- Fridge Brilliance: The Greater Good is described as an unattainable ideal, but making the ol' college try is good enough. Just like how the Emperor is an unattainable paragon of humanity and Imperial citizens are expected to at least make an honest effort to messure up to Him, even though it's ultimately impossible.
- Fridge Horror: Retroactively, Kais's Emergency Weapon sword becomes quite the tragic memento. At the time, it was probably just there to look Japanese. In modern lore, however, such an ornamental blade is almost certainly his squad's Bonding Knife, the edge that they used to forge their bond as Blood Brothers. Whether Kais looted it off his dead sergeant or was the blade's designated carrier, it's about all he has left of his squad after the crash of his Orca and subsequent trench warfare scenario. Kais fights for more than the Greater Good alone, he fights for the memory and sacrifice of his fallen friends.
- Ham and Cheese: BRIAN BLESSED plays a suitably pompous - though rather slight - Imperial Admiral.
- Nightmare Fuel: Everything after the level "No Rest For The Wicked" when everything starts going Chaosy, particularly during the levels inside the Convergence pit.
- More Popular Spinoff: The Novel, which is considered much better than the game itself.
