Video Game / Final Combat
is a Chinese Hero Shooter
still in development that draws quite a bit of inspiration from other FPSes. The official site
is once again open to non-Chinese IPs, but you can also still read (most of) the news from this
To avoid the Internet Backdraft
, there will be no further description. This page is here to collect tropes, not fan the Flame War
on either side of the debate.
- Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: The Ragdoll Physics occasionally results in this after a player gets killed. (Freeze frame, complete with Panty Shot.)
- Allegedly Free Game: Crafting, hats, accessories, upgraded weapons...this game has lots of revenue enhancing devices.
- The Ace: The Striker.
- Ace Pilot: Available as an alternate skin for the Rocket.
- Acceptable Breaks from Reality: Even the thin wood or a bunch of wheatgrass won't burn down or destroy them.
- Artificial Limbs: The Rocket's alternate skin (Divine Fist) & The Mechanism's left arm in all incarnations.
- All There in the Manual: The official site has articles discussing information about the characters not available anywhere else.
- Almighty Janitor: In the original Fatman's backstory, he sold fish on the Gulf of Mexico before the Deep Horizon oil spill; of characters from non-military/mercenary backgrounds, we also have people from walks of life such as former Sad Clown, Parkour expert, Idol Singer, Adventurer Archaeologist, and so on.
- And Your Reward Is Clothes: Well not just ordinary reskins; the rarer the skin, the more buffs that apply on that skin.
- Ax-Crazy: The Rocket.
- Badass Army: Each side has one.
- Badass Boast/Catch Phrase: Every class has one—even the alternate skins have their own quotes.
- Badass Mustache: The Rocket leader has a rather Hitler-esque one in his class' promotional video.
- Batman Can Breathe in Space: 1 of the map is technically this, unless the Firebat equip alien skin or Fatman equip space helmet.
- Betting Mini-Game: Instead of leveling up in the usual way, you can try at Machine Slots to obtain hats, accessories, and weapons. The shoot the cans game is for obtainable weapons only, or rarely, Gold-themed weapons.

- Bifauxnen: The Mechanism's current appearance.
- Brand X: The Fatman listens to a "Portable Dictator" in his promotional video and the Sniper uses a "SNIPER GUN" brand sniper rifle.

- Bribing Your Way to Victory: Upgraded weapons (which expire after a certain amount of time) can be purchased with real world money.
- But Thou Must: This survey is so oblivious.
- Captain Obvious: The Sniper's sniper rifle is labeled "Sniper gun", as if we couldn't figure that out already.

White (default, 1 star) > Green (2 stars) > Teal (3 stars) > Violet (4 stars) > Orange (5 stars) > Red (6 stars) is canonical order of rarity. No aura (Level 1-3) > Green aura (Level 4-6) > Teal aura (Level 7-9) > Pink aura (Level 10-12) > Orange aura (Level 13-15) > Rainbow aura (Level 16) is canonical order of grade level.
- Color-Coded Multiplayer: Red team versus Blue team, except in the character class introduction videos, where it's edited to look like there's quite a bit of team-killing going on.
- Cosmetic Award: Starting Horoscope Armor Update, 4 stars and above of certain hats, costumes, weapons & accessories will have set bonuses.
- Cowboy Cop: Available as an alternate skin for the Sniper and the Mechanism.
- Clothing Damage: Hats and accessories accumulate damage that can't be healed except via respawn, though the stats associated with them aren't affected.
- Cutscene Power to the Max: This trailer, like all trailers, exaggerate's each class's abilities: Striker can backflip to evade rockets, Fatman's bullets can penetrate through wood, and Sniper's good at hand-to hand combat. However, they don't have any of these skills in the game.
