** In the Neon City biome, one large dungeon has you enter through a coin slot in the side of an arcade and fend off monsters in stages lifted straight off Pac-Man, Q-bert and Donkey Kong.

** In the Neon City biome, one large dungeon has you enter through a coin slot in the side of an arcade and fend off monsters in stages lifted straight off Pac-Man, Q-bert and Donkey Kong. There's also a dungeon marked by a giant [[Film/{{TRON}} Identity Disc.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AntiClimax: The Luxion is Missing event has you searching for the dragon merchant after he fails to make his rounds in the hub on the usual schedule. Though it's assumed he was kidnapped or worse, what ''actually'' happened was that he'd recently become a father and traveled to Geode, where Gabbro would be able to monitor the kids with his expertise.


* AngelicAliens: The Geodians are varying humanoid alien races, all of which bear a light-based theme.



* BuiltWithLego: The whole game.

to:

* BenevolentAI: Despite being a dragon, Rhom-10 runs on a self-programmed AI code which he rewrote after Yoshimi's heroic will inspired a change of heart in him, eventually becoming an administrator of the Resistors.
* BenevolentMonsters: The dragons are more than enough indication that the Trovians have friends in high places, up to and including Valkizer, their king. The Resistors are also primarily led by Crisopeia, the original Kami.
** There's also the Kamis, representatives of species assimilated by the Neon City which now act as administrators to the Resistors.
* BuiltWithLego: The whole game. Ludini takes this UpToEleven as they're a ShoutOut to actual Franchise/{{LEGO}}, and is made entirely out of similar bricks.


Added DiffLines:

* DarkIsNotEvil: The characters related to the Despoiled Divinity material are themed after shadows and the moon like other Shadow Tower loot, but every individual [[HunterOfHisOwnKind is a proud hunter of the Shadows]], and Ohlukoi in particular blesses whoever she passes by at night, whether they are resting, working, or out in the fray.
* TheDeterminator: The dragons are frequently described in such terms. In particular, this is what caused Crisopeia to remain allied with the Trovians and join the Resistors, and also what convinces Rhom-10 to leave the rulers of the Neon City.


Added DiffLines:

* EmptyShell: It's been stated that Carys is ''nothing'' in the current state of the world, having been a patron saint of sorts to a realm that's gone completely silent and mostly desolate. Luckily, simply exploring the more tranquil environments will help you help her see better days.
* EvilKnockoff: The Gigastormers, robotic versions of the Shadow Tower bosses that serve [=C455-ANDRA=].


Added DiffLines:

* FlyingFlightlessBird: The Birds of Paradise can't fly, as they resemble fantastic versions of RealLife flightless birds. The only exception to this is Ganda, whose carpet of yellow blocks makes him the only source of infinite airtime in the game.


Added DiffLines:

* GeniusLoci: Hoshizora was born from the collective heroic wills of the more esoteric Resistors and essentially acts as this to the group, while fighting alongside Crisiopeia.


Added DiffLines:

* HeroicLineage: Galenor and his daughter Wyntegra, both of which are Winter Dragons. Of note is that Wyntegra is the only playable named descendant, as Luxion (likely a descendant of Luxaron, the current named Golden Hoard dragon) is a sort of IntrepidMerchant.


Added DiffLines:

* IntrepidMerchant: Once every month, Luxion will arrive in the hub selling exotic goods from all over the realms. Sometimes it's draconic, sometimes it's stuff from the Shadow Tower, sometimes it's Chaotic loot, but they're all fetched from the most dangerous and far-out of places. Though one would wonder why one of Trove's dragons would have any business in those parts of the world, collecting riches and unique items is in his blood - he's not part of the Golden Hoard for nothing.
* LaResistance: Following the Neon City revamp, a group known as the Resistors can be found in the biome, looking to defeat the area's current rulers. Known members include Yoshimi, a human Vanguardian; Hoshizora, a GeniusLoci; Crisopeia, a mechanized dragon that stayed heroic through sheer force of will; and Rhom-10, a loyal servant of [=C455-ANDRA=] until Yoshimi inspired a change of heart in him.


Added DiffLines:

* SuperSpit: The Shadow Hydrakken and Thallasion will both attempt to drench the player in acidic spit during their fight.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Of all the Legendary and Ancestral dragons, Thallasion, Flakbeard, and Dracocolatl are the only ones with any explicit malevolence, as they are initially found hostile to the Trovians. They're still among many of the Trovians' many more eccentric allies, though.


Since it's launch, the game has received multiple updates, such as new classes, events, and biomes, as well as [[VirtualPaperDoll new weapon styles, class-specific costumes, and mounts.]]

** The Shadow Hydrakken's [[{{Super Spit}} spit attacks]] can all spawn Hydrasneks to fight with it.
** The Daughter of the Moon is a minor example; halfway through the fight, she'll throw down her gun, which continues shooting and is [[{{InvincibleMinorMinion}} invulnerable]]. In her final phase she can also throw Moon Disks, which serve more as environmental hazards than enemies.

Added DiffLines:

* LosingYourHead: The Revenant has no head.

Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: While not sounding important at first, most players agree that Jump is one the most important stats you can get in general. Due to how the terrain of the worlds can be set and the emphasis on verticality in both dungeon and cornerstone design, every class can feel useless without at least a few points into jumps.

Added DiffLines:

** Luxion of the Golden Hoard is a golden dragon that will sell you random items such as tomes and mounts on the 15th to the 18th.
