Added DiffLines:

* TVHeadRobot: [[spoiler:Mother and Father, though they only appear at the end of the second game.]] This actually makes them seem ''more'' creepy than the obviously non-human Robbie.
* UnwillingRoboticisation: [[spoilers:What Mother and Father want to do to Sister.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TheVoice: In the original game, Mother is only contacted through the texts she and Robbie exchange.
* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection: Mother explains what Robbie needs to do and offers some advice, though it quickly becomes clear that MissionControlIsOffItsMeds.
** Father in K.O.L.M. 2 is a more down-to-earth one, though it's necessary to go to the section of the building where he can't contact you.

Added DiffLines:

* BolivianArmyEnding: The end of K.O.L.M. 2: [[spoiler:Robbie is either thrown to the lower floor or destroyed, with the screen fading to white as Mother tells Sister that it's time to 'Join the family'. Did she escape? Did Robbie survive? It doesn't look good, but nothing is certain.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ColorCodedCharacters: Mother is green, Father is yellow, Robbie is gray, and Sister is white; they all even talk in these colors.

* AbusiveParents: Mother becomes increasingly irritable at Robbie as the game continues.

to:

* AbusiveParents: Mother becomes increasingly irritable at Robbie as the game continues.continues, repeatedly telling him what a disappointment and how useless he is.
* AmbiguousInnocence: Robbie would never do something ''intentionally'' evil, but he really only knows what Mother has told him and what his limited experience has taught him.



* BigBad: Mother in both games and [[spoiler:Father in the second]].
** BigBadDuumvirate: In the second, Mother and [[spoiler:Father work together]], however reluctantly.
* BigBadFriend: In the second game [[spoiler:Father]], who'd seemed to be ally, turns out to have been working with Mother the whole time.



* [[spoiler: DeadAllAlong]]: Rob comes to this realization concerning his parents during the first game's EscapeSequence:

to:

* BrotherSisterTeam: Robbie and Sis team up to get past the numerous environmental obstacles in second game- Robbie can blast open gold and purple doors that Sis can't and survive prolonged periods in even contaminated water, while Sis can past through the harsh sunlight without burning up like Robbie.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: Robbie certainly is; how old he is isn't clear, but his smallness compared to the environments and his naivety certainly make him seem quite young. Sadly, this innocence means that he doesn't realize when other people are using him for their own ends- see UnwittingPawn below.
* CloudCuckoolander: Implied by Sister's reaction to what Robbie says in the second game.
-->'''Sister:''' Robbie, you do say silly things.
* CuteBruiser: Robbie at the end of the first game; once he's been upgraded a few times, he can blast through anything that moves and survive falling into a pit of spikes without a scratch. While he's not as tough and there isn't as much combat in the second game, he's still strong enough to blast through doors and can turn himself into a living bomb to blow up weak walls.
* CuteMute: Robbie's lost his voice-box and communicates only through text-based means, though it isn't a problem until the second game and he needs to talk to Sis. [[spoiler:After he regains it, this trope no longer applies to him.]]
* DeadAllAlong:

* BigBad: Mother in both games and [[spoiler:Father in the second]].



* TheFaceless: Mother and Father are always shown as silhouettes of heads.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Robbie continues not to question Mother even when she talks about how they'll ''rule the world'' with the power he's gotten.
* LightIsNotGood: In the second game, sunlight burns Robbie away within seconds, even with the shield.



* SuperDrowningSkills: Although not instantaneous, Sis will still drown in water quickly if you don't find an air tank.

to:

* PullingThemselvesTogether: The goal of the first game is accomplish this, since your body parts were somehow scattered around the facility and you need to get them back.
* RobotKid: Robbie, who's obviously childlike despite being a moving square. [[spoiler:Turns out he ''is'' a kid, just one who was put in a robot body.]]
* SuperDrowningSkills: Although not instantaneous, Sis will still drown in water quickly if you don't find an air tank. It ''is'' instantaneous if the water is contaminated.
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: Robbie is concerningly cheerful about the prospect of fighting and killing his 'brothers' in order to survive.
* UsingYouAllAlong: In both games, though clearer in the second game where you have a definite goal: reunite Sis with Father. [[spoiler:Turns out it was so he could forcibly turn her into a robot.]]
* UnwittingPawn: Robbie in both games; [[spoiler:both times be obeys his parents to fulfill a plan he doesn't fully understand, and which turns out to be awful for everyone else.]]



* WhoNeedsTheirWholeBody: You function fine as a disembodied head at the beginning of the first game, though until you regain the lost body parts the corresponding mechanics are hampered: you move very slowly until you find your legs, the screen is blurry until you get your eyes...



* WhamLine

* WhamLineWhamLine: In the first game, when Robbie recollects about the past:




to:

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: At the end of the second game.
