The year is 2097. In this future, national governments are puppets of the multinational corporations. One such corporation, World Aeronautics and Robotics (WAR), runs the entire show with a silk-covered iron fist. WAR was started as a research institute to provide Human-Assisted Robots for space travel. Their first prototypes were activated in 2009 and were immediately put to use by a conglomeration of companies from Japanamerica to build the first ACTIVE space station. The HAR's were better than conventional robots in that they were completely operated by a single human whose brain controlled the robot's systems via remote. The "pilot" actually "became" the robot for all intents and purposes, but no danger to the pilot was possible.

Anyone who has even a remotely important position at WAR is trained in the use of HAR's. Most have spent considerable time "in" a real working model to get the feel of it. But the use of HAR's for sparring is a completely new scheme brought about by the need to know that when one company attacks another the 'bots can handle the stress. The idea of using WAR robots for entertainment is a new one, but The Company believes that it will be good press for the next prototypes from the WAR design rooms. Therefore, the public is invited to view the proceedings. The future of Gamymede, WAR, and maybe humanity itself, hangs in the balance.

* FragileSpeedster: The Gargoyle mech. Your in-fight stats are a combination of those of your mech and those of the character controlling the mech... so Milano controlling a Gargoyle (which he always does in tournament mode) is right at the top of the list.

* Americasia[=/=]JapanTakesOverTheWorld: The manual mentions in passing "Japanamerica" and the "defunct United States of America", suggesting that Japan and the US (or part of it) have merged into one country. This has basically no bearing on the game itself, though.

* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: The Katana bot spins a lot in his special moves.

* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: The Katana bot spins a lot in his Rising Blade and Razor Spin special moves.moves. The Flail's Swinging Chains and Spinning Throw also contribute, while the Pyros has the Fire Spin, where it spins in place and bashes the enemy with flames and claws (in fact, its FinishingMove consists of nothing but spinning and bashing and burning, repeated until the opponent's top half explodes).

Added DiffLines:

* CombatPragmatist: Some of the robots have fantastical abilities, such as the Shadow being capable of creating a short-lived duplicate of itself or Chronos teleporting. What about Nova, the biggest, baddest of them all? It fires bombs and missiles at the opponent.

* HandicappedBadass: Cossette previously fought in "The Arena" which preceded the current tournaments and had the pilots physically inside the robot. There she received an injury which landed her in a wheelchair.
