* {{Badass}}: Not a Big Daddy to be trifled with. He can kill a Big Sister one on one.

Though the Crawler is a Spider Splicer by default, he tends to offset the stealth aspect of the character by being the noisiest of all enemies in [=BioShock=] 2, with the possible exception of the Big Sister. More disfigured than any other splicer in Rapture and even more deranged, the Crawler is very vocal about his problems, screaming and wailing with every move, sometimes even accusing the player of being a figment of his imagination.

An elderly security guard, Ducky differs from most of the other Splicers in that, rather than being delusional or lost in his own private fantasy, he's just aggressive and paranoid -- not to mention insanely nationalistic.

By ''2'', his personality and identity have merged with the Wader, replacing the latter and leaving him a raving zealot hunting down the Lamb to be "sacrificed".



* BurnTheWitch: As religious in 2 as Wader. He thinks Delta is TheAntichrist, and that Big Sisters, especially Eleanor, are actual witches.

* TragicMonster: As other tropes here indicate, you really can and likely do feel sorry for the Splicers, who were once just ordinary people before the "revolutionary" wonder-drug of choice in Rapture drove them insane and left them as deformed mutants. Add in that many would have become Splicers by accident by overdosing on Plasmids and Tonics to ''fight'' Splicers, and it just gets worse.



** he also expresses his desire for a "best mate" but he thinks everyone will see him as being openly gay, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial which he isn't ,of course.]]

* BaldOfEvil

to:

* BaldOfEvilBaldOfEvil: He's completely hairless on top of his head.



* HatesBeingTouched: Apparently a side-effect of his homophobia. He says he could have been a wrestler, but he prefers boxing since wrestling involves two sweaty, muscluar men touching each other too much for his liking.

* JerkAss

to:

* JerkAssJerkAss: Even by Splicer standards he's abrasive, coarse and pugnacious.



* LargeHam

to:

* LargeHamLargeHam: Splicers aren't exactly subtle or rational by any standard, but Brutes are particularly over the top in screaming and ranting at the top of their longs.



* TheMeanBrit

to:

* TheMeanBritTheMeanBrit: They have British accents and wear somewhat "British" clothing (albeit in scraps because of their overbuilt frames), and they're some of the nastiest Splicers you'll fight, in terms of both personality and threat level.



* ScreamingWarrior

to:

* ScreamingWarriorPoliticallyIncorrectVillain: They are outrageously vocal homophobes. Which is kind of odd, as ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite: Burial At Sea: Episode One'' establishes that Rapture was surprisingly homophobia-free for its time period before the civil war.
* ScreamingWarrior: Like all Splicers, they howl and bellow when fighting.



* AndIMustScream

to:

* AndIMustScreamAndIMustScream: All Splicers are in their own private hell, but the Crawler is the most vocal about how much his extremely deformed body and shattered mind ''hurt''.



* NervousWreck
* NoodlePeople

to:

* NervousWreck
NervousWreck: Paranoia and delusions have utterly shattered any sense of sanity the Crawler has, leaving him constantly screaming, wailing and gibbering about how much he's suffering.
* NoodlePeopleNoodlePeople: Used for horror; the fact of the matter that humans ''shouldn't be that thin'' is evidence of just how deformed they are.



* WallCrawl

to:

* WallCrawl
WallCrawl: His most defining trait is his ability to scale walls and ceilings.

* BadAssGrandpa

to:

* BadAssGrandpaBadAssGrandpa: He may be old, but he's still capable of kicking ass, even posing a challenge to an Alpha Series Big Daddy. Helps that he's full of the local SuperSerum of choice, though.



* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain

to:

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillainPoliticallyIncorrectVillain: His rants and rambles often include "conservative religious" type slurs, such as his denigrations of mixed-race couples/individuals and non-Protestant Christians.



A surgeon in the mould of Dr. Steinman (they share the same basic model), dialogue reveals that he's not exactly the most professional in the business- freely admitting to making up answers to questions posed by concerned patients, and forgetting what his various medical supplies actually do. And worse still, he's a germophobe.

* BloodLust

to:

* BloodLustBloodLust: He shows every sign of enjoying killing, more so than most other Splicers even when they kill you.



* DeadlyDoctor

to:

* DeadlyDoctorDeadlyDoctor: It's implied he wasn't much of a "healer" before the Civil War, but with splicing having driven him insane, he actively employs his talents to butcher anyone who catches his attention.



* MadDoctor: In the sense that he's both insane, and perpetually angry at everything.
* TheMeanBrit

to:

* MadDoctor: In the sense that he's both insane, and insane ''and'' perpetually angry at everything.
* TheMeanBritTheMeanBrit: Like the Brute, he has both a British accent and a ''seriously'' JerkAss personality.

A teenaged splicer and member of one of Rapture's football teams, Pigskin is more lucid than most of the Splicers- apart from his slightly desperate belief that his parents and/or Mr. Ryan are somewhere in the area. Nevertheless, he still suffers considerable pain, both from the deformities induced by ADAM overdosing, and from his fellow Splicers.

* JerkJock: Thoroughly averted.

to:

* JerkJock: Thoroughly averted. Even though he's trying to kill you, he's only doing so because he's insane and believes that "they" are keeping him from returning to his parents until he does. Plus, as he hints, he's hopped up on the rage-inducing pheromones like all other Splicers.



* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain

to:

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillainPoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He's a misogynistic, entitled asshole, who makes it clear that he has huge problems with women who don't want to just fawn on him.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The Rumbler is an updated version of a cut Big Daddy from the previous game (which even made it onto some screenshots) code named "Slow Pro FUM" ("slow-moving, projectile-shooting, f'ed-up-melee"). The SPF had a single cannon which he had to kneel down in order to use and a huge hook for heavy damaging melee attacks in case the player got close. The SPF ended up being cut late in development, much to the chagrin of the designers. Eventually it was reworked into the Rumbler, with the hook replaced with the mini turrets (since they believed the Bouncer had the heavy melee department covered).

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally there was only going to be a single Big Sister who would be the real BigBad of the game: one of Jack's rescued Little Sisters who couldn't adjust to life on the surface and would return to Rapture and recreate her childhood by kidnapping children to make into new Little Sisters. In another version, Sofia Lamb would still be the BigBad, but there would still be a single Big Sister as TheDragon, which would be revealed to be Eleanor (hence why in Audio Diaries Sofia still refers to Big Sister in the singular). Thus you would fight the Big Sister in a series of [[HopelessBossFight Hopeless Boss Fights]] where you had to survive and damage her enough for her to retreat. Eventually the developers scrapped this since they felt knowing that the Big Sister would always escape would undermine the excitement of the battles as well as feeling that "the Big Sister being YOUR Little Sister" was a weak twist. [[spoiler: In a way they partially kept the twist, with ONE of the Big Sisters being the protagonist's Little Sister-only she was Delta's Little Sister, not Jack's.]]

* [[SmarterThanYouLook Smarter Than He Looks]]: There are few hints that the Brute is a lot cleverer than most of his dialogue would imply; he can be heard talking about the necessity of bone density to back up the muscle mass he's gained, and some of his dialogue can be surprisingly eloquent. Plus, Leo Hartwig, the original Brute, cobbled together the Brute-splicing formula himself, and goes into battle accompanied by hacked security bots.

It helps that with his great strength splicing up to get stronger isn't much of an issue, letting him keep a clearer head than the rest.

to:

* BadassMustache: He has a pencil lip mustache though calling him "badass" maybe not be quite right.
* BodyHorror: Downplayed as they seemed to have used less plasmids than others but still enough to be driven mad among other reasons.
