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.

* 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]]

* TheVoice: Despite being EnmityWithAnObject: "He" is nothing more than a vital character for most series of spawning algorithms. Valve and the second part of players all anthropomorphism "him". ** [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]] has depicted the game, we never really 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 to see what he looks like.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. * TheFaceless ** [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]] has depicted the Director as a man shaded in black with a question mark, followed by a large group of people worshipping him like a god. --> "I saw someone pray to the AI Director once.

* 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...

If you have to end an example with "actually, you know what, he's really more of a [different and incompatible trope]," then it's probably Not An Example.
* MightyGlacier: The Tank has dangerous attacks and takes far more damage than anything else in the game. It's not slow, per se, only slower than a survivor with green health. When you factor in that some people may be injured when he shows up, or that they may get caught up on scenery while trying to flee, he can be a LightningBruiser.

* BigEater: This trope is never actually shown, but it has been assumed multiple times. One such time is when mentioning Burger Tank, he says that he can go for BBQ bacon burger, a large order of fries, an orange soda with no ice, and a piece of hot apple pie. He also likes eating pizzas sub style, claimed it to be a damned shame when the rainstorm washed all the [[ThatOneLevel sugar mill]]'s sugar away & might ask the others if they've seen a wedding cake somewhere after spotting a wedding going on in the park. ** He also refers to himself as a "One man cheeseburger apocalypse" and prays that the food court is spared when they enter the ruined mall.

* GlassCannon: Although she can barely take any more damage than a Boomer, her acid ''hurts'', and the only attack (from Special infected) that can destroy gas cans (only if Survivors have picked it up, then dropped it), which can ruin the progress of Survivors.
