* NoFairCheating: Probably the first fighter with a built-in "cheapness" detection feature: it's generally triggered if you repeat the same move multiple times in a row in a combo or if you follow up specific moves with ones that would allow you to repeat the sequence endlessly. If triggered, it ends the combo, prevents the offending move from doing damage or hitstun to the recipient and flashes a "no cheese" sign on the screen.

* {{Gorn}}: As if the gameplay hadn't had enough of this, the energy bars are veins connected to a heart at the end, and the special bar below is a nerve linked to a brain. Winning a match causes the loser's heart to explode and the brain to melt into ashes. There's also the fatalities.

* BloodSport: In some versions, bowling and even ''volleyball'' games can be set up in versus matches, with the humans serving as pins and ball, respectively.

* DarkerAndEdgier - Ironically averted in the novel, which has everyone teaming up to wail on an undead dragon. * DemBones: Necrosan, the bosss in the cancelled sequel, was a skeletal dragon/dinosaur thing. * DigitizedSprites - Made from {{Claymation}} figures. * DinosaursAreDragons - Gods, more accurately. In the book (and the canceled sequel), though, there is an undead dragon that shows up to annoy everyone. * DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything - [[EldritchAbomination Ancient, horrible deities]] sleeping finally awaken and wreak havoc upon the world and then start slapping the shit out of each other. It's like the CthulhuMythos meets Franchise/JurassicPark meets MortalKombat.

He may or may not be Necrosan, though[[note]]From what is seen of ''[=PR2=]'', Slashfang is the God of Hunting, thus eliminating this possibility.[[/note]].

This FightingGame is a little unusual in that there's no boss character to smack around. There was a planned upgrade that would've given the game a boss to defeat to beat the game but that went unreleased by Atari Games. There was also a planned sequel, simply called ''Primal Rage II'', that too went unreleased due to being [[FollowTheLeader too many]] {{Fighting Game}}s at the time. However, a single prototype of it has been obtained by the Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, Illinois ''(sadly, this means that this is the only place in the world where you can actually play the game.)'' Footage can be found [[http://shoryuken.com/2014/06/27/galloping-ghost-arcade-releases-over-five-hours-of-primal-rage-ii-gameplay-footage/ here]].

* DarkIsNotEvil: Chaos is classified as a Destructive Beast, but he's only fighting to break the dark spell he accidentally cast upon himself (the one that turned him into a filthy disgusting ape). Once he is freed from the spell, he leads his tribe to greatness.

Added DiffLines:
* EnemyMine: The plot of ''Rage II'' involved the awakening of Necrosan and the sealing of the gods. Because of this, all the gods, Destructive and Virtuous, decided it'd be in their interest of keeping Urth to themselves to align and send Necrosan back to where he came from, choosing avatar representatives to fight in their stead.

Iirc, it wasn't blizzard. It was either a fabulous specimen of humanity, or a noble beast, can'tremember.

* UnscrupulousHero: Blizzard and Armadon are the "goodest" characters in the series, but they're both not above chowing down on their own followers in an emergency, or other Gods' followers just because.
