The setting is a fictional world, where animals and human-animal hybrids reign supreme, and humans are considered second-class citizens.

Meet the ''World Annihilation Front'' (''World Destruction Committee'' in Japan and in Funimation's subtitled version). A human member of the Front is the main 'heroine', Morte Asherah, who has a nasty attitude, a massive sword and a goal of (what else) to destroy the world with the powers of something known as the "Destruct". Along the way, she picks up Kyrie Illunis, a mild-mannered human with the power to destroy the world, but no desire to do so, and Taupy Toplan, a small bear creature on the scale of a teddy. (Just don't call him a stuffed animal). Kyrie and Taupy, unlike Morte, have no desire to destroy the world, but they are guilty by association and hunted as part of the collective "World Annihilation Front." Latecomers include a dragonkin who can see the future and a guy in an awesome green longcoat who grew up with Morte.

* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler:Naja]] requests forgiveness for [[spoiler:killing Kyrie]] and to join the team; he is allowed to do so and only [[TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong Agan]] is even slightly suspicious of him (despite forgiveness not being her first instinct, Morte decides to [[WhatWouldXDo do what Kyrie would do]] and forgive him). The only thing that keeps it from being InsaneForgiveness is that Kyrie [[spoiler:asked him to kill him to save the world]].

* 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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.]]
