* The game plays a sound when you shine a light on the light-sensitive paint that sounds a lot like heavy breathing. This is Zane, breathing through his diving suit-which he was in when he died.

* The noises that the Dark Presence makes while stalking Alan in the darkness. [[HellIsThatNoise There's just no possible description for it sounds like.]] Not a roar, not a scream, just..yeesh. Coinciding with the above example about the disappearing cops, it heavily implies that the Dark Presence has another, unseen form that stalks the woods surrounding Bright Falls, looking for new people to be Taken.

* The main story may have dropped most of the survival horror elements, but the arcade mode restores it completely. It's basically Alan Wake's version of NaziZombies, only you have no teammates and the higher tier weapons can only be unlocked by finding manuscript pages in story mode, making it almost impossible for players who decided to try it before tackling the main game. The basic premise is that you fight off a horde of Taken until the sun rises in ten minutes. Each location is heavily isolated, very creepy (the first level is set in a graveyard, for example), and supplies are limited. Oh, and the best part? After beating all of the already difficult normal levels you unlock the apply named [[NintendoHard nightmare levels]] which send waves of Taken at you right from the very start. If you haven't mastered the controls and item placements you will likely die before even getting to the halfway mark. So yeah, have fun.

* Mr. Scratch himself could probably fill up a Word page, but the most odd thing you'll notice about him, is how his name is pronounced by Alan in the manuscript pages: "Mr. S*static*". Although you can clearly read how his name is spelled and what it means, Alan cannot pronounce it as "Scratch". Adds to the feel that Scratch is something from a different realm than ours.

* The scene in which the Dark Presence consumes the cops that are hunting Alan. It's a prime example of NothingIsScarier. All we see are the cops' flashlights winking out one by one as we hear them screaming in panic that ''something'' is coming after them. Then the forest goes silent and we find nothing but broken squad cars...

** Later on, you have to go through a session of the episode without a firearm. Fortunately, you have someone with you who has a gun, but he's got poor aim compared to you and focuses on the biggest Taken he can see, regardless of how far away they are. On higher difficulties, you ''will'' be screaming at him to shoot the others because the Taken aren't after him, they're after ''you''.

** Later on in Episode 4 you can find one of the caches in a farmhouse and are attacked afterward by a Taken warning you to stay away from his daughter. Farmer's daughter joke, or was he protecting his family when the darkness took him? And just past the farmhouse you can find three marked graves [[spoiler: and the Dark Presence uses the ''skeletons'' of the remains to attack you like it does with other objects]]. ''Gah.''

* The fact that the all of the Taken were once townsfolk and that Bright Falls is a small town. When you think about it, Alan's battle against the darkness may have [[InferredHolocaust cost Bright Falls half its population.]]
