* TheArk: [[spoiler: The very last setting houses the DNA of all creatures and plant life. It was stored so that in the event of the world being destroyed or suffering some other cataclysmal event, it could be recreated again.]]
* ArmorOfInvincibility: Kyrie ''may'' get the Crimson Gear, assuming you [[spoiler:revisited Barni before he died, then revisited Barni ''again'' after he was resurrected]]. If not, it becomes LostForever and you get the Crimson Robe as a consolation prize. Both are stronger than any other armor he can obtain, but the Gear nullifies all elements as well as having a higher defensive value.

* AxCrazy: The first lines out of Morte's mouth are about killing people and blowing up the world...so naturally, [[IdiotHero the protagonist]] [[AmazonChaser finds this really hot]]. [[spoiler: Of course, Kyrie actually has a reason for agreeing with her, even if he doesn't know it.]] However, she's ''never'' shown touching an innocent, and it can be inferred that all of the rumors about her are just Beastmen propaganda.

* RedHeadedHero: Agan, the RedheadInGreen. Potentially Morte as well, depending on [[OffModel if her hair is actually supposed to be red or brown]]. [[spoiler:This is also Kyrie's battle form after he is resurrected.]]

* IHaveManyNames: The game's wanted posters have nicknames for your characters that change over the course of the game. Most are fairly absurd, but given that the wanted posters are [[FacialCompositeFailure overall horrible caricatures]], it's not so surprising that their names are equally unfitting[[note]]NiceGuy Kyrie starts off known as TheButcher because he's a KnifeNut, but really, the only thing he wants to butcher [[SupremeChef is a steak]] - and likely [[FriendToAllLivingThings a tofu steak]] at that[[/note]]. Morte (probably the only one to ''deserve'' her nicknames) overhears a couple of ferals discussing her various names - Beastslayer, Scarlet Plague - and finds the idea hilariously entertaining until they get to "[[ThisIsMyNameOnForeign Lady Death]]", which she finds lame.

* DinosaursAreDragons: Rhi'a's personal quest has you freeing her ancestor from a curse that's keeping him a zombie. Naturally, this ancient dragon bears a striking resemblance to a T-rex, as do some of the RandomEncounters around the Dragonkin Ruins of the current day. Rhi'a's grandfather appearing as a skeleton is also likely meant to bring fossils to mind, because EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs!



* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: The game opens with Morte and the World Annihilation Front attacking Viteaux like a bunch of BombThrowingAnarchists. You're [[IntroOnlyPointOfView in control of Naja]] and are supposed to fight her off and save the town, but the girl is having ''way'' too much fun either way. With the way Naja and his jerkish superior Rajif keep calling her a terrorist, she'd make an ''excellent'' poster girl for any sort of terrorist group: "Be a terrorist! [[StuffBlowingUp Blow stuff up!]] '''It's fun!'''" At least it does help you feel more sympathetic towards Kyrie for falling in LoveAtFirstSight: that kind of enthusiasm can be infectious, even coming from a PsychopathicWomanChild. [[spoiler:And, thankfully, she keeps her upbeat, determined personality even after changing her mind about destroying the world, proving that good doesn't have to be boring.]]

* VillainShoes: You control Naja during the ActionPrologue; after you get control of TheHero Kyrie, though, Naja becomes an antagonist dead-set on preventing Kyrie's LoveInterest Morte from using his powers to end the world (Kyrie himself [[AntiAntiChrist isn't big on wanting to end the world]], either, but [[LoveMakesYouDumb definitely does want to help Morte]] and that's what ''she'' wants). Of course, given the game's playing with BlackAndGreyMorality and VillainProtagonist, it's hard to say controlling Naja actually counts as "villain" shoes. There's also a segment later in the game where you lose Kyrie and take control of Morte in his place, [[spoiler: but by that point she's reconsidered destroying the world and decided she'd rather try to fix it instead.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DullSurprise: The game normally has emotive voices and at least gets its character sprites GoingThroughTheMotions as they talk. However, at the end of the game, Kyrie proclaims that he won't destroy the world because he has people he loves now, and they love him. Morte's text response has an exclamation point and her sprite animation seems embarrassed, but her face portrait is neutral rather than lovestruck and her voice is about the same as one you'd use to ask him to pass the salt at dinner.
