* EscortMission: Basically the premise of the game, but Ninja Theory has assured us it game. Fortunately, Trip avoids directly participating in combat (which negates the need to defend her) and can offer useful support, and she keeps up with Monkey quite well when he's not carrying her. For that matter, Monkey can lift her effortlessly, so she doesn't slow him down, and rarely does she go somewhere he isn't going (since that would not fall into defeat the usual problems with purpose of him being there). All in all, the game is designed less as a traditional escort missions.mission and more as a game where the player controls two characters with complementing skill simultaneously.

''Enslaved'' is a story set one hundred and fifty years in the future where [[AfterTheEnd a global war has devastated the Earth.]] In this future, nearly the entire human race has been eradicated, but [[MechanicalMonster robots]] still plague the land. Although they are from a [[LostTechnology bygone era]], they are still following their orders to eradicate the humans. The storyline is loosely based on the ancient Chinese novel ''{{Journey to the West}}''.

** Averted with the story the game is based upon. Outside of Monkey and his iconic equipment (staff, cloud, headband) and the names of the three main characters, the game leaves out many of the elements that were originally in JourneyToTheWest, such as the remainder of Tripitaka's party, Monkey and Pigsy's transformation abilities, Pigsy's weapon (a magical rake instead of a gun), any of the monsters or foes the characters encounter, and the overarching story of a pilgrimage to bring back knowledge.
