* ArbitraryHeadcountLimit: You can have five characters in your team, even though the X-Men roster that actually featured in the "Fall of the Mutants" storyline had seven (Wolverine, Colossus, Psylocke, Rogue, Dazzler, Havok, and Longshot).

All playable in this game [[/note]].


* LazyBackup: In a fashion, since the individual X-Men are attacked by groups of enemies depending on how many enemies are in the group. That is, if you fight a group of two dinosaurs and a caveman, the first three X-Men in your line-up will have to win a fight but the last two party members will just stand around doing nothing the whole fight. You can of course switch those members to the front when wounds start piling up on the front-line fighters to keep going longer, though.

* ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption: In the comics this game was based on the X-Men and Freedom Force [[EnemyMine called a truce]] because of the interdimensional catastrophe going on. In the game the X-Men have to hunt down and defeat the Freedom Force members to unlock further levels.

Added DiffLines:

* OneWingedAngel: The game goes straight past the Adversary's Indian shaman form he started with in the comics to his shadowy demonic form for his boss fight.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateUniverse: The hook of the game, of course. Also how the Watcher explains things if the player loses, dooming the planet, and wants to play again.

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: The healing items come in different characters. Some characters can use some colors and not other colors. The only way to find out is to run into the item, ruining it if they can't use it or don't need it, and take notes.

Added DiffLines:

* RestingRecovery: Pushing C sets up camp and the heroes get their energy back (but don't heal, except for [[HealingFactor Wolverine]]) as they rest. You can be ambushed by wandering enemies while doing this if you aren't careful though.

Added DiffLines:

* CoolButInefficient: The more effective an X-Man's attacks are the more energy they use. For instance Phoenix can kill most enemies from the other side of the screen just by using her primary attack one or two times, never mind having to aim. She depletes her energy bar faster than any other playable character, though.


Added DiffLines:

* ManaMeter: One of the games that has a second energy bar that's depleted by using their special powers, whether it's fighting enemies or clearing obstacles in the overworld.

Added DiffLines:

* InUniverseGameClock: The game operates on a day-night cycle, where at night you'll have a much smaller field of vision making it easier to bump into a trap or enemy without seeing it.

Added DiffLines:

* TimedMission: You have seven in-game days to find and defeat the Freedom Force member who arbitrarily unlocks the next level.

Added DiffLines:

* HealingFactor: The game incorporates Wolverine's healing power; he's the only playable character whose health goes up along with his stamina when the team camps.

Added DiffLines:

* YourSizeMayVary: The game's most common enemy are t-rexes the size of a tallish human.


* AWinnerIsYou: After defeating all the villains, temporally-displaced monsters and then the demonic guide behind it all in single combat, you get an extremely quick ending sequence and are given a minor grading by the Watcher on how well you did based on how many of your party members survived.
