* SolidGoldPoop: One famous site in the Low Life world, is a place where a giant has died. It has since been turned into a mine, where Low Lifers go to harvest the giant's earwax. Is the earwax magical? Nope. It's just plain earwax, but there's tons of it and in a world as impoverished as Mutha Oith, all that earwax is a treasure trove of goodies.


A campaign setting for TabletopGame/SavageWorlds, Low Life is technically a post-apocalyptic fantasy setting, in that it takes place on earth, after the fall of human society, and injects fantasy elements into the world rather than sci-fi. That's about where the similarities to anything else end.

* CuteMonsterGirl - Averted. The females of each race are just as disgusting as the males - in the rare cases when you can even tell the difference.
* JesusWasWayCool - Not surprising since his legend has been merged with that of Elvis.
* MixAndMatchCritters - Tizn'ts are named for their mix-and-match nature, as in: "Tizn't a Bodul, tizn't a Horc, tizn't a toy car, tizn't a rubber ducky, tizn't a...
* OurMonstersAreWeird - Along with what was already mentioned, there are also sentient lumps of crap, MixAndMatchCritters of just about any possible configuration (yet who are still one single species), goblin/orc things made of or constantly covered in snot, and "elves" that look like ugly big-nosed smurfs with a huge chip on their shoulder. Once again, those are just among the ''PC races''.
* PlayerArchetypes - This is one setting where [[TheLoonie loonies]] can fit in very well.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy - Horcs. Then again, maybe they're [[AlwaysChaoticEvil just a**holes]].
* ReligionOfEvil - [[RougeAnglesOfSatin Stanismists]] wear their selfishness and amoral behavior with obsessive pride.
