* Jackie Estacado in general.
** Letís put it in simple terms: Jackie Estacado, with the powers of The Darkness, is basically Image Comics and Top Cowís answer to Marvelís Spiderman and Daredevil, along with DCís Batman...without a no-killing rule. Think about that for a second.
** Humans have a natural fear of serpentine creatures lurking in the dark. Jackie is this fear personified.
** The idea of a mafia hitman has some TruthInTelevision from anyone who has knowledge on crime families will know how this is, but imagine if this was a superhero who both worked for the mob and had demonic powers...

* Jackie Estacado in general. Despite being the [[HorrifyingHero hero of the comics and game,]] he is basically a MookHorrorShow towards those stupid enough to get in his way.

** The idea of a mafia hitman has some TruthInTelevision from anyone who has knowledge on crime families will know how this is, but imagine if this was a superhero who both worked for the mob and had demonic powers...powers. While Jackie is a more heroic example as stated before, mafia hitmen are [[NothingIsScarier a very nightmarish reality.]]

** Prism of the Brothers: The artifact that the Brotherhood supposedly used to capture the Angelus. However, when Jackie shows it to Johnny in the present day, he can't sense anything in it. So where is the Angelus now? [[spoiler:By the end of the game, Jackie finds out - the hard way.]]

** Hell, even Richard "[[VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}} Raz]], [[WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers Dagget]], and [[WesternAnimation/InvaderZim Zim]]" Horvitz manages to be creepy as hell as the Berserker Darkling.

-->'''Johnny:''' The Brotherhood had raised him as one of their own! So imagine, if you will, the only family you've ever had, subjecting you to merciless and unrelenting torture, and they won't even tell you why! ... The hell of it is, this was only the first of Twelve Tortures. The Darkness didn't manifest itself until the fourth. Which means the Brotherhood weren't even sure that they had the right guy! And that fact didn't even slow them down! These are bad, bad people Jackie. And they have it in them to be a whole lot worse!

** For reference, the artifact that Johnny talks about in the above quote, the Blinding Sun, is basically a pear of anguish, a real life torture device.
* The Angelus has a few moments in the relic backstories, too.
** Roanoke's Bane: When the Darkness first came to America via one of the settlers at Roanoke, the Angelus possessed a Croatoan maiden and killed everyone there during the night - and still failed to kill the Darkness's host, who was away getting supplies. When Darkness and host had returned, the Angelus had already gone, leaving the village defenseless against the Darkness.
** Ashes of the Unnamed: When the Brotherhood first managed to capture the Darkness in the Siphon, it returned the favor by turning them into what they are now. However, one of the brothers couldn't be turned, and chose to act against the Brotherhood by freeing the Darkness. This pissed off the Angelus so much that it absolutely destroyed him, body and soul.

* The patchwork World War I soldiers in the Hell levels. The sad, stoic way most of them stood around, seeming to understand and accept their fates. Except for the few who had gone completely mad muttering insanities to themselves and you. It gets even worse e when you think about how you'd probably need three or four soldiers from the actual war to have enough pieces left over to make just one of these guys.
