* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: In the second game the translator biochip is advertised as instantly translating the written and "spoken" forms of any language. That means you can turn it on, then listen to the alien transporters saying what they're configured for. Save first, of course.
** Another similar example occurs when the guards at the top of the castle tower in Chateau Gaillard attempt to intercept you after you climb your way into the tower. Failing to cloak yourself in time will result in a game over, but you will actually get one of two different possible scenes to play out depending on whether or not you have your translator biochip active. Same thing with two other guards in the castle hallways.
** In ''Pegasus Prime'', after you get the power crowbar, you can whack Ares with it after he tells you to move. But nothing happens, and if you do it too many times or don't move the right way, he'll grab you and shoot you to death with his plasma gatling gun.

* InterfaceSpoiler:
** In ''Pegasus Prime'', the Optical Memory biochip clearly shows [[spoiler: "Sinclair Laboratories"]] below the symbol shown on it, which almost prematurely gives away who the culprit is.
** Subverted with [[spoiler: Poseidon's optical memory]]. In ''Turbo'', the last bit of [[spoiler: Sinclair's monologue gives away where he'll kill the Cyrollan ambassador.]] ''Pegasus Prime'' edits this out.

* MeaningfulName: The three robots in the first game are all named after Greek or Roman gods, and their names reflect their missions or abilities:
** Ares is sent on a mission to Mars. Ares is the Greek god of war, and the planet Mars is named after the Roman god of war.
** Poseidon is sent to a mission to the underwater complex of NORAD VI, fitting for a robot named after the god of the seas.
** Mercury possesses shapeshifting ability, evoking imagery of the chemical element mercury.



* WellIntentionedExtremist: Thrice! [[spoiler: First Sinclair by altering the timeline to avoid humanity joining TheFederation. However his plan [[GoneHorriblyRight goes horribly right]] and makes humanity way too xenophobic. And Agent 3/Michelle plans to give other species time travel technology, as [[HumansAreBastards she thinks that humanity can't be trusted with it alone]]. Problem is, it [[GoneHorriblyWrong goes horribly wrong]] when the ambassador of the new species that would have gotten it would have used to to take over the universe, as they're bitter over their dependency on others species just to leave their home planet. Even Ambassador Icarus, the person Michelle is helping, wants to better his people, he just wants to turn them into conquerors.]]

* BreakingTheFourthWall: Of the {{Missing Floor}}s in the apartment building, the elevator voice says "this floor has neither been modeled nor rendered". The 2014 rerelease of ''Pegasus Prime'' {{Ret Con}}s this to the second and third floors being under remodeling.

* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Every robot in the first game has a single cycloptic visual sensor on its head. In ''PegasusPrime'', there's one point where Gage scans Mercury from long distance, after he transformed into a complete human, clothes and all. The scan shows that [[RedEyesTakeWarning his eyes are blood red.]]

* DisneyAcidSequence: Time travel in ''Turbo'' looks like this, as a sequence of you drifting through rings and geometric shapes while a hard rock track plays, overlaid with voices you'd heard in the present [[spoiler: , including one from Elliot Sinclair]]. ''Pegasus Prime'' changes it to a quick, near-silent multicolored wormhole, and the second and third games simply show flybys of the time zone you're going to.

* BodyHorror: In the "[[RetGone Uncreated]]" death. ''Turbo'' depicts it as Agent 5 being erased from the legs up in a quick flash of light. ''Pegasus Prime'' shows it in a more graphic fashion, where it looks like Agent 5's face is being ''disintegrated layer by layer'', and his expression shows that '' [[AndIMustScream he's aware of it]] ''.
