Added DiffLines:

* AmazonChaser: Alias seems to be one. He has the major hots for Cilia, a dancer in the bar who's a member of a species where the females are the dominant and strongest sex. Further, if he tries to kiss her she'll knock him to the ground with an uppercut and he'll whistle after picking himself up and be even ''more'' interested in possibly asking her for a date (though Zelda talks him out of it).


Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: Overall the game is a comedy and has a number of hilarious parts and flashbacks... but it also has some rather serious parts (especially one flashback which is a trading simulation and another which involves helping out LaResistance), and then there's the creepy parts when the genuinely scary BigBad taunts you over your PA and some of the death scenes you can experience.

* MeaningfulName: The main character, Alias Node.

* MeaningfulName: The main character, Alias Node. In computing terminology, "node" refers to a connection point for sending and receiving information, while "alias" refers to symbolic alternate names for information. Put it together, and it's essentially a descriptor of Alias' interrogation technique.



* RingMenu: Each object has a menu of a variety of context-sensitive actions attached to it, rather than only the standard Use/Examine/Take.

Added DiffLines:

* FutureImperfect: One of the areas in the game is a historical museum in the form of a [[TheWildWest Wild West]] bar, with EntertaininglyWrong descriptions for everything. (Did you know, for instance, that diving helmets were used by cowboys to help defend against Indians and Nazis?) Alias even lampshades it at one point, snarkily noting he thinks the bar's creators did about fifteen minutes of research.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: The opening cutscenes and various flashbacks strongly suggest Alias and Maksh are this, though Maksh also has a wife and kidlets.

* VocalDissonance: [[spoiler:The BigBad has a deep, NightmareFuel-inducing voice whenever he taunts you. But when at the end of the game you finally see his true form, he turns out to be this utterly adorable-looking little blue alien thing.]]

* PlanetOfHats: Aliens tend to conform to various stereotypes, with the exception of humans (who are described as the "vanilla" species) and the betentacled aliens that inhabit this planet.

Added DiffLines:

* IOweYouMyLife: Taken to hilariously ludicrous degrees. Every time your partner contacts you to beg you to hurry up and rescue him before the BigBad does something horrible to him, you get a flashback about how he risked his life to save/help you or your mother, as a guilt trip to motivate you. Which ends up easily equaling over 10 different times he's done so. And it turns out that there's actually even ''more'' times beyond that, and Alias and Maksh can't even agree on which ones actually "count".
