* 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.''

* YouFailPhysicsForever: Vehicles, buildings, rocks, and other such objects bounce around like plastic when destroyed. [=HERCs=] sliding down very steep terrain never tip over. EVER. And as if that wasn't enough, vehicles often take little damage even if they fall hundreds of feet.

*** That WAS SAVED by the above mentioned commercial militarism. Petresun's rejection of such led to the return and reinforcement of quasi-feudalistic codes of honor and discipline, which got humanity back on track to a relatively stable civilization. --> "As a society we are deeply scarred..."

* ShoutOut: A short story in the manual that directly precedes the human campaign has an Imperial officer identify himself as "[[JohnCarterOfMars Barsoom]] Control."

** To compound things further, in ''Cyberstorm'' the mineral "Ore" is said to be the remnants of some unknown alien technology process, in ''Tribes'' the number of habitable planets is - frankly - impossible to happen by chance, and some maps from the original game actually say 'Alien Ruins' are the objective; To this troper, it seems fully reasonable that the devastation of Earth was at the hands of an alien species. * WorthyOpponent: For all of ITS hatred of humanity, Prometheus developed a grudging respect for [[FourStarBadass Ambrose Gierling]] over the course of the two ''[=EarthSiege=]s'', and upon hearing of his death, had him noted in the "Great Record" as being a key contributor to the evolution of the Cybrids.

* EnemyChatter: Averted for most of the game, but on the first mission of Cybrid campaign (a small solo op that is part of the larger invasion of Mercury) you get to tune into the humans' radio chatter coming from other parts of the planet. The chatter goes from confusion, to realization, to panicked combat punctuated by dying screams.
