* 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.

* AFriendInNeed: ** Chapter 7 is all about this trope. The chapter is even titled with this trope. Konoko has this conversation with Griffin... -->'''Konoko:''' "I'm going after her."\\ '''Griffin:''' "I have dispatched a Strike Team to recover the SLD."\\ '''Konoko:''' "This is personal."\\ '''Griffin:''' "Which is precisely why you should have nothing to do with it."\\ '''Konoko:''' "My mind is made up."\\ '''Griffin:''' "I am your Commanding Officer..."\\ '''Konoko:''' I don't care who you are. My friend is in trouble and I'm going to help her if I can. Stay out of my way. ** Konoko went against orders to help her friend Shinatama. This ends up causing her to lose her entire career as a cop, as well as becoming a fugitive. But then again, it is situations like this that show exactly where people's priorities and loyalties lie.

* AMillionIsAStatistic: [[spoiler: The ending of the game worked hard to avert this trope. First, it shows the city you played most of the game in. The destruction of the Atmospheric Processor apparently causes chaos, with people running around and screaming, buildings ending up on fire, and not to mention TCTF headquarters getting wrecked up. In short, it shows the Apocalypse occurring in the city. Then, it shows Mai Hasegawa walking through the city. She is not happy. If you think about it, most of the characters you encountered are most likely dead by the end of the game. Also, if think about how just about every city in the game probably suffered the same fate shown in the ending, well, you can understand how this trope is averted.]]

To describe it would take a lot of time to explain, but it essentially is a combination of [[spoiler:TomatoInTheMirror, TreacherousAdvisor, IAmWho, BrokenMasquerade, ''and'' IAmYourFather]]. Konoko's reaction is best described as a FreakOut.
