* CriticalEncumbranceFailure: Played straight until you reach encumbrance weight, though the AP deduction depends on how much you're carrying above your normal limit.

to:

* CriticalEncumbranceFailure: Played straight until when not in combat, subverted when in combat; if you reach encumbrance weight, though the AP deduction depends on how much you're carrying above exceed your normal weight limit, you start losing AP in combat based on how far over-weight you are, but you aren't affected outside of combat until you hit your actual maximum limit.

* ShootTheShaggyDog: The ultimate ending in ''Geneforge 5'' explains that the trials and triumphs of everyone in all 5 games, including every single decision the PC made, were all just [[spoiler:the forgotten records of times long past]].

* CerebusSyndrome: In the sense of an already darkly comic series becoming bleak enough to suggest a {{Creator Breakdown}}, ultimately culminating in [[spoiler:the ''entire series'' being nothing but the final memoirs of a long dead era.]]

* BigBad: [[spoiler:Trajkov]] in ''1''.

to:

* BigBad: [[spoiler:Trajkov]] [[spoiler:Trajkov in ''1''.''1''. Ghaldring in 5: he's the FinalBoss for 4 of the 5 factions, and even in his own faction the player character and allies wind up overthrowing him in the ending.]] Otherwise averted, since the player can side with many different factions, meaning the BigBad of one run can be the BigGood of another, and vice versa.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbidextrousSprite: Averted by the player character and any [=NPCs=] who use the same models; each class has sprites for every possible facing and is always right-handed. NPC-exclusive models, however, are mirrored instead of having full facings, leading to them switching hands depending on which way they face.

Added DiffLines:

* ProperlyParanoid: Shapers know that stuff can and will [[GoneHorriblyWrong Go Horribly Wrong]], and their laboratories are set up with lab protocols that allow for instantaneous lockdowns, along with plenty of backup plans for dealing with out-of-control situations.

Added DiffLines:

* ForbiddenZone: Shapers' usual means of dealing with a situation that has GoneHorriblyWrong and is beyond salvaging is to lock down and seal off the location where it happened. The first game takes place on an entire ''island'' that has been declared Barred.

Added DiffLines:

* BioPunk: The world has ubiquitous magical OrganicTechnology that both fuels conflict and determines the course of war, transhuman genetic engineering allows people to develop abilities far quicker than they would be able to through study (at the cost of their sanity), and the system encourages developing better technology ''far'' faster than society can comfortably absorb. However, one thing the setting generally lacks is the antiauthoritarian tone of PunkPunk settings; in most of the games, you're an ''insider'' to the Shapers' society and government, and while that society is hardly just or good, it only truly becomes a CrapsackWorld when that society begins to lose control of its creations.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Taygen im ''5'' is ANaziByAnyOtherName out to exterminate all creations down to the most peaceful of serviles. He's also someone who actually has a coherent roadmap to ending the conflicts caused by uncontrolled Shaping, which are destroying Terrestria's civilization.
