* TakeThat: [[spoiler: [[BiggerBad Carbon's]] boasting about his money, frequent mockery of his opponents, dismissive attitude towards veterans, doctors, women, and foreigners, intentions for the [[FantasticNuke SEED]], and claims of wanting to "make humanity great again" were all meant as jabs toward UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump for his controversial behaviour and policies]].

* MegaCorp: Zombie Pest Control Incorporated, more commonly known as the ZPCI, make money hand over fist by exterminating zombies, and they even have an entire city in their pocket, with the city's taxes being used as protection money. They also try to ruthlessly quash anything with the potential for ending the Zombie Apocalypse, such as the cure for zombification that Roald and his team were working on. Oh, and they also like to [[KillEmAll kill]] ''[[LeaveNoSurvivors everybody]]'' [[SinkTheLifeboats who]] [[HeKnowsTooMuch was]] [[LeaveNoWitnesses involved]] in said attempts to end the zombie threat.

** Dr. Klima, who was a BonusBoss in Sonny 2, [[spoiler: is promoted to TheDragon in the mobile reboot, aiding [[BiggerBad Carbon]] in his plans to turn all of humanity into super zombies]].
* BadassLongcoat: Vendara wears one.
* BiggerBad: [[spoiler: [[MysteriousBacker Carbon]], the head of [[MegaCorp Infectaid]], provides the ZPCI with the [[FantasticNuke SEED]] they wish to use to destroy all the zombies with in order to hide his true intentions of [[KillAllHumans exterminating the human race with it]] and transforming them all into super zombies like him, as no one would expect that a weapon used by a zombie-hunting group would be used for mass zombification instead. The revelation of this plan is when the party goes from fighting the ZPCI to preventing Carbon and his super zombies from claiming the entire human race with the weapon]].

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Arcanis brainwashes those within the Hidden Forest into worshipping an evil spirit known as the Frozen God and orders them to attack outsiders to the forest. As Zakk learns to his horror, Arcanis brainwashed his entire tribe and forced them to sacrifice themselves to the spirit, which [[ItsPersonal gives him a greater drive to kill the cult leader]].
* {{Cult}}: [[KnightTemplar Arcanis]] leads a cult that worships an evil spirit called the [[GodOfEvil Frozen God]], claiming that the spirit is benevolent when it was actually sealed away for its wrath. The cultists are notable for charging the animals they control with powerful spells and gaining power through [[BloodMagic drinking the blood of fellow cultists]], requiring the party to kill them as soon as they can to prevent them from getting too powerful.



* PuzzleBoss: Most area bosses have at least one major gimmick that forces you to change up your strategy (or just be grossly over-leveled), often [[ThisIsAJobForAquaman forcing you to use previously-ignored skills]].

When he's finally defeated, he states that while he regrets the harm he caused, nothing is more important to him than being with the one he loves.]]

* BoringButPractical: The Physical strain moves are less flashy than the elemental strains, but their low cooldowns compared to their strength and their versatility make them useful throughout the game. Not to mention some are essential for beating bosses if your particular strain lacks a better move for that role.

Added DiffLines:

* ShootTheMedicFirst:
** Essential for dealing with medic and caster-type enemies.
** Discussed and Played With for Arcanis. Sonny has the idea of killing the healing orbs first, but the simplicity of this makes Zakk suspicious. You actually ''don't'' want to kill them immediately, since they fully heal your party upon death, and this is essential later in the fight.

* KnightTemplar: The Warden in the second game is this, judging by his armor's combined FlavourText.
--> "Everyone is guilty of something. Everyone deserves to be punished. But isn't there crime in punishment?"



* AntiVillain: [[spoiler: Baron Brixius becomes this in the mobile remake. In the original game and its sequel, Brixius is a sadistic, god-like zombie overlord who [[ManipulativeBastard manipulates zombies and humans alike]] in order to instigate pointless conflict for [[ForTheEvulz his own amusement]]. In the mobile remake, he instead [[DespairEventHorizon goes mad after losing his wife]] and causes the zombie apocalypse [[LoveMakesYouCrazy in an attempt to bring back her back]], and [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone deeply regrets the harm he caused in the end]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* AchillesHeel: The War Lizard has an unstable fusion reactor at its core that burns it over time, draining its health. Taking advantage of this weakness is all but required to defeat it, as it has [[DamageSpongeBoss high health]] and [[SuperToughness durable armor]] that make it almost impossible to kill without doing so.


Added DiffLines:

* DefeatMeansFriendship: Zakk initially starts out antagonistic, but joins the party after they defeat him in order to bring down [[KnightTemplar Arcanis]], who has been brainwashing his tribe and forcing them to sacrifice themselves to the [[GodOfEvil Frozen God]].

* AIRoulette: Sonny's teammates cannot be directly controlled, but can be given general orders to focus on damage or healing. In general the AI makes fairly predictable moves for the given situation but can occasionally be very... illogical.

In general the AI makes fairly predictable moves for the given situation but can occasionally be very... illogical. illogical, like Veradux choosing to bayonet an full-health enemy instead of healing a near-dead Sonny when at least one healing ability is off cooldown.



* CriticalHitClass: You can stack a high amount of Piercing (chance to crit and ignore defense) in a particular element to do this, or just stack abilities that straight up increase your crit chance/damage.



* DeathIsCheap: Sonny and his allies can hit zero HP and "die" any number of times and still be fine for the next round. The only problem is when [[LazyBackup all three of your current party members are dead]] and one enemy still stands.



* InstantWinCondition: As long as all the enemies are dead (and it's the last wave on the mobile reboot) then you win the battle, even if your entire party is simultaneously also dead.



* MightyGlacier: The Cold Hydraulic build in Sonny 2 has a lot of tankiness and strength, but his skills involve controlling the battle with slows, silences, and damage-over-time, not winning quickly.



* WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou: Thankfully averted, especially if your build prioritizes dealing a lot of damage quickly over survivability. However, unless the fight's nearly finished, you may want to restart anyways instead of watching the AI bumble around...
