* AwesomeMcCoolName: Keetsie and Leo Braz da Cunha, FX artists.
* DevelopmentGag: A long history of them.
** Just one example. A long-standing bug was that, if the game couldn't find the proper model to display for a hostage, it would use the first model on the list -- a [[ThoseWackyNazis 5th Column]] [[MechaMook Mek Man]]. Fast forward several issues to two 5th Column {{Mook}}s discussing whether disguising robots in hard light holograms will work. And in an example of [[{{Irony}} Cosmic Irony]], said dialogue happened in the issue which broke ''that'' bug (now instead of a Mek Man there is another model, a 5th leader).
* FanNickname: When the Council were first introduced, they were known by many as "Sazis" or "Spazis" (for "Space Nazis"). Seems to have died out, though some still call the masked Galaxy soldiers "[[MaskedLuchador luchadores]]".
** Rommy and the Fuzzies, for Romulus Augustus and his three Nictus, who look like floating balls of purple black smoke. Boobcat for the new Praetoria revamp of [[{{Stripperiffic}} Bobcat's costume]]. Hami-O's for Hamidon Origin Enhancements. Quite a few signature characters have shortened versions for ease of use: States, Posi, [=BABs=], Manti, GW, Scorp, [[AndZoidberg and DocQ]].
** Flambimbeaux.
** The new tutorial level for ''Going Rogue'' has been referred to as the "Praetorial".
** The underground city of Orangebagel.
** Certain terms for players who play "hybrid" character, like "scranker" for a player who plays a tank but acts like a scrapper, or vice-versa. More [[http://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Category:Archetype_Mash_Up here.]]
* [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Screwed By NCSoft]]: A lot of people were not happy with Creator/NCSoft's decision to close Paragon Studios. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement Let's leave it at that.]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally, it was going to be set in UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks.
** Apparently, Jack Emmert (the lead developer) was planning on implementing a skills system. This never came to be, with the Invention System instead.
