* AffablyEvil: Not the one Isaac fights, which doesn't have any speaking lines, but the ones speaking through the "prophet" in the Awakened DLC are rather polite for planet-eating abominations.

* HollywoodAtheist: Supplemental lore unlocked in the New Game + mode for the first game reveals he's actually very negative towards Unitology, mostly because his mother joined the group and spent money that was supposed to pay for his college education on getting up the ranks, forcing him to go to a substandard college, which severely impacted on his career choices. It's zigzagged in that, according to [[AllThereInTheManual setting lore]], atheism is the ''[[OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions norm]]'' in the Dead Space universe, and he's actually validated in disliking Unitology, what with TheReveal of the church over the series as a mad cult worshipping the Necromorphs.

to:

* AssholeVictimAssholeVictim: She murders Dr. Kyne and tries to strand Isaac on the Ishimura rather than return the Red Marker to its pedestal on Aegis VII, despite being told it's the only way to stop the Necromorphs. Then she traps Isaac, steals the Marker back (reawakening the Necromorphs) and mocks him over Nicole being dead but Isaac being in denial. She's well and truly deserved it by the time that the Hive Mind crushes her.

* SanitySlippage

meets during his run on the Ishimura, Dr. Mercer's insane beliefs make him the antagonist (as opposed to the necromorphs, whose lack of personality means they are little more than obstacles).

Mercer ''worships'' the necromorphs, believing that the transformation into a necromorph is the promised "Convergence" of body, mind and soul preached by his cult, so he actively tries to "assist" others in becoming necromorphs.
** DiscOneFinalBoss
Emphasizing the fact that Mercer is an unhinged fanatic even by the standards of the other Unitologists, there's a looping video in one of the dorms before you encounter the Hunter for the second time where he tries and fails to convince a band of offscreen Unitologists to accept that the necromorphs are the Convergence promised by the church -- and fails, as they turn their backs on him in disgust.
* BeardOfEvilDiscOneFinalBoss: Played with. Mercer is the closest thing to an antagonist during the second half of the Ishimura arc, and ultimately Isaac does have to kill him... but, he's an AntiClimaxBoss who simply gets turned into an ordinary Enhanced Slasher -- a quick player can even prevent him from being infected altogether.

to:

* DistressedDamsel DistressedDamsel: Isaac's initial goal is to rescue her, believing she's trapped in some kind of terrible situation.
