Added DiffLines:

** You can get fleas even when playing as the crocodile or the two dinosaurs. In real life, reptiles can't get fleas.

Added DiffLines:

* HumansAreBastards: What kicks off the plot of the game. [[spoiler: In 2215, humans have made Earth all but uninhabitable and the global population has gone down to 10000. The only way to get out of this mess they've themselves made is to transport the entire human population back a thousand years - a move which requires transporting the entire population of ''that'' year to the doomed future in exchange.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyGameHell: Since your only opponents at the start of a new game are small and fast, large carnivores can struggle with finding enough prey to level up, but the process gets easier once bigger and stronger animals start spawning. [[InvertedTrope Conversely]], small carnivores can easily rank up even with weaker prey, but they can have trouble finding prey that they can actually kill after enough years have passed.


* BeefGate: Provided you manage to survive toxicity, hunger, and other animals, Homo Erectus show up to ruin your day. Though if you're good enough, you're still able to play your way around them them and continue surviving.

* BeefGate: Provided you manage to survive toxicity, hunger, and other animals, Homo Erectus show up to ruin your day. Though if you're good enough, you're still able to play your way around them them and continue surviving. That makes this trope a form of [[BattleRoyaleGames]] since Homo Erectus is a species of [[OriginalMan human being]].

Added DiffLines:

* LevelGrinding: While not strictly necessary to enjoy the game, grinding up animals' stats makes it easier to survive in survival mode. This game has a unconventional way of doing this. You complete challenges to up your animal's stats, and when you mate a portion of these upgraded stats are passed on to your offspring and permanently added to the species, and the rest is discarded. The exact percentage passed on depends on the quality of your mate, with Prime mates giving the most, Desperate mates giving the least, and Average mates in the middle.


** The hyenas are also led by males and always referred to as male, which is odd because in-real life female hyenas are larger and more aggressive than males, and dominate them to the point female ''cubs'' outrank the highest ranking males. Hyenas are infamous for all this, making this a very bad CriticalResearchFailure.
** The cheetah, while one of the fastest animals in game, still can't compare to its real-life counterpart. You can actually have trouble catching up to some of the herbivores in the game. It's speed is mainly represented stylistically in gameplay by having a very, very high stamina stat, which you can use to spam the dodge command to get across areas faster.
** The panther is basically just a cheetah reskin with some stat differences. It's portrayed as just as fast as the cheetah with a comparative amount of stamina. Obviously, real panthers (which are black jaguars or leopards) are not as fast as a cheetah.

Added DiffLines:

* SexyDiscretionShot: Mating is a important part of gameplay, and for some reason the game feels the need to show your animal sniffing the female's rear and mounting her, but [[{{Squick}} (fortunately)]] it doesn't show any private parts and fades to black before the actual act.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverSmileAtACrocodile: Crocodiles are very dangerously strong and durable. They mainly stay near water such as in the sewer, but one is programed to spawn hidden around the corner in Shibuya Woods early on, and it tends to kill a lot of novice players.


* CatsAreMean: Everything from ordinary housecats to ''Smilodons'' are present in the game and all can be your enemies. In the story mode one mission pits you against "Fat Cat" who is particularly testy.

Lions are especially nasty, as they come in large groups, the cubs summon more lions if they are not killed/ran away from quickly.
* CreatureBreedingMechanic: An important part of the game is breeding. Some challenges (including unlocking more animals) require you change generations a certain number of times, and your animal also loses stats when it reaches old age, so you must breed periodically. When you do mate, you pass on some of your stats and take control of one of your offspring, and the litter mates serve as extra "lives" in the sense that if the one you are controlling dies, you switch over to one of the others while retaining your stats gained. The number of litter mates is determined by the quality of the female (or male for a few animals). Average and Prime females/males require you to be a certain rank to mate with them, whereas Desperate females/males will always accept you but will always give you fleas while your trying to make it to the nest to actually mate (fleas cause your animal to periodically stop and scratch, even when in a battle) and a small litter.


* WidgetSeries: A game about a large random assortment of various animals trying to survive and gain dominance. Unique, but not so weird, right? You start out with a [[KillerRabbit vicious little Pomeranian]] as your first predator, the assortment of animals include dinosaurs, survival mode ends with a [[spoiler: ZergRush of cavemen]] if you survive long enough, and the tone appears very gritty, serious and dark at first but shows itself to have humorous elements (one story mission has a boss fight with cats wearing construction helmets, for example).

There's also a DLC JokeCharater which is a normal human (presumably the last one alive.)


** Wolves and hyenas will frequently bark and howL. Real wolves ''do'' bark, but only rarely and it's a warning call instead of aggressive like it's portrayed in the game. Hyenas do not bark or howl at all, and they're not even canines (they belong to their own group, which is slightly more related to cat family compared to the dog family.) These are both common mistakes.
