* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: Nina1, the only female Robinson of your intake, [[spoiler:is the only Robinson who neither dies nor must be killed - she dropped her Sesame down a volcanic vent, and you find it in the base near the end of the game. The two of you escape together at the close.]]

* 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.

** [[spoiler: Unfortunately, the Robinsons have mostly been driven insane by their time on the planet, and most will turn hostile immediately or shortly after you meet them, so you can kill them in self-defense without any sticky moral ambiguity issues. There are at least 2 Robinsons (Freud37 & Darwin5) that need to be outright murdered for their Sesames, though.]]

* EleventhHourSuperpower: In the final area of the game, the corpse of the final Robinson [Abelard29] has a laser rifle on his body with ''infinite ammo''. To compensate, at this point the game starts throwing hordes of enemies at you.

** "''Alcholic Overdose''": Can happen if you drink Epicurus92's bottle of whiskey too much, too quickly. It's best to drink in smaller amounts followed by periods of sleep if you're going for the Molotolv Cocktail.

** "''Laser Impact''": Certain Robinsons [Pavlov95 & Nietzsche26] and various droids will shoot at you with lasers. If they hit you at too close a range, you will take a hit to the head which causes this kind of death instantly.

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.]]

** 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.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Darwin5's presence is technically explained by him being one of the exiled Robinsons, but there's no justification whatsoever for him turning into a werewolf. There are hints that the game was [[ReTool Retooled]] from fantasy to science fiction midway through development (you fight centaurs and goblins, for example), but this is a very flagrant out-of-genre moment. He's also the only Robinson that you are forced to fight due to reasons behind either his or your own control (he transforms into a lychomorph against his will and attacks you in that form).

** Example: Epicurus92 will tell you about the female alien tribe [the 'Fridays'], climb up a hill... and appear to ''vanish into thin air''. Some people interpret this as a GameBreakingBug, but this is actually a big misconception. Epicurus92 will reappear after killing the Kagoo and getting your 'reward' from the Fridays' leader. He'll then attack you out of jealousy, forcing you to kill him.

* KillEmAll: To escape the planet, Trepliev 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.]]
** 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.

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.

* 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]]

Developed by the French studio Silmarils, Robinson's Requiem puts the player in the shoes of Trepliev1, an experienced Robinson on his last mission before retirement. A lot of thought and care went into the survival system, resulting in [[TheManyDeathsOfYou all sorts of nasty ways to die]], from massive blood loss to food poisoning to hacking off your own limbs.

* 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].

* WorstAid: Just some things you can do to yourself: Take a huge amount of random medical drugs, and the wash it down with some good old whiskey. Give items that increase heart rate right after exercising hard. Chopping off ALL of your limbs just for the hell of it. Of course, you almost always end up dead.

* 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.

** "''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.

** 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.
