* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: [=Darwin5=]'s presence is technically explained by him being one of the exiled Robinsons, but there's no justification whatsoever for him turning into a werewolf. There are hints that the game was [[ReTool Retooled]] from fantasy to science fiction midway through development (you fight centaurs and goblins, for example), but this is a very flagrant out-of-genre moment. He's also the only Robinson that you are forced to fight due to reasons behind either his or your own control (he transforms into a lychomorph against his will and attacks you in that form).

Developed by the French studio Silmarils, Robinson's Requiem puts the player in the shoes of [=Trepliev1=], an experienced Robinson on his last mission before retirement. A lot of thought and care went into the survival system, resulting in [[TheManyDeathsOfYou all sorts of nasty ways to die]], from massive blood loss to food poisoning to hacking off your own limbs, it was later followed up by a sequel called Deus.

* EnergyWeapon: There are very few of these, and they're all aimed at you. Most laser based attacks will either inflict possible fractures [broken limbs] on impact, or if you're hit at point blank, you'll likely take a hit straight to the head, resulting in a one-hit kill.

[=Trepliev1=] being a HeroicMime doesn't help matters.


** In "Arcade" mode, sometimes you will meet random nameless Robinsons that can occasionally drop a similar weapon called "Deus". It's basically the same as the laser rifle, but with missiles as a finite ammo source.

** Also keep in mind, under normal game rules, you can only survive one amputation. Usually amputating a second limb, no matter your condition will cause you to die from syncope. There are ways the system can be cheated, but it's generally not recommended. Losing a leg will prevent you from being able to run, but otherwise doesn't hinder movement. Losing an arm will only prevent you from using the bow as a weapon. All other weapons are considered one-handed.
* BlindIdiotTranslation: The English in the in-game text and the manual is sometimes really weird, and often just wrong.

* GuideDangIt: You might figure out how to survive for a few days without dying a horrible death. But there's no way you'll actually work out how to finish the game without either psychic prescience, looking at a guide, or multiple occurrences of playing through to nearly the end and having to restart from the beginning because you rendered the game Unwinnable.
** Example: [=Epicurus92=] will tell you about the female alien tribe [the 'Fridays'], climb up a hill... and appear to ''vanish into thin air''. Some people interpret this as a GameBreakingBug, but this is actually a big misconception. [=Epicurus92=] will reappear after killing the Kagoo and getting your 'reward' from the Fridays' leader. He'll then attack you out of jealousy, forcing you to kill him.

* LifeOrLimbDecision: As state above, amputation of limbs is a very real possibility. The only reason you'd ever need to amputate a limb is if it becomes gangrenous due to poisoning, a bad infection, or leaving a tourniquet on a limb for too many hours at once. At this point, amputation is '''mandatory''' for survival, or you will die in as few as 8 hours of the infection from poisoning. Amputation requires a tourniquet, anesthetics, your survival knife, and the needle-and-thread.
** If you attempt to amputation a second limb, you'll generally die of syncope no matter what condition you're in at that point. There are players who have found ways to bypass this, to the point they've actually amputated all four limbs and still survive and can even continue gameplay. Losing one or both legs prevents you from running, but you can still walk around even with both gone. Losing one or both arms prevents you from using the bow, but you can still use one-handed weapons even if you're missing both arms. Even more perplexing is the question of ''how you can amputate your remaining arm when it's the only limb you have left''.

** The Giant Robot is the fastest enemy to face, is immune to weapons and must be lured into a booby trap made attaching a wire to a battery. As an added bit of FakeDifficulty, putting them together will kill you unless you're wearing the Kevlar Gloves [dropped by [=Pavlov95=]].
*** It is possible however to sneak around the Giant Robot if you use the crouch/sneak mechanic, as shown [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSn1Nep_VM4 here]], making it the battery is actually NOT the only solution.
* QuicksandSucks: The desert has plenty of it, and it's probably one of the most fatal examples of this trope in video gaming. The moment you walk onto it, you freeze in place and sink into it [while [=Trepliev1=] sobs] like there's a ''black hole'' under it.

Once all twenty, including your own are inserted, a message shows up and a very-annoying klaxon sounds off every second, announcing the impending destruction of the base.

* TyrannosaurusRex: The Kagoo and the Baby Kagoos in the Tyrannosaur/Kagoo Cave that connects the Swamp, Desert and Massif. The baby kagoos are smaller and can be regarded as normal-level enemies which you can at least melee with a hope of survival. The larger Kagoo, who doesn't looks ''that much'' bigger than its children on the other hand? Yeah, do not let it bite you, for it's instant death. Worse? You can't fight it at all in its cave, and it happens to be hovering near one of the Sesame computers you need to win the game. You either need to be good at dodging the Kagoo in its cave, or kill it before going for the Sesame computer.

** [[spoiler: Unfortunately, the Robinsons have mostly been driven insane by their time on the planet, and most will turn hostile immediately or shortly after you meet them, so you can kill them in self-defense without any sticky moral ambiguity issues.

* AmputationStopsSpread: Some infections and poisonings of your limbs, if left unattended for too long, can become gangerous, requiring eventual amputation of the limb in question. If eight hours pass when a limb is considered gangerous, you'll die of 'poisoning by gangrene'. To amputate a limb, you must use a tourniquet to cut off the blood flow to the offending limb, apply Anaesthetic [=MW44=] to the affected limb, use the survival knife to amputate the limb, and then use the needle-and-thread to stitch the open wound left behind shut.
