* DuelingGames: Between this game and ''Videogame/TheLastOfUs''. Both games were hotly anticipated and feature a [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal gruff, grizzled, guitar playing protagonist]] with a [[DarkAndTroubledPast questionable past]] (both voiced by Creator/TroyBaker) who is tasked with escorting a young girl (with different variations of the same name: Elizabeth/Ellie) through dangerous territory and focus on the development of the relationship between the two. Upon their respective releases, both games were incredibly well received by critics and gamers alike, with the both of them being a stronger contender for the title of "Game Of The Year".

** Saltonstall, the bellowing man you see in the trailer, is almost completely cut out of the game. You hear some token references to him and [[spoiler: find his scalp nailed to a board by the Vox Populi.]]

** On the same note of the younger-Comstock politician posters, an even older variation showing a smug glasses-wearing Comstock and a building with old textures exists as a far-away EasterEgg within the game, showing what he may have looked like during the 2010 era of gameplay.

** On Concept art and unused quest lines indicate that Booker originally had to salvage various parts for the same note of Air Grabber in ''Burial at Sea'', including a hook from the younger-Comstock politician posters, an even older variation showing a smug glasses-wearing Comstock cut Pneumo Bots, and a building with old textures exists as a far-away EasterEgg within the game, showing what he may have looked like during the 2010 era of gameplay.
Elizabeth assemble it on a workbench.

** On the other hand, Claire Hummel, one of the character artists for ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'', upon seeing porn of the Lutece twins, remarked that she was upset ''that people were drawing them in modern underwear''. The artist then provided a [[http://shoomlah.deviantart.com/art/Dressing-Rosalind-Lutece-373216479 visual guide]] on what sorts of undergarments Rosalind Lutece would actually wear.

** Daisy Fitzroy was initially white - looking more like an {{expy}} of Sophia Lamb - and less nuanced - she was an anarchic intellectual, representative of hard-left revolutionary intellectuals in the 20th century.

** Before the setting of the game had been finalized, TheRenaissance was one of the time periods considered. This was dropped when ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreed2'' came out.

** "Disney Princess" for Elizabeth due to her resemblance (both physical as well as personality-wise) to [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Belle]]. She even sings.

* IKnewIt: WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment figured out the big ending twist in the first quarter of the game entirely by accident, with him saying that sometimes things just click when you didn't mean for them to.

*** Gameplay also implied some people were dimensional hoppers, as Saltonstall briefly becomes a communist and heavily anachronistic pop culture references pop up from the Vox (one tells Booker to "[[TheLoneRanger keep moving, Kemosabe]]"). In the final product, people ''do'' dimensionally hop, but unwillingly, and it usually leaves them insane.

** In ''Burial at Sea'', the Frosty Splicer is modeled after the Vigor Junkie, a cut concept from ''[=BioShock=] Infinite''. So, in a way, something that could have been actually came to be. Interestingly, the Old Man Winter Plasmid started as a fan-made Vigor made by a fan nicknamed Trie215.
