** In fact, the game actively updates its ads to keep up with the times. When ''{{Inception}}'' was in theaters, you couldn't run two blocks without seeing an ad for it.

* BadassBookworm: Alex Mercer. [[spoiler:He's got a Ph.D, his work was ahead of everyone else's...]] and now he's turned into an unstoppable person of mass destruction. There's also the fact that he's consumed literally ''dozens'' of scientists in multiple fields of study, along with multiple high-ranking military officers and pilots. That adds up to a man who has the collective brains of dozens of scientists and military experts, in the body of a nigh-unstoppable {{badass}}.

* NotQuiteFlight: Glide and Air Dash give Mercer a brief respite from the garbage-ridden streets of Manhattan buy allowing him to push himself forward and upward by expelling extra mass and the Hammertoss move allows him to propel himself forward over long distances by throwing his body like ComicBook/TheMightyThor, but like all things what comes up must go down. And when the Hammertoss hits the ground, ''it hits the ground''.



* {{Shoryuken}}: Oh yeah. [[RuleOfCool Oh, oh yeah]]. Bet you've never Shoryuken'd a person ''[[LudicrousGibs in half]]'' before.

to:

* {{Shoryuken}}: Oh yeah. [[RuleOfCool Oh, oh yeah]]. Bet you've never Shoryuken'd a person ''[[LudicrousGibs in half]]'' before. The move, "Hammertoss", isn't so much "jumping" as it's throwing his huge fist in the direction of any poor bastard in it's way.



* VideogameDashing: The Air Dash. It can be upgraded to make you dash further and [[UpToEleven dash a second time after the first]]. Charging up attacks also amplify the extent in which Alex will lunge towards his target.

* VideogameDashing: The Air Dash. It can be upgraded to make you dash further and [[UpToEleven dash a second time after the first]]. Charging up attacks also amplify the extent in which Alex will lunge towards his target. This is justified as Mercer is propelling himself forward by expelling extra mass behind him, simialr to his Glide ability where he expels mass downward to keep his body from falling faster.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Captain Cross, who [[spoiler:actually ''notices'' Alex's one moment of weakness (that being when Alex is hit by flashbacks). And not only does he notice Alex's weakness, ''he uses it against him'' to infect Alex with a parasite that strips him of his ability to shapeshift his body into a weapon or shield]].

* AwesomeButImpractical: Several of Alex's higher-end moves.
** The king is the Bullet Drop. It's the most expensive move in the game, and the most useless except when you're having fun. It consists of (preferably) going as high as possible, gliding over the target, then dropping like a bunker buster missile. It releases a giant shockwave and will kill damn near anything save bosses. Stack Musclemass on top of that and you get a truly devastating combo. It is easily Alex's single most powerful move. However, it has several drawbacks. First, it takes a lot of time to set up. Second, you have to eyeball your target to get a good hit, though the power of this move is such that even a minor miss will kill the target. Third, because of the setup time, the only things this move will ever reliably hit are tanks, buildings, and one boss. The cost is also so prohibitively large that you can't even manage to pay for it without grinding.
** The Groundspike special attack of the Claw power. It's fairly powerful and has near-perfect accuracy. However, it has a very limited range (around the length of four cars) and a huge cool-down time. At maximum distance, it takes about a couple seconds for the attack to hit, and slightly shorter for Alex to retract the spikes, during which he is completely immobilized. Expect your enemies to capitalize on this. The net result is that using this attack will likely be more damaging to you than to your enemies -- much more than if you'd just used conventional attacks. Also, by the time you've unlocked enough upgrades to give it a good area effect and power, you won't find yourself using Claws at all.
