* ProphecyArmor: {{The Chosen|One}} playbook has a special ability that prevents them from dying until their Destiny is fulfilled--any event that would normally kill them is automatically negated with their Luck points.

* HeroicBystander: Bystanders of the Helper subtype are motivated to join the Hunters on their job. However, they are still considered a threat by the game, since the Hunters now also have to protect ''them'', too and the way they are played according to the Keeper's rules really does make them more of a liability than a help. Their role is not to fight the monster, but be beaten, abducted and murdered.

* HerosClassicCar: A "classic car" is a mobility option for the Mundane (though theirs is in "terrible condition"), the Professional, and the Wronged playbooks. Player characters form an EnsembleCast, so every one of them is technically a protagonist. It is set in the PresentDay, so a classic car is not something non-player characters normally drive in it, and the player characters who do automatically stand out.
