* TyrannosaurusRex: The Kagoo and the Baby Kagoos in the Tyrannosaur/Kagoo Cave that connects the Swamp, Desert and Massif. The baby kagoos are smaller and can be regarded as normal-level enemies which you can at least melee with a hope of survival. The larger Kagoo, who doesn't looks ''that much'' bigger than it's children on the other hand? Yeah, do not let it bite you, for it's instant death. Worse? You can't fight it at all in it's cave, and it happens to be hovering near one of the Sesame computers you need to win the game. You either need to be good at dodging the Kagoo in its cave, or kill it before going for the Sesame computer.

* DesignatedLoveInterest: Nina1 and Trepliev1 seem to be a couple, but she can only contact him in his dreams, during which she shows little concern for his actual well-being; either she makes a few token remarks on her love for him, or she reprimands him or even accuses him of wrongdoing, at one point even joking she'll have an affair with Freud37 just because he's wandered closer to her than Trepliev1 has. Trepliev1 being a HeroicMime doesn't help matters.



** "''Hypotension''": Blood pressure is too low. In the game, this is actually considered a near impossiblity to actually die from. Usually the worst that will happen is you will faint occasionally from the lack of blood pressure.

** "''Carbonisation''": Lava scattered outside of and inside the AWE Droid base will do this. It works exactly like [[QuicksandSucks quicksand]], except Tripliev1 will scream as he sinks instead of sobbing.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The white booklet has signatures from several comrades. [[spoiler:Except for Nina1, everyone who signs the booklet has be killed later to obtain their Sesame computers. Many of the messages include hints that some will turn on Trepliev1, like Nietsche26 and Epicurus92 being jealous of his successes, Pavlov95 boasting his shooting skills, and Diogenes48 just plain despising him.]]



* GuideDangIt: You might figure out how to survive for a few days without dying a horrible death. But there's no way you'll actually work out how to finish the game without either psychic prescience, looking at a guide, or multiple occurances of playing through to nearly the end and having to restart from the beginning because you rendered the game Unwinnable.

* KillEmAll: To escape the planet, Tripliev has to acquire all of the Sesame computers: one each from every other Robinson. They don't tend to hand them over willingly. [[spoiler: Nina1 is the only other Robinson you don't kill or even meet in person during proper gameplay.]]

* MacGuffinDeliveryService: [[spoiler:Nietsche26 asks Trepliev1 to gather every Sesame he can so they can put it into the Droid HQ and make their way to Nina1 together, but when he comes back with all the computers he reveals that the HQ is full of gas and he has the only gas mask. He attacks Trepliev1 and has to be killed first.]]



* {{Retirony}}: {{Invoked}}; Zarathustra is meant to be Tripliev's final mission, one way or another...

Added DiffLines:

* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Nina1 is the only female Robinson in the game. The [[AllThereInTheManual white booklet]] says that she's the first woman just to join A.W.E.. [[note]](The other manual disputes this by implying that each intake has an even male-female ratio, but the wording also makes it found like there are forty people in total. The game itself only shows twenty.)[[/note]]

** However, it is possible to avoid triggering Darwin5 [and thus battling him to the death], and still grab his Sesame. You have to get close enough without triggering his cutscene though.

Added DiffLines:

* QuicksandSucks: The desert has plenty of it, and it's probably one of the most fatal examples of this trope in video gaming. The moment you walk onto it, you freeze in place and sink into it [while Trepliev1 sobs] like there's a ''black hole'' under it.
** Lava technically works the same way further into the desert, but with Trepliev1 screaming in agony as he sinks].

* SelfDestruct: Implied. The final section of the game is inside a volcanic cave which has been retooled by 'druids' to house the AWE base. Despite the obvious health hazards [like hard to see magma on the ground and walls], there's a cluster of machinary around, including a sort of ''Sesame-reader'', of which you need all 20 of the Sesame's of your intake [your class of Robinsons, from which you Nina1, Socrates19, etc hail from]. Once all twenty, including your own are inserted, a message shows up and a very-annoying klaxon sounds off every second, announcing the impending destruction of the base.

** However, despite this implication, it seems either the window of time you have to escape is HUGE [six minutes plus], or the whole thing is just a form of bluff to panic the player into moving as fast as possible, which tends to result in a lot of deaths trying to run between tightly-knit streams of magma in the base to get out. One other thing that does make the situation more tense: your ''save/load ability'' and ''your map function'' were tied to your Sesame, ''which you had to give up to that machine earlier'' to activate the self-destruct and open the escape route to the end of the game.

** One commenter on YouTube theorizes this happens to you because "''Trepliev1 is damned one way or another, since he has to murder some of his fellow Robinsons in cold blood''" (like Freud37], even despite the fact most of them have gone mad or are already dead when you find them.

*** It is possible however to sneak around the Giant Robot if you use the crouch/sneak mechanic, as shown [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSn1Nep_VM4 here]], making it the battery is actually NOT the only solution.
