* {{Anvilicious}}: DependingOnTheWriter, the acceptance of LGBT can be rather jarring in terms of how well it fits with the narrative. ''Slammed!'' averted it (perhaps even a bit of GeniusBonus kicks in if you know that pro-wrestling actually has been more accepting of LGBT wrestlers, just subtle about it), while other games can be a bit more overt about it. Psy High 2 in particular gets really ridiculous when practically every couple shown and every parent couple mentioned is gay.


%%* {{Adorkable}}: The player character certainly acts this way in some scenes. For example, some of their evil plans seems more like harmless pranks than anything else and at one point after hearing their name mentioned on the news, they bounce up and down on the coach in excitement.

Added DiffLines:

* TheScrappy: A lot of people find Figs from ''Tally Ho'' to be a pest. And to some extent, Mopsie as well.


* MagnificentBastard: Several games allow you to become one. Most notably "Champion of the Gods". by the end of it, [[spoiler: You can manipulate the Gods AND the BigBad into helping you kill [[TopGod The Weavers]] and [[ScrewDestiny freeing you from the control of fate]], only to turn on the BigBad and kill him. Blaming him for the death of the Weavers and thus still maintaining the trust of the Gods with no-one ever the wiser.]]
** ''Choice of The Vampire'' and ''Choice of Romance'' are all about this. In ''Vampire'', you can humiliate a rival [[spoiler:by exposing his dislike to a woman head-over-heels for him. Then, at a party when he recites a poem about a foolish woman who pursues a man who feels nothing for her, she follows up by reciting ''her'' poem, about a vain, foppish peacock-a symbol of your rival-who believes himself God's gift to women, until he's killed and his feathers are used to adorn women's hats. All because you made one comment.]]


** ''Diabolical'': [[BigBad Ara-Kunos the Eighth]], the emperor of the planet Yod, at some point came to Earth under the alias [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Dr. Arachnus]] and made a name for himself as the world's most infamous villain. Prior to the game, he attempted to steal all of Earth's water supply. When stopped by renowned hero The Star, Arachnus [[MindRape mentally tortured the hero]] into becoming a borderline insane shell of his former self. Later, he murdered president Alex Johnson by drinking all of his blood, before acquiring the president's clairvoyant powers. Receiving visions that a threat to him was somewhere on Earth, Arachnus went into seclusion while having mechanical spiders kill anybody they come across. When he finds out that you're the said threat, Arachnus infects thousands of people in Merit City with a eventually-fatal nano-virus that turns them into zombie-like drones, all with the goal of killing you. Eventually, he reveals his true identity, and declares that he intends to terraform the entire planet, killing the majority of humans and enslaving any survivors. When you enter his ship, it's revealed that Arachnus shows no sympathy for his people, brainwashing them into mindless soldiers who will die for him without a second thought. When confronted, Arachnus offers you the opportunity to join him, only to mock him for thinking he was being genuine about his offer; if Hackmaster was chosen for your sidekick, she'll attempt to take up Arachnus's offer, [[ForTheEvulz only for him to kill her for no reason]]. In a game that acts primarily as a parody of heroes and villains, Dr. Arachnus is played deadly serious, and out of all the super villains in the world, proves to be by far the most heinous one the player confronts.

** ''Choice of Zombies'': Anita is a minor villain encountered in the story, yet makes the most of her time to be a truly monstrous individual. [[BitchInSheepsClothing Seemingly the kind leader]] of a group of survivors of the zombie apocalypse who have taken up residency at a church, Anita is actually [[TheFundamentalist a religious fanatic]] who believes zombies to be the next step in human evolution, and, as such, uses her friendly exterior to lower innocents' guards before feeding them to a group of zombies she keeps chained up, releasing any people who reanimate back into the world in the hopes to turn evermore people into the "MasterRace". Depending on your choices, Anita can try to feed a [[WouldHurtAChild child]] to her zombies, and even succeed, all while claiming it is the "will of God".

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Breden from ''Choice of Rebels''. This is particularly due to their romance being partially [[{{Railroading}} forced upon the player]], and how the player has to practically beat them off with a stick to reject them. There's also [[spoiler: the possibility that they're TheMole]].



* ShipToShipCombat: ''Choice of Rebels: Uprising'' has probably the biggest shipping war, with PC-Breden and PC-Simon/Suzane (depending on gender). It's a bit one-way; both are popular romances, but Breden's a minor BaseBreakingCharacter and those players who aren't interested in them tend to find their forced romantic attraction to be obnoxious.

Added DiffLines:

* BlackAndWhiteMorality: In "Choice Of Robots", members of the military are considered "evil" because they kill people. Anyone supporting, helping or otherwise not being completely against the military is just as evil as they are, including the player character if they decide to create military robots.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Mobile Armored Marine'': [[BigBad Governor Plaxus]] is the smug, {{greed}}y leader of the colonist planet, Far Hope. When contacted by the Lacertians, a race of lizard-like aliens, Plaxus immediately began trading them anything they requested in exchange for their immense riches, and, when the Lacertians began asking for humans so that they could "research" them, Plaxus was more than happy to oblige. When you investigate Far Hope, discovering the houses ransacked, the crops burned, and the thousands of citizens missing, you discover the truth that Plaxus has betrayed his people to the Lacertians, who plan to devour them all, in exchange for [[ImmortalityImmorality granting Plaxus their regenerative abilities]]. When you confront him, Plaxus happily explains that only himself and the "chosen few" followers will survive the Lacertians' occupation, and eagerly tries to murder you when you express your disgust with him.
