* When you get into Dunwall Tower's main room, the first thing you see is the Lord Regent briefing two of his men using a video screen. Once they leave, you can use the video screen yourself and talk to Burrows. After much blustering on his part, you then get the option to [[DramaticUnmask take off your mask and show him who the mysterious killer really is.]] If you don't, the in-game text that Corvo supposedly says is, "You'll die never knowing who killed you." But if you do, Corvo basically says "Remember me?" [[YouExclamation Burrows's reaction]] is priceless. This also causes him to bunker down in his panic room at the top floor, but isn't that [[DifficultButAwesome the whole point?]]

* Samuel ([[NonActionGuy of all people]]) gets one in the High Chaos version of the final level. He calls you out on how much you've embraced your role as a sociopathic, bloodthirsty murderer.

You can, quite easily, ''follow'' the assassin-in-training across the room, without being seen by either of them, and leave without them being any the wiser.

** This may explain why he immediately scarfs 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).
* The first time you play the The Golden Cat chapter, chances are you get ambushed by Daud's assassins in the backstreet which appear out of thin air. Replaying it and taking all three out before they even know you arrived in the area feels very powerful since they are the first mooks that can pose a challenge.

A [[http://dishonored.wikia.com/wiki/The_Exquisite_Tallboy document]] in-game reports that 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 irritant from below, the only option is to [[DeathFromAbove attack from above]]. So Corvo has to [[FlashStep Blink]] up to a tall ledge, give a flying leap, land onto the tallboy, unsheathe his sword, and ''stab that annoyance from above into his thick, 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.

* It's possible to take out a master assassin and an entire building of his EliteMooks without being seen, using only a knife and a couple of your low-level powers.
** 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 off-screen VillainousBreakdown when he discovers how easily Corvo could have killed him.

*** It's already awesome before even approaching Daud. If Corvo arrives at Daud's room with Low Chaos, then Daud will be informed about Corvo's escape by one of his men. Daud isn't surprised and more or less praises your amazing abilities for having evaded all of his men before stating aloud that he fully expects to meet him soon. This man had the Outsiders blessings for way longer than Corvo, yet sees the man obviously as at least an equal.

* The ending of the prologue is one for the dev team. You're accused of murdering the empress (and kidnapping Emily and stashing her somewhere before coming ''back'' for some reason, in the span of five seconds). A guard slams the pommel of his sword into your head, and the word "Dishonored" fills your vision. It's not just the title, it's what happens to you in that moment, and the effect gives you chills.

*** Actually you can get a ''far'' more detailed account of her fate, if you meet the Outsider during the same level, he says he sees both of Lady Boyle's fates: In one, she dies, in the other, she's forever locked away, miserable, as her dresses turn to rag and her hair grey. "Either way, this is Lady Boyle's last party."
