* ArtificialBrilliance: Used in the most annoying way possible as the AI turns out to pretty much be total coward. The second a fight stops going their way a CPU run, hide and grab at every single health power-up in the arena. The issue is only compounded by the AI's tendency to GangUpOnTheHuman leading to times injured monsters will run off and heal themselves while non-wounded monsters will swarm around you and kick the shit out of you.

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Cerebulon. [[spoiler: After defeating his first two mecha-based forms, you might think that battling his physical form would be easier.]] You would be wrong. He has blindingly fast melee attacks, so much so that most characters can't get an attack in once his combo starts. You will then be thrown across the map, missing a large portion of your health.

** To go into detail about Agamo, his special attack it to rip his head off and use it as a weapon. Most levels are typically littered with weapons a minute into a fight, so why use him? As mentioned earlier weapons restore energy, so odds are you'll ''always'' have a better weapon than what's lying around. In addition, this weapon can be made to explode on command, either when your opponent is dumb enough to pick it up after a throw or (with a bit of timing,) after it bounces off of them from a throw.
