** The rather graphic way Ellie kills an infected attacking Riley as the two tries to escape the mall.

* Score a headshot with a powerful weapon like the hunting rifle or shotgun. Instead of [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation leaving a neck stump with a clean white bone sticking out like a blob of mozzarella on an incredibly poorly made margherita]], the lower half of the head will still remain, much like real-life victims of high-caliber sniper rifles or shotguns.

* Pittsburgh. Just... Pittsburgh. Here, the civilians managed to successfully rebel against the military and became a group of bandits. As Joel and Ellie make their way though the city, they come across the corpses of numerous soldiers who were killed in pretty horrifying ways, such as getting lynched or lined up and shot execution style. Then they see the bandits start ambushing and gunning down innocent people in front of them.

*** Coming back to Sam's theory given what we see in the cut-scene [[spoiler:of him attacking Ellie]] and a glimpse of the behind the scenes footage of the actor's mocap during that particular scene (Grounded - Making The Last of Us), specifically, the way he is only [[spoiler:clawing and hitting with his hands on the ground around Ellie]] would suggest Sam's attempt at [[spoiler:suicide by survivor... maybe that's why some runners... run at you.]]
**** Might also qualify as FridgeLogic with the fungal infection. Hear me out: the fungal infection rewires the brains of the Infected to do as the fungal infection intends: to spread. And what is the most basest of human instinct, which has been tied in to several other zombie or zombie-esque genre media? To feed. Feeding back into Sam’s theory, and the above troper’s very interesting theory, maybe it’s a double-edged blade. The fungal infection is reacting off of the human instinct to feed—given one of the ways it’s transmitted through is biting—as well as the possibility that the runners are indeed suicidal to a degree. Perhaps the runners are reacting both to the fungal infection’s “instinct” to spread, as well as what the former person it is slowly taking over wants to end what little life and control they have over themselves by running at potential victims in the hopes that they’ll be killed with help.

*** Although [[spoiler:You only actually have to kill ONE of them (the one with the knife).]]

**It could also be a reference to the fact that his daughter was killed not by the infected, but by a regular soldier.

* The way people have come to treat those that get infected, regardless if they haven't turned yet. When Joel is walking with Tess early in the game, they come across soldiers scanning four people. When one of them turns out infected, the soldiers immediately put her down as if they were just getting rid of an insect. And when one of them tries to run before they can scan him, they gun him down.

** Several characters hint at the fact that Joel is a pretty aweful and violent person. Marlene suggests you sneak around soldiers, even though "it's not your style." As noted above, Bill says normal people scare him more than the infected and adds something like that Joel should know what he's talking about. He then refuses explain it further to Ellie, probably meaning Joel is exactly the type of person he would be scared of. And eventhough we don't really learn what happened between Joel and Tommy, it seems the problem was Joel's willingness to do anything to survive.

*** Oh, there's worse: you listen to the members of [[spoiler: his cannibal commune talking]], you realize that they actually have a somewhat functional democracy and free debates among themselves and [[spoiler: willingly '''elected''' him as their leader: he's not a tyrant who took over by force, he's not a cult leader lording over fanatics who follow without question, and knowing that his "compatriots" '''knew''' about his "tastes" and freely put him in charge]] make the whole sequence all the more horrific.
*** Well, there's no evidence that [[spoiler: they knew about his "tastes". It's possible that they elected him while ignorant of it at first, then continued to put up with it because David was a good leader. However, the whole thing with Ellie became too much for them and decided to stop "indulging" him once the whole thing was over.]]



* The high school in Lincoln. It was the town evac point, and all the abandoned buses, means it fell before everyone could be taken to the zones.

* In Pittsburgh, there is a note, where a soldier recounts watching, a mob, burn his squad alive. Potentially creepy for The Firefly/Hunters involved as well, as he implys he is going to personally hunt down and kill every single person who was there. Really alot of the scariest stuff in this game, happened off screen.
