* NoHeroDiscount: The Talan believe you're a Messiah, prophecised to save them from tyranny. This doesn't stop a group of identical merchants, all brothers, from selling your own equipment to you in an attempt to prove to their father that they can make enough money to inherit the family business. However, the items are considered holy relics and the safer you make the Talan feel, the less demand there is for them and the prices will be lower.

* ActorAllusion: Cutter Slade looks remarkably like Bruce Willis. In the german Dub he is even voiced by Manfred Lehmann - the most often used german synchron Voice for Bruce Willis.

to:

* ActionGenreHeroGuy: Cutter Slade is a pretty straight-forward example being a brown haired, white dude of muscular build, as well as a semi-retired special forces operator, with a somewhat cynical worldview and a snarky sense of humor.

[[WhatCouldHaveBeen A sequel was planned]], but before development could really get off the ground, [[AuthorExistenceFailure the company went bankrupt]]. [[http://outcastii.free.fr/www/eng/index_eng.php This website]] preserves what little remains from the original sequel's development materials, including a [[http://outcastii.free.fr/www/main/focus/OC2_1st_Script.pdf design doc draft]]. A fan-made, open source sequel entitled ''[[http://www.openoutcast.org/wp/ Open Outcast]]'' is currently in development by a group of enthusiasts.

* HandCannon: Every gun that Cutter has is an over-sized pistol and he uses all the guns with a single hand. Almost all of them pack tremendous power, your main gun in the game is a massive machine pistol that shoots tracer bullets and your guns just go up from there.

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: You can ask one specific beggar in Okriana about the story of how he fell on hard times, and he will say it is a long story and ask if you are sure you want to hear it. If you press a button to skip his speech after this point he will note you are bored by his story and stop telling it. You can ask him again, and if you do listen through it all in real time, he will reward you just for giving your attention and patience.

** Then much later, when Cutter is waiting for a town meeting to finish in Okasankaar, a watery region where fishing is the main industry.

Added DiffLines:

* DummiedOut: In the game there exist a level three upgrade for flamethrower and level one upgrade for the tranquilizer rifle, which you can only obtain through cheating. All upgrades to the flamethrower decrease the wind-up time of the weapon, and at level three the flame comes out the instant you press the fire button. The single upgrade to the rifle in turn makes the dart fly faster, greatly decreasing the need to anticipate the movements of your target.

Added DiffLines:

* LiteralMinded: Talan tend to be confused whenever Cutter uses a figure of speech, which is due to them lacking knowledge of all the intricacies of the [[AliensSpeakingEnglish English language]]. Same goes for his [[DeadPanSnarker numerous]] instances of [[SarcasmBlind sarcasm]].
