He knows what you're capable of and there is absolutely 0 possibility of making it in a fight with you. Confront him directly, and he won't even resist, because he knows he doesn't stand a chance.]]

* Pulling off a non-fatal 'neutralization' is just as satisfying, if not more so, than slaughtering your targets. It's one thing to kill a person, it's another thing to murder them gruesomely, and it's still not as good as making their lives a living hell for the rest of their miserable existence.

It gets to the point where, by playing a no-kill run, even The Outsider is impressed with what you've done, calling you 'fascinating.'



** Sparing Daud renders The Outsider [[StunnedSilence absolutely speechless]]. It's especially delicious if you've gotten sick of his long, dreary speeches on how HumansAreBastards throughout the game.
*** There's also two ways to spare him, both of which are awesome. [[spoiler:The first is beating him in a sword fight, then [[SheatheYourSword lowering your weapon]] and walking away. The other way is to steal his pouch of coins and leave him unhurt. That just lets Daud know you were right there, with the option to kill him, having snuck up on a master assassin with the same powers as you... and ''you let him go''.]]

** Not only that, but if the remaining sisters are not killed ,they will actually ''thank'' Corvo for sparing their lives and will give him a gift after reading the guestlist.

* One throughout the entire game that occured to this troper while reading through this page. Corvo does all the badass stuff he does in the game after six months of being tortured and malnourished in prison, and even after he breaks out, he does multiple missions in a day, never having much chance to rest. It's just his [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge sheer rage]] at the Conspirators that keeps him going.
** This may explain why he immediately scarves down any food he finds in a mission (unlike his spiritual predecessor Garrett, who kept food in his inventory until he needed it)-he's so damn hungry that he just chows down as he considers his options for murdering his foes (or as he contemplates just how beautifully he pulled off that last mission).

** You can take the High Overseer and [[spoiler:brand him with the mark of a heretic, ensuring that he will wander the city forever, disgraced and shunned, to the point where it's against the law to help him at all. Plus, when you're in the Drowned District, you'll find him as a weeper, with a note cursing Corvo with his last words.]]

** [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/dishonoredvideogame/images/5/50/Tallboys3-1-.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20120320065248 This]] is what a tallboy looks like. A [[http://dishonored.wikia.com/wiki/The_Exquisite_Tallboy document]] in-game reports they "rain down fire on the sick and the poor" and "are heavily drugged, [which] dulls whatever empathy they might normally possess". So a guard strapped to a very tall metal contraption is walking around shooting at any living signs of the plague (or Corvo) with painful [[ArrowsOnFire incendiary bolts]] that can burn them to death. Since it is very difficult to kill this tall mook from below, the only option is fall down from above. So Corvo has to Blink up to a tall ledge, give a flying leap, land on the back of the tallboy, unsheathe his sword, and ''stab that annoyance from above into his fleshy neck''. If done successfully, the whole contraption will fall down to the ground with a thump as Corvo does a backflip off the dead guard's back and land safely on his feet like the BadAss [[ProfessionalKiller Assassin]] he can be.

** If you do that, when entering The Lord Regent's chamber, you can find a letter about Lady Boyle's death/disappearance. The Watch noticed the guest book signature, but are completely at a loss as to how it got there, assuming it's a fake from a noble with a bad sense of humor.

** Even better, you can sneak past them all, without being seen or drawing a drop of blood. Daud will even praise you for it. The nonfatal method of neutralizing Daud consists of merely stealing the few coins he has in his pockets, with an implied VillainousBreakdown when he discovers how easily Corvo could have killed him.

* [[spoiler: Sabotaging Delilah's ritual, instead of performing a GrandTheftMe on Emily, she gets sucked into her own painting. A Void within the Void. She begs for the Outsider's help as she's being sucked in, and curses Daud's name as she loses her grip. You get the feeling that Daud, the player, and the Outsider are all laughing at her as this happens.]]

** Even better, if one thinks of [[spoiler: Emily]] as the Empress, this means that Daud is a better [[spoiler: ''Royal Protector than Corvo'']].
