* NotSoDifferent: One of the major themes of the game. At first, it seems like the Chosen are a BlueAndOrangeMorality invasion force from another dimension. But as you slaughter their ranks you'll notice that they act exactly like the human enemies of the game, with sligOpponents can be executed (not that you get to see many opponents with instanced PvP having been PutOnABus). And some V.I.P. enemies will be captured alive thanks to your battleframe's non-lethal weapon settings - even if you shot them in the head with a nuclear-neurohtly different tactics, and slightly different goals. They even have their own civil wars in the middle of an invasion, just like the Accord and gangs do. On the human side, lots of villains call out the player character for being just as bloodthirsty and violent as they are, which is usually an accurate description for a casual gamer: the Somalian look-alikes are trying to survive while the Accord starves humanity's remaining lower-class citizens (the ones you did quests for in Copa), Black Hills gang members consist of former mercenaries who stopped fighting for the good of humanity and started fighting for exp, money, and fun (much like the player), and the poachers will call out the player on all the death and suffering they've caused other beings while fighting to protect a few dumb animals (and sometimes, the player will kill innocent animals in their downtime for fair game).

* SadisticChoice: In the BackStory. Consul Nostromo was the captain of the Arclight on what would have been it's maiden voyage. When disaster struck and the ship fell out of orbit, all he could do was decide where it was going to hit: heavily populated Rio De Janeiro, or Fortaleza, which had significantly fewer people... but was home to his own wife and daughter. [[TheNeedsOfTheMany He chose Fortaleza,]] and [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone hasn't been the same man since.]]

* GangUpOnTheHuman : [[AvertedTrope Averted]]; the aggressive wildlife, bandits/Ophanim and Chosen will all fight each other. Humanoid targets will also stop attacking players to fight back against wildlife that wandered by. This is even [[LampshadedTrope lampshaded]] in an early mission where you drop pheromones in a bandit camp. There's a mission where you need to [[EnemyMine bolster the bandit's morale]] against the [[BigBad Chosen]]. Later on, the Chosen will deploy mining thumpers and be completely swarmed by angry wildlife, just like it would be for players.
