* AMechByAnyOtherName: With a bit too much FunWithAcronyms: [=HERCULANs=], or [[OverlyLongName Humaniform-Emulation Roboticized Combat Unit with Leg Articulated Navigation.]] [[InUniverseNickname Often just called]] [=HERCs=].

* HumansAreSpecial: Humanity twice overcame the Cybrids when the odds were stacked heavily against them. [[GenreSavvy Prometheus is aware that human determination alone can put a very large wrench in ITs plans-]] even when IT can ''statistically predict the near-future.''

* SimulationGame: Similarly to the ''MechWarrior'' series, this game features a more involved brand of HumongousMecha combat, with ammunition management, locational damage, equipment configuration, throttle control, targeting, and many other factors. See SubsystemDamage below.

* IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace: The Cybrids appear to enjoy naming their nexus points after various mythological hells or unpleasant places. For instance, the main Cybrid nexus on Pluto, where Prometheus resides, is called "Gehenna", which is the name of the Hebrew version of Hell. There's also one place known as Nineveh.

It must be noted that ''Starsiege's'' backstory preformed a major retcon on the backstory presented by the earlier ''[=EarthSiege=]'' games, and although quite a bit of it can be justified as fleshing out the backstory, enough is incompatible between the two that you could safely put ''[=EarthSiege=]'' to ''[=EarthSiege 2=]'' in their own separate continuity that was later copied, modified, and built upon for ''Starsiege'' and beyond. There are still arguments over which backstory version is better. The game recieved a pseudo-sequel in the form of ''[[{{VideoGame/Tribes}} Starsiege: Tribes]]'', and that series subsequently underwent MorePopularSpinoff, cleaving itself from ''Starsiege'' in the same manner it separated itself from ''[=EarthSiege=]''. ''Starsiege'''s backstory is still canonical for the ''Tribes'' series though.

* 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.
