* [[ForgottenFallenFriend: This is averted, surprisingly. [[spoiler:Both Adam and Quinn mention her at the end of ''The Missing Link'']].

Added DiffLines:

* CloudCuckoolander: Went ''fishing'' off the side of a ''cargo freighter''. There is a chair set up on the upper deck of the ship with beer and fishing equipment, and the player can also come across an email from one of the higher-ups for the fisherman to cut it out. While it's never explicitly stated that Quinn is the fisherman, if Adam visits Quinn's store early (before Keitner sends him there), he will find Quinn gone, and a note in the window stating that he had "Gone Fishing". [[spoiler: This is, of course, all a part of his cover.]]

* DuelingHackers: Nucl3arsnake/Frank Pritchard vs Windmill/Arie van Bruggen, though it seems that Frank is the better of the two. From the frustration that Windmill expresses in his e-mails, Frank was doing ''just fine'' keeping him at bay; it wasn't until Windmill discovered [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Sarif's backdoor access]] that he was able to get into Sarif Industries' system. In other words, Van Bruggen needed the computer security equivalent of the bank's owner leaving his vault and front door completely open and unlocked to get past Pritchard.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: His accent isn't Dutch, it's Caribbean which would make him from the Dutch Antilles or Suriname.

* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Adam's immune system is different to most people's, allowing his body to be extensively modified without rejecting the new parts. He doesn't need the neuropozyne that drives people insane. [[spoiler:Turns out he's the "subject x" Reed's breakthrough they were planning to reveal was based on.]]

** An in-game one occurs if you happen to get the high jump before the landing system; expect to take quite a bit of damage because the jump actually puts you higher than the minimum safe distance to come down.

** [[TheBigGuy Brawn]]: Lawrence Barrett, as spends his time firing [[{{BFG}} a minigun]] [[ArmCannon that retrects into his arm]].

* NiceGuy: He's probably one of the nicest characters in the game; even though he did give Adam some augmentions he didn't actually need without his consent, he meant all the best for him. See BenevolentBoss and HonestCorporateExecutive.

to:

** The first interpretation (transliteration from Arabic) is also quite appropriate, given the extremely high proportion of Middle Eastern immigrants in the real-life Metro Detroit area, nearly all of which settled in Dearborn, Henry Ford's home turf. Sarif, just like Ford before him, is a Dearborn guy trying to bring a product once strictly regarded as luxury (automobiles vs. augmentations) to the masses.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: Athena is the Greek goddess of wisdom, as well as the patroness of wise counsel in warfare. Athene Margoulis has been counseling David Sharif in the wisdom of corporate warfare since the beginning of his career.


Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: "Malik" means "peaceful" in Arabic, and she tends to prefer nonviolent resolutions to the various situations Adam lands himself in - but don't make the mistake of thinking she's a softy (see BewareTheNiceOnes above).
** Also heavily implies that she's a Dearborn native, possibly like David Sarif himself. See above.

** This can be taken further as of [[Videogame/DeusExMankindDivided Mankind Divided,]] where his arms now contain a gun, a BladeBelowTheShoulder, and [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs a gun that fires Blades Below The Shoulder]]. His arms also have tasers, and by directing the Icacus Landing System's artifical electro-magnetic field behind him rather than below, and releasing it in a burst, [[FoeTossingCharge he can propel himself forward to slam into an enemy with enough force to send them flying.]]

In other words, Van Bruggen needed the computer security equivalent of a house's owner leaving one of the entrance doors unlocked to get past Pritchard's security measures. [[note]]This is more or less TruthInTelevision, any network security expert worth their salt will tell you that ''any'' kind of "back-door" into a system is just asking to be exploited and used to easily bypass security protocols, and even encryption, which is normally extremely difficult to decode. This is especially relevant after the Snowden leaks, where multiple tech companies started using encryption to protect their users from NSA surveilance, causing some clueless authorities and politicians to demand "back-doors" for law enforcement purposes, despite security experts pointing out that you can ''never'' make a back-door that only the 'good guys' can use.[[/note]]
