- Grammar Nazi: One of the recruits.
- New Game+: Earning medals gives EXP (starting at 200), which can be used to buy boosts to increase profits, but returning to starter recruits.
- Nice Hat: Buying hats increases money gain by a bit, and you can get your avatar to wear it.
- No Plot? No Problem!: No plot at all, just collecting money.
- Not-Actually-Cosmetic Award: Earning medals raises money gain slightly.
