* NoCanonForTheWicked: Averted in a very strange way (and one not very popular with fans) -- all the missions are canon, but unlike e.g. ''Franchise/{{Starcraft}}'' where one campaign follows the next, instead the player plays a mission as Aramon, then one as Taros, and so on...including at least two cases where he first has to command one side and win a battle, then take over the other one and undo his previous victory.

* PaletteSwap: There are different terrain designs, but they are purely cosmetically different, as opposed to the original TA's different planets with different characteristics such as varying resource levels and preventing the use of certain units.

* ArtificialZombie: Creon Automatons are corpses wired with steampunk cybernetics to make them into soldiers.


Added DiffLines:

* CaptainErsatz: King Elsin is a tall, handsome, saintly fellow with a BadassBeard and ''True Resurrection'' as his "Target: Corpse" power. Two guesses, first one's just practice.


Added DiffLines:

* FrickinLaserBeams: Creon's advanced defense tower is a mirror-and-lens array that focuses sunlight into a powerful laser, strong enough to vaporize a man (or zombie or half-animal berzerker) and all his equipment. Works a treat on siege engines too.


Added DiffLines:

** The Taros advanced defense tower is a guy with a lightning-shooting trident standing on top of a padoga.

* LightningGun: Used by Creonite construction units and their Shock Troopers, who wouldn't look that out of place in ''CommandAndConquerRedAlert''. Lightning is also used as a weapon by some of the other sides, but there it's magical in origin.

* AllThereInTheManual: The manual, that is, and also a lot of background information in the form of HTML files on the CD. Those who read it all were surprised (especially given the previous TotalAnnihilation's scant storyline) to find that the background of Darien was at least as well developed as ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'''s Azeroth was at the time.

This had the unfortunate effect of making the plot utterly incomprehensible to anyone who hadn't done the reading.

* MageMarksman: One of Aramon's best units is the mage archer. They have longer range then regular archers and can enchant their arrows with devastating spell effects.

** Creon is all about Brute Force. They take the strengths of the other factions and turn them up a notch. [[MightyGlacier Tough, often damaging machines of cold Steel but rather slow]]. They're also far more resource dependent than the other factions due to their more expensive equipment.
* ActionBomb: The Tarosian Kamikaze Rat unit.

** You then get a mission where, apart from occasionally holding a couple of easily defensible choke points to ensure the guns don't get flanked, you get to watch your cannons effortlessly slaughter a massive onrush of Tarosian troops. You don't even have to give the cannons any orders.

*ACommanderIsYou: Aramon is Balanced with a wide array of all-rounded units and especially strong base defenses. Aramon tactics generally revolve around building an impregnable fortress that could fend off any threat long before they could even get close while building a strong army in the background to crush the remainders with. Fitting of their association with Earth, they have a very strong ground force but somewhat lacking in navy and air power.
** Veruna is Ranger. While naval warfare is their specialty, being associated with Water after all, they can perform quite well on land. They have a handful of powerful ranged units and fast moving raiders which can easily close in the gap with the enemy. [[GlassCannon While hard-hitting, they don't last long in a straight up fight]]. They also have pathetic air power.
** Taros is much more Balanced than Aramon. Their army is not very flashy but consists of enough units to cover land, air, and sea. Good ground forces, pretty nasty flying units, and a handful of amphibious units to deal with naval threats. Likes to use [[KillItWithFire Fire]] a lot. Not too shabby on the defensive either, just isn't as good as the other factions.
** Zhon is the Guerrilla faction. They're the only faction that does not build bases. Instead, they can build their army on the fly via MookMaker and only build structures for harvesting mana, defense, and healing. This allows them to easily gain ground rapidly and launch surprise attacks from anywhere since you never know where exactly are they building their army. Associated with the Wind, they have a formidable airforce.
** Creon is all about Brute Force. They take the strengths of the other factions and turn them up a notch. [[MightyGlacier Tough, often damaging machines of cold Steel but rather slow]]. They're also far more resource dependent than the other factions due to their more expensive equipment.



* CoolAirship: The Aerial Juggernaut, Creon's answer to the four nation's sacred dragons.



* ElementalNation; Aramon is Earth, Veruna is Water, Taros is Fire, Thirsha is Air, and Creon would be Steel.

** As does Creon, namely the Fire Wagon, Neo Dragon, and their monarch. The Fire Wagon uses a normal flamethrower while the Neo Dragon and Mendalos The Sage uses something called the Blue Flame.



* KillItWithIce: Aramon acolyte's "Hail Shower" attack, and Taros weather witch's "Ice Storm". Oddly, water based Veruna doesn't have any units using ice as means of fighting.
