Jumping onto a skyline after the 15th wave in a ''Clash in the Clouds'' game shows he's just a pair of arms.

Added DiffLines:

* PermanentElectedOfficial: Maybe the best description of his position; Columbia is born in the image of the United States, but Comstock has absolute, unyielding authority within the city. He is king-like, although never referred to as such, and his devotees not only give him their allegiance but their ''worship.''

** In ''Burial at Sea'' episode 1, [[spoiler: Elizabeth begins showing scuffs and bruises after passing a certain point in the game.]] In episode 2, we don't see her face for much of it due taking on her point of view as the player character; therefore [[spoiler: seeing the extent of her injuries in a mirror towards the end of the game is a bit of a shock]].

Added DiffLines:

* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: Both in the main game and again in ''Burial at Sea'', Elizabeth, after being a faithful ally throughout, turns on Booker at the very end, causing his death both times. While her motives might be related to her desire to be TheAtoner, it's still a turn.]]

* NecessaryEvil: In a strange way, his position in Columbia. While Comstock is the beckon of hope and virtue to the people, he allowed Fink to oversee the unpleasant parts of life in the city and the day-to-day dirtiness that comes with keeping the city afloat (One Voxophone implied Fink first started taking aboard a servant-class to address civil unrest at Columbia not being as heavenly as promised). Having Fink handle these things means Comstock can believe himself to be uninvovled in the suffering it causes. Fink even comes to realize this in a Voxophone, pointing out that he's indispensable because he lets Comstock hold onto a clean conscience.

An enemy exclusive to the ''Burial at Sea'' DLC, these Splicers have consumed a massive amount of the Old Man Winter Plasmid, turning their bodies into ice.
----

* BadassBeard: They have a long beard that make them look like Santa Claus.

* MadeOfIron: He does take a lot of punishment in the game, after all. He gets baptized and almost drowned early on, gets stabbed in his right hand, and in one particular series of scenes, Booker gets [[spoiler:hit in the head with a wrench by Elizabeth, wakes up only to get punched in the face by a Vox, and is pushed off an airship from a pretty fair height]]. What does he do? [[NoSell Gets up like nothing happened]] and keeps going.
