* ATeamFiring: Inexperienced characters are notoriously inaccurate in combat, almost to the point of uselessness against skilled and/or armored opponents. However, this no longer applies once a character gets weapon training or [[ImprobableAimingSkills general experience]].
** Of course, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbionese_Liberation_Army#Move_to_Los_Angeles_and_police_shootout there's a reason for that]].
** Amusingly, particularly inexperienced/unskilled characters -- friendly and hostile -- have a tendency to be inaccurate when ''punching'', leading to incidents where an enemy takes a swing at you and accidentally punches a random bystander, kicking off a huge brawl.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking[=/=]BadassBookworm: Leadership ability is tied to both the Juice level of a character and their Leadership and/or Seduction skill. The former grants [[TookALevelInBadass substantial combat bonuses]] even if it was gained exclusively by e.g., computer hacking.
* ArbitraryHeadcountLimit: Averted; the number of people a squad member can recruit is determined by their rank and certain skills, and the number of people the Squad can recruit total is technically infinite -- recruiting people to recruit more people to recruit more people like some sort of guerrilla warfare pyramid scheme.

* BavarianFireDrill: Wearing the [[DressingAsTheEnemy correct disguise]] and fast-talking is enough to blend in as a doctor or police officer. [[SerialEscalation Or a judge]].
** This method of infiltration has a benefit compared to using a high stealth skill and ninja suit: if the conservatives at the infiltrated site are alarmed, you can still talk yourself out of a fight by acting like you belong there.
* [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil Being Tortured Makes You Liberal]]: The end result of any kidnapping not ended prematurely by escape, the police, or death of the hostage.

* CardboardPrison: It's relatively easy to repeatedly break someone out of prison, although the escapee will always be wanted for breaking out, and this is the one crime that no lawyer, no matter how slick, can ever get you acquitted for.
** In the later releases, it is very difficult to get an acquittal of such a charge, and even if acquitted, you are still sent back to finish the previous sentence.
** The latest official version has an exploit where your prisoners could simply walk out of prison (after assigning them to a squad). The later community version removes the exploit.

* StockholmSyndrome: As time passes, kidnapped conservatives will start liking their captor. Really fast if your psychology skill is high.
** Actually, this depends partly on how the captor(s) treat the prisoner. If you beat the crap out of them constantly and refuse any verbal contact, for example, they're not likely to react very positively.
* [[StrawCharacter Strawman Political]]: Played for laughs. The game treats [[DayOfTheJackboot Conservatives as evil fascists]] and [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified Liberals as the second coming]]. Both liberal and conservative ideological tenets are deliberately exaggerated to the point of implausibility for the sake of comedy - the game's 'liberals' have such goals as ''granting animals full personhood'', and the game's 'conservatives' ''burn buildings where free speech has happened'' if not stopped.
** Although in this universe, the dogs and mutants may not have human intelligence, but they can use and understand simple English and carry out missions. The animals thing is definitely not as unreasonable as it sounds.
* SuicideByCop: In earlier versions of the game, this was the standard method of freeing up space in the squad. As of the latest version, you can either release (i.e. fire) or [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness execute]] unwanted squad members instead.
** Each of these options has a potential downside, too - if a squad member with low Heart is fired, they might very well go to the police, while executing a squad member has a chance to cause a significant (and ''permanent'') stat drop in the person doing the executing.

Internally there are two values, conservative and liberal, the difference being the latter is chosen as opposed to birth sex. The interface always shows the liberal one as the LCS doesn't even consider the conservative one. If Gay Rights are liberal enough the liberal one won't even require a disguise check.

* RealityEnsues: Death Squads end up being counterproductive for the police. While they may be deadly they lack any armor and only have a terrifying uniform working with them. Given that a simple loitering charge can lead to death, one needs to be a very good runner to escape, and a failed attempt means almost certainly being hit with automatic weapon fire it becomes far safer for petty criminals and activists to just shoot them dead on the street before they get executed for petty crimes or non-crimes. And then repeating the process if recognized by any other Death Squad members. Like many arch-conservative policies they often solve themselves without LCS intervention, whether due to [[EvenEvilHasStandards public disgust]], or it being clear that it just isn't working.
