* AlwaysMale: With the exception the lioness and dairy cow, you will always be male, and you will always have a litter of sons. Eventually you've got to wonder where your mates are coming from if male births are so common.
** There are some other animal options that let you be female, e.g. Thompson's Gazelle.

* BadassAdorable: Some of the animals, like the Pomeranian. Watching the adorably modeled Poms tear the throats out of their prey is just downright hilarious.



* BearsAreBadNews: Especially if you play a herbivore. On the other hand, you can be the bad news bear. And if you're an animal relatively more powerful than a bear, like a Crocodile, then Bears really aren't bad news.
** Inverted in Act 10 of the story mode. There, the bear acts as an OldMaster to a displaced tosa.

* CatsAreMean: Everything from ordinary housecats to ''Smilodon''.''Smilodons'' are present in the game and all can be your enemies. In the story mode one mission pits you against "Fat Cat" who is particularly testy.



* CompetitiveBalance: Most of the predators fall into this, due to their dependency on fighting.
** LethalJokeCharacter: The pomeranian is weaker then even a cat. That doesn't stop it from killing wolves with an ambush attack though.
** JackOfAllStats: The Dogs, both pets and wild, are this being relatively durable with decent attack and movement speeds.
** FragileSpeedster: The Cheetah, Panther[[spoiler: and the two dinosaurs]] are a combination of this and GlassCannon. They hit ''hard'' and move very fast, but they aren't that much more durable then the higher tier dog species.
** MightyGlacier: The [[BEARSAreBadNews bears]] and the more powerful herbivores. They move slow, but have incredible stats in all other departments.
** LightningBruiser: The tiger and lions, especially the [[RuggedScar old, scarred one]]. They aren't as good as the specialists in any area, but they are often the 2nd best at ''absolutely everything'' making them extremely adept at surviving.

* LateToTheTragedy

to:

* LateToTheTragedyLateToTheTragedy: Humanity has already been wiped out by centuries when the game starts.
* LethalJokeCharacter:
** The pomeranian is weaker then even a cat and completely adorable. That doesn't stop it from killing wolves with an ambush attack.
** You can construct your own lethal joke character by obsessively buffing one of the weaker animals. The baby chick in particular is fun because it even gets a powersuit it can wear to augment its health.
* LightningBruiser: The tiger and lions, especially the [[RuggedScar old, scarred one]]. They aren't as good as the specialists in any area, but they are often the 2nd best at ''absolutely everything'' making them extremely adept at surviving.



* MagikarpPower: The Chick is barely able to move at all, until you mark all the areas in a zone and sleep in a bed. Then it matures into a fast-moving chicken. (until you mate again, d'oh!)
** The same can be said of herbivores in general. Most of them are slow, only have one attack (as to a carnivour's 3 or more) and only have speed and stamina going for them. And some don't even have that... Then you get things like a hippo, or an elephant [[CurbStompBattle and...]]
* NintendoHard: One of the most frequent complaints with the game is this, and it can be extremely frustrating at times, you can get all the way to the Suburbs, only for the toxicity to rise like crazy, and when you try to leave to escape the toxicity the only way out has become full of angry hippos who can kill you in just a few hits.
** About Year 70 almost all animals in any given area spawn as packs of lions and dinosaurs.

* ThatOneLevel: Unlocking the lion in survival mode. The area you have to take over gets flooded with dozens upon dozens of lions each one more then a match for the tiger. Your best bet is having a full pack and simply ignoring the lions altogether, hoping to cap the points before they kill you.

* SuicidalOverconfidence:Occasionally an animal no chance of victory even in a large pack will atempt to fight you. This result in hilarious situations such as a dinosaur fending off a huge pack of house cats or a lion staring dumb-founded at a rabbit that wants to go mano-a-mano.
