Despite that, rebuffs him before either he or the audience ever gets to see it. Ultimately, Anders does not die and makes through the rest of the game intact.

* SarcasticClapping: Does it during his confrontation with Max.



An american ex-cop, who Max stumbles upon in some unlikely places during his romp in Brazil. He is essentially what Max could have been if he had a chance to live a normal life.

* FatalFamilyPhoto: Averted. If Max meets him in the club in the second level, Anders actually offers to show Max his family pictures, though Max refuses. Despite that, he does not die and makes through the rest of the game intact.
* TheFoil: To Max. They have the same basic background - both are former policemen from the US north - but otherwise couldn't be any more different, as Anders is a happy, well-adjusted man with a loving family, who came to Brazil on charity business and has no desire to involve himself in any action or heroics. He exists to further accentuate how messed up and broken Max's life turned out to be.
* NonActionGuy: He'd seen his share of things before his retirement, but now he's more than happy to stay away from all action and danger.



[[folder:Bremer]]

to:

[[folder:Bremer]]
[[folder:Brewer]]

Max's neighbour in Hoboken after his retirement from the police. He died during the mafia attack in a suicide explosion, taking several of mafia goons with him.

* ConspiracyTheorist: Appears to have been one before his death.
* MadBomber: A very rare benevolent example. He saves Max's life by blowing a gangster who had Max on gunpoint away with a shotgun, then blows himself up, killing several more gangsters as well.
* OneSceneWonder: Has only one scene in the game, but makes a hell of an impression in it.
* ShellShockedVeteran: He's been in the army judging from his jacket, and he's definitely not all there.
* StringTheory: His appartment is a messy hole, filled with makeshift explosives, his own rambling notes and writings on the walls. Somewhat disturbingly, he has a separate board with newspaper clippings on it specifically about Max and his past.
* SuicideAttack: He meets his end in one.

* EvilDoctor

to:

A somewhat famous plastic surgeon, and apparently an acquaintance of Branco family. [[spoiler: He is also involved in OrganTheft ring ran by Crachá Preto and UFE, by performing the actual organ-removing surgeries.]]

* EvilDoctor
AintTooProudToBeg: He frantically begs you (and then Serrano) to spare him when you find him in the derelict hotel.
* DirtyCoward: He panics and blubbers when you meet him, spewing in rapid succession every possible thing he can come up with that would get Max to let him go - not realising how hollow each of them sounds nor noticing that Max isn't even listening.
* NonActionGuy: He's a surgeon, with all the combat skills that are taught in medical school.
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: He is a plastic surgeon[[spoiler: who is on a payroll by corrupt paramilitaries, and does the "organ harvesting" part of Crachá Preto's organ harvesting ring.]]
* WeHardlyKnewYe: He has only two short scenes in the whole game - one at the party in the first level where Passos explains who he is to Max, and one [[spoiler: in the abandoned hotel late in the game, where Max catches him as the surgeon performing the organ thefts, and Serrano kills him off-screen immediately after.]] Apart from commercials of his clinic you can catch on some TV sets, he is never even mentioned or brought up otherwise, and neither his reasons for his actions nor his character are never explored outside of what you can gleam in his short appearances.

* WrongGenreSavvy: As Max discovers from the various mythology textbooks in Lupino's club, he's fully aware of all the Norse symbolism going on in the first game and thinks it's all real. Thus the winter storm going on is the actual Ragnarok, and he is the Fenris Wolf marked to help usher in the end of the world. However, it's not real, Lupino is just ''really'' crazy.

Added DiffLines:

* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:Max didn't knew she was crooked when he shot her down. Even though everything turned out "fine" in the end, Max himself notes that it shouldn't serve as an excuse.]]

* GenreSavvy: Max knows how these sorts of ''film noir'' stories go and his role in them, and sometimes compares himself to Humphrey Bogart, the icon of the genre, in his various movie roles. That said, he isn't at all amused by the idea that his life has become a tired film clich&eacute.

* WrongGenreSavvy: When Max confronts him, Vinnie assumes he can't do anything since Max has no hard evidence and cops can't shoot mobsters without cause. Of course, he immediatly pulls a gun and tries to shoot Max, GIVING him a reason even if Max wasnt already rogue.
