** The men were on the take by corrupt authorities. They would just claim it was a gang dispute and there was bloodshed. Marcelo and Victor may had to play a cleaner to make everything look like that but as Da Silva said, Daphne had a messy divorce and it was easy to cover up the murder

** it's heavily implied Max is an UnreliableNarrator and the sheer body count he racks across the three games is an exaggeration caused by his guilt complex

* What's the deal with the yacht max is on getting attacked by Pirates/Terrorists/Thugs in the Panama Canal? The Panama Canal is a vital economic artery between the Caribbean and the Pacific Ocean and thus is very heavily patrolled. It's probably one of the safest waterways in the world as far as pirate attacks are concerned. Even if it were to be attacked, the local law enforcement would be on the attackers like flies on honey once the alarm went out.

* [[spoiler: Victor Branco sends Passos to go recruit Max in order to make him the fall guy.]]. The problem is, really, I can't think of why. Why did they need to blame a foreigner when there were crime syndicates and paramilitaries already in place to do the job.

** ''Max Payne'' began development in late 1996, the team that worked on it was entirely in Finland, and the episode with Faith staking that guy aired in 1999. It's entirely possible that the in-joke was put into the game before the episode aired, or that it's a joke specifically referring to the Kristy Swanson movie, where vampires didn't simply blow up into ashes upon death.

* Okay this is very minor but there's a bit where Max finds a guy killed with a wooden stake, he tried to identify his killer as Buff...[[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer you know where this is going.]] It was actually Faith who killed someone that way in the show, shouldn't she had been used instead? Or might that make the reference a little too obscure?

** Likely a subliminal result coming from early instances of the drug's use, as well as its name. Hallucinations aren't 100% random, and Valkyr would bring up memories of the Valkyries. If a few people testify that they had those hallucinations, it would lead to other users thinking of the same thing and thus influencing their brain into having that hallucination.[[/folder]]
