* SocializationBonus: ''Trauma Center: New Blood'' can be completed entirely in singleplayer, but having a competent partner in co-op makes some operations much easier: not only do you have a second pair of hands, but you can use both Healing Touches in the same operation.

* CoOpMultiplayer: ''New Blood'' lets two players operate together. ''Trauma Team'' does as well and attempts to balance the roles of the two players in various ways, depending on the type of operation. Diagnostics and Forensics are one player only, although the second player can still use their Wii Remote cursor to point out things for their partner.

* RushBoss: Onyx of ''New Blood'' has an incredibly deadly attack that can end the patient if it is allowed to execute it a few times. However, if the player can find the real copy quickly enough each time, they can complete the level without seeing Onyx attack at all.



* UnexpectedGameplayChange: The games like to throw in at least one mission that has nothing to do with operating, such as defusing a bomb in the original and ''Second Opinion''.
** Using a scalpel, forceps and laser. It's just like operating, only the patient's a mechanical device that can kill you if you mess up! Additionally, the bomb is completely different between the two games.

Added DiffLines:

** A very common strategy for clearing the first bonus operation in ''Under the Knife'', which is easily one of the most difficult of the operations, is to not treat the lacerations made by Kyriaki and simply keep the patient alive through liberal use of antibiotic gel and stabilizer in between treatment steps. [[note]]This works as it exploits the presence of an upper limit of injuries that can be displayed on screen. By not treating the lacerations, Kyriaki will eventually stop attacking while you're working.[[/note]]
** Getting XS for 4-6 of ''Second Opinion'' has a criteria: "Follow 10 of Victor's orders." If you work quickly, you'll only manage to get nine. To get the tenth, you need to let the patient's vitals plummet a bit when Pempti reacts adversely to the medication, after which Victor will tell you to raise his vitals before proceeding.

* CaptainErsatz: Diagnostician [[http://www.intothelabyrinth.net/atlus/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/traumateamchargabriel.jpg Gabriel Cunningham]] from ''Trauma Team'' looks and acts very similar to [[Anime/CowboyBebop Spike Spiegel]], down to smoking damaged cigarettes. Too bad SteveBlum isn't voicing him. Some fans also think he looks like an anime version of ''Series/{{House}}''.

* ObstructiveBureaucrat: This series loves to subvert this trope - the government officials such as Anderson, Holden, and Tillman end up doing some badass things to save people, even at great personal cost.
* Played straight once in ''Under The Knife'', where one tells Sidney off for shipping life-saving GUILT medication to various hospitals because they aren't FDA approved yet.

* JustPlaneWrong: ''Under The Knife'' has an operation called "Miracle at 9,800 ft.', referring to the operation taking place aboard a passenger jet. However, 9,800 feet is far too low of a cruising altitude for such aircraft; they usually cruise at 30,000-40,000 feet. Most likely, this is a case of UnitConfusion and the title is meant to be "Miracle at 9,800 ''m''" (about 32,000 feet).
