** With their sunglasses and long beards, Ox and Dusty look like they belong in ZZTop. The latter even shares the name of a member.

Added DiffLines:

* TheDreaded: If you're not prepared to deal with her when you startle her, she can easily dish out a healthy serving of DisproportionateRetribution with a side helping of UnstoppableRage.


Added DiffLines:

* GlassCannon: As far as being one of the most powerful Special Infected, she is this in comparison to the [[MightyGlacier Tank]].


Added DiffLines:

* KillItWithFire: Best way to deal with her. It's even an [[BurnTheWitch achievement]]


Added DiffLines:

* LightningBruiser: In the first game, and only for [=CPU=] controlled Tanks that are on fire.


Added DiffLines:

* MightyGlacier: In comparison to the [[GlassCannon Witch]], this pretty much describes the Tank.

Added DiffLines:

* RunningOnAllFours: They run on all fours, making them easier to identify from the other Infected.

An extremely bloated infected person. The mutation of this poor soul has apparently turned their bodily fluids into potent zombie pheromones, which is puked onto the survivors with impunity. The Boomer explodes violently upon death. The only Special Infected with obvious models for both genders.

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoAboveItAll: Nick tends to [[DeadpanSnarker chime and mock Coach and especially Ellis when an opportunity presents itself]], but occasionally he'll genuinely express interest and ask them about some of the things they like, like if the Midnight Riders are any good. Also, he rarely states that he wants to ride one of the carnival's rides if Ellis enthusiastically calls out Kiddieland.

** Her HairTriggerTemper was nerfed so much that, while in daytime "wandering" mode, she can take as much as 52 damage from stray bullets without being set off!



* TheVoice: Despite being a vital character for most of the second part of the game, we never really get to see what he looks like.

* TheVoice: Despite being a vital character for most of the second part of the game, we never really get to see what he looks like. Valve has even joked that he's a [[AnimateInanimateObject talking boat]][[note]]This was in response to why Virgil still talks to the player when playing the Last Man On Earth mutation; "Virgil isn't a man"[[/note]]



* EnmityWithAnObject: "He" is nothing more than a series of spawning algorithms. Valve and the players all anthropomorphism "him".
** [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]] has depicted the Director as a man shaded in black with a question mark, followed by a large group of people worshiping him like a god.
--> "I saw someone pray to the AI Director once. This is probably how cults get started!"



* NoFairCheating: The Director in Survival mode in ''Left 4 Dead 2'' will punish players who use exploits to stay away from zombies by spawning Spitter acid on top of them. If players manage to avoid the acid, the Director will then just damage players until they die. Of course, this is not foolproof since there are a few places in some maps where players can avoid the zombies and the Director will think they are still in the playing field. Even on God Mode, it'll hurt you.

* SerialEscalation: According to Ellis, Keith has suffered from third degree burns over 95% of his body twice (once making fireworks, once deep-frying turkey), lost two fingers and a toe to frostbite, broke both of his legs after driving his car off a cliff, built a shack out of mud, been stabbed by a Homeless man, got tear gassed by the police, snuck a paintball gun on a roller coaster, got attacked by an alligator, bombed by the military (among the bombs, Ellis claims, were nerve gas and cluster bombs), drowned in the Tunnel of Love, got cut up by his own "bumper-car" lawn mower leaving him with wounds over 90% of his body, got cement paved over him in a sewer after falling down an open manhole, lived in a graveyard for a year after getting kicked out of his house, was targeted for a lynching by a Klansman while in the graveyard, hung spit on the overhang in the Tunnel of Love, fell off a roller coaster onto the tracks with the ride still going, got a tattoo on his forehead saying "I'm a moron" for $200, ate three pounds of raw chicken (The in game subtitles say catfish), turned a recreation of colonial times into a raccoon fight in his backyard, drove across a river without using the bridge, married a couple, and would have even gotten married himself, had he not run away from his own wedding.

* BlackBestFriend: Eh, [[TheGhost possibly]]. One of the many, many things that have tried to kill him was a Klansman, so...
