Added DiffLines:

* NonLinearCharacter: Due to being [[spoiler: scattered across space and time]], the Luteces can see the past, present, and future all at once. A good many of their personality quirks and supernatural abilities are derived from the fact that they can see all possibly realities.

Added DiffLines:

* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: [[spoiler: As Episode Two of ''Burial at Sea'' reveals, the Elizabeth that took part in Episode One was promptly killed by the Big Daddy she had manipulated Final Comstock into aggravating, as in its rage it considered her a threat to Sally and she couldn't get the chance to open a Tear and flee Rapture before it impaled her on some rubble. This, and her guilt over manipulating Sally, ultimately led to Elizabeth being KilledOffForReal.]]

** Of course, one can just as well argue that they're the game's ''BiggerBad'', seeing as how [[spoiler: Columbia only exists because Rosalind was willing to let Comstock exploit her work if it meant she could finally bring Robert into her universe]].

Added DiffLines:

* KillItWithWater: Though they're resistant to Shock Jockey, perhaps due to being powered by it, this means that the basic water blast attack of Undertow will temporarily paralyze them, giving you a better chance to land a heart-shot.

** You can explore the Luteces' house later in the game. There is only one bed.
** In ''Burial at Sea: Episode Two'' one of the audio logs reveals that [[spoiler:Robert wants to have children. Rosalind has apparently put a lot of thought into returning to a version of Columbia where they can go back to being ordinary humans and potentially start a family together, but she's hesitant to give up all the knowledge and power they've obtained after becoming [[PhysicalGod Physical Gods]]. It's implied that this is the reason that Robert decided to attempt to save Elizabeth and Booker, even threatening to leave Rosalind if she didn't participate in the plan.]]

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: So, after essentially ''causing'' the entire mess by allowing Comstock to found Columbia and creating Elizabeth, what do they get? Why, all eternity to study TheMultiverse in the company of each other, whom they are quite blatantly implied to be in love with. Some punishment.]]



* NeverMyFault: Zigzagged. [[spoiler: Rosalind cares absolutely nothing for the fact that she is to blame for the rise of Comstock and Columbia, but Robert recognizes his guilt in the matter and is determined to make amends for it.]]



A "Heavy Hitter" enemy that resembles a clockwork soldier. Originally designed as tour guides, they were given ridiculously unnecessary amounts of armor and firepower to help combat foreign spies, and now serve as mobile tanks.

* ApologeticAttacker: If you listen carefully, you'll realize that quite a few of their combat "taunts" aren't actually taunts at all. They're shouting at you to ''run away'' so they won't be forced to hurt you in the incoming berserk rage. And when they electrify the Sky-Lines, they'll preface it with "GET DOWN!", as a warning that if you don't let go, things will very shortly suck. [[spoiler:Further emphasized by the fact that, in the BadFuture version of Columbia, a photograph of a Handyman has been added to a bulletin board of known sinners -- the "sin" in question being ''pacifism".]]

Added DiffLines:

* HumanResources: The basic principle behind the Handyman? Take a sick, possibly dying person and cram them into a crude augmentic exoskeleton to keep them working. Worse, there's a rare quote from Vox Handymen that makes it clear that Comstock and Fink are willing to make Handymen ''out of perfectly healthy people'' if they think there's a need for them.
