** One radio announcement heard early in the game describes your combat in the introduction. It states the death toll at 8 people. By that point, you will have gunned down about 50 Columbian police and soldiers, and in the scene described alone, the death toll was over 20. This was probably because of the sheer impact that many police deaths would have made in real life. It may have also represented an earlier design of the game that relied less on gunplay.

** When you board Comstock's zeppelin during the endgame, Comstock gets on the loudspeaker and counsels Elizabeth to "Look at DeWitt, child. There's something about him that you just can't put your finger on." This is arguably BlackComedy, given that Elizabeth is missing the tip of her pinkie... but after you find out ''why'' it's gone ([[spoiler:Snipped off by a PortalCut when she, Anna DeWitt, was taken away from her father Booker by Comstock]]), it takes on another dimension entirely.

** Creator/BenjaminFranklin was a radical supporter of Egalitarianism: that all humans are equal in fundamental worth or social status. In Columbia social status is rigidly, and sometimes brutally, enforced. (The zealously monogamous Columbians also stand in sharp contrast with old Ben's [[ReallyGetsAround success with the ladies]].)

Worshiping him is even stranger than for Jefferson, since Franklin was an open proponent of {{UsefulNotes/Deism}}.

** If you have the Season Pass, Columbia's Finest, completed Industrial Revolution, purchased the Premium or Ultimate Songbird Edition, the game outright tells you that you must collect all your gear, infusion, and other rewards before proceeding. This means that you cannot skip them to play the game at the normal difficulty, and is rather odd, considering previous games in the series made getting DLC rewards optional.

** UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln despised the American Civil War and was overjoyed when it ended. The Vox Populi treats him as a role model for ''glorifying'' violence and conflict. The Founders, on the other hand, have vilified him for his role in the Civil War. This belief would lead to the formation of the Fraternal Order of the Raven, a cult that depicts Lincoln as a devil and venerates his assassin John Wilkes Booth as a martyr. In the original game, Abraham was still venerated by Columbia...while completely ignoring his attempt to give equal rights to blacks and attempts at peace.

* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: The slap stings a little more than in the original [=BioShock=] (the player loses a little money and enemies gain back some health, while in "1999 Mode" death costs you $100 every time), but dying is still nothing more than a minor inconvenience.

* ExpendableAlternateUniverse: Averted, as Booker and Elizabeth abandon multiple {{Alternate Universe}}s for ones that better suit their needs at the moment, with little concern about the "old" realities that still exist, including their own home reality. [[spoiler: Though as it turns out, technically the reality at the beginning of the game wasn't their home reality anyway]].

* CrapsaccharineWorld: Columbia. Beautiful sky-high city... under ultra-nationalist, imperialist rule with angry robots, gun-toting xenophobes and bloodthirsty anarchists trying to kill you. It's possibly ''worse'' than Rapture, considering that everyone who tried to kill you in Rapture at least had the excuse of being completely insane, and the enemies in Columbia are either punch clock mooks, or bloodthirsty terrorists.

* BlamingTheRailroadedPlayerCharacter:
** During the game, your character will betray Elizabeth by trying to take her to New York rather than Paris. She starts crying and ends up hitting you and knocking you out, then flees from you repeatedly. When you finally catch up to her she says she doesn't trust you and only reluctantly agrees to join you again. This is all despite the fact that you had no choice in what happened - it occurred in a CutScene.
** ''Episode 1'' ends with the player being blamed for the events that took place in a flashback ([[spoiler:accidentally killing an alternate Elizabeth]]), and which weren't even entirely the character's fault ([[spoiler:as it wouldn't have happened if the Elizabeth in this game hadn't distracted you]]).
