Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: Via the games variants system, Clan mechs that appear in the roster will use their Inner Sphere reporting name for the basic form, and their Clan name for the alternate loadout, such as the Thor and Summoner being treated as wildly different loadouts on the same chassis.

Both games featured online multiplayer over XboxLive in the form of modes like Deathmatch and CaptureTheFlag. The second game also had a persistent "Conquest" mode in which players battled for control of territories over the course of many matches.

There was also an installment on the NintendoDS, ''[=MechAssault=]: Phantom War.'' It is unrelated story-wise to the Xbox games, instead set many years later after the collapse of the HPG Network and staring a named protagonist, Mechwarrior Vallen Price. [[SoOkayItsAverage It was less well-received]] then the Xbox games, due to a lack of multiplayer and issues with the controls.

* ChargedAttack: [[{{BFG}} PPCs]] work this way as opposed to a cool-down as seen in the MechWarrior series. The heavy missile weapons used by certain mechs, possibly Arrow [=IVs=], also work like this.

* DefeatEqualsExplosion: Even more so than the mechwarrior games. Every mech that dies explodes in a violent explosion and can easily cause a massive chain reaction if many others(even you) are near it

* {{Overheating}}: As in MechWarrior, weapons generate heat when fired, with EnergyWeapons generating much more then ballistics or missiles. Unlike in Mechwarrior, however, overheating your 'Mech will not force a shutdown or [[StuffBlowingUp blow it up-]] you will simply be unable to fire until the heat meter drops out of the red.

* PowerUp: The most visible indication of this game's arcade-style nature, in contrast to MechWarrior. [[HealThyself Green health pickups]] abound, as well as [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience blue, red and yellow]] ammunition pickups, which power up your energy, missile and ballistic weapons, respectively.

Added DiffLines:

* BossInMookClothing: Enemy mechs can be this, especially when you're fighting multiple ones at once.


Added DiffLines:

* FinalBoss: The Ragnarok mech. Not only does it have Gauss Cannons, the best lasers, and a weapon called the ''magma gun'', it also has an energy shield. Later becomes BossInMookClothing when the final level of the second game has you fight multiple ones.

* DismantledMacGuffin: The Data Core found at the end of the first game proves to be one of a set of five, created by Jerome Blake, the founder of the [=ComStar=] company. Exactly what they contain is unclear, but they are used several times to [[PlugAndPlayTechnology supercharge current technology.]]
