** [[spoiler: He will attack you [[DirtyCoward when you're distracted grabbing the key to Emily's room]]. This leads to an expectantly brief sword fight, possibly ending with you stabbing him in the elbow, and bending his arm around so he [[BoomHeadshot shoots himself in the face]]. His face at that [[OhCrap exact moment]] is just glorious.]]

*** 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.

It's not just the title, it's screen, also naming what happens to you in that moment, and the effect gives moment. It's highly effective at giving you chills.

** [[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 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.

* 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.

*** 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."

* Getting the Ghost[=/=]Shadow[=/=]Clean Hands achievements, especially all at once. You, as Corvo or Daud, have just walked into enemy strongholds several times over, avoiding guards, dodging death traps, and eliminating targets who are highly protected and occasionally secure in their own arrogance. Nobody on the other side ever realized you were there, all of them save the person they were guarding are still accounted for, and your wanted poster remains a silhouette with a question mark on it.

** [[spoiler: Lady Boyle has just as many. Shank her before she gets down the stairs, rewire the Wall of Light in her own house and make her walk into it, tell her to her face that there's an assassin after her and slit her throat when she believes you, set off the alarm, watch her and her sisters lock themselves in a bedroom, break in there, and unleash a swarm of rats, completing the ''[[Creator/EdgarAllanPoe Masque of the Red Death]]'' reference.]]

* The AntiClimax of the [[spoiler:Low Chaos FinalBoss. You've infiltrated the most heavily guarded areas to assassinate the richest, strongest people in all of Dunwall. 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.
