** The penultimate level of chapter one, "Casualties of the Wingding Zone": the player character is sent to retrieve a useful device from the domain of a self-professed "porn shaman". Who would call themselves that? [[spoiler: Someone whose lair is powered, operated, and comprised of mutilated women, that's who. In his sole terminal, the shaman gleefully states that many of his victims have either fallen to despair or are desperately trying to thrash their way out of their confinement. At one point, Fractilion (one of your "allies") warns the player character that the same fate could befall them if they're not careful.]]

** In "Fatum iustum stultorum", [[spoiler:the real humans have left for Earth, so the Pfhor just start teleporting out as many simulacrums as they can. Some portions of the level are very dark and underwater, and it's difficult to punch the simulacrums effectively underwater, since they move faster than you do - bear in mind that you don't have any underwater weapons in [=M2=] other than your fists. It can be very paranoia-inducing trying to kill off the simulacrums underwater, particularly on Total Carnage, where having one blow up on you will take off about 3/4 of a bar of health.]]

* ''[[http://simplici7y.com/items/spatial-outpouring-chapter-1-1-0-3 Spacial Outpouring]]''. Was ''Infinity'' not unnerving enough for you? Here's a surreal scenario with dark, abstract art/sound design a la [[YumeNikki Yume Nikki]] and an ominous, ever-present sense that something's not right.

** [[AntiHero Paco]]'s back story. [[spoiler: In a past life, he braved the [[PathwaysIntoDarkness anomalous pyramid]] and unknowingly caught the attention of its 'pilot', Joshua, who was so impressed that he gave Paco his mark. Centuries later, Paco--now among the ten battleroids--tried and failed to defend Tau Ceti IV; when he was rescued from the derelict UESC ''Marathon'', he was so overwhelmed by despair that he ''attempted suicide''...over and over, because ''he couldn't die''. There was nothing Ian's team could do for him except wipe his memory and hope it buried the underlying trauma.]] Just to twist the knife in further, he learns all this [[spoiler: after Joshua has torn Paco's soul from his body to become the Reaver and sent him to tear a bloody swath through his own allies; Ian snaps him out of it, but also makes it abundantly clear to Paco that he's on his own from here on out.]]
