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.

The year is 2032. the World Coalition Government is in charge of 80% of the world's countries, and its peace-keeping forces -- the Technological Crimes Task Force (TCTF) -- 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]].

* ActionGirl: Konoko is ''so'' very much this. The TCTF female cops probably qualify, along with the Syndicate's Furies.

* KudzuPlot: The game's storyline ends up as this. Sure, the main storyline is resolved at the end, but you will be left with ''many'' questions by the end of the game. Part of this may stem from the fact that {{Bungie}} was trying so hard to get the game out of {{Vaporware}} status that they had to cut out things that would have filled in some blanks in the storyline. It is also possible that Bungie wanted this kind of plot, because a lot of Japanese anime and manga have a KudzuPlot.

* FragileSpeedster: All the ninja you encounter in this game move pretty darn fast, but fortunately have less health than the average enemy. The Furies and the female TCTF officers may qualify for this as well.

* GlassCannon: The Mercenary Snipers are very much in this trope. Their favourite weapon is the Mercury Bow, which is an ideal weapon for sniping and does a kegload of damage if it hits you. Being snipers, they like to keep a large distance between themselves and you. Fortunately for you, the Mercury Bow only contains two shots, and there is a 5-second delay between shots. Clearly, the snipers have to carry a lot of ammo clips. They have low health and once you disarm them they actually fight very poorly without their guns. Oh, and they can say "Wait till I reload!" It seems that they actually put a LampshadeHanging on this trope.

* GunsAreUseless: Ammo is extremely scarce and even the strongest guns aren't much use against the strongest enemies, and after a certain point in the game bosses become completely immune to weapon damage. This forces the player to rely on hand-to-hand combat.
