* EldritchAbomination: The monster in ''2000''. It's unclear whether it's a robot, a living creature, or an alien ship, or even if it's actually from outer space and not just a movie prop gone berserk.

* FlyingSaucer: Alien invasions, although the ''[=SimCity=] 2000'' alien was a ball with four legs. You can fly one in ''[=SimCity=] 4'' with the Rush Hour expansion.

* CatharsisFactor: Nothing more relaxing than building up a city, then imagining your rival/enemy living in one of the residences, and then unleashing a UFO attack or meteor strike on said residence.

* ''[=SimCity=] 2000'' (1993) was the first major extension, replacing the 2D top-view with faux-3D isometric graphics, and introducing most of the features of later games: water pipelines, underground rail, highways, healthcare, education, rewards, a wider assortment of power plants, game scenarios, and a separate building editor, the SCURK ([=SimCity=] Urban Renewal Kit). Interestingly UK PC Gamer magazine still ranks this as the best [=SimCity=] despite its age. It is widely remembered as a port overdosed title, with every single console port made being a porting disaster.

* CosmeticAward: The "View" gift, while not costing anything, merely allows you to see your city tilted at an angle as if on a tabletop.



* ExpositionFairy: Dr. Wright in the SNES port.
* {{Leitmotif}}: In the SNES version, each city size has its own background music. Additionally, the music varies slightly with the season, being more mellow in winter, for example.

* UselessItem: In the SNES game, hospitals will randomly occupy a newly developing residental zone, but they will have no benefit on your city, taking away valuable space until bulldozed. Schools would occupy the same niche, but by getting three, six, and nine of them at once, you get the gift of libraries which help develop your other residential zones. Once you got the libraries, though, the schools were fair game to demolish.
