Added DiffLines:

* DisproportionateRetribution: Sure, what Pedro did was terrible, but Curtis's response (raping and killing Pedro's wife, murdering his son, and tossing his daughter's severed head to Pedro while going into detail about what he did to them) is overkill for anyone.

Added DiffLines:

* AssholeVictim: Pedro Montana was, along with Curtis Blackburn, one of the heads of the organ smuggling operation in ''Encounter'' and the backstory before betraying Curtis, which leads to Curtis getting his revenge. Interestingly, Pedro's death isn't about bringing justice, but showing that Curtis is far, far worse than Pedro could have imagined.

* TheChessmaster: Kun Lan and Harman, since many events in the game (including the creation of the Smith syndicate, much to Garcian's surprise and dismay) were set in motion by them.

* CosmicChessGame: The Smiths' different abilities and personalities are metaphors to the pieces of chess. This also explains why most problems in the game must be solved with intellectual skill instead of brute force.

to:

* ContinuitySnarl: Seemingly invoked by ''Hand in killer7'', a [[AllThereInTheManual setting book]] which contradicts itself all over the place to represent how history can get muddled and rewritten over time. This is eventually lampshaded by Jaco, who mentions that nobody really knows what happened in the Smith Syndicate Incident, one of the most confusing points in the timeline.

* BossBattleTropes: Played with heavily. While the game has its fair share of traditional bosses, there's also bosses like Julia or Curtis which play by their own rules. Notably, the fight against the Alter Ego is [[CutsceneBoss staged]], having foregone conclusions for each of the fight's rounds. And the very last boss is a ZeroEffortBoss because all other threats in the game have been gotten rid of by that point.

* EldritchLocation: If taken literally, than Harman's Room, the Vinculum Gate and the Colosseum are all this, since they make appearances behind so many otherwise ordinary doors and seemingly can make connections throughout vast distances of space. The Forbidden Room is more or less confirmed to be this, as Kun Lan states that "time here is warped".

** By the end of the game, it becomes obvious that [[spoiler:Garcian's trailerhouse]] follows similar rules, though again, potentially non-literal ones. Not only is it simultaneously linked across the world to Harman's Room, [[spoiler:which ''might be'' under the Colosseum on Battleship Island]], and the Forbidden Room, [[spoiler:which might be a suite on the top floor of the Union Hotel in Pennsylvania]], but it also has a winding basement tunnel. Yes, a basement, [[spoiler:in a ''trailer'']].

* AwesomeButImpractical: Mask De Smith is the strongest character in the game, and his grenade launchers can pretty much one-hit kill almost any enemy (except for certain bosses), and later mask upgrades can make him reload faster to not reload ''at all''. Unfortunately, killing enemies as him will grant you little to no blood.

* AwesomeMcCoolName: Large swaths of the cast, usually to the effect of "mundane first name, insane last name that synergizes with the first name in a badass way". The killer7 themselves already sound awesome, but then there's AYAME Blackburn, Kess [=BloodySunday=], Trevor Pearlharbor, ''Greg Nightmare''...
