Added DiffLines:

* ExtremeOmnivore: Hunter can eat any dead thing's corpse, even lizards, and they'll generally want to given how much less nutritious batflies and vegetation are to them.


* OffingTheAnnoyance: If, after speaking with him, you linger in his chamber despite his insistence that you leave, he'll get cross with you and kill you by using his gravity distortion engine to slam you into the walls.

* HardModePerks: Hunter is a better fighter than the other two slugcats (at least [[YourDaysAreNumbered until its cycle counter reaches 0), starts with more karma than them (ironically enough, they're described as "karmically imbalanced" despite this), and has some lore tidbits only accessible by playing its story.

you [[spoiler: right away.]]


Added DiffLines:

* YourDaysAreNumbered: He even draws comparisons between his and Hunter's affliction, though unlike the Slugcat's his is explicitly described as a kind of rot.


A small quadruped animal that looks like... well, a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin cat with an elongated body, making it look like a slug.]] The particular slugcat you play as begins the game as part of a tribe, but gets caught up in the rains of the environment and gets sucked away from his/her/it's family.

* BadassNormal: Most threats in the game can kill you in one hit. But with a bit of skill and composure, you can also kill most threats in the game.

family. Two other are playable in single player if a different level of challenge is desired: the yellow, slower, but easier to handle Monk, and the red, stronger, but much more challenging Hunter.

* BadassNormal: Most threats in the game can kill you in one hit. But with a bit of skill and composure, you can also kill most threats in the game.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: All 3 have the capacity to tame lizards and befriend other creatures, but Monk is especially well suited for it - not only are predators less common for Monk, they also tame creatures more easily than the other two.



* PyrrhicVictory: [[spoiler: Slugcat eventually does reunite with it's family... in the afterlife. It's not all bad since the world is a serious CrapsackWorld, and Slugcat is now free from the cycle of violence that defined it's life.]]

to:

* GoodScarsEvilScars: Hunter is scarred from their time surviving in the wilds.
* HardModePerks: Hunter is a better fighter than the other two slugcats (at least [[YourDaysAreNumbered until its cycle counter reaches 0), starts with more karma than them (ironically enough, they're described as "karmically imbalanced" despite this), and has some lore tidbits only accessible by playing its story.

to:

\n* YourDaysAreNumbered: Potentially averted, albeit at great pains, but Hunter has a strict time limit that ticks down every time they hibernate. Once it reaches zero, it begins to suffer seizures and reduced capabilities, and if it is killed from that point on that save file [[PermaDeath permanently ends]], though it's entirely possible to struggle through the game even once your time's technically up.




!!Big Sis Moon

!!Big Sis !!Looks to the Moon



* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Justified since iterator memories are stored inside "neurons", small floating probes, and Moon lost most of hers, so she remembers perfectly the memories stored in the few neurons she has left, but forgot the rest.


to:

* CoolBigSis: Calls herself "Big Sis Moon" in communication logs, is generally sympathetic to everyone around her, even Five Pebbles, and will act as this to you if you're civil. Especially if you bring her more neurons.
* CuteMachines: A charming little green creature who acts as the avatar for a supercomputer.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Or at least the ones that don't want to eat her neurons. She's very friendly and will read information stored on pearls to you provided you haven't stolen any of what little remains of her memory.

rest. Taking any of them for yourself makes this worse, and will eventually kill her.




* {{Jerkass}}: He's a rather cynical guy, to say the least. [[spoiler: He's also partially responsible for the state of the world, but Big Sis Moon is rather sympathetic towards him, saying that his inability to leave the world behind is tormenting him and driving him to insanity.]]

An iterator stationed on the far west side of Shoreline. While she begins the game deactivated, the player can restore her somehow- if they know how.

* SilentProtagonist: Slugcats have no vocalizations, period. Even when struck, Slugcat will refuse to make a sound. That being said, cutscenes and animation show a surprisingly varied amount of FacialDialogue, showing that it's definitely smart enough to emote.
* {{Reincarnation}}: [[spoiler: Slugcat is effectively immortal- every time it dies, it simply reincarnates at it's last resting point. The end game is finding a way to escape this cycle of reincarnation and move on to the next life.]]

Added DiffLines:

* GeniusBruiser: Well, genius for a small animal, anyways. Contextual clues (like how it can understand language so easily) show that slugcats have at least human levels of intelligence, and the little bastards can be surprisingly tough to take down if they're well armed.
