** [[AllThereInTheManual The manual]] [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this, pointing out that with the [[BigBrotherIsWatching omnipresent surveillance state]] represented by the world government, a criminal organization as [[NGOSuperPower large, well-coordinated, and paramilitary]] as Syndicate ''should'' be eradicated in short order. However, it is likely that the Syndicate continues to exist because it serves the government's purpose to allow them to do so, using the fear of the disorder they represent to maintain their control, and that as long as the Syndicate continues limits itself to [[CyberPunk terrorizing the margins of society outside the sheltered safety of the highly-controlled cities]] they can bureaucratically hamstring the TCTF. A terminal late in the game posits that Griffin has become more trouble than he is worth to the world government because while his zeal carried him through the ranks quickly, the authority he now has put him in a position to persecute the Syndicate more sternly than the government finds politically expedient...

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: During the tutorial level, Konoko takes a break at one point to watch another officer engage in unarmed combat with a pair of training drones. This fight is ''not'' scripted, and it is possible for the officer to either win or lose. Either way, Shinatama tells Konoko to move on after the fight is done, but if the officer lost, she sounds a lot more embarrassed and awkward ("Oh! Um... that wasn't supposed to happen... let's just move on....")

It's widely accepted that the only thing that stopped it from becoming a classic is that the game was rushed out the door due to Microsoft's purchase of Bungie -- features initially promised that never materialized included more enemies and a multiplayer mode.

* {{Badass}}: Most of the main characters, including Konoko, Griffin, Muro, Barabas and Mukade.



* BreakingSpeech: Mukade gets cornered by Konoko. She asks him why she can feel him. This gives him the perfect opening to essentially tell her that she is just like him...a monster that gets off on killing. She is unable to give an appropriate response to this, except to try to deny it. She manages to defeat him and kill him off. However, it is painfully clear that Mukade hit a sore spot in terms of psychology.

* InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja: Level 9 introduces them, Level 10 is mostly about them, Level 11 features them, and Level 14 has them too. Well, gosh, when you make a game heavily based off of anime and put fighting into it, you gotta have ninja, don't ya?

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [[spoiler:Griffin is possibly this. After all, he did tell his {{Genre Blind|ness}} scientist or cop to continue scanning for Konoko when he was told that Konoko most likely died in the acid. Too bad this did not help him too much against Konoko in the end.]]

The year is 2032. the World Coalition Government is in charge of 80% of the world's countries, and its peace-keeping forces crack down on everybody who threatens the status quo, while most of the population is centralized around atmospheric processors that keep out the massive pollution outside the cities. The WCG is opposed by a criminal organization known as The Syndicate, led by a man named Muro.

* KickChick: Konoko is so very much this. She has at least 18 moves at her disposal (a number of these moves only become available as you go through the game). At least 9 of these moves require Konoko to use her legs and ''kick''.



* ShootTheDog: Konoko can pull this off like no one else can. [[spoiler:She kills Mukade while he is down. Her act of shooting Griffin could be considered this. Her act of blowing up the atmospheric processors is probably this. She fights, and possibly kills, her own brother Muro. Then again, she learned all about that from Griffin, who made her uncle implant a Daodan Chrysalis within her, blew up Shinatama, and tried using Shinatama against her.]]



* ThirdPersonSeductress: Averted - while Konoko is certainly good-looking, she wears very practical TCTF uniforms when on duty, and casual street clothes otherwise. According to the development they had to fight tooth and nail not to give her a {{Stripperiffic}} outfit.



* [[VigilanteMan Vigilante Woman]]: [[spoiler:Konoko basically turns into this by Chapters 7 and 8. She ends up going after the TCTF and the Syndicate. Then again, the laws in this game are so poor that she could not have really achieved the results she needed by obeying.]]



* WaifFu: Konoko is pretty skinny and weighs probably less than 100 pounds. Despite this, she can beat the tar out of anybody, even big, huge musclemen. [[spoiler:It turns out to be justified, because she has the Daodan Chrysalis inside it. It apparently can improve her muscle tissue construction drastically -- essentially allowing her to fight like a 4-legged animal, even if she does not look physically any stronger.]]



* YouAreTooLate: Konoko finds out what Muro's plan is in the last chapter. She remarks to herself "There's too many stations: they could never be disarmed before Muro activates them. But there is one chance: if I overload the generators I could blow them up before the atmospheric damage is irreversible." The game is trying to use this trope, but there seem to be indications to the contrary. Regardless, Konoko is able to disrupt Muro's plan (but not stop it completely), which causes [[spoiler: the Apocalypse, a lot of dead people, and a number of survivors whose status is not elaborated upon]].
