* AppliedPhlebotinum: [[{{Nanomachines}} nanotechnology]] explains just about all the game mechanics, from Iji's weapon, TranslatorMicrobes and DeflectorShields to the [[RPGElements attribute leveling system]]. In an aversion of GameplayAndStorySegregation, it's possible to hack yourself, causing Iji's security system to reset her attributes to prevent tampering by the, uh, "Malicious [[TheCracker Cracker]]".

Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler: EarthAllAlong: The Tasen and Komato are both evolved from an ancient race that once lived on Earth (or "Origin", as they call it) and left to become a spacefaring race ''long'' before Humans even appeared. In fact, they left Earth so long ago that the Tasen actually had ''no idea'' that the planet they [[KillSat Alpha Struck]] used to be their homeworld.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: [[spoiler: The Komato Empire is incredibly militaristic, and launch a genocidal war against the Tasen as the latter rejected the Komato's increasingly militaristic society.]]

* SpiritualSequel: To ''SystemShock'', but also to another, scrapped game Daniel Remar made, satirically titled ''Killman''. It's available in [[http://www.remar.se/daniel/scrappack2.php the second scrap pack]].

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: [[spoiler:Komato Berserkers]] can spam their Resonance weapons (compared to the massive downtime between Iji's Resonance shots), leading to such hilarious situations as one of them vs a Tasen Elite in melee range. Many enemies will also simply duck under rockets and other projectiles, limiting their usefulness. And, of course, the Assassins, who have ''automatic'' Resonance Reflectors and are very difficult to hit with other weapons. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in a logbook, where ''enemies'' call Iji a cheating bastard because she can shoot any bullet from her weapon without warmup time or any kind of warning!



* TheCracker: Three Komato leave logbooks on how to get advanced weapons if the advertisement logbooks don't tell you (in technical terms, they're [[http://www.catb.org/jargon/html/W/warez-d00dz.html warez d00dz]]). By the time you reach Sector X, [[spoiler:they've been arrested for illegal Cracking and get sentences varying from slaps on the wrist (guard duty) to prison.]]



* TheLawOfConservationOfDetail: Partially averted. Many logbooks and the dialogue triggered by [[spoiler:most of]] Mia's ribbons aren't related to gameplay or the direct plot and merely add more atmosphere. [[spoiler:Dan's comments about strange noises in his control room, however, are NOT there for show.]]

* PurposefullyOverpowered: The [[spoiler:Massacre]] solidly belongs here, what with it being usable only in the battle against [[spoiler:[[ClimaxBoss General Tor]], during a flawless PacifistRun]]. Additionally, several logs mention the consequences of letting it be misused as one of the worst fiascos in Komato history.
