[[spoiler:Through Booker's death at the baptism at the end of the game, the only universe which remained a constant was the one where he refused the baptism and never went through with selling his daughter -- an outcome which leads to Comstock never being "born", Columbia never being built, and neither civilization coming to an end. Essentially, he had to kill himself in an infinite number of universes so he and Anna can presumably live happy, normal lives.]]

* EarnYourHappyEnding: One possible interpretation of the post-credits ending, though in the most extreme variation possible.\\\

The part people argue about is whether he ''remembers'' what happened over the course of the story--events that, of course, were {{retcon}}ned out of existence ''by'' the ending itself--and will use them as motivation to get out of the bottle and NOT be willing to sell his daughter to clear debts.]]

* TheUnfought:Despite all of the foreshadowing and build-up, you never end up in a boss battle against Songbird. Instead, [[spoiler:''he'' joins ''your'' side for a battle against an army of enemy Zeppelins]]. In fact, it's stated that Booker will always fall to Songbird, and only succeeds [[spoiler:when an Elizabeth from the future has him pass Songbird's control song over to her past self]].

* ARealManIsAKiller: ''Burial At Sea: Episode Two'' reveals that they manipulated the entire situation that lead to [[spoiler: Elizabeth killing Daisy, believing this was the only way she'd have enough strength to bring down Comstock]].
* ASharedSuffering: Implied at the end to be partially why Robert is more sympathetic to Booker's plight than Rosalind, [[spoiler: as he experienced firsthand the painful physical and psychological trauma that comes with jumping between realities]].
