* BiggerBad: The Markers cause most of the problems in the series, whether directly by causing insanity or indirectly by instilling devotion to them over time. For this reason, [[spoiler:the Brother Moons]], being their reason to exist in the first place, take the role of the ManBehindTheMan for the entire series, [[spoiler:the one orbiting Tau Volantis]] being the primary one from the start of Unitology through VideoGame/DeadSpace3.

* [[spoiler:CosmicHorrorStory: The series has a universe filled with omnicidal PlanetEater [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] that have [[AbsentAliens consumed every other species up until mankind]], [[OurZombiesAreDifferent undead alien zombies]] created by esoteric alien technology, and to cap it off, the series seemingly ends with the said eldritch abominations finding and consuming all life on earth.]]

* InterfaceSpoiler: The subtitles in all three main games are very poorly timed, though DeadSpace3 is possibly the worst offender. Often, there will be several sentences of text on the screen which the voice actor might not finish reading for up to 30 seconds for dramatic effect. The subtitles can cancel out the drama by spoiling the revelations contained in the dialogue before the actor can get to it.

Plans for ''Dead Space 4'' were placed in DevelopmentHell after ''3'' didn't sell as well as Electronic Arts had hoped. Visceral Games are instead working on "something else," which ''they'' at least are probably enjoying after six years spent on the same Intellectual Property, and EA have not ruled out resuming work on the franchise at a later date.

Plans for ''Dead Space 4'' were placed in DevelopmentHell after ''3'' didn't sell as well as Electronic Arts had hoped. Visceral Games was then tagged to develop a brand new ''Franchise/StarWars'' single-player video game. In October 2017, EA announced they are instead working on "something else," which ''they'' at least are probably enjoying after six years spent on shutting down Visceral Games, leaving the same Intellectual Property, and EA have not ruled out resuming work on future of the ''Dead Space'' franchise at a later date.
in serious doubt.

[[spoiler: [[VideoGame/DeadSpace3 Dead Space 3: Awakening]] ends with Isaac and Carver shocking into Earth's orbit and trying to raise communications with [=EarthGov=] on several channels, getting silence on almost all of them... only for the last channel to finally erupt into bloodcurdling screams, revealing that the Brethren Moons have already reached the planet.]] Both of these sequences also end with crash-landings.

** Since they are made from necrotic flesh, their complete lack of metabolism makes their very aggressive, fast and energy-heavy activities practically impossible... unless you assume that the near-limitless energy fields emanating from the Markers somehow provide them with the power required for it.

*** According to in-universe lore, this is pretty much exactly what happens. Once out of the presence of a Marker signal, Necromorph tissue literally just destabilizes into decomposed goop.
