* AnachronismStew: At the start of the game the continents have yet to form, then the, the player character, goes to the surface and creates plants, then birds, then mammals. Then as you progress through the game you visit progressively more technologically advanced towns going from primitive huts through the discovery of America and invention of such wonders as the light-bulb, through to a future with robots and cures for all disease. The thing is all these towns exist simultaneously on the world map and you can go back and forth between them at will. This is justified in the game itself by suggesting that time isn't quite right.

* ThirdPersonPerson: Ark often refers to himself in the third person, though this is most likely a result of the game's poor localization.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The plot practically revolves around this trope. Hell, the game starts off with you opening Pandora's Box. [[spoiler: But near the end it turns out to be [[SubvertedTrope a subversion]]. In fact, not only have you not broken it, you actually... well, look at the next entry.]]

If you vote for the deadbeat drunkard, he cleans up his act and creates a communist society...that doesn't develop, and he eventually reverts to drunkardness as the pressure of being in charge becomes too much for him.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_HjqiotvpE&feature=relmfu#t=04m40s In one particular event]], four evil dolls circle Ark singing a Japanese children's nursery rhyme, the last line of which is a clue to which doll is the "real" one that Ark should attack. The dolls' circling is timed so that they stop as soon as the nursery rhyme is finished. Now, to be fair, this is a very tricky thing to translate. There are a few ways one could go about this:
