the sheer amount he has, your mileage may vary as to [[{{Badass}} whether]] that's [[{{Crowning Moment of Awesome}} awesome]] [[{{Ax Crazy}} or]] [[{{Iron Woobie}} not.]]

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Early in the game, Trip and Monkey witness a self sufficient aquariam in the midst of a jungle infested zoo, with [[WideEyedIdealist Trip]] using it as an example of how her own community is self-sufficient in the wasteland, only for [[KnightInSourArmour Monkey]] to point out it doesn't matter how secure a community is if it can't deal [[OutsideContextVillain with outside factors that threaten it.]] [[spoiler: Seconds later, a machine crashes through the aquariam, killing the fish inside. When Trip and Monkey eventually reach her home, they indeed find it destroyed by [[BigBad Pyramid's mechs]], the outside factor in this case.]]

* NostalgiaFilter: [[DeconstructedTrope Used more seriously]] [[JustifiedTrope than other examples.]] [[spoiler: [[BigBad Pyramid]] lived during the period before the world went to hell, and is so obsessed with bringing it back that he forges a machine based slave empire that has the slaves plugged into his memories into what the period was like.]] [[HannibalHasAPoint While he nearly manages to convince Monkey of his righteousness,]] [[KirkSummation Monkey rightfully points out that he's destroying the present and the future over something that no longer exists.]]

* OutsideContextVillain: Trip and Monkey are survivors trying to reach Trip's community, with talks of how the world was and what it could be generally being used as polite banter and wishful thinking. [[spoiler: [[BigBad Pyramid]] is a man stuck in the past who wants everyone else to join him there, justifying his efforts to enslave the populace as giving them hopes and dreams they wouldn't have otherwise.]] When the two sides eventually meet, it feels like people of different time periods and countries trying and failing to communicate.

Added DiffLines:

* MinimalistCast: In contrast to the [[SceneryPorn expansive scenery]] and [[EverythingTryingToKillYou endless legions of killer robots,]] there turns out to be a total of four members in the main cast. Trip and Monkey spend much of the story LonelyTogether, Pigsky joins up in the second half of the game, and despite his importance to the story, [[spoiler: [[BigBad Pyramid]]]] only makes his appearance and says his few lines at the ''very end'' of the odyssey.


Added DiffLines:

* SmallRoleBigImpact: [[spoiler: [[BigBad Pyramid]]]] makes his appearance only at the end of the story, and in a cutscene no less, but the machines roaming the landscape, the slave ships, the headband that Trip uses on Monkey, [[spoiler: the destruction of Trip's community,]] can all be connected to him.

Added DiffLines:

* TotalitarianUtilitarian: [[spoiler: [[BigBad Pyramid.]] His plan essentially revolves around forecfully hooking the people living in the wasteland on the drugs that are his memories, but he justifies it on the grounds that the wasteland is a hellhole that is unlikely to recover, so he's at least providing people with a dream of something better that will distract them from pain and infighting.]]
