** The [[Komato Anihilator's]] NeckLift is this to all Tasen. For Iji however, is merely deals HP damage.

** [[spoiler:Tor]]. He repeatedly proves that he can jump a mile in seconds, which is orders of magnitude faster than Iji could ever keep up with. All he has to do to defeat her is ''leave'', and let the [[spoiler:Alpha Strike]] finish her off. Instead he keeps fighting no matter how badly Iji is mauling him. Given his dialogue it comes across as a weird kind of mercy. He has the ability to leave, but chooses to stay to give Iji a chance to fight for her people.

* LongLived: [[spoiler:Looking at the logbook that names every single Tasen and Komato you've killed shows that the oldest of them are nearing 300 starturns.]]



* TheDeadHaveNames: As of version 1.7, [[spoiler:the area right before the FinalBoss has two logbooks, containing the name, rank, and birthplace of every Tasen and Komato killed by the player. They're going to be long reads if you've been killing 'em all.]]

* YourHeadAsplode: Inverted, your ''everything but head'' asplode. Taking down Assassin Asha causes his entire body to [[LudicrousGibs turn to flash-fried atomic meat]], except for his perfectly preserved head that bounces around for a few seconds.

to:

** See TheDeadHaveNames above. [[spoiler:The logbook subject even says '''"Tasen/Komato casualties confirmed as caused by the "Human Anomaly" with clear intent"'''. If you played a pacifist run previously, seeing Vateilika's name among them can hurt.]].

By the end, [[spoiler:you're trying to stop a Class 5.]] The [[spoiler:Komato]] are also working towards being able to pull off a Class X, and you can get a weapon made to test one of the concepts involved.

* CycleOfHurting: Since the Velocithor bypasses your MercyInvincibility, it causes stun-lock if you ever get caught in its beam. [[GoodNewsBadNews The good news]] is that the Velocithor is only used by one person besides yourself. [[GoodNewsBadNews The bad news]] is that, on the harder modes, the beam can last longer than even a completely full health bar.

[[GoodNewsBadNews The bad news]] is that, on the harder modes, the other user's beam can last longer than even a completely full maxed-out health bar.



* DamageSpongeBoss: The sentinel is normally a PuzzleBoss because there are environmental hazards you are supposed to knock it into for massive damage. However, taking the easy way out means you miss out on a supercharge. If you want to beat it the hard way, you'll have to start stocking up on ammo long in advance. In fact it's not possible unless you take a few levels of Assimilate just to be able to ''carry enough ammo'' at one time to kill it.

** Chances are, if you think of some sort of exploit to use [[spoiler:such as using certain secret weapons on certain bosses]], either a character will comment on it.
** If you die to [[spoiler:Asha in sector X]], but have a checkpoint, fighting him again will cause him to express his delight over getting to kill you twice. But if you are very, very willing to go out of your way for an easter egg, finding a second checkpoint and fighting him again will cause him to ''flip out''. The latter was added in a later patch after someone pointed out it was possible.
** If you lie still for long enough after getting hit (which knocks you down), enemies will think you're dead and ignore you (unless they step on you).

* DiscOneNuke: You can actually make a nuke during the first half of the game. It oneshots every single Assassin in the game, including Asha. Except for his second fight, where, due to being on familiar territory, actually manages to [[BeyondTheImpossible dodge a nuke in an enclosed space.]]
* DiscountLesbians: Two of the female Tasen soldiers in the game are lovers. None of the Tasen soldiers (except [[PlayfulHacker Yukabacera]]) depicted on screen are male.

** Not really genocide, but the Tasen Alpha Struck a [[spoiler: Komato homeworld]] in the past, leaving only one survivor. That survivor would later become [[spoiler: [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Iosa the Invincible]], who is one of the main reasons why the Tasen are almost extinct, and in a killer run, exterminates the last of the Tasen race.]] Again: [[OhCrap whoops]].

* InfinityMinusOneSword: The Plasma Cannon, which cuts through most early enemies like butter and can be gotten in the 5th sector. There is also the MPFB devastator, which does the most damage of any normal weapon and is the only reasonable way to kill Annihilators or the Sentinel. However, it has a knockback effect, and ammo is scarce.
* [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus One Gun]]: The Massacre, [[spoiler:picked up after getting a zero kill win.]], and the [[GameBreaker Null Driver]], [[spoiler:for which you must unlock ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING in the game and get EVERY possible achievement.]] In regular playthroughs, however, this role is taken by the Velocithor V2-10. Deals incredibly fast, constant damage to anything in its path, and it can even shoot through walls. With it (and its little brother, the Cyclic Fusion Ignition System), you can stun-lock pretty much everything except Annihilators into oblivion. Only downsides are that it eats through ammo like popcorn and requires you to expend 27 stat points to even get a chance at obtaining it.

Kiron [[WhatTheHellHero calls her out]] for being a murderous lunatic, and orders the Alpha Strike to go ahead as planned. Origin is rendered completely uninhabitable and the Komato return home to a cheering crowd]].

* FacelessGoons: Subverted: while we never see an alien's face (the closest we get is a close-up of [[spoiler:General Tor's]] shattered helmet, which only reveals the inner layers of the visor, [[spoiler:and some silhouettes of civilian Komato in the bad ending]]), a few grunts are given names and are fleshed out into full characters.
