* As the section image shows, the first hint that Columbia isn't the pure, idyllic MarySuetopia it's made out to be is the raffle. The numbers are written on baseballs, and ([[ContrivedCoincidence naturally]]) your number gets drawn. So what's your prize? Getting to throw the first "pitch" at an interracial couple who's been trotted on stage with the intention of publicly stoning them to death. After emcee Jeremiah Fink taunts you over your hesitance to, you know, ''[[CompleteMonster instigate the brutal public execution of an interracial couple for the]] [[BlatantLies hellworthy tresspass]] [[CompleteMonster of being an interracial couple]]'', you're given a choice: [[KickTheDog cast the proverbial/literal first stone]], or [[KickTheSonOfABitch knock that stupid mustache off Fink's face with the ball]]. [[spoiler:The part immediately below happens, so you don't actually get to throw anything]]. What makes it awesome on a meta scale is that ''no one'' who worked on the game and got to this scene chose to target the interracial couple. And the number of LetsPlay|ers who have are similarly nonexistent.

* One for the entire fandom's reaction to the ending of Part 2. Most said that they just sat there, staring in shock or crying, then opened Bioshock 1 and proceeded to go through the entire game, reach the final level, and ''[[spoiler: fight Fontaine with a wrench.]]'' Karma's a bitch, indeed.

** Made even better when you realize Sally was one of the Little Sisters who [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice stabbed Fontaine to death with her needle]] as revenge for [[ItsPersonal ELizabeth's death.]] LaserGuidedKarma, at its finest.

* ''Mind in Revolt'' finally gives us insight into the character of Daisy Fitzroy, and ''holy shit is she a BadAss''. [[spoiler:Basically, she gets stuck in a psychological interview designed to "show" how inferior she is to white males... ''and she breaks the scale the psychologist was using, and ends up sending him into an existential crisis through charisma alone.'']]

* The final events of Comstock house: once Booker's shut down the generators that were keeping Elizabeth's powers nullified, she proceeds to perform one of the most spectacular displays of power yet: opening a tear leading directly into a tornado, killing the sick bastards who [[spoiler: were about to operate on her.]] Then, once she's patched up, she opens the same Tear again to give herself a dramatic backdrop while [[spoiler:discussing whether or not she should kill Comstock.]] The {{Badass}} threat to Booker--and Booker's flat response--really sells it.

* The plasmids are back and they're now known as vigors. These vigors vary between a possession power that allows you to possess enemies, a horse themed stun vigor named Bucking Bronco and Devils Kiss which is an explosive fire vigor.
