* 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].

* How is it that the events of this game, as in world-shattering events that changed the course of human history, don't seem to have any impact on the original? It's almost like people have completely forgotten that they ever happened. That's because they did or rather they were manipulated into doing so. With control over Picus and an AI tasked with altering what people are talking about, possibly even thinking about, it would be child's play for the Illuminati to rewrite history to serve their purpose.

** Actually, the arm was lost in the same skiing accident (I think it was a skiing accident) that cost him the easy use of his legs. That's why he's got that big [=cane/crutch=] thing that he [[spoilers: used to defend himself on Panchea]].

* "It's not the end of the world, but you can see it from here." Dramatic a quote though it was, one could say that it was an obvious hint towards the dystopia that Deus Ex would become. With VideoGame/DeusExMankindDivided kicking off only two years later and the world already receding into a global crisis, however, perhaps it was far more immediate foreshadowing than we realized - [[spoiler: the events at Panchea ultimately may not of been the sole reason, but whatever Adam did there really did act as the trigger to the smoking gun that causes the mass anti-Aug sentiment and prompted the steady decline over the next several decades with no one to stand in the Illuminati's way anymore.]]
