* Same mission: there's a hidden room behind a bookshelf in a bedroom. [[spoiler: The walls inside are covered in rotating paintings of Emily Kaldwin's face, and there's a ragged women's outfit strewn on the floor. [[FridgeHorror Try not to think about]] what might have gone on in there.]]

* The in-game song, "Drunken Whaler", is much darker than the "Drunken Sailor" song it's based on. The original has some moderately reasonable suggestions. "Drunken Whaler"... Not so much - all lethal, and a good sign of how bad off this city is. The [[CreepyChild childlike voice]] singing doesn't help.

** The front kill of Edgar Wakefield in the Brigmore Witches deserves mention. You don't just kill him. You ''[[EyeScream plunge your sword into his eye]]''. Then you slooowly pull it out as he makes these ungodly sounds of pain.



* Arc Pylons and walls of light are bad enough reducing people to ash in a second. The DLC introduces arc mines, palm sized devices that can vaporise people and like spring razors, can be hidden any where.

** Many of the lethal kills are violent as well- lobbing off heads, slicing necks, breaking limbs and snapping sinew.

** From the images above, one can ily that most- if not all- of the Dunwall City Trials are Corvo's ''actual nightmares'', based on his fears-his failure to protect Jessamine, of losing Emily, of becoming a mindless killing machine...

** The statues of Delilah are creepy enough already, especially the first time she uses one to talk to Daud. But if you get in the line of sight of one while invading the Brigmore Manor, the statue will come to life and say ''"I see you!"'' JumpScare aside, she'll have alerted all enemies in the vicinity to your location, so you'll run away listening as the [[HellIsThatNoise hellhounds roar at you]] while the witches try to [[GreenThumb snare you with their eldritch vines]].
*** The worst statue is the one in the crypt, which has a bone charm at it's feet. That particular statue won't alert enemies, but it starts out covering it's face, in a manner reminiscent of [[NightmareFuel/DoctorWho the Weeping Angels]]. And like the Weeping Angels, when you look down to grab the bone charm, and look back at it again, it will be reaching out to grab you.



** poor guy is about to eat a sleep dart from Corvo, or if high chaos, a fucking knife in his face

* The Outsider looks ''especially'' demonic, if not outright Satanic when he appears before you after finding the Rune in [[spoiler: Granny Rags']] shrine to him in the Old Dunwall Sewers towards the end of the Flooded District level; He's bathed in an eerie red light from the shrine's candles, but because he's hovering in the air and looking down at Corvo, his eyes are heavily shadowed, as are two points on his forehead, giving him the impression of horns. It's probably the single-most unnerving of his appearances, which seems fitting considering the Flooded District ends up pitting you against [[spoiler: two other people who have received his Mark; Daud, the Empress's assassin no less and Granny Rags.

* Look very closely at the Low Chaos ending. One member of the audience in Emily's court is talking to a lady, while holding a large knife
behind his back, as if he's planning to stab her. It's bizarrely unsettling, especially considering how upbeat the ending is otherwise.

* TheVoid, with its fragments of buildings and scenery floating in nothingness, displaying characters from the "real world" frozen in time, some in the act of dying. The glowy blue apparition of the Outsider doesn't help matters.

* Go ahead an empathize with your targets to realize just how pants-shittingly ''terrifying'' it is to have a visit from Corvo. For example, when you go to abduct [[spoiler:Sokolov]], you can make the choice to talk to him instead of just straight-up knocking him out. Just stand there for a minute, silent, watching, and eventually he'll freak out and run past you, screaming for help...only to find that all of the dozen-plus guards are dead. The entire map is empty. Just him, [[AloneWithThePsycho Alone With The Assassin.]]
