* PersuasionMinigame: Recruiting new party functionaries, as well as many special events revolve around a negotiation minigame between your functionary and an NPC. First, you get a number of persuasiveness points (dependent on your functionary's Resolve score), which you have to assign to four differently-weighted arguments you will use later. In the first round of negotiation, you must play each of these arguments in any order, not knowing which arguments the other party has. In the second round, the process is repeated, except both parties now know each other's arguments. The party with more successful persuasions (i.e. matching the opponent's argument with a stronger argument) wins the entire negotiation. Also, at one point can try to convince a wealthy businessman to support you. If you mess up the negotiations, he won't give you anything. Win, he pays. Go over the top and he pays extra.

Added DiffLines:

* MentorArchetype: If you pay attention to all the memos you receive after key plot events, you'll notice that all of them are from one Tresori Vilnov, an aging (Influence-aligned) dissident who has taken the protagonist under his wing and is subtly directing him in his quest for power. You can actually meet Tresori in person when you reach Berezina, although he cannot be recruited.


Added DiffLines:

* PlotMandatedFriendshipFailure: Late in Pugachev, [[spoiler:the right-hand man you've recruited from among the protagonist's three childhood friends in Ekaterine will turn on you, causing a literal party schism, after someone (read: Karasov) informs him that you have been in constant contact with ''someone'' in Berezina (read: worked for Karasov) the entire time. The reality is that you ''do'' have a contact in Berezina, but it's actually Tresori Vilnov, a notable political dissident and underground hero, who has taken the protagonist under his wing]].

* LetsYouAndHimFight: Late in Pugachev, [[spoiler:a plot-mandated schism splits your party, when two of your highest-level recruits go rogue to form a Wealth-aligned "New Peace Party", taking a full half of your raw support with them, giving them more than enough resources to rival your power base]]. While it is up for debate whether the protagonist or, indeed, any character in the game qualifies as "heroic", the event does give the protagonist's real enemies, the Red Mafiya, time to catch their breaths, while he has to either crush, or reconcile with this new rivals.

* YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters: Karasov and his regime will try to paint you as a terrorist, while naturally you potray yourself as a freedom fighter. Where you actually fall depends on your chosen path.

Added DiffLines:

* RedemptionDemotion: Kind of. At the start of the game Robert Tarasov is the head of the Democracy Now Party and, as such, has access to all of the perks of the Leader profession. If you free and recruit him following his arrest, however, he will revert to the standard Academia profession instead.

* FlavorText: Every single building, character, and even random objects like telephone booths and ''trash'' have their short flavor texts that can be read by clicking on them in the rooftop (3D) mode.
* FogOfWar: Played with. You can see the 3D world wherever you want, but you won't know what your enemies are doing if you're not actively investigating. There are even actions to intentionally spread the fog of war to prevent other factions' from knowing what you are doing.

Added DiffLines:

* NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity: Intentionally averted in-universe: Many actions, particularly of the Force ideology, generate "bad facts", which your rivals can uncover with investigative actions and use to boost their own actions for free, especially actions that erode your popular support.

* ThePurge: Very early in act 1, Karasov declares himself PresidentForLife, banning all political parties other than his own, and, in order to prove he means business, orders an Alpha Squad raid on the HQ of the then-largest opposition group, the Democracy Now Party, systematically killing or thrown into jail all of its members (although you can later arrange for the DNP leader Robert Tarasov to be freed to work for you instead).
