* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Lionel wastes no time in trying to bribe you to let him live, and his cold dedication to the company [[spoiler:resulted in the mutilation of a scientist's body, which is what provoked her daughter to light the fire]]. Downplayed, in that he's also the most cool-headed of the four emptloyees and never shows any actual malice-[[FaceDeathWithDignity nor does he get upset with you in the bad endings, where his death is inevitable.]]

* DeadpanSnarker: Lionel is usually quite professional, but he can get rather snarky. If a choice between saving him or Troy is coming up, he chimes in after Troy's [[DeathSeeker request to die]] with something like "I agree, you should definitely save me." And then, in his ending:

** All of the characters, to some extent (minus the Visitor, who's a [[FeaturelessProtagonist Featureless Protagonist]]):
*** Troy [[spoiler:says he shot the two guards and started the fire. He didn't. He's a [[DeathSeeker Death Seeker]] who wants to see everyone's suffering end, not just his own.]]
*** Christina [[spoiler:actually killed the guards and set the fire, but she did it to stop the Fenix Corporation's experiments and she mentions that the building was supposed to be "nearly empty". She often gives as good as she gets with Steve, but in the end she, too, pleads with you to spare Steve's life.]]
*** Lionel comes down hard on the 'jerk' end, being a dour, self-centered [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Corrupt Corporate Executive]], but even he [[spoiler:faces his own death with dignity in the Bad Endings.]]



* MentalTimeTravel: [[spoiler:While traveling forward in time and then going back works normally, traveling backwards, by itself, doesn't. Instead, it apparently destroys your body, but dumps you into any number of alternate selves in alternate universes - and it's implied that the body you take over kicks out the consciousness in it, which goes to ''another'' reality.]]
** [[spoiler:There is a catch with traveling forward, though - your consciousness abandons your body, leaving it lifeless until you come back. The visitor points out that this makes travel ahead by more than a few hours useless, as your body would rot before you returned. Lionel admits this and states that Fenix is working on ways to keep the body intact. "Freezing seems promising."]]

* TitleDrop: [[spoiler: By Lionel, describing a theoretical best-case scenario in which traveling back in time grants immortality aside from accidents. Also in the MergedReality, Troy happily says the game's title when the computer system tells the group "no casualties expected"]].
* TrialAndErrorGameplay: Often the case, as it can take several attempts before the player sees the solution.
* TriumphantReprise: The music that plays in [[spoiler: the merged timeline]], "[[http://jessevalentinemusic.bandcamp.com/track/ray-of-light Ray of Light]]", is this to the music that typically plays during the gameplay sections, "[[http://jessevalentinemusic.bandcamp.com/track/up-in-flames Up In Flames]]".

As an extra kick, it starts at the same moment a WhamLine is delivered: "[[spoiler:Fire on floor B3. No casualties expected.]]"



* WhamLine: A subversion in that it appears in the opening -- "I killed them. And I lit the fire." [[spoiler:Also a subversion in that it's a lie.]] Every character's ending has one as well, however:
