* TheBadGuyWins: In a way. [[spoiler:God loses the final game, but he tricks Atlas into holding up the huge foosball champion trophy on his shoulders... Which has the world on top ''anyway''. Judging by Atlas' expression, either he's oblivious, or the trophy is easier on his shoulders.]]

* UnexpectedGameplayChange: [[spoiler:The Final Boss is the final conflict between Atlas and God... Except it's a game of ''foosball'' (aka ''table football''), [[MundaneMadeAwesome played up in the most epic way possible]], with each player alternating between control of the ball.]]

* WakeUpCallBoss: Joan of Arc is basically the game's way of saying "destroying the enemy boulder is a strategy now that we've made them a lot flimsier, so get on that". Joan gets a ''huge'' head start on the player, beginning her charge at least ten or fifteen seconds earlier, and short of her AI screwing up and getting really badly stuck on the traps [[FragileSpeedster there's really no way to brute-force outpace her.]] About the only way to reliably beat her is learn how to use the traps and lightning cloud to break her boulder entirely and turn the time advantage over to the player.

* Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Joan of Arc. God tries to ask her if she's seen Atlas (who is hiding in a bush nearby), but she ends up taking it as a sign that she should lead France to crush the English. God is ''baffled'' by her behaviour, and just shrugs his shoulders as he leaves.

** Literature/DonQuixote. But, well, ''that goes without saying''. His ''entire stage'' reflects his delusions, making windmills look like giants swinging their arms around until the camera gets closer.
* DifficultButAwesome: The Prehistoric Wheel is pretty much ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin - a literal stone wheel, as opposed to a boulder. It has slightly less health than the standard boulder, but can deal more damage. It is also is the fastest "boulder" in the game, but with the big caveat that it's much harder to control, especially if it ends up on its side, and it can be easily stopped. However, it is ''extremely useful'' on maps where going out-of-bounds is much harder (mainly the more modern painting-inspired maps), especially in obstacle course races.



* MundaneMadeAwesome: The game takes this trope to its silliest - how does [[spoiler:''foosball/table football match with God'']] sound? Nevermind one backed by epic latin chanting and yet another classical soundtrack remix.
