* CopyProtection: The ever-controversial [=SecuROM=]. Oh lord, the ''massive'' [[InternetBackdraft flaming]] that resulted from it being cracked a few days before release...

** While the game was fortunately launched on GOG.com (which is famous for being DRM-free) in August 2016, the game still requires the actual CD-key to log in to the online sharing aspect of the game. Said CD-key can only be obtained through actual purchase on the GOG.com account.

*** The name "Planet Buster" is itself a ShoutOut to ''SidMeiersAlphaCentauri''.

Added DiffLines:

* AchievementMockery:
** "Joker", which means that you cheated with the race that earned it, and you cannot get more Achievements with it (thus it overlaps with NoFairCheating) and "Pathological Cheater", for gaining 50 Joker badges.
** "Dance With The Devil", which means you allied with [[AlwaysChaoticEvil the Grox]] and are thus a colossal JerkAss.
** "Can't Win for Losing", awarded for dying in every stage of the game.
** "General Custer", awarded for getting 30 followers killed and generally being TheNeidermeyer.
** The "Bad Baby" was awarded for getting a creation banned from the online Sporepedia. It was quickly removed because players would deliberately create offensive items in order to get it.

** Another Maxis-made adventure is a spoof of the classic SchoolhouseRock short "I'm Just a Bill", and has you, among other things, killing senators to represent the debate process and discussing taxes on Grox-held worlds.

* The Space stage is by far the largest, longest and most complex of them all. It starts off with the colonization of a new system. After that, it's WideOpenSandbox time, culminating in an encounter with the galaxy's most powerful and evil race.

* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: It's entirely possible to run into creatures much bigger, stronger, and smarter than you... and then kill them and eat their caracasses. Most easily done in the Cell Stage, where spikes can be used offensively to kill creatures two or three phases up.

** [[spoiler: There's also the Grox. The biggest, meanest, strongest empire in the galaxy can be wiped out just like any other empire by one of the youngest empires in the galaxy, and you even get a badge for it!]]



* NoodleImplements: If you refuse to do an "Eradicate 5 citizens" mission for your empire, the one giving the mission will ask that you "At least do your part and buy duct tape and miniature flags."

* PacifistRun: It's perfectly possible to get all the way to the space stage without killing anything. This usually requires getting the green card for a stage, however civilization stage throws a bit of a curveball at the player as the blue card (economic) is actually the pacifist choice in that stage, not the green one (religious).

Though since no-one is hurt and nothing is damaged through religious conquering(you shut down their entertainment buildings and turrets and preach to them via a hologram, that's about it), you could argue that the green civilization card is no less pacifist than the blue one.



** The game also provides a more literal side of this: during the civilization stage, any city you capture will switch the architectural style over to what you're using (even if the buildings are ruble) as well as the vehicles. In the space stage, you can choose what buildings and vehicles you want for each planet. However, all of the citizens wear the same outfit regardless of what city or colony they come from.

* PlanetaryRomance: You would be surprised at how elaborate some players can be when they create adventures or provide a backstory for a race/captain on the [=SporeWiki=]; the evolutionary stages as tracked in your history can give you a great overview of what happened to get your race from a mess of slime to a spacefaring empire.

There's a bug where, outside of the Maxis mission Concert in the Park, socializing in an Adventure will cause the timeline to become horribly glitchy and scrambled.[[/note]]

Almost all content seen in ''Spore'' was developed by its userbase, thanks to the game's ability to automatically upload creations (from cells and creatures to vehicles and spacecraft) to the main ''Spore'' website ("Sporepedia"), and subsequently download those creations to other games. For example, while about 1,700 entities are bundled with the core game disc, Sporepedia hosts ''over 180 million ''. SturgeonsLaw very much applies, but that still leaves over 18 ''million'' creations that aren't bad.
