Added DiffLines:

* ExtremeSportExcusePlot: The military is running top-secret experiments at a ski resort. Who saves the day? Rebellious snowboarders!

Added DiffLines:

* Acrofatic: Chief O'Leary may be an absolute unrepentant FatBastard, but don't think this means he's not qualified for the job. Best exemplified in one of the later missions where you have to race him to base camp. Even with you grinding rails, jumping chasms and shredding as hard as you can because your life literally depends on it, he's never any farther than just off-screen and he WILL overtake you and leave you in the dust if you make too many mistakes. If multiplayer is anything to go by, he's also pretty skilled at snowboarding when the situation strikes.


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoAboveItAll: In the head-to-head versus mode, in addition to the five operatives, you can also play as Hans, Rachel, O'Leary, Dick and even some Slow Patrol mooks...all riding snowboards just as easily as anyone else.


That's the plot of this rather obscure 2001-2002 [=PS2=]/Gamecube/Xbox game by Creator/RadicalEntertainment, which combines snowboarding with adventure. You're not just snowboarding for the sake of it, you're trying to stop The Man!

* FatBastard: Chief O' Leary. In fact one of the early missions involves wrecking his lunch, which consisted mainly of a whole chicken roughly half the size of Naya.

* TheMole: Your missions are given by someone working at the ski resort.

Added DiffLines:

* MadeOfIron: Well, since this is an arcade sports game and that there are no health bars of sorts, this applies to all key characters. Your playable snowboarder can easily get back up in a matter of seconds after failing a jump dozens of feet high, or when failing a grind in the middle of a rail. The game also has bombs scattered in some places but they would only slow your snowboarder down.

Added DiffLines:

* AdvancingWallOfDoom: After firing the Big Gun in one challenge, a follow-up task has you running away from an avalanche. But as the game does not have a rear camera, it is technically impossible to determine the distance between you and the avalanche. Bumping too much hard obstacles and falling into gaps several times will get you caught inside it.

Added DiffLines:

* EquipmentUpgrade: Like the AndYourRewardIsClothes entry, earning experience points allows you to automatically unlock new snowboards which can be equipped by Naya. For each new one that you unlock, her speed will increase and her "air time" will be longer. The final snowboard named "Prototype MG" gives the best stats and can be unlocked by having 2 million experience points.
* DrillSergeantNasty: Drill Sergeant Dick, who you encounter in the mission where you have to feed the bear.

Added DiffLines:

* AliensStealCattle: The premise of the "Apocalypse Cow!" mission which starts every time you exit the Moon Gate's alien half-pipe. You are tasked to destroy 10 cows which are larger than usual. Smashing one reveals that said "cows" have been turned into machines but nonetheless retains their "moo" sounds.

Added DiffLines:

* BonusStage: The Moon Gate Chairlift which is accessible from the menu after you reach it from the Helipad. It starts off with a ride down the alien half-pipe, where there is less snow and your board continuously accelerates and leaves a sparking trail behind. Every time you exit the alien half-pipe, you will always be prompted to start the "Apocalypse Cow!" mission even though you have completed it before. It is indeed a bonus chairlift separate from the rest of the game as [[spoiler:the last bomb is located in the Helipad Chairlift.]]


* MyGrandmaCanDoBetterThanYou: There's a variation of this that plays when a snow patrol mocks you during one of the final missions.
