* {{Area51}}: Rosdale Canyon.
* ArtificialBrilliance: Used in the most annoying way possible as the AI turns out to pretty much be total coward. The second a fight stops going their way a CPU run, hide and grab at every single health power-up in the arena. The issue is only compounded by the AI's tendency to GangUpOnTheHuman leading to times injured monsters will run off and heal themselves while non-wounded monsters will swarm around you and kick the shit out of you.

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Cerebulon. [[spoiler: After defeating his first two mecha-based forms, you might think that battling his physical form would be easier.]] You would be wrong. He has blindingly fast melee attacks, so much so that most characters can't get an attack in once his combo starts. You will then be thrown across the map, missing a large portion of your health.

** To go into detail about Agamo, his special attack it to rip his head off and use it as a weapon. Most levels are typically littered with weapons a minute into a fight, so why use him? As mentioned earlier weapons restore energy, so odds are you'll ''always'' have a better weapon than what's lying around. In addition, this weapon can be made to explode on command, either when your opponent is dumb enough to pick it up after a throw or (with a bit of timing,) after it bounces off of them from a throw.



* ExcusePlot: The aftermaths of a failed alien invasion has spawned a whole bunch of monsters. Take control of one of them and beat the others up!

* AmericaSavesTheDay: From the star logo, it looks like Robo-47 was made by YanksWithTanks. Averted if the player character wipes out the task force sent with Robo-47.

* CombatPragmatist: You want to win this game? Then learn how to fight ''dirty''! Throw radio antennae to spear enemies, blow them to smithereens with explosive gas tanks, pick up chunks of debris and bash monsters' heads in, use generators as massive tasers, or send a building crashing down onto someone's uglky head. You're frequently outnumbered by enemies that don't play fair as it is, so you have to be more cunning than them.

* [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys [[KillerGorilla Congar]] - [[Film/KingKong A giant gorilla.]]



* AndYourRewardIsClothes: Most of the things you can unlock in the game are alternate skins for the monsters.



* AliensAndMonsters

to:

* AliensAndMonstersAliensAndMonsters: An alien invasion is precisely what caused the monster to cause in the first place. The aliens also constitute the final foes after the player defeats all the other monsters.
* AliensAreBastards: They invaded Earth for no discernible reason. Of course they're bastards!



* BigCreepyCrawlies: All of Preytor's assorted skins are of some kind of giant insect. The default form is a giant green praying mantis, the second is a red ant, and the fourth is a hornet.
* BigRedDevil: Togera's fourth skin is a gigantic crimson demon that honestly could pass as the Devil were he a kaiju.



** Togera is Franchise/{{Godzilla}}.
** Congar is Film/KingKong.

to:

** Togera is Franchise/{{Godzilla}}.
Franchise/{{Godzilla}}. His third skin serves as one for Mecha-Godzilla.
** Congar is Film/KingKong. He also has one for [[Film/KingKongEscapes Mechani-Kong]] with his third skin.

Added DiffLines:

* HeroAntagonist: The HumongousMecha enemies to encounter in adventure mode are man-made creations designed to fight and kill monsters like you. That aside, chances are they're going to cause just as much destruction as you will, which calls their heroism into question.


Added DiffLines:

* MightyGlacier: As ironic as it is to call him a glacier, but this is Magmo in a nutshell. He hits the hardest and is the most durable of the monsters, but he runs slowly, his missile attack is sluggish, and a lot of his attacks have a bit of a windup. Agamo also applies to a lesser extent.


Added DiffLines:

* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Magmo'a got four arms of pain.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainProtagonist: You're a giant monster or mecha that has gained self-awareness, and the only thing you care about is blowing stuff up and taking out the competition. Human lives mean absolutely nothing to you!
