* Geralt's showdown with a young dragon on the roof of a burning castle tower. In the lore, even being ''near'' an angry dragon is tantamount to ''suicide''. After a lengthy duel on the ground the Witcher latches onto the fire wyrm's neck with his steel sword and just manages to hold on throughout some aerial acrobatics, he then digs his trophy hook under Saesenthesis's [[EyeScream eyelid]] for leverage - and pulls her into an uncontrollable spiraling loop; crashing her chest first into a [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice jagged tree.]] Deciding to either spare Saskia, who is mind controlled, or putting her out of her misery is certainly going to play a big part in the Wild Hunt.

* Another meta moment came when [[PolishedPort the Enhanced Edition]] for the UsefulNotes/XBox360 came out. What did CDProjektRed do? Instead of charging those who previously bought the game on PC for the new content like ElectronicArts, {{Capcom}}, or Creator/{{Activision}}, they released every bit of new content (over 4 hours of new gameplay, as well as a soundtrack, interviews and concept art) ''all for free.'' If that doesn't win a consumer's respect for CDProjektRed, I don't know what will.

** Just before, as he and the Nilfgaardian ambassador are talking, a ballista bolt fly near them. The Nilfgaardian runs for cover while Foltest barely move, taking his time explaining the functionnment and advantages of the Countess' ballistes, before outlining their major flaw: Due to the heavy recoil, they ''can't'' hit twice at the same place.

** Similarly, the first time you insta-kill a ''golem'', a monster so tough that fighting it can turn into an unexpected boss battle.

* At the end of both paths, if Geralt chooses to save Triss from Nilfgaard's compound. He storms the place all on his own, planning to trade hostages by capturing the, until recently, unflappable Shilard Fitz-Oesterlen. Unfortunately, Renuald aep Matsen, the Emperor's military presence at the summit, decides to just shoot the ambassador instead, and when Geralt is left alone, faced down by the very elite of the Imperial army, he gives us [[PreAssKickingOneLiner this one, very, blood-chilling condemnation.]]

* A Meta moment: On Website/FourChan's /v/ board, someone asked for help cracking the game... [[http://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkain/2012/04/30/4chan-defends-witcher-2-developer-cd-projekt-red-from-pirates/ he was promptly told to]] "[[PrecisionFStrike Fuck off and buy the damn game]]" ''multiple'' times, rewarding CDProjektRed's faith that if they treat their customers with respect, they would get respect back.
