  • Crowning Music of Awesome
  • Demonic Spiders:
    • The AI opponents that focus on dominating you via the stock market. They can be nigh impossible to dislodge in Tycoon 2, to the point that if you see somebody like George Hudson or Jim Fisk in the game, it is usually a good idea to make use of your railway's early income (or even take on debt) just to buy back public stock until you control a bare majority stake in your own company. This then leaves you free to pump yourself up with dividends, buy up stock in their company, and hopefully put them out of commission.
      • It's still hard to actually eliminate an AI opponent; even if you take over their company, the payout from their stock can leave them with plenty of resources.
    • More track-system focused AI players can turn out to be this, if their rail empire grows to block yours in a significant way.
  • That One Level: Any level that involves personal wealth.
  • Values Dissonance: The East Africa map ("Rhodes Unfinished" scenario). It's a fun map, and it feels awesome to be connecting all these African countries, but then you realize this is the late 19th century, and you are a European empire connecting African colonies. Puts an interesting twist on the usual ambiance of tycoon games.
