* ArmorOfInvincibility: The paladin armor for Veradux in the first game. However, unlike most examples, instead of making the character tough as hell, it makes hit noticeably harder. Specifically, Veradux's poison attack, due to the fact each piece of armor gives ludicrous amount of poison piercing, to the point that the entire set overfills the piercing bar.

* UpdatedRerelease: An updated version of the first game was made for iOS systems as of January 12, 2017. It features a [[ArtEvolution more detailed art style]] and the ability to upgrade items, making them more viable, but comes with the cost of being limited to one class and the inability to search backgrounds and read flavor text. The gameplay, story, dialogue, and music remain the same.

* MayorPain: Boris Livingstone is the Evil kind towards the citizens of Hew, sending SecretPolice after them if they oppose him and violently cracking down on anything he considers a threat to his power.



* PragmaticHero: Veradux encourages Sonny to turn on Galiant despite him helping them take down Baron Brixius, stating that even if he did help them earlier, he's still a member of the ZPCI, who want to exterminate any zombie they see [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman regardless of their level of sentience]]. Sonny reluctantly agrees, and the two kill him in battle.

* PuppetKing: Or Puppet Mayor, in this case; although Boris Livingstone is the mayor of Hew, the ZPCI are really the ones in charge, getting Livingstone to crush rebellions for them and forcing Hew's citizens to pay incredibly high taxes as protection money.


Added DiffLines:

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: The citizens of Hew despise Boris Livingstone due to his use of SecretPolice and violently cracking down on anything that might be a threat to his power, and it doesn't help that he's allied with the ZPCI, who have been forcing them to pay exorbitant taxes as protection money. When the party kills him, [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing they all celebrate the end of his rule]].

* BagOfSpilling: In Sonny 2, Sonny and Veradux start the game with their respective starting equipment from the first game. [[TheHero Sonny's]] equipment includes a white T-shirt (which in the first game originally had to be purchased in the first zone's shop), a pair of old sneakers, a pair of jeans, and a length of broken pipe that serves as his starting weapon (the pipe is {{lampshaded}} in the weapon's description, which reads "Me and the pipe...we go way back."). [[TheMedic Veradux's]] starting arsenal includes a {{BFG}} and a set of PoweredArmor that he stole from the [[MegaCorp ZPCI]] in the first game.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Sonny has more fantastic elements from Krin's earlier RPG's, including the inclusion of a Magic stat as well as fairly standard RPG classes that only differ in starting stats (as opposed to each having separate skill trees). Sonny 2 [[DoingInTheWizard replaces Magic with Instinct]] and makes most abilities either [[MagicFromTechnology technology-based]] or implied to be the result of zombification mutating Sonny. The three player classes are more unique and represent a particular emphasis of the bodily system corrupted -but enhanced- by being a zombie and each class has their own skill tree with multiple build paths within.

* TheLancer: Obviously, this distinction goes to Veradux, being Sonny's main companion/support character for the majority of both games, unless he's dropped from the party during Zone 5 of Sonny 2 (which is unlikely, due to his value as a healer).

* 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.

* MindScrew: The fourth zone in Sonny 2 is one big {{Mind Screw}}. Justified due to the fact that the sewer is filled with a toxic gas that causes hallucinations in all who inhale it. The weird things found in there include a zombie hippie, a clone of Sonny, and a pink rabbit that periodically [[strike:gets blown up by]] blows itself up like a HolyHandGrenade. No, really, that's what the game calls it.

* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: This is played straight in the first game when Veradux steals [[PoweredArmor a suit of armor]] from the ZPCI that is meant for use by medics, but then subverted in Sonny 2 with one of the {{mooks}} of the Zone 2 boss wearing armor very similar in appearance to Vera's armor.

** 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.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: An in-universe example occurs with the ZPCI Praetor: when Dr. Herregods tells him that [[spoiler: Dr. Klima isn't managing the SEED's development, but is only hanging around their base so he can capture Sonny and use him to further study the super zombie strains he created]], he protests that the ZPCI isn't involved in the creation of zombies, and complains about zombie sympathizers breeding with zombies and making new types. Sonny responds by telling him that's not how zombies are made.
