* Though it's a confirmed bug, people dying for no apparent reason when plugged with a tranquilizer rifle is not completely unrealistic: when you use enough sedative to knock an average person out in a matter of seconds, a pre-existing medical condition or a few shots of booze taken beforehand can amplify the effect to its logical extreme.

Even [[DeathByFallingOver hitting the ground the wrong way]] can have lethal consequences.

* This one is more Fridge Humor. After neutralizing the MCB as part of a quest, you can go to the bottom of their hideout and sell their weapons to [[SecretShop Saurat,]] who probably sold them to the gang in the first place. Now if you took them out non-lethally, you can imagine a scene of the gang lining up in front of Saurat's shop to buy back ''their own guns''.

* Walking out of the Detroit Police Station after completing both the main quest mission and the sidequest with Megan's mother, you might feel like you just walked out of another [[DungeonCrawling dungeon crawl]] like the first mission. Well, the Police Station ''is'' designed like a dungeon, with guard patrols, cameras, air ducts, the works. Just because the cops are initially friendly if you convinced Hass to let you in doesn't mean you can ''completely'' ignore them; they'll shoot you dead if they catch you [[KleptomaniacHero looting, hacking,]] or [[DisproportionateRetribution loitering in a restricted area.]]

* After getting augmented, Adam takes up smoking in order to deal with the stress, since his augmentations allow his lungs to ignore the normally harmful effects of smoking. Sounds reasonable - except that [[VideoGame/DeusEx 25 years later]], when JC Denton and his state-of-the-art nano-augs try some cigarettes, he kills himself within ten packs! How does this make sense?

**Adam's augments are mechanical in nature, and heal the damage caused by the smoking, same as they heal bullet wounds. JC's nanite implants heal by hyper-stimulating biological processes to speed up the healing, without dealing with the direct damage of the smoking (ie cancer), meaning they end up just causing the cancer to quickly grow out of control and destroy the lungs, as opposed to Jensen's slower but more through mechanical healing.

* Before leaving for the hostage mission at the very start of the game, Prichard explains that Jensen's augs will display biomedical data if he's in pain. But the health display on your HUD, even when at maximum health, never fades. Safe to assume, then, that Jensen is in constant pain.

* ''Literature/TheBible'' gives us Adam, the first human, created by God. He is the ancestor of Jesus (the) Christ, a fusion of man and God who provides humanity with a path to Heaven. In the Deus Ex series, Adam Jensen is arguably the first true transhuman (able to accept augmentations without the usual side effects), created by some unknown entity. He is the progenitor of JC Denton, who (in one ending, at least) becomes a fusion of man and ArtificialIntelligence and leads humanity into TheSingularity.

* Seems somewhat lessened by the Director's Cut giving you the option to go totally non-lethal, but the ButThouMust aspect of having to kill the bosses is probably the game's way of telling us that yeah, Jensen's mostly a pacifist, but he ''really really wants to kill these people''.

After all, they're the reason he nearly died and lost Megan.

** I don't think Adam's eyes were replaced, since they look fairly ordinary through the game, plus if they had been he wouldn't nee the [CoolShades].
