* AbandonedLaboratory: A possible [[RandomlyGeneratedLevels randomly generated]] area on planets. It seems sometimes the Apex Miniknog take their experiments too far.

* ElementalWeapon: Some randomly-generated melee weapons can be enhanced with either [[UniversalPoison poison]], [[KillItWithFire fire]], or [[ShockAndAwe electricity]]. Poison and fire inflict their respective status effect on enemies, while electricity just adds a projectile attack in the form of a short-ranged pulse of electricity that shoots directly in front of you.

** An unintentional example would be Moontants dropping Raw Steak. Since Moontants [[spoiler: [[WasOnceAMan once used to be people]] until mutated by the Erchius Horror, it can count in a {{Squick}}y way.]]

** The player can craft a lantern on a stick that provides a moderate amount of light surrounding them and freeing up your hands to do something else. Later this lantern can be upgraded to a halogen pack that is much brighter then into a xenon pack that is ''even brighter''.
** The Light Augment for the Environmental Protection Pack creates a very glow around the player.

* WithThisHerring: At the beginning of the game, you're supplied with only a matter manipulator, a flashlight, 10 torches, a few crops, a broken two-handed broadsword, and the meager clothes you're currently wearing. The matter manipulator is slower at mining than a '''stone pickaxe''', the flashlight only illuminates areas at a small angle (unlike the torches and almost all other light sources), and the broadsword should immediately be replaced with a hunting knife once you have the iron to craft it.

''[[http://playstarbound.com/about/ Starbound]]'' is a WideOpenSandbox Scifi Adventure game. [[NamesTheSame Not to be confused with]] a Classic Mac game that lets you conquer planets to get more ships and destroy opposing races, nor with a ''LuckyStar'' fic aiming to parody ''Videogame/{{Earthbound}}''.

** Many planets bear the ruins of previous inhabitants. On lower-risk planets (i.e., peaceful ones) these are generally limited to the odd ruins of a stone or wooden house, but on more dangerous planets such as those with a Toxic or Scorched biome the background picture makes it pretty clear this planet ''used'' to have a pretty advanced civilization until the climate went to hell.

* PlanetLooters: You. A major part of the gameplay is traveling from world to world, stripping each one of resources. Fortunately, none of the worlds you will visit after the tutorial appear to be major homeworlds with a large population of sentient beings you would inconvenience (other than the final mission world, with [[BigBad an enemy you want to inconvenience]] and its {{Mooks}}).

Added DiffLines:

* JustAStupidAccent: There's a [[http://starbounder.org/Asuterosaberu_DX high-end sword]] whose name appears to have been transcripted from Japanese... but it's actually the English words "astro saber" written as though spoken with a bad Japanese accent.


Added DiffLines:

* LaserBlade: The [[InfinityMinusOneSword Violium Broadsword and Shortsword]] are straight examples. The [[ExclusiveEnemyEquipment Solus Katana]] and [[ReforgedBlade Protector's Broadsword]] sometimes appear to be Laser Blades, but they have mundane blades beneath the glowy exteriors.


Added DiffLines:

* MuckingInTheMud: Slogging through tar pits will stick you with a slowness debuff. Jumping into liquid slime will cause an even slower debuff.


Added DiffLines:

* UniversalPoison: The liquid known simply as "poison" can be found in a huge variety of places, from Miniknog laboratories to decrepit sewers to [[spoiler:the bowels of the Ruin]]. It inflicts the same status effect that's caused by monster attacks and eating raw meat.

Added DiffLines:

* CuteMachines: Voltip, one of the unique monsters, is a little raccoon- or bunny-like robot animal that claps its paws together in front of it to shoot electricity.


Added DiffLines:

* FireBreathingDiner: Chili peppers, and any dish made with them, set you on fire for a few seconds when you eat them (their flavor text claims that [[MajorInjuryUnderreaction the humans don't consider this "hot"]]). Of especial note is the appropriately-named [[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce Hot Hot Hotpot]], among whose ingredients is ''lava''.


Added DiffLines:

* ShowsDamage: Vehicles get visibly banged up if you're not a careful driver. The boat will sport increasingly tattered sails and chipped paint, and the hoverbike recieves dings and dents, a cracked windshield, and exposed pipes and wires.


Added DiffLines:

* VideogameFlamethrowersSuck: While the Flamethrower is potent if you get it early, it's only a tier 2 weapon, so it will be decisively outclassed by the time you reach Durasteel level.
