An inspired twist on the "[[TheOnlyOne lone warrior fights against impossible odds]]" story rehashed by so many other video games, Iji is a freeware action/adventure platform game created by DanielRemar. Iji is a 20-year-old girl who accompanies her family on a tour of the D.C.M.F.P.R. Research Facility, where her father works, when strange lights lance through the clouds outside.

* ButtMonkey: Asha, in a meta way. With his [[SillinessSwitch Scrambler]] dialogue (PEW PEW PEW!) and some video subtitles DanielRemar completely makes fun of him. And his {{Leitmotif}} is actually [[spoiler:a distorted rant about beer:]]

* CrazyPrepared: Getting the best ending requires Iji to prepare for something she couldn't possibly anticipate normally, and to ignore an instruction she receives earlier on[[note]]Dan no longer gives this instruction in version 1.7.[[/note]]. This averts GuideDangIt, as meeting certain conditions will lead Iji to realize how to get the ending on her own, and it's also possible to work out through GenreSavvy or if you've played the game before.

* [[EarthAllAlong Origin All Along]]: Doesn't really happen to ''Iji'', but to the Tasen, who didn't realize that Earth was actually their [[spoiler: and the Komato's]] birth planet Origin until ''after'' they hit it with an Alpha Strike.

* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Somewhat. Iosa is the only known being to survive a full force Alpha Strike without a bit of damage, and is known to be the most powerful [[spoiler:Komato]] in the Imperial Army even without any armor. [[spoiler:You end up killing her by shooting her in the face, or letting an Assassin with a grudge against Iosa stab her in the head, after stunning her with kicks and deactivating her nanofield.]]

[[spoiler:You end up killing her by shooting her in the face, or letting an Assassin with a grudge against Iosa stab her in the head, after stunning her with kicks and deactivating her nanofield.]] To be fair, however, it's made abundantly clear that, while Iosa ''is'' the most powerful [[spoiler: Komato]] warrior, it's only half due to her skills. The other reason is how insanely powerful her nanofield is. The entire fight with her is spent just trying to take it down, which is only possible [[spoiler: because while nanofields block ranged weaponry and attacks from those without nanofields, ''with'' a nanofield, Iji is able to use her incredible strength to its full advantage and daze Iosa long enough to crack and deactivate her nanofield. From there, she's just as squishy as any other creature.]]

* ApocalypseHow: A Class 2, though Iji thinks it's only a localized apocalypse, as Dan tells her that only the facility is under attack, though any GenreSavvy player knows he's full of shit. By the end, [[spoiler:you're trying to stop a Class 5.]] The [[spoiler:Komato]] are also working towards being able to pull off a Class X, and you can get a weapon made to test one of the concepts involved.

** It also randomly inserts "my boy" and "my stuff" into lines. According to the game's creator, he wanted to put in YouTubePoop references while avoiding overt, cliched MemeticMutation. All of Asha's lines are replaced by various sound effects, symbols, and emoticons, such as "TOOT TOOT", "PEW PEW PEW", ">:(" and so on. This makes him seem ''completely batshit'', and the fact that the other characters understand him completely is even funnier. All of his logbook entries are changed to have "* indecipherable scribbles* " as their content too.
