* CanisLatinicus: All the PettingZooPeople have taxonomical names that ''end'' in ''Sapiens'' but are of different ''genus''; for example, Jade's "uncle", Pey'j, is a "Sus Sapiens" or "Wise Pig."

* ''VideoGame/{{Bioforge}}'': Drain the sweet, sweet alien battery [[spoiler:you got from the first alien leader]] too much (either by healing or firing your arm cannon), and you will not have enough power to [[spoiler:charge up your escape vehicle]].

Added DiffLines:

* UnwinnableByMistake: This game is notoriously prone to game-breaking bugs that will end your progress if you save after encountering them.
** The most common is the dreaded "lost partner" glitch, where Jade's NPC ally will either fail to spawn where they need to, or become incapable of doing a certain action that's required for you to continue. In particular, during TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon, if you attempt to backtrack right after [[spoiler:releasing Pey'j from his crystalline prison]] but before [[spoiler:spying on the BigBad's meeting with his [[TheDragon Dragon]] and taking a picture of them]], you are guaranteed to get stuck. Definitely make a note of backing up your save data before you fly the Beluga to [[spoiler:the moon]].
** One area has an enemy that drops a necessary key when defeated. However, a bug occasionally causes the key to spawn in the wrong place, making it unreachable. Worse is that the spot where this happens is right next to a save spot. A player unaware that they're supposed to be picking up a key might save after the fight and find themselves stuck.
** If you don't take Pey'j's Boots from a Locker, then you can't go back and get them later when you need the randomly generated code to get the spaceship you need to finish the game.

* TrueCompanions: Just before the meeting the final boss, Jade invokes this near literally with Double H and Pey'j (the CrowningMusicOfAwesome helps).

* OminousLatinChanting: The song [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome "Dancing With [=DomZ=],"]] the final boss theme, "Sins of the Fathers," and many other themes involving the [=DomZ=].

Added DiffLines:

* BlaseBoast: Pey'j, accidentally. [[spoiler: When Double H relates to him about being trapped in a mind-wiping machine for 16 hours and barely got out intact, Pey'j casually mentions he was in there for three weeks.]]


* ForgotToPayTheBill: In the opening cutscene, the shield protecting Jade's house from alien invasion gets shut off because the bill wasn't paid.

to:

** Jade can smack around armored soldiers and aliens with her wooden staff, which glows at the ends, and has an unexplained Super Attack she has to charge up. She also takes minimal damage from hammer strikes and point-blank mine explosions, and doesn't have the technology and bulk like Pey'j or Double H. [[spoiler:Turns out it's not just RuleOfFun, or the game's ''Zelda'' inspirations; she actually has preternatural abilities.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MegaMicrobes: A good number of animals that can be photographed are gigantic one-celled organisms, especially in the Ancient Mine.


* PermanentlyMissableContent: Averted with the [=DomZ=] serpent RecurringBoss. Even if you beat all of them without ever taking a photograph, you can find the skeletal remains of one in a cave that you can photograph instead. Likewise, the Pterolimax doesn't die after being defeated, and it is possible to go back into the mine and photograph it bouncing around at any later point. The [=DomZ=] sarcophagus is a different matter; don't get a picture while fighting them in the Slaughterhouse? Well, you'll have to wait till the final battle to get one, and by then you'll have more pressing concerns.

** One animal that does count as permanently missable is the SpaceWhale that's found on route to the final area of the game. Its in a block of ice and you need to shoot at it to free it. Since its a one way trip, you won't get the chance to photograph it again.

Added DiffLines:

* UsedFuture: Hillys isn't exactly opulent or shiny. The general aesthetic wouldn't look out of place from ''Franchise/StarWars'', especially the original trilogy.


* HotScoop: Jade is a former page image, though she isn't really sexualized in game.
