* ImplacableMan: Really, the entirety of FEAR 3. The game could be described as a long string of apocalyptic disasters combined with continuous heavy assault by an army of clones, robots, and helicopters, as well as MindScrew psychic monster phenomena on a scale that can only be rated as "demonic", all ''completely and utterly failing to stop'' the Point Man. All the areas you play through are pretty much getting torn down around you.

All the areas you play through are pretty much getting torn down around you.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Badass}}: Being a reality warping HumanoidAbomination with awe-inspiring power pretty much singles you out as this.
* CurbStompBattle: Let's just say that the only real choices for you if you manage to piss her off is RunOrDie, and hope that something takes her mind off you in the time that you spend running.


Added DiffLines:

* ImplacableMan: Being sealed up didn't stop her from affecting the area around her to some extent, and when she finally does get out, everything up to and including nuclear detonations will only just make her even angrier.

* DoesNotLikeShoes: Alma is barefoot in her child form, even in flashbacks of her past life. Complete with FootprintsOfMuck.
* EldritchAbomination: She is ''horrifically powerful'', can [[GoMadFromTheRevelation turn people]] AxCrazy and make them worship her as a god, as the cultists can dictate in F3AR. She can [[MookMaker spawn various other abominations]] too through the Almaverse.

* DoesNotLikeShoes: Alma is barefoot in her child form, even in flashbacks of her past life. Complete As they often show her in her grass-grounded HappyPlace, it isn't too weird for her to go shoeless. When she appears as a ghost, however, the trait is completed with FootprintsOfMuck.
FootprintsOfMuck to make a point in creepyness.

Added DiffLines:

The Replica encountered in the first game are under Paxton Fettel's control, and are dubbed the "Series VI" versions. The Replica encountered in the second game are the "Series VII" versions, mostly stored in large underground vaults beneath Fairport, and are reactived by Alma's psychic signal. The third game also features Replica soldiers in the later levels, although their model type is unspecified.

* CloneArmy: They're all copies of Paxton Fettel, presumably to make them easier for him to control. Not perfect copies, but functional enough for their purpose.

* DecapitatedArmy: Want to put them all down at once? Kill their commander. They'll lapse immediately into dormancy. Until [[spoiler: Alma takes control]]. Interestingly, this only applies to the ones grown and conditioned for psychic commanders, as earlier versions were programmed to respond to voice commands, which is presumably why the Replica in the third game are still loyal to Armacham.



* KeystoneArmy: They're conditioned to go dormant if their commander stops giving them orders. During the intro of the first game, several are shown looking as though they're asleep on their feet, then abruptly straightening up, readying their weapons and marching off in ranks as Fettel takes control of them. Later [[spoiler:the Point Man shoots Paxton Fettel in the head, then turns to encounter a dozen Replica ''doing absolutely nothing''. They just stand in place, heads bowed, as animate as dolls.]]

Specifically,t hey aren't intended as the OneManArmy sort of 'em.supersoldier; instead they are marketed as cheap, reliable, loyal, and disposable soldiers who are just as well-trained as human soldiers but vastly cheaper and able to do missions that would be impossible for normal humans.

A grossly obese, geeky ATC engineer, one of the survivor left by the attack by Replica forces. He initially helps Point Man and the F.E.A.R. team in their task, not much time before revealing he is working for Genevieve Aristide to get them all killed and bury the Alma affair.

* AbhorrentAdmirer: Towards Alice Wade, if a voice mail about sexual harassment is to be believed.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Wears gawdy clothes and often behaves ilogically, like trying to hide behind a minuscule plantpot or crawl through a narrow ventilation shaft being the obese guy he is.

* CloningBlues: Notably ''averted''. Though the Replica clearly have their own emotions and independent thought processes, they are dependent wholly on their psychic commanders for objectives and orders, and otherwise aren't affected by the angst of being clones whose sole purpose is to fight and die. A possible comparison is ''Franchise/MetalGear's'' philosophy of "you're only alive when you're on the battlefield", to the logical and literal extreme. The Replica only 'live', act human, speak, think and so on when they're in use. In combat, they scream, curse, display fear, anger, surprise, argue with each other, even refuse orders, and generally act how you'd expect a reasonably bright human in a high-stress life-threatening situation to act. Without orders, they simply stand and breathe, like organic robots on standby mode. It's freaky.

* PrivateMilitaryContractors: This was originally how Armacham was going to market them. There's an unnervingly chirpy brochure that lists their many advantages over regular soldiers, including their quick and inexpensive production, their elite training, their simple maintenance, and their complete and utter lack of independent will or conscience. Cheap! Effective! Reliable!
