* AppliedPhlebotinum: The discharge of the Plasma cannon can fly around the map and find the enemy... ''Really''.

* ATasteOfPower: With the justification that the player character has been selected to test out cache hardware, a single Magneto-Fusion Assault Cannon (the most powerful weapon in the game) is added to the player's available components after the completion of the first mission. Only the small Outrider vehicle is available at this early point in the campaign and it must be entirely customized around the weight and energy requirements of this weapon in order to mount it.

* BloodKnight: One of the Cybrid squadmates opposes hunting humanity to extinction because that would mean having no more enemies to fight. Given how many Cybrids are bred for combat, it is most likely not the only one.
* BlueBlood: As part of the dictates of his new Empire, Petresun restored a system of nobility. However, only those who had earned their keep during the ''[=EarthSieges=]s'' and their families would hold this honor, and each new generation would have to earn it anew.



* BoringButPractical: Blasters, Heavy Lasers and Heavy Autocannons are available from the very first mission and effective all the way through to the last. Heavier, more exotic weapons become available during the campaign but tend toward greater weight, energy consumption and ammunition limitations. It's quite effective to stick with the basic weapons and just add ''more'' of them as larger Hercs become available. This is the ideal way to customize the game's signature vehicle: the Apocalypse Herc, with a whopping six weapon mounts against a medium 60-ton weight limit.

* ContinuityNod: {{Retcon}} or not, the Compendium depicts HERCs during the events of The Fire as they appeared in ''[=EarthSiege=].'' And Prometheus was mentioned by name in the intro to ''[=EarthSiege 3=]''. His role is greatly expanded here.

Added DiffLines:

* MercyKill: Harabec has to remind everyone that anyone captured by the Cybrids should be shot without hesitation. Not just because they might be turned into TrojanHorse infiltrators, but because whatever happens to them after that point is a FateWorseThanDeath.


Added DiffLines:

* TortureTechnician: The Cybrids have an entire sect dedicated to experimenting on humans and developing new biological and psychological warfare tactics. The O Web bulletins in the Cybrid campaign are full of [[DissonantSerenity disturbingly clinical descriptions]] of their results. Among the worst are those discussing the effectiveness of strapping captured humans to their mechs to demoralize human pilots, and then also injecting them with pain-inducing drugs to make them scream, and then using children for even better results. NightmareFuel indeed.

* PainfullySlowProjectile: Magneto Fusion Assault Cannons. Oh, dear...Cannons, oh dear. The Heavy Blaster is not much better due to its nearly 20% slower projectile speed verus the standard Blaster or EMP cannon.
** Contrary to their depiction in previous ''Earthsiege'' games, Electron Flux Whips here are painfully slow ''lightning bolts.''
