Added DiffLines:

* DemotedToExtra: Many characters in Colosseum get little or no plot mandated screen time and are only present to [[AvertedTrope avert]] NoEndorHolocaust. The list includes Silva, Beluh, and Dash the Athlete, who all had major, if short, appearances in the previous game, are now at best random NPCs (Silva, Beluh) or part of an optional post-game sidequest (Dash).

Added DiffLines:

* BrickJoke: Some with the minor background characters of Colosseum, actually.
** First, and plot relevently, the lady who lived with Es Cade during Colosseum [[spoiler: is revealed to be a Cipher Peon in XD, which makes sense Es Cade, or rather Evice, was Cipher's boss in Colosseum. In XD, you need to distract and then fight her.]]
** Second, and really minor unless you remembered every minor trainer's dialogue involves a cooltrainer in front of the Agate Village Pokemon Center. In Colosseum, its a male named Dury (Takato in Japanese), whose a battle-able trainer. In XD, the cooltrainer is a female named Cida (Takami in Japanese, for maximum StealthPun) who explicitly mentions she's the younger sister of Dury and has come to the village to study like he did because she's jealous of how strong he became after studying here.
** Next is Makan, who did appear in a minor role in Colosseum as Perr's grandfather, is essential to defeating Cipher in this game.
** Lastly, is the story from an old man in The Under in Colosseum where he discusses that some guy got VERy RICH from mining in The Under, and left and hoped he did it for good. This is foreshadowing Mr. Verich [[spoiler: or rather Grand Master Greevil of Cipher, who most definitely did NOT use it for good.]]

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Cipher Peon Kleef is fairly pathetic (only 3 Pokémon with no Shadow Pokémon, and two of them are pure tanks with no real offense to speak of) in a straight up fight, but he is the only member of Cipher with the brains to attack you when you have just finished a (fairly hardish) boss fight with no healing machine in sight.
** When Cipher takes back their stolen data disk during their raid on ONBS, they also make sure to [[spoiler:scrub the data off ONBS's mainframe servers.]] Luckily Nett remembers one of the key parts, and Michael is able to discover the rest on their own.
** After leaving the wreck of the SS Libra, Michael is ambushed by [[spoiler:Team Snagem]], who want the Snag Machine. Unfortunately for the player, the main man of the group, Wakin, knows better than to engage an ace trainer like Michael in battle: he just gets his Gloom to use Sleep Powder on Michael and steals the machine.

'''''Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness''''' is a spinoff of the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' series and the sequel to ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum''. It was developed by Creator/GeniusSonority and released for the UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube in 2005. Similar to its predecessor, its gameplay revolves less around battling wild Pokémon and more around stealing them from the bad guys.

* WelcomeToCorneria: Averted full time. As you progress into the story, [=NPCs=] will have different remarks on what's been happening. For example, if you return back to Krane after [[spoiler:Snagem steals your Snag Machine]], both him and your mother will notice it, even though you're not required to talk to them during that part of the game.

* CueTheSun: The final cutscene after you defeat the FinalBoss has this. The clouds dissipate and the sun breaks through, likely symbolizing the end of Shadow Pokémon.

** Wes and Rui from ''Colosseum'' only get vague mentions, and no indication of what happened to them after the end of their adventure.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: [[spoiler: Greevil, full stop. First, there's Shadow Lugia, the fight against it can take an eternity if you don't have a Master Ball, mind you. Then you fight him ''right after you snag or beat said Lugia'', with your team at the same status. Why's this an example? ''He has '''seven Shadow Pokemon'''.'' All of them are quite good. He has the three legendary birds, a Rhydon, Exeggutor, and a Tauros. The birds know a special Shadow move unique to them, and his other three have ''Shadow End''. Greevil will ''murder you'' without batting an eye, ''literally''.]]
