* WhatTheHellHero: If [[spoiler:Shaun dies and Ethan lives]], she will callously tell Ethan that life must go on and that she'd like to have a child with him. Thing is, she tells him all this [[spoiler:as he is standing over his son's grave a few hours after his funeral had taken place]]. I'm sure I speak for many people when I say that this was extremely out of line for the character.

* AdultFear: Nothing does it quite like a serial killer who kidnaps children. And who can forget [[MemeticMutation JASOOOOOON!]]
* AlmostKiss: Shared with Madison, it's just up to the player if they go through with it.



* ClusterFBomb: Ethan occasionally delves into these when he sees what his trials entail, but he only really goes to town if you don't do all the trials and end up without all the letters of the address Shaun's being held at.



* DrivesLikeCrazy: The Bear trial requires Ethan to drive at 60 MPH on a rain-slicked freeway on ''the wrong side of the road''.



* GangstaStyle: Ethan uses this on the drug dealer briefly in the Shark trial.



* OptionalSexualEncounter: Between himself and Madison.



* PleaseWakeUp: [[spoiler:During his attempts to revive Shaun via CPR. If Ethan has come to the warehouse alone, Shaun ends up doing this himself moments later when he's gunned down by police outside.]]



* StressVomit: Ethan will vomit if you make him kill the drug dealer during the Shark trial.



* ActionSurvivor: Shared with Ethan.
* AllJustADream: Madison fighting the burglars in her apartment.
* AlmostKiss: Shared with Ethan, it's just up to the player if they go through with it.



* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Madison is the most bright-eyed, well-dressed insomniac you'll ever meet.



* CaptainObvious: "It's a painkiller, it'll help ease the pain."



* FanDisservice: The striptease in Sexy Girl may be this more than {{Fanservice}} because Madison is being ''[[ShamefulStrip forced]]'' to remove her clothes.

* HotScoop

to:

* HotScoopHotScoop: She's a journalist and is ''very'' attractive.



** Within minutes of her initial appearance in the game, Madison has an exceptionally long quick-time event in which she fights home invaders in her underwear. This scene has absolutely no effect on the plot.
*** Just like having her take a shower before the home invaders hit, with Madison flaunting her well-endowed upper body completely naked for quite some time.
** ''Especially'' in the Sexy Girl chapter, where she unbuttons her shirt, rips off part of her skirt so the bottom comes to just below her ass, and does sexy dancing in high heels. It would be especially heavy {{Fanservice}} if you weren't concentrating on the QTE to make her dance well.
** When she fakes having sex by moaning, etc. in Paco's office to trick his guard from coming in, leaving Paco's mouth dropped open in shock.

* SkippableBoss: The main objective of the level is to escape White's house alive; if actually ''fighting'' the knife-wielding psychpath doesn't appeal, then Madison can easily call the police from inside the house and wait until they arrest him, or just slip out the door without White noticing.
