* ExcusePlot: The game began with one; you are part of a clan of space ninjas, fighting to push fascist space assholes and their army of degenerate clones out of the known galaxy, and crush some corrupt corporate goons, ''and'' deal with a '[[TheVirus technocyte plague]]' that's overrunning countless ships, stations, and colonies. Later updates have been adding more and more lore, backstory, and character depth; so far this has culminated in the Second Dream, a ''major'' WhamEpisode that heavily invokes NothingIsTheSameAnymore.

** One possible mission style for the Archwing is called the [[Franchise/StarWars Trench Run]], and it involves the Tenno zipping through canyon-like passageways and through ship vent shafts. Speaking of Star Wars, a secret order of samurai-influenced warriors fighting against a corrupt empire that fields cloned stormtroopers and a galaxy-spanning corrupt corporation that relies on robots seems familiar. The Grineer Dargyn (the standard Grineer enemy in Archwing) also shares the shape and design of the Slave One, albeit scaled down and unable to turn into a tank.

** The Arbiters of Hexis are a group of Tenno who reject the "Tenno are bloodthisrty assassins and nothing more" concept, instead focusing on honor, scholarly pursuits, and martial perfection, and avoid violence except when it's necessary to uphold justice; they want to keep the galaxy in balance, and only turn to violence when it's necessary to maintain that balance. The Red Veil are fanatical, bloodthirsty (but intelligent and professional) warriors who believe that, in a galaxy full of brutal tyrants with armies of clones, world-sundering factories, and scorched-earth military tactics, corrupt profit-hungry CEO opportunists who backstab anyone and everyone to make a quick buck and spend all their resources and creative power inventing new ways to kill things, and vicious monsters that can't be reasoned with and kill anything that moves, KillEmAll is the best approach to sorting out the conflicts plaguing the galaxy.

* GratuitousJapanese: Tenno is the word for "Emperor". It could also be translated as "From Heaven", both of which apply well to your cadre of space ninjas.

* ChainsawGood: In the earliest versions of the game, Grineer fielded 'sawblades', melee units wielding what was essentially a chain buzzsaw that dealt a fair bit of damage - more than the baton-wielding goons that replaced them. They received a spiritual successor in the ''Ripkas'', chainsaw fists that the Tenno can use.



** As it turns out, [[spoiler:the Tenno have faces- but they're not inside the helmets at all. They're fairly ordinary-looking teenagers. However what lies beneath the helmets of the ''Warframes'' is still unknown.]]

** For lazy Tenno, the Helios Sentinel can do this for the player automatically.

Digital Extremes is unusually interactive with their playerbase and frequently make balance and aesthetic changes based on the loudest and most persistent complaints, contrary to the tendency of general MMO service providers to fall back on vague statistics or appeal to a SilentMajority. As a result the game is rapidly evolving as it grows. The developers even caught Sony's eye and was invited to bring the game onto the {{Playstation 4}} as a launch title with promises of a whole new development team for the console version.

* {{Terraform}}: Corpus outposts on Venus and Mars are set in snowy areas, strongly implied to be due to the Orokin, while Phobos has a breathable desert atmosphere. Earth itself was turned into a gigantic jungle to preserve the cities underneath the flora. You are also sent to missions on Earth to ''stop'' the Grineer's attempts at terraforming Earth for themselves by destroying their machines being used to poison the jungles.

** Kela de Thaym likes to talk a big brave game about dying in combat in Rathuum, but when her team loses, she [[SoreLoser decides to call it a mistrial and tries to kill the prisoners she was trying to convict... after the Tenno defeated her judges fair and square.]] She spends half her fight hidden behind a big barrier and trying to remotely kill the Warframes. The closer she gets to defeat, the more dumbfounded and desperate she is, before ending on a particularly pathetic note, complete with her audience booing her.

* DefeatMeansFriendship: Killing a death squad sent after you by a Syndicate can provide you with a blueprint to make a few specter copies of that unit.

* DoubleEntendre: When the secondary weapon is selected in the Arsenal, you get a good view at the crotch of your Warframe. [[SapientShip Ordis]] likes to ask if you are enjoying the view quite often during those moments.

* CallBack: A few to closed beta.
** The Lotus would often announce 'it's the Grineer' on Grineer tilemaps, or if the Grineer invaded a Corpus or Infested tilemap. [[GoodBadBugs Oftentimes, the Grineer would fail to spawn.]] During open beta, Darvo exclaims (during a raid on the Corpus) "it's the Grin- er, definitely the Corpus".
** Grineer used to speak English, and [[WelcomeToCorneria one of their oft-repeated lines]] was [[TakeCover "stay close to the walls"]] when Tenno ambushed them. Later, Kela de Thaym's rework sneers at the Grineer masses for being "wall-hugging cowards" during the Rathuum event.
