* BigBrotherIsWatching:
** The Apex suffer from a very advanced case of this. The player character, should he or she be an Apex, is a member of the rebellion who escaped after the Miniknog, the Apex's oppressive government, crushed it. As you can imagine given the game's general tone, it is lampshaded ruthlessly; there are even posters featuring a character dubbed Big Ape, who is said to be all-seeing and who commands those who gaze upon his visage to OBEY. None of the player characters are impressed, least of all Florans, who comment that they [[ImAHumanitarian have no plans to obey their dinner.]]
** Apex dungeons have posters that read, "Big Ape is All Seeing".
** Apex in Apex settlements will talk about hidden cameras, spies, and other activity alluding to the big brother nature of the Mini Knog government.



** For all the fancy foods you can make, the most efficient, in terms of storage, is ''boiled rice''. As rice can be kept in one inventory square, you only need to plop a campfire (or find an equivalent) and churn out as much boiled rice as you need.

* TheCloudcuckoolanderWasRight: When analyzing the Geometric Screen, the Floran PC claims "Floran read words good. Sssay 'ssstab a meatman'. Huh.", which many players will probably dismiss as them just seeing what they want to, considering how... eccentric they can be regarding stabbing. However, doing the same with a Glitch PC will have them say "Analysis. This display appears to read 'stab a meatman' in binary. How unusual."

* AwesomeBackpack: The Enviromental Protection Pack, or EPP, which is a core part of game progression. Crafting and upgrading it allows you to, in order, breathe on airless moons, shield yourself on radioactive planets, stay warm on frozen planets, and keep cool on overheated planets. It can also be fitted with upgrades that give you extra bonuses, like health regeneration, boosted damage, improved mobility, and hands-free lighting.


Added DiffLines:

* CityPlanet: Well, ruins of them, anyway. They take the form of Toxic planets, which [[GreenAesop failed to properly regulate pollution]], and Scorched planets, which got roasted by their parent stars.


Added DiffLines:

* DeathWorld: ''Most'' planets are Death Worlds without the proper EPP upgrade. Endgame, Magma planets are still intractably deadly - they're [[LethalLavaLand more Lethal Lava than Land]] and may be the target ot [[ColonyDrop giant]] [[OneHitKill meteorites]].

* SpaceWestern: The Novakids seem to literally be this, as they have a very wild west-esque motif, complete with space trains.

* PokeThePoodle: Some of the Procedurally generated quests can come off as this, like a band of hardened convicts straight out of [[TheAlcatraz USCM prison]] stealing someone's lunch.



* TerribleTrio: [[TheGeneralissimo Big Ape]], [[SinisterMinister Thornwing]], and [[EvilGenius Greenfinger]] are often mentioned in the lore as working together.

* DevolutionDevice: The Apex government invented a way to make their own people into ape-men. Supposedly this was a tradeoff to make everyone more intelligent.
* DifficultyLevels: There are three difficulty levels: Casual (drop 30% of pixels on death; no hunger system), Normal (lose pixels and drop resources on death), and Hardcore (once the character dies, it cannot be played ever again).

* ClarkesThirdLaw / MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: It not made clear precisely how Staff and Wand weapons work. They certainly ''seem'' magical, producing effects such as fireballs, energy daggers, portals and various auras, but they may simply be making use of some kind of technology, much like the Avian Temple guardians and the Kluex Avatar.



** The Rubium and Cerulium weapons are this: super high technology made to look like magical staves.

* WombLevel: The "Tentacles" planets. The outer layer looks a lot like flesh, trees are replaced by tentacles, and burrowing inside them you can find clusters of flesh and pools of blood.
** [[PlanetHeck Heck Biomes]]. The "ground" is made of either flesh or ''brains''.
** There's also the Eyeball minibiomes, which are quite similar, except with staring eyeballs.

Sure, the trees have enormous eyeballs and are made of some kind of fleshy fiber, but the ground is regular dirt and the water is perfectly ordinary. The local fruit, Oculemons, are delicious, if a bit [[EyesDoNotBelongThere unsettling]].
